Fantastic weekend escape with the girlfriends. Plenty to do and see over a short weekend break, from long beach walks regardless of the time of year, to browsing the galleries, antique shops and exploring the coffee shops, pubs and restaurants in Rye. Something for everyone.
Have just come back from a weekend visit with girlfriends. The bungalow is beautifully light and sunny and SO cosy for a winter break with lovely wood burning stove and plenty of comfy chairs, throws and cushions. The kitchen is very well equipped with all mod cons. The property is very private with a decking area and small garden for when the weather is warmer.The beach is just a short stroll away and the quaint town of Rye a ten minute drive. It is the perfect place for a coastal escape.
My family and I could not recommend this beautiful beach retreat enough. It has been restored to a stunning finish, with Laura Ashley bedding, scatter cushions and throws making it so cosy and charming, an eye for detail has been given to every room and the beach theme has been kept to throughout the property, I cooked breakfast and dinner everyday of our 5 day stay and I had every utensil to do this. My 15 year old daughter wants to move in!! Our cockapoo loved sunning himself on the decking in the enclosed, private garden and of course running along the beach making many a doggy friend!! which is literally a stones throw away, my son loved waving to me from the top of the sand dunes whilst I was in the garden of the retreat and also visiting the nearby skate park and football green daily. We loved all the board games provided and watched dvds in the evenings which were also supplied. We opened up the doors fully to make the decking area an extension of the home letting the autumn sun flood into the kitchen and dining area. It really is just the perfect property for a family Autumn break. I would also like to say how professional and efficiently the owners were when we booked the holiday and our arrival there.
This was our second stay at Owlers. Once again, we came back very relaxed, missing it already! Our little dog has also enjoyed every second of it, running along the beach (the dog-free zone has already ended for the winter months which is great). Highly recommended!
The house is perfect with everything we needed for our getaway to the beach. The nearby pub was dog-friendly too, which was nice! Great property in a great location.
Myself and my husband chose Owlers Retreat for the second part of our honeymoon (and to win back some brownie points with our dog Walter). It's right on the doorstep of the beach which was great for morning and evening walks, and a 10 minute drive from the lovely historical town of Rye which is full to the brim with quaint pubs, wine bars/shops and antiques which are all dog friendly (bonus!). We walked the 3 miles (one way) to and from Rye which is an easy walk too.
We visited just outside of school holidays so we were able to get around with ease, I can imagine with the beach house being so close to the beach in peak holiday time it could be busy getting around. Owlers itself is fantastic, beautifully decorated with a fully equipped good sized kitchen. You can tell the owners care a lot about Owlers and it really feels like a home from home. We came straight from the airport and so the welcome pack of bread, milk butter and a bottle of wine was very well received.
It was a genuinely relaxing stay - we can't wait to come back again!
Owlers Retreat is a perfect place for young family's in easy walking distance of Camber Sands beach. The house is fully equipped can sleep 6 and is easily maintained, with a nice small garden.
Basketball/Football pitch and Skateboard site nearby.
Peaceful, idyllic and highly recommended for any age group.
We really enjoyed our stay.
