About Mrs L Simmonds

We are young professionals based in London and looking to improve our quality of life by spending time at the seaside during weekends. We love being in the house with family and friends.

Mrs L Simmonds purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mrs L Simmonds chose Camber

We have holidayed in Camber many times. The locals are friendly, the beach is wonderful and it is close to home! There are some great restaurants and we love food!

The pace is slow, it's quiet and we find it a very tranquil place to be.

The best kept secret of the area is the fact that the weather is fantastic in Autumn and Spring!

The cottage is moments from the beach, close enough to walk to bars/pubs/restaurants and easy to find..... It is located on an unmade road off the main strip and did I mention, moments from the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

When we bought the house it was a two bedroom bungalow which was falling apart. We fell in love with it and its location and with some vision we have renovated it into a 4 bedroom cottage. For us its all about being with family and friends making wonderful memories. We wanted to provide warm, comfy, modern open pan living to ensure visitors have simply an unforgettable time.

Camber is in its own time warp! Although it is being dragged into the current era! There is a mix of old traditional property and new and improved. The pubs and restaurants are comfy and welcoming. Absolutely fantastic!

Rye is just outside of Camber and it is a magical place, full of cobbled streets, eateries, pubs (with roaring fires) and shops! All independent shops of course no multiples, there is lots to do in the surrounding areas too.

We use the property ourselves & wanted to create a home away from home. All of the fittings are of a good quality & are new. The property provides open plan, tranquil accommodation that is filled with light & it has a secure garden that is mainly grassed. Whilst the living areas have tiled floors the bedrooms have deep bouncy carpets to bury your toes in. The house is steam cleaned to ensure hygiene and is excellent for young families. Both a cot and high chair are provided and there are lots of flat even space for little ones to run around. Outside: The garden is mainly laid to lawn. There is a shingled area with a round table that seats 8, with parasol and a BBQ. The garden is secure and secluded. It is not over looked. The garden overall is approx 40 foot x 40 foot. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Soft, good quality bed linen is provided as are bath & hand towels. There are also a few beach towels. The property is (steam) cleaned weekly before your arrival when bed linen is also changed. Should you have a problem assistance is close to hand.

Perfect place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is huge and the living/dining/kitchen area is like the finished properties in Grand Designs. However, regardless of this space, the tasteful furnishing gives the cottage a cosy, welcoming feel. The beds are comfortable, with lovely soft sheets. The showers are fast and hot. The house is clean and has all the crockery, cutlery and white goods that you could need. The Tides would be a great place for a large group of friends or a family get together. The weather was grim when I was there and after a long walk on the beach it was lovely to come "home" to the warm, cosy and very glamorous Tides.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Camber is one of the best places in the UK for a relaxed beach holiday and for kite surfing and wind surfing.


The cottage sits just behind the sand dunes. It is approximately 50 meters from the sand dunes set along an unmade quiet road. It takes approx 1 minute to meander to the dunes and onto the beach.


The cottage is less than 1 hour drive from Dover. The cottage is a 2 hour drive from north London (1.45 on a good day). To visit the local arrears a car is required.


There are pubs and bars and convenience stores/mini supermarkets within a 5 minute walk. In addition there are a number of takeaways also close by.

Rye is a 5-10 minute drive. Hastings is 25 minute drive. The cottage is very well located.
