Sussex self catering for four people

South Downs Garden Cottage provides perfect Sussex self catering accommodation for up to four guests - beautifully presented throughout yet practical and fully equipped for a short term let.

This Victorian terrace has been tastefully restored to the highest quality standard. It oozes with natural light, complemented by the muted colour palette to create an oasis of calm to return to after a busy day exploring all that Eastbourne has to offer.

On the ground floor is the lounge with a comfortable sofa and armchair in front of the smart TV which has access to the usual Freeview channels and internet apps (don't forget your log-in details).

The kitchen-diner is fully kitted out for a self catered stay, boasting wooden worktops, an oven-grill, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster and all the usual utensils. There is a dining table seating four people plus French doors leading out onto the private garden terrace (complete with outdoor furniture).

Just off the kitchen, there is also a handy shower room with walk-in shower.

Head upstairs to find two bedrooms - one with a spcious superking bed and the other with a double. There is another bathroom on this floor (which also has a walk in shower).

WiFi is included so ideal for those working from home, plus linen and regular towels, with a second set provided for stays of two weeks or more (bring your own beach towels). We can also provide weekly cleaning - please contact us to arrange. Parking is on street and we can provide permits for just £2 per vehicle per day.

Meads high street is literally at the end of the road, where you will find a whole host of local amenities including Tesco Express, a Co-Op (with a Post Office), The Black Cat Cafe and The Ship and The Pilot which are two great local pubs.

The South Downs National Park is just minutes away where you can take in some of the area's most unmissable sights, including the iconic Beachy Head Lighthouse, Belle Tout and the Seven Sisters Cliffs.

Central Eastbourne is also within easy reach either by bus, car or why not take the scenic route on foot and stroll along the promenade from Holywell down to the Pier (stopping for an ice cream pit stop along the way of course!).

There are also great, regular transport links should you fancy venturing slightly further afield to Bexhill, Hastings, Brighton or London Victoria.

There is a week-long minimum stay in peak season and bookings run from Saturday to Saturday, although flexible arrival days and short stays may be possible out of season and last minute.

Costs include the weekly rent, a £30 booking fee and a returnable £200 security deposit. To book requires an immediate, non-refundable deposit of £200 per week booked (booking fee and a portion of the rent) and then the balance, including the security deposit, is due by no later than six weeks before your arrival. For stays of three weeks or more, you may be asked to pay a higher security deposit and/or booking deposit.

The checkout time is 10am on the day of departure – a fine may be applied if you do not leave on time. Please leave the property in good order – dispose of rubbish in external bins and wash up any pots/dishes or place in the dishwasher and switch on before you leave. If the accommodation is left in an unreasonably messy or dirty state requiring deep cleaning, the cost for this will be deducted from your security deposit.

The security deposit will be returned to you within 1-2 weeks of your departure, minus any deduction for damage, loss or excessive cleaning required.

The property can only be used for the maximum number shown on the booking correspondence. It must not be used for improper, illegal or immoral purposes. Guests must not sub-let the property and must not change, add, move or remove any items of furniture, furnishings or structures inside or outside. Guests must not cause (nor allow any visitors to cause) any nuisance, annoyance or disturbance to neighbours, the property owner or the property owner’s agent.
