The East Sussex region
East Sussex is part of the ancient kingdom of the South Saxons who established themselves during the 5th Century AD after the departure of the Romans. The area had been populated for many thousands of years before then. There is an abundance of archaeological remains, especially in the upland areas. The area's position on the coast has also meant that there were a number of invaders, those of which included the Romans and later the Normans.
From a geological point of view East Sussex is part of the southern anticline of the Weald. The South Downs, a range of moderate chalk hills which run across the southern part of the county from west to east and which are mirrored in Kent by the North Downs. To the north lie parallel valleys and ridges, the highest of which is the Weald itself.
Over a thousand years of history have formed the county of East Sussex with its green fields having been the sites of many great battles. East Sussex is studded with castles. Hastings Castle was built in 1066 straight after the invasion on top of the cliff that now overlooks Hastings Old Town. It was rebuilt in stone in 1070 as the first permanent Norman castle in the country. Pevensey Castle is four miles north-east of Eastbourne. William the Conqueror seized the Roman fort at Pevensey after beating the English at the Battle of Hastings. Bodium Castle north of Hastings, was built in the 14th century, one of the few examples of a castle built for a private citizen. Incapable of being defended against cannon fire, it surrendered when attacked. The Parliamentarians were ordered to dismantle it, so it remained a ruin until partially restored in the 19th century. In 1917 Lord Curzon purchased and restored the castle. It is now owned by the National Trust.
Earlier industries have included fishing, iron-making, and the wool trade, all of which have since fell into decline. Today, with the main towns being popular seaside resorts, East Sussex's main industry is the tourist trade.
There are wide open spaces from the beaches and cliff tops of the coast to the chalk hills and meadows of the South Downs. There are narrow cobbled alleyways and elegant Regency squares, along with medieval cottages and fairytale castles. The mixture of glorious gardens, picturesque old villages, stylish bars and restaurants and fun nightlife are what makes East Sussex such a special place. It is here where you can relive a Norman battle, visit an Indian-style royal palace, go llama trekking, find a 69m long chalk man on a hillside and dine on a 1920's Golden Arrow steam train, and all in the space of a day.
East Sussex is a fascinating mix of sleek city pleasures, laid-back beach life and unspoilt countryside. It is historic, wild and sophisticated, exotic and traditional, all at the same time.
Camber Sands beach is a two-and-a-half mile stretch of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes only two hour's drive from central London. It is being newly rediscovered as a UK holiday destination of choice and was voted number 9 of the 100 Best Beaches in the World by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. The unspoilt beauty of the beach as well as its sheer size have made it a popular location for fashion photo shoots and films including doubling as the Sahara Desert in a 'Carry On' film and as the Dunkirk evacuation beaches in several war epics. At low tide the sea can be as much as half a mile from the dunes which makes it a popular location for horse-riding and kite-bugging. The clean and shallow water makes it ideal for children.
With constant winds coming straight off the sea and from the vast expanse of the Romney Marshes, Camber has become a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts whilst the west winds and shallow sea make it a great place for kite-surfing. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, waterski-ing, wakeboarding and jet ski-ing are all available locally either from the beach or on a large coastal lake just outside Camber. There is also sailing on the river Rother 3 miles from Camber.
For swimming, the beach boasts a yellow flag award from the MCS, the highest UK award for water quality standards. Golf lovers are well catered for with an impressive 44 courses within a 30 mile radius. Tennis courts and bicycle hire are also available locally. There are many local walks with natural and historical points of interest.
The village of Camber has a couple of pubs including The Dunes café and restaurant, and the award-winning The Place at the Beach Bar and Grill offering a range of delicious dishes made from local, free range and organic ingredients. The Rye Bay Beach Cafe has also recently opened, offering guests a further dining option within a few minutes stroll of the house. The delightful, medieval town of Rye (4 miles from Camber) also offers an excellent selection of pubs, cafés and restaurants. Alternatively buy and barbecue your own fresh seafood!

Extremely well appointed, very modern house in Camber, a welcome refuge from the biting cold of the south coast in February. We were travelling with our one year old and were very grateful for the cle… More
Thank you for posting a review of your stay. We are very pleased on the feedback of the property and glad you enjoyed your stay at Long Beach.
I personally disagree with the comment about the walk to the beach from the property being less than idyllic. The development where the property is located - Whitesand - takes its style from traditional fishing villages with its variety and colour - the blue and white weatherboarding of the properties is alike traditional coastal villages. The homes have been designed in traditional materials to blend with the East Sussex vernacular and the development picked up the Development of the year award in 2009, deservedly so since it is a beautiful setting with the pretty house and lovely ponds which make a picturesque stroll to the nearby Camber Sands beach - making Whitesand perfect for holiday cottages.
