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.

This cottage is located in the popular Meads Village area of Eastbourne, one mile west of the town centre. Meads Village has a great community feel, and has a good choice of restaurants, pubs, and cafes, including the tea chalet which is situated conveniently close to the local beach. A short walk to the west of the property, visitors will find the start of the South Downs Way, a fantastic walking route which leads all the way to Winchester. Of course, most visitors to the area are far more likely to tackle just a short section of the route, perhaps the two-mile walk up to the breath-taking vantage point at Beachy Head, where they can enjoy a well-deserved drink at the cliff-top pub before making the return journey.

Upon arrival at this cottage, guests first come to the lounge: a relaxing room with a classic, elegant feel, and a bay window which floods the room with light. In the fireplace sits a flame-effect fire which gives the room a lovely cosy feel, whilst the comfortable sofa and armchair provide a relaxing place to watch the TV/DVD. An archway separates the lounge from the dining room, where guests will not only find a dining table but also a bookcase well-stocked with books for guests to enjoy. The kitchen, meanwhile, provides everything that guests will need should they choose to eat-in, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. At the far-end of the room, a door leads through to a small room with a breakfast bar which overlooks the garden, and where the tumble dryer  is located. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom with a WC. Stairs lead to the first-floor accommodation where there are three bedrooms. The first of these is a spacious king-size room, whilst there is also a restful single room and a twin room which has a nautical theme, with view to the back garden. The main bathroom is also on this floor and offers a shower over bath and WC.

A door from the kitchen leads out to a covered area, beyond which is a patioed seating area with garden furniture, which, in turn, leads onto a lawn. There is a parking permit provided for 1 car.

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

This is a lovely, comfortable cottage in a brilliant spot ideal for the local shops, beach and two very good pubs serving food, also an excellent Chinese. The rooms are well furnished and the house is light and airy. Nice little garden with outside furniture.

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.

Really lovely and comfy cottage. Located short walk from lovely beach and shops and pub. Dog loved playing in the well kept. pretty garden with my daughter. Felt like home away from home playing board games and making puzzles we found in the eclectic library.

Beautiful, quiet, location esp for dog walking. Note that despite parking permits you are not guaranteed a space, no nearby car park either. Arrived and couldn't park! Lovely place would return but not in summer as no chance of parking then.

This is a clean, comfortable and homely cottage situated perfectly for day to day local shopping and some of the best dog walking country in East Sussex. The cottage provides all you will need for a relaxing, self catering stay. However, should you wish to eat out there is a pretty decent dog friendly pub (The Pilot Inn) a stone's throw away, whichRead more offers a welcoming atmosphere and good pub food. David and Sally from Eastbourne Holiday Cottages are helpful, charming and highly professional. I can highly recommend this company and this property to those looking to come to the sunshine coast.

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.
