“It has been a privilege to be the latest custodians of such an incredible and historical property. When we came here 43 years ago it was virtually derelict with holes in the roof, cardboard in the windows and water running down the walls and it took us years of loving care and hard work to create the truly unique place you see today. Over time we were delighted to develop the hotel, spa and restaurant since one of us was a Michelin star chef who had worked for the Roux brothers in London for many years. However a couple of years ago we decided to close the hotel as we were getting on in years and our son had opened a 17 bedroom hotel and restaurant in the centre of St Margaret at Cliffe. We returned the house to a private residence and have enjoyed our semi retirement ever since but we now feel that at our age it is time to pass his amazing home on to another custodian.
We have a very friendly neighbourhood and the village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe provides everything we need on a daily basis. There is a post office, village shop, a number of restaurants, our son’s hotel and four pubs including the well known Coastguard at St Margaret's Bay. There are a wide range of societies and clubs including bowls, tennis, cricket and football as well as a history and horticultural society, among many others. Not to mention the St. Margaret’s players for those with a more theatrical bent. For the younger members of the community there are also very active scout, guide and brownie troops as well as two riding stables. We are not far from Dover and Folkestone for access to the Continent and Martin Mill and Dover for the main-line station, while it is only a short drive to the lovely town of Deal with its seafront, individual shops, bars and restaurants. There are wonderful walks to the South Foreland Lighthouse – the first in the world to have electric light – and down to St Margaret’s Bay through National Trus
