East Cottage

Dungeness | Kent
Enjoy an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and stay in East Cottage. The cottage has sympathetically renovated to provide a luxurious holiday home, set at the foot of The Roundhouse in Dungeness. With views across the surrounding landscape and beach beyond you will be sure to unwind and relax when staying here. Enjoy the wonders of Dungeness on foot, sit on the terrace and watch the world go by on a sunny day, or on a chilly day enjoy reading a book by one of the two fabulous woodburning stoves in the cottage. East Cottage is one of two former lighthouse keepers cottages, situated at the foot of The Roundhouse, which was once the base of the original Dungeness lighthouse. If the walls could talk they could tell you a tale or two of the former lives of the lighthouse keepers, dating back to early 19th century.

In The Area

Dungeness is located in an unspoilt area on the southernmost corner of the bay that stretches from Folkestone to Rye. There are some beautiful walks to explore the wild landscape, and experience the beauty of the sea and the enormous skies. The Old Lighthouse is a popular visitor attraction, as is the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch steam railway which passes close by with the miniature steam train meandering along the coast to Hythe, a wonderful way to enjoy Kent’s scenery. There are two pubs on the reserve, The Britannia and The Pilot, and the unique ’Fish Hut’ selling caught-on-the day fresh fish. The wonderful former smuggler’s town of Rye with its choice of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants is well worth a visit and only 10 miles away.

What our guests really think

Great cottage in a magical location   5/5
"The East Cottage is exactly as you can see from the pictures - spacious, very well decorated and equipped (especially the kitchen!). The location, if you like to be lost in the special nature of the area, is magical. And, bonus, Kathryne has been a very attentive host."

Perfect get-away   4.8/5
"East Cottage is a beautifully designed space with amazing views. It makes you feel right at home but with overtones of high-end hotel. It has every comfort you need from a well-equipped kitchen to luxurious bedrooms. It also includes a roaring wood-burner, which is just what you need to relax in front of after an active day walking around the weird and wonderful landscape that is Dungeness. This former Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage is highly recommended."

A wonderfully cosy winter stay   5/5
"My husband and I spent 3 nights at East Cottage. We arrived to find the property warm and cosy, clean and comfortable. The owners had left us some fire logs so we had a roaring fire within minutes. The cottage itself has been beautifully renovated and furnished with thoughtful pieces and finishing touches set against a calming, neutral backdrop. The kitchen was well kitted out with plots, pans and utensils for cooking. We’ve never been to Dungeness before and this was a great introduction - somewhere to hunker down by the sea, and to venture out and explore the interesting, atmospheric landscape. One of our favourite stays, we’ll definitely be back."

Beautiful Peaceful Stay   5/5
"We had a fantastic time at East Cottage. The cottage itself had everything you need - including kitchen equipment for Christmas! The owner even provided a beautifully decorated Christmas tree for us. Everything was of the highest quality - including lovely bedding, towels and comfortable beds. We absolutely loved the location on the edge of the Dungeness Estate. So beautiful and peaceful. We hope to return again one day!"

A special stay   5/5
"We had a happy and memorable stay at East Cottage celebrating a special birthday weekend. The cottage was pristine and renovated to a really high standard, with everything we needed and more. The location is perfect. We want to return in winter so we can cosy up in front of one of the fires. Highly recommended."
