About the property

2 Bedroom Cottage

Just a stone’s throw from the sea, Goodwin Sands 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, Goodwin Sands 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, two double bedrooms and bathroom with separate shower upstairs. The bathroom is accessed through the 2nd bedroom. Outside the 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.Please note stairs relatively steep so not suitable for very elderly or guests with mobility issues.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were really pleased with this house, prefect size for us and a double bed each!

Everything was really clean and practical.

Also a delicious cream sponge waiting for us in the fridge!

The owner met us with the keys and showed us round, he was very friendly and approachable.

Deal is a lovely place to stay and in easy reach of the delightful Kent countryside.

Well worth a visit!

Well equiped, tasteful modern decor close to all Deal and Walmer has to offer!

  • 4 of 5

A great week in this well-equiped home from home. Close to the beach, shops, pubs and restaurants of Walmer. A little longer walk to Deal but a great stroll along the promenade.

Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful break at Goodwin Sands. The cottage is very cosy and warm, ideal place for a rest. A plus side of this property is an upstairs bath room and also a outside toilet.The kitchen is very well

equiped, with a decent size fridge and freezer. This is the 1st time we have stayed at Goodwin but plan to return in September.

Sarah and Mark gave us a warm welcome and they go the extra mile to make sure guest have everything they need.
