Michelle's Cottages: Dover & Sandwich, East Kent Coast


Michelle's Cottages comprises of two, charming, self-catering holiday cottages on the East Kent coast. 

The Gate House offers a fairy-tale opportunity to stay in a mini-Gothic castle. With turret, beams and a canopied bed, this historic cottage sleeps two, plus two. Beams and other period touches feature alongside such present day luxuries as gas central heating, a fully-equipped kitchen and wi-fi.

The house dates to 1850 and is believed to have originally been the gate house to officers' accommodation for the Dover Castle garrison, who were quartered in the splendid Victoria Crescent. 

An enchanting place for a honeymoon or to celebrate that special birthday or anniversary. The Gate House stands part way up a hill, close to Dover Castle and handy for the town itself with its full range of amenities. 

The double bedroom, features a beautiful canopied bed which lends a romantic ambience.

The historic towns of Sandwich, with its narrow medieval streets and plentiful cafes, or Canterbury with its cathedral.
