Description

A lovely Grade II listed terraced fisherman's cottage quietly tucked away in the heart of the conservation area built during the 1790s in the historic Kent town of Deal. Just a stone's throw from the beach, this cottage has been thoughtfully and lovingly renovated and is perfect for families and friends looking to enjoy a traditional seaside holiday and to explore the coastline and castles that this part of Kent is famous for. This cottage is full of character and retains many original features including deep sash windows, extensive wood panelling, original bedroom doors and an inglenook fireplace. The modern, fitted kitchen is well-equipped for you to prepare delicious meals that can be enjoyed in the adjoining conservatory, giving an alfresco feel to all meals. Two sitting rooms give plenty of space and an escape for those who just fancy a quiet evening in with a good book. Spiral stairs lead up to three attractive bedrooms spread over the two upper floors along with a family bathroom on the first level. Enjoy a meal in the courtyard garden, a superb sun trap, and settle down for a taste of the sea. Fresh fish is sold daily along the harbour as the fishing boats bring in their catch, and with the beach just a couple of minutes walk away, you are perfectly located to enjoy all of the delights of the town. The shops, tea rooms and inns are all on the doorstep along with a weekly market and of course, the remains of the stunning Deal Castle which gives a fascinating insight into the history of the area. Whether it is a quiet beach holiday that you are after or a touring base to discover this magical part of Kent, this cottage is an ideal holiday choice all year round.
The Georgian coastal town of Deal offers two castles, two small museums and two weekly markets, as well as a shops, pubs and restaurants. There are two golf courses, the Royal Cinque Ports and Kingsdown within an easy distance, plus Dover and Canterbury are within driving distance.

‘Samphire House is the perfect venue for a small group. The house has the typical British charm and warmth that you often see on TV, small but cozy. From here you can easily explore Deal on foot and Cath's tips are well worth it. We have been coming to Deal for years and are still regularly surprised by new discoveries.’

‘Samphire House is in a beautiful location, just a few minutes walk from the pebbly beach in Deal. The house itself is over four floors, in the cellar is a lounge with two sofa beds. We made one up for our son to sleep on, but had to move him as the smell of damp was over powering. This room needs freshening up as the smell is quite bad. The middle floor (lower ground) was clean and quaint, with comfortable furniture in the lounge. The kitchen area was acceptable, with an oven, microwave and dishwasher. There was a narrow breakfast bar that could seat two people. The conservatory leads off from the kitchen. It had a table that seats four people. This led out to a small courtyard garden. Upstairs was a lovely master bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bed. Then there was the main bathroom with a toilet and a separate toilet next to it. On the top level, (with very steep stairs) were two further bedrooms. One with twin beds and one with a double bed. The house has lots of lovely original features, but could do with modernisation. The location was beautiful, but the smell from the damp cellar permeated throughout the house, which ruined our stay. I would not book this place again.’

‘Firstly, if you are looking for a minimalist house without personal items then this is not for you. If however, you want somewhere quirky, with steep stairs but lots of character that's in a really really great location and that has a little outside space for sitting and chatting and a separate second lower lounge snug (perfect for the football watchers amongst our group) and only a two minute walk from the beach or town, then this is for you. The cottage was well equipped, okay it's a little dated and maybe not to my taste but it may be to yours, and it was certainly clean enough (I'm not on Four in a Bed so I didn't lift the mattresses or inspect the bathroom with a microscope!) and the location was spot on being in the conservation area, and we got parked for free just up the road after unloading at the door. There were 5 of us and it's certainly big enough, but do be careful as if you aren't that mobile as the stairs are quite a challenge. Overall I would recommend if you want a comfortable weekend in Deal.’

‘On the positive side, the location is super, but the house itself needs some serious refurbishment. Filthy taps and radiators, a broken shower fitting, rope on the stairs keeps popping out. We saw rodent droppings in cupboards (understandable in old houses but ought to be cleaned!). To make matters worse, there was broken glass all over the floor when we arrived and when I phoned the owner, she said: The housekeeper is on holiday, you'll have to clean up yourselves. Heating is controlled from her phone and the house can be cold downstairs, but you can bypass if you change the settings. All in all, only if you book last minute.’

‘A beautiful house in the heart of the historic and best part of Deal. Lots of character, period features but all the facilities you could wish for. Its a large house with lots of rooms to explore which my young son loved, particularly the den! We stay in deal every year and this is the best place we've found, we all loved it. Cath our host was lovely too, brilliant friendly comms. It made for a wonderful long weekend, thanks so much!:)’

‘Hello Cath, Thank for your contribution to what was an excellent holiday. We've been visiting Deal annually for over 12 years now and Samphire is easily one of the best holiday cottages we've ever stayed in; local to the seafront and high street and exceptionally well equipped - In addition to that there are the quaint and very comfortable aspects of the cottage itself. It is a real home from home. The only downside - which we couldn't have predicted - was that when we made the booking, I did not realise/know that I would be bedding in a new replacement knee! So the spiral staircases were a 'challenge', especially on the way down (!) Samphire is top of our list for our visit to Deal next year. Cheers and thanks once again. Jane, Stewart and Fiona’

‘Samphire House is set over four floors with wonderful rooms full of all the things you need for a perfect stay plus more! I would stay again in a heart beat, very close to the beach, town and local attractions. Deal is a beautiful seaside town, very well kept and welcoming. My family and I decided to go on the Wednesday and by the Thursday we were there! The owner, Cath, made the whole experience very easy. Many thanks, we'll be back!’

‘A perfect holiday location in a beautiful homely house. Samphire Cottage is only 150 yards from the sea in one direction & around the same distance from the high street in the other. Deal market, restaurants and coffee shops are all less than a 5 minute walk. We are planning on visiting Deal again & we would love to stay in Samphire Cottage again.’

‘We came to Deal for a family gathering and all had a great time. Everything in Deal was in walking distance and there was something to do for everybody. The village has a lot of character, we especially enjoyed the beach, the market, the shopping and the pubs. Food was good everywhere we went but we also cooked a lot at home. The house was perfect for us, no need to bring anything from home. Internet was fast, kitchen well equipped, lots of space for everybody, comfortable beds, nice outside sitting area! Hopefully we will be able to come back!’
