Mrs
Samphire House is in a beautiful location, just a few minutes walk from the pebbly beach in Deal. The house itself is over four floors, in the cellar is a lounge with two sofa beds. We made one up for our son to sleep on, but had to move him as the smell of damp was over powering. This room needs freshening up as the smell is quite bad. The middle floor (lower ground) was clean and quaint, with comfortable furniture in the lounge. The kitchen area was acceptable, with an oven, microwave and dishwasher. There was a narrow breakfast bar that could seat two people. The conservatory leads off from the kitchen. It had a table that seats four people. This led out to a small courtyard garden. Upstairs was a lovely master bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bed. Then there was the main bathroom with a toilet and a separate toilet next to it. On the top level, (with very steep stairs) were two further bedrooms. One with twin beds and one with a double bed. The house has lots of lovely original features, but could do with modernisation. The location was beautiful, but the smell from the damp cellar permeated throughout the house, which ruined our stay. I would not book this place again.

Quirky house, great location
Firstly, if you are looking for a minimalist house without personal items then this is not for you. If however, you want somewhere quirky, with steep stairs but lots of character that's in a really really great location and that has a little outside space for sitting and chatting and a separate second lower lounge snug (perfect for the football watchers amongst our group) and only a two minute walk from the beach or town, then this is for you. The cottage was well equipped, okay it's a little dated and maybe not to my taste but it may be to yours, and it was certainly clean enough (I'm not on Four in a Bed so I didn't lift the mattresses or inspect the bathroom with a microscope!) and the location was spot on being in the conservation area, and we got parked for free just up the road after unloading at the door. There were 5 of us and it's certainly big enough, but do be careful as if you aren't that mobile as the stairs are quite a challenge. Overall I would recommend if you want a comfortable weekend in Deal.

Very tired, itchy sheets, not good at resolving problems
On the positive side, the location is super, but the house itself needs some serious refurbishment. Filthy taps and radiators, a broken shower fitting, rope on the stairs keeps popping out. We saw rodent droppings in cupboards (understandable in old houses but ought to be cleaned!). To make matters worse, there was broken glass all over the floor when we arrived and when I phoned the owner, she said: The housekeeper is on holiday, you'll have to clean up yourselves. Heating is controlled from her phone and the house can be cold downstairs, but you can bypass if you change the settings. All in all, only if you book last minute.

Samphire Deal
A beautiful house in the heart of the historic and best part of Deal. Lots of character, period features but all the facilities you could wish for. Its a large house with lots of rooms to explore which my young son loved, particularly the den! We stay in deal every year and this is the best place we've found, we all loved it. Cath our host was lovely too, brilliant friendly comms. It made for a wonderful long weekend, thanks so much! :)

Charming, Quaint & Exceptionally Wel Equipped (a home from home)
Hello Cath, Thank for your contribution to what was an excellent holiday. We've been visiting Deal annually for over 12 years now and Samphire is easily one of the best holiday cottages we've ever stayed in; local to the seafront and high street and exceptionally well equipped - In addition to that there are the quaint and very comfortable aspects of the cottage itself. It is a real home from home. The only downside - which we couldn't have predicted - was that when we made the booking, I did not realise/know that I would be bedding in a new replacement knee! So the spiral staircases were a 'challenge', especially on the way down (!) Samphire is top of our list for our visit to Deal next year. Cheers and thanks once again. Jane, Stewart and Fiona
