A former fisherman’s cottage, Lifeboat Cottage dates back to the 1800s but has recently been tastefully renovated to provide a holiday home that blends contemporary style and modern amenities with traditional seaside charm.

Nestled in a quiet street in Walmer’s conservation area, it’s a stone’s throw from the beach and a short walk along the front to Deal’s town centre, with its quirky independent shops, markets and cafés. Even closer is the Strand, with an attractive green and bandstand, traditional bakery, pubs, convenience stores and a café where you can enjoy a superb full English with a view all the way to France. You can even buy freshly caught fish direct from the boatmen on the beach.

Deal itself is a charming, unspoilt Georgian seaside town with two Tudor castles, local museums and a striking modernist pier all worth a visit. Within a thirty minute drive are the cathedral city of Canterbury, Dover Castle, and the major shopping outlet at Ashford. For two legs or two wheels, there are plenty of country and coastal paths and trails to explore.

Golfers, too, are spoilt for choice, with three superb British Open courses nearby – Royal St. Georges, Royal Cinque Ports and Princes.

This particular stretch of Kentish coast offers you the Turner Contemporary, Dreamland and the extraordinary shell grotto in Margate, Dickensian Broadstairs, Ramsgate’s Royal Harbour, Whitstable and the picturesque Medieval streets of Sandwich. Enough for plenty of days out.

And of course, France is just 20 miles away by sea.

Wherever you get to, Lifeboat Cottage is the perfect spot to return to. Downstairs is a light and airy lounge complete with working fireplace, a spacious kitchen diner and bathroom. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one with views and a wall-mounted TV. Outside, the delightful courtyard garden is the ideal spot to catch the last rays of sunshine, and there is handy side access for bikes and pushchairs. Sky TV (including Sky Sports) and Wi-fi are both included so you’ll never miss a match or a message.

Dogs are very welcome to Lifeboat Cottage (as they are in many pubs and cafés in Deal) but no smoking, please, for the comfort and enjoyment of our non-smoking guests.

Perfect Cottage


By Gary B on 20-Oct-2016


Lifeboat Cottage is simply beautiful. It is perfectly located just one road back from the beach but with a sea view from the main bedroom. Parking is easy and the location is incredibly quiet despite there being pubs, restaurants and a range of shops very close by. The cottage is spacious and incredibly well equipped and we were particularly impressed by the fact that lots of essentials such as condiments, tea, coffee and milk and washing up liquid were provided. Additionally, Mark and Sarah were good enough to leave a gorgeous cream cake in the fridge for us. We only met Mark, and he gave us a good introduction to the cottage and advice on where to eat. He stayed in touch with us by text throughout and was a brilliant host. The local fish and chip shop is great, as is the nearby Indian take away, Saffron. We really enjoyed being able to step outside the door and either walk or cycle along the coast. We liked Walmer and Deal and also enjoyed visiting Sandwich and a cycle ride up to Broadstairs. Additionally, we spent a fantastic day at Walmer Castle which is well worth a visit. My only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough, but we hope to remedy this soon!

The cottage was as described, it was clean and well maintained. Mark met us as promised and showed us around the cottage even though we were a day late in arriving. I would definitely recommend this property, especially with dogs as there is a garden. It is just one street from the beach where you can let the dogs roam. Deal was incredibly dog friendly and it was a quick walk into the town center.

Wonderful


By Barbara D on 25-May-2015

The cottage lived up to all our expectations, clean and very tastefully furnished. What is shown on the Webb site is not nearly as good as the real thing. The kitchen has every thing you would need if you decided to cook. If not plenty of good Pubs and restaurants nearby. Whatever you decide to do you have a really comfortable bed to come back to.Perfect place to explore Kent or pop up to London. Sarah and Mark gave us a great welcome. We are looking forward to returning. Barbara and Ray Dear Hampshire

Lovely Cottage


By Paula M on 27-Mar-2015

Lifeboat Cottage is lovely. Just set back from The Strand, with views of St. Saviour’s Church (Church on the Beach), Lifeboat Station, The Green and the picturesque beach huts it has the perfect location. This stylish cottage is bright, cheerful, well equipped and beautifully furnished with every attention to detail. The owners, Mark and Sarah, have done their utmost to ensure visitors have a wonderful stay and nothing is too much trouble. The bonus is that it’s pet-friendly and my dog had a great holiday as well as me. I would highly recommend Lifeboat Cottage and have already booked my return visit. Recommended for: Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway.

From start to finish a perfect break in a perfect cottage. Mark made us feel very welcome, showed us around the cottage and advised us how everything worked. Our dog, Pebbles, made herself at home straight away! Cottage is very well equipped - from tea/coffee & milk to soap and toileteries in the bathroom, to kitchen utensils etc. Then the icing on the cake; or rather the cake itself- a delicious Victoria sponge in the fridge from Sarah. Front bedroom had a delightful sea view;and the bed was so comfortable. The cottage was both modern and quaint. The location was perfect: 1 minute to the bakers for fresh bread in the morning, and to the newsagents/convenience shop, & less than 2 minutes to the beach with a promenade / cycle path / green that went on for miles. Easy walk into Deal and to Deal and Walmer Castles. The cottage was also ideally located for St Margarets Bay, Dover and Broadstairs, which we enjoyed visiting. Everywhere we went to was very dog friendly, but I would also add that the cottage and resort would be ideal for a family with children; there is so much to explore in the area. Fantastic fish and chips at the Blue Mermaid, near Deal Pier, and a wonderful meal at the Kings Head - very cosy inside away from the stormy weather that had blown in on the Sunday night. Before booking, we looked at many cottages in the Deal area and did a lot of homework, which paid off as Lifeboat Cottage lived up to previous reviews and more. Thank you Mark and Sarah for having this lovely home. We hope to return to Lifeboat Cottage again in the near future.

Lifeboat Cottage is adorable. It is immaculately and stylishly presented and you will find everything you need there for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. You can lie in bed and enjoy a view of the church, the lifeboat station and beyond that, the sea. The owners have clearly enjoyed adding many touches to delight their guests. You will find basic supplies and lots of extras to welcome you. I loved my first ever week in Deal and will certainly be returning. Many thanks to Mark and Sarah.
