About East Cottage

On the White Cliffs and next to the Victorian lighthouse, with incredible views of the English Channel.

Wake up to a 360 sunrise when you stay in this single-storey building adjoining a Victorian lighthouse. It sits in a dramatic position, high on the cliffs of Dover, overlooking the ships sail the English Channel. The cottage itself was built in 1843 and would have housed the lighthouse keepers, who kept its light shining. 

Now, it plays host to an elegant four-bedroom holiday home for those wishing to explore the Kent coastline and the surrounding area. You’ll have 66 miles of coastal path just outside your doorstep, which will lead you through wildflower headlands, the iconic White Cliffs and a plethora of wartime history.

You could walk 20 minutes to St Margaret’s for its village, bay and white cliffs.  Or for those after a bit of culture, venture below the Dover cliffs to Fan Bay Deep Shelter, where you’ll find a complex of eerie tunnels built for the gun battery during WWII.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
