It’s a little bit Long Island down at Camber Sands these days

Or that’s the view of the Guardian, anyway.

They say: “To call Camber Sands Britain’s answer to the Hamptons is perhaps an overstatement (it’s got a Pontins for a start), but there’s definitely something a bit Long Island about the new wave of holiday houses popping up behind the dunes of this Sussex beach.

“The newest addition is Sea Gem, a gorgeous architect-designed house, all clean lines, glass walls, decking and sea breezes.

“It’s been designed with film crews in mind – Camber is a popular location for fashion and music industry shoots – but will be available for holiday rentals, too. Sleeps 8, from £3,000 per week.

If three grand’s a bit steep for you, you’ll find more affordable
