Deal has been named as one of Britain’s best coastal towns by The Telegraph online.
An article by Becky Dickinson lists the top 20 coastal towns to consider if one is planning to relocate to the coast.
Readers have been voting on where they think is best, with Deal already waves ahead of its competition.
Deal has 39% of the vote, while second is Whitby in North Yorkshire with 9%.
The Telegraph comments on the town’s fifties vibe with its attractive mix of writers, musicians and business people.
Nigel Colebrook of Bright and Bright commented: “It’s a destination town. You only come to Deal to come to Deal.
“It’s still relatively unchanged, unspoilt.”
The media group also gives mention to the sought-after conservation area of Middle Street, with Georgian cottages selling for £300,000 to £400,000.
But relocators should still give thought to the old miners’ homes, which start at £150,000.
This is just another string to Deal’s bow, after the town won the accolade of High Street of the Year in January. Deal was also listed as one of the top 30 best places to visit for a weekend retreat by The Times newspaper, in April.
