This whitewashed former coastguard’s cottage has been decorated to create a simple vintage style interior that directs the eye to the breath taking beach view outside.
Wake to the sounds of the sea lapping the shore from this former coastguard's cottage lying directly behind the sea wall at Camber Sands Beach. This secluded spot looks out to miles of soft golden sand and a vast expanse of grassy dunes. It's the perfect destination for families or friends looking to slow down the pace a little, away from the stresses and strains of modern life. Steps from the property lead directly down on to the beach, so you can be splashing about in the waves in no time.
With its marine-themed colours and decorations, the property is a beach house in appearance as well as location. There are many original features and vintage touches, from the tiled fireplace to antique mirrors. Curl up with a good book in front of the open fire in the lounge or catch up with your favourite TV shows. As the sofas face each other, they're ideal for playing card games or having chats over coffee. Cook up a family feast in the electric Aga and gather round the farmhouse dining table to chew over the day's events. One of the double bedrooms is on the lower ground floor – perfect for those who want extra privacy. From the first-floor bedrooms, enjoy sweeping views of the beach.
The local area has something for everyone, from beach walks and kitesurfing to fishing and birdwatching at the wildlife havens at Dungeness and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, both within 8.5 miles of the property. The medieval town of Rye is less than 5 miles away and boasts pretty tea rooms and a castle museum with medieval gardens. If you want to venture further afield, try an award-winning sparkling wine at Gusbourne Estate Vineyard (13 miles) or see a rare wooden portcullis at Bodiam Castle (18.5 miles).
