  • Early 19c fishermen’s cottage with tiny enclosed courtyard
  • Located just seconds from the seafront and beach
  • Central location in Eastbourne, just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre shops
Property code: EHC20

Traditional fishermen’s cottage, located just moments from the seafront in the seaside town of Eastbourne.

This property is situated at the heart of the traditional seaside resort of Eastbourne, just across the road from the town’s wide shingle beach. The town’s restored Victorian pier is just a three-minute walk away with its nightclub, tea rooms, and fish and chip restaurant. Other attractions in the town include an interesting lifeboat museum, a seafront fort built during the Napoleonic Wars, and a fantastic outdoor sports centre, which offers tuition in stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing, and even raft making. There is also a good range of both high-street and independent shops in the town, as well as a wide choice of pubs, restaurants, and cafes.

The front door of this attractive cottage opens directly into the cosy lounge. This room has a lovely traditional feel, thanks to the whitewashed cobblestone walls and low ceilings, and offers a comfortable sofa, armchair, and TV/DVD. Just off the lounge is a contemporary-style kitchen/diner which is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine, and has a folding dining table at one end. There is a downstairs cloakroom and a door from the kitchen leads out to the patio area, making it easy for guests to enjoy al fresco meals. Steep, narrow, cottage-style steps lead to the first floor where the first of the property’s two bedrooms is situated: a double room which has a wrought iron bedstead and has been charmingly styled to create a tranquil retreat. The bathroom is also located on this floor and offers a sumptuous roll-top bath, separate shower, and WC. A second set of steep turned stairs lead to a single room which is situated in the eaves of the house, and therefore has a low ceiling and some reduced head-height.

Outside, there is an enclosed courtyard with garden furniture accessed through a door from the kitchen. There is roadside parking (subject to availability)

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely, cosy, romantic and quaint cottage right on the seafront yet still lovely and quiet. Lovely welcome from owner and lots of details and information about the area shared to make our trip better. Only grumble is the parking but the owner has said that this is in the process of being sorted by a car parking space being made for the cottage.

Pretty, well equipped small cottage, comfortable beds. Fantastic bathroom. No dining area, fold out table squeezed between toilet and back door. Front door opens to narrow alley, opposite overflowing commercial waste bins, climbing over garbage to get in and out. Street parking, busy, parking at times several streets away.

Whilst this was well situated for the sea front /pier and for shops this was spoilt by the four industrial waste bins which were frequently being sorted through by the homeless.

Cottage was lovely, very small living room but its the size it is, the rest of the accommodation was a good size and lovely bathroom. I would go back due to its splendid location in the town.
