200-year old traditional fishermen’s cottage located just 200 yards from the seafront in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, within walking distance of South Downs National Park.
This traditional fisherman’s cottage is a perfect choice if you have a yearning for a romantic break for two (and the dog) beside the sea, and within walking distance of South Downs National Park. Just 200 yards away is the seafront of Meads Village, known as the Holywell Retreat with its laid-back cafes, bars and beach huts and a dog-friendly shingle beach. Around a 10-minute walk takes you into Eastbourne; perhaps visit the classic Victorian Pier with restaurants, bars and music venues, or the vibrant shopping centre for some holiday retail therapy.
You can relax into this classic English cottage and enjoy the light colour schemes, traditional furnishings and private courtyard garden with pretty outdoor seating. The whitewashed walls, stripped wooden floors and original fireplace surrounds all combine to give a sense of character, while the kitchen and bathroom offer every contemporary comfort to fuel and rejuvenate you. After a day of beachcombing, wind your way up the cottage-style staircase for a soak in the bath, then sink those weary souls into bed to wake refreshed and raring to go. Perhaps morning coffee in the courtyard garden would be a restful treat before the day's adventure begins again.
On the main beach at Eastbourne you will find the Lifeboat Museum and historic Wish Tower and, just 5 miles further along the coastline, is Pevensey Bay with its stunning beach. If you want an interesting and delightful day out, Pevensey Castle has history oozing from its ancient walls, or, further afield, explore the seaside towns of Hastings and Rye.
