In less than the time it takes to grab your wetsuit you will you’ll find yourself upon the rolling dunes and seemingly endless sandy beach here at Lark Rise at Camber Sands. Lark Rise is a cool architect designed beach house with superb entertaining spaces, hot tub and designer ‘hotel’ touches.
Here you’re so close to the beach that those far -reaching panoramas just topping the sandy dunes seem to start at its front door. There’s no better secluded spot to inspire a surf session or just a walk along the long wide beach with your four legged friend for company.
Well-travelled types will love the well thought out funky surfer shack vibe - inspired by Long Island and Montauk in the USA. The interiors are handcrafted using rough cut materials and combine elements of timber and oxidised tin complete the look. If that wasn’t enough the state of the art contemporary kitchen with stunning designer touches brings luxury within reach. The dramatic vaulted ceilings meanwhile ensure a light and airy feel … some might say more California than Camber.

Camber is a well known and famous beach that sits in the 1066 country area near to Rye and Dungeness. The region has a surfing vibe and features lazy days on stunning sandy beaches and enjoyed by families, adults, students and well just about anyone.
Camber has watersports on the sea and also in nearby Lydd on the marshes. Kite surfing as well and surking, kayaking and so much more can be enjoyed along the wide sweeping waters.
For years the area known as Rye Bay, which stretches from Dungeness in Kent to Fairlight in Sussex via Camber Sands and Rye, has attracted creative types with its big skies and wild landscapes — perhaps most famously the film-maker Derek Jarman, who lived in Prospect Cottage on Dungeness. Now there is a new wave of artists, architects and interior designers who call the area their home.

Unique on the beach holiday stay 5/5
As you arrive down this hidden a way sandy track of a road, rolling along on sandy waves to the most perfect destination. This is the best bit of Camber if like us you want to avoid hilly climbs up sand dunes. It is a flat walk to the beach and takes but a minute. Lark Rise is a tardis of a building, you walk into a huge open plan kitchen, dining, living room. You feel as if you have been transported to Montauk. The peaceful garden has a perfect end of garden cabin, a little ( actually not so little ! ) self contained studio. A hot tub bubbling away ready to invite you in. It has everything you might need, well equipped wet rooms, huge soft towels. Enough space for the 6 of us to not feel on top of each other. We ordered a Waitrose delivery for our food shop but there are shops at the end of the road, dont forget Camber Landing for your morning coffee and lunchtime beer. They also have fresh sourdough and focaccia delivery on Wednesday. I hardly want to reveal what a gem it is just in case we cant book next time !

Weekend in Camber 4.8/5
Lark Rise was the perfect place to spend a few days in Camber. With the beach just a few minutes walk away, the location was fabulous. That said, we barely left the cottage as it was such a lovely place to be! We will be back.

Lark Rise 4.8/5
A beautiful and well presented home close to the beach in Camber. Rye is 3 miles away and has the shops and cafes/restaurants that are missing from Camber. But Lark Rise is a beautiful home to say in and approx 200m from the beach

Fantastic accommodation in a great location 5/5
Lark Rise is a fantastic property, very well designed, a great layout, with everything you could need and more. My family and I were so relaxed and comfortable at the property. Great to have a place to stay so near to the lovely beach but still with privacy. Would highly recommend!

A wonderful blue sky (mostly) week before autumn arrives. The house and garden are perfect. Loved the whole feel of both - style & comfort combined. The beach is amazing! Special mention to The Owl for incredible food. Hopefully we shall return.
Haines Family | 21 September 2023
We had an incredibly relaxing short break for February halt term. Could feel the stresses of life fade away as soon as we settle into Lark Rise. We were lucky with the weather, so got to take advantage of the beautiful beach, which is so close by. The accommodation is so comfortable and had everything we needed and more....thanks!
The Whytocks | 09 February 2023
What an amazing place and a great venue for a short family vacation! Lots of things to do locally, with the local pub (Great food & craft beer) and a fab visit to Rye. Also a fantastic place to run, although the winds were strong - Hope to be back soon!!
The Jarvis | 03 February 2023
We spent a wonderful Christmas here as a family! Thank you for making the house so welcoming and responded to our questions so promptly. It was wonderful to just enjoy long walks on the beach with our dog. We would love to return again for another wonderful stay!
Nugent Family | 23 December 2022
Had a fantastic week with some gorgeous weather (luckily). We really enjoyed Camber Sands and The Old Light House at Dungenesss. The house was a wonderful place to come back to and relax every evening - Thank you!
