We had a great time at the Beach Retreat and will definitely be coming back. It was fully stocked with everything we needed and upon arrival had a lovely basket with treats that we devoured over our stay. My Daughter LOVED the chocolate teddy bears! The dunes and beach was a short walk away and we made daily trips to walk along the shore collecting seashells. The place was perfectly suited for my 6 year old. Ian also made some great recommendations on places to go with my daughter, which was super helpful as we were new to the area. The Rare Breed Centre in particular was quite the hit!

“A home from home stay”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just had a week at this wonderful cottage. Can confirm everything in the advert is true and much more. Tastefully furnished and very well equipped for all the self catering requirements of a keen cook. Lovely touches to welcome the guests, human and otherwise. Fridge of immediate needs, basket of essentials, wine, biscuits and treats for the non humans, doggie treats were well received. Well situated for the best of Camber Sands, 5 mins walk. Also amazing location for visiting so many lovely places around Camber. Rye,Dungeness, Winchelsea, Old town of Hastings, Fairlight Glen, nature reserve at Camber and many many National Trust houses. Liked Rudyard Kipling 's house, Batemans the best. Spent best part of the day, great place to walk the dog. Lots of other lovely walks and cycle rides from the cottage along the coast either way. Highly recommend 'The Beach Retreat' and will come again.

“Great Location and Super Clean”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than this very well cared for property! The location was perfect for walking to the beach (5 mins.) and it was in a perfect location to stay in when seeing other nearby sites. The house was perfectly outfitted with everything we needed and very clean! I would highly recommend this beach retreat!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have found a little bit of heaven on the Sussex coast. The beautiful Beach Retreat is 5 minutes walk to the amazing Camber Sands beach (maybe 7 minutes with two young children!) The cottage is warm, cosy and well equipped and the four of us were very happy there and extremely sad to leave. We enjoyed a lovely trip to Rye and would have liked to have stayed longer to enjoy more of this wonderful place! Thank you very much.

“A great stay in this lovely cottage - close to the beach and great for exploring the countryside”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a lovely short break in this well equipped cottage, which provided a warm and welcoming place to stay.
Our 2 year old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed her trip to the seaside and days out to the local nature reserves and towns.
