In the heart of this pretty seaside village is this delightful cottage sitting on a high bank opposite a large beech tree.  The cottage is reached by a flight of stone steps and is on the end of the terrace.  It is beautifully furnished and decorated and has a very pretty garden with views across the village rooftops.  The unspoilt shingle beach of Kingsdown, with its wild flower meadow and white cliffs, is just five minutes walk with the lovely public house the Zetland Arms that actually sits on the beach. An excellent butcher's shop The Ox Tale with delicatessen and wines is just around the corner where you can place an order for your holiday. There is a cycle path that leads all the way along the beachfront to Walmer and Deal where you will find two castles to explore, plenty of cafes, restaurants, independent shops and Deal pier to take a leisurely stroll at sunset. Kingsdown also has an excellent golf course on top of the cliffs and is a short distance from two championship golf courses. The area is very popular for walkers, with the England coastal path and many country paths to choose from.   Shop: 200 yards      Pub:  200 yards         Beach:  400 yards

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location - we had a fantastic holiday in this warm and charming cottage with its beautiful garden and comfortable interior.Mr Trent Cogram - 17th September 2018
The cottage was a real surpise, so tranquil and nice. It felt like home right away , the garden is a great bonus to sit and relax and with the sea and villages like Deal close by makes it the perfect spot for a great holiday. There wasn't anything we find negative or disappointing. It is a cottage we would rent again in the near future. Mrs j van asperen - 9th July 2018
Beautifully appointed cottage with very thoughtful attention to detail for guests. Convenient location for exploring this corner of Kent with lots of choices for walking, activities and eating out. The local butcher and deli was amazing.Miss Alison Pope - 4th June 2018

Thank you for the use of your lovely cottage. We had a good week at everything: weather, walking and seeing Kent.Rita, Bob and Natasha - 25th August 2017
We stayed here for one week with a lot of wind, sunshine, rain and very good vegetables from the area, some bees, some crickets and very good lamb meat from the butcher around the corner. We loved the place, you thought of everything. It was a relaxing week for us and we would like to come back!Louise and Alexander - 18th August 2017
What a lovely cottage - and everything works! And there are sharp knives and even a cocktail set! We strolled on the beach and soaked in the atmosphere in the Zealand. It was also a treat just to sit in the garden - we even used some of the herbs in our cooking!Sarah , Richard & Sam - 18th August 2017
Cottage lovely, very comfortableRuth & David - 4th August 2017
