Dover on Sea exceeded expectations as the perfect romantic retreat. The bath overlooking the sea at sunset was a real treat with a glass of champagne. From excellent signage to guide you to your destination, to the quality linen and fond farewell- it was all top class and yet homely. An unexpected treat is the art collection from local artisans and unique art pieces by the owners son. A great place to come for a long weekend or a week, as there is so much to do and see. Can’t wait to come back and bring friends from Wales who are visiting in July

This is the second time we stayed at Dover on Sea, this time, for 7 days! Very relaxing safe environment with the best breakfast ever! Karin and Jurgens are the best hosts and always have time for a friendly chat and advice! Thank you for an awesome stay, see you soon!

We stayed at Dover on Sea B&B for only two nights, but would have happily extended our stay. We really loved everything about the place. The location and views are absolutely stunning and the super friendly owners were very welcoming and always happy to help. We would definitely book another stay at this B&B when being anywhere close again to Sedgefield.

We spent a night at Dover on sea in February. The room was clean, well equipped and with amazing sea views. The hostess is charming and friendly and the breakfast is top of the range with excellent variety and cooked to order.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful providing local information and cooking great breakfasts.The views from room one were amazing and the town is very laid back. For us it had a Cornwall type feel, we are from the UK.

We had a wonderful stay at Dover on Sea, despite the weather not playing ball. We felt welcome and well looked after and enjoyed the divine views over the beach (from the warmth inside). We will be back!

Our trip to Dover on Sea was amazing. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the place is, from the amazing sea views to the lovely hosts Karen and Jurgens, my friends and I enjoyed staying here and our hosts really made us feel at home. It is absolutely worth the visit .

Karen and her spouse take very good care of you. View is great. Location superb. We had lovely food at the vegan restaurant near the golf course. Julio takes excellent care of you. Even if you are a meat eater you will enjoy it there.
