The kids (both large and small) will find plenty to keep them amused in the playroom be it table football, toys, a movie or just chilling on the sofa with a good book. A holiday is not a holiday without a good night's sleep. Whether you're visiting for the weekend, a short break or an extended stay you will love our luxurious beds; there are two super-kings and a king-size, all of which can be split into singles. Whatever your choice you can look forward to crisp hotel quality bed linen, fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. We have also thought carefully about our younger guests, we have bed guards and cots (but more of this later). The high standard has not gone un-noticed by Visit Britain, who have awarded The Salty Dog Four Stars and a Gold Award for “exceptional levels of quality, comfort and cleanliness in bedrooms and bathrooms, and outstanding levels of customer care”. In summer, the south-facing and fully enclosed garden comes into it's own. A great place to enjoy barbecuing that fresh fish you bought earlier in the day, or to enjoy a glass of local English wine bought from one of the nearby vineyards. The prefect end to the perfect day! The sand on the nearby beach is perfect for sandcastles and lagoons left by the receding tide, and often warmed by the sun, are the perfect place for children to splash around. The ideal place to spend your family seaside holiday or short break. Pack up a picnic - you will find a picnic rug, beach chairs, cool box with freezer blocks, thermos, wind-break and beach toys - and head off to the beach for some good old fashioned seaside fun. As parents ourselves we have been on many self catering holidays and so have a good idea of what makes a holiday with a young family fun, relaxing and stress-free. Genuinely family friendly, The Salty Dog is equipped with travel cots, high chairs, dining booster seats, bed guards, stair gates, steam steriliser, socket covers, baby listening monitor, children's cutlery, plates bowls and beakers, toddler step, potty.... as well plenty of indoor, garden and beach toys. We welcome every member of your family at The Salty Dog and that includes your dogs. Our own springer spaniel, Chloe, has worked hard to ensure that the needs of your canine companions are anything but forgotten. So we know exactly what makes a self-catering holiday with your four-legged friend relaxing and fun. So while you are enjoying your tea, scones and homemade jam your dog can tuck into some complimentary chews and biscuits. We provide dog bowls and a few toys but ask that you bring your dog's own bed and towels. The beach is a short walk away, less than five minutes when being towed by an eager hound, and even in the height summer there are miles of sand to be explored and seagulls to be chased. On the way back you can call in at the local pub, who welcome dogs and offer a selection of real ales and tasty home cooked food. They will even provide a bowl of water for your dog. The spacious, open-plan accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms, each with zip-link beds, with en-suite shower room to the main bedroom; family bathroom; lounge; kitchen dining room; children's playroom and WC. The fully enclosed garden is ideal for kids and dogs to play in and any sports equipment can be stored securely in the garage. To the side of the house is an outdoor tap with hose for showering sand off dogs (and kids) after playing on the beach. The medieval town of Rye with it's cobbled streets and quaint shops is only 3 miles away. This pretty little hilltop town, once the haunt of smugglers, is steeped in history now home to art galleries, interesting shops, inns and restaurant Easily accessible from mainland Europe via the channel tunnel East Sussex is the ideal destination for a holiday or short break with a true taste of England at its best. Historic Castles, English gardens both traditional and modern, the rolling South Downs, chalk cliffs and sandy beaches, we have it all here in the south east. Whether is is a bucket and spade family beach holiday,a golfing break, an activity holiday or just a relaxing break you are after, you will find it here.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A great location and beautiful home
A perfect location for spending time at the beach as well as visiting nearby places such as Rye or having a lovely meal at the Gallivant. After a day out it was lovely to go back to The Salty Dog - felt like coming home and relaxing (if that's possible with a 3 year old)! We would definitely recommend.

