House in Deal, Kent, England - Peaceful Location, 2 Minutes Walk To Beach, Close To Town, Restaurants And Shops
Old Malmsey is a Grade 2 listed house in the centre of the Conservation area of Deal. Just a 2 minute walk from the beach yet in a convenient location for the town centre.
It has a homely and comfortable living room with an open fire and two sofas with HD television. This leads to a kitchen/dining room which in turn leads to a sunroom and out into the walled garden which is a sun trap. Here there is a side entrance to the garden and a BBQ and seating area.
The stairs to the first floor lead from the living room but typical to this period of house, are fairly steep. On the first floor is a bedroom with a king size bed. There is room for a cot bed in here if needed. From the landing are steps down to the bathroom, and also steps up to the second floor. Here there is a bedroom with two single sleigh beds and also a single bedroom. The bathroom has a large shower area.
This house is well equipped and comfortable and DVDs and board games are available for rainy days as is free wi fi. House is centrally heated.
Travel cot and highchair can be provided, but you must bring your own bed linen for the cot.
There is a strict No Smoking policy in the house. There is parking up by the seafront (about a 1 minute walk away) and this is pay and display, as is the car park to the rear of the property (this is not available on Saturdays as it is Market day). There is free parking to the north of Deal, about a 5 minute walk away. Loading and unloading is permitted outside the house, but no parking as it is a conservation area.
There is a cellar in the house which is a short staircase between the living room and kitchen. There is a freezer and another fridge down here. Also a great place for storing luggage etc.
All bed linen, tea towels etc are provided and towels for personal use. Price includes cleaning but additional cleaning can be provided at your own cost.
As per many properties in the Conservation Area, the stairs are a little steep so could be a issue if you have mobility issues.
Check-in time is 15.00 on day of arrival and departure time is 10.00 although I will try to be as flexible as possible.

Great location for exploring locally and further afield. Very comfortable and beautifully presented.
Just back from a wonderful week
By Fiona on 17-Apr-2017
Just back from a wonderful week here and we will definitely be back again!! The house is just gorgeous and Moira is an excellent host. Communication with Moira from my initial enquiry and throughout our stay was fast and friendly and she was very quick to respond to any questions we had. The location of the house couldn't be better. 30 second walk in one direction to the beach and 30 seconds the other way to the high street with all of its pretty and quirky independent shops. The property is extremely well equipped and everything is of the best quality with beautiful furnishings throughout and the beds and the linen on every bed are just dreamy top end boutique hotel standard. I can't rate this place highly enough and hope to be back next year.
Wonderful house in a lovely conservation area
By Richard on 30-Dec-2016
The house exceeded expectations. It was spacious, tastefully decorated, well equipped and spotlessly clean. As it was Christmas the owners had decorated the house which was much appreciated (as was the welcome hamper!). One of the best things about this house is the fact it has a proper open fire which was enjoyed by all. I would definitely recommend this .
Lovely Cosy cottage with afternoon sun trap in the conservatory
By Gaynor on 02-Nov-2016
Well equit quirky cottage with great location for sea front and town centre. Good coffee shop and independent shops just around the corner.
We had a wonderful experience
By Chris on 18-Oct-2016
We had a wonderful experience at Moira's place in Deal.
The house is beautiful and characterful with lots of space and buckets of charm. Extremely convenient for the beach and town centre, a wonderful restaurant where we spent our anniversary only a few minutes walk away.
Communication with Moira was excellent, we were kept informed about everything and picking up the key was a breeze.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend a stay here.
Beautiful property far surpassing expectations

We stayed at Old Malmsey as a family of 4 ranging from 26 to 74(ish) and having rented a similar property previously, were extremely pleased with the level of the accommodation. The house is extremely comfortable and is beautifully decorated; my mother was set to move in for good and my grandmother compiled a photo album full of design ideas to take back home (honestly, there's no exaggeration in that).
The house is in a fantastic location two minutes walk, if that, away from both the seafront, the high street and perhaps most importantly, the best fish and chip shop in the town. The street itself is full of history and there's a great book in the kitchen that tells you all about the town's fascinating history so keep an eye out for that. The house also comes equip with cable TV and plenty of DVDs and games to keep all ages entertained. Communication with Moira was fantastic; on the morning we set out we were warned to avoid certain roads due to excessive traffic even in spite of the fact that she was out of the country! Needless to say we were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay.
Thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality, Moira.
Beautifully appointed. Perfectly Charming

Our family of 5 stayed nearly 3 weeks in this lovely home, which truly became a home away from home. The conservatory and garden are wonderful with the church spires in view. The family-style kitchen is large and well-equipped to prepare fresh and delicious local finds, and the well-stocked games and movie cupboards are a hit with the entire family. The picture-perfect street is the ideal location with the town's High Street one street behind and the sea one street before, and it is quite easy to walk to pretty much everything one needs. The bedrooms and bath are luxurious, and it is quite evident the owner has placed much care in considering all the senses throughout the property. Perhaps the property's best "amenity" of all is its personable and gracious hostess. She is the excellent! I cannot thank you enough, Moira, for exceeding our expectations and helping with our stay in England.
Gorgeous house in great location
By on 06-Jan-2016
The house is full of character, very tastefully decorated and furnished, and very cosy, welcoming and well-maintained. It is very well-equipped throughout, particularly the kitchen, and exceeds expectations gained from the website. Especially cosy is the working open fireplace in the living room. Middle Street is very attractive and full of a sense of history. It's also just round the corner from the seafront, so the location is fabulous. Our family of four (two adults and two children) really enjoyed our stay in Deal, and felt very at home in the property. We recommend Deal Castle, Dover Castle, and the pool at Tides Leisure Centre is fabulous for the kids on a rainy afternoon. We also loved browsing the quirky shops on the high street. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and we would very highly recommend a stay in Deal at this property.
Perfect family Christmas holiday
By Anon on 30-Dec-2015
Firstly, the booking process was very smooth and my contact with Moira has been lovely.
When we reached the house we were blown away by the special Christmas touches that had been left for us... Beautiful Christmas tree, lights, decorations, and practical items such as turkey tin and Christmas tea towels!
The house is located along a road full of houses oozing character and history. The comfy lounge with an open fire is great and even though it was unseasonably warm we did light the fire as we'd promised our daughters that they could toast marshmallows and make 'smores' this was definitely a hit!
The kitchen is extremely well equipped - plenty of crockery,glassware and cutlery . It's a great kitchen for families and we enjoyed our mealtimes. The sun room off the kitchen is very light and airy and we did sit out in there for a while although it was a little cooler than the rest of the house as you'd expect in December!
The WIFI works perfectly - no dead spots even over 3 floors!
The first floor bedroom is beautiful - with a very comfortable bed and period furniture. The bathroom is down a few stairs which take a little getting used to but once again in great condition and perfect for the family.
The two bedrooms on the top floor were tastefully decorated with plenty of storage and perfect for our girls aged 10 and 13.
Our entire holiday was fantastic and we felt very much at home in this beautiful house.
Moira is a fabulous host and her kindness and thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. We have rented many holiday properties over the years and this is undoubtedly the best we have stayed in - beautiful, practical and homely.
We would like to return in the Summer to experience more that Deal has to offer
