PS1 was built during World War 2 as a pumping station to send fuel through undersea pipes to France to support the D-Day landings. It has now been converted into a fabulous designer beach house with two en-suite bedrooms.
The spacious open plan living area offers a fully equipped and modern kitchen, a large dining table and comfortable seating around a log fire and the light streams in through five floor to ceiling windows with amazing views of the nature reserve on your doorstep. Featured in Elle Decoration UK in September 2017.
This unique shingle spit stretches 3 miles into the English Channel and offers spectacular sunrises and sunsets, a photographers and walkers paradise in all weathers.

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. The wonderful former smuggler’s town of Rye with its choice of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants is well worth a visit and only 10 miles away.
Wonderful, unique place to stay in Dungeness 4.3/5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in PS1. The location, the design and the uniqueness of Dungeness made for a completely relaxing break. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Pump Station to others - indeed I have done so already! Having said that I do have some minor suggestions. Overall as I said above I think the property is quite stunning inside, however, I do believe it is starting to become a little tired in parts. There are two specific points I would mention in this regard. Firstly, the plaster on the wall in two areas has been replaced or there's been some water leakage, this would benefit from being repainted and secondly the beautiful marble surround close to the wood burning fire would benefit from some form of deep clean. Minor points you may consider paying some attention to are; the foot stool is loose and needs repairing, the door is always quite difficult to unlock - perhaps the lock would benefit from some WD40 and finally whilst we were there we had quite a large number of ants inside the kitchen cupboards towards the right. I hope you receive this feedback in the positive way it is intended and I re-emphasise what a fantastic break we had in a stunning property.

Beautiful house but some inside issues 3.8/5
Overall we had a great holiday. We love dungeness having stayed at north vat earlier this year. The two are comparable outside but not inside. Think there should be a welcome pack or if you do not want to provide one then let us know. Also we are used to some basics being there from previous renters e.g. Tom sauce, spices etc. Would have liked to have a tv in living room. Not sure snug would work as a bedroom as have to use an en suite bathroom in other bedrooms. And finally the beds are so uncomfortable. Mattresses need replacing. As I say we did have a great week but improvements to the above would bring us back again. Thank you.

Eternally grateful to Bloom. 5/5
What an extraordinary escape this was, and only 20 minutes from home but transported to another world. We've visited Dungeness by day, but staying here is an experience on a whole new level. I was particularly mesmerised by the lighthouse at night - wow!. We felt so inspired, by the setting as well as the superb PS1 building - a stunning conversion of a WW2 pump station into a dream holiday home with so much of the original on display (concrete has never looked so good!), but all the luxuries to wallow in. Thank you Bloom Stays, you were amazing. We booked in the morning and arrived in the afternoon - I don't know of anyone else who is that dynamic and well organised. We trusted you from the word go and can't believe our luck!

Just fabulous 4.7/5
We wanted for nothing in PS. Finished to an extremely high standard with everything thought of and provided. Location is amazing - we only live around 25 miles away but it was like being in another world. Just amazing. Only thing for us was that the beds and pillows are very hard and we didn't really get a good nights sleep throughout our 3 night stay.

Great location and design 3.7/5
Stunning property with fantastic interior, top quality fit out slightly let down by uncomfortable bedding, lack of decent cleaning equipment, bath not working, internet unavailable for part of stay and nothing done. With a few tweaks this could be excellent in every category

Wild part of England, stunning property 5/5
Absolutely stunning property. Its bunker like exterior gives little away, but step through the front door and you know youre somewhere special. The house was tranquil, calming and beautifully designed. Dungeness is a quirky corner of the country, desolate yet beautiful. It was a great base from which to explore the coast and surrounding towns. We will be back for sure.

Unique stay 5/5
Fantastic opportunity to day in a beautiful building in a unique location the house was welcoming and luxurious and warm as soon as you walked in. Being surrounded by the vast shingle nature reserve, so close to the sea was very relaxing. An added bonus was buying the freshly caught fish at the local fish shack-just a few minute walk away. Would love to go back!
