Cottage, Camber Sands, Nr. Rye, East Sussex, England - Peaceful, Location Just Metres From The Beach
No. 5 is a quiet place set in relative wilderness but within easy reach of local amenities and bus routes. Camber Sands is less than a mile away and the beautiful cinque port town of Rye is a 5 mile walk or short drive away. The cottage is ideally suited to family groups with children or a maximum of six adults and is just yards from Broomhill Sands which has a shingle beach at high tide and clean sand and shallow water at low tide. The cottage itself has been recently refurbished and renovated to provide comfortable accomodation, with all the modern facilities you'd expect. It has a raised deck to the back looking over the military ranges to Dungeness where you will be able to see many rabbits, bird and animal life. To the front of the cottage is a large garden, with table and chairs, Chimenea and BBQ facilities. No. 5 also has a garage where you can store all your water sports equipment safely. Inside the property is ample living space with 3-4 bedrooms (4th bedroom/cinema room or den for the kids). The cottage has WiFi, DVDs and many fun board games.

About nicky gittins
Both my husband and I have been coming to the Camber and Rye area for many years, in my husbands case since he was an art student many years ago. We always took our children down to the beach here when they were very little, so when we had the opportunity of completely renovating a beautiful Victorian coastguard cottage right on the beach we naturally jumped at the chance.
nicky gittins purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why nicky gittins chose Romney Marsh
We love the vastness of the sky and the wildness of this particular end of the beach. It is generally very quiet, sometimes there are only rabbits and birds about. It really is our bolt hole, somewhere to escape from it all and relax.
What makes this Cottage unique
The nature and the peacefulness of the area are obvious benefits of being here, We love the fact that you can do everything straight from the door, swimming, fishing, beach combing, cycling, walking. Our children love being here and have started to learn various water sports too.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Lovely cottage and great beach
Great access to beach (which is huge at low tide). Lovely cottage.
A beautiful home
As a family we have holidayed in many rental properties, this is by far one of the best. From the very well appointed kitchen (has everything a chef needs) to the beautifully detailed decor. This is not rental property furnished on a budget, the beds, sheets and towels all good quality, everything in the house has been tastefully considered. We had a wonderful relaxing time in this beautiful home.
It is a gorgeous house that has everything you need.
We had a lovely few days away with three generations and all enjoyed their time greatly.
A fantastic location, beautiful well equipped cottage , with great outdoor space
The cottage and gardens were perfect for us. We spent most of our time outside either on the beach or in one of the four seating areas in the garden area. There was shade or sun, whatever we wanted. At night we lit the fire pit and the BBQ and wandered in late to the cosy sitting room.
The two main bedrooms were very comfortable and light and airy and the bunk room good for kids. The fourth bedroom, one being in the basement and two having a sofa bed wasn't quite so good , but didn't spoil our stay.
The kitchen was well equipped and the cottage overall was comfortable, airy, cosy and very tastefully decorated.
We were also impressed by the treasure trove of toys seating and extra fridge freezer in the garage.
We were a party of 6 adults and three children (1 very young) and we would all come again. Thank you Nicky for a very enjoyable stay !
Lovely cottage, great location.
Had such a lovely stay here. The location is great but it is a bit remote so a car is useful. The beach is on the doorstep and it's vast and perfect for dog walking, running etc. The cottage itself is super stylish and quirky and has all you'd need for a great stay (plus a welcoming bottle of wine; a very much appreciated touch!). Loads of really great places to eat a short drive away in Rye or nearby - highly recommend The Horse and Cart in Peasmarsh; amazing food and service. Dungeness is a (shingle-y) stones throw away and is incredible. We had such a great stay here - Nicky was super helpful before and during our trip without being intrusive; this is a lovely place to stay.
Perfect cottage, beautiful beach
We loved staying in this lovely cottage in a quirky location. The cottage has everything you need,has been planned perfectly and stylishly. From a perfect spot to sit to catch every moment of sun outside to 3 televisions including one larges screen for film nights. We enjoyed walks to Rye where you can get great food, Dungeness and just pottering on the beach next to the house. In warmer weather it would be amazing but we enjoyed using the log burners and fortunately the weather was kind if cold.
Thank you for a great time!
The beach, Broomhill Sands, is right on the door step at the bottom of the garden (approximately 70 metres), less than a minutes walk away from the house. Broomhill sands is a beautiful quiet sloping shingle beach at high tide and a sandy shallow one at low tide, perfect for children. Broomhill and Camber Sands just along the coast are certainly two of the most dramatic beaches on the South Coast and the sunsets in Spring and Autumn are really beautiful.
The cottage is approximately 30 minutes drive (21 miles) away from the M20 motorway and Ashford International with rail links to London and Eurostar service into Europe. Dover is 41 miles away (approximately 55 minutes drive) and Folkstone is slightly nearer, 34 miles away.
Gatwick Airport is 68 miles away (approximately 1 hours and 35 minutes drive away) and Manston Airport is 55 miles away (about 1 hour, 20 minutes drive away).
Rye is a 10 minute drive away and Lydd, in the other direction is an 8 minute drive. Hastings is 18 miles away (approx 30 mins in the car) and Tenterden takes about 30 minutes to get to by car.
