"Thank you Catherine for the beautiful, homely touches throughout Samphire."
Your home is in such a lovely part of Deal for pottering about, and the surrounding area is wonderful to explore too. We enjoyed swimming each day and then having just a short walk back home. The house has so many places to relax with the outside courtyard, as well as the dining area, and two lounges. We would love to come again with it feeling like a home from home. Many thanks, Susie.

quaint and beautiful
I have stayed here a couple of times as it is perfectly located in the old part of Deal. The 3 bedrooms upstairs are bright and airy, comfy beds and quaint with a bathroom and anther seperate toilet. They have just renovated the kitchen seating area which was a lovely surprise, it is now a large, bright and sunny space givien access to a really cute little garden. We usually go out to the fabulous restuarants nearby but make breakfast in the morning, great kitchen with all the amenities as well as a washing machine and dish washer. There are 2 TV rooms which is great (one can double up as a snug/bedroom) and the best thing it is really quiet and peaceful. Great place for family and friends.

Delightful fisherman's cottage
Me and my daughter and 2 sets of twins have just returned from a delightful visit at samphire house. The cottage is a listed property a stones throw from the beach. The cottage is on 4 floors and looks full of original features. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped and I'm so pleased they catered for children with a selection of plastic plates and beakers. Along with adequate crockery. These cottages are old quaint and delightful and modernisation would be a crime we loved it just the way it is.

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.
