Holiday Cottage in Dungeness, Kent
from £358 pwSleeps 4
This fantastic and very special Kent holiday cottage is in a spectacular position on the beach at Dungeness. The views year round are amazing and the owner has provided a telescope so you can enjoy the night sky at its best, the passing of boats up and down The Channel and even the birds for which the area is so famous.
Inside, the cottage has been completely refurbished and restored with a 30's theme from Art Deco mirrors and ornaments and glasses, with a comfortable chesterfield and armchair to sink into. Combine this lovely beach location with a wonderfully cosy woodburner and you can see the cottage is well worth a visit whatever the time of year!

Dungeness is a small community on the edge of the beach with a wonderful old-fashioned appeal and breath taking scenery. Fishermen still fish from the beach. (The owner of this cottage is one of them and if you ask him VERY nicely he might sell you some Dover sole from the catch he just brought in!) The community has an artistic and bohemian feel with clusters of weather boarded cottages, many with sculptures made of driftwood and other materials in their gardens. At certain times of the year, artists open their studios to the public.
From the cottage it is an easy walk to the lighthouse, to the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch station and café, or in the other direction you can walk to Derek Jarman's house and visit the famous shingle garden.
The Britannia pub is at one end of the road, while the well-known Pilot Inn with its renowned fish and chips is at the other. There is an art gallery, with photographs and paintings to be bought - mainly of local views.
If fishing is what attracts you, many sea anglers fish from the beach and there are boats whose owners will take you out deep sea fishing.
Further afield, Rye is within a few miles with its wonderful mix of cobbled streets, smugglers' haunts, boutiques and restaurants just waiting to be explored. For golfers, there are excellent links golf courses at both Littlestone and Rye. There is also a tremendous selection of water sports on offer including kite boarding and wind surfing with wetsuits and lessons also available.
Inland, Kent is known as the Garden of England, with some wonderful gardens to visit including the renowned Sissinghurst Castle and the beautiful garden and house of Great Dixter across the border in East Sussex, both of which are within easy driving distance, as is the Chapeldown vineyard, shop and restaurant near Tenterden where you can taste award-winning wines.
Dover Castle too is well worth a visit with its stunning fortifications and World War 11 control rooms.
All in all there is lots to see and do. Fore more ideas please look at the 'things to do' section of our website.
