“Perfect holiday house”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have just enjoyed an amazing stay at The Light House, the house was perfect, light and airy but also cosy and it was equipped with everything we could possibly need (we particularly liked having the Nespresso coffee machine and capsules to enjoy during our stay!) the beds are also really comfortable which is brilliant (and along with the sea air, must be why we slept so well).

We enjoyed spending time in the house and having walks with our dog on the amazing beach which is so close. We also ventured into nearby Rye (we even walked there with our dog on one of the days as there is a really easy footpath that takes you right to the town), we loved Rye and were really surprised and delighted that there was places we could take our dog in to with is for lunch, we enjoyed a really lovely meal at The Ship.

In short, we can't speak highly enough of The Light House and the area, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

“Absolutely perfect for a family break by the sea”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We booked the light house for a week in June for our first family holiday with our 10 month old son and his grandparents. My sister and her fiancée also joined us for the weekend.

The property is very spacious and tastefully decorated, it's very flexible with its sleeping arrangements in that it has a lovely master bedroom with en-suite, a "twin" room which has zip link beds so can be made up to another double, a room with bunk beds to sleep two (and could fit adults if needed) and also a double sofa bed in the living room. There's also a travel cot available.

The kitchen and beautifully decked patio offer the perfect set up for dinner and family meals and there's also a barbecue and a fire pit included.

If the weathers poor there's plenty to do inside with an excellent large flat screen tv with freeview and PlayStation 3 (including blu ray player) with a collection of films.

Wifi is also available which is great so bring your laptop or ipad,

Camber offers an amazing beach which we walked over to most days, it's very close and only a couple of minutes walk away.

All in all the Light House is perfect for a family break by the sea, it's also perfect for groups of friends or extended family breaks.

I can highly recommend the light house. The whole process is seamless, the keys are easy to collect, communication is excellent and it really is a perfect holiday home.

I hope we can visit again!

“Wonderful Cottage in the perfect location. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just returned from a weeks stay at The Light House. The cottage is delightful. Furnished and equipped to the highest standards and extremely spacious. Plenty of room for the six of us.Lovely comfortable lounge with a huge TV and games/dvd player .Super kitchen /dining room, which opens out onto the decked garden area, complete with fire pit. All very dog friendly , as completely and securely fenced all around. Lots of room for eating al fresco and BBQ's. South facing so a real sun trap.
Just a few minutes walk through the Link Way over the beach car park, up the most amazing dunes and you're on the glorious beach. Two miles long and so dog friendly. Kobi absolutely loved it, running up and down the dunes and then across the massive beach to have a paddle in the sea. Great sand for building Sand Castles too.
Rye is lovely and we visited regularly as great restaurants, Tea rooms and of course .... shops. It has a very quaint feel to it, with cobbled streets and castle towers. We hope to be heading back down for another stay at The Light House very soon. Thank you Richard for all your help and advice and info' and for making sure our stay was just perfect in every way.
