Waves 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.

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, Waves is ideally positioned to enjoy the very best this unique corner of England has to offer.

Spent half term at Waves with 2 children & our dog. Excellent accommodation which was very clean and equipped to a high standard. Welcome basket was very welcome! The location is perfect, being a couple of minutes walk to the beach. We hope to be back.
4.7 based on 3 holidaymaker reviews
Waves was very clean and maintained to a high standard. It was very well equipped with more than you would expect from a holiday rental property. Within easy walking distance from the beach and a short drive from Rye. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, which was only two nights. Would return again, next time for longer.
Great house in a wonderful beach location
Wonderful first impression upon arrival as everything looked so clean and nice. Found a lovely welcome pack of cake, milk, juice and wine which was a great start. The location in the estate is beautiful and s close to the beautiful sandy beach. The manager for the property was contactable and so helpful with any queries. The actual facilities / equipment in the house is excellent and to a very high standard. Although we didn't bring our dog this would be an amazing place to bring either family or pets (or both)
confortable et bien équipée
nous avons passé une très agréable semaine dans cette jolie maison, super équipée, idéale pour une famille avec jeunes enfants. les plages toutes proches sont magnifiques. un lieu de vacances à conseiller pour visiter une très belle région.
Activity and Interests
Welcome to 1066 Country
1066 country, the corner of East Sussex where a monumental battle famously reshaped the nation, boasts a classically beautiful English landscape infused with an epic sense of history. 1066 Country
What is 1066 Country?
A landscape of moated castles, steam railways, picturesque seaside towns and steep-cobbled streets, this is 1066 country. Scenes overlayed through the passing centuries that today survive in composite to create the archetypal image of England. An England which, hundreds of years ago, had its fate decided here in this beautiful coastal pocket of East Sussex, where an Norman invasion force successfully landed on these shores and won a famous victory, forging a new nation and forever changed the course of this countries history. In 1066 Country you’re surrounded by countryside and coastal reaches so abundant with the historical evidence of the past thousand years, it’s impossible to imagine how this country may have evolved had Harold Godwinson, later to become Harold II, the last Anglo-Saxon king, won the battle of Hastings on the 14 October 1066, a date since etched into the national consciousness. As it was, the day and the crown belonged to William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy.
1066 Country Today
Thankfully 1066 country today, ringing with the history of events born from perceived betrayals and false promises, never disappoints its guests. 1066 country offers its visitors a countless array of famous historical sites and crumbling fairytale ruins of ancient castles. Immaculate country houses set in magnificent gardens are scattered across a backdrop of rolling fields dotted with sheep and woodlands intersected with steep-banked lanes that weave their way through tiny hamlets and charming villages. To the south lies the region’s coast, encompassing the towns of Bexhill, Hastings and England's prettiest town, Rye, cradled to the west by the chalky bolster of the South Downs. This is soon to become a national park and bracing walks along gorse-lined ridges provide sweeping sea views to rival those of the raptors riding lazy circles in the thermals above.
1066 Country Coast
It’s easy to lose hours roaming around the many picturesque 1066 country towns such as Rye. However, when the hill climbing finally takes its toll the perfect antidote lies just a couple of miles away to the edge of 1066 country at the majestic Camber Sands. Here the cobbles and shingle that define the beaches of the south-east coast finally give way to a beautiful broad tract of unspoilt sandy beach and sheltering dunes. Beguiling as the 1066 country coast may be, neither the region’s beauty or its history diminishes as you journey inland. While Rye may have had its adopted son in Henry James, one of 1066 country’s most passionately patriotic literary exponents also made his home in the countryside of this special part of East Sussex, where he composed this most appropriate piece of poetry: England’s on the anvil - hear the hammers ring – Clanging from the Severn to the Tyne! Never was a blacksmith like our Norman King, England’s being hammered, hammered, hammered into line So goes the first verse of The Anvil, a poem in praise of the forging of a unified English nation under William The Conqueror, written by an author born nearly 800 years later, in 1865 – Rudyard Kipling. His family home of Bateman’s, situated here in 1066 country, just outside the delightful village of Burwash, is now owned by the National Trust and remains the essence of the pastoral idyll safely hidden at the heart of the Empire.
Countryside and Castles, 1066 Country
The perfect solution to enjoying the countryside at the heart of 1066 country, in a manner that Kipling would surely have approved, is a journey on the Kent and Sussex Steam Railway. As the country’s finest example of a light rural railway, you can even dine during your journey in restored Pullman Cars, drinking in the view through the puff of steam as the line travels through the unspoilt Rother Valley to terminate at Bodiam, the location of one of England’s famous ‘fairytale’ castles. Bodiam Castle, with its beautifully preserved and spectacularly turreted quadrangular walls, built in 1385 rising from it's broad moat, provides an image that has become the personification of an English medieval castle. Another spectacular 1066 country moated castle can be found at Herstmonceux, situated north west of Hastings. Constructed in 1441, Herstmonceux Castle became the temporary home to the Royal Greenwich Observatory shortly after the Second World War in a bid to avoid London’s increasing light pollution. The observatory moved again, this time to Cambridge in 1990, yet the legacy of its six working telescopes survives, with three still open for guided evening observations.
