  • Spacious townhouse situated on a private development in the Meads area of Eastbourne
  • Just a ten-minute walk from the seafront and Holywell Beach
  • Access to the South Downs Way within a mile of the property
Property code: EHC05

Perfect for family holidays, this stylish cottage in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, has easy access to the seafront,  the town centre and the South Downs National Park.

With the laid-back shingle beach of Holywell Retreat within walking distance, this charming and attractive cottage makes a fantastic coastal bolthole, close enough to the bustle of Eastbourne but far enough away for peace and tranquillity. Keen walkers, nature lovers and photographers alike will be thrilled with the area’s beautiful dramatic scenery, while families will love the main town’s attractions, including the famous Victorian pier.


The property oozes rest and relaxation, with plenty of cosy corners in which to unwind, either with a good book, in front of the TV or a DVD, or even for a snooze after a busy day exploring! Enjoy some quality family time in the roomy lounge/diner – a great spot for a large meal as you plan the next day’s adventures. Two flights of stairs lead to the first floor, where you will find the attractive bedrooms that, like the rest of the cottage, have been decorated with a subtle nature and seaside-inspired aesthetic that perfectly matches the property’s surroundings. Breathe in the fresh sea air as you take a seat to the front of the property on the patio furniture.


Meads Village, where you will find the cottage, has a lovely community feel and a good selection of shops and eateries, although the traditional seaside town of Eastbourne is just 1 mile away. Here you can watch the boats come and go at the stunning marina, relax on the popular beaches, or head to the water sports centre for a thrilling time. Tie up your walking boots and embark on the breathtaking 2-mile walk to Beachy Head, where you can enjoy a drink and spot of lunch at the cliff-top pub before making the return journey, or head 1 mile to the incredible cliffs of the South Downs National Park.

The Stables is a very comfortable, spacious, well-equipped cottage. It is also very light and airy. A couple of supermarkets, pubs, cafes and restaurants are within a few minutes walk away, which is very convenient. We appreciated the fact that the central heating was on when we arrived so the cottage was warm. The cake, coffee, tea, milk and sugarRead more were also very much appreciated. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage very much. Thank you! 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.
