The Dune House

The Dune House is next available for dates in 2018, see here.

The Dune House accommodates up to 9 people. It has five bedrooms:

  • Four double bedrooms on the first floor (bedrooms 1 + 2 can be made up as twins), all with a bath in the room, and en-suite shower and WC.
  • One bedroom on the ground floor (with a single bed), with an ensuite shower and WC

You enter the house via a concrete walkway set within the rising sand dunes, a large fully glazed door immediately sets the scene of the ground floor space being visually open on all sides to the landscape and views over the sea. The ground floor is largely open plan, containing dining table and chairs and a large modular seating section, set around a sunken pit space and log burning stove.

Stairs from the ground floor lead to the first floor library space, where you can access a small semi enclosed external terrace, with views out to sea. Off the library space are four bedrooms, each with their own bathroom with shower. A bath in each room allows for the visitor to soak, whilst looking out through one on the number of window apertures, framing the views over the sand dunes and the sea (bedrooms 2 and 3), or nature reserve (bedrooms 1 and 4).

Outside the house sits within the sand dune it is built upon, with a gate leading directly onto the beach.
