Marsh View cottage is situated in a lovely little development very thoughtfully and tastefully designed, in my view, to represent a harbour/fishing/seaside village. It is so peaceful with the only noise coming from the seagulls flying overhead or the baaing of the sheep on the marshland backing on to the rear garden. The house itself exceeded expectations. Everything has been thought of, and more. As we stayed there over Christmas, Tony and Sue had arranged for some Christmas decorations to be put up and, like everything else in the property, were tasteful and quality items. The Christmas Hamper and Yule Log were superb, again way beyond my expectations, and the bottle of Prosecco left in the fridge went down very well on Christmas Day. The DVD collection was huge and includes up to date films and every age and gender is catered for. Board games, playing cards and some games for the Wii as well. The lovely touches like the hairdryer, robes, slippers, toiletries, soft, luxurious towels, flannels, cups, combs, shower caps etc would not have been out of place in a 5 star hotel. The decor, ornaments, pictures etc serve to remind you that you are on holiday and near the sea and beach, which is a lovely touch. The back garden is small, part shingle and part lawn, but again has everything you need. My only constructive comment would be to replace the small lawn with a fake one. We have this at home and the huge benefit at this time of year is that no mud is trodden into the house (by human or canines) and, of course, requires no cutting during the growing season. Also as Romney Marshes has an abundance of wildlife, it would have been lovely to see the bird feeders full to attract the birds. We walked to the beach everyday and after tackling the shorter route and scaling the sand dunes the first time, we decided to use the slightly longer route - still only a 20 minute amble - for our daily beach dog walks. We all loved our brief respite from the hectic world we live in and would not hesitate to recommend the Cottage to others, or to book another visit.
So comfy, peaceful, clean and relaxing. Really don't have a negative thing to say about this place. I want to go back again and again. Lovely little hamper which had lots of xmas goodies in there, all locally made. The most soft towels and warm duvet. Was so pleased we could take our little dog with us, they even provided locally made dog treats and provided things such as dog bowels which was great. The cottage was tastefully decorated for Xmas. The marsh views were beautiful and just a short walk away the most amazing beach - even in December! A small drive away is the town of Rye, again which was beautiful and tastefully decorated. Everything was perfect. It truly was a home away from home. Everything you could possibly need was provided.
Our first visit to Marsh View Cottage and it exceeded all of our expectations. Immaculately presented. The cottage is equipped with everything you need for a holiday by the beach, including a washing machine, bikes, rucksack and wind breakers, plus much much more. The welcome basket was amazing, lots of tasty treats for us humans, plus homemade treats for my four legged friend, which she loved. Furthermore, a supply of tea, coffee, bread, milk and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, made the long journey worthwhile. The welcome pack/visitor book is full of useful information, directions to the beach and takeaway leaflets, plus information about nearby attractions. Beautiful places to visit nearby, including Rye town and harbour, Dungeness Nature Reserve and Hastings old town, a walkers paradise. I can honestly say it was one of the best weeks of my life and I will be returning to explore more of Camber and it's surrounding area. Many Thanks Tony and Sue.

This cottage is small but very well equipped and spotlessly clean. We were a family of 4 with 2 dogs. It has everything you could possibly need and things you would not have imagined, a wealth of kids DVD's kept the kids entertained so we were never rushed by them. Beautiful views over the marshes, just 5 mins walk to a magnificent sandy beach. Best thing ever was the welcome hamper, for the first time ever we did not need to shop on arrival. There was everything you could possibly want laid on so the first breakfast was fully catered. We all loved this property and would go back.
Just a big thank you for the superb cottage, facilities- a -plenty, goodie basket for us and dog fab.So clean and comfy.
I would just say it doesn't matter what time of year or weather you will just enjoy.
Handy local pub and Rye fantastic with a hidden treasure, 'The Globe' which had the most amazing food, wine and dog welcome!
Looking forward to a return visit.
