About the home
Luxury 3 bed beach house, sleeps 6, located directly on a quiet ‘well kept secret’ stretch of beach, just a few miles from the ancient Cinque Ports town of Rye. Rebuilt just 2 years ago the house has every modern comfort and is the perfect beach retreat, bringing a touch of Miami-style chic to Britain’s sunniest coast. The small private garden provides direct access to the beach and has permanent built in seating and a BBQ area as well as an outside beach shower.
The beach itself is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the house is one of only 20 on the beach giving the whole experience of living in the house an exclusive feeling.At high tide the beach is shingle but the tide goes out to reveal a vast expanse of sand and rockpools, providing hours of fun.
The house is great for groups of adults or families looking for a quintessential beach holiday and is also a perfect base for fishing and hiking. Dog owners will be in their element since dog walking is permitted on the beach immediately outside the house.

The South East England / Sussex region
East Sussex is packed with history and full of interesting places to visit and has miles of beaches and countryside to enjoy, including many areas of natural unspoilt beauty. It is very suitable for a beach holiday and for those who love walking and other outdoor pursuits, as well as those who enjoy history and culture.
The coastal areas of E. Sussex are renowned for having the most sunshine in Britain and a mild temperate climate.
The Rye / Pett Level area
Ocean Point is right in the heart of 1066 country, Nearby are lots of historic towns. Battle with its ancient Abbey and the site of the battle of Hastings where King Harold fell in 1066. The ancient Cinque Port town of Rye with the world famous Mermaid Inn on one of the best preserved cobbled streets in Britain. Then there's the quaint fishing town of Hastings with its blackened fishing net huts and half timbered houses. Both Rye and Hastings still have active fishing fleets and local produce, from fresh fish to locally caught wild duck and pheasant or the famous salt marsh rye lamb is a delight to buy.
The area is also full of wildlife and places of natural interest to visit as well. From the Rye Nature Reserve to the Hastings Country Park with its amazing views from the Firehills over the sea there is no shortage of outdoor pursuits to be enjoyed, and the area is particularly good for walking and fishing.
The beach at Pett Level is unusual - mainly shingle but with an amazing low tide expanse of sand and rockpools and and the remains of an ancient forest buried under the sand. It's also a fairly well kept local secret and is rarely busy and with only 20 houses directly on the beach it's very easy to have a very special beach holiday indeed.
There nearest shop to the house for basic groceries etc is a 5 minute drive away at Winchelsea Beach . There are 2 pubs in Pett Level itself where you can get basic pub meals plus many restaurants in Rye or Hastings just a short drive away,
