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.

Great location only a few minutes from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Good spacious open plan ground floor and comfortable sleeping accommodation.

Perfect location for a bucket and spade holiday.

Some finishing touches needed and a colour coding for the keys and doors would have been helpful.

Great fresh fish in Rye by the bridge and basics well catered for locally.

Spacious and accommodating

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at the Tides. At the beginning there was inclement weather so we were indoors more than expected. This is where the house comes into its own as there is so much space. Our granddaughter loved the choice of toys and games available. When the sun came out there was no place better than Camber Sands and only a minutes walk away! With the bus stop only 50 yards away we were able to use our (oap) bus passes into Rye and with the Pontins main entrance again only 50 yards away our son and daughter in law took our granddaughter to use their swimming pool and back again one evening to enjoy the entertainment. Our other son and daughter in law enjoyed the nature reserve which was only a ten minute drive away. We also enjoyed meals at Khans indian restaurant (a 5 minute walk) and Dunes restaurant (a 1 minute walk). Thank you Tides!

Very close to main beach area. The property was very clean & having a garden was great after a day at the beach.

Lovely house, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the May Bank holiday weekend. We were two families with a total of 4 adults and 5 children. The house was spacious and it easily accommodated us all. The Kitchen was well equipped and it was great to have everyone sitting together in the communal area whilst we either ate or relaxed on the sofas. The conservatory was great in the evening as the adults could stay up later chatting whilst the kids in the rooms downstairs slept undisturbed!! The house is great in location and the kids loved been able to go off and play in the sand dunes which are so close by. We were surprisingly lucky with the weather so it was great to be able to sit outside in the pleasant garden. The hammock was a hugely popular!!!!

Great space, good location, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared a very happy Easter weekend with our 2 daughters families. The grandchildren were both 2 and, in spite of Storm Katie being unkind with the weather, we all had a super time. The property is well equipped with a large open living area and well equipped kitchen. ( Great for the Easter Egg Hunt). The beach is a stone throw away and we enjoyed our ride on the R H and D railway! We visited Rye. I would not hesitate in recommending the property and the owner Louise was very helpful in answering my questions. Well done!

Wonderful, spacious property, so close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a joint 40th and 50th birthday weekend. There were only 5 of us, so we were very spoilt for space as the house is very spacious and generous in proportions. We're definitely going to return with our daughters and another family of four as it can so easily accommodate two families. The owner was also very helpful and reliable.

Car: necessary

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.

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.
