The Old Fire Station, Kent – a dog friendly Sykes Cottage

Up to 4 dogs can stay at The Old Fire Station in the village of St. Margaret’s at Cliffe, in Kent.

Until 2012, this lovely cottage was the St. Margaret’s at Cliffe fire station and has been lovingly converted into a stunning holiday home where couples, friends and families can enjoy space and relaxation in style and stay close to walks, pubs, beaches and easy drives to popular historic towns.

The Old Fire Station offers three large double bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities, and a single bedroom making it a perfect choice for extended families looking to holiday together with their pets without getting under each other’s feet!

The huge open plan living area reminds guests of its former use, with a ceiling high enough to accommodate a fire engine, now just the place to setting down to enjoy a DVD and a glass of wine after a day exploring The White Cliffs of Dover with your four-legged friends.

At The Old Fire Station, you will find a well-equipped kitchen, with its central island and breakfast bar.

There is also a double oven, so cooking a special dinner for two or a celebratory meal for the whole group can be prepared.

There is a large dining area with French doors leading to a rear, enclosed lawned area, a safe and secure garden, perfect for you and your dogs to relax in.

With so many interesting places to visit around the area of St. Margaret’s at Cliffe, your days will be full to overflowing. Take long walks across fields and along footpaths, try beachcombing along the shoreline, and then stop off for a pub lunch on your way to visit the historic towns of Deal or Dover, both with castles to clamber over.

The Old Fire Station at St. Margaret’s at Cliffe is the perfect holiday home at any time of year.
