Property code: EHC27

End-of-terrace Victorian cottage, situated just 200 yards from the seafront, and a short walk from Eastbourne's town centre.  The ideal location for a traditional family holiday by the sea. 

This classic seaside cottage is the ideal spot for extended families to catch up and enjoy some quality time, offering an abundance of space to relax and rest whilst enjoying the East Sussex surroundings. Comfortably sleeping five and with a pull-out futon for a sixth guest, this property will cater to all of your family’s needs.


Stairs down to the lower-ground floor take you to the property’s main living area. Here you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen, dining table seating six and a welcoming living room. Head through the kitchen’s French doors and onto the private patio area where you can dine alfresco with all the family. Heading up onto the ground floor, you can relax in the formal lounge area, where large bay windows allow natural light to stream in and a flame-effect gas fire creates a cosy heart of the home. One twin and one single bedroom live on this floor, and onto the first floor, you’ll find a king-size master bedroom and an additional room with pull-out futon for last-minute guests! Take in the sea view from the mezzanine terrace accessible via the landing.


Around a mere five-minute walk from the property takes you down to Eastbourne’s Royal Parade, a typical East Sussex shingle beach with distinctive wooden groynes stretching out to the sea. Older kids and those young at heart will jump at the chance to enjoy some wild water sports based at the sports centre only half a mile away. Enjoy the coastal 1-mile walk down towards Eastbourne’s traditional Victorian pier, then wander into the town centre to enjoy independently owned shops, cafes and restaurants. You’re only 1.5 miles from the town’s contemporary art gallery and the same distance from the local theatre, offering you a cultural day out.

best thing is the location, close to seafront, otherwise the property really needs an overhaul to improve decor, comfort, cleanliness and up to date kitchen appliances, eg kettle and toaster.

We did not receive any welcome pack. Which was advertised. Disappointed .

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.
