The architect Guy Hollaway designed the house with open plan living areas with the aim of bringing the outdoors in. At the same time creating an uncluttered and spacious yet welcoming feel in the house that flows from one area to another. The house encourages you to discover sumptuous bedrooms behind sleek doors, hidden wardrobes behind white walls.

Accommodation Insight

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.

Dungeness is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, home to hundreds of birds and wild plants. The local pub, The Pilot Inn is well known for its fish and chips. The historic town of Rye is a short drive away as are the spectacular dunes of Camber Sands.

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.
