About the property

Cottage, Camber Sands, Nr. Rye, East Sussex, England - Peaceful, Location Just Metres From The Beach

No. 5 is a quiet place set in relative wilderness but within easy reach of local amenities and bus routes. Camber Sands is less than a mile away and the beautiful cinque port town of Rye is a 5 mile walk or short drive away. The cottage is ideally suited to family groups with children or a maximum of six adults and is just yards from Broomhill Sands which has a shingle beach at high tide and clean sand and shallow water at low tide. The cottage itself has been recently refurbished and renovated to provide comfortable accomodation, with all the modern facilities you'd expect. It has a raised deck to the back looking over the military ranges to Dungeness where you will be able to see many rabbits, bird and animal life. To the front of the cottage is a large garden, with table and chairs, Chimenea and BBQ facilities. No. 5 also has a garage where you can store all your water sports equipment safely. Inside the property is ample living space with 3-4 bedrooms (4th bedroom/cinema room or den for the kids). The cottage has WiFi, DVDs and many fun board games. Nearby is the Kitesurf Centre where you can learn all kinds of water sports and the off road cycle path which runs from Rye to Lydd. There are of course many coastal and inland walks right from the door. A short drive away are many renowned Golf Courses and The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway. Pets accepted upon request, (extra cleaning charge of £30 per week.)

About nicky gittins

Both my husband and I have been coming to the Camber and Rye area for many years, in my husbands case since he was an art student many years ago. We always took our children down to the beach here when they were very little, so when we had the opportunity of completely renovating a beautiful Victorian coastguard cottage right on the beach we naturally jumped at the chance.

nicky gittins purchased this cottage in 2012

Why nicky gittins chose Kent

We love the vastness of the sky and the wildness of this particular end of the beach. It is generally very quiet, sometimes there are only rabbits and birds about. It really is our bolt hole, somewhere to escape from it all and relax.

What makes this cottage unique

The nature and the peacefulness of the area are obvious benefits of being here, We love the fact that you can do everything straight from the door, swimming, fishing, beach combing, cycling, walking. Our children love being here and have started to learn various water sports too.

Lovely cottage, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Had such a lovely stay here. The location is great but it is a bit remote so a car is useful. The beach is on the doorstep and it's vast and perfect for dog walking, running etc. The cottage itself is super stylish and quirky and has all you'd need for a great stay (plus a welcoming bottle of wine; a very much appreciated touch!). Loads of really great places to eat a short drive away in Rye or nearby - highly recommend The Horse and Cart in Peasmarsh; amazing food and service. Dungeness is a (shingle-y) stones throw away and is incredible. We had such a great stay here - Nicky was super helpful before and during our trip without being intrusive; this is a lovely place to stay.

Perfect cottage, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this lovely cottage in a quirky location. The cottage has everything you need,has been planned perfectly and stylishly. From a perfect spot to sit to catch every moment of sun outside to 3 televisions including one larges screen for film nights. We enjoyed walks to Rye where you can get great food, Dungeness and just pottering on the beach next to the house. In warmer weather it would be amazing but we enjoyed using the log burners and fortunately the weather was kind if cold.

Thank you for a great time!

The perfect cottage...

  • 5 of 5

I could easily write about 10 pages of how nice this property is! Full of character, clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and really retaining a lovely cosy feel. Everything there you could possibly need, including dvd's and games. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush! You get a real sense that the owners love and enjoy their own property and want you to as well. Nicky the owner was easily contactable and sent lots of helpful messages before our stay. We absolutely loved our stay here and I'll definitely be back. Incidentally one of the best showers I've ever used and the comfiest bed! Highly recommend x

What A Treat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short break here in early July...the owner Nicky is on hand from the minute you book your trip to answer any questions and provide lots of useful info about the house and surrounding area. The location is stunning, set just off of the coast road with a gorgeous, wide sandy beach less than a minutes walk away. The house itself surpassed our expectations... beautifully, tastefully decorated with bags of room, it was spotlessly clean and came equipped with everything we could have ever needed to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as it could've possibly been (and incidentally, no noise at all from the adjacent MoD range, even on the days the flags were up). So pleased I found this place, loved it and will definitely be back!

Lovely, very relaxing, comfortable & welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing family holiday just a stones throw from the beach. The house was beautifully decorated, comfortable & well appointed. Every detail had been considered. We're looking forward to going back.
