The Northern Ramparts stand at the highest point of Fort Corblets. The gun silent within the perimeter wall, grassed over and now providing an uninterrupted and elevated viewing point of the English Channel.
The rooms are built on this once strategic position. The place cannot be described as conventional. The Outlook Room, with two beds, provides spectacular and panoramic views of the Channel and Corblets Bay which stretches below inviting swimmers and sunbathers in Summer months; walkers and bird watchers in the rugged Winter season.
The Outlook Room faces west, thus enjoying the evening sunsets. The other double bedroom faces east, its little patio being a perfect place to view the sunrise, or a rising full moon. In between these two sleeping areas is a very large drawing/dining room. A Steinway baby grand piano is diminished by the high wooden ceilings that offset the walls of natural stone.
The kitchen is small but well equipped and the bathroom is comfortable and light.
The Northern ramparts are unique, a world of their own to be enjoyed for their own sake and not to be compared to more conventional accommodation.
