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.

Enjoy a tranquil stay in the picturesque Meads Village area of Eastbourne and soak up all that this scenic spot has to offer. A romantic retreat for two, this spacious one-bedroom cottage is the perfect camp for a restful East Sussex seaside stay.

This calming cottage is thoughtfully decorated in chic coastal shades. Enter through the courtyard garden with outdoor furniture, perfect for catching the last of the day’s sun. The open-plan living and dining space is the ideal spot to tuck into a romantic evening meal, before collapsing on the cushy couch and making the most of the SkyTV. Clamber up the cottage-style staircase to bed where you’ll find a king-size bedroom soaked in sunlight, where you can enjoy a DVD in bed before nodding off to sleep.

Located just 2 miles west of Eastbourne, Meads Village is the perfect destination for a couple who appreciate quieter and calmer surroundings. Less than 100 metres away, you’ll find yourself on the village high street, where a handful of shops, restaurants and independent pubs offer plenty in the way of shopping and eating out. Wander 0.5 miles down to the beach at Holywell: this traditional East Sussex beach is awash with shingle and is a more peaceful alternative to the busy beach at Eastbourne. However, 1.5 miles along the coast from Holywell is Eastbourne Pier where you can treat yourself to some traditional fish and chips. The property is also less than a mile from the edge of the South Downs National Park, home to the iconic Beachy Head beauty spot (2 miles).

This property is in an amazing location and would book it again. The Meads in Eastbourne is delightful and everything is close by. Excellent. Well equipped and nicely decorated. Great to have the parking right outside. A new sofa would be lovely as we found this one rather soft and old for our bad backs. We'll be back again.

Lovely location, Meads Village is ideal for a leisurely walk into Eastbourne with a very good bus service back. Other than the above regarding the bathroom which is purely a personnel view, the property was a delight. We would certainly return.

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.
