This glorious three-storey townhouse situated in the heart of the coastal town of Eastbourne provides a family or group of friends the ideal base in which to explore the South Coast.

Located among the charming and quaint old Victorian shopping streets of Little Chelsea, on the outskirts of Eastbourne town centre, you have a choice of independent shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The town’s bandstand offers a busy programme of concerts, and the newly restored Victorian pier offers a range of venues including a nightclub, tearoom, and fish and chip restaurant, all within 1 mile of the property. The shingle beach is within 2 miles, as is the interesting lifeboat museum, and the 19th-century Wish Tower with its sun lounge and café. Keen walkers will enjoy a host of local footpaths that criss-cross the nearby South Downs, and Beachy Head (3 miles) Drusillas Park (8 miles) and Herstmonceux Castle (15 miles) are all well worth a visit. Brighton and Lewis are only a train ride away for a great day out.

You arrive in this well-presented townhouse and enter through the front door which leads straight through to the ground floor lounge – a great place to relax and unwind after a busy day out on the coast. Here you have two comfortable sofas that surround a smart TV so in the evenings you can catch up on your favourite shows or watch a film with loved ones. The kitchen area leads off from the lounge and the chef of the group will have everything needed here to prepare a hearty meal with use of an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Once dinner is ready, serve up at the dinner table which can seat up to eight guests and is situated in the sociable lounge. In the kitchen, there is a breakfast bar that has two bar stools which is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. Heading upstairs to the first floor there is a study area with a desk and chair as well as a second lounge, which is a perfect spot to relax and talk about your holiday adventures with friends and family. This room is complete with a TV and two sofas, one of which is a futon so this room can be used as a bedroom too. Finally, completing the first-floor layout is a double bedroom which has plenty of storage space for your belongings along with a twin room. The second floor has a shower room and WC, whilst the third floor of this stylish property has a king bedroom and a bathroom with a double-ended slipper bath and WC.

To the rear of the property is a gorgeous, enclosed courtyard area which is a lovely area to socialise with a cocktail, and there is a table and chairs for those that wish to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining. There is on-street parking for two cars and further parking can be arranged directly with the owner.

Beautiful house in a great location, and really well-equipped for cooking! We had the perfect car-free holiday with our baby and pre-schooler. The house is in easy walking distance to the beach, the pier, the town centre and the station and such a lovely base to explore from.

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.
