About The Retreat

Introduction

"\\Try epically wild Dungeness where many former fishermen’s homes have been given Grand Designs-style makeovers. The Retreat is all on one level with glass walls looking out to sea and room for 10 people. For kids there’s an awesome six-bunk room in its own wing stocked with toys plus two stylish doubles. Grandparents will like the effortless birdwatching binoculars supplied and everyone will love the contemporary wood-burner around which evenings inevitably revolve\\ - The Sunday Times Travel Magazine April 2018.\nCome to your senses in weird and wonderful Dungeness. Amidst a brilliant bird paradise an intriguing coast line and the dramatic back drop of the Dungeness Power station stands the bright and brave The Retreat. A light sensitively designed contemporary holiday home split in 3 parts yet all inter-connected with each other like man and nature. Inviting you and your family or friends to chill relax dine and laugh together.\nThe architect Guy Hollaway designed the house with open plan living areas with the aim of bringing the outdoors in. At the same time creating an uncluttered and spacious yet welcoming feel in the house that flows from one area to another. The house encourages you to discover sumptuous bedrooms behind sleek doors hidden wardrobes behind white walls. The crème de la crème is a fantastic family room with 6 adult bunk beds what a treat\nRain or shine Dungeness is great for coastal walks. So get your walking boots on for some bracing walks in a wild landscape buy some super fresh fish en-route and stop for drink at the local pub all on your doorstep.\nThe sky by night is a feast ... little light pollution so look up to the sky.... count your lucky stars."

Green credentials: The Retreat benefits from double triple glazed windows. The majority of windows are from a Danish company called Svarre and these are extremely good at keeping the cold out and the heat in. The walls are very well insulated, so in winter once Dungeness Retreat is warm it stays warm! The house also has Photovoltaics (like solar panels) therefore the house actually has two electricity meters, one to heat the house, one for the electricity the house produces that the National Grid buys back.
