Martello Tower 25 with Planning Permission for a holiday home

About this property

  • Planning Permission for Application Y18/1256/FH was granted on 20th May 2019 on the Grade II listed Martello Tower Number 25 for a change of use into a holiday let with external alterations including glazed panels and window openings together with the provision for three on-site parking spaces.

    As Martello Tower Number 25 is currently in a derelict condition internally, no Council Tax Rates are payable. No services are connected.

    Martello Tower No. 25 was built as one of a pair (with Martello Tower No.24 to the north) to protect the Marshland Sluice, one of the main sluices helping to drain Romney Marsh. Constructed during the Napoleonic Wars, conveniently situated on the beach and near to the centre of the village of Dymchurch, the tower will provide an excellent base to explore the Romney Marsh and nearby attractions such as Port Lympne Wildlife Park.