Lovely dog friendly escape
We had a marvellous time (4 girls and 3 doggies) very well equipped and looked after, close to the dog friendly beach as well which is great. Very comfortable rooms and everything you could need for a week away, a real home from home! Rye is also very dog friendly. We had really hot weather so did have to limit the walks with our 4 legged friends which is a shame as there are some lovely ones around the area. Overall would thoroughly recommend The Salty Dog!

We are so pleased you had such a good time. The Salty Dog is the perfect place for a break with dogs and Camber Sands beach is just prefect for them to run around. There are also a good number of countryside walks as well from the cottage, plenty for another stay! We hope to welcome you back again sometime.

Well equipped, cozy, family home
Everything from booking, meeting on arrival and enjoying all that Salty Dog has to offer was well appreciated by all in our party, including the young children and the dog. We enjoyed it being well equipped for dining in and relaxing of an evening. It's well located for lovely walks on the great sandy beach. The range of baby equipment was great; the huge range of toys was most appreciated by the kids. What sets this place apart is the level of detail to support a perfect holiday. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Fabulous accommodation
We have just spent 4 nights at the Salty Dog and it was fabulous. The house was spotlessly clean, warm, welcoming and well equipped. Every tiny detail has been thought of. We loved the short walk to the beautiful Camber beach where we walked the dogs and flew the kite, we wandered around the pretty streets of Rye and had fun playing Crazy Golf and drinking cocktails in Hastings ! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a few days on the Sussex coast. We had 3 teenagers with us, who enjoyed being able to take themselves off to the beach whenever they wanted to, as well as playing on the football table and watching TV. We will definitely return !

Xmas stay
Four day Christmas stay at the Salty Dog ,Met on arrival by housekeeper who gave advise of all services and was very helpful and accomodating,.. Food and drink hamper on table when arrived was a lovely gesture. The house had every possible utility , for cooking and a restful stay. Great communications across the stay with nothing too much trouble. Lovely local pubs 2 mins walk , with great beach within same distance.. 40 minute walk gets you to Rye along a safe hard standing footpath. Overall would highly recommend the Salty Dog as a place to stay at any time of the year.

Perfect for a family getaway
Having booked The Salty Dog to celebrate my 30th with my family, it's fair to say that it exceeded our expectations and then some! Having my 6 month old nephew with us, everything he could possibly want (and his parents) for a relaxing holiday was brilliant and means we've found a great place to go in the future when he grows up. The house was a stones throw from the beach and on a busy bank holiday weekend it was great not having to battle for parking. We used the decking area and BBQ in the evenings and again there was everything you could possibly want. One of the best stocked holiday home we've been too. Carol and her team were great contacting us and there was even a birthday cake for me and fresh scones waiting for us after our long journey. Perfect for children, but equally for couples looking for a getaway in a beautiful setting. Only downside is we have to wait to come back again!

Excellent, great place for families
We had a 4 day stay with our 2 grandsons aged 5 & 6. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The boys could go into the playroom and occupy themselves with the many games available or watch one of the videos in the TV lounge when 'the oldies' needed a break. The house was perfect, the owner has thought of everything to make the holiday a success. The boys loved it. The sandy beach and dunes were barely a 5 minute walk away and there were a number of cycle tracks nearby. There were also plenty of interesting and fun places to visit in the area. All in all an excellent holiday base and we would certainly recommend it.

Perfect Location
Perfect house for a family holiday including the dog. 5 minute walk from the beach and a half hour walk to Rye harbour. Fabulous accommodation and great hosts. We couldn't recommend this house highly enough. This was our second stay and we will definitely be staying again.

Perfect UK beach based family break
We had a wonderful week at The Salty Dog. Carol (the owner) was in regular contact in advance of our stay, even sending the kids a note from Daisy Dog saying that she was looking forward to meeting them! The location is fantastic as it is just a short walk to the beach at Camber Sands and only a short drive to the lovely town of Rye. The house is set up with everything you need and we all had a wonderful week with sunny days at the beach and lots of lovely meals out at the restaurants and pubs near by. We will definitely be back!
