We stayed at Half Moon Cottage for a week in the Easter holidays. We are a family of four including two teenagers.The house was comfortable and nicely furnished. We were extremely lucky as the weather was fantastic and we were able to spend time in the small garden as well as on the beach.
The welcome pack of yummy goodies was very much appreciated .
I would recommend the house for a family of four but no more as the living area is cosy but it is not huge.
The beach is about a five minute walk from the house and even though Pontins is right next to the development the cottage is in,it did not affect us. We ate at The Green Owl which was a friendly pub.
Only improvement I would recommend is better WIFI which was poor and some padded loungers in the garden. If you are looking for a beach holiday and with the added bonus of being dog friendly then this is a great cottage for you.
A clean, warm and pleasant house, within 5 minutes walk of Camber Sands. Would sleep 5 comfortably - a bit small for our group of 6. There are two different photos of the master bedroom on the website which makes it look bigger than it is (although the written information is very accurate) but perfect for smaller groups and very warm, even in January!
Rented this cottage for our daughters 14th Birthday. Only an hour from where we live but wanted a complete change of surroundings. Beach short 5 minute walk away where we spent having fun on the dunes and in the water (dog included). Cottage itself is very well appointed and garden low maintenance (nautically themed). House immaculate and tastefully furnished. Lovely welcome pack when we arrived including locally made cake, cookies and milk in the fridge. Had a BBQ (gas type) Saturday night which was delicious and everything cooked to perfection. No shops appear to be within walking distance but I bought everything with us no worries there. All beds super comfy (including the sofa bed) so all in all a wonderful weekend!
We have a big family but half moon allowed for that. The cottage is beautifully furnished with everything you need for your stay. Even a stair gate and high chair were provided which made our stay a lot easier with my 18month old son.
We came to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. Both my parents would agree that we had a weekend of luxury. They certainly enjoyed having an ensuite attached to the master bedroom.
I have to say though my favourite part of the cottage was the garden which was surprisingly spacious. The children loved playing out there.
Overall a fantastic place to stay which I would definitely use again.
Our spirits were lifted as soon as we walked through the door! Half Moon Cottage is perfectly furnished and decorated for that seaside/nautical feel. White Sands village as a whole is very 'sea-sidey' and charming, and Half Moon Cottage itself sits very well within this - it has a nice relaxed atmosphere - both light and airy but also very cosy in the evenings, when the lovely white shutters are closed at all of the windows.
The kitchen/dining room is a great sunny spot (if you have the weather!) to sit and have breakfast overlooking the large private garden before going a walk on the long sandy beach, only 5 minutes away over the dunes. We soon discovered the cottage contains everything you could possibly want on a holiday - from board games, DVDs and plenty of books for those rainy days, to a hammock and barbecue in the garden for the sunny ones. Plus it's always good to have wifi! It was also great to have a family bathroom, en suite for the master bedroom and a downstairs cloakroom.
There was plenty to do in the area, with the picturesque town of Rye only a short drive away. Here we found lots of restaurants, cafes (we loved Edith's House and their resident French Bulldog) and antique shops for pottering. We also visited nearby Dungeness, which has a wonderful surreal atmosphere, and a long shingle beach - bleak and weird for brisk winter walks!
We cannot recommend Half Moon Cottage enough!
