“The perfect chilled seaside break with friends (and our 2 dogs!)”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We've just come back from a great stay at Coastguard's Beach House and it was just perfect for a few days relaxing break by the sea.

On arrival, the house was all ready for us (immaculately clean) and the hosts had left us some homemade chocolate cake and organic apple juice which was a nice touch. The house itself was very stylish in a relaxed beach/world travel way but also offered mod cons such as the power shower in the bathroom and very responsive central heating which we appreciated during April!

It was so close to the beach we could walk the dogs every morning or drive them a really short distance to run about on Camber Sands, and then at the end of the day we'd return to the house, get the wood burning stove roaring, pour a glass of wine and watch the sun set as the rabbits hopped about in front of the house.

We would definitely return again, just a great little escape to enjoy some great walking and to generally recharge the batteries.

“Fab location and comfy cottage”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a real get away from it all week with our 2 hounds. The cottage was comfortable and literally a stones throw away from the beautiful Camber beach. If you are looking for sea air long sea walks and tranquility then this is the place to go! The wifi went down well with my 17 year old son. Would definitely recommend and intend to return.

“Lovely”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Booked this for a small group for a surprise 40th weekend for a friend. Lovely house, nice location, everyone said how nice it was and even the dog loved it! The owners were understanding about a muddy paw print near the door as well. Would stay again.

“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
