Spacious family home, views over the English Channel from balcony, coastal path leading to White Cliffs of Dover nearby.

Commanding stunning views across the English Channel, this attractive, spacious, family home for all seasons is the ideal property for a relaxing holiday with both friends or relatives. A decked terrace runs the length of the property, an ideal spot for soaking up the sun or relax after a brisk winter walk in front of a glowing log burner in the cosy living room, overlooking the frothing waves. Four of the six bedrooms have sea views and the other two have attractive garden views. There is also a games room. The white chalk cliff above St Margaret’s Bay is said to be the first place the sun reaches each morning on mainland Britain! The beach is famous for being the closest point to France and is the spot where Channel swimmers begin their marathon 21 mile swim. The village itself offers good pubs, restaurants and local shop within walking distance. The coastal path leads to the famous White Cliffs of Dover, gateway to England and now one of the UK’s protected Heritage coasts offering some of the best cliff coastal walking in the country. The lighthouse is the place where Marconi transmitted his first radio broadcast to France. Closer to France than London, bring a passport, catch a ferry from Dover and visit the French markets in Calais and Boulogne for the day. Visit Dover, Deal and Walmer Castle, Pines Garden and Metropole Galleries Folkestone. Canterbury 17 miles. Golf, sailing, cycling, horse riding locally. Shops and pubs 500 yards.

    We had an amazing time at The Cottage. The grandparents and dogs had the ground floor bedroom, teenagers in the attic and everyone else in between! It was nearly perfect for our extended family holiday. We had 3 under 5's who adored the games room (though we did hold our breath everytime they went up or down the stairs!). The views were amazing and we all loved sitting and listening to the sound of the waves. Yes, in some areas the decoration was a little tired - but with 5 children and 2 dogs this wasn't a problem for us, it just made us feel comfortable in using everything. The beds were comfortable and there was everything we needed and more provided. The only slight negatives are: The twin beds are now downstairs with a double in the attic - not as described and not what we had planned for. The garden is not dog safe. We moved some furniture around to make the terrace safe but had to stay close when they were in the garden or they would escape! Lack of teaspoons! Everything else was there - glasses, electric whisks blender etc but we would have liked another dozen teaspoons!!! All in all we had a great time and the house was really lovely - we could loose hours watching the view!

    An excellently decorated, perfectly clean house that you will not want to leave. It is so cosy, yet spacious, ensuring comfort at all times. The comfy chairs in the living room facing the sea are a particularly wonderful attention and adds an extra touch of luxury to the house. The kitchen has a dining table, as well as a breakfast bar, making for many opportunities to snack, chat and laugh with your group. Each bedroom is wonderfully decorated and spacious and the bathrooms are equally perfect. In the basement, there is a den for the children with bean bags, 2 football tables, VCR with videoes, as well as many toys and board games to enjoy. This makes it superb for groups of friends ready to party and families alike.

    We had a lovely stay at the cottage. It has a cosy feel and a good flow to the house even though it is a large property. The views it what sets it apart and the wonderful large comfortable bedrooms. The games room was fabulous for the children best suited to young, they were playing down there all weekend! The only thing that lets it down was a lack of a few mod cons in the kitchen, the lounge sofas could do with up dating and the garden is in dia need of some TLC.

    “The Cottage” is a magnificent house in an ideal location on the White Cliffs with superb views of the Channel, which we had also rented in 2016. Its spacious rooms accommodated our 11 strong family group very comfortably and we had an excellent holiday, helped by glorious sunny weather almost the whole week. But we were disappointed by the outdoor space, which could be a very attractive feature. There were no chairs for sitting outside and, even if there had been, it would not have been a pleasant experience, as the garden had been left to run wild and had deteriorated even from last year. There are spacious sunny verandas with lovely views of the sea, but we were unable to make use of them as there were no comfortable outdoor chairs and no umbrellas to provide shade. The interior of the house was a bit shabby in some places and there were a number of annoying minor irritations, including no bulb in a bedside light; a shower with a partially blocked outlet, which leaked through the kitchen ceiling on one occasion; unlabelled keys; and no washing line. Despite these drawbacks we would probably go again because of the size and location of the house, but if they could be rectified it would provide an even better experience.
