They loved the Marmite :)

What a lovely place to stay. Dragon Cottage was perfect for our winter break in Deal.

So well located near the seafront, shops and restaurants.

The cottage itself is lovely. Well equipped and cosy. Loved the kitchen and enjoyed some happy mealtimes at the table with a glass or two of wine.

The living room has a real fire which we enjoyed lighting once or twice as in February with it being a tad cold, we couldn’t resist it, wonderful!

Upstairs the bedroom was again well equipped and what a cosy bed!

It was hard to get up in the mornings but the delights of Deal just about won out.

So many lovely touches such as a welcome hamper with biscuits, tea, coffee jams, marmalade and my favourite MARMITE. Towel bathrobes, shower gel and shampoos. Ice cubes already prepared in the large fridge freezer.

A bit cold for us to stay out in but we imagine the little courtyard garden with table and chairs will be great in the summer season.

We visited the busy high street, bought some lovely food from the deli and the Saturday market. The walk into Walmer was good as we had sunshine every day of our stay.

We had a great curry at Dine India and really like The Bohemian pub.

The cafe at the end of the pier sells the most amazing scotch eggs.

We have had a wonderful time in Dragon Cottage, we will return…it’s a done DEAL!

A lovely welcome … like every year

said one of our recent guests. Their family have visited the cottage every year for a while now, with the lovely dog and enjoy seeing familiar sights as well as finding out about new places – they are never bored as there is always something different to do in Deal – new shops opening up or a different restaurant to visit – or the new Museum of the Moving Image in Stanhope Road or another art exhibition at the Linden Gallery…..

‘The children love it….

but not as much as we do.’… said a returning guest.

We love Deal with the variety of local shops and pubs and places to eat. Every taste is catered for within very easy walking distance. We can grab a quick coffee or linger over some fine dining, with no hassle of having to drive or get a cab to and fro.

The local shops are a delight, with the mix of High Street staples and the convenience of known brands and wide ranges alongside some fabulously quirky ‘one off’ enterprises.

We adore the summer evening suppers in the garden and always find plenty to do..!
