Harbour Lights Holiday Cottage, Camber Sands, East Sussex
Just a five-minute walk from the beach is Harbour Lights, a self-catering holiday cottage that embodies the spirit of Camber Sands. Decorated in coastal accents and adorned with photos of Camber snapped by local photographer Clive Sawyer, this beach escape makes you feel like you’re beside the sea in every room.
Follow the sunlight out to the private pebbled garden, where there’s room to dine, lounge, and gather. Cosy up around the fire pit or serve seafood feasts at a table for six.
With the beach so close you can feel its breezes, and historic Rye just a 10-minute drive away, there’s always something to do and see just outside your door.
