Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Camber Sands - Coastguards Beach House
Built In This Secluded Spot, To Help Guard Against Smuggling And Invasion
Wake in comfort to the sound of the sea, explore the misty brooding Romney Marsh, then warm up in the many atmospheric pubs with intriguing histories, resident ghouls, roaring fireplaces, cracking ales and tasty pub grub, walk along our pebbled beach, look out across the shimmering blue sea and you’ll feel like you’ve discovered another world..
Stay at Coastguard's Beach House and discover a landscape full of myth’s and legends, surrounded by the haunting loneliness of Romney Mash.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We booked a last minute, much needed break through Beside the sea holidays and had a delightful week at Coastguards Beach House at Jury’s Gap. The cottage was delightfully furnished and decorated – and very comfortable. It was also spotlessly clean. The wood burning stove was a great advantage the first evening as we arrived in very cold and windy weather.
We were initially concerned about the proximity of the firing range and some construction work being carried out next to the cottages by the environment agency but that didn’t really affect our enjoyment or detract from the wonderful walks along an almost deserted beach. Our drive to Dungeness was a revelation and we much enjoyed our trips to Rye, Winchelsea – and a lovely lunch at Chapel Down. Salts Farm Shop was also a great find. The location and the cottage itself made for a very enjoyable break.
