Just added: ‘Coastguard Lookout' in Dungeness, KentBack to latest posts
We have just added one of the UK’s quirkiest vacation rentals to our portfolio!
‘Coastguard Lookout’, in Dungeness, Kent is a former 1950s radar monitoring station for shipping in The Channel, decommissioned following the arrival of GPS.
Naturally, it offers spectacular, panoramic views of the open sea and is situated just a few steps from the water itself.
Holidaymakers can watch an endless procession of ships on the horizon through the panoramic windows. And on clear days, even catch a glimpse of Cap Gris Nez, the closest point of France to England.
Inside, the entire property is open plan – with no doors: division is by way of walls and a staircase.
Creature comforts include underfloor heating; beautiful lime stone floors; Wi-Fi and a log burner in the sitting room.
Guests can explore the vast shingle landscape of Dungeness, one of the country's most protected areas - and even buy fresh sea food from the nearby ‘Fish Hut’ to bring back and barbeque.
Sleeping 5 in two bedrooms, prices start from £895 for a 7 night stay.
