A really stunning cottage set in a cosy village. Location is not the best if you dont want to drive far, but it is fairly central so you can visit the north or south coast in a relatively short time. You are allowed to take dogs, but be aware that the stairs and garden have some hazards for four legged friends!

A hot tub under the starts then wrap up in a fluffy dressing gown, log fire on while watching a film, fully equipped kitchen with a few condiments & the sunroom to sit and read a book.

Honeysuckle Cottage is just a perfect cottage for a couple to relax and enjoy the surroundings at any time of the year, but, in winter, with a roaring log fire and underfloor heating to keep you warm. The owner takes special care to welcome guests and all his additional touches, just add to making you feel at home.

The cottage was a great little get away. It was nice to just hibernate for a few days. The hot tub was awesome to jump in every night.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
