About The Salty Dog & Rock Lobster

The child-friendly Salty Dog and Rock Lobster Cottages are located just a few minutes stroll from Camber Sands beach, a two-and-a-half mile stretch of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes. They are in a fab location for a very easy self-catering holiday close to the sea in a cottage with all you might need.

The Salty Dog and Rock Lobster cottages are located just a few minutes stroll from Camber Sands beach, a two-and-a-half mile stretch of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes. The cottages have enclosed sunny gardens and have both been equipped to a very high standard achieving a 4 star gold rating by Enjoy England.

Genuinely family friendly, The Salty Dog and Rock Lobster are equipped with travel cots, high chairs, stair gates, steam steriliser etc. etc. to make holidaying with a young family as stress-free as possible. There are also plenty of indoor and outdoor toys and games. Our younger guests also receive a special welcome from Oscar Owl who sends them a letter with some luggage labels and stories to listen to on the journey. Oscar is then waiting at the cottage to meet the children with personal welcome.

The Salty Dog has three bedrooms sleeping up to 6 adults. The accommodation is spread over three floors with a playroom on the ground floor adjacent to the kitchen diner. The three bedrooms each have zip-and-link beds with space for a cot, the master bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There is also a garage where any sports equipment, bikes and buggies can be stored.

Rock Lobster has two bedrooms sleeping up to 4 adults, with zip-and-link beds and space for a cot in each bedroom. There is a large, secure shed where any sports equipment etc can be stored and off road parking for two cars.

There are a several dining options  and local shops within a short walk of the cottages. The picturesque town of Rye, just 3 miles away, has a wide choice of restaurants, cafes, tearooms and inns, as well as a range of independent shops. The local farm shop is also a good place to stock up on provisions.

Our guests are met personally on arrival and there is always someone on call nearby to help with any problems or just to give advise during the stay. Any stair gates, cots, high chairs and bed guards requested will be set up ready before you arrive. We can also often arrange a CRB checked babysitter should you require it during your stay.

Here’s what some of our guests have said….

“A perfect weekend getaway. So nice to visit somewhere that claims to be “child-friendly” and actually is! You seem to have thought of everything (the foam bed guards are genius and we’re going to buy some now) and it made staying here with our 3 year old very easy.”

“We were here with our 3 little children for our first holiday as a family of five. Though it was pretty busy with all the normal stuff, we have had plenty of holiday fun. The play room and the garden toys have been enjoyed very well. And the short distance to the beach was walked plenty of times. The house had everything we needed; a sure recommendation to others.”
