Good location, ten minutes into Bide and just a few minutes into the village with two good pubs, one dog friendly, and two good takeaways as well. It's a bit far to walk anywhere but that didn't bother us and a great base to explore beautiful Cornwall. We would return!

Lovely little barn located on a working farm. Fabulous interior & very comfortable. You will need transport to visit any of the local villages or towns as it is a little out in the sticks but dont let this deter your stay.

The cottage is roomy, well appointed and comfortable. Set on a working farm, its a great environment to appreciate being in the country. Plenty of wild birds to watch and the background hum of lowing cattle is very soothing. One highlight is the rear garden. Its essentially South facing so you get the benefit of the sun, all day. Perfect for sittinRead moreg with a drink and reading. Its remote enough to be quiet, but close enough to the A39 and local shops to get out and about. We loved it. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
