Tucked away within the idyllic Normans Bay, this spacious house is right on the beach and perfect for friends and family looking to spend some quality time together. The house is on a private road with no public parking, so the beach feels very exclusive. This area of coastline is surrounded by the South Downs, famous for their white chalk cliffs. Spend some time exploring Seven Sisters National Park (8 miles) and Cuckmere Haven (9 miles), which is where the River Haven meets the English Channel. You will be spoilt for choice for where to take the kids with Drusillas Park (12 miles), Treasure Island Adventure Park (5.8 miles) and Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway (8.5 miles), all great fun for all the family.

This four-bedroom beach house is spacious and has been tastefully renovated by the owner to take advantage of its fantastic beachfront location.

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.
