Rental Home
Chance Cottage is our lovely home where we are happy to welcome guests on a continental Bed & Breakfast basis. We are situated in a small village two miles from the Port of Dover, with a lovely English country pub next door, The Chance Inn, serving good food and real ales to weary travellers. Originating from the 1740's, the house boasts low beams, an inglenook fireplace and steep staircases that may not suit some people, although comprising only nine steps. The Tulip room is very pretty, with a double bed, views over the garden, ample storage and a stylish, private shower room. We have a spacious refectory style dining room, exclusively for guests. Beams, windows facing over farmland, an inglenook fireplace with log burner, and equipped with a small fridge, tea and coffee making facil...Chance Cottage is our lovely home where we are happy to welcome guests on a continental Bed & Breakfast basis.

Beams, windows facing over farmland, an inglenook fireplace with log burner, and equipped with a small fridge, tea and coffee making facilities. Continental style breakfast is served here between 7.30-9.30 am. On warm days guests may be served outside in the courtyard. The garden is a work in progress but well on the way to becoming a quintessential English cottage garden, which we are happy to show guests around. Chance Cottage sits on a quiet country lane providing ample parking; when the pub next door is busy, this can be a short distance from the front door, but parking is always available. Other things to note We have two, much loved and cossetted, elderly (18 yrs) long haired cats whom we exclude from letting areas but they are inquisitive. Please do not stay with us if you have a cat allergy. If you do have any mobility issues, you might want to speak to us in advance to check that the accommodation is suitable for your needs.

About the neighborhood
Situated in a rural hamlet, Chance Cottage is gifted with a lovely country pub, right next door; The Chance Inn! The pub serves excellent pub meals and a selection of ales and other beers, wines and spirits, with an excellent offering of craft distilled gins. This is great for guests after a long drive, who don't wish to travel to eat. Nearby, but not walkable, is an excellent, authentic Indian restaurant, Namaste. Further afield is the lovely seaside town of Deal, together with the Cathedral City of Canterbury, both of which have numerous restaurants, bars and shops of high quality. Both Dover and Walmer Castles are nearby, together with the White Cliffs, ferry port and Eurotunnel.
Getting around
A car is the preferable means of transport in order to visit the many places of interest in this lovely corner of Kent. However, Dover Priory Station is two miles away, with high speed trains from London St Pancras International. We have a local country bus service running two hourly between Dover and Deal, but mornings only. We can advise on local taxi firms and car hire
