This is a wonderfully characterful 16th Century Kentish Weather-boarded Lodge situated in the heart of a lovely village just a few minutes drive from the port of Dover.
With nine ensuite bedrooms and large entertaining space as well as its own penthouse apartment it's one of the areas most sought after places to stay.
Only a few minutes walk from the beach at St. Margaret's Bay and just along the coast from the vibrant coastal town of Deal.

The space
This is a perfect place for a large family get together.
It's a perfect place to stay with friends and family or even a company retreat whilst exploring beautiful White Cliffs Country.

Kitchen
This is a fully fitted commercial style kitchen with gas oven, six ring gas hob, electric bread oven, hot plate pass, microwave, freezer, fridge, coffee machine.
There is a triple sink & dishwasher. There is plenty of space for food storage and a wine cooler.

Lounge
In the stone-floored lounge there is a lovely old piano in the snug with plenty of comfy seating, there's also a log fire and exposed beam ceilings.

Bar
The beautiful hardwood bar is kitted out with beer and wine fridges a cold store and glass washer. The bar was formerly the hub of the village, a place to congregate in a proper pub setting. There's a wood-burning stove to cosy around in winter and in summer open up the doors to the garden out back for perfect summer living.

Dining Room
With seating for up to 40 people the dining room has a number of old French kitchen tables and rattan chairs. The beamed ceilings and wooden floors give it a light, airy feel with vintage Farrow and Ball colours and contemporary works from the South East Kent art scene on the walls.

The Garden
Formerly one of the best pub gardens in Kent. This place is a sun trap in summer with lots of places to sit and enjoy the sun or shade under the permanent gazebo decked dining area. There's a tin-roofed pizza shack with wood-fired oven and outside bar too.

Bedrooms and Penthouse
There are five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms on the first floor all decorated in a country house style with a hint of coastal England and local artworks on the walls.
On the second floor there are a further two ensuite bedrooms and a penthouse apartment with two bedrooms, galley kitchen, lounge and bathroom. The lounge makes a great place for kids if grown-ups are staying up a little later downstairs.

It is a lovely old building that houses a large open living space with a dining and bar area, bedrooms & a penthouse apartment.

Set in a coastal location under a mile from the beach at St. Margaret's Bay.
This is a unique place which has only just been launched on AirBnB in early 2021.

Saint Margaret's at Cliffe, England, United Kingdom

We're lucky to be in a stunning position tucked in the heart of a great little Kentish village. Here you can step down to the seaside from one door and stroll the mile to the beach or disappear into the countryside of the Kent Downs area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from the other.

I'm Gavin, my family have owned and run hotels in Kent since the 1980s. Our places have been independent and much loved places to stay, featured in great publications like The Good Hotel Guide and Michelin Guide. My family and I have enjoyed looking after thousands of guests who've enjoyed staying with us for decades, so you're in pretty 'safe hands'. We're based near St. Margaret's Bay in Kent, a fantastic place to be if you love the great outdoors as we do. We love to get out Walking on the clifftops, wild swimming in The Bay at St. Margaret's or getting out on our bikes riding around the country lanes and along the coast.
