Shelley Beach has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard, with a light and airy lounge, cosy dining room and kitchen downstairs, two double bedrooms and bathroom with separate shower upstairs. The bathroom is accessed through the 2nd bedroom. Free WiFi, and Sky TV. Outside the garden is the ideal spot to catch the morning sunshine and there is side access for bikes or pushchairs. No smoking please, for the comfort and enjoyment of our non-smoking guests.
Deal is the perfect holiday or weekend destination and its award-winning High Street lined with quirky independent shops, markets and cafés is just a short walk away along the unspoilt promenade. Closer still is the Strand, where you’ll find the green and bandstand, a family run bakery, pubs, convenience stores and a café serving brilliant breakfasts complete with sea view. You can even buy freshly caught fish direct from the boatmen on the beach.
Deal itself is a picturesque Georgian seaside town with two Tudor castles, local museums and a striking modernist pier all worth a visit. Within a thirty minute drive are Dover Castle, the cathedral city of Canterbury and the major shopping outlet at Ashford. If you prefer two legs or two wheels, there are plenty of country and coastal paths and trails just waiting to be explored. For golfers, the area boasts no less than three superb British Open courses – Royal St. Georges, Royal Cinque Ports and Princes.
Also within reach are 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. Head out into the countryside and you’ll find Wingham Wildlife Park, Howletts and Wildwood – all fantastic places to see animals up close and personal.
And of course, France is a mere 20 miles away if you fancy stocking up the cellar.
