    "Get away from it all in this beautifully converted tower, originally an HM Coastguard radar monitoring station for shipping in the Channel. Thoughtfully converted to a contemporary building with modern furnishing and high-end comforts, imagine waking to the sound of the sea, blissfully putting the rest of the world aside, with a dramatic view in every direction." - Canterbury Index Magazine (March, 2018)
    "Isolated, stylish and quirky - this bolthole has it all. Sat in the middle of the pebbles on Dungeness’ quiet shores, this former coastguard’s lookout has been reborn by interior architecture firm Johnson Naylor. It’s retained the original 50s structure, while integrating quality furnishings such as limestone floors. The minimalist design calls for no doors - simply walls - and a metal staircase that oozes modernity." - Coast Magazine (October, 2017)
    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 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 its 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, holidaymakers have come to expect, including underfloor heating, beautiful limestone 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.
