In the Area


Show More Show Less

Situated on the edge of the Dungeness Estate which is home to an unusual landscape. The headland on the south coast of Kent is formed largely of a shingle beach. The Dungeness reserve itself is set back from the sea, boasting mile after mile of open shingle, fresh water pits, wet grassland and stunning wildflower meadows. Dungeness is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK and designated as a Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Natura 2000 site with plenty of walks to enjoy.

For train lovers amongst you, pick up the miniature steam trains that run from Hythe, New Romney and Dymchurch and stop off at Dungeness and climb the stairs to the top of the Lighthouse for a stunning 360 degree view of the area.

Gardeners may be aware that Derek Jarman’s House and garden is located at Dungeness and you are free to walk around and enjoy his planting and sculptures.

So whatever the season you can be sure to enjoy Dungeness and all it has to offer. Don't forget to bring your raincoat as the weather can be known to turn, and your camera to capture the wonderful sights on offer. You will soon discover why it is popular with wildlife enthusiasts, artists, and walkers. Oh... and make sure you visit the renowned Snack Shack at the Dungeness Fish Hut to pick up the daily catch to cook on the BBQ or enjoy a spot of lunch!

What about the extra bits to complete your break away?

A nice few days at the Buoys in Lydd between Dungeness and New Romney 4.5/5

The Buoys is a pleasant 3 bedroom small house / converted bungalow right on the Coast Road between Dungeness and New Romney. The road is right in front of the house - so you always have the noise of cars - but beyond that is the pebbly beach which is peaceful even in the school holidays and when the tide goes out is full of different sea birds. The back garden is pebbly too and gives lovely sunsets and has the miniature railway going along the back fence. Slightly wobbly paving stones on the patio that you need to watch out for and we couldn't work out how to lock the front door from outside so ended up leaving from the back, but maybe we had missed something there. Dungeness is a 30 minute walk up the road (not a particularly interesting walk along the road although maybe there is a way to go along the backs of the houses) but not far to the Pilot or the Snack Shack. Everything was fine with the house - nice retro furniture and it's well equipped with everything in the kitchen in terms of utensils and crockery - there was an issue when we stayed that a tap wasn't working but we were provided with bottled water and it wasn't an issue. We were also left some treats when we arrived although I thought the provision of essentials could have been better - 6 tea bags for 2 people staying 4 nights and other than that only coffee, salt and pepper - was not much when the nearest shop is half a mile away. (The Air BnB description mentioned oil and it would have been annoying to arrive without that). The rooms were comfortable, I would think for 6 people the living room and kitchen might have been a little crowded, and we were lucky that it was warm enough to eat outside as the dining table was in the kitchen which wouldn't have been so nice to have dinner in. It was nice sitting at the front in the small sun room with the breeze from the beach on hot days and there are also lots of books which would be perfect for taking down to the beach. Overall a nice little place to stay with several options for other nearby places to visit.

A fantastic stay for some colleagues working in the local area 5/5

We booked The Buoys for some staff who were working on a archaeological project in the local area. The team at Bloom Stays could not have been more helpful with organising this and the property suited all of their needs. Fantastic location, beautiful interior and all the amenities required. Would definitely book again!
