Deal is a fashionable seaside town having just been voted No. 1 in Coast magazine's poll as "Top spot to lay your beach towel". Deal has also been praised for the low number of amusement arcades (although the one we do have is well worth saving a few pennies for), and genuine Georgian properties in charming winding streets.

Set on three floors the Old Admiral Penn makes an excellent and very comfortable base for your holiday - everything is literally on your doorstep - you won't need a car unless you want to venture further along the coast.

Please note the stairs are steep so care must be taken with toddlers and the infirm

The seafront and beach are a second away and the shops, museums, pubs, cafés and restaurants are all close by - in fact the best restaurant in town is right across the road.

Deal offers plenty to do and see all year round – days on the beach, walks along the white cliffs, cycling or golf, and visiting Deal's picturesque town centre with its charming vintage and antique shops and the many nearby historic sites, museums and galleries.

If you wish to travel a little further afield, then the medieval Cathedral town of Canterbury, the sandy beaches of Dicken's Broadstairs and Northern France, are just a short drive through the tunnel. From the lounge and upper floor bedroom it is even possible to see the coastline of France on a clear day.

"Fantastic and spacious home from home in a great location"

We stayed in Deal with our young children for a weekend. The house was fantastic - very spacious with lots of room across 3 floors. All was well thought out for sleeping, cooking and living.
The beach was opposite the house and we were lucky with sunny weather all weekend.
We took the owners recommendation and had the best fish and chips on our arrival on Friday night and a relaxing Sunday roast next door before we left.
We are long overdue a visit back.
I would highly recommend Deal and this lovely home from home. Do not hesitate, book up soon!
