St. Margaret's at Cliffe is gorgeous! A lovely village in Kent, with great access to the nearby beaches and the white cliffs of Dover. A great spot to base fromwhile exploring the Kent coastline.
Headland is a lovely cottage minutes away from the local beach, and a quick walk to the stunning views of the cliffs nearby. The cottage itself is well equipped, well maintained, and very cosy. The 2 bedrooms are sufficient for a family of 4, especially for one like ours with young children. The living/dining/kitchen area is open plan and more than sufficient for a self-catering holiday.
The best part is the location of the cottage itself. We were able to head down to the local beach easily and walk up to the cliffs just about any time we fancied either. There is a very nice tea room / restaurant just up the road, and good dining a few minutes further. Also don't miss out Mrs. Knott's tea rooms at the South Foreland Lighthouse!
The owners, Maria and Michael, are wonderful. They stayed up late to accommodate our delayed arrival and were more than willing to help with the few things we needed. We felt very well looked after. Highly recommended!
We had chosen becuase of the location, which did not disappoint as easy walk to beach, to the white cliffs of Dover and to both Dover and Walmer castles. It was a great bonus that the cottage was so pleasant, clean, well designed and comfortable.
Awesome location with the beach and coastal walks right on your doorstep. Gorgeous little pub on the beach within walking distance. The accomodation was really cosy, clean and had everything we need for a home from home. Would defintely stay again
Booked for a long weekend with my family!
Place super clean and very well kept, with all the utilities you need for a good time!
Great, to have some fresh bread, butter, eggs and a nice bottle of fresh juice offered by the owners.
Kids and pet friendly with minutes walk from the Dover cliffs and the Coast Guard pub which was really nice indeed! The location is perfect, in a very quite place with a lot to see and near Dover Castle and other tourist attractions!
I would give a 5 star for the place the only and only let down was the bed and mattress which was super uncomfortable. Need to be changed asap! I would book again but just if the changes get done before it!
Overall the place is fantastic and I do recommend it!
The place itself was very nice and clean. There were good utensils for cooking and there was a fresh loaf of bread on the counter waiting for us. It is located within walking distance to the lower part of the white cliffs which is a nice place to hang out for a morning coffee if the weather is nice. There is a small town near by if you need anything urgent. If not the town is not so far that it is hard to get to.
Ideally situated to explore the Kent countryside. Comfortable apartment offering all home comforts. Ideal for a peaceful break walking the dogs
Our family spent a week during Easter school holidays at Headlands.
The accommodation is great, and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay (stove, huge refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer). The beds were comfortable, the pillows fluffy, and the water pressure in the shower was much better than what we have at home!
A special thanks to Maria and Michael for allowing our children to play in their garden with an amazing treehouse. Ever since we returned my 4-year old son has been dreaming of having one of his own!
The area is definitely worth visiting, as it is brimming with history and natural beauty alike! Dover Castle, Walmer Castle and Canterbury are unmissable, and we thoroughly enjoyed local walks to the lighthouse, and along the beach which is minutes away.
My 9-year old daughter got so inspired by the unusualness and beauty of the white cliffs, that she wrote the following poem:
The white cliffs of Dover
Coated with white chalk over,
The pinky sunset is now on,
Before the dark I must be gone.
I must describe their looks to you,
So please listen, please do, please do.
You think it must be a surprise,
To see white cliffs before your eyes.
For cliffs are usually brown and grey,
And rather black after the day.
The people love this pretty sight,
And I agree, I think they're right.
At the bottom there are waves,
Running away is fun for days,
So please do gawp if you ever see,
The giant cliffs in front of me!
