Dining & Lounging
Brush off the sand and sink into two brown leather sofas in the stylish lounge, each given a little added cheer with colourful throw pillows. Or snuggle under a sheepskin throw in a window-side chair. Rustic coastal knick-knacks add an element of intrigue here, and a flat screen TV offers an option for nighttime entertainment.
Clean and pristine, the minimalist kitchen lets you whip up meals while enjoying floods of sunlight. Bring home Rye Bay scallops from the local market and sizzle a feast with a full suite of appliances and ample counterspace.
Then settle in around a glass top table for six overlooking the garden. Quirky pendant lighting and an assortment of houseplants give this gathering spot a hint of Rye Bay House’s cheeky charm.
Bed & Bath
Dreamy pastels and luxury linens transform each bedroom into a restful haven. There’s plenty of room and privacy for up to 8 guests between four bedrooms.
Unpack and unwind in the top-floor master suite, featuring a double bed and flat screen TV. Built-in storage means no living out of your suitcase, and an en-suite bath with walk-in shower lets you refresh in total comfort and privacy.
On this floor, you’ll also find the third bedroom with two twins and storage—the perfect set-up for small families.

A family bath with shower is located on the top floor, and a convenient water closet can be found on the ground floor.
Kick back in the sun in a decked garden that’s chock full of vintage style. Spread out in the lounge with a bottle of the area’s famous sparkling wine, or come out here with a novel for a quiet afternoon in the sun.
Make yourself comfortable with built-in wooden seating, a BBQ for alfresco meals, and a table for perching your appetizers or glass of fizz.

“Tolles Haus” April 2017
Rye Bay house ist ein wirklich tolles Haus mit sehr guter Ausstattung. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Zum Strand sind es 5 Minuten Fußweg. Rye und Hastings sind einen Besuch wert. Der Schnellzug nach London dauert von Ashford nur 37 Minuten. Richard, Sophie, Arthur & Oscar sind sehr nette Gastgeber. Wir kommen gerne wieder!
“we’ll be back” April 2017
Nice, well laid-out and well equipped house which was bright and warm. Our three children (12,10, 8) each had their own bedroom which was a rare treat on holiday and our large dog was able to find plenty of space. House was clean on arrival, had a small but pleasant garden (more than big enough for our singable) and Sophie helped us out immediately when we had a problem of our own making. Beach is fantastic especially as it was sunny most days (cold in the shade). Shops in walking distance are pretty limited for self-catering but we organised a tesco delivery for soon after arrival. Local take-aways are a bit pricey & not very good the nearer you get to the beach, but the fish & chips and Indian from the main road on the other side of Pontins were OK. We don’t often go back to the same place for holidays but this was fourth one to Camber and third with Beside the sea – we’ll be back.
“Perfect and faultless” Mar 2017
Rye Bay house is a beautiful house just a few minutes walk from the beautiful Camber Sands beach.We had a great time, the house was beautiful, so well equipped. Richard & Sophie ensured we had everything we could need, gave loads of info on the local area and made the stay perfect and faultless. We will be back!
“Its a perfect getaway for friends or family” Mar 2017
We had a fantastic stay at Rye Bay House. The house is very comfortable and exactly as described. And the location is perfect, only a couple of minutes walk and you’re on the beach. Its a perfect getaway for friends or family. Richard and Sophie were very friendly and always very quick with their responses to any questions I had. I thoroughly recommend a stay here.
