This breathtaking Scandinavian-style beach house is full of rustic charm. Decorated with an eclectic mix retro and driftwood finds for your guests to enjoy. Its perfect for family gatherings and reunions with your friends.

This spacious beach-style property is situated behind the dunes at Camber Sands and is just minutes from the beach. As its name suggests, Camber Sands is popular due to its wide expanse of golden sands, which is rare for this stretch of coast, where most beaches are shingle. There is everything here for beach lovers, whether they prefer quietly relaxing, having a go at water sports or walking amongst the dunes. Within a short drive is the town of Rye, with its cobbled streets, small shops and many places to eat. Near to Rye is the pretty village of Rye Harbour, which has a beach front RSPB nature reserve and a gastropub.

As soon as you step inside this gorgeous, weather boarded house, you will immediately get a feel for the property’s signature style. Contemporary and seasidey at the same time, the property has a light and airy feel throughout. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is the heart of the house and has some lovely arty touches in the decor. The kitchen has everything you will need, with double oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and coffee machine. The large dining table comfortably seats ten and is positioned next to the French doors which lead out to the garden. In addition to this room, is a separate snug room, which has comfortable sofas, TV and a lovely retro cabinet full of DVDs. There is a downstairs bedroom which has a king-size bed. You will also find a ground floor shower room, as well as a separate WC which also acts as a laundry room, with washing machine and metal trough-style sink, perfect for rinsing off wet suits or flip-flops. The rest of the bedrooms are found on the first floor and all are decorated in a chic seaside style. There are two super-king-size zip-and-link bedrooms (which can be made into a twin on request). There are two further bedrooms, each with twin beds. The main bathroom is stunning with its large freestanding bath and WC, whilst there is also a shower room with large shower and WC.

French doors from the property’s dining area open on to an enclosed garden which has a picnic bench table as well as patio furniture to enjoy dining al fresco. The area has garden lights and outdoor power so that you can stay out long after the sun has gone down. Children will enjoy the large sandpit complete with toys. There is private parking for three cars at the side of the property.

This is a very special place to stay, so light and airy. We were a party of four generations. Youngest 10 months, the eldest 98 years. The house catered to us all. The sand pit is a great addition, the youngest members of the group the eldest being 8 years really enjoyed this. The 98 year old using a walking frame was able to gain full access to thRead moree ground floor with enough room in all rooms to move freely. We had a fabulous week and hope to book again next year.

This is a wonderful house for a large family party. The dcor is smart and light, the furniture very comfortable, and the house has everything you need. The garden is well enclosed for small children and the large sandpit was the biggest hit of our stay with small children. It's very easy to walk to the beach. Altogether this was a memorable holidayRead more because the accommodation was so good. Hide

Had a fantastic week at Shell House. Perfect location - we really enjoyed our evening strolls to the beach so the kids could play in the dunes or paddle in the water. The house was perfect for our needs (family of 10) with large rooms and the separate snug/tv room was a great bonus. The communication with James was excellent throughout. Would thoroRead moreughly recommend. Hide

We had a great weekend. The property was bigger than we expected, lovely and light and beautifully decorated inside. It was all clean and very easy to live in - we were 6 adults and a couple of teens and there was plenty of space to all sit, eat and get away from each other! We have friends who live at the other end of Camber, and it was a very easRead morey 10 min walk between houses. And perfect for the beach. Thank you, we'll definitely be booking again. x Hide

We loved Shell cottage at Camber. The house is huge, extremely well appointed and a two minute walk from the beach. There is a lovely outside area with seating and a sandpit for children. We would highly recommend.

If you want a holiday property for an extended family group with a real beach-hut feel to it then this is the place for you. I liked the all-white paintwork with featured decorations Lots of charming rustic character and well equipped. Excessive rain both before and during our stay had left the 2min walk along to the beach well puddled, but the cloRead morese boarded wooden flooring (also painted white) was easy to sweep through from collected sand. Owners were most helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Hide

Reviewed by Claire 30th March 2018

The property was first class. Lovely location so we could take the 2 dogs and they could enjoy the beach every day. The weather wasnt great but due to the proximity to the beach it didnt matter. Look forward to staying here again.
