About Glen Hill House

This grand, charming self-catering holiday home offers the chance to step back time to enjoy a time reminiscent of that detailed in such stories as Jane Erye. Traditionally furnished as one would expect with many special touches to make the holiday cottage feel like home. A spacious regal sitting room, quite the tranquil haven with original fireplace and huge floor to ceiling windows and doors that open onto a large conservatory.

The large country kitchen has been beautifully finished with high quality fixtures and fittings with a more modern feel and has every conceivable appliance including a Rangemaster five ring cooker with Cooker hood . A long refectory oak table surrounded by chairs is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a feast with family or friends.

The formal dining area, again offering a captivating feel of a bygone era, offers wood paneling and a full length dining table which seats 20 comfortably.

Upstairs the four bedrooms offer ample space, many considered suites, carefully furnished in keeping with the house and all have plenty of wardrobes and storage space. The three bathrooms make it the ideal place for larger groups of family and friends to base their stay either for a short break or a longer family holiday and with the added bonus of The Wing, which sleeps 6, there is room for everyone.(please ask for more details on the wing)

There is parking for several cars on the private sweeping driveway and a beautifully kept 2 acre garden for you to enjoy with breathtaking views of the surrounding coastline and Walmer Castle. All in all this self-catering holiday home in Kent is the ideal place to stay if peace and tranquility is what you are looking for.

What makes this area
So special...

Ideally located for a celebration, tucked away at the top of a hill with spectacular views and yet right on the edge of the trendy seaside town of Deal. Here retro shops, quirky cafes and excellent fish restaurants abound let alone the fun of an old fashioned pier and a bandstand that is still used at weekends. If you can tear yourself away from all the fun of a traditional seaside town inland is the historic cathedral city of Canterbury where you can jump on a punt and learn the history or just explore the stunning cathedral and close.
