Apple Fish, Dungeness

Exterior of Apple Fish

What’s Apple Fish like?

This stunning bungalow is right on the Kent coast. The recently-refurbished property is light and bright has a nautical theme throughout, with cute printed blinds and limited-edition artwork on the walls.

A shingle beach is just outside the front door and you can enjoy panoramic views of Folkestone and the famous White Cliffs of Dover from the lounge window. In short, it’s the perfect place to relax, enjoy bracing walks along the waterfront and take in lungfuls of fresh sea air.

How dog-friendly is Apple Fish?

Very. There’s a large, secure garden for dogs to explore with both grassy and paved areas. If your four-legged friend is anything like Ernie, they will enjoy running out to greet the miniature steam trains of the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway as they chug past. A pack of doggy treats is included in the welcome pack, too (see below).

Kitchen at Apple Fish, Dungeness

What’s the food like at Apple Fish?

This is a self-catering property but guests are provided with a handy welcome pack. It includes all the essentials like bread, milk and butter plus some lovely extras like shortbread, chocolate and dog treats. The bottle of white wine chilling in the fridge was very much appreciated, too!

The nearest pub to Apple Fish is The Pilot Inn, a ten-minute walk away. The Pilot is renowned for its fresh fish and chips and people travel from miles around to eat there so booking is essential. Dogs are not allowed inside the pub, but are welcome in the garden.
