Boutique Hotel — Camber Sands

is a place



We are re-opening some of our bedrooms on 12th April

Although we can’t fully re-open just yet, we have decided to open up some of our loveliest rooms from the 12th April to 16th May on a ‘self contained’ basis – we’re calling it the Barefoot Gallivant.

With the beach just a stones throw over the dunes we felt compelled to open early, even if we won’t be able to offer some of the usual things you might expect when staying with us. The main hotel building will be closed, so no bar, restaurant or terrace but deeply comfortable beds, direct access to our coastal gardens, a delicious breakfast and supper of fresh, local ingredients bought to your room each and every day.

From the 17th May we will be fully open and normal service will resume….

The sand between your toes. Sky and beach as far as your eyes can see. Wonderful food made with love. Deeply comfortable beds. Beautiful rooms and a team that are here to make you smile. All these things in abundance. But something new and different too.

An invitation to find inspiration here. Through daily yoga, talks and workshops with experts in food, creative practices and more.

So not just hotel business as usual, but a chance to learn new things with a handful of new people and leave not only happy, but inspired.

The reawakened Gallivant is open for the exclusive use of our overnight guests and members.


Space to breathe

The Gallivant is spacious and comfortable. For all our team and guests to feel safe and relaxed we need to keep numbers lower. That’s why we are now for overnight guests and a handful of Members only. This makes physical distancing easy to apply. No pressure on space, no pressure on you.

Keeping numbers low also means we can focus our time and effort on the important things – like keeping things scrupulously cleaner and ensuring our team follow best in industry hygiene practices.
