The Shingle House

The Shingle House is next available for weekend dates in December, see here for details.

For dates in 2018, see here.

The Shingle House accommodates up to 8 people.

There are four double bedrooms: three on the ground floor (bedrooms 2, 3, and 4) and one on the first floor (bedroom 1, which can be made up as a twin room and has an en-suite bathroom with bath). 

Inside, The Shingle House is calming and robust. On the ground floor, the living room features a large concrete fireplace with views out across the Dungeness shingle. There are two bathrooms with showers, the largest of which is set within a Purpleheart timber floor, looking out over the landscape.

NB. if you have stayed at The Shingle House before, please note that, following feedback from customers, the large ground floor sea-facing bathroom is now a shower room.

Beyond the shower house is the kitchen and dining area. From the dining table a large wall of glass can be opened to the outside, and in the kitchen a second wall of glazing opens on to a hidden and sheltered courtyard area, ideal for al fresco eating or taking in the sun.

A small garden surrounds the property, allowing further outdoor space to relax and enjoy the Dungeness environment. From here you can wave to the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway as it passes by the end of the garden.
