Sea Purse

St Margaret's Bay

Sea Purse possesses possibly the most stunning location of any house on the South Coast - every visitor testifies to that. Sitting directly beneath the White Cliffs of Dover and a balcony’s width from the beach, this historically important house was previously leased by Noel Coward in the 1950s, with Ian Fleming leasing the adjacent house. Read James Bond’s Moonraker novel and it’s clear Fleming drew inspiration from this beautiful location. Coward’s friends - Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, and Evelyn Waugh amongst 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 superb beach house is located at the far end of St Margaret’s Bay under the White Cliffs. It's just a few footsteps to the beach. Sea Purse was completely renovated in 2022 and is beautifully decorated throughout with great care and consideration given to the decor and furnishings to reflect its coastal position. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, this property sleeps 8 and is an ideal family home or for guests looking to stay in unique accommodation.

"Was excited to visit Dover as the accommodation looked incredible but we couldn't be prepared for what we found. The home sits directly on the sea and the views are absolutely breath taking. I can't imagine there is many homes in the country, or even the world, that take you this close to the elements whilst being surrounded by the comfort of a stunning home. We will 100% be going back!"

"This place is an absolute delight. Will definitely recommend if you want a very beautiful view, luxury feel and wonderful hosts who checks in via mails and responds to you so quick. We absolutely felt right at home and enjoyed every bit of our stay. We will definitely be visiting soon. We might just make it a yearly vacation spot. Thank you so much for the hospitality.
