On entering Beach Haven, the large hallway allows plenty of room for beach bags, shoes and all the paraphernalia you might take to the beach. During the mid and low season you could store bikes, wellies and lots of coats.
As you walk up the stairway to the first floor, the space opens out to a double height room with a wall of windows facing the dunes of Camber beach. Even on a dull day, this room is flooded with light. This is an open plan space with a living area containing a large leather corner sofa, wood burning stove, and sideboard, containing artefacts collected and found.
At the rear of the space, the kitchen is simple and modern with a hardwood worktop bar that allows for plenty of social interaction whilst cooking. There is a fridge and freezer in the corner next to an electric hob with extractor. The sink faces into the living area and there is plenty of workspace for chopping food. Alongside the kitchen is a dining table, which seats 10.
We have 2 king size beds, 2 singles (can be turned into king size), 1 double and a bunk bed. All have excellent mattresses. All the rooms have wall mounted electric heaters, which heat the rooms very quickly and are temperature controlled.
The half-acre garden is surrounded by fencing and architectural plants and shrubs, which shield it and give maximum protection for those with young children. The patio holds a large outdoor dining table which comfortably seats 10 people.
Take a short walk across the road and take the first path between the dunes straight ahead. When you reach the top, you will have a spectacular view from Rye Harbour to Dungeness, depending on visibility. Whatever the weather, the view is never less than stunning. Total journey time is 3 minutes.
