Host Information

Host review score

The Five Bells is a traditional village pub, it is situated on the outskirts of Deal, some traffic noise can be experienced as it is partly on the main road into Deal, however this is not a busy road at night. The rooms are situated above the pub itself so some noise is to be expected during opening hours.
Ringwould is a pretty little rural village on the outskirts of Deal and Dover, We are less than ten minutes drive to the port of Dover, so perfect for an overnight stay before arriving at the terminal. There are plenty of coastal and village walks and there are several castles close by to explore.
