Families at The Salutation


The Coach House, and Gardener’s Cottage are ideal if you are visiting with children.  Each cottage is completely private, with multiple bedrooms and a large living room.

Both have fully equipped kitchens, including washing machines and dishwashers, to help make your stay as easy as possible.

We have all the usual equipment, such as high chairs & travel cots, and some unexpected and rather handy extras too.  Books, a toy basket, a never-ending supply of extra sheets & towels.  Children’s cutlery, stair gates, and even a baby monitor.

If there is anything specific you might need during your stay, from bananas to baby-wipes, then let us know, and we will do our best to make sure it is waiting for you upon your arrival.

Sandwich and its surrounding areas are great fun for children.  Outside the gates of The Salutation, on the quayside, is a play-park & an ice cream van (summer only!).  A river-boat tour can be booked in advance, and offers seal spotting trips.  And our local Italian restaurant offers freshly made stone baked pizzas, which you can watch being made.

Visit Dover & Walmer Castles for a history fix.

Stroll along Deal Pier and watch for the catch of the day.

Meet lions, tigers and…. penguins at Wingham Wildlife Park, just a 5 minute drive away

We have many more suggestions, and are always happy to help.
