Taking the road out to the beach and wildlife reserve at Dungeness is a journey like no other. It’s bleak but beautiful. You feel like you're arriving on a movie-set.
The theatre is all there; vast skies, expansive beach, contemporary architecture; intruiging artists’ retreats and bird life swooping out at sea. A perfectly formed stage for another day. When you know that from here fuel was pumped to France to support the D Day landings, or that here is the site of the original research base for triangulated radar, you can’t help but feel that these shores reveal more stories waiting to be told.
And that's why we love Dungeness. It feels quiet and stylishly contemplative. It has an other-worldliness about it; whilst being very much of the of 21st Century it its look and feel. Come see what makes it so special.
Fiona Naylor, Founding partner at Johnson Naylor and owner of Pump Station, Radar, Coastguard Lookout and Fog Signal, offers Bloom Stays guests four striking buildings.
