LOCATION Located within the Dungeness National Nature Reserve, where a random collection of dilapidated sheds, fishing huts and decaying boats dot the landscape, abandoned and lost in time at the dramatic other-worldliness of the shingle headland spit that is Dungeness. The desolate, remote wilderness of this protected coastline of international conservation importance comprising the largest shingle beach in Europe, is filled with unusual flora, including viper's bugloss, blackthorn, Nottingham catchfly and wild carrot, and is a haven for a plethora of birdlife and a rich array of insects, most notably the moth species. Strangely alluring and calming, this extraordinary landscape is home to two lighthouses, the terminus of the RHDR miniature steam railway which runs a few yards in front of the cottage, a lifeboat station, Derek Jarman's cottage, an art gallery, together with, in the distance, the dramatic form of a nuclear power station. There are local shopping facilities and amenities catering for most day to day needs in Greatstone and Littlestone as well as several local pubs. New Romney is approximately six miles away offering supermarkets, banks, as well as a wider range of shopping facilities. The Ancient Town of Rye, famed for its historical associations and cobbled ways is about 10 miles to the west. The Channel Tunnel at Folkestone is approximately 16 miles and Dover approximately 26 miles. Mainline railway stations locally are at Appledore and Ham Street both within 9 miles being on the Ashford to Eastbourne line. Ashford International is approximately 13 miles and has high speed connections to London St Pancras in 37 minutes.

DESCRIPTION A restored fisherman's cottage, featured in The Guardian and described by Kent Online as "perfect for a romantic getaway," presenting attractive weatherboard clad timber framed elevations set with hardwood double glazed windows beneath a pitched slate tiled roof. The property was lovingly restored in 2010 retaining the character with the original wood-panelled interior giving a timeless feel. The accommodation is arranged over two levels, as shown on the floor plan. Due to the nature of the 'nonstandard' construction, the property may not be suitable for main stream mortgage lending and we therefore recommend any prospective buyers ensure that they have thoroughly investigated this aspect prior to offering.
