Very Good

“Lovely house close to the Beach”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2020

We really enjoyed our stay. Being less than 10 minutes walk to the beach was great. The beds were very comfortable and the house was very well equipped. The instructions for finding the location were very clear. Would definitely recommend to others.

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2016

We stayed here for a long weekend with our two springers, DJ and Jasper. The cottage is in a good location with walks to the beach just less than 10 min away. The cottage has everything you need, just like home from home. Very clean and comfortable beds. The welcome basket was much appreciated. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and we hope to visit again.

“Great location, very clean”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

Very nice house close to a wonderful beach. Hastings and Rye are in a short distance by car. Even a trip to London is possible and very cheap if you buy a super off peak ticket.

“Lovely house - Highly Recommended”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

We had a really enjoyable stay at the beach retreat. The house is very clean & well equipped, with all the home comforts you would need. This made for a real ‘home from home’ feeling. The location is perfect on a very nice & quiet modern estate & just a short walk to the beach. We would definitely recommend the beach retreat to family & friends & plan to return next year.

“lovely place to stay at”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2016

A cosy and lovely place to stay at, we got a nice welcome basket, kitchen equipment was sufficient. The beach is great and not far away.

“cosy cottage in a great location”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2016

We really enjoyed our short stay in this lovely, well-equipped cottage. It is in a great location for the beach where we swam every day and could also walk our dog. The sand dunes are amazing. It's also only a short drive from Dungeness, Rye and Rye Harbour, where we had a lovely meal in the William the Conqueror pub. We would definitely recommend Beach Retreat and hope to return.

“Wonderfully relaxing, definitely recommend”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2016

We loved our stay at Beach Retreat, thank you Ian and Nicola. The cottage is perfect for a family of 4 (and a dog!) for a week. It is clean and in very good condition, located in the lovely Whitesands development of Camber, and fitted with everything we needed. The beach really is only a 10-minute walk away, so we could easily pop back and forth during the day. The beach itself is beautiful, with soft sand, rolling dunes and shallow waves for the kids and dog to play in. The lovely town of Rye is a 15-minute drive away and definitely worth a visit on the windy or overcast days, not ideal for the beach. We happily recommend Beach Retreat and hope to return one day for another visit.
