Three-storey period property, perfect for family seaside getaways, just a few minutes’ walk away from the town’s beach and a short drive from South Downs Way, with it's cliff top walks and cycling paths.

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.

A really great place to stay. So near to the sea. A great location. Quiet and safe. Easy access to shops and eating places. Easy to get out of Eastbourne and find other places to visit. It was very well equipped and very clean. Comfortable and spacious. The owner was very easy to access if needed. We would highly recommend this place.

Lovely cottage, restored to modern standards without losing any of its considerable charm. Situated in an attractive area. The kitchen is well-equipped and the cottage has all needed facilities for a comfortable stay. We very much enjoyed our stay at Pond Cottage. Also communications were easy with the owner, who was very helpful.

Lovely house with everything you eyed for a self catering holiday. Comfortable beds and good quality towels. Nice quiet area at night, no traffic noise.

We enjoyed our stay at Nelson Cottage. Plenty of room. Comfortable sitting room. We didn't use the dining room - we found it easier to eat in the kitchen. The weather was good so we occasionally ate in the courtyard which was very pleasant. On the whole we found Nelson Cottage to be a comfortable and well equipped holiday home.

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.
