This is a very special place to stay, so light and airy. We were a party of four generations. Youngest 10 months, the eldest 98 years. The house catered to us all. The sand pit is a great addition, the youngest members of the group the eldest being 8 years really enjoyed this. The 98 year old using a walking frame was able to gain full access to thRead moree ground floor with enough room in all rooms to move freely. We had a fabulous week and hope to book again next year.

This is a wonderful house for a large family party. The dcor is smart and light, the furniture very comfortable, and the house has everything you need. The garden is well enclosed for small children and the large sandpit was the biggest hit of our stay with small children. It's very easy to walk to the beach. Altogether this was a memorable holidayRead more because the accommodation was so good. Hide

Had a fantastic week at Shell House. Perfect location - we really enjoyed our evening strolls to the beach so the kids could play in the dunes or paddle in the water. The house was perfect for our needs (family of 10) with large rooms and the separate snug/tv room was a great bonus. The communication with James was excellent throughout.

We had a great weekend. The property was bigger than we expected, lovely and light and beautifully decorated inside. It was all clean and very easy to live in - we were 6 adults and a couple of teens and there was plenty of space to all sit, eat and get away from each other! We have friends who live at the other end of Camber, and it was a very easRead morey 10 min walk between houses. And perfect for the beach. Thank you, we'll definitely be booking again. x Hide

We loved Shell cottage at Camber. The house is huge, extremely well appointed and a two minute walk from the beach. There is a lovely outside area with seating and a sandpit for children. We would highly recommend.

If you want a holiday property for an extended family group with a real beach-hut feel to it then this is the place for you. I liked the all-white paintwork with featured decorations Lots of charming rustic character and well equipped. Excessive rain both before and during our stay had left the 2min walk along to the beach well puddled, but the cloRead morese boarded wooden flooring (also painted white) was easy to sweep through from collected sand. Owners were most helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Hide

The property was first class. Lovely location so we could take the 2 dogs and they could enjoy the beach every day. The weather wasnt great but due to the proximity to the beach it didnt matter. Look forward to staying here again.

Shell House is a wonderful spot. It's beautifully decorated and filled with everything you might need for both kids and adults. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking for lots of people with little touches like kids crockery making everything very easy. James, the host, was super helpful and responsive. We couldn't have had a better stay. The onlRead morey thing to note is that the roads leading to the house aren't well maintained (not the hosts fault) which make access on foot during wet weather hard Hide

Reviewed by Anthony, 22nd December 2017

The house is great; the heating worked very well; the bedrooms were spacious, the bedding of high quality; we loved the location near to the beach. It would be a great summer retreat! But in winter you need a vehicle that can manage a sandy track and cope with deep puddles.
