“Beach bums for the weekend” Sept 2014
Rented this cottage for our daughters 14th Birthday. Only an hour from where we live but wanted a complete change of surroundings. Beach short 5 minute walk away where we spent having fun on the dunes and in the water (dog included). Cottage itself is very well appointed and garden low maintenance (nautically themed). House immaculate and tastefully furnished. Lovely welcome pack when we arrived including locally made cake, cookies and milk in the fridge. Had a BBQ (gas type) Saturday night which was delicious and everything cooked to perfection. No shops appear to be within walking distance but I bought everything with us no worries there. All beds super comfy (including the sofa bed) so all in all a wonderful weekend!, Clare
“One of the best holiday homes we ever booked” July 2014
We had a great holiday at Half Moon Cottage. The cottage is really beautiful and cosy and it was one of the best holiday homes we ever booked. And as you most obviously know we had wonderful weather during the two weeks we spent in Camber. It proved the common german prejudice about the english weather completely wrong. As we spent a lot of time at the sunny and sandy beach the availability of a washing machine at Half Moon turned out very helpful. I think this is worth to mention on your webpage as this might be interesting to know especially for families with children. Finally it was all in all a marvellous holiday with all the interesting and historic sightseeing places and towns (like Bodiam Castle, Hastings and especially Rye) around, a beautiful and clean beach with dunes and London close by. We can definitely recommend the area around Camber and take a return for another holiday into consideration. Thanks for your service and kind regards, Andreas
“Half moon cottage was perfect for our family weekend” June 2014
We have a big family but half moon allowed for that. The cottage is beautifully furnished with everything you need for your stay. Even a stair gate and high chair were provided which made our stay a lot easier with my 18month old son.
We came to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday. Both my parents would agree that we had a weekend of luxury. They certainly enjoyed having an ensuite attached to the master bedroom.
I have to say though my favourite part of the cottage was the garden which was surprisingly spacious. The children loved playing out there.
Overall a fantastic place to stay which I would definitely use again. Claire
“A lovely, relaxing seaside cottage :-)” Mar 2014
Our spirits were lifted as soon as we walked through the door! Half Moon Cottage is perfectly furnished and decorated for that seaside/nautical feel. White Sands village as a whole is very ‘sea-sidey’ and charming, and Half Moon Cottage itself sits very well within this – it has a nice relaxed atmosphere – both light and airy but also very cosy in the evenings, when the lovely white shutters are closed at all of the windows.
The kitchen/dining room is a great sunny spot (if you have the weather!) to sit and have breakfast overlooking the large private garden before going a walk on the long sandy beach, only 5 minutes away over the dunes. We soon discovered the cottage contains everything you could possibly want on a holiday – from board games, DVDs and plenty of books for those rainy days, to a hammock and barbecue in the garden for the sunny ones. Plus it’s always good to have wifi! It was also great to have a family bathroom, en suite for the master bedroom and a downstairs cloakroom.
There was plenty to do in the area, with the picturesque town of Rye only a short drive away. Here we found lots of restaurants, cafes (we loved Edith’s House and their resident French Bulldog) and antique shops for pottering. We also visited nearby Dungeness, which has a wonderful surreal atmosphere, and a long shingle beach – bleak and weird for brisk winter walks!
We cannot recommend Half Moon Cottage enough! Caroline
“Lovely homely house, dog friendly and close to beach” Dec 2013
We had a lovely stay here over New Year. The weather was mostly foul but the house was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The beach is a five minute walk away and once the tide is out you can walk for miles on the sand. Our dog loved chasing for a ball for hours! We visited the Green Owl pub which is very friendly and does good food. The surrounding area is beautiful, Rye is nearby which has many pubs and restaurants, although we didn’t have time to visit any. We did visit the Queens Head in Icklesham, about twenty minutes away, which we would recommend. Altogether we would thoroughly recommend this house and area to families, especially those with dogs! Gillian
“Perfect, relaxed winter weekend away in a lovely, clean, well-furnished cottage” Dec 2013
My husband and I stayed in Half Moon Cottage, Camber Sands for a weekend in December.
The cottage itself was perfect: comfortable, warm and homely and had everything we needed. Its location was ideal for the beach – just across the road – which was great for our early morning run/walk – probably the best way to use the beach in December! The drive to Rye takes 5 minutes and we spent a very happy afternoon wandering in and out of the many independent shops followed by a well deserved (we thought) cream tea! We ate a wonderful dinner at The Beach Bistro – 5 min walk – and stumbled back in the cold to the welcome warmth of the cottage. I would highly recommend Half Moon Cottage and fully intend to return with my kids to try out the summer version!
“A great holiday at Half Moon Cottage – we can’t wait to return!” Oct 2013
We have just returned from a excellent holiday at Half Moon Cottage – as soon as we arrived we knew we would enjoy it!
The cottage is beautifully furnished, spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage space (and an extra handshower over the bath!). We felt at home as soon as we arrived.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t very favourable but it was no hardship to relax in the cottage (books games and DVDs all provided) while waiting for the rain to stop so that we could enjoy the local walks, especially along the fabulous beach and visit the neighbouring towns, Rye and Battle were our favourites. There are plenty of good places to eat in the locality – the Bell in Iden particularly recommended and the local pub is well worth a visit. There is always something to do whatever the weather.
We will definitely be returning – but next time we hope to have better weather just so we can take advantage of the large private garden, well equipped with barbeque and hammock! David & Jane
“2 fantastic weeks” Aug 2013
Dear Richard, thanks again for recommending this splendid cottage – the initial wait was more than worth it. We spent 2 fantastic weeks in Camber sands with the family and we absolutely loved it! We have enjoyed the sun and the beach, have visited nearby bodiam castle, hastings and sissinghurst and of course rye. We have also done two trips to London (via high-speed from Ashford) – for all these different activities the cottage is situated ideally and we would highly recommend it to anyone interested in spending time in this region.
Please give our warmest regards to the owners – we felt very much at home in their lovely cottage so far away from home :-). Kind regards from Munich, Kathrin
