“Great place for a family getaway!”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We went as a three generation family group staying in the Lantern and Beachhouse. Both cottages were delightful and so well equipped. Everything you could ask for, especially the wood burning stove with abundant fuel. We were hoping for a spell of good weather but got a blustery Romney Marsh welcome. It didn't matter because we were happy to stay indoors and venture out in small bursts. The beach is beautiful and the surroundings atmospheric. The dog loved it too. The coastal defence work didn't impinge. The surrounding area has a lot to offer in terms of interest and variety, from the unique environment of Dungeness and around to historic Rye. Many thanks to Richard and Sophie who responded immediately to our call for help in understanding some of the less obvious intricacies of the heating etc! We would thoroughly recommend this and hope to go again and be able to take advantage of the area at the back and the BBQ.

Thank very much for taking the time to post a review of your stay. It was lovely to meet you. Coastguards Cottages are a fantastic place for a break all year round whether the sun is shining or snuggled up infront of the log burner as the weather goes wild on a winters day! We look forward to welcoming you back very soon! Richard & Sophie

“Perfect location and fabulous cottage!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The cottage is fantastic, spacious and provides excellent facilities. I booked through Beside The Sea Holidays and they were very easy to book through and accommodating. Would highly recommend the place and company to anyone else.

“Perfect Cottage in Perfect Location”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Coastguards Beach House was the perfect accomodation for us. We have a young daughter and two dogs and wanted to be near the beach but also to feel remote. The setting is stunning, part of gorgeous terrace, with the most expansive and beautiful beach literally at the bottom of the drive. The accomodation was immaculate, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could wish for: wi-fi and dishwasher to a bar-b-que and an open log fire. We felt as though we had the luxury of a hotel combined with the privacy of a country retreat. At the end of the day, actions speak louder than words: we will be booking again next year.

“Quite simply, the perfect place to get away from it all...”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The house itself is beautifully decorated and very well equipped - we were completely relaxed within five minutes of arriving. As for the location, the sea wall is 30-seconds' walk away, and the beach the other side wonderfully quiet with loads of sand for the kids to play on when the tide is out. A wonderful week - we'll be going back.

“Amazing... house is gorgeous, beach is wild and beautiful! Absolute must!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a perfect getaway... booking again for next year! For those wishing to get away from it all, this is the best. Beautiful walks along the beach to Dungeness, sandy dunes at Camber, and lovely pubs in Rye. The house itself is lovely, very well equipped and interesting decor. You will love it!
