  • Hi we will be travelling to Spain with a full car of goods for our new home, do you have secure off road parking? Thanks

    We are in a fairly quiet neighbourhood and, although not behind lock and key, our off street parking is relatively safe as it leads onto a private garden. We are also opposite the police station which seems to be a pretty good deterrent. :-)

Trevor and Sharon Macdonald and Lady Penelope (Penny)

This comfortable family run bed and breakfast is situated in a peaceful setting with its own garden for guest use only and is one of the very few in the area with private off road parking.

Trevor and Sharon Macdonald who own and manage the bed and breakfast offer a warm and hospitable welcome to all visitors, whether staying for a short break or looking for longer term residence whilst working in the area.

Situated in the desirable west end of Folkestone. The town centre with all its restaurants, bars and clubs is only a short stroll away. The Leas Promenade and the harbour are both local attractions within easy reach. Convenient for the Channel Tunnel and Dover ferries.
