Marsh Mellow, Camber Sands, East Sussex
Marsh views and mellow holidays meet at the aptly named Marsh Mellow—a three-story town home just a 5-minute stroll over the dunes to the beach at Camber Sands.
Watch Romney Marsh sheep graze from the cosy lounge while sipping your favorite espresso drink from the Nespresso machine. Prepare pancakes on a lazy morning in the open plan kitchen with diner style bench seating and spend the day exploring 1066 Country. Then return to share a bottle of wine on the decked patio.
With four bedrooms, two baths and multiple spaces in which to gather, Marsh Mellow is wonderful for families, friends and other groups of up to 10 guests.
Dining & Lounging
Marsh Mellow’s entry level comprises the main gathering space. Meal-making is simple in the open-plan kitchen with everything you’ll need, including a washer/dryer, dishwasher and a Nespresso coffee machine. Adjacent, a dining bench sits beside French doors which open to the decked patio, adding a sea breeze to your feast.
The ground floor dual aspect living area boasts wonderful views over the marshland and the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and is home to the largest tv you have ever seen!. Cuddle up here on a roomy sectional sofa or two seater and watch your favourite programme on the flat screen.
Bed & Bath

Upstairs on the second floor, two further bedrooms share a family bathroom with bath and shower facilities. The second bedroom is a favourite with kids and teens (and kids at heart) thanks to its bright, quirky design and two twin beds. Marsh views are on full display in the third bedroom, which features a four-poster double bed and a nautical vibe perfectly suited to your stay beside the sea.

In Your Backyard
Discover the beauty on the doorstep of the White Sand community, wending along lanes past sheep dotted fields, orchards, vineyards, cobbled streets and castles. Stroll to the sea in less than five minutes.
Over the centuries, East Sussex & Kent coast—as the closest points to mainland Europe—have been the invader’s gateway to Britain, and as such, have witnessed some of the most important moments in the country’s history.
With such a rich past it’s no surprise that this corner of the country is teeming with places of historical significance—from ruins to castles, from ancient woodland to prehistoric coastline.
See where a monumental battle famously reshaped the nation at Battle of Hastings. Explore the moated 1385 Bodian Castle. Visit beautiful town of Rye with its cobbled streets and a history woven with seafaring tales of naval battles, violent storms, lifeboat heroics and smuggling. Step into famous literary settings in the neighbouring Cinque port towns, like Canterbury (Chaucer) and Rochester (Dickens).
Choose the tone for your holiday: Find an adrenaline rush while soaring above the sea on a kite-surfing excursion or hurtling down a zip wire through county parks. Or partake in more relaxing pastimes, like long walks along the many path and cycleways and even longer afternoons spent reclined on the beach. Or mix a bit of both.
For those of you who like a bit of culture, visit the many museums and galleries found throughout our historic towns. You’ll find vast collections of historical importance, fine art, landscape photography and theatre productions set in some of the most atmospheric locations.
