End-terrace, three-storey property sleeping six guests, situated less than a mile east of Eastbourne town centre and just a few minutes’ walk away from the town’s beach.

This property is situated just one road back from the seafront parade in the East Sussex town of Eastbourne. The town became a popular resort in Victorian times and there is plenty to remind visitors of the town’s past, including the impressive pier which has been painstakingly restored following a fire in 2014. Not only does the pier offer a unique perspective of the sea and the beach, but it is also home to a lovely tea room, a jazz lounge, and a nightclub. Asides from the beach, which is manned by lifeguards in high-season, there is plenty more to see and do in the area including Beachy Head, a miniature steam railway, a water sports centre, and an impressive seafront fortress.

Enter the front hall of this charming property , leading into a spacious lounge, which, with its light and airy feel, gives guests a taste of just how much effort the owners have put into creating a welcoming and relaxing place to stay. This elegant room has a large bay window, two comfortable sofas, a flame-effect fire, a TV/DVD. Beyond the lounge, there is a separate dining room with space for six guests, which has a well-stocked games cupboard, a great place to enjoy a fun family games night. The kitchen, meanwhile, offers an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine, with patio doors leading out to the courtyard garden, and a breakfast table to enjoy your morning coffee.  There is also a WC on the ground floor. Two of the properties bedrooms are located on the first floor: a king-size room and a pleasant twin room with an attractive feature fireplace. The main bathroom is also on this floor, with a bath with shower over, and a separate adjacent WC. On the second floor, affectionately known as the Top Deck, there is a stylish twin room which has been lovingly styled to create a bright space with a seaside feel. This room benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC.

A patio door leads from the kitchen out to an enclosed patio garden to the rear of the property. This south-facing space has a table and chairs, which makes a brilliant place for enjoying al fresco drinks and meals. There is unrestricted roadside parking just in front of the property, subject to availability.

Ideally situated. Yet just far enough away from the hub of The town. We used the public tennis courts just around the corner which was handy. Parked easily outside Nelson Cottage and left the car there all week.

We had a great time here at Nelson Cottage.
