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 and private hot tub. 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.

    Confirmed guest ‐ 24 May 2019
    "Great holiday at the Cottage a beautiful property near Dover."
    Teresa ‐ 23 Apr 2019
    "We had a wonderful stay in The Cottage. A beautiful house with stunning sea views from so many rooms. It was great having lots of different places to sit for a large party - including the downstairs games room for the kids! Our only caveat is that the dishwasher is on the small side. We absolutely loved it - we'll be back."
    Janice ‐ 2 Feb 2019
    "The house itself was a bit tired and the sofas not the most comfortable also dvd player played up which was a let down.Could do with another kettle and some more mugs and glasses.On a more positive note cannot fault the location the bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable everyone stated they slept like logs. We are a group of ladies mostly retired who go away each year for a weekend unfortunately the steps will be too much for some of us again so will not be returning."
    Bridget ‐ 6 Nov 2018
    "We enjoyed our weekend here enormously. We loved the house, its atmosphere, its comfort, the setting, the quality of the light and the marvellous views over the Channel.The only thing which stopped us short of a 10 on all scores was the rather sorry state of the outside paintwork- not that this marred our enjoyment...Thank you for a very pleasant stay."

    "The situation is lovely. Beautiful views over to France. Lots of room for 3 or 4 families. Furniture is eclectic which we like. as nothing is new we didn't feel as edgy when our 3 year old was playing with his toys near things. Although a little dusty (cushions etc) the property was clean. Shops and pubs are probably a little out of walking distance for the elderly and unfit. The owner was very helpful when calling about the keys etc. I would highly recommend this place to anybody."
