    We stayed here as 3 adults and 1 baby and overall we found the cottage very good and it met our needs for our stay perfectly. The location is excellent, just a short walk to the dunes and it meant that we could carry our baby to the beach and didn't have to worry about pushchairs / baby seats getting dirty and sandy (we saw many other parents struggling!). The property is generally in very good condition and is well decorated throughout and is made to feel very homely with some nice little decorations to add to the feel. It is well equipped and the kitchen had basically everything we could hope for in a holiday rental to help make your stay easier, including a good table and baby seat. The bedrooms were good size and comfortable for us, even with a cot (provided) in the room there was plenty of space. The bathroom was a good size and the shower was excellent! There were a few minor things that we didn't like; The toilet was "generous" and always left a present behind after every flush. There was no mattress for the baby cot. Given that we came from abroad this was a issue for us and we had to buy one specifically for our stay. The floor boards were squeaky, could be an issue if you have young kids in bed. The TV volume would go up and down all the time. It was worse on TV channels with poorly quality. The gardens front and rear were fully pebbled. This made it not a nice and welcoming place to sit outside The internet was a bit slow, but I assume this is an issue with Camber in general being such a small rural place, so maybe I'm being a bit harsh here! The pictures are a good representation of the property although some suggested that it actually is better than the photos! And I would not hesitate to stay again if we decide to come back to Camber.

The property

This well-presented cottage is situated in the village of Camber, close to the safe, sandy beach that this area is renowned for.

Superbly located, this welcoming cottage is quietly tucked away, with only pedestrian access to this comfortable Camber cottage.

Well-equipped and nicely appointed, this coastal cottage in Camber provides spacious, stylish accommodation, perfect for couples and families looking to stay within walking distance of shops, pubs serving great food, a popular restaurant and the beach, with its seven miles of sand and dunes, which give this lovely cottage its name!

The light and airy kitchen, with its dining area, is the ideal place to gather together and make plans for the days ahead as you enjoy a delicious meal.

Guests can also enjoy dining alfresco in the pleasant, pebble garden as the sun goes down, whilst listening to the gulls as they make their way home, plus with both front and rear gardens being fully-enclosed, parents can also relax whilst children play in safety in the gardens.

Why not pack a picnic in the picnic hamper provided and have lunch on the beach?

Watersports enthusiasts are spoilt for choice when staying at this Camber cottage, with sand yachts, windsurfing, sailing and hang-gliding all on offer within a mile, and for those less energetic, there are two golf courses and several fishing spots to be enjoyed.

The medieval town of Rye is just a short drive away, where a day of exploring cobbled streets with antiques shops is a real must for visitors.

Sample Sussex cream teas at one of the many tea rooms, browse the quaint little shops, museums or art galleries, which makes this one of the most visited towns in Sussex.

About the location

CAMBER

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!
