Ground-floor apartment, situated in the sleepy village of Alciston in the South Downs National Park, with easy access to the South Downs Way National Trail.

This property enjoys a rural location in the village of Alciston in the heart of the East Sussex countryside. The ideal location for keen walkers, or those who simply want to escape all the stresses of daily life, guests here can easily enjoy the three-mile walk up to Firle Beacon, where they will be rewarded with spectacular views. The neighbouring village of Alfriston is home to several pubs and shops, as well as Drusillas Zoo Park: a popular attraction particularly with young families. Nine miles away, the town of Eastbourne is a traditional English seaside resort, whilst the town of Lewes, some eight miles away is a beautiful historic town with many independent shops and eateries.

This property can be found in a secluded location, overlooking fields, making it the perfect spot for a quiet getaway. The front door of the property opens into the main living space, an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which has a dining table seating two, comfortable sofa seating, a TV, and patio doors which open onto the tranquil outside seating area. The kitchen area, at the far-end of the room, offers an oven, hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer, should guests prefer to eat-in rather than to sample the local country pubs. The one bedroom is a pleasant double which has patio doors offering views of the South Downs, a wonderful way to start the day. There is also a built-in wardrobe, as well as door which leads through to the en-suite bathroom with its shower over bath and WC. Please note that due to the rural location, Wi-Fi is only available outside the main house.

Outside, there is a decked seating area to the front of the property which is accessed through the patio doors in either the lounge or the bedroom. In addition to this there is a small garden area which affords stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There is ample off-road parking available next to the property.

About 9.00pm on first night a couple and baby arrived who had apparently booked the property with the owner. It was in the middle of our supper. The owner was summoned and asked to see our evidence of booking. He muttered to the effect that he had not been informed of our booking and disappeared to arrange alternative accommodation for the family.

This accomodation is obviously a converted double garage which has been extended upwards and is in the corner of the Rose Cottage Inn car park which closed down last year. It all looks a bit uncared for but is in a great location with lovely views. It just needs a bit of TLC and a bit more thought put into the interior to make it feel more homely aRead morend welcoming. Sorry to say it was not worth the 440 we paid. Hide

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.
