This was an absolutely beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings, right on the edge of the Souths Downs. The Cottage was spotless and there was a bottle of wine and milk awaiting on arrival. Easy access to Eastbourne and Brighton and Hove. Lots of lovely walks and an ideal place for a family with two young children.

When we unlocked the door, we both felt instantly relaxed. The layout of the property and quality was perfect. The house is situated in the perfect position for superb walks.

Comfortable, well equipped cottage. A good layout, although the second bedroom is quite small. Alongside the main road so noisy at times but, as we were out and about during most of the day, it was not a major issue. Parking space was quite tight for access but OK for a medium sized estate car, but parking for a second car would be an issue.

Anyone hoping for a quiet stay will be disappointed by the constant drone of passing traffic. The cottage is well equipped with generous kitchen storage utensils & space downstairs. The lounge is lacking in warmth decoration wise but otherwise adequate. The beds are fantastically comfortable, No expense spared on the quality of the mattresses. The Read morerear garden is delightful but noisy. Getting out onto the road from the cottage is dangerous due to the blind bend the cottage is situated on. Hide

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.
