“Superb cottage in great location”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I stayed here with my wife and parents in September.
We found the cottage to be immaculate and very well equipped
I can't think of anything that was missing
The location is great for Camber Sands and a good location for exploring the surrounding area

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Tauranga for a couple of days in December to escape the pre Christmas madness, and it was just what we needed.

There was a lovely welcome pack of cakes and goodies when we arrived and the house was so homely, we started to relax from the moment we unpacked.

The beach at Camber is fantastic, even on a dull day in December, can only imagine how great it must be in the summer.

We have never stayed at a house with such a well equipped kitchen! every utensil we needed and more! It was clean, warm and extremely comfortable.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas and we will certainly be making a return visit during the warmer months to explore more thoroughly.

Highly recommend!

Thank you for your lovely review of Tauranga, we are glad you enjoyed your pre-Christmas escape.

We are glad you felt that the kitchen was well equipped, it is something we aim at as we know that guests want to feel as at home as possible when they come to stay.

The beach is glorious all year round but we do hope you come back to stay again in the Spring/Summer as you get a different perspective on the area in the sunshine, as stunning as it still is in the winter months.

We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

“Superb location for families (and dogs)”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our second visit to Camber Sands and Tauranga. It proved to be another thoroughly enjoyable holiday, particularly as this holiday home also welcomes dogs.

Camber beach is within walking distance. Section B is open to dogs during the summer months. Some of the major attractions, such as Battle Abbey and Dover Castle, are also dog-friendly.

The house had everything we needed. Larger families (we are only three plus a Labrador) should probably opt for one of the larger properties within the portfolio of holiday homes. I think it is probably perfect for four people sharing.

If you need a larger supermarket, we would recommend the Sainsbury's Sedlescombe Road store north of Hastings (McDonald's is next door if you have to bribe the children before/after visiting some of the cultural attractions in the area).

Children: Lydd is approx. 20 minutes away by car for karting. Additionally, you might like to look up Action Watersports in Lydd for various activities (not cheap, but worth a visit).

Another point: the process of booking Tauranga online was very efficient, and the response time is excellent.

“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is the second time we have been in this wonderful house and we will return for more perfect holidays at Camber beach! The house is made up to a very high standard and has everything one needs during a holiday. We ( a familily with a 11 year old daughter and a black Labrador) enjoyed the dog friendly house and beach and the beautiful countryside. There is plenty to do for everyone: spending time on the beach, visiting Dover Castle, Battle or Rye, watersports, karting and so on. Looking forward to come back!
