  • Traditional fishermen’s cottage, perfect couple's retreat by the sea
  • Situated in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, just 200 yards from the seafront
  • Stunning walks to be enjoyed on the South Downs Way, a short stroll from the cottage
Property code: EHC24

This cottage is located in the Meads Village area to the west of Eastbourne. A stay in Meads is a fantastic choice for those who want to make the most of the breath-taking countryside which neighbours Eastbourne, as there is direct access onto the South Downs Way,  just 200 yards from the property’s front door. Just under two miles across the cliffs, is the renowned beauty spot Beachy Head, which offers some of the most spectacular coastal views in the area. The local beach, Holywell, is close to the property. This shingle beach is a much quieter and laidback alternative to the main town beach, whilst the addition of pretty, Italianate gardens and a tea chalet make it a delightful place to spend a day.

This property offers guests the chance to stay in a traditional fishermen’s cottage for an authentic taste of Sussex seaside life. The lounge is a wonderfully cosy room with a sofa to relax on, a wall mounted smart TV, and a dining table and chairs. A door leads through to the modestly-sized and yet well-equipped kitchen which offers an oven, hob, microwave, an integrated washing machine, and a fridge with freezer compartment. There is a winding staircase leading to the first floor of the property where there is a restful double room, with wrought iron bedstead and plenty of storage space in the built-in wardrobes. The spacious seaside-themed bathroom has a shower over bath and WC.

Outside there is a small seating area to the front of the property and a courtyard patio to the rear which is accessed through the kitchen. There is roadside permit parking close to the property, subject to availability, for which one permit is supplied.

The cottage is comfortable and in a nice area of Eastbourne, but: 1. A pub beer garden backs onto the property and when busy at night is loud. 2.
