Named Marram Cottage after the grasses that cover the nearby dunes, the cottage has a very pretty white, weather-boarded exterior, complete with white picket fence in keeping with the fishermans’ style village that the development of White Sand – where the house is located – is reminiscent of.

The open kitchen, dining area with garden room (or grown-ups lounge as we like to think of it) is perfect for families and friends to socialise and dine, the full length south-facing french doors and windows lead onto the deck (with garden furniture) and lawn, so parents relaxing in the garden room, or preparing meals in the kitchen can keep an eye on little ones in the enclosed garden. For dining al fresco, there’s a table and chairs for six, a gas BBQ and a fire-pit.
Marram Cottage has 3 bedrooms; the master bedroom has a super king size bed, with comfy mattress topper and an en-suite shower room with basin and WC.

The house is very baby and child friendly and there are many games and play equipment to keep little people entertained including Little Tykes see-saw, a trike and ride-on, a paddling pool, play tent and tunnel, buckets and spades.

Marram Cottage Guest Book
“Best Holiday Cottage we have ever rented” April 2016
We recently booked a short weekend trip to Camber staying at Marram Cottage.
We were meant to be six people – but with two ill and staying at home – we were down to four.
On arrival the place was spotless. Way more spacious than the photos suggest and really lovely decoration and extra touches.
There was a welcome pack of juice, cake, biscuits and wine which was a great welcome.
You know those cottages you go to and you spend ages looking for a remotely sharp knife, or someone has to drink out of a mug as they only give you 3 wine glasses?
This is not that place. They have thought of everything – and there is surplus of all items – so you can really pick and choose. There was nothing we couldn’t find.
My 3 yr old daughter loved the toy chest and books and especially collecting the shells and listening to the sea – there are plenty around the house.
We wish we could have stayed an extra night so really hope to return at the end of summer or autumn.
“Marram Cottage was the perfect getaway” Dec 2015
Great service from Beside the Sea. Richard and Sophie were excellent, very helpful and very quick to respond to all emails. Excellent service.
Our short break over Christmas at Marram Cottage was the perfect getaway. We really all felt at home as soon as we arrived. The house was extremely well equipped and everything was to a high standard and quality. The house was also decorated beautifully with a real Christmas tree and lots of decorations around the house. If you want ‘home from home’ then Marram Cottage is the answer!
