Dover Castle has been called the 'key to England', which is no surprise given its position as the nation's front door. Crack the lock here and you're in - something no hostile power has ever managed, thank goodness.

Standing imperiously on top of the famous white cliffs, Dover Castle has been occupied since at least Roman times and is the undisputed master of reinvention.

Peverell's Tower was added by Henry III in the 13th century as an extra buttress of defence. At one time a prison, today it sleeps two in liberating comfort.  It has spectacular views - you can see France on a clear day.

Wander around the vast site at your leisure and be the first in the queue to tour the re-presented Great Tower, where Henry II held court in sumptuous style. The new 'Operation Dynamo: Rescue from Dunkirk' exhibition tells the story of Britain's Finest Hour. Churchill called it a miracle and nowhere do his words resonate more than here in these cramped secret tunnels.


All of our cottages are fully furnished and equipped with TVs, DVD players, CD/ DAB Radio music system, telephone for emergency and incoming calls, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave, oven and hob, washerdryer, dishwasher. Linen and towels are provided.

We have just returned from a 4 day break at Peverell’s Tower. It was a marvellous experience and we found the tower to be extremely pleasant and comfortable, old surroundings with every modern comfort. It was absolutely fantastic staying at Dover Castle. It was our second holiday there, but certainly not the last.

Spent a week at Peverells Tower - awesome! To walk around Dover Castle when everyone has left is out of this world. Staff so helpful and enthusiastic. To stay in Peverells Tower is to live in a tower built by Normans and presumably lived in by Normans – unbelievable! English Heritage thought of everything for the enjoyment of guests. Look forward to booking for next year.

Just returned from a 4 night break. We had a fantastic time, it was really special staying in such a unique setting. Thanks to Christine for preparing the Tower so well - the flowers were a lovely touch.
