Coastguard Lookout Summary

Recently featured on AOL Travel as one of the quirkiest places to stay with the kids in the UK.

Wake to the sound of the sea, explore the dramatic landscape with its renowned light, then warm up in the atmospheric pubs of Romney Marsh, stroll along the shingle beach, look out across the vast open sea and you'll feel like you've arrived in another world.

Stay at Coastguard Lookout and discover a fascinating landscape full of myth and legend, surrounded by the haunting vastness of Romney Marsh, a flat, open landscape of wide skies with a backdrop of the eerie and majestic Nuclear Power station.

Dungeness, Britain's only desert, with its wild landscape, is intensely peaceful, there are dramatic views in every direction. Coastguard Lookout is a warm and welcoming place converted by renowned interior architecture firm Johnson Naylor who retained the original 50's structure whilst cleverly transforming the interior using the highest quality fittings and materials, crafted so that it sensitively retains echoes of it's former function overlooking the Channel. The unique layout will appeal to those looking for something cosy, contemporary and different.

The tower offers much of the creature comforts, holiday makers have come to expect, including underfloor heating, beautiful lime stone floors, Wifi, and a log burner in the sitting room, ideal for those crisp winter breaks, watching an endless procession of ships on the horizon through the panoramic windows, with on clear days glimpses of Cap Gris Nez, the closest point of France to England.

Built originally as a HM Coastguard radar monitoring station for shipping in the Channel, when this role was no longer needed with the advent of GPS, the building was converted as a studio and weekend home for a growing family, into this contemporary home, the perfect location for a holiday away from the routine and stress of modern life.

Described by the Great Destinations Radio Show as one of the most unusual places to stay in the UK, it really is one of our most unique holiday cottages in Dungeness. Listen to the full interview here.

Local Information about Dungeness, Kent

Dungeness is located in an un-spoilt 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.
