The house was as advertised, it is close to the prom and the high street which feature many pubs and eateries. The host was excellent and recommended places to eat which was really useful. The house was well appointed and clean
Flotsam is in an excellent location.....close to bars, restaurants, shops and the sea front. There are good walks along the coast in both directions. The house itself is warm and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Charming cottage, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Lovely light bedrooms and very well equipped with books, hairdryers, hot-water bottles, all you need in the kitchen etc. and a helpful owner. Perfect location at the quiet end of the High Street in the conservation area and only a short walk from the train station for non-drivers. Cottage is opposite the Saturday market, just two minutes from the sea, great old-fashioned pub round the corner, plus various charity shops and two wool shops!. There are plenty of good coffee shops close by, it's very near to the Astor Theatre, Linden Hall Art Gallery, charity shops, great delis and much more. Thoroughly enjoyed my week and hope to return.
A very comfortable well equipped cottage. Very convenient for shops and beach.
We liked all the art work in the cottage.
Stayed here for a month, alone and with two friends. Deal is a quiet and charming town with a bit of seaside fun attached and there are more than enough neighbouring attractions. Also London is around 90 minutes away from Flotsam cottage's front door.
The cottage is an excellent place to stay. V. near beach. V. near high street shops. V. near railway station and two major supermarkets. And yet v. quiet. Cottage's facilities are excellent. Can't think of anything to complain of, or ask for improvement in. Except perhaps the sharpness of the kitchen knives but this is almost universal in holiday rentals. Some kind of (justified?) fear exists perhaps that good knives will be stolen, I suppose. I was a little worried before arriving that the position of the living room (right on the main street) would be a problem, with people staring in. It was rather the reverse, with me staring out at unaware passers by.
So, thank you Alan and Kate. Full marks.
P.S. Forgot to say that the living room acoustics are fantastic. The stuff on my iPod (fitted into the simple player provided) sounded fresh and young again.
Visited Deal as I was born here and moved when I was very young, so wanted to explore the area. Travelling with my Mum, husband and 2 children, 7 and 4. House was great, as two bedrooms on top floor, so we took this floor, leaving my mum on 1st floor. Meant we were not on top of each other. Had everything we needed and had an enjoyable stay. Very comfortable. The only issue we had was that there was only seating for 4 in lounge, and with 5 someone had to sit on dinning room chair.
