About Mrs L Simmonds

We are young professionals based in London and looking to improve our quality of life by spending time at the seaside during weekends. We love being in the house with family and friends.

Mrs L Simmonds purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mrs L Simmonds chose East Sussex

We have holidayed in Camber many times. The locals are friendly, the beach is wonderful and it is close to home! There are some great restaurants and we love food!

The pace is slow, it's quiet and we find it a very tranquil place to be.

The best kept secret of the area is the fact that the weather is fantastic in Autumn and Spring!

The cottage is moments from the beach, close enough to walk to bars/pubs/restaurants and easy to find..... It is located on an unmade road off the main strip and did I mention, moments from the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

When we bought the house it was a two bedroom bungalow which was falling apart. We fell in love with it and its location and with some vision we have renovated it into a 4 bedroom cottage. For us its all about being with family and friends making wonderful memories. We wanted to provide warm, comfy, modern open pan living to ensure visitors have simply an unforgettable time.

Camber is in its own time warp! Although it is being dragged into the current era! There is a mix of old traditional property and new and improved. The pubs and restaurants are comfy and welcoming. Absolutely fantastic!

Rye is just outside of Camber and it is a magical place, full of cobbled streets, eateries, pubs (with roaring fires) and shops! All independent shops of course no multiples, there is lots to do in the surrounding areas too.

Perfect place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is huge and the living/dining/kitchen area is like the finished properties in Grand Designs. However, regardless of this space, the tasteful furnishing gives the cottage a cosy, welcoming feel. The beds are comfortable, with lovely soft sheets. The showers are fast and hot. The house is clean and has all the crockery, cutlery and white goods that you could need. The Tides would be a great place for a large group of friends or a family get together. The weather was grim when I was there and after a long walk on the beach it was lovely to come "home" to the warm, cosy and very glamorous Tides.

Lovely house and great location right by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a great weekend at The Tides with friends. Plenty of space for nine of us with all the facilities you need. Ideal location - just a short stroll from the beautiful, sandy beach. Would definitely go again.

An excellent house only a short walk from a stunning beach - a perfect way to see in the new year

  • 4 of 5

The Tides is a great house, designed perfectly with open plan living in mind. The house is very well equipped and was a fabulous place for two families to come together to celebrate New Year. Our party of nine, consisting of five children aged four to ten had a wonderful time relaxing in the house and exploring the local area. Beach walks every morning were followed by some gorgeous food - we recommend The Gallivant in Camber and the Standard Inn in Rye. There are a couple of shops very close to the house and it really does only take a couple of minutes to walk to one of the most stunning beaches you will find! We'd love to return!

Christmas with the family 2016.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very much as described in the listing. We were delighted to find the place nice and warm on our arrival and with a wonderfully decorated Christmas tree flashing away in the conservatory. The children were in awe.

There were a few items of damage arround the place about which I felt it necessary to inform the owner by email. Louise responded promptly, as she had done to my previous questions. The issues were duly recorded and we happily got on with our Christmas. During our third day I noted that 4 of the ceiling down lighter bulbs were out which in itself was not a problem until that evening, when the last remaining bulb in the upstairs bathroom failed. I contacted Suzanne (the first point of contact for problems) and she kindly arranged for a set of six replacement bulbs to be delivered to the house on Christmas eve morning. From then on everything went well.

On Christmas day we cooked a very large dinner for seven in the well equipped kitchen and on boxing day we enjoyed strolling along the beach. On the last day the three grandparents walked to Rye and back enjoying the bustle of the old streets and the architecture of Rye.

All told, the whole family, 3 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children, all had a very memorable Christmas at The Tides. We will certainly consider renting The Tides again and would also recommend it to others without hesitation.
