Long Description:

Ian Fleming had visited White Cliff Cottage a number of times before purchasing it from his friend Noel Coward in 1951. The cottage, sited almost on the beach at St Margaret's Bay in Kent is almost unchanged externally, although the once distinctive lime green window shutter's are now yellow.

In his 007 book Moonraker (1955) part of the story is set in and around St Margaret's and nearby Kingsdown. The evil Drax had built his secret rocket installation into the cliffs further north from the cottage towards Kingsdown.

A pay and display car park can be found in the Bay from where a short stroll north along the beach will bring White Cliffs Cottage into view.

 

Location type: Ian Fleming

Movie or Book Title: Moonraker (1955)
