Family-friendly holiday lets in Eastbourne

Beach in Reach provides an ideal base for those looking for spacious, family-friendly holiday lets in Eastbourne. Seconds from the beach and tastefully refurbished throughout, this six-bedroom Victorian villa comfortably sleeps up to 14 guests, making it perfect for larger family gatherings or colleagues sharing.

On the ground floor, there is a large living space laid out in two areas. The front sitting area has two large sofas in front of a Smart TV with access to all of the usual channels and streaming services (don't forget your log in details), whilst at the rear is the dining area with table to seat at least eight and a further table seating four (plus an extra Smart TV!).

Head a few steps down the hallway and you'll find the kitchen, well-equipped with a full range gas cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer and microwave, plus a further table to seat six. Leading off from the kitchen is a handy cloakroom as well as access onto the private rear patio and allocated parking spaces.

On the first (middle) floor there is the family bathroom with bath and shower over, as well as two double rooms both with ensuite. The largest bedroom is at the front with a superking bed and stunning sea views, plus for those with young children there is a day bed and a sofabed, each with a £100 supplement per stay, making it possible to sleep a family of four. There is also access to the balcony from this room (children must be supervised).

On the top floor, there are a further three bedrooms – two set up as twins and a king at the front with sea views and an ensuite.

There is outdoor space at the front and back of the property, both with a table and chairs, so you can bask in the sun at any time of day!

As with all of our holiday lets in Eastbourne, free WiFi, towels and linen are all provided, and there is a drive for two vehicles at the rear of the property and further free roadside parking on the surrounding roads. A car is far from essential though, given the prime central location and regular bus services running along both Royal Parade and Seaside.

Whilst the seafront is the obvious draw with its miles of clean beaches and iconic landmarks along the way including the Pier and the Bandstand, Eastbourne's town centre is just a five minute drive away or a 20 minute walk. There are a number of attractions including four theatres (Devonshire Park, Congress, Winter Gardens and Hippodrome) and the Towner Gallery which hosted the Turner Prize in 2023, plus a Cineworld cinema in the Beacon Centre.

An abundance of shops await those in need of a spot of retail therapy, as well as countless pubs, cafes and restaurants to grab a bite to eat. Or for a change of scene, why not head slightly further out of town for an invigorating ramble across the South Downs, passing through the quintessentially British villages of Alfriston, East Dean and Friston along the way.

Had a great Easter break with three generations of family. Spotless house for everyone to enjoy and in great location. Kitchen equipment rather lacking but Carl responded very quickly to my request for basics and brought them round within the hour.

A beautiful home in a lovely location. So close to the beach! We had my husbands family from India to stay and they thoroughly enjoyed staying at Carl and Sarah’s home on Eastbourne seafront. Carl was amazing and came down to explain the heating system to them and checked in to make sure everyone was happy and comfortable. Thank you!

Fantastic place for a large group to stay. Short walk to the Beach was nice in the evenings

We stayed for a week with the entire family to attend a wedding and we felt right at home. With 11 people, it didn’t feel crowded and we could cook, sleep and hang out perfectly. Right by the seaside so great walks available, including the beautiful Seven Sisters Hike. The place was perfectly easy to get to by car and even train, as it’s just a 20 minute walk from the station straight from London Victoria (or Gatwick). The host was super responsive and immediately helped us with our queries. A definite recommendation for everybody visiting East Sussex with a larger group! For people with accessibility issues, this place does have quite some stairs, as advertised. Nevertheless, my grandparents (83 and 80) could stay up one flight of 5 or 6 stairs with minimal effort in the first bedroom with en-suite bathroom just for them.
