Come to your senses in weird and wonderful Dungeness. Amidst a brilliant bird paradise, an intriguing coast line and the dramatic back drop of the Dungeness Power station, stands the bright and brave The Retreat. A light, sensitively designed contemporary holiday home split in 3 parts, yet all inter-connected with each other, like man and nature. Inviting you and your family or friends to chill, relax, dine and laugh together.

The architect Guy Hollaway designed the house with open plan living areas with the aim of bringing the outdoors in. At the same time creating an uncluttered and spacious yet welcoming feel in the house that flows from one area to another. The house encourages you to discover sumptuous bedrooms behind sleek doors, hidden wardrobes behind white walls. The crème de la crème is a fantastic family room with 6 adult bunk beds, what a treat!

Rain or shine, Dungeness is great for coastal walks. So get your walking boots on for some bracing walks in a wild landscape, buy some super fresh fish en-route and stop for drink at the local pub, all on your doorstep.

The sky by night is a feast ... little light pollution, so look up to the sky.... count your lucky stars.

WHAT MAKES THIS AREA SO SPECIAL...

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.
