Exuding charm and style throughout, this cosy cottage makes the perfect retreat for anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle. Admire the seaside views and explore the surrounding countryside.

Enjoy a taste of beachside living and escape to the coast at this charming old coastguard's abode. Step off the beach and into this home for an evening spent snuggling up and getting cosy, or sip an al fresco tipple in the garden. Stunning views are a real treat to wake up to before heading out to explore your glorious surroundings.

 

Leave coats, leads and sandy footwear in the porch before continuing through to the open-plan living space. Throw open the French doors and let the fresh sea air fill the house and your lungs as it flows throughout. The lounge area is a sophisticated spot for a cup of tea and a good book, or curl up in the conservatory which is a light, bright space. Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen and dine in style with family and friends. The classic charm of this bolthole continues past the ground floor twin and upstairs to the spacious king-size bedroom where you can admire the wonderful views from the Captain's chair. Freshening up is a treat in the pleasant bathroom where muddy paws can be rinsed with ease and you can enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath.

 

Paddle, splash and savour a tasty picnic at the local beach where you can wander across the shingle and work up a healthy appetite. If you prefer a roam which includes spying out nature and wildlife, head to the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, 7 miles from home or 3 miles to the Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve which is known for its fantastic biodiversity management.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The position of the cottage is great for walking and visiting other areas, its right on the beach. The garden is fully enclose for dogs and south facing. The bathroom is very small, anyone tall would really struggle. The cottage sleeps four and would be good for a small family or a couple.

As soon as we stepped inside, we relaxed - it feels like a home that's been loved and enjoyed by families over the years. The location is fabulous, you can't get much closer to the sea than this! The garden hedge provides protection so even on the windiest of days we could sit in the conservatory with the doors open.

We absolutely loved this cottage. It is simple and homely and has a wonderful atmosphere. Beds were very comfortable, the sunny conservatory was delightful and the garden beautiful. Of course, the fact that the beach is on the other side of the garden hedge is what makes the whole place super special.

This is a very quaint, characterful cottage with a wonderful location right next to the beach. The cottage is delightfully quirky (indeed even a little scruffy around the edges in places such as the conservatory) but also very comfortable (lovely fresh white bedlinen and fluffy towels). The living room and bathroom are very small, but the main bedrRead moreoom and conservatory have plenty of space. We had rubbish weather but really enjoyed exploring nearby Rye, Dungeness, Hastings and beyond. Hide

Gorgeous little cottage right by the sea. It has so much character and we loved the slightly old fashioned look inside where everything is so well equipped and super comfy. It's so convenient for the beach and lovely walks, next time we will definitely plan to take our dog. It must be very cosy in the winter too - we hope to be back.

A really great place to stay for families with young children. Just a few steps from the garden to the beach (mostly peebles, sand only at low water). The garden is not well maintained, but there is some shadow to play in. Hastings is 15 minutes away and has some attractions. The kitchen is usefull equipped. The only negative thing to say about thiRead mores Cottage is the really tiny bathroom. Taking a shower is nearly impossible without setting the whole room under water. But we could deal with it.

The cottage was a little bit smaller than expected from the photographs. It was in a beautiful location but note that the beach off to the right is a private beach and also dogs are not allowed on part of the public beach between May to September. Both disappointing, as we planned to spend most of our time on the beach with the dog.
