In The Area

The Old Lighthouse is a popular visitor attraction, as is the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch steam railway which passes close by, 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 and lobster rolls in summer.
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.

Testimonials

Inspired Conversion   5/5
"An inspired adaptation of a utilitarian building, with a distinctive use of materials: brutalist concrete, wide oak boards and "Beuysian" felt curtains. Very well finished, with a fine and well stocked kitchen and elegant furnishings and fittings. And all in Dungeness's otherworldly setting"
Robert Suttie  |  21 July 2021
Incredible house in an other-worldly location   4.8/5
"The Pump Station is an incredible house, full of interesting and unusual character, it made for a completely unique stay. The house was very well equipped, particularly in the kitchen with absolutely everything you could need to cook in house. The location was great, just a few minutes walk to the beach and with incredible views over Dungeness peninsula and of the power station, making for an atmospheric location."

Our stay at the Pump Station, Dungeness   4.3/5
"Just had a fabulous week with friends and family in Dungeness, staying at the Pump House. Fabulously designed accommodation in a wild place that we absolutely loved. We enjoyed great walks around the area, including to theSound Mirrors in New Romney, Camber sands and Rye as well as a trip on the railway. Great food at the Fish shack, the Globe at Rye and the pilot, and the Britannia is a excellent spot for a sunset beer. We will be back."
