An unusual Watch Tower is thought to have been built approximately 150 years ago. Today the home is a reinvention of its former self with interesting quirky living quarters that surround the central watch tower, home to a stunning master bedroom.

The home is quite different to the many on the estate as it provides for couples and also families with the bunk room and twin bedroom plus some rare outdoor garden space.

Much of the landscape on the Dungeness estate includes interesting creative buildings almost flung over the pebble shore amongst remnants of industrial materials, fisherman's boats, nets and a even some eclectic modern caravans and the odd airstream!

In the Area


Show More Show Less

Dungeness is located in an unspoilt area on the southernmost corner of the bay that stretches from Folkestone to Rye. There are some beautiful walks to explore the wild landscape, and experience the beauty of the sea and the enormous skies. The Old Lighthouse is a popular visitor attraction, as is the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway which passes close by with the miniature steam train meandering along the coast to Hythe, 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. 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.
