Description

Wake in comfort to the sound of the sea, explore the misty brooding Romney Marsh, then warm up in the many atmospheric pubs with intriguing histories, resident ghouls, roaring fireplaces, cracking ales and tasty pub grub, walk along our pebbled beach, look out across the shimmering blue sea and you'll feel like you've discovered another world..

Stay at Coastguard's Beach House and discover a landscape full of myth's and legends, surrounded by the haunting loneliness of Romney Mash. A flat, open landscape of wide skies and fields criss-crossed by a lattice of drainage ditches, where yellow waterlilies float in early summer, it offers the opportunity to wander quiet lanes and paths and to visit some of its famous medieval churches and the vast stretch of historic invasion coast.

Built in this secluded spot, to help guard against smuggling and invasion, this beautiful renovated coastguard cottage is the perfect location for a holiday away from the hustle

Please note: The environment agency is carrying out work to the sea wall (Aug 2014 - June 2015) and so you will find that the beach access is limited to when the firing range is not in use. Please refer to the environment agency website for more details. The MOD firing range is about a quarter of a mile away that is used occasionally, so do not be alarmed as it is not a shoot out with smugglers or Napoleon invading, its the British army sharpening their marksmanship!

Location description from owner

The England region

Jurys Gap

Coastguard Cottages are surrounded by interesting and high quality countryside, and so whatever time of year you visit there is always something special to see.

Situated on the edge of once smugglers haven of Romney Marsh just a few meters from the sea, Coastguard Cottages are the perfect place from which to explore diverse natural landscapes on foot or by bicycle.

From west to east the main sites are – Hastings Country Park, Brede High Woods, Pett Level, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Camber Dunes & Pits and Dungeness RSPB Reserve, but there are many smaller sites to discover.

A large part of this area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest that includes extensive areas of shingle ridges, sand dunes, marshland dissected by ditches, rivers and saltmarsh. Making this wildlife rich area a fantastic place for hiking and cycling holidays

Being so close to Europe put this area right on the front line in the turbulent centuries with France. With historic sites galore, atmospheric battlefields, stately homes, castles, ancient port towns and Norman ruins scattered across coast and countryside, the area is one giant museum. It heaves with history and heritage and there are historic mementos around every corner.

No stay would be complete without visiting on of England's best preserved medieval towns.

With its ancient citadel, set on a rocky promontory, the historic town of Rye is two miles from the open sea on the River Rother and became a fortified medieval Cinque Port over 800 years ago. Rye's past is woven with seafaring tales of naval battles, violent storms, lifeboat heroics and smuggling.

Surrounded by the famous Romney Marshes, with their treacherous footpaths and fickle tides, Rye gained independence by Royal Charter in 1289. Elizabeth I gave the town its Royal title in 1573 and the town hall displays an unbroken list of mayors since the 13th Century.

These maritime adventures have now given way to yachting and a vibrant fishing fleet whose catches – including Rye Bay scallops, Dover sole and Dungeness prawns – are relished in local gastronomic restaurants like The Mermaid Inn, where the infamous Hawkhurst Gang planned smuggling and kidnapping in by-gone days.

The marshes are now one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Europe and attract watchers and walkers from all over the world. There is much to do in Rye, with the world famous Rye Golf Club – founded in 1893 – and some of Europe's finest beaches nearby at Camber Sands. Kite flying, cycling, sand yachting and hiking are all enjoyed in the area, as well as most water sports.

There are many pubs and restaurants in and around the town and the outlying villages, all offering a slice of country nightlife away from the hustle & bustle. Rye is also a centre for antiques, books and ceramics, with several thriving markets, dealing in country produce, collectors items and, of course, fish.

“Fabulous location - gorgeous cottage”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

This lovely coastguard's cottage in a splendid location, just a few strides from the beach, was everything we needed it to be for a "get away from it all" weekend. The cottage is really comfortable, cosy and tastefully furnished - we will definitely be back for a longer stay.

Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely review. Look forward to seeing you back again soon. Richard, Sophie, Arthur & Oscar
