We had a fantastic week at this beautiful and expansive home in the quaint village of Kingsdown. Location is perfect for us - a stone's throw from busier Deal but closer to the quieter beach area of Kingsdown and the lovely Zetland Arms which is just a few minutes walk from your doorstep. The benefit of being a bit farther away is also the larger houses found in this area and Oldestairs was a perfect example of large Arts & Crafts style property with a huge garden and plenty of space for the children to run around and enjoy themselves.

The house is vast - much bigger than illustrated in the photographs, and the garden in particular was enormous! One slight comment was that despite the garden being so big there was no outdoor table and only 4 garden chairs - which for a house that sleeps 8 was a bit inconvenient – and a shame to not be able to dine outside in the evenings near the Barbeque and firepit. Although the owner did kindly allow us to use a table they had stored away for our visit - it's perhaps something for them to consider investing in for future guests.

The house itself was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated throughout and retained a plethora of original features all in immaculate condition which was so nice to see! Despite it being quite warm, there was a lovely breeze off the sea so we felt quite comfortable sleeping at night - and the outside balcony or front terrace were lovely places to sit and have a drink in the evenings.

We found a few things were missing when we checked in but the team at Keepers got those replaced as quickly as possible. They really are very helpful and attentive and despite asking quite a few things of them whilst we were there, nothing seemed like too much trouble - which is why we would always choose them when booking on the Kent Coast.

Overall a fantastic home and we hope to visit again in the near future.

We had a wonderful short stay at this fabulous example of the Arts and Crafts era, sympathetically modernised to reflect today’s expectations whilst maintaining the integrity of the house. A privilege to stay and enjoy the experience.

Oldestairs House is absolutely stunning. A cosy, well appointed, romantic country house, which has been made even more special by a thoughtful and tasteful unified contemporary design. Every room is beautiful. The house goes on forever (the photos don't show the half of it!), meaning there's no danger of ever feeling cramped, even with a full house. We stayed at Oldestairs over New Year and, although it wasn't very cold, cosy nights by the fire and playing games in the gorgeous living room were top of the bill. We also made frequent trips to the beach for some chilly swims followed by cosy pints at the lovely Zetland Arms (book to avoid disappointment!) Walking North along to the coast to Deal or South along the cliffs to St Margarets made for good days out.

I really can't recommend this house highly enough. Everything was in perfect working order, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and more, every bed in every room was very comfortable. I'm already looking at booking again for the summer - I can imagine how beautiful the house, its garden and the area would be when it's warm and sunny.

Thank you for the perfect end to 2021, a fantastic start to 2022, and for providing everything I needed for a gathering of much loved friends after a difficult couple of years.
