Guestbook comments from the manager

Great house in a great environment. Fantastic beach! It is also ideal as a starting point to look around attractions in Kent / Sussex. London is easily accessible by train (via Ashford). The proximity to the Euro tunnel (just under 1h) is also beneficial. The booking from Germany without any problems and very well organized. Would book it again immediately!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The property is fantastic - 7 of us stayed on a girls’ weekend away and it was perfect for relaxing and spending time together. The location is great for the beach and a walk into Rye. Shame the gallivant was closed on the Saturday, I’ve enjoyed their cocktails on previous trips!

The owners kindly let us have a late check out and responded to any communication very quickly.

Would thoroughly recommend the house.

Perfectly positioned property, really homely and clean

  • 4 of 5

Had a great weekend at Mariners Moon, beautiful weather (for late September) so really got to appreciate the expanse of Camber beach which literally is a short stroll away. The property is clean, comfortable and in a lovely quiet location. The property and local area information provided in advance was really helpful including some excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do! All in all a great stay. We will definitely book with Beside the Sea Holidays again!

You couldn't wish for a more beach themed coastal property stunning

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a weekend , two families and two dogs and we had and amazing time. Absolutely everything is catered for, thought of and loads of little extra touches are provided. The communication was super efficient and helpful above and beyond. We thought the location was brilliant, just a short walk to the beach. The layout is just perfect for two families and we actually had 9 of us which they willingly accommodated . A must have property to visit and we will definetly be hoping to come back . The beach was just paradise for us , the kids and the dogs! Thank you so much for sharing your home.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 really enjoyed our stay here. There was lots of space and the house was beautifully furnished. Location is great with the beach being only a few minutes walk away. The property has all the mod cons you could want whilst retaining a real seaside charm. We would highly recommend.

Great location, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Had a relaxing long weekend at the end of April with friends (4 adults and 4 children) at this cottage which is exactly as described. The location is fabulous within a short walk of the amazing beach and a short drive from Rye.

The house was well presented, comfortable & sufficiently equipped for two families. Booking was straightforward and the manager visited us on the first day to make sure everything was in order. Would definitely recommend.

Car: recommended

White Sand, is a stylish development of two and three-bedroom cottages in the picturesque area of Camber Sands. Nestled between one of Britain’s finest sandy beaches and internationally significant grassland, this superb development is ideally situated – just a stone’s throw away from the beach, yet close to the picturesque, historic medieval town of Rye.

White Sand is designed as a traditional Fisherman’s village, these holiday cottages display an attractive mix of brick and blue and white weatherboarding with decking and shingle fronting the traditionally constructed seaside holiday homes. The contemporary interiors of the spacious rooms coupled with the light and airy atmosphere makes an inspiring, relaxing living space.

Perfectly located

White Sand is perfectly located on the East Sussex/Kent border allowing you to explore two of England’s loveliest and most historic counties, East Sussex’s 1066 Country and Kent’s Garden of England. Being only one and a half hours from London you can also make the most of what the capital has to offer, take in a show in the West End, shop in Oxford Street or visit the many iconic sites.

Tranquillity and pure escapism

A holiday at White Sand, will enable you to discover the classic rural landscapes, traditional seaside towns and ancient history all on your doorstep. There are several hundred miles of coastline comprising of stunning cliffs and chalk stacks, secluded sandy bays and broad stretches of pure sand, as well as heritage sites, sites of international importance for wildlife, popular holiday towns, international ports and tiny harbours. The countryside – the North Downs, the Weald and Romney Marsh – is breathtakingly beautiful. Spectacular undulating chalk hills roll down to dramatic white cliffs, punctuated by quaint villages and wooded valleys, offering tranquillity and pure escapism.

Discover one of the most historic parts of our country

You will also learn about our ancient culture and heritage too. Stand where English history began and where Christianity entered the country at Canterbury, see where the Roman rule started and ended, and where the most famous battle on English soil took place. Go underground at Dover Castle and find out how it has defended this island over the centuries. Trace the history of England’s royalty and aristocracy through the historic castles and houses that surround White Sand, such as Bodiam Castle, Herstmonceux, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle and Walmer Castle. Take a trip to Margate and explore the stunning new Turner Contemporary gallery on the seafront, and wander through the old cobbled streets of Rye, bustling with artist’s studios, shops and galleries.

Delight your taste buds.

Good food makes a great holiday, so come and taste the fine produce that comes from this area. From Romney Marsh lamb to Dover Sole and Whitstable oysters to Rye Bay scallops, from the juicy fruits of the orchards and vegetables from local farms, to fine award winning English wine and delicious ale made from Kentish hops – your taste buds will be delighted.

A a memorable holiday

From the crisp whites linen, cool and natural décor, through to the white sand and blue sky of the surrounding views, White Sand is the perfect place for a memorable holiday.

With the blend of the surrounding history and culture, along with the beauty and tranquillity of Camber Sands, White Sand is ideally positioned to enjoy the very best this unique corner of South East England has to offer.
