Camber Sands has always been a popular summer destination , especially with travellers from London and the South East, but recently we have seen a growing number of weekend visitors all year round, maybe due in part to recent articles published in national magazines and newspapers. The Times recently described Camber Sands as “Britain’s version of the Hamptons” with its five mile beach and sand dunes. Of course, the beach, with its miles of golden sand, is a big attraction, especially to families and dog owners, but the proximity to Rye also appeals to weekend guests. This little hill top town is one of the most picturesque and most photographed in England with its cobbled streets, timber framed houses and Georgian cottages. It is also packed with an eclectic mix of independent shops selling anything and everything from antiques to modern chic, gifts to home ware, if you’re looking for something less ordinary then you may just find it here in Rye and when you need a rest from shopping there are plenty of wonderful tea rooms, cafes, inns and restaurants in which to while away the time and watch the word go by. A delightful place for Christmas shopping!
If you like the weird and wonderful, then a drive out to Dungeness is not to be missed, about 20 minutes east of Camber this remote landscape is much loved by artists and film makers. Keen photographers will be in their element. While here you can climb to the top of the old lighthouse for some wonderful views and take a ride across the shingle and marshes on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, the worlds smallest public miniature railway. The Pilot Inn at Dungeness probably has some of the best fish and chips in the country too!
And, of course, at the end of the day you have your lovely comfortable cottage to return to. Stay in and watch a film, play a game or just relax and chat over dinner, or book a table at The Gallivant just a few minutes walk away and enjoy fine dining at its best (they offer our guests a 10% discount on all food and drink) or a pint of ale and a homecooked meal at our local, The Owl who also welcome dogs.
What are you waitng for?
"A perfect weekend getaway .... the beach was beautiful, even when cold and windy!"
