When the tide goes out you can walk right out to meet the sea beyond which seems to have disappeared over the horizon. A safe place for the family to enjoy a day at the beach splashing about in the sea and making sand castles and then back for a picnic in the dunes. The cottage is only three miles from the charming and historic market town of Rye within 1066 country, where there are many sites to enjoy and restaurant's to try and lovely tea shops to sample, many use local produce and offer homemade delicacies.

We stayed for the weekend and were very pleased with the everything about this holiday cottage. It was very comfortable, lovely lounge and beds gave us a good nights sleep. Everything has been thought through and the quality was to a very high standard. The welcome pack was much appreciated. The whole cottage was very clean and fresh.

"Beautiful and extremely well-equipped"
The cottage itself was decorated to a very high standard, with everything you could imagine provided for - board games and children's books, even dog bowls! The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds very comfortable; my family and I had an excellent time. The location was just 10 minutes' walk from the beach, which was ideal for us. The caretaker was very helpful as well. All in all, highly professionally run and well worth a visit!
