Marsh View Cottage is very well appointed being nestled between the miles of beautiful sandy beach and magnificent sand dunes just a few minutes stroll to the front of the cottage and the SSSI protected marshes directly behind the cottage. The rural views to the rear have therefore made this lovely Camber Sands holiday cottage particularly popular with our guests as the cottage enjoys uninterrupted views across the sheep studded marsh from its own private, fully enclosed rear garden.After a busy day on the beach enjoy leisurely barbecues in the quiet garden while soaking up the views directly behind the cottage, with only the sheep and wild life passing by. Our unique location means that we are in one of the quieter areas of Camber away from the busiest areas, but still very close to the beach.
Marsh View Cottage is perfect for weekend/short breaks or longer stays all year round. Our seaside holiday cottage is ideal for couples or young families. Our self catering cottage in Camber Sands is near to the beach which is just a few minutes walk away.

The South East England region
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. We are just 3 miles from the borders with Kent - The Garden of England.
There are wide open spaces from the beaches and cliff tops of the coast as well as Romney Marsh, 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.
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.
The local area has something to offer everyone. With golf, fishing, and a variety of watersports just moments away those looking for an activity holiday are well provided for. There are also cycle routes and many good walks from the cottage.
If history is your interest there is enough to occupy you during your stay. With many fine castles and houses in both Sussex and Kent to visit. Rye is just 3.5 miles away and is a stunningly beautiful example of a medieval town with its cobbled streets and centuries old buildings.
Marsh View Cottage is in a lovely location, sandwiched between one of the UKs finest beaches just a short walk away from the cottage - and with protected marsh land to the rear, you will be assured of no shortage of things to see and do.When you're hungry, there's something for everyone from fish and chips to some great local pubs and restaurants in walking distance and also in Rye, Winchelsea, Tenterden to name just a few. If you're cooking yourself, there's amazing local produce including fresh fish straight off the Rye fishing boats, award-winning wine and Romney Marsh lamb.
Camber Sands beach was voted number 9 of the 100 Best Beaches in the World by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine.The beach is miles of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes. Easily accessible from London(,less than two hour's drive) and close to Dover and Ashford International Station for international links. The unspoilt beauty of the beach as well as its sheer size have made it a popular location for many. The clean and shallow pools left at low tide makes it ideal for children.
Camber has a local convenience store and a pub/restaurant as well as other restaurants within walking distance. The ancient town of Rye is a 5 minute drive [or taxi ride] away and there are numerous ancient pubs, restaurants and tea rooms to choose from.

"Disappointed in location - beware advert misleading!!!!!"
I booked this cottage as a special holiday to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and so paid rather more than I would normally pay for a holiday cottage. What sold it to me was the phrase 'n… More
We are sorry to hear you were disappointed. Your review as written is completely inaccurate.Our website through which you booked, very clearly states the following:
"Please read all information on this site and do look at our picture gallery. If you have any further questions please do ask us prior to booking. Please note that the shortest way onto the beach is across sand dunes which may not suit some people. There is a flat way onto the beach but this takes a little longer to walk to and dogs would not be allowed access to the beach from the flat area during May-Sept inclusive. There is a pay car park adjacent to the flat entrance to beach"
It is also clear in stating "Please remember that dogs are not allowed to be left unattended in the property." This is quite usual for holiday homes!
Obviously it is the responsibility of potential guests to look carefully at our website and conditions prior to booking. On booking this is also repeated in our T & Cs which are sent to guests with a booking form and you signed to accept. Your form did not indicate,that anyone with a chronic condition was to be staying.Had you advised us as such prior to booking we would have been able to discuss your requirements and our suitability further.We also provide our postcode so that guests may view the location via Google Earth so that you can see the proximity to the beach. This clearly shows there are other nearby properties. Something else you missed unfortunately.Our photo gallery clearly shows the location as being with other properties.This can hardly be called misleading? Guests tell us it takes 5-10 minutes to walk to the beach - depending on walking speed and ability.
Guests are politely requested by our professional cleaners who look after scores of local properties to strip their bed if possible before vacating.Guests are asked to wash up and leave our home in a good order.You were not asked, or expected to clean the house! Nothing unusual in those instructions for a holiday home whatsoever!
Marsh View Cottage has all 5* reviews which presumably is a factor in guests booking and makes your review even more questionable. These 5* reviews we hope are a testament to the great care, attention to detail and provision we make for guests. This is why we believe we have so many repeat bookings.Perhaps in future you should check your facts accurately before leaving anyone else an innacurate review.Welcome baskets are mentioned as being superb. Pricing is competitive with other similar Holiday Homes in the area and often we are the cheapest.Had we been a detached property on the beach we would have been considerably more expensive!
Camber's attraction is its beach. It's a VILLAGE, not a commercialised town!!! After that, Rye and the wonderful 1066 area are areas of outstanding beauty and of great historical interest. Our website clearly says this also.
We believe that your review is not based on fact, but rather your disappointment at your not booking a facility that you were aiming for due to not reading all the information that was available to you and not informing us of a disability? We are not to be blamed if you have not read information provided or communicated any questions or special requirements. This fault lies with yourself and yourself alone. We hope in any future bookings you make you will check all given information . With further research and careful reading of our information you would have concluded our cottage was not the one you wanted. This review is therefore unfair and inaccurate just because you did not check before you booked, as were the derogatory Facebook comments left late at night and the text sent to our phone ''warning us'' of consequences.
If booking a holiday home again ,we hope you will perhaps look with more care at the information provided and arrive at a match which suits you.May we advise you to inform future owners of a chronic illness so that they may advise accordingly on suitability.
We are glad though that you enjoyed Rye,found our cottage to be well equipped,liked and enjoyed the contents of the welcome basket and the bottle of chilled wine etc.
