Former stable block stylishly converted to create an attractive holiday cottage sleeping two guests, located just a short stroll away from Holywell Beach to the west of Eastbourne.

This property is situated in a peaceful gated mews just off the High Street in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, a quieter part of the town with its own range of shops, pubs, and restaurants. The local beach is backed sheltered by cliffs at one end, and by pretty, Italianate gardens at the other. The main town centre is a mile from the property, easily accessible on foot or by regular local buses. The town’s beach is a wide expanse of shingle, whilst, at low tide large areas of sand are revealed, making it perfect for beach games, sunbathing, and swimming. Other attractions in the town include an interesting lifeboat museum; the restored Victorian pier with its tearooms, nightclub, and restaurant; and a fantastic water sports centre.

On arrival at this property, guests will find a gate which leads them across a quiet courtyard from where French windows open onto the lounge/diner. This tastefully decorated room has a restful atmosphere with its muted colours, plantation shutters, comfortable sofa, and dining table seating two. There is a TV/DVD with Sky here too, perfect for relaxing with a film in the evenings. A door from this room leads through to the separate kitchen which is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and washing machine. Steep turned stairs lead from the lounge to the first floor where there is one king-size bedroom with wardrobe, and which benefits from its own TV. Next to the bedroom, there is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside, there is a south-facing courtyard garden with a table and chairs, where guests can sit and enjoy the sunshine, perhaps over al fresco drinks. There is private off-road parking for two cars in front of the property.

We stayed at Dovecote cottage for two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage is very nice and ideally situated in a lovely part of Eastbourne. Everything we wanted was at our doorstep. After a week we got clean linnen and the contact with the office was very quick and pleasant. We would very much like to come back.

All local amenities Read moreare within a few minutes walk. Good food to be had at the Ship. Would definitely stay again. Hide

A wonderful cottage in of the most beautiful parts of Eastbourne. The cottage has been charmingly furnished and has all the amenities that we needed. It was clean, spacious, light and airy with a really comfortable king size bed. Tucked away in a quiet gated mews, it's a tranquil setting and difficult to beat. Within 300 metres of the cottage thereRead more's a deli, a Co-op (which freshly bakes croissants each day), a wine merchant, coffee shop, excellent restaurant (Ridgways) and a Tesco Express. The two pubs (The Ship and the Pilot) served good food and an excellent choice of beers and are in staggering distance of the cottage! Less than a 10 minute walk to the sea and just over 15 minutes to the town, it was ideally located for us. We had a fantastic weeks holiday and hope to return next year. 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.
