Cottages to rent in Sussex

Looking for cottages to rent in Sussex that have that have that warm, homely feel whilst also being moments from the seafront and local shops? Meads Haven ticks all of the boxes.

Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the genteel Meads area of Eastbourne, this 2-bed house sleeps up to four people across two bedrooms. The master has a kingsize bed and plenty of storage with built-in wardrobes and a separate chest of drawers. The second bedroom is set up as a twin.

The spotless bathroom completes this floor with a bath with shower over.

Downstairs, you’ll find a comfortable lounge with a smart TV offering the usual TV channels as well as internet apps such as Netflix (don't forget your log-in details).

The kitchen diner is well equipped with a fridge freezer, hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, plus a dining table to seat six. The patio doors lead out onto the private south-facing garden with outdoor seating - perfect for a spot of al fresco dining during those warm summer evenings.

There is free roadside parking nearby and free WiFi is provided along with linen and regular towels. The house is situated in a very peaceful street, so please be aware that parties are not permitted.

The Meads area is a highly sought-after part of Eastbourne, with its village-feel yet close proximity to local amenities and glories of the South Downs National Park. The high street has a handy Tesco, Co-op and places to eat including the Black Cat Café, The Ship Inn and The Pilot Inn. It's also the perfect base for parents visiting their children at the nearby private schools including Bedes, St Andrew's and Eastbourne College.

Central Eastbourne is also within easy reach (around 15 minutes on foot or a quick five minute drive) where you can enjoy a spot of retail therapy in the Beacon Centre as well as the lovely independent businesses in the Little Chelsea area. The town centre is also home to four theatres including the Congress and Devonshire Park.

Eastbourne also has great transport links with regular train services to Brighton, Lewes, Hastings, London and Gatwick Airport.

Nous avons passé un excellent sejour d'une semaine dans cette maison très confortable et située dans le plus beau quartier residentiel d'Eastbourne. Nous étions 3 adultes et un jeune adolescent et il y avait de la place pour chacun: dans le salon, la cuisine et la terrasse. La maison est très bien equipée avec du materiel de qualité. Tout est facile. L'endroit est très calme et situé près des larges falaises de Beachy head. C'est splendide ! Il y a quelques commerces, un pub et un salon de thé très sympas tout près. Un arrêt de bus se situe juste à côté pour aller en bord de mer. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

We had an excellent week's stay in this very comfortable house located in the most beautiful residential area of ??Eastbourne. We were 3 adults and a young teenager and there was room for everyone: in the living room, the kitchen and the terrace. The house is very well equipped with quality materials. Everything is easy. The place is very quiet and located near the wide cliffs of Beachy head. It's splendid ! There are some very nice shops, a pub and a tearoom nearby. A bus stop is located right next to go to the seaside. We will come back with pleasure.

Most enjoyable stay in a very pleasant holiday home.
The location of the house in Meads was perfect for us: a quiet, leafy area of Eastbourne, within easy walking distance of shops, pubs, the seafront and the town and station, to which there were also good bus connections. Above all, it was only a stone‘s throw from the start of the South Downs Way, with wonderful coastal walks to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. The house was very clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated, with a nice little patio and garden. We felt very at home there.
We found it a bit tricky turning the heating on at first, but managed after following the trouble-shooting instructions provided.
