About Us

One Sunday seven years ago we came for lunch with friends in Badger Way. We had a long walk on Camber Sands, an excellent lunch and saw the estate's show house. It had never been our intention to have a seaside house, but the next day we spoke to the agent and reserved Whitebeam Cottage, which we named after the whitebeam tree in the front garden.

We have spent many happy weekends and holidays here. In fact we came to love the area so much that we moved to the centre of Rye. Whether for a holiday, weekend break or special event, we are sure that you will love your time here too!

The area

With the only sand dune system in East Sussex, Camber Sands provides one of the region's most popular and picturesque beaches. Over five miles of beautiful golden sand provide the perfect setting for dogwalking, beachcombing or even kite-surfing for the more adventurous! The beautiful medieval town of Rye, a former bastion of the English coast, lies only three miles away, with a rich history and picturesque cobbled streets.
