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 East Sussex

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.

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.

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.

Lovely house and great location right by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a great weekend at The Tides with friends. Plenty of space for nine of us with all the facilities you need. Ideal location - just a short stroll from the beautiful, sandy beach. Would definitely go again.

An excellent house only a short walk from a stunning beach - a perfect way to see in the new year

  • 4 of 5

The Tides is a great house, designed perfectly with open plan living in mind. The house is very well equipped and was a fabulous place for two families to come together to celebrate New Year. Our party of nine, consisting of five children aged four to ten had a wonderful time relaxing in the house and exploring the local area. Beach walks every morning were followed by some gorgeous food - we recommend The Gallivant in Camber and the Standard Inn in Rye. There are a couple of shops very close to the house and it really does only take a couple of minutes to walk to one of the most stunning beaches you will find! We'd love to return!
