A former fisherman’s cottage, Lifeboat Cottage dates back to the 1800s but has recently been tastefully renovated to provide a holiday home that blends contemporary style and modern amenities with traditional seaside charm. Just a stone’s throw from the sea, Pebble Beach 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.

Just a stone’s throw from the sea, Pebble Beach 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, Pebble Beach 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, and a spacious double bedroom plus single and bathroom with separate shower upstairs. Outside a secluded courtyard 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. The cottage welcomes dogs (as do the many canine friendly pubs and cafés in Deal) but no smoking, please, for the comfort and enjoyment of our non-smoking guests. We look forward to seeing you soon.More
