About the property

Cottage in Deal, Kent, England

Just a stone’s throw from the sea, Pebble Beach Cottage is perfectly placed for you to enjoy all the many charms of Deal. Its peaceful location guarantees a good night’s sleep, yet the lively High Street with its quirky independent shops, markets and cafés is a mere stroll away along the unspoilt promenade. An even shorter walk brings you to the Strand, where you’ll find the green and bandstand, a family run bakery, pubs, convenience stores and one of Deal’s best breakfast spots looking out over the Channel. You can even buy freshly caught fish direct from the boatmen on the beach. Everything you need is right here.

Deal itself is a picture perfect Georgian seaside town, rich in maritime history, with two proper castles, local museums and a striking modernist pier all worth a visit. Further afield within a thirty minute drive are Dover Castle, the cathedral city of Canterbury and the major shopping outlet at Ashford. If you prefer two legs or two wheels, there are plenty of country and coastal paths and trails just waiting to be explored.

Golfers, too, are spoilt for choice, with three superb British Open courses nearby – Royal St. Georges, Royal Cinque Ports and Princes. Also within reach are the attractions of Margate – Turner Contemporary, Dreamland and the extraordinary shell grotto, Dickensian Broadstairs, Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour, Whitstable and the picturesque Medieval streets of Sandwich.

Whatever takes your fancy, Pebble Beach Cottage will make your stay a memorable and relaxing one. It has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard, with a light and airy lounge, cosy dining room and kitchen downstairs, and a spacious double bedroom plus single and bathroom with separate shower upstairs. Outside a secluded courtyard garden is the ideal spot to catch the evening sunshine with a glass of something chilled, and there is side access for bilkes or pushchairs. Sky TV (including Sky Sports) and Wi-fi ensure that indoor entertainment is also taken care of, for those rare rainy days. No smoking, please, for the comfort and enjoyment of our non-smoking guests.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Too short a stay!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many positive things to say about Pebble Beach..in no particular order here are just a few:

No1 - this property has the option for a 3 night stay from mid week which suited the time we had away from work, this was quite hard to find particularly as our stay was during the half term holidays.

No2 - the photos on the website are just as we found the property - beautiful décor, cosy and homely, sometimes reality is not what you might see in some website pictures - what you see is what you get with Pebble Cottage.

No3 - The cottage location is excellent. On the 1st road back from the seafront our children couldn't believe the beach was practically their garden. Short walks into Deal town and to Walmer and Deal Castles, short drives up to Broadstairs and down to Dover Castle this cottage is perfectly suited to explore this part of Kent.

No4 - Pebble Beach has everything you need, I was fortunate not to cook on this trip but if I had needed to, the kitchen is very well equipped. It was a lovely touch to find a cake in the fridge on our arrival with tea, coffee and milk available to accompany...yum!

No5 - the house has a huge master bedroom with very comfortable bed, our 2 children in the smaller room in 2 singles were very comfortable too. The bathroom with a separate bath and large shower was spacious and very clean. The living dining areas also very spacious, were relaxing and beautifully decorated, a treat to come home to after plenty of fresh air. No traffic noise from the street outside, just the seagulls! The house has a courtyard garden with table and chairs which (if it hadn't been a chilly February holiday) we would certainly have made use of.

No6 - Communication from Mark & Sarah was excellent, we called 30 mins prior to arriving and Sarah was waiting for us with a warm welcome, she gave us a few tips on things to do and more importantly where to get the best fish & chips - just around the corner on the sea front! On our departure, Mark checked in with us via text.

We were away for a 40th birthday which I had very briefly mentioned when booking, Mark & Sarah had recalled this and we received a thoughtful gift on the day which was really lovely.

It is all about the positives for Pebble Beach. We would highly recommend it as it's one of the best rentals we have used and we would certainly hope to revisit one day.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage Mark & Sarah.

Best wishes

Jo, Martin, Harry & Anna

Comfortable and well equipped cottage

  • 4 of 5

A very stylishly appointed cottage. Warm and comfortable and very well equipped.

It would benefit, however, from a curtain between the front door and the entrance to the living room to make it even more cosy. Parking is on road and if you find "your" place taken there are usually plenty of spaces in the location. The cottage is well placed for walking along the sea front towards Deal and Walmer. Mark was a very welcoming host and helped us settle in with cake and tea.

An extremely good holiday cottage as described on-line.

Had a fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Pebble Beach. Had everything we needed. Such nice personal and thoughtful touches. Mark was there within a couple of minutes of us arriving and showed us around. It's in a perfect location that we didn't need to use the car at all. Plenty of eateries close by, so we didn't need to cook either!

We thoroughly enjoyed Deal we haven't been here for over 20 years and it's such a friendly place. Every place we chose to eat and drink in was dog friendly.

Would definitely recommend Pebble Beach.

Many thanks to Mark & Sarah for allowing us to use their lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

We needed a break away from it all and pebble beach cottage was just right for us.We walked into Deal most days and found some lovely eateries and the sea views were great.

Our dog had some good walks along the front.

Mark and Sarah made us most welcome.

Easy going but home from home,we will come again.

reccomended place to stay..
