There are a full seven miles of golden beach and grassy hillocks at Camber Sands in Rye – here, da dunes do run (and run). And with Camber Sands Holiday Park just steps away, there’s no reason Rye you wouldn’t pack your bucket and spade for a week or two in East Sussex…
Directly opposite all this crumbly goodness is Camber Sands Holiday Park, with a fully family-friendly vibe and a heap of activities and entertainment for all ages.
After a morning dip or proudly constructing the Best Sandcastle Ever on the beach, clamber back to Camber to dip your toes into one of four heated indoor pools (one each, should you be so inclined) or plunge into the Jacuzzi and sauna, available to the grownups for a small extra charge.
Little people, meanwhile, can monkey around on the multisports field and adventure playground – rather thoughtfully, the latter is beside a decked area so you can supervise the offspring from over the top of your book.
Kids also have many daytime activities available for tots to teens: Pipsqueak's Mousehouse is especially for the under-fives, and there’s loads more to pick from whatever your picky little one’s tastes, from ballet to archery to football on the sporty side, and trivia, dances and karaoke for those who prefer to take things a little easier.
Crazy golf and go-karting are also available on site for an extra fee.
For the evening shift, shift to the Showbar for a regular lineup of music and entertainment from local and visiting acts, karaoke and themed nights; tums are covered from morning to night at the Boathouse restaurant and fish and chip bar with takeaway.
When ambling off site, the local bus service stops right outside the park, and Rye train station is a 10-minute drive away.
Open from 20/03/2017 to 02/11/2017

From the M25, take the M20. Come off at Junction 10 (Ashford International Station) and onto the A2070 signposted to Brenzett. Follow the signs to Hastings and Rye, staying on the A259, and one mile before Rye, take a left turn signposted Camber. The holiday park is about 3 miles along this road.
Slap sandy bang opposite the holiday park, Camber Sands is a family-friendly beach, crammed with wildlife on its dunes, larks soaring overhead, and even allowing beach barbecues (ask Rother District Council for permish in advance).
Look out for moths, skylarks and the yellow flowers of the sea spurge dune plant; wildlife hunters and naturalists can also see many more species at the nearby SSSI Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, which has free entry, a network of footpaths, bird hides and spottable species such as marsh frogs, terns of several types, brown hares and nocturnal bats, badgers and foxes.
Both the village of Camber and the town of Rye have plenty of pickings for those staying nearby: start off at Camber for Camber Castle, built by – who would have guessed it around these parts – Henry No 8, and now managed by English Heritage. Access is by guided tour only and includes a tour around Rye Harbour nature reserve.
Go forth to Rye next for all things battle including the twin attractions of Hastings Castle plus Battle Abbey and Battlefield, both with lots of info for curious sorts about who won (Wills) and what significance the Battle of Hastings had in English history (quite a bit).
Rye has quite the smuggling history too: if you can get to the twelfth century Mermaid Inn, former meeting place of the Hawkshead Gang, you’ll be rewarded these days with an award-winning experience; while St Clements Caves, a haunt of former smugglers’, a hideout for Victorian workhouse escapees and a bomb shelter World War II shelter, has A Smuggler’s Adventure narrated by Hairy Jack and his team.
You’ll be mightily impressed too by the teeny genius at Rye Town Model Village, 700 years of Rye history laid out in miniature detail and with an audio show telling the town’s tale.
Heading east towards Kent, explorers can easily reach the sands of Folkestone and Hythe, the towering fun of the Grade II listed Old Lighthouse at Dungeness, and the ferry port at Dover for a day trip to la belle France.
