“A gorgeous house right by the sea.”

We spent 2 nights at "coast guards" cottage in the February half term. We were 4 women with 6 children between us. The house catered well for a large group, with everything you may need including a blender so we made soup for lunch. The house is beautifully decorated and the beds were extremely comfy. There was plenty of room for the children to explore and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The house is right by the beach and we spent the afternoon jumping waves.... Camber Sands, down the road, is also a wonderful sandy beach. Marta, the owner was extremely helpful both prior and during our stay. We had a wonderful couple of days away. Thank you Marta for letting us stay in your holiday home.

“Great cottage”

We spent a week in the summer as two families with young children. The cottage is lovely! It's at the end of a small terrace so does indeed have fabulous views over the sea from the top floors. There's a big garden with lots of bee- and butterfly-friendly plants; and a nice big wooden deck. We really liked the slightly quirky deco and furniture; and the beds, bedding and towels were better than we have at home. It feels like it's been done for the owner to live in rather than let out.

It's at the opposite end of Camber Sands to the town - next to a military firing range! The beach here is stoney above the high tide line and sandy below; and mainly empty even in mid-summer. This suited us perfectly.

Slight negatives: the ladder to the top floor is a bit dangerous for very young children; and there wasn't much free shelf space in the living rooms for things like newspapers, toys, phones and laptops.

We have no hesitation giving a 5* rating.

“Stylish and peaceful seaside retreat”

Beautifully decorated, in a style that perfectly reflects it's location, we fell in love with this surprising spacious house, and thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away, we explored the area, enjoyed a BBQ in it's equally well thought out garden, and wished we were staying for longer than a weekend!
The kitchen was very well equipped, bathroom/shower-rooms were of a high standard too, clearly a well loved holiday home as well as a source of income!
Great location, so close to the beach and only a very short walk to Camber village. The bus stop immediately outside the cottage, going between Lydd and the historic town town of Rye came in useful too.
Coast Guards Cottage was the perfect chilled-out venue for our thoroughly girlie weekend away!
