Delightful flint cottage sleeping five guests, located in the picturesque Motcombe Village area of Eastbourne, and near to the South Downs National Park and Eastbourne seafront

Active family or friends, with the dog in tow too, will fit right in with this perfect blend of contemporary and historical. This lovely cottage spreads over three floors, inviting you to socialise and dine in an open-plan living space, and retire upstairs in comfort.  Enjoy either village life, with its historic pub and independent shops, or the vibrant town centre and beach, just a mile away. Step out of the front door and decide each day whether it’s the beach, some retail therapy or an invigorating walk.

 

The clever design of the cottage brings you together to enjoy anecdotes and memories, and to plan each day - yet you can easily relax in your own space. From the large kitchen table, choose to step up to comfy sofas or step out on to the patio area for a morning coffee or evening drink. Plenty of light floods through the windows to accentuate the light tones and wood flooring which harmonise with the exposed cobbled wall, wooden beams and wood burner - retaining the character and charm of this delightful flint cottage. Please note that both rooms on the top floor, reached via a cottage-style staircase, have sloping ceilings and reduced head-height.

 

Set in the oldest village of Eastbourne, you choose the pace of each fun day. Stay local to explore Motcombe park and lake, visit Manor Gardens, and refuel at the 12th-century pub or one of the independent cafes. Eastbourne town centre offers a vibrant shopping experience, theatre and Towner Art Gallery, and down on the 3-mile wide shingle beach you can explore the Lifeboat Museum and historic Wish Tower. It also has a charming Victorian pier. And when you need to clear the mind and be at one with nature, scenic Birling Gap is a joyful 2-mile walk.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely cottage, comfortable and well-equipped. Noisy seagull chicks on the adjacent rooftop meant very early mornings which we could have done without and parking is more challenging than normal at present owing to scaffolding next door. Its an interesting walk down to the seafront, the Towner or the shops through the park and streets of lovely hRead moreouses. Having Waitrose round the corner makes self-catering a doddle! Hide

Lots of positives to report. Located near to a park a pub and a Waitrose supermarket and a brisk walk down to Eastbourne. No issues parking as we left the car on the pavement outside the cottage. We enjoyed exploring Sussex although there are a lot of roadworks currently. Taking the train is cheap to places such as Brighton. If you are tall the staRead moreirs and ceiling are low on the third floor where the bathroom is and didnt find the bath shower easy. Other than that we enjoyed it and can recommend Hide

This is a lovely place to stay, we stayed with two young children and it was perfect. We managed to park right outside the property the whole week. Theres lots of great places near by to pop to with kids on foot - a great park with a playground, supermarket metres away and lovely restaurants reachable on foot. The town centre is also a reachable onRead more foot too its just a bit further. The beach front is a very short drive. It honestly is a really great place to stay Id highly recommend. Hide

Positive points - Owner was responsive and friendly. Property was in a good location. Comfortable beds. Nice property overall. Pubs & shops few mins away. Negative points - Wasn't as clean as we had hoped, old cotton buds on bathroom floor & ledge behind bed was dirty. Fridge door didn't close properly. Not enough comfortable seating if more than 2Read more people staying. Front door was difficult to open & shut. Small garden was overgrown. Could be improved overall with some care & attention. Hide

Fantastic location and minutes from very good dog friendly pubs. Clean, tidy and comfortable - a home from home. Couldn't ask for more. Just watch your head if your over 6'2" in the bathroom.

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.
