Guestbook comments from the manager

we had a great holiday at Half Moon Cottage. The cottage is really beautiful and cosy and it was one of the best holiday homes we ever booked. And as you most obviously know we had wonderful weather during the two weeks we spent in Camber. It proved the common german prejudice about the english weather completely wrong.

As we spent a lot of time at the sunny and sandy beach the availability of a washing machine at Half Moon turned out very helpful. I think this is worth to mention on your webpage as this might be interesting to know especially for families with children.

Finally it was all in all a marvellous holiday with all the interesting and historic sightseeing places and towns (like Bodiam Castle, Hastings and especially Rye) around, a beautiful and clean beach with dunes and London close by. We can definitely recommend the area around Camber and take a return for another holiday into consideration.

Thanks for your service and kind regards,
Jul 2014

Beautiful house, very thoughtfully presented.

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with the house and everything that was provided. It makes such a difference that things like tea, coffee, bin liners, toilet rolls and dishwasher tablets were provided. It shows how much thought has gone into letting this house. It was lovely that the house was child and dog friendly. We would definitely stay again.

A beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely house with everything you could want for a comfortable break away. Lovely furnishings which gave it a lux hotel feel, but with the convenience of a home; ideal for young families but the grown ups still feel a bit spoilt. It really is a short walk to the beautiful beaches and lots to do in the area. Would highly recommend in terms of location & facilities. We ordered a food delivery from the supermarket when we arrived so it was the most hassle free holiday we've had. But the delicious cake waiting for us on arrival was still very welcome. Thank you for a lovely home from home!

Half Moon Cottage ist ein wirklich schönes Ferienhaus in einer hübschen Ferienhaussiedlung. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und auch der Garten ist gepflegt und man sitzt gerne draußen. Der Strand ist zu Fuß schnell erreicht, entweder über die Dünen laufen, oder am li Parkplatz ebenerdig zum Strand gelangen . An Ausflugszielen mangelt es nicht, Rhy ist echt klasse, Hastings-Battle interessant, Ashford Outlet mal ein gutes Outlet ,usw. Von Ashford kann man gut mit dem Zug nach London fahren ( Tickets am Schalter holen, komischerweise billiger als am Automaten). Die Hausverwalter Richard und Sophie haben sich sehr gut um uns gekümmert, das Haus war sauber, Betten bezogen, Begrüßungskuchen und Kekse + Getränke standen da. Richard hat uns sogar super geholfen als wir einen Platten hatten. (Thank you very much ,Richard). Wir hatten jetzt keine kleinen Kinder dabei, aber im Haus steht alles was man braucht und auch der Strand ist für kleine Klinder ideal. Kleine Supermärkte gibts im Ort oder in Rye. Insgesamt ein schönes Haus für einen schönen Urlaub

Wir waren zufrieden...

  • 4 of 5

Das Ferienziel Camber ist ein Ort der mehr oder weniger für Touristen gebaut ist. Dieses Haus leigt in einem Wohngebiet, welches aus lauter schmucken Ferienhäusern besteht. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und durchaus zu empfehlen.

Das Haus selbst ist sehr sauber und wohnlich eingerichtet. Von daher keine Beanstandung. In der Ausstattung sollten Handtücher mit dabei sein und das waren sie auch - jedoch etwas knapp berechnet. Wir hätten uns doch jeder ein Handtuch und ein Badetuch pro Person gewünscht. Toll war es, dass man drei Bäder zur Verfügung hat. Die Küchenausstattung ist ebenfalls gut und zweckmäßig. Im Kühlschrank fehlten die Einsätze in der Tür - somit konnten Flaschen und Milchtüten nur schlecht gelagert werden. Wer im Urlaub häufig essen geht und auch sonst nicht viel kocht, dem wird die Ausstattung reichen. Für mich, die ich gerne auch selbst koche und in den landestypischen Produkten schwelge, war es ein wenig sparsam ausgestattet. Aber Not macht erfinderisch....

Die umliegenden Geschäfte (zu empfehlen ist der Salts Farm Shop an der Straße nach Rye) bieten eine große Auswahl an vorbereiteten Gerichten, die man nur noch im Backofen erwärmen muss. Supermarktempfehlung: Morrisons in Hastings.

Ein toller Backofen ist vorhanden - er war sehr praktisch, durch die Aufteilung in zwei Backbereiche. Die "Kaffeemaschine" stellte sich als puristisches Modell zum manuellen Kaffee kochen heraus, mit Sieb zum herunter drücken. OK - Briten sind eher Tee-Trinker - aber eine Kaffeemaschine wäre schöner. Da sind wir verwöhnt :-) Schlafzimmer sind alle in Ordnung, sauber und groß genug. Zwei Zimmer haben jedoch keinen Kleiderschrank - evtl. muss dann alles in den einen Schrank im dritten Schlafzimmer - der ist groß. Sehr gut gefallen hat mir die Möglichkeit, die Treppe, die sehr steil ist, mit einem Verschluss abriegeln zu können. So können Kleinkinder nachts auf dem Weg zur Toilette oder den Eltern, nicht die Treppe hinunter fallen! Alle Fenster sind so gebaut, dass man sie gut abdunkeln kann. So blieb es immer schön kühl. Der "Garten" ist schlicht und eher karg, da nur wenige Pflanzen ein trauriges Dasein fristen. Jedoch gibt es einen Grill und Feuerstelle und Sitzgarnituren, die wir gerne genutzt haben.

Der Strand ist in schnell erreichbarer Nähe. Ein schöner Sandstrand, der gut besucht wird, hinter Dünen gelegen. Muscheljägern sei gesagt: Kaum Muscheln zu finden!

Das Haus hat uns gut gefallen - vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt !
