In the 1628 “Institutes of the Laws of England” it states:
“For a man’s house is his castle, et domus sua cuique est tutissimum refugium.”
Which translated means:
“For a man’s house is his castle, and each man’s home is his safest refuge.”
And so to this amazing property.
Thorne Island is located off the Pembrokeshire coast near the entrance to Milford Haven (which is in the United Kingdom) and about quarter of a mile offshore from the sandy beach of West Angle Bay. It also boasts a single ‘home’ for sale:
The description adds:
“The accommodation is contained primarily on the ground floor level around a large courtyard and had more recently been two bars, cloakrooms, games room, dining room, kitchen, nine bedrooms, a shower room, two bathrooms, a sauna, two self-catering kitchens, a laundry and other ancillary accommodation.
Thorne Island has been uninhabited for a considerable time with some interiors in a state of disrepair and it is envisaged a new owner will wish to reconfigure the accommodation.
The fort on Thorne Island was constructed of local stone between 1852 and 1854 as an outer defence to Milford Haven, at that time a large naval base. It was designed for a garrison of 100 men. It was sold by the state in 1932 for conversion to a hotel and is Grade II* Listed as a well preserved Fort of Lord Palmerston’s Haven defences.”
And it can be yours for £550,000 or about $690,000.
