Reviewed May 31, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house had everything we needed and was obviously professionally managed and spotless.
Being dog friendly was also a bonus!

Thank you for your lovely review. As owner I manage the cottage, taking all the bookings myself and getting to know guests requirements. I also have an excellent team of cleaners and John, who does all the meet and greets, without whom I would be lost. We pride ourselves on offering a personal service. Thank you.

“Beautiful cottage, very family friendly”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a wonderful stay at Rock Lobster. A beautiful house in immaculate condition, sparkingly clean and really well appointed with everything you could need - including dishwasher tablets, washing powder, soap and moisturiser. The milk, tea and coffee, scones and delicious home made jam (to take home too!) were a really thoughtful touch. The beds were very comfy and it felt like a real home from home. We were with our 2.5 year old daughter and everything for her had been thought of - toys, books, bed guards, cutlery and plates and stair gates. We had a very friendly welcome from John and the owners were so helpful in advance in sorting out queries and afterwards in returning our deposit. The White Sand development is great: really quiet and just minutes from the beach. This is our second trip to Camber but our first staying at Rock Lobster and we will definitely be back! Highly recommended.

“Top class dog friendly holiday house”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The two of us had a wonderful stay with our two dogs at Rock Lobster. The standard of accommodation is top class, all nicely decorated and very well equipped. The little back garden is secure for the dogs too, and a smashing sun trap. We'll recommend! We are going back later in the year.

“Extremely comfortable little house by the sea”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I stayed at Rock lobster with my teenage daughters and three dogs for a week. Normally when you go away with dogs you end up staying in an old play with mismatched furniture which always seems to have a slight smell so this new modern house made a great change!
Clean, comfortable and well equipped it was the perfect setting for a get away by the sea.
Just a short walk from a lovely long sandy beach which the dogs were allowed on.
Would recommend this cottage to anyone (even has high chairs/steamers etc. for the little ones) would look at staying again.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write this review. We take special care to ensure that our cottages are kept in tip top condition and take extra time to clean after dogs have stayed (that is why we charge an extra £20 for a booking with dogs). We think everyone appreciates staying in a beautiful and clean cottage whether with dogs or without. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Gorgeous Cottage in Great Location!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My partner & I stayed at Rock Lobster for two nights to celebrate my birthday, we were greeted by John who was incredibly friendly/helpful and made us feel welcome!
The cottage was beautifully kept, clean and in such a fantastic location, just a stones throw from the beach.
We bought our dog along and we're so pleased to see that the garden was dog friendly and had no place for her to escape (she has a habit of going out to explore!)
We were even left a welcome gift of scones & homemade jam, a lovely extra! Would recommend to all, a lovely stay, thank you.

“Perfect weekend & perfect holiday home ...........”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just spent the weekend at Rock Lobster with my man & 2 french bulldogs & we all had the best time ..... Carol the owner was so helpful prior to the stay , the met by John who told us of local dog friendly places, short routes to the beach & was generally great ! We were lucky enough to have a cold but sunny weekend on the beautiful beach & antique shops of Rye. Couldnt recommend this cottage enough, perfect home from home with beach on the doorstep . xx

“Perfect break with our toddler son”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A real home away from home - I have fond memories of whole summers spent at Camber Sands as a child and couldnt wait to give our small son similar memories. Rock Lobster was perfect - we felt instantly at home. The decor was similar to our own home infact and my son was very happy climbing into the ercol chair to cuddle the resident snuggly owl!

Well thought out child-friendly features - there were top and bottom stair gates and even sippy cups and plastic bowls ready in the cupboards and a comfy high chair in the under stairs cupboard.

Lovely comfy beds, a brilliant outdoor area and barbecue which we made use of. Was really impressed that there was a cupboard with toddler toys in the living room and even a shed in the outdoor area with buckets and spades for our use. The arrival crusty bread, milk and delicious home made marmalade was a lovely touch - Alovely idea that you could take it home although we actually ate the whole jar during our stay it was so popular!

Really friendly chap who gave us the key and showed us around. Sorry I have forgotten your name!

Will hope to return next year with my own Mum and Dad in tow so we can relive some family memories whilst making new ones.
