Dunescape Camber beach house
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Right next to the beach! Exciting contemporary holiday home with geothermal under-floor heating, solar water heating, and a grass roof. Inside, white walls and oak floors give Dunescape a bright, stylish, yet refined holiday ambience not normally found in the UK. Some furniture, including the king-sized bed in the master bedroom, is made from reclaimed timber from Rye Harbour.
Camber is a wonderful seaside village, offering the best sandy beach in the South East of England. The gently sloping sandy beach is a mecca for windsurfers and kitesurfers, and watersports are taught both at the beach and at Rye Watersports' lake a mile away. Rye golf course is within walking distance. Dungeness RSPB reserve is a haven for rare bird species, and the local area is popular with walkers and cyclists. There are plenty of distractions for children, but that's if you can drag them away from their adventures in the sand dunes!

|Further details indoors|
Dunescape has three bedrooms, including an informal teenagers bedroom/den with TV. The enormous master bedroom has its own balcony, a quiet reading corner, and an en suite. The king-sized bed boasts a pillow-topped posture-paedic mattress for a great night's sleep.
Bedroom two has a single bed and a day bed, and may be configured to sleep one, two, or three people. eg, for two friends we can arrange two single beds, or for a couple we can make the daybed into a double. Three children may be accommodated in this room (two sharing the day bed top-to-toe, each with a single duvet).
Bedroom three is an informal teenagers' den/bedroom with a double sofa bed and a single futon. It is on the ground floor, and accessed through the games/utility room
Maximum party size is six, made up of four adults plus two children, or two adults and up to four children. Lower prices for 2015 for partes of up to 4 using just two bedrooms.
|Further details outdoors|
An integral games/utility room features. There is private parking for one car directly outside the property, plus unreserved communal visitor parking for a second car, available on a first-come basis.
Off the main living room on the first floor is a spacious west-facing deck (with table and chairs) with steps down to the communal garden, planted in a style to replicate the adjacent sand dunes. To the second floor, the master bedroom also benefits from a balcony with a table and two chairs, perfect for taking in the last rays of sun before it sets over the dunes. The ground floor teenagers' den/bedroom leads on to a garden-facing terrace.
Well-behaved and looked-after dogs are welcome.
The South East England region
Generally speaking, the South East has a climate that is warmer and drier than the rest of the UK. Even better news still is that Camber has its own micro-climate and often enjoys bright, sunny days when just a few miles inland the skies are grey.
The surrounding area is steeped in Natural and Historical interest, be it the enchanting shingle plains of the Dungeness Peninsular, or the Norman history of 1066 country.
First and foremost, whatever the weather there is the spacious sandy beach to enjoy! This is perfect for swimming, paddling, playing games on the sand flats, windsurfing, kitesurfing, buggying, walking, or simply enjoying a picnic.
If watching the windsurfers inspires you, then tuition is to hand a mile away at the Rye Watersports lake. This friendly, family-run centre runs kitesurfing, windsurfing, and dinghy sailing courses for all abilities on its safe inland lake that benefits from the summer sea breezes.
The 100 and 711 buses connect Camber to Rye railway station, New Romney, Folkestone, and Dover. Rye town is gorgeous, so spend a day enjoying its charming shops, cafes, and art galleries. Or take the train to Exciting Eastbourne, Historic Hastings, or Buzzing Brighton for a change of pace. Shoppers will head to the Designer Outlet Village right next to Ashford International station. Don't forget your passport; Eurostar can whisk you to Paris for a daytrip in under 2 hours from Ashford. If you prefer to take the car then Dover is a 45 minute drive away where frequent ferries and fast ferries connect the port to Dunkerque, Calais, and Boulogne.
Closer to home, the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway is a must for children and adults of all ages. Why not take the train to Dungeness, admire Derek Jarman's cottage, and climb the stairs of the lighthouse for the breathtaking panoramic views?
Walkers are spoilt for choice, whether the pace is for a stroll along the beach, a level walk over the Romney Marsh, or a more challenging hilly walk in the gorgeous Weald just to the North of Rye.
Cyclists also enjoy the choice of flat or varied terrain. Off-road routes connect Camber with Rye and Lydd, but if Singletrack is your mountain-biking pleasure then drive the 40 minutes to Bedgebury where a fantastic new 25km purpose-built trail awaits.
Golfers will delight that the famous Rye Golf Course is about 20 minutes walk away via an off-road pavement.

"Perfect holiday retreat"
Top of the range accommodation. Location is a few steps from the beach, so would be excellent for children but only ten minutes from Rye and Rye Harbour country park. National Trust properties within easy reach. Outstanding service from the owners.

"One of the best holiday lets we've stayed in"
In mid-December, we spontaneously decided to go away for new year and Dunescape was one of the few places available. It looked lovely and very well priced so we snapped it up.
We were so glad we did - it's beautifully furnished in a prime spot next to the beach, with impeccable eco credentials. The attention to detail made a huge difference - from the Christmas tree to the personalised message on the blackboard and the wonderful welcome pack, as well as enough books and games to keep us occupied for days. There was even a laundry basket, which made a welcome change from putting holiday laundry in a carrier bag!
The owner was friendly, helpful and responsive when booking, and returned my deposit promptly.
In short, I can't think of anything critical to say about Dunescape.

"Lovely cosy house just steps from a beautiful beach"
We had a brilliant holiday, walking by the sea, the river and the military canal as well as ambling through Rye. Dunescape was a perfect base: a clean, bright, roomy and well-equipped house with a great seaside feel. We were greeted with an extravagant welcome pack, which got our stay off to an excellent start. We'll certainly be back.

"Home from home by thew beach"
I can't recommend Dunescape highly enough!
It was like staying in a good friends property, everything from the welcome pack of essential goodies to save you having to head to the nearest shop before you have a cuppa, to the homely feel.
The owners have equipped the property very well and it was very clean and I as I said it very much felt you were staying in a friends house.
It you've come for the beach you're in the right place as it's literally yards away and the owners have provided deck chairs and a windbreak for you to use.
I would definitely recommend staying here to all age groups.
