By the sea all worries wash away

I’m a strong believer that the gorgeous seaside towns of England aren’t just perfect for summer holidays, but beautiful places to visit and enjoy all year round. And this is certainly true of Camber Sands in East Sussex.

At the beginning of this month I was lucky enough to stay in the beautiful Blue Beach Hut Chalet owned by Emma within the Camber Sands Holiday Park.

We had a two night stay, and when I say we; myself and my three boys. And because my husband couldn’t get time off work, we brought my Mum along for the trip too. My Mum is a big clean freak; and I lost count of the amount of times she said how clean the chalet was. She also gave a big thumbs up to the 200 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding.

We arrived on the Tuesday afternoon after a three hour car journey and easily found our chalet which was tucked away from the main caravan site. Although chilly when we first walked in, which was expected for November, the heaters very quickly kicked in and it instantly felt warm and cosy.

Emma has thought of everything; from a mini dishwasher to a high chair cleverly folded away in the cupboard. With two bedrooms; a double and a twin, and a sofa bed, we had plenty of room and all slept well – despite the howling winds on the first night. The travel cot fitted perfectly in the living area, which was great, as I was always going to sleep on the sofa bed and give my Mum the bedroom! Well it is nearly Christmas after all; and I’m after brownie points!!

As we didn’t arrive until after 3pm on the first day, and with the night’s now drawing in we didn’t have much time to explore. But we did have a great meal at the main caravan parks restaurant and got to check out the play park.

With only one full day in Camber Sands we made sure we made the most of it; we all had a swim in the onsite swimming pool, which was perfect for my boys. But would equally be great for older children and adults too. (extra charges apply).

And then we headed out to visit Rye and Rye Harbour and the amazing Camber Sands beach. Although a really windy day we got to experience the incredible stretch of unspoilt sandy beach. I had heard that it features one of the purest and longest dune systems on the South Coast, and the only one to be found in East Sussex. And wow; it didn’t disappoint, the beach was breathtaking. And I can see why it’s so popular.

There is a brilliantly fitted out kitchen at the hut with everything you need for a comfortable stay at any time of the year. So was perfect for making dinner for all five of us and we all snuggled up after a blustery day exploring the area. With the boys bathed and in bed, a cheekly bottle of wine was shared whilst watching TV in the warm and very cozy chalet.

We all absolutely loved our mini break and were very sad to leave, a huge thank-you to Emma for letting us stay. I can’t recommend the Beach Hut Lodges enough. So much so; if you fancy a winter stay too, mention Sand and Seagulls when you book and Emma will kindly give you 10% off your stay.

There are two Beach Hut Lodges owned by Emma, we stayed in the blue hut. The yellow hut looked equally lovely, and is just next door.
