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.
