Location

We reckon the first thing you’ll want to know is how far Dunescape is from the beach.

So, before we give you all the detail on exactly where we are, here’s one measure we use to tell people how close we are to the sands: we call it the Dunescape Beer to Beach Test.

So here is the evidence, shot from the west-facing main terrace just before sunset. Top those dunes you see in the picture and the beach and sea are before you. So it’s about 100 yards from beer to beach.

The red cross on this map shows our exact location:

A lot of Camber Sands self-catering holiday homes are nowhere near as close to the beach as Dunescape, so check carefully before booking to avoid disappointment. Indeed, one house that is at least 5 minutes walk from the beach has started using our name – don’t be fooled!

Our Essental Camber Sands Self-Catering Accommodation Guide shows where the main groupings of holiday homes – on The Suttons, Royal William Square and White Sand – are in relation to the beach.

Here’s some more information to help you get your bearings.

Dunescape is directly behind the beach and sand dunes at Camber, a small village just over two miles from the historic town of Rye. Situated in the South East of England, Camber is about half way between Hastings and Ashford.

From Ashford, trains on the picturesque Marshlink service to Rye take 20 minutes. The 100 bus connects at Rye station with arrivals from Ashford and Hastings/Brighton.
