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.
Staying at The Sergeant Major's House is to be enveloped by hundreds of years of history. This elegant and spacious four-storey Georgian building sleeps six and is set in its own grounds just inside the Western Outer Curtain Wall. As its name suggests, it was once the home of the Regimental Sergeant Majors who were garrisoned in the castle.
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.

If you love history and like to leisurely roam free to soak it up, then this is the place for you. A large and comfy house with lots of character mixed in with modern comforts. Roam the castle grounds in and out of hours and take day trips to some wonderful places nearby. I cannot recommend this place enough.
