  • Early 19c fishermen’s cottage with tiny enclosed courtyard
  • Located just seconds from the seafront and beach
  • Central location in Eastbourne, just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre shops
Property code: EHC20

Traditional fishermen’s cottage, located just moments from the seafront in the seaside town of Eastbourne.

Featuring nautical details and a chic seaside theme throughout, this traditional fisherman’s cottage is the ideal spot to unwind on a coastal holiday. The property comfortably welcomes three and would be perfect for a little family or a small group of friends.

Whilst retaining traditional features such as exposed cobblestone brickwork, old wooden doorframes and low ceilings, the cottage has been modernised to a contemporary standard. A bright and stylish kitchen flows into a handy dining area where everyone can easily sit down to eat, before retiring to the cosy living room to watch a DVD. Heading up the cottage-style staircase to the first floor, you’ll find a classic double bedroom featuring a wrought-iron bedstead and quaint decor, and on the third floor, you’ll find a snug single room nestled in the property’s eaves. The bathroom can be found on the first floor and boasts a luxurious roll-top bath, as well as a standalone shower and WC.

Centrally located, the property lies around half a mile from the centre of Eastbourne. Here you’ll find a wide range of shops and restaurants, as well as an independent theatre venue and a 70-year-old working cinema. Explore the indie hub of Little Chelsea (1.5 miles) and enjoy vintage shopping or a stop in a vegan cafe, or head down to Eastbourne Borough Market (1 mile) on Wednesdays to enjoy local East Sussex produce and wares. Within a short walk from the property, you’ll find yourself at Eastbourne Beach (300 meters), which boasts a traditional pier and a bustling bandstand. Enjoy fresh fish and chips whilst wandering the pier’s arcade, or head down later in the evening to call at the town’s main nightclub.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A beautiful cottage so close to the sea. Small and quaint, ideal for a couple, and my dog was welcome. Everything that is needed is provided. The parking space is a major plus point if a little difficult to locate the first time(look out for the ice cream parlour on the left, drive past, Sail Loft is on the left then the black iron gated parking arRead moreea, if you pass the tyre garage you've gone too far!)

Wow! What a perfect break, this cottage has been beautifully thought out, really fresh and a great vibe. Very practical, although small everything works really. The bath tub was bliss and great to relax looking up at the vaulted ceiling beams. You can hear the sea from bedroom windows heaven and cant wait to return.

The cottage is pretty, 200 metres from the beach and has the added advantage of a private parking space for one car. The down side are the 5 Biffa bins directly outside the front door.

Lovely, cosy, romantic and quaint cottage right on the seafront yet still lovely and quiet. Lovely welcome from owner and lots of details and information about the area shared to make our trip better. Only grumble is the parking but the owner has said that this is in the process of being sorted by a car parking space being made for the cottage.

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.
