Terraced cottage located in the Meads Village area, just one mile to the west of Eastbourne town centre, and half a mile from the edge of the South Downs National Park.

With the quiet local beach of Holywell within walking distance, this traditional cottage makes the most of its harmonious seaside location. Spend your days relaxing beside the shore or exploring the coastline, taking in the incredible views from Beachy Head’s cliff-top vantage point. Sleeping five, it’s perfect for families or small groups looking for an escape from their busy daily lives.

Decorated in a tastefully understated style throughout, you’ll feel peacefulness wash over you the moment you step through the door. In keeping with its surroundings, you’ll notice a subtle coastal inspiration in each and every room, giving a real holiday home vibe. Kick off your sandy shoes and relax in the classic lounge, where the bay window floods the room with natural light. When the sun isn’t warming you, switch on the flame-effect fire and transform the spacious room into a cosy oasis – perfect for those nights in watching a film or curling up with a good book. Wake up to pretty garden views from the bedrooms, perhaps heading outside for an al fresco breakfast on the garden’s patio.

You’ll find the cottage in popular Meads Village, where a fantastic choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes will happily solve any debates over who will do the cooking while you are away - we recommend a trip to the tea chalet, conveniently situated close to the beach. The start of the South Downs Way is also within walking distance, a fantastic route that leads as far away as Winchester. Why not take the 2-mile walk up to the incredible vantage point at Beachy Head, where you can enjoy a well-deserved drink at the cliff-top pub as you soak up the magnificent views over Eastbourne and the English Channel.

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

A spacious ,clean and well equipped cottage in a really lovely location.Good to have the pretty little secure garden to sit out in which our dog loved it too. We managed to find a parking space outside or very close by most days although this might be more difficult in peak season. Highly recommended.

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.
