“Cosy Cosy very cosy !!!”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a delightful cottage on a corner in the main street of Old deal. It is opposite a car park which is a Saturday Market with lots of vendors with variety of foods, flowers plus antiques etc. The cottage has three floors with main bedroom on first floor adjacent to lovely bathroom with shower as well as a seperate bath. On second floor are two bedrooms, the larger double is very light and airy with nice views. Other has two single plus a trundle. Think that a couple with more than two kids would find bedrooms a plenty but squashed for other rooms such as kitchen and lounge (which is on ground floor). The owner is very friendly and witty. House very clean and tidy. Plenty of books and DVD's to entretain, also board games. Minutes, say two or three from shops, pubs and restaurants and cafes as well as esplanade. Would definitely recommend.,

“Lovely Cottage - quiet and right in the heart of Deal”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A great location and a charming cottage. Really enjoyed our stay here. Deal Old Town is lovely and Flotsam Cottage is right in the heart of it. The sea, shops, market, restaurants are all right on your doorstep and yet the cottage is quiet. The owner is welcoming and helpful and the cottage was clean and well presented. We had a long stay here and found it a really peaceful and comfortable place to be - would definitely like to return.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed October 2, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

In the heart of the old town of Deal the cottage is close to shops, pubs, cafes and the beach. It is immaculately furnishde and decorated and has everything you need, and with two double and one single bedroom it is extremely good value.

Stayed for the fourth time. Lovely cottage, cosy and sympathetically decorated. It's a home from home. The cottage is extremely clean with comfortable beds and very light rooms. It has just had a new bathroom and shower fitted. Very tasteful. It really is a 2 min walk to the sea and to interesting, individual shops. The owners are friendly and a mine of information about the local area as they also live in the town. I am very happy to recommend it.

“high quality cottage in great location”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Flotsam cottage is equipped and decorated to a very high standard. The location is convenient and quiet, with easy access to all the amenities of quirky and charming Deal. We had a troublefree and very enjoyable stay. Our two year old loved the children's books!

“Fantastic - home from home - totally recommend”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I can only echo what everyone else has said - a top class cottage just at quiet end of high street, opposite car park. Very convenient for lovely individual shops/restaurants/seafront (all 5 mins max). Although central it is quiet, and has black out blinds in bedrooms. Our security deposit was returned straight away. There were lots of little extras that made it feel like a warm and relaxing home.

We will be back and will certainly recommend to family and friends.

Very attractive old town, lots to do in immediate area. Loved the scenic unspoilt countryside from Deal via Walmer, Kingsdown and St Margaret at Cliffe. Deal reminded us of Aldeburgh and Southwold nearer home.

Thanks for an enjoyable stay - couldn't have been better.

“Perfect Place to Stay”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Flotsam cottage for 3 nights over Easter. There were four in our party and we all fitted in the cottage comfortably. The cottage was extremely well equipped with towels and linen included. The kitchen had everything you needed, washing up liquid, tea towels, dish washer tablets. It was a real treat to have a real fire in the wood burner and the first basket was free. The beds were very comfortable.
The position of the cottage is perfect, just a few minutes from the sea, car park opposite where they have a lovely market on a Saturday. Lots of pubs and shops on your doorstep.
Deal is a real hidden gem.
