We recently visited the Beach retreat for a friends birthday weekend... with children. The layout and space was fantastic and, with a large catering style kitchen, it lent itself perfectly to cooking for parties/groups. The bedrooms were comfortable and both with ensuite, waterfall showers and jacuzzi bath, which was a bonus! Extra single rooms would be ideal for older children. The garden was perfectly positioned to capture the summer sun all afternoon and into the evening whilst the proximity to the beach was fantastic! Dungeness is just a 20min drive from the house along a coastal road and well worth a visit. You can also get there via the Dymchurch steam train for an authentic experience. We will be back....
Our stay at the Beach Sun Retreat definitely lived up to our expectations, from the photos and info on the website.
The house itself is very spacious and immaculately presented. This was perfect for our break, which was a family celebration for a 30th birthday. There was a welcome hamper on arrival which was a nice touch and we were met by Kerry who took the time to show us round all the rooms and explain how to use the equipment in the sun room. For us, the sun room was definitely the highlight of the house, it was so relaxing and the DJ equipment and special lighting really added to the experience.
The cinema room was small but authentic. However, it may have been nice to have a TV elsewhere in the house where you can relax on more comfortable seating.
The bedrooms are attractively decorated with very comfortable beds. We would, however, have preferred a door between the bedroom and en-suite rather than the curtain.
The easy access to the beach was great, and we went for a good few walks during our stay.
We would definitely recommend the Beach Sun Retreat to anyone and hope to return in the future.
