Turnstone Cottage, 4 Portobello Court, Deal, CT14 6LA

Getting There

Turnstone is easily accessible by car or train. Deal station is just 10 minutes walk through the town; while Dover is a 15 minute drive away. 

The cottage is at the end of a pedestrian alley, Portobello Court, that runs off Middle Street.  It is about 50 yards from both the sea front and the High Street. Some satnav systems will take you to the southern end of Middle Street: whether  you're driving from Dover or Sandwich, you should follow the sea front past the Royal Hotel and then look out for Golden Street and Silver Street on the left. Any of the roads to the left will take you down to Middle Street; heading north, Portobello Court is on the left-hand side, just after The Ship pub.

 

Parking & Unloading

Parking in Deal is charged for 7 days a week, year round.  There is free parking about 300 yards from Turnstone - north of Alfred Square and North Street, on both the sea front and the roads behind.

Middle Street is narrow and has double yellow lines on both sides.  Most people unloading to houses on Middle Street and the roads around it will stop their car in the road, blocking it completely to other traffic, while they quickly get bags out of the car and into the house.  Other drivers in the area are used to this happening and it shouldn't be a problem - it's very easy to get around someone stopped in Middle Street by taking one of the side roads up to the front and turning back down the next one.  Please be considerate though, particularly to pedestrians who should still be able to get past your car.
