On the far-side of the park, the Sovereign Centre is a large leisure centre with a number of pools including one with wave machine and a water slide.

The accommodation was well presented and clean, Location was also good as its only a 5 minute walk to the beach, a few minus points were, No welcome pack on arrival (get these at most holiday lets now) the lack of blinds in the children's bedrooms and the bath panel being held on by tape, Also the cooking equipment is very worn and needs to be replRead moreaced. Apart from these points I would recommend this accommodation. Hide

Lovely bright clean property with good facilities. Great having two bathrooms. The smart tv was very modern too. Handy location with tesco and co-op round the corner and over the road from buses to and from town centre.Handy having own parking space too.. Three play parks in walking distance also. Will definitely consider rebooking. The Wednesday bRead moreandstand concert in Eastbourne is a must see too! Just to say, could do with a blind on the skylight in the little room as very bright room (good in Winter but with long evenings in summer a bit bright).Also took us a while to work out how to open the skylight so maybe some instructions would be handy. Look forward to rebooking with you again. Hide

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.
