Coastguard Lookout: a former 1950s radar monitoring station for shipping in the Channel

Coastguard Lookout is a former 1950s radar monitoring station for shipping in The Channel, which was subsequently decommissioned following the arrival of GPS.

Located in Dungeness, Kent, this quirky and unusual holiday cottage offers incredible views of the open sea and can be found just a few steps from the water itself. 

Panoramic windows allow visitors to watch an endless procession of ships on the horizon whilst, on clear days, they might even catch a glimpse of Cap Gris Nez, the closest point of France to England.

The property itself is entirely open plan – there are no doors – and so division is by way of walls plus a staircase.

Features include underfloor heating; lime stone floors; Wi-Fi plus a log burning stove in the lounge – the perfect welcome after a bracing walk along the shingle landscape of Dungeness…

Sleeping 5 in two bedrooms, Coastguard Lookout is available over Christmas (from the 20th December) for £1,305 for 7 nights.
