Thinking about vacation at home, you probably imagine your favorite sofa, Netflix movies and a lot of delicious cakes. But if you really want to have a good rest without leaving the room, why not spend the weekend in a four-story tower in Dorset?
Interested? It is a pity to disappoint you, but until the next year you will not be able to book a tower. Clavell Tower in Kimmeridge Bay is so popular that it is reserved until July 2019.
What is so special about this building that helps to attract a huge number of visitors? The Clavell Tower was built by Rev John Richards in 1830 as a lighthouse and observatory. In 1930, there was a fire, after which the building remained abandoned for a long time. Fortunately, it was restored literally by a brick and moved 25 m deep into the shoreline from its original location. It was the Clavell Tower that inspired the author of the detectives, Phyllis Dorothy James, to create the "Black Tower", and the classic of British literature, Thomas Hardy, met near this structure with his first love and later used it as an illustration to "Wessex poems ".
