With an exclusive location and understated style, Barefoot Beach House is set right next to the dunes at Camber Sands. This stunning beach-front house has a unique design focussed on laid-back luxury; offering stripped floorboards, natural sand and stone colours and a sumptuously comfortable mix of contemporary furniture.
The beauty and simplicity of Barefoot life welcomes couples and families alike. Downstairs is centred around the huge open plan living space, incorporating a kitchen with island, bespoke handmade dining table looking out over the sea, and invitingly cosy sitting area with sofas, armchairs and roaring log burner. French doors open onto the private dune-flanked decking, which leads directly onto the beach. There are also two elegant ground floor bedrooms, and a large bathroom with double-end bath and walk-in shower, set with pebbles and travertine stone.
Upstairs, to the rear of the house and curtained off from the galleried landing and master, is a twin with shower room - perfect for children. Through the curtain and on the other side of the stairs is the enviable south-facing master bedroom, boasting a king-size bed and a breathtaking picture window overlooking the beach. As the day draws to a close, drift off to a lullaby of waves lapping the shore.
In the late afternoon as Camber clears of day-trippers, the vast sandy beach becomes your own. Gather the family for a game of cricket, toast some marshmallows over the glowing firepit, or simply relax on the terrace and enjoy a drink while watching the horse riders and beautiful panoramic sunsets. Whichever you choose, the Barefoot life beckons you to kick off your shoes at the door, discard the formalities of convention and enjoy feeling the sand between your toes.

What makes this area So special...
Camber Sands is the centre point of a vast, unspoiled sandy bay (a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest) and is famous for its 7 mile stretch of long golden sands and powdery dunes. Add to this a range of shops and cafes offering food, beach equipment and of course essential ice cream supplies, along with an RNLI lifeguard service during the peak summer months, it is the perfect destination for families to enjoy beach life together. The beach even has its own section dedicated to watersports if you are looking for a little more adventure - there are centres offering a range of lessons for kitesurfing, land yachting, windsurfing, sailing and paddle boarding (sailing and windsurfing lessons can also take place on a sheltered lake).
This seaside village has several bars and restaurants, including the award-winning Gallivant serving locally sourced food. The Salts Farm Shop is a two-mile drive which sells quality farm produce. The bustling town of Rye is just 4 miles up the road and is well worth a day of exploring; with a range of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and historical sites.
