A very comfortable well equipped cottage. Very convenient for shops and beach. We liked all the art work in the cottage.

Stayed here for a month, alone and with two friends. Deal is a quiet and charming town with a bit of seaside fun attached and there are more than enough neighbouring attractions. Also London is around 90 minutes away from Flotsam cottage's front door. The cottage is an excellent place to stay. V. near beach. V. near high street shops....

Management response:

Hello Martin Good to hear that you arrived back in Japan in one piece. Hope your wife is now better and maybe we will meet her next time. I'm sure you're young enough for many more visits to the UK and maybe even Deal. Glad you liked Deal; it is certainly growing in popularity but we hope it still stays...

Management response:

Hello Mark & Janet It was good to see you again and even better to hear that you are still enjoying the delights of Deal and the Kent coast. We hope that there was enough to keep Richard and little Sam interested and maybe next year you might even return with your new grandson? Best wishes - Alan & Kate
