Guestbook comments from the owner
"My partner and I, 2 young children and a teenager stayed for an extended weekend. The house was in a quiet close and was very spacious. Lots of attention to detail and everything was geared towards making our stay as pleasant as possible. The beach was only 5 minutes away (and the kids loved it). We don't drive, but the bus stop was 5 minutes away for a short ride into Rye. We only stayed for a few days but it seemed like a week. Definitely recommend."

lovely , home from home. excellent.
Stayed for three nights over the early May bank holiday with my partner, her mother and brother. We all totally loved it. The house itself has to be the most equipped holiday home I've stayed in. From the welcome pack left on the table to the abundance of complimentary toiletries, the kitchen equipment and the Bluetooth music system in the garden room and the amount of games available incase it rained (which it didn't), our break was very enjoyable.(and the beds were so comfortable). Also knowing that the pontins site was available to use for the small price of a day pass from their reception, which was also the case for the park resort site further down the road, you could entertain a family with holiday park facilities with the knowledge you were going back to the Yardarm instead of a chalet or caravan. We also found the Yardarm a nice and quiet place to stay yet a brief walk from a few lovely places to eat and have a drink and only a few minutes drive from Rye which is a great place to mooch round. Hastings was easier and quicker to get to than anticipated too. We had great fun. All in all we would definitely recommend the Yardarm to other family and friends and we all said that we would not rule out going back for another stay. Janice, no need to change anything. Thumbs up.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location
Stayed in this lovely property for just two days over Easter. It was everything we wanted and more. Went as a group of 2 couples looking for a base from which to explore the area. Firstly the owner Janice is so helpful even before we left and absolutely nothing is left to chance. The house is clean and modern and very well equipped. I cannot think of anything that you could need that wasn't there. Just a short stroll from Camber Sands which are stunning. Perfect location to explore many other interesting areas and there is plenty of information provided so you don't miss a thing. We are all walkers and found this a lovely area to walk in. Unfortunately we were only there for two nights but we will definitely return.
Home from home
Had a wonderful weekend in this lovely home. Could not have felt more welcome or comfortable. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is supplied. All the beds are very comfortable and we all slept well. Having so many toilets is always a bonus. Very clean and all furnishings and decor in good order. Would highly recommend if its for a family, friends or couples looking to get away from it all. Personally I couldn't find anything to fault, which is unusual for me.
The local area is beautiful and a bracing walk on the beach sets you up well for the day ahead. Some fantastic restaurants in Rye. The owner has even left information about local tourist spots and restaurants to visit.
From the Owner
“We have very fond memories of happy days spent with our children on Camber Beach - they are now grown up but both love to spend time at the Yardarm! Having used the house as our second home since 2007 we have been able to put in place all of the 'home comforts' that you would expect and are constantly updating and adding extras! We have successfully rented our home as a holiday let since 2012 and we hope it will be enjoyed by potential guests who find us through Owners Direct and HomeAway. All of the feedback received has been very positive - we feel we have a good team to assist us in making your stay perfect!”
