August 09. What a charming and comfortable house! We enjoyed a very relaxing week’s holiday with our young daughters on the beach and visiting many of the local shops and sights. Patrick Devatour & family

October 09. Deal is ideal for a convenient short break by train from London and Blue Skies is a comfortable base from which to enjoy all the charms of this friendly seaside town. We will be back again soon. Cindy Davies & family

Christmas 2009. We loved Deal and Blue Skies, a spacious and comfortable home, where we welcomed our family over Christmas. We hope to be back again very soon.

Charming, Cosy and in Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Deal earlier in the year on a fishing trip I treated my husband to, I thought it would a great place for my Mum who loves antiques but is getting on and so needs everything close. I booked this house as it was more suitable to bring my mum for the stairs. It was lovely. We were greeted by the the key holder and told about all the best places to go and the facilities. The house is modern and really clean but with all the charm you would expect from a grade 2 listed building. We could not fault it. Parking was free at the end of the street at the sea front which is only a few 100 yards away. Great for the fishing and beach combing.

Everyone we met was really friendly and walking for my mum was great because it is so flat and only a few hundred yards from the town. There are plenty of good places to eat.

I can thoroughly recommend it we will definitely be going again.

Location

From the Owner

We bought Blue Skies as we loved its location on the charming Kent coastline and loved being able to pop over to France for Day Trips!

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Deal has a pebble beach literally one minute's walk from the house. Deal also boasts a fine pier (used by keen fishermen) with a pleasant café serving breakfast, snacks and light meals all day. Further along the coast, just a short drive away are the sandy beaches of Broadstairs and Pegwell Bay.

Travel:

Deal is located on the Kent coast, just 8 miles from the Dover Ferry Terminal (perfect of a quick day trip to France). It is a two hour drive from London and can be reached via Dover (M2) or via Folkestone (M20), continuing along the A258 coastal road to Deal. Frequent trains depart from London St Pancras or Waterloo East stations, and the journey takes between 2- 2.5 hours. Gatwick Airport is a 2 hour drive.

Distances:

Blue Skies is located in the town centre, just a minute’s walk from the beach & 10 minute’s walk from Deal Station. There is a good selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants, all within walking distances of the house. This is an area steeped in history; with three historic Cinque Port castles in Dover, Deal & Walmer, the White Cliffs of Dover (8 miles), the charming old historic port of Sandwich (5 miles), the medieval Catherdral at Canterbury (15 miles) and Dicken's Broadstairs(18 miles).

Further Details:

Deal is a lively,friendly and sociable place, most certainly due to the abundance of its interesting pubs and restaurants! It's a great place to come to spend time with friends, to enjoy good food and bracing walks in the fresh sea air. There is a good choice of restaurants and cafes, some specialising in seafood, of course! The Astor Theatre has recently re-opened and offers varied theatrical and musical shows

For children, there is the pier, amusement arcades, ice-cream parlour, the beach and the sea, as well a kiddies paddling pool (summer only) a pitch and putt course, Tides swimming pool with wave machines, a Maritime museum and the Time Ball Museum. The Conservation area is virtually car free and the terrain is completely flat, which is ideal too for anyone with young children or walking difficulties.

There are many specialist food shops, including an excellent fishmonger, a well-stocked organic shop, a health food shop, an authentic Italian bread shop and cafe plus many colourful boutiques selling, clothes, accessories, bric a brac and antiques. There is even an M&S and Sainsburys for those who can't live without them! Deal also has a weekly Saturday market and a Farmer's Market on Wednesdays.

There are also many varied activities available locally for everyone in the family to enjoy - such as walking, cycling, sea-fishing, first-class golf on Deal and Sandwich courses, as well as day trips by ferry or by Eurotunnel to France to stock up on your wine and food.

Deal is an attractive small town, full of character and is an ideal choice for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday at any time of year.
