Description

Sea Purse possesses possibly the most stunning location of any house on the South Coast—every visitor testifies to that. Sitting immediately underneath the White Cliffs of Dover and a balcony's-width from the beach, this historically important house was previously owned by Noel Coward, with Ian Fleming owning the adjacent house. Read James Bond's Moonraker and it's clear Fleming drew his inspiration from this beautiful location. Coward's friends—Spencer Tracey and Katherine Hepburn among others—were frequent visitors. Sea Purse amazes every visitor. You can enjoy an uninterrupted panoramic view of the English Channel, wake up to the sound of the sea on the shingle, look forward to long days on the beach, and relish relaxed suppers on the wrap-around balcony. This is the first time in 40 years that Sea Purse has been available to share.

Accommodation

Entrance Hall

Sitting Room
A wonderful large and stunning room that has been recently decorated to a very high standard. There is an enormous open fire in the middle of the room and panoramic glass windows overlooking the sea and the beach. At one end of the room is a lovely seating area with armchairs and a sofa, making the most of the incredible views out to sea. At the other end of the room there is a dining area with seating for up to eight people. There is also a bar area opening on to the sitting room.

Kitchen
A lovely light room with a good sized table that easily seats up to 8 people. The kitchen has a two door Aga, windows to the back of the property with views to the cliffs.

Snug/children's TV room
A useful room off the kitchen which would be a perfect playroom for children or for older children to watch TV.

Downstairs shower
A wet room with a shower and WC

Upstairs

En suite
Bath, shower over, basin and WC.

Twin Bedroom
A light and airy twin bedroom with magnificent views to the sea with a door to the balcony.

Twin bedroom
A bedroom with twin beds, an ideal room for children.

Single bedroom
Single bed, book shelf and wardrobes.

Family bathroom
Large bathroom with a bath, basin and WC

Outside
As you drive down to St Margaret's Bay beach, the house can be found right at the end of the beach car park tucked under the cliffs, directly on the beach. The house has a wrap around balcony on the ground floor with a superb seating area to the front. The house also has a wonderful balcony outside the bedrooms to the front.

The Area
This area of Kent which includes St Margaret's at Cliffe and St Margaret's Bay has been aptly named First Light Coast and Country. As the sun rises you can bask in the first light of the day in the midst of the White Cliffs. Surrounded by spectacular countryside throughout the year this area offers such a range of activities for the holiday maker. You can walk for miles along the deserted coastline and get inspiring views of the Heritage Coast, the Channel and also the coast of Northern France. Further inland there are the Kent Downs which are valued for their chalk grassland and wildlife.

For sporting activities there is much to offer, horse riding, cycling, swimming, water sports and golf are all available locally. In summer the beach and rock pools are perfect for children, with safe swimming in the bay. St Margaret's Bay has been for a long time a good location for surfers, kayakers and canoeists.


If you enjoy fishing then St Margaret's Bay is a good location for catching sea bass, mackerel, dogfish and sole.

The village of St Margaret's has many local amenities including a village shop, Tea rooms and three lovely pubs which all offer great food and fine ales. The Coastguard Pub on the beach is a short walk away and is an award winning pub with food made from fresh local ingredients.
The Pines Garden Museum in St Margaret's is well worth a visit and includes six acres of organically managed gardens. The 12th Century local church is also interesting with rounded arches and doorways. Further afield there is the historic Dover Castle and Walmer Castle both good locations for days out.
If France beckons then why not take a ferry from Dover or the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone for a day trip, it's so close, so don't forget to bring your passports!
Inland a short drive away is the historic City of Canterbury with its cobbled streets and magnificent Cathedral, many hours can be spent exploring and enjoying everything that this Medieval City has to offer.
