Barely an hour from London, Camber Sands is a wonderful five-mile stretch of golden beach, located only a four-minute walk from the cottage. Whatever the season - or weather - it's beautiful, with open skies and wonderful sunsets. The medieval town of Rye is three miles away, with a rich heritage dating back to Norman times.

The area offers something for everyone – walking and birdwatching, art, antiques, fascinating history and architecture, and excellent restaurants. Dungeness -'The Seventh Continent' - is an extraordinary landscape and the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway will appeal to all ages. The historic churches of Romney Marsh are stunning; it's not far to historic Hastings and Battle. Further afield are Brighton, Lewes, Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells, which offer entertainment, shopping and history.

There are local festivals throughout the year, including the Scallop Festival in February, the Jazz festival in August, the Rye Arts Festival in October and Rye's famous Bonfire Parade in November.

Bookings are welcomed all year round! Camber Sands are beautiful at any time of year and whatever the weather.

About Andrew Bamji

One Sunday six years ago we came for lunch with friends in Badger Way. We had a long walk on Camber Sands, an excellent lunch and saw the estate's show house. It had never been our intention to have a seaside house, but the next day we spoke to the agent and reserved Whitebeam Cottage, which we named after the whitebeam tree in the front garden.

We have spent many happy weekends and holidays here. In fact we came to love the area so much that we moved to the centre of Rye. Whether for a holiday, weekend break or special event, we are sure that you will love your time here too!

Andrew Bamji purchased this house in 2009

Fantastic family holiday home

House was lovely, very comfortable and well stocked with all applicances in the kitchen that you would need. It was also well positioned just 5 minutes walk from the beach. We had a lovely time there and are looking forward to returning next year.

Beautiful, good sized home in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a girls' weekend with my sisters-in-law and our three babies. We were delighted with the property when we arrived and the instructions for entering the property were simple and easy to follow. The interior is clean and well maintained and the house itself is well equipped with everything one could need for a self catering holiday. The garden area to the rear of the house is much larger than the pictures suggest and it's a lovely, tranquil space. The bedrooms are all a great size with one en-suite. All of the rooms were large enough to comfortably accommodate a travel cot. The location of this property is excellent with easy access to the beach and the area's many attractions - a trip on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway is a must for young and old alike. Many thanks for a wonderful weekend.

A lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A very well presented and clean house with all the amenities needed to feel at home. Some delicious treats awaited us upon arrival which we thought it was a very lovely detail. The close proximity to the beautiful beach was fantastic as it meant we didn't have to pack for a day trip and we could stay for as long or little as needed. My only suggestion would be to provide more information about the amenities offered ahead of the trip as I had to guess what was available before we got there. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and the suggestion regarding information on amenities. I will look at adding a section to the information that is sent out but once a booking has been confirmed guests should have access to material on the Homeaway site. I will make access easier! Anyway we are glad you had a good stay.
