Eastbourne is a very appealing seaside destination for a British summer holiday for the whole family. With so many visitor attractions in and around the town, you won’t be short of activities. Eastbourne boasts a lovely traditional promenade and pier, which may be evocative of your own childhood holidays on the coast. For panoramic views head to the chalk headlands of Beachy Head a few miles west, or take the kids to the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway. Pack your swimming trunks and bathing suits, go for a paddle, play some old-fashioned arcade games, and enjoy some ice cream or fish and chips at one of the many quality takeaways. Fancy a day trip out of town? You could be in Brighton, Worthing or Hastings within an hour’s drive. Eastbourne is also at the eastern end of the South Downs Way, one of our National Trails leading to Winchester, 100 miles away to the west. There's a good choice of pubs and restaurants in which to wind down after a long day's exploration too.
Our Eastbourne holiday cottages for the summer are the perfect places to base a stay if you would like to explore the East Sussex coast. We have a variety of accommodation including romantic holiday homes and family cottages, and short breaks are also available for those with just a few days to spare.
