"Quaint little cottage"
We recently spent a lovely week at Shrimp Cottage. We were welcomed by Tony and Melanie who were very friendly and gave us lots of suggestions of places to visit. We had a very interesting trip on the RH&D railway all the way to Dungeness, did the walk along the White Cliffs to South Foreland Lighthouse, visited the Hornby Visitors Centre, and Walmer Castle, just to name a few. We also took their advice and had fish and chips at the Middle Street Fish and Chip Restaurant - best we've ever tasted! The cottage was very clean and comfortable and the ideal size for the two of us - and the location spot on for everything. Parking was no problem. We would not hesitate about staying at Shrimp Cottage again. Gill and Dave
DEAR JILL AND DAVE, WE ARE SO GLAD YOU TOOK OUR ADVICE ABOUT WHERE TO GO AND WHAT TO SEE, ALSO YOU HAD A GOOD TIME IN OUR PART OF KENT AND AT SHRIMP COTTAGE. IT WAS VERY NICE MEETING AND TALKING WITH YOU.
HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN SOON. VERY KIND REGARDS TONY AND MELANIE

"Lovely quiet/tranquil location in prime position"
A good sized cottage for one or two, self catering. I particularly liked the quietness of the area and perfect space under the stairs for the dog cage.
Anyone staying longer than a week may find the cottage a little basic without a washing machine or iron/board.
The cottage is in a perfect location to access both the sea, country and eateries and has several leaflets of interest to help you plan your stay.
THANK YOU EMMA FOR YOUR VERY KIND LETTER YOU LEFT AT SHRIMP COTTAGE, IT IS VERY HEART WARMING WHEN A CUSTOMER HAS ENJOYED THEMSELVES AS MUCH AS YOU AND YOUR LOVERLY LITTLE DOG MYRTLE HAVE. COME BACK SOON EMMA & MYRTLE

"A charming cottage in a charming town"
YA compact and bijou cottage which is ideally situated for the beach, the shops and many eateries in the town of Deal.
We were met on arrival by the lovely friendly owners who had made sure the cottage was clean and equipped with everything needed for a week's holiday.
Shrimp Cottage is a great base for visiting the nearby towns of Dover, Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Margate, Sandwich and Canterbury.
Although the cottage has no dedicated parking space we had no trouble finding free parking in the surrounding streets.
We hope to return as soon as possible.
Thanks for your kind review,- and we hope to see you soon.

"A Real Gem"
The cottage has a well laid out and pleasant interior, is impeccably kept, and has a standard of equipment far better than that found during our other experiences of holiday lettings. The owners were there to meet us and explain everything (which doesn't happen everywhere) and got us off to a good start.
Parking was no problem and free when away from the sea-front and shopping area. Deal was a pleasant surprise - a real old-fashioned seaside town, with no obvious litter or behavioural problems.
No quibbles at all. Altogether a thoroughly pleasant experience.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND COMMENTS. IT IS VERY COMFORTING TO US THE OWNERS TO READ SUCH GLOWING REVIEWS FOR SHRIMP COTTAGE. WE DO TRY TO MAKE OUR GUESTS AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE AND TO GIVE ADVICE ON SAY, THE BEST PLACES TO EAT OR WHAT TO SEE OR WHERE TO SHOP ETC, WE THINK IT ALL ADS TO A MORE PLEASANT HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE AND DEAL IS JUST GETTING BETTER AND BETTER WITH MORE UPMARKET SHOPS, INNS, AND DINING.
