Plovers is a 200 hundred-year-old detached Grade II listed cottage, originally a fisherman's retreat, with off road parking, situated in a quiet location close to the beach at Lydd-on-Sea. There are two en-suite bedrooms (a double and a twin bedded). Meals are served in the dining room, which overlooks a garden with well stocked bird feeders.

Guests staying on birdwatching breaks have access to the lounge, and a study which houses an extensive collection of bird books. During fine weather guests are welcome to enjoy the sunny garden or the summer-house, whilst in winter a log fire in the lounge is more the order of the day. Please note that Plovers is a non-smoking establishment.

Your hosts objective is for you to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Plovers, with its home comforts and traditional food (locally sourced when available), combined with good birdwatching (Dungeness on your doorstep) in this unique part of England. For visitors who require customised birdwatching tours across Kent and Sussex tailored specifically to their needs please telephone or e-mail for details.

Converted from a C17th working oasthouse, Hallwood Oast retains much of the rustic charm and character of it's former days. The entire building was originally used for the process of hop drying until it was sympathetically converted in 1990 to serve as the main farmhouse.

Consistently highly graded by the AA, Hallwood Oast also features in the Which? Best B & B Guide. The guest accommodation, which is non-smoking, is within the hop 'cooling' area of the oasthouse and offers a perfect B&B holiday base for visitors planning to travel to and stay in the South East of England.
