Helvetia is a lovingly maintained former fisherman's cottage situated on Dungeness point with direct access to the sea and wonderful views across the English Channel. Accommodating four, it has a kingsize bed in one bedroom and a double bed in the other. The cosy oak beamed sitting room has a log burner for wintry days and nights. The large bathroom has a separate bath and shower and there is also a sunroom with spotting scope for the ample Dungeness wildlife and the ships passing closely by.

The space
Helvetia was built in the 1920s and the decor of this cosy cottage reflects the period in genuine art deco style; it is a comfortable cottage full of charm. Fresh flowers, milk, butter, bread and a homemade cake will greet you on your arrival. Dungeness still has a working lighthouse so the foghorn will be heard if the weather is foggy. Wifi can sometimes be patchy. There is ample parking for two cars.

Location

Kent, England, United Kingdom

Dungeness is unique, classed as Europe's only desert, it is a huge expanse of shingle, home to diverse flora, fauna and wildlife. Porpoises and seals are spotted almost daily from Dungeness Point and birds - often rare ones - rest here during migration. There are two pubs serving food within walking distance but the real culinary gem is the famous Dungeness Snack Shack serving fresh fishy snacks, crab and lobster direct from the family's boats, and it is a five minute walk away. The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway's station is a short walk from Helvetia. The large sandy beaches of Camber and Littlestone are close by, as are the ancient Cinque Port towns of Rye and New Romney. The big skies here are a photographer's dream as are the sunrises and sunsets.
