With its spectacular long stretch of coastline and the glorious South Downs on its doorstep, the seaside town of Eastbourne is the perfect retreat for a romantic getaway. The perfect place to indulge in long beach walks, with sheltered bays and pretty coves at every turn, it doesn’t disappoint with lots of places to go and things to do as a couple. The rolling hills of the downs offer over 600 square miles of beautiful walks stretching along 70 miles of coastline from Eastbourne to the cathedral city of Chichester – even if you can only do part of it, it is definitely worth the effort. The surrounding countryside is dotted with pretty villages where you can browse quirky antique shops and discover sweet little tea rooms, perfect to share a cream tea or a hot chocolate.
Choose from our selection of hand-picked properties, from cosy fisherman’s cottages with roaring fires, perfect for snuggling up together on a cold winter’s night, to stylish apartments near the seafront, perfect for the summer where you are only a stone’s throw away from the up-and-coming art scene that Eastbourne has to offer. Our romantic cottages are also perfect for special occasions, whether you're looking to whisk your loved one away for a Valentines break, an anniversary or even a honeymoon.
For a night out on the town, head for the city lights of Brighton, where you can do a bit of late-night shopping before stopping at one of the city’s restaurants in the renowned Lanes shopping area to have dinner. Then head back to the peace and tranquillity of your holiday cottage for a nightcap, ready to start new adventures the next day. If you can think of nothing better than a dreamy weekend away with your significant other, the coastal town of Eastbourne is just for you.
