Dramatically set atop the cliff at Kimmeridge Bay, circular Clavell Tower has an appearance like no other, overlooking one of the most picturesque of Dorset's coves.

The famed Jurassic Coastline was the first area in England to be declared as a natural World Heritage Site, so it seems apt that this 19th Century Grade II listed folly carves a bold  and solitary figure here along the coastal path.  The tower was built in 1830 as an observatory, folly and navigation mark, explaining its own privileged and elevated setting, and in 2002 work began to dismantle and rebuild the tower away from the eroded cliff edge, creating the Landmark Trust restoration it is today for people to enjoy.

Moving inside the tower via cantilevered steps to a raised ground floor, accommodation is spread across four floors. Each circular room enjoys its own separate level, including a lower ground floor bathroom and ground level reception area complete with a well-equipped kitchen. The double bedroom is located on the first floor of the tower and takes advantage of those views over the scenic surroundings. A door also leads onto a balcony that encircles the tower, this time with panoramic views.

As you can imagine the coastal walks along the South West Coastal Path are a highlight of any stay here, you may also bring one four-legged friend who will equally appreciate the scenic walking routes available, using the stunning Clavell Tower as your base.
