The Watch Tower

Enjoy the Watch Tower’s lovely, private three-room suite

We warmly welcome you to our lovely, three-room, B&B suite 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.

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. There is room for an extra mattress on the floor.  There is, in addition, a conservatory-living room.  Being in there 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).  (See Rooms)

We serve a substantial and delicious breakfast (see Breakfast).  There is a table and we provide a fridge, egg-boiler, toaster, and kettle.  Also of course the eggs, bread and other food 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 an evening meal.  For the festive season, please see our Prices page.  

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.

You are very welcome to bring a baby, up to the age of three, so long as you bring everything necessary for your baby.  We do not charge for babies.

Dogs are very welcome but may we please discuss them beforehand.  We make no charge for dogs.

We provide free, off-the-road parking.

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 and 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 is 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.
