Nelson Cottage was very clean and welcoming, the space is great and location ideal. We always found a parking space outside. Will be returning

Comfortable cottage in a quiet street near the beach and near the city center that offers good value for money.

Reviewed by Jenny 22nd June 2019

Ideally situated. Yet just far enough away from the hub of The town. We used the public tennis courts just around the corner which was handy. Parked easily outside Nelson Cottage and left the car there all week.

What a lovely cottage. Really clean and comfy beds . Great kitchen and bathroom facilities. Great location for a family holiday as close to beach and some lovely parks. Also near to a good cafe ( the beach deck)

The House was in a perfect position to see Eastbourne and surrounding area , overall the house was comfortable and great for a week's holiday. We all enjoyed the holiday.

Reviewed by Monika 1st September 2018

Location was great as close to the beach and the town centre, but more or less average and we had other holiday homes before with more welcoming features.

Reviewed by Wendy 4th August 2018

Lovely holiday home. Well equipped . Bigger then it looked on the internet.

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.
