We warmly welcome you to our lovely, three-room, B&B-apartment at the Watch Tower, Dungeness. The suite is private and completely for your own use (no other guests). Also you may come and go as you please, day and night, as the accommodation has its own entrance and key. We live in the other half of the house, with our own entrance but with internal access to the suite - for bringing in breakfast and clearing away. Scroll down for much more.
You will enjoy an attractive bedroom with comfortable twin beds (medium-firm mattresses), together with an en-suite bathroom with a shower over a Jacuzzi bath, and bespoke tiles depicting Dungeness. Being in the bright conservatory-living room is like being in open Dungeness but in the warm and dry. It's so relaxing, guests don't want to leave! From here, enjoy the stunning views and sunsets. The space is well-heated and snug in winter. We use white, Egyptian cotton bed linen and hypo-allergenic duvets and pillows (firm and soft).
We serve a substantial and delicious breakfast (see our own website). There is a table and we provide a fridge, egg-boiler, toaster, and kettle. Also of course the eggs, bread and other food and drinks for breakfast! And you will find great pub food and beers three minutes walk away. Or guests are welcome to bring their own picnic food and drink for lunch or an evening meal.
Babies are very welcome and we make no charge for babies up to age 3 (but please bring your baby's own bedding and food).
Dogs are very welcome but may we please discuss them beforehand. We make no charge for dogs.
We provide free, off-the-road parking.
Smokers are very welcome to smoke in the garden.
We are open every day of the year. All seasons on Dungeness have a particular charm. Summer brings a brilliant array of red poppies and blue-mauve viper’s bugloss amid one third of all British wildflower species. Or come in winter for its huge, pink-tinted skies. Spring and autumn bring migrating birds of course. The sea is wonderful at all times and Dungeness even in the fog is satisfyingly mysterious.
Do note that the Watch Tower is lovely for a Christmas or New Year break. For Christmas lunch or New Year’s Eve dinner, there are good restaurants a half hour drive away (in Rye and other places), or Christmas lunch at Demetrios Greek/English restaurant three miles away. Booking meals for the festive days or evenings is essential. The Pilot Inn and Demetrios also serve food during this season but you would need to check precisely when. Alternatively, why not bring your own picnic food, we have a fridge, or we are happy to microwave simple meals for you in this season.
The door of the accommodation opens straight onto the pleasing patio and garden which guests are free to use. At the end of the garden is a secluded (if sometimes windy!) spot for guests use with bench, table, and chairs.
We are five minutes on foot from the beach (great swimming) and the famous Pilot Inn. We are in walking (or short driving) distance of Derek Jarman’s cottage, the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, the Old Lighthouse, Dungeness Bird Observatory, the RSPB Dungeness Nature Reserve, the Britannia Inn, and Demetrios Greek restaurant. We are in easy driving distance of Rye, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Hastings, Hythe, Folkestone, Port Lympne Zoo, Great Dixter, and many other attractions.
Dungeness is an artists, photographers, and nature-lovers dream. A holiday here is perfect for birdwatchers, and also walkers, cyclists, swimmers, and kite-surfers, Further, this is a Dark Skies place and wonderful for star-gazing.
It’s great for wildflower enthusiasts (with 2/3 of British wildflower species) and moth-ers (with 2/3 of British moth species plus cross-Channel migrants). Our land is suitable for moth traps. Look out too for butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, and bumblebees.
Please see our own website for further information, including reviews from our visitors' book.
Patio, garden, sunset-facing bench behind garage, the Dungeness Estate, own parking space. The owner is sometimes in the garden but no other amenities are shared with the owner. For moth-ers, the garden is the perfect space for moth traps.
Общение с гостями
I meet and greet at check-in, bring in breakfast, clear up after breakfast, answer questions, converse as much or as little as guests like. I live at the other end of the house from the guest suite. I am contactable by the front door bell, land line, or mobile. I have a cat, and there are two neighbouring cats, but they are not in the guest suite.
Другие важные подробности
Please note that generally we are happy to accept bookings for one night only, except for the Easter and August Bank Holiday weekends when a minimum of two nights is required. Also we reserve the right to impose a minimum two-night stay at other times of the year if, for instance, our calendar is top-heavy with one-nighters. ALSO, please treat Dungeness itself with respect! See above under The Neighbourhood.
No smoking in the suite please. You may smoke in the garden but please leave extinguished stubs outside, not in the indoor waste bins. No takeaways please. It would be a bonus if guests didn't get self-tanning lotion or make-up on the bed linen as it doesn't wash out! Guests may be fairly noisy if they like. Dogs are welcome but may we please discuss them beforehand.
С 29 март 2018 - 01 апрель 2018 минимальная продолжительность бронирования — 2 ночи.
I am welcoming, warm, and friendly. I love meeting people, and am interested in many things. Originally a Londoner, I now relish life on Dungeness, by the sea, in fresh air, with vast, open skies. I run my B&B, write, paint (well sometimes), volunteer at the RSPB, and teach literature with the U3A. I do also relax! With friends, at the folk club or cinema, or with my tabby cat.
