Cosy South Coast Cottage

South Coast cottages should be modern, cosy and practical and Old Town Cottage certainly ticks all of those boxes.

Eastbourne's characterful Old Town area is only around a 15-minute walk from the town centre, yet has a lovely community feel with some great independent pubs and cafes.

The Lamb Inn and the The Rainbow are well worth a visit for classic British pub food (with the latter boasting a beer garden - perfect for those warm summer evenings!) and the Love All café for a selection of delicious cakes.

Take a stroll through Motcombe Gardens or Gildredge Park, ideal for families with a children's playground, large playing fields and tennis courts.

Central Eastbourne offers a great shopping experience, with the Beacon Centre for your usual high street brands and the Little Chelsea area for quirky independent shops and restaurants. Head to the promenade for traditional seaside fun including fish and chips on the Pier, a wander along the clean, pebble beaches or perhaps exploring rock pools at low tide.

For those looking for invigorating countryside walks, the South Downs National Park offers unbeatable clifftop and coastal routes with breathtaking views including the Seven Sisters Cliffs, Cuckmere River and Beachy Head Lighthouse.

This South Coast cottage is also within easy reach of the train station with regular services to Hastings, Bexhill, London Victoria, Lewes and Brighton.

Set on a quiet street in a delightful Victorian terrace, Old Town Cottage has been modernised throughout, making it a fantastic base for those looking for short term accommodation in Eastbourne.

There are two bedrooms – the master with a kingsize bed and a second bedroom with a small double, comfortably sleeping up to three adults or two adults and two small children. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and overlooks the 12th century St Mary's Church.

Downstairs, the open plan living area feels spacious and light and leads out on to a private south-facing rear terrace with Astro Turf and outdoor table and chairs.

There is a comfy L-shaped sofa in the lounge facing the Smart TV where you can access all of the regular streaming services including Netflix and BBC iPlayer (don't forget your log in details).

The kitchen is modern and stylish with all you’ll need for a self-catering break including a fridge freezer, oven, 2-ring hob, microwave, toaster and washing machine as well and a Nespresso coffee machine and the usual pots, pans and utensils.

There is free roadside parking along Lower Road and the surrounding roads and WiFi is provided along with regular towels and linen (please bring your own beach towels). Additional linen and towels are provided for stays of two weeks or more.

Comfortably compact.
The house was well thought out and very clean. Our five week stay was comfortable and pleasant with good support from Exclusively Eastbourne. The Road is a quiet cul de sac with easy parking and friendly neighbours.

Great place to stay, in the quaint old town part of Eastbourne.
Lovely little cottage, felt right at home!
