Imagine a sea fort full of history, the sound of seagulls and crashing waves, views of yachts and a sunset engulfed by the sea. Imagine a family party, a wedding reception or an incentive weekend in a unique and impressive venue a mile off the coast. This  is that place.

Originally designed to protect against a French invasion, this unique property has undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment and now offers an exclusive and private retreat for events.  This venue is the talk of the town and anyone attending an event here can’t fail to be delighted and surprised at the pure drama of its unique setting.  The sympathetic refurbishment has kept many of the original features such as the port hole windows, the vaulted ceilings and the gun emplacements, and as a result guests will be treated to three floors of both history and luxury.

The conversion is impressive with a dedicated Champagne bar, a function room with incredible views, a library, a gym, rooftop sun-decks, a sauna, a huge open-air hot tub and even a light-house.  Despite its situation it really does provide a space for every type of occasion, even a wedding ceremony, and with plenty to keep guests occupied outside of any necessary business meetings or formal dining.  Fish for your dinner, play poker in the card room or enjoy the sauna  – there aren’t many saunas with such a close-up view of the sea.

In keeping with its private nature the fort offers individually designed en suite bedrooms so your guests can party into the night.  There are certainly no neighbours here!

Guests access the fort by boat making it effectively a private island, and the sea provides endless  opportunities for some fun, water related activities.    There’s no other venue like it – for a lasting impression, this is the place.

We like:

  • arriving by sea
  • fishing from a porthole
  • watching the sunset around the fire-pit
