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.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We do try hard to make sure our guests stay is comfortable and enjoyable. The garden is north-east facing and in the summer months actually gets full sun for the first half of the day. Guests have enjoyed very sunny breakfasts on the decking as well as long lazy barbecues at other times of day where they have enjoyed the views across the sheep studded marsh .Being partially east facing, the sunrises across the marsh can be spectacular. This also gives us the added benefit of our south-west facing lounge always being light and bright too with some wonderful sunsets to see! As you also rightly point out, we are so close to the stunning beach too.
