About Alexandra W

Having grown up by the sea, Mrs W wanted to create a beach-side haven to enjoy weekend getaways and family holidays. Seadrift was the name of her family home in Cornwall and is now the name of this sea side retreat.

Alexandra W purchased this house in 2013

Why Alexandra W chose Camber

Living in Tunbridge Wells, Mrs W wanted a seaside retreat that was close enough for short breaks and somewhere to take the grandchildren for holidays. Camber Sands, with its stunning sandy beach and the town of Rye close by, was the ideal location. The property is managed by her daughter Alex.

What makes this house unique

At Seadrift the beach is on your doorstep without the noise, hustle and bustle of holidaymakers at your front door. Set on a private road with parking and secure gates, you have the privacy of your own home and the convenience of the beach just a few minutes walk away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had an amazingly relaxed weekend – thank you! Highlights: the hammock, children playing safely and freely in the garden, early morning and early evening walks on the beach, The Gallivant, outdoor shower for sandy feet! Will definitely be back soon!”

“A great week and a lovely seaside escape from London. We loved the fact that we could cook and that so many utensils etc were provided to do so. Lots of walks along the beach and delicious meals. It’s been a wonderful stay and we couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you!”

“We’ve had a lovely stay at Seadrift – the house is really comfortable and it’s been great being so close to the lovely, sandy beach. Useful being able to leave the keys in the ‘box’, so we didn’t need to have any valuables on the beach. Thanks for a lovely holiday. We would love to stay here again some time.”

Camber sands "gem"

  • 5 of 5

The house on stilts has everything you and your family will need for a great seaside break. Alex has thought of everything. On arrival there is parking directly outside for four vehicles.(a premium in camber during high season) The house is enclosed by a fenced garden so totally private and safe for young children. On entering the house a fabulous utility room and room to take off sandy boots/coats etc.

The first floor comprises of three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main master bed has an ensuite.The house keeper kindly left each of our girls a packet of chocolate buttons on their beds and a fudge cake in the kitchen. A lovely touch, thank you!All bedding and towels are immaculate, as is the cleanliness of the whole house.

The top floor has a fully fitted kitchen, well equipped with everything you require. There is a gorgeous picture window with sea views. Plenty of comfortable couches, sky tv. You will not be disappointed when booking this property. Constant hot water/heating, all perfectly timed.

The beach is a 2 min stroll down the sandy lane, perfect for kite flying and hide and seek in the sand dunes!

All in all a perfect house in a perfect location!!!

We will definitely book again!!

Thank you x

Special interest holidays:

Windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing are available at the local water sports centre.


Pure beach heaven, Camber Sands is a popular 7 mile sandy beach with picturesque dunes and interesting wildlife. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk from the property.


Rye train station is approx 3 miles from Camber.

Lydd airport is approx 6 miles from Camber.

London Gatwick airport is approx 45 miles from Camber.

A car is recommended for short day trips to Rye, but not essential if you are able to arrange transport to and from the property.

A bus stop is located at the end of the road, which goes to Rye station.


The village of Camber is a few minutes walk from the property and the nearest town, Rye, is a 10 minute drive (3 miles away). There are small cafes close to the beach, which is a few minutes walk from the property. The Gallivant Hotel and Beach Bistro restaurant is a 15-20 walk from the property or in a car, 5 minutes to drive.

Further Details:

The small village of Camber is very close to the beach, with a selection of small convenience shops. There are also a number of beach side cafes and the wonderful Beach Bistro restaurant at The Gallivant Hotel, a short walk from the beach.

The closest town is Rye, which is a few miles away. A picturesque market town with cobbled streets housing antique shops, gift shops, art galleries, book shops and potteries. Delightful tea shops serve delicious home made cakes and scones, splendid old inns serve locally brewed real ale and there are a wide variety of fine restaurants to suit every taste and pocket.

We recommend the £16 set lunch menu at “The George” in Rye and fantastic food at “Hayden’s” for a hearty salad or cream tea on their terrace. “The Green Owl” is a sociable, relaxed pub down the road, with great service.
