Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Park

About Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Park

Pontins Camber Sands Holiday Park is an ideal hotspot on the Sussex coastline just outside of Rye. The popular Pontins resort was recently refurbished offering all sorts of updated fun and activities for families, couples and friends looking for a low cost holiday. While there are a couple of shops and restaurants along the road and on the way to the beach, it can get very quiet in the winter time especially. Check-in time is from 4pm on the day of arrival (unless you've got early check-in with a Club Apartment), and check-out time is 10am on the morning of your departure.

Getting There

The park is located on New Lydd Road, just a short walk from the beautiful Camber Sands beach, which is also a Blue Flag beach. There is plenty of free parking on-site if you're driving here. If you're travelling by public transport, the nearest train station is Rye train station, which has services to Eastbourne and Ashford International (with connections from London). There is a bus service between Rye and Pontins Camber Sands, however, the services aren't always frequent so you may be better to get a taxi.

Booking Your Holiday

Booking your holiday is easy. You can simply jump onto the Pontins website, choose your arrival dates and preferred park, and then choose your accommodation and add on any extras you need. The Pontins parks are also usually included within the Sun holiday codes promotion to help you save money and get a discount, however, it's always worth checking the price direct to make sure you're getting the best deal.

Mama's Pizza, Casey's Whistle Stop and The Downtown Diner also offer a good selection of tasty favourites like pizza and burgers. And don't forget the Ice Cream Hut to enjoy a yummy treat in the sunshine. The place to go of an evening is the Lunars Bar for all the evening entertainment and live music.


If you're a bit money savvy, you might have already grabbed all the bits and pieces you need before you arrive, like food, drinks, sweets and activity bits for the kids.
