About The Pump Station

The Pump Station is a unique building, built during World War 2 as a pumping station to send fuel though undersea pipes to France to support the D-Day landings, now beautifully converted into a fabulous, contemporary holiday home. Situated on the world renowned Dungeness Estate, a unique shingle beach that sits 3 miles into the English Channel, it offers stunning sunrises and sunsets, endless walks and peace and tranquillity.

The property has a large open plan living space with a fully equipped and modern kitchen, a large dining table and comfortable seating around a log fire. Five floor to ceiling windows allow the light to stream in, and offer amazing views of the nature reserve on your doorstep. Featured in Elle Decoration (UK) in September 2017.

What makes this area
So special...

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.
