Create an unforgettable experience here, and admire Dungeness from 'Fog Signal,' a former foghorn testing station run by Trinity House, which was originally set up by Henry the VIII.
Beautifully designed and equipped with Miele appliances, it has a limestone floor with underfloor heating and contrasting bare oak, ceiling to floor glass and beautiful contemporary furniture pieces, ensuring not only a unique stay but a wonderfully comfortable and memorable one too.
The estate, in which the building sits, is a bed of seemingly endless pebbles, surrounded by a unique and fascinating landscape. The sea invites you to the front of the home whilst the vast open landscape of Romney Marsh is behind. Not forgetting the most undeniably interesting backdrop of the Nuclear Power station. Quite like being in the middle of a film set!
The interior has been transformed with the highest quality fittings and materials, and the addition of a log burner in the open plan sitting/ dining room makes it ideal for those crisp winter breaks. Through the large windows with beautiful large double doors, catch a glimpse of 'Cap Gris Nez,' the closest point of France to England, on a clear day.
The indulgent bathroom has two teak baths and a shower - perfect after a long walk. Transform the space in the evening and retire to the sleeping area, drawing the bespoke curtaining to completely envelope you.
What makes this area so special...
The Old Lighthouse is a popular visitor attraction, as is the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway which passes close by, a wonderful way to enjoy Kent's scenery.
There are two pubs on the reserve, The Britannia and The Pilot, and the unique 'Fish Hut' selling caught-on-the day fresh fish and lobster rolls in summer.
This is recognised and protected mostly through its conservation designations as a national nature reserve (NNR), a Special Protection Area (SPA), a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) of Dungeness, Romney Marsh and Rye Bay.
There is a remarkable variety of wildlife living at Dungeness, with over 600 different types of plant: a third of all those found in Britain. It is one of the best places in Britain to find insects such as moths, bees and beetles, and spiders; many of these are very rare, some found nowhere else in Britain.
