Our stay in Little Chelsea was - as ever - great. We were here for the third time and we loved to leave our car standing. You can spend a week or more there and do everything on foot or use public transport. Trains and buses are within walking distance, as are the seafront, the city centre and all the interesting shops and cafs in Little Chelsea.

Nice location for younger couples/friends looking to enjoy the towns pubs, away from the hotels and main tourist spots. Good-sized lounge with a decent vinyl collection available for guest use. Small terrace area nice for drinks.

The apartment itself is perfectly equipped. Generally, the location in Little Chelsea is really good, you are in the middle of town and in a few minutes you are on the beach. 2 people can feel really comfortable in the apartment.

Very nice well-equipped cottage in a great location. Has something that you need for your vacation. Steep stairs to the apartment and the garden, not suitable for less mobile people.

This is a good sized apartment in one of the more interesting and attractive parts of Eastbourne. Lots of restaurants within easy walking distance and a 7-11 Tesco Express within 150 yards!

Lovely first floor apartment which was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed for our holiday.

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.
