Pobble House can sleep up to 10 people. There are two main bedrooms that each have a kingsize double bed. A third bedroom has six full sized single bed berths, four of which are up ladders. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath and a shower in the bath, the second with a shower. The main living area has distinct kitchen, dining and seating areas with a wood burning stove to keep it snug in the winter.
There are very few fences in the open landscape that characterises Dungeness but the land immediately surrounding the house is private land and the boundary of the garden area at the front is marked by wooden sleepers.
Cars may be parked outside, either on a defined parking space for one car, or on the track leading up to the house itself.

What you need to plan for or is not provided
wifi - is not automatically included as part of your stay. Dungeness does not have any broadband cables (because of its remote location and protected shingle environment). However, more recently it has benefited from access to a wireless broadband service. If you would like to use the wifi then you may purchase it through us. The minimum payment for use of wifi is £20 and this will ensure you have at least 10GB at your disposal. After this you may buy additional 'bolt ons' which cost £10 per 10GB (this is what we are charged by the provider). We have found this internet service to be reasonably reliable but please note that we cannot guarantee this service.
TV - there is a TV for the purpose of playing DVDs in the third bedroom. There is, however, no TV aerial. The TV can be carried through to the living room if you wanted to host a 'film night' but otherwise we feel that Dungeness is all about the escape!
Landline telephone - Pobble does not have a landline phone. And whilst we are on the subject of phones, you might have to open a window or move around around a bit to get a good mobile phone signal.
Music system / speakers - are not provided.
Logs - once you have used up your starter logs you will need to purchase more. Bags of logs can be bought locally.
Highchair - a 'clamp on the table' style highchair can be provided, please let us know you require this at the time of booking.
Provision of food and drink - there are no convenience stores on Dungeness. If you have a car then 5 minutes drive will take you to a small general store and 15 minutes drive will take you to New Romney (where there is a high street with shops as well as a Sainsbury's supermarket on the outskirts). Some supermarkets do make home deliveries to Dungeness, so it is worth considering booking a delivery for shortly after your arrival.
Pets - Sorry but no pets are allowed at Pobble House.
Please note that a number of the photos on this site do not show all the furnishings that are currently at Pobble House.
