Delightful flint cottage sleeping five guests, located in the Motcombe Village area of Eastbourne, with its historic pub, choice of independent shops, and good range of cafes and tea rooms.

This property enjoys a fantastic location just one mile north of Eastbourne town centre, in the area known as Motcombe Village, the town’s historic quarter. Eastbourne is a traditional seaside resort town which boasts a three-mile wide shingle beach, with a beautifully restored Victorian pier, and a great range of shops, restaurants, pubs, and bars. To the west of the town, just a short walk from the property, is the edge of the South Downs National Park, which has many miles of walking routes to be enjoyed, including the two-mile walk to Beachy Head.

The front door of this delightful cottage opens onto a hallway, off from which there is a cloakroom with a WC. Walking through the hallway, guests will come to the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a wonderful space which provides a great space to come together and enjoy one another’s company. The lounge area in this room is a light-filled space with wooden floors and an area of exposed cobble wall which create an attractive blend of old and new. There is comfortable seating here, as well as a TV/DVD, whilst in the dining area the original stone fireplace is home to the warming wood burner, bringing a cosy air to the room. The kitchen area, to the rear of the space has a door which leads out to the courtyard garden, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and a washing machine. Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor where the relaxing master bedroom is located. This dual-aspect room has a double bed and enjoys splendid views over the South Downs National Park, a truly stunning way to wake up. There is also a twin bedroom on this floor, whilst the third bedroom, a cosy single room is located in the attic space on the second floor of the house, as is the bathroom. The bathroom feels like a restful, retreat-like space with its intricately tiled floor, a sumptuous roll-top bath, and WC. Guests should be aware that both rooms on the second floor have sloping ceilings and some reduced head-height.

Outside, there is a modestly-sized, yet pretty patio garden located to the rear of the property, where the owners have provided a table and chairs to allow guests to easily enjoy al fresco dining. There is unrestricted roadside parking outside the property.

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 Hailsham). 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.
