    “The house was very clean, tidy, comfortable and had all that we needed to help us enjoy our weeks stay.”

    The single beds are a tad narrow for adults though perfect for children.The garden was a small space, however we found that we hardly spent any time in the garden. ...

    The single beds are a tad narrow for adults though perfect for children.The garden was a small space, however we found that we hardly spent any time in the garden. The house was around the corner from a short cut through that took you directly to the dunes and a short walk to the local dog friendly pub "The Owl". Lovely food and pub; the staff friendly & helpful. The house is a great base, not only for visiting Camber Sands and it's amazing beach it is also perfect for exploring the surrounding area. Beautiful Rye is a short drive and other places of interest are also fairly easy to get to and generally 25 - 45 mins by car. We visited several places while we were here including Battle & Bodiam Castle & we took the light train from Hythe to Dungeness. None of us a train spotter but we all enjoyed it non-the-less. Had we realised how close we were to a good water sports venue we would have booked a SUP course in advanced. The property would benefit from having wi-fi as its become the norm to offer this facility in holiday lets/rentals. We all had a great time & would definitely recommend visiting this part of the world.

The property

This fabulous terraced cottage sits within a popular complex, itself a mixture of residential and holiday homes all created in the American New England style with weatherboards, white picket fences and lots of paths and walkways, all only a short walk from a long sandy beach, in the village of Camber, Sussex.

This lovely home is ideal for couples, friends or families looking to stay somewhere stylish and comfortable with a warm sense of welcome.

The two bedrooms offer flexible sleeping accommodation as one has a zip and link bed, so can be singles or a double, whichever is best for your holiday requirements.

The open plan living area allows for everyone to get together and set out an agenda while either relaxing into the sumptuous seating or pouring over maps and guides around the table, and with so much to see and do along this part of the south coast you really will have to plan your days!

The fully enclosed courtyard garden makes for the perfect spot to chill out with a good book and long, cool drink while the others in your party prepare for the evening, maybe a barbecue where the chef can show off their skills with some fresh locally bought fish, or why not wander the short distance to the Gallivant restaurant if you want to celebrate a special event.

This is the final stretch of the Sussex coast before it changes into Kent and all along there are glorious, golden sands.

Due to the winds and tides this area is renowned for being a place where watersport enthusiasts make their own, with paddle boarding, sand surfing and hang gliding popular all year round.

On terra firma you will find numerous foot and cycle paths and three separate nature reserves within the area.

A super cottage for exploring this lovely part of the country.

About the location


Rye 4 miles; Dungeness 10 miles; Dymchurch 13 miles; Hastings 15 miles.

Camber is situated on the Sussex coast between Rye and Lydd. This part of the coastline is known for its beautiful sandy beaches and safe bathing, an ideal family holiday location. When the sea goes out there is up to half a mile of sand before you can dip a toe in the water, even when the tide is in, children can paddle safely due to the gradients of the sands. The sand dunes that protect this area are havens for picnics, giving shelter and privacy. Camber is a hot spot for watersports enthusiasts, the beaches running from here to Jury’s Gap are perfect for all forms of sea and watersports, including windsurfing and sailing, hang-gliding and sand yachting, to name but a few! Two well established centres offer tuition for those taking their first plunge, and they also have equipment and wetsuits available for hire for those whose taste for the sea and its exhilarating air have already taken hold, and the car parking is free! Camber is less well known than many other towns which runs along this coastline, but still has a lot to offer visitors. Excellent food is served by the two pubs which are both close to the beach, as well as a hotel with restaurant offering a more formal dining experience. Shops are more limited in Camber, but Rye, only four miles away, offers visitors a complete range from quaint and quirky to everyday essentials, along with its museums, art galleries, tea rooms and even a castle! Relaxing and rejuvenating, Camber offers a holiday that brings out the days of sand castles and swimming in the sea before enjoying a fish and chip supper at the end of another day to remember!
