It was perfect! Yes the parking can a little challenging and it is a little walk to the cottage, but that was all explained in advance. Hosts were so helpful in suggesting places to visit and the cottage was so cosy and comfortable.

We spent a fantastic 7 nights at 2 Gosses over Christmas. The cottage was an old building, but had modern touches throughout such as excellent heating, a great bathroom/shower, induction stove and a big tv. The local pub was lovely, and the area was beautiful too, we would definitely come back and stay here

This is a quaint and beautiful cottage. All the essential equipment is there and its well laid out. The stairs are tight and bend around but still negotiable with care. The area is pretty and and there are several parking areas to choose from close by. If you want to eat at the nearby The Lambs Inn book well in advance as it is extremely popular.

Eastbourne is a bustling seaside resort on the south coast of England. It has been a popular British holiday destination since Victorian times. The town’s attractive pier and promenade is still a major draw for visitors in search of a traditional seaside experience – you can enjoy a long, level stroll along the sea front whilst enjoying an ice cream or some fish and chips. The pebble beach is a good place to park a deckchair and take in the sun, or paddle in the sea. Great for family breaks and as a romantic getaway, the town has much to offer all visitors. The South Downs Way starts in town and extends 100 miles eastwards to Winchester – one of the first stops on the National Trail are the imposing chalk cliffs of the iconic Beachy Head, a few miles to the east of town. Eastbourne is a big hit with train enthusiasts as it’s home to the Spa Valley Railway and the Miniature Steam Railway. Historians may like Redoubt Fort and The Observatory Science Museum (in nearby Herstmonceux). For all-weather attractions for children why not investigate Fort Fun or the indoor Motcombe Swimming Pool? Further afield, and within a one-hour drive to the west is Brighton, with its own pier, wonderful array of shops and eateries. To the west is Bexhill-on-Sea with its impressive art gallery, the De La Warr Pavillion, and long seafront. Just beyond is the old fishing town of Hastings with its new award-winning designer pier, ancient castle and fishing shanty town.
