We stayed in a lovely house overlooking the sea. Very luxurious house. We could have stayed forever. Plenty of space. Great kitchen, lounge, bedrooms, bathroom and washing machine. Magnificent. Excellent hosts and homemade biscuits. Thoroughly recommend staying here. Dover is a beautiful little town.
