Britain's most popular holiday home – and it's booked up until 2025 | The Sun

BRITIAN'S most popular holiday home is already booked for at least the next two years, meaning anyone hoping to stay there is in for a long wait.

Clavell Tower in Wareham, Dorset is a four storey circular tower that stands high on the cliff overlooking Kimmeridge Bay on the south coast.

It was built in 1830 and previously housed famous writers including PD James and Thomas Hardy.

The tower is managed by the Landmark Trust, a charity that saves historic buildings "in danger of being lost forever".

They restore the buildings before offering them a new future by making them available for self-catering holidays.

The trust salvaged the tower in 2002 after it was left close to the edge of a crumbling cliff.

It was dismantled and resurrected further back from the cliff’s edge, carefully positioned to capture as many of its original sight lines within the landscape as possible.

A four night stay in the tower will set you back £580, with two people able to stay in the one available double bed.

The bedroom, on the third storey, has a door onto a balcony that circles the whole building and the seating area on the top floor offers a great view of the sea.

The South West Coastal Path runs along past its door and guests have a ten-minute walk from the car park to the tower.

It has an oven and an electric hob, a gas fire and a shower and dogs are permitted to stay too.

Guests are required to walk for ten minutes from the car park in order to reach the tower.

However, the room is booked up until 2025, making it arguably the most desired holiday home in the country.

The tower is well-known for being popular and the trust has urged anyone hoping to stay there to book as soon as new dates become available.

In previous years, the slots for entire six-moth periods have sold out within 300 seconds of going online.

A spokesman for the Landmark Trust previously said: "The location is stunning – being able to stare out at the sea while lying in bed is quite spectacular.

"People do have to be really organised and think far ahead to have a holiday there, but because it's so popular people know they have to be prepared.

"As soon as we release new dates they get booked really quickly. I would advise people to ring up within the first hour or two of the dates being released."

Recent guests gave the tower five stars, with one saying: "An amazing stay in an amazing location.

"We'd wanted to stay here for years and it did not disappoint. There can't be any better views anywhere in the country."

A second wrote: "Such an amazing and unique place! Beautifully kept. Lovely walks along the coast."

Another added: "We waited four years to get here.

"Well worth the wait though. Perfect location, great facilities inside, very comfortable."
