Tucked behind the sand dunes, this stunning seaside home is just a couple of minutes from the vast expanse of soft golden sand at Camber. Once you have finished exploring the dunes and beach and have discovered the selection of water sports available, head to medieval Rye for an afternoon’s exploring. There you will find cobbled streets lined with independent shops selling antiques, freshly caught seafood and delicious coffee.

On the ground floor the L-shaped open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is the hub of the home. This is a fresh and airy space decorated with vintage photos, wall-hung sculptures and retro posters.

Once meals are prepared they can be enjoyed at the painted table that sits in sunlight next to French windows. The lounge beyond features leather chairs, two large sofas and a large south-facing window. A separate snug houses a Smart TV, DVD, comfortable L-shaped sofa and wooden feature wall, perfect for children and teenagers to enjoy a film on Netflix.

The highlight of this seaside retreat is the beach itself. The golden sands at Camber are famous — a wide expanse of beach, soft dunes and hideaways, and the dramatic surf, all add up to a proper day at the seaside. Head inland for pubs and cafes, shops and pretty streets to wander. Journey west just 4.5 miles and you'll reach the heart of the medieval town of Rye, a fascinating place to explore with your group, and home to beautiful cobbled shopping streets where you can pick up antiques and collectables, or a fresh catch of the day to take home to your fabulous kitchen. Rye sits on the edge of the High Weald part of Sussex, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty full of forests, lakes, streams and hidden paths, offering walks, hikes and cycle rides to explore during your stay.

A lovely house, decorated with great care, in a beach house style. We loved our family reunion here and the house contributed heavily to the excellent atmosphere.

The house was absolutely perfect. We were a party of 10 celebrating a 70th a 40th and Christmas and could not have had a better time. A 3mn walk took us to the most amazing beach which was great for walking off all the excesses. Everything you could want or need was there.

The Shell House is a well equipped comfortable house, perfect for families. It is near the beach which is very nice. Camber itself was disappointing but as a base to visit Rye, Hastings etc it is ideal.

Reviewed by Sean 2nd August 2019

We had a fantastic family holiday with parents, siblings and kids. The house didn't feel crowded with the 10 of us. The location is a short walk to a fantastic beach. We used this as a base to explore the coast a bit. Rye was nice, Hastings has some quirky shops and plenty of history. The light railway from dungeness which runs up the coast was funRead more. The house was clean with plenty of equipment to self cater and eat together as a family. Excellent communication with the owner. Hide

A bright modern interior with a costal vibe gives this house a modern feel and it has a great layout. Its location is ideal as its a short walk to the beach and the addition of a sand pit in the garden means the kids can still have fun when not on the beach.
