Sedimentary rock from Jurassic Period

The site is a stretch of land  made up  of sedimentary rock from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods – the time of dinosaurs.

In keeping with the site topography, the lodges will be constructed from a combination of pre-patinated copper and Portland stone from a nearby quarry.

Residences

Three split-level residences will be bracketed by two single story residences. Each will have two bedrooms, open-plan living and dining area that opens onto patios overlooking the English Channel.
And stipulated by the English Heritage is the requirement to be separated by rugged Portland stone walls to ‘bed’ the development into the rocky setting.

 

Completion

The project is expected to complete in March 2017.   It is hoped the £2 million development will help to boost tourism throughout the year.
