Nestled between Dover and Ramsgate on the Kent coastline, Deal is often overlooked – but it’s the getaway destination of choice for those in the know. There’s a buzz about the place, with a smattering of intimate wine bars, indie galleries and casual-contemporary restaurants to keep you occupied when you’re not sunning yourself on the beach. Despite its emerging artsy identity, Deal hasn’t lost its seaside charm. You’ll find amusement arcades, fish and chip shops and a Saturday market that has existed since 1699. And your pretty home is less than a ten-minute walk from it all. Inside, it’s bright and comforting, with muted tones and a curated selection of modern and shabby chic furnishings. Out the back, there’s a quiet courtyard with seating area for drinks at sundown and a fire pit to keep you toasty. On wet and windy days, leaf through the kitchen’s recipe books and cook up a warming supper. Retreat to the cosy lounge afterwards, with a warm mug of tea and a slice of the county’s own Canterbury Tart.
