Lovely, modern holiday apartment just by the sea, in the historic village of St Margarets Bay, Kent.


Just a 5-minute downhill walk from the beach, located at the foot of the white chalk cliffs of St Margaret's Bay, is Headland.

Situated on the southeast coast of England between Dover and Deal, the holiday apartment adjoins our own holiday home. It is ideal for walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and families. Opposite is The Pines, a stunning 6-acre garden offering the perfect blend of sustainability and innovation with a sensory garden and lake, ideal for picnics.

Visit the South Foreland Lighthouse, Dover Walmer and Deal Castles, or bring your passport and take a day trip to France.

The apartment sleeps up to a maximum of 4 guests. We do not recommend it for 4 adults but will accept a booking from 4 adults if that's what you want to do. We believe that guests will find the following accommodation combinations comfortable: 2 or 3 adults; 2 adults with up to 2 pre-teen children or one grown-up child. If you are unsure, please contact us for advice.

"Very Disappointing"

We had chosen Headland Cottage, as it was described as a coastal property with small private garden and terrace….The reviews were excellent, but how disappointed we have been… It is not a cottage … More

Dear Ian,
we are sorry that you found the apartment not to your liking. We take great pride in managing Headland to provide guests with a pleasant and comfortable accommodation, and equip them with facilities in the apartment and with local knowledge so that they can make the best of their stay, both indoors and out. This is evident in the Grade 4 (out of 5) rating that was assigned to Headland by Cottages4you, as well as other reviews we have received (on average 4.5 out of 5 on holidaylettings and 9 out of 10 on cottages4you).

The apartment meets the British Tourist Board guidelines for 4-star properties. This means that it meets all the requirements with regard to space, bedroom sizes, clothes storage (including hanging space) and everything else.

We clearly advertise that it is an apartment adjacent to owners' holiday home, so that as not to create expectations that it's a standalone cottage. We do not advertise Headland as having sea view, because it does not.

I am not sure what you expected as a welcome pack, but two folders are provided in a drawer of the TV stand - one with manuals and house information, and another packed full with suggestions on what to do and local attractions.

We wanted to provide the rental apartment with a larger, more private part of the garden but it is unfortunately not possible under the current applicable HSE regulations. We need to install railing and further HSE measures to make it available for the rental apartment and were unable to do so as yet.

You have rightly pointed out that the grass and hedges are not cut regularly. We like it that way, it reminds us of the countryside of our childhood and we deliberately cut the grass every few weeks to give the grounds that tiny bit of a summer meadow feel. It is also worth pointing out that none of the grass is within the area of the holiday let.

The private road on which Headland is situated is not busy at all and only several walkers pass by every hour, barely any cars drive up. We do offer guests the option of parking on the territory of our main home as a goodwill gesture, which you were able to use throughout your stay.

Both bedroom windows are equipped with solid wood blinds which block out a lot of the light.

The property underwent a complete refurbishment early last year before coming to the holiday let market. The apartment is professionally cleaned every week and we do not expect our guests to do any cleaning. However we have taken your comment onboard and have since purchased a hoover for the apartment.
