The bright and airy second bedroom is equipped with two comfy single beds with views towards the sand dunes, just a very short stroll walk away.

The third bedroom is furnished with a cosy single bed and storage unit, perfect for a child or a single adult.

The family bathroom with white suite completes the upstairs.

Whether you’re looking to build sand castles with your children or help them explore fascinating rock pools, Camber Sands offers the country’s most spectacular sandy beach and paddling-friendly waters right on the doorstep of Kittiwake Cottage.

Holidays with young children and toddlers means lots of bulky luggage, high chair, travel cot etc, so to ease the load Kittiwake Cottage has been specially equipped with baby friendly features such as a high chair, stair gate, travel cot and listening monitor to help lighten the load when taking the little ones on holiday with you.

Dogs love a big sandy beach – space to run around, sand dunes to explore, water to splash in, interesting smells to discover and plenty of other dogs to play with. So when you bring your four-legged friend to Kittiwake Cottage, it’s good to know that the incredible dog friendly Camber Sands beach is right on your doorstep. They will be in hound heaven!

Our dog friendly Camber Sands holiday cottage, Kittiwake Cottage here at White Sand is the perfect place to bring your faithful furry companion. Camber’s huge sandy beach on your doorstep, lots of great places to go for walks and even dog friendly pubs so that you can both enjoy a relaxing drink after a day of sniffing about on the dunes!

Kittiwake Cottage is perfectly located on the East Sussex/Kent border allowing you to explore two of England’s loveliest and most historic counties, East Sussex’s 1066 Country and Kent’s Garden of England. Being only one and a half hours from London you can also make the most of what the capital has to offer, take in a show in the West End, shop in Oxford Street or visit the many iconic sites.

The Light House is just a short walk from Camber Sands. This wide, dune enclosed sandy beach is over 2 miles long and is the perfect spot in which to breathe in the exhilarating sea air. The village and dunes were once the haunt of smugglers, whose ill-gotten gains accounted for the prosperity of neighbouring Rye.

The property offers easy access to the UK's finest beach, ideal for flying kites, making sand castles and spending relaxing family time. This wide open space is popular with windsurfers, bathers and horse riders and there is a network of footpaths and cycle routes criss-crossing the nearby wildlife reservation.

Nearby Rye has a rich and colourful history. Its cobbled streets, enchanting church and beautifully preserved buildings are proof of the towns’ importance as a medieval Cinque Port.

Rye played an important part in the defence of the realm. Local fortifications like Camber Castle are now popular tourist attractions. Perched on a hill overlooking the marshes, Rye is the perfect place to explore, shop and eat out. Its charming ancient streets are filled with a great selection of independent retailers, restaurants, pubs and a weekly market.

With the blend of tradition and culture in Rye and the beauty and tranquillity of Camber Sands, Kittiwake Cottage is ideally positioned to enjoy the very best this unique corner of England has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kittiwake beach house was brilliant. Seriously, everything was there, nice and warm. Ladies just stocking fridge as I arrived, really welcoming. Couple of issues (bathroom radiator not working), and I rang the contact number and a guy was out within half an hour - courteous, helpful and sorted problem. Comfy bed - Plenty of linen. I didn't even need to use the pillow I brought with me, as the ones in the house were great. And that is high praise coming from me :-) Beach fantastic for us and the dog. Would definitely book again. Kathryn

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(6 traveller reviews)


Kittiwake cottage was modern, clean and well presented.

  • 5 of 5

Well organised booking and payment system. Kittiwake cottage was well situated and a very comfortable and welcoming property for us and 2 dogs! Rooms very clean and beds very comfortable in all rooms. Shingle back garden could do with a bit of a weed, but garden furniture available, we had beautiful weather so made use of it.

Surrounding area provides plenty to do and see without spending hours travelling. We took the bus in to Rye as parking is difficult there, would recommend this as only 10-15 minute journey.

If you like the beach, Camber Sands cannot be beaten, miles of sand, dunes and dog friendly sections and only a 5 minute walk from the cottage.

Urlaub in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche mit unserem beiden Kindern und unserem Hund Rudi. Schon bei Ankunft wurden wir mit einem leckeren Kuchen und einer Flasche als Gastgeschenk überrascht. Das Haus lässt keine Wünsche übrig, denn man findet wirklich alles vor.

Die Küche war bestens eingerichtet mit vielen kleinen technischen Geräten. Die drei Bäder und die drei Schlafzimmer sind sehr angenehm und strahlen eine Gastfreundschaft aus.

Auch für die Kinder gab es ausreichend Technik (eine Wii mit vielen Spielen), sowie ein DVD Player, so dass man selbst bei regnerischen Tagen die Kinder unterhalten konnte.

Die Nähe zum Strand war optimal. Hier konnten wir zur jetzigen Jahreszeit auch mit unserem Hund ausgiebige Wanderungen vollziehen. Im Sommer gibt es ausreichend Möglichkeiten mit Hunden zu laufen.

Wir werden sicherlich das Haus und die Gegend weiterempfehlen können.

Ein gelungener Urlaub bei perfekten Gastgebern!!

  • 5 of 5

Bei Kittiwake Cottage handelt es sich um ein absolut empfehlenswertes Haus, welches die Bewertung "Luxus" allemal verdient!!

Ergänzt wird dieses positive Urteil durch die perfekten Gastgeber Richard und Sophie, die uns schon den Urlaubsstart in Camber mit einer netten Überraschung buchstäblich versüssten.

Modern und funktional eingerichtet lässt es keine Wünsche offen und hat uns während unseres Urlaubs als perfekte Basis gedient.

Wir können Kittiwake Cottage definitiv nur empfehlen und werden selber gerne wieder kommen!!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday evening, everything was perfect! Extremely clean and tidy, a home from home. Cottage is beautifully decorated and well equipped to a high standard. Location was great, literally a 5 minute walk to the beach which kids and dog enjoyed. Rye is a short drive away. Richard and Sophie were wonderful managers who introduced themselves and were on hand if needed. We will definitely be recommending the cottage and company to friends and family and hope to return for another weekend later in the year.
