The perfect family friendly cottages at Camber Sands

We welcome families with babies, toddlers and young children at our cottages...

We have always enjoyed the freedom a self catering holiday allows and have stayed in many different cottages, gites and villas with our own family since our son was just a few weeks old. As a result, we have learned first hand what makes a cottage holiday with babies and toddlers relaxing and trouble free and have put this experience to good use in running our own family friendly cottages at Camber Sands. 

We’ve not only included a lot of kit as standard at The Salty Dog and Rock Lobster but also concerned ourselves with the safety of your little ones whilst holidaying with us. Toddlers especially are naturally curious and eager to explore, fixed stair gates, child drawer and cupboard locks, socket covers and secure blind cords all help protect them from hazards.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at our family friendly cottages. To ease your arrival, we like to welcome all our guests personally, Jamie, who does most of our meet and greets is a parent himself so understands how important a calm start to the holiday is.

Daisy Dog is waiting to welcome our younger guests.

Daisy Dog looks forward to welcome your children. She will have already sent an email introducing herself and some suggestions of the exciting things your child(ren) might like to do during their stay. On arrival she will be waiting with a personal letter excited to enjoy their holiday with them.

We have been providing families with babies and toddlers with home from home holiday accommodation for over 15 years now (we are an experienced bunch) so you can relax and unwind from the moment you arrive and create those memories your children will carry with them forever.

What's nearby...

The beach, a 5 minute walk away, is sandy and vast, and the shallow lagoons left by the receding tide are ideal for small children to splash about in. The sand is perfect for sandcastle building and even when the tide is in there is still some sand to play in.

There is a children’s playground in the village, just a few minutes’ walk away from the house. 

 The Dunes Bar is just 5 minutes walk away and welcomes families with babies and children as do Rye Bay Cafe and The Clam.

Read about one family’s holiday with us in this article on Tonbridge and Hildenborough Mums website: Lovely Long Weekend at Camber Sands.

In addition to being a Mum, I have nearly 20 years experience of working with babies and pre-school children. We have also been on many self-catering holidays ourselves so have a good idea of what makes a holiday with a young family fun, relaxing and stress free. Please do call me if you have any queries. 


So you can see, families with babies and small children will find pretty much everything taken care of – our guests have commented that having so much kit at the cottages means that they have more room in the car for the things they really want to bring! The Salty Dog and Rock Lobster are furnished, equipped and presented to a very high standard with hotel quality bed linen, towels and toiletries provided.  We really have tried to think of everything! We also welcome dogs at both our cottages – after all they are part of the family!

Mum, Dad, Florence, Harrison and our dog Nelson have enjoyed long walks, ice creams, fish and chips, golf, Rye, sandcastles and generally relaxing. Lovely stay and our first time in Camber Sands.
