Property code: EHC47

This property enjoys a fantastic location just one mile north of Eastbourne town centre, in the area known as Motcombe Village, the town’s historic quarter. Eastbourne is a traditional seaside resort town which boasts a three-mile wide shingle beach, with a beautifully restored Victorian pier, and a great range of shops, restaurants, pubs, and bars. To the west of the town, just a short walk from the property, is the edge of the South Downs National Park, which has many miles of walking routes to be enjoyed, including the two-mile walk to Beachy Head.

The front door of this delightful cottage opens onto a hallway, off from which there is a cloakroom with a WC. Walking through the hallway, guests will come to the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a wonderful space which provides a great space to come together and enjoy one another’s company. The lounge area in this room is a light-filled space with wooden floors and an area of exposed cobble wall which create an attractive blend of old and new. There is comfortable seating here, as well as a TV/DVD, whilst in the dining area the original stone fireplace is home to the warming wood burner. The kitchen area, to the rear of the space has a door which leads out to the courtyard garden, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, and a washing machine. Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor where the relaxing master bedroom is located. This dual-aspect room has a double bed and enjoys splendid views over the South Downs National Park. There is also a delightful twin bedroom on this floor with wrought iron bedsteads. Take the steep turned staircase to the attic space on the top floor, where a cosy single room is located, as well as the main bathroom. The bathroom feels like a restful, retreat-like space with its intricately tiled floor, a sumptuous roll-top bath, and WC. Guests should be aware that both rooms on the top floor have sloping ceilings and some reduced head-height.

Outside, there is a modestly-sized, yet pretty patio garden located to the rear of the property, where the owners have provided a table and chairs to allow guests to easily enjoy al fresco dining. There is unrestricted roadside parking outside the property, subject to availability.

A lovely little cottage in the Old Town. We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage had everything we needed but it would have been better if there was a walk-in shower instead of a bath. All in all, we had a relaxing few days in Eastbourne.

Nice quirky cottage in a good area with parking right outside the door. Kitchen well equipped. Small patio area. A handy Waitrose close by. Lamb Inn round corner. Some small grassy areas for dogs close by and bigger parks not too far away. Beach about 45- 60 minute walk.

Lovely little cottage in a great location. Handy for buses to Brighton and The Lamb Inn, a lovely old pub and two minutes from a large Waitrose store. A nice outside space for warm summer evenings, clean, nice decor and extremely comfortable beds. Fabulous, loved it.

Lovely cottage, very comfortable and a pleasant holiday. Would recommend for couples and young families. Not suitable for older people as stairs are quite steep and there are coombed ceilings on top floor. We liked it, but stairs too steep for us and it is hard to avoid banging your head to go to the main bathroom on top floor.

washing facilities would not suit anyone with mobility issues. Good location. Nothing in the house that we usually find- salt, sugar, oil tea coffee and a welcome cake/bottle of wine has been the norm.

Lovely Old Bakery cottage, with lots of character, in a fabulous location. We loved the local parks and the close proximity to the seafront. Having Waitrose next door was so convenient, parking was great. Beds were very comfortable and bathroom delightful. Would definitely recommend, but, if tall, will take a little getting used to the low ceilingsRead more in a few areas, mainly on the stairwells. Hide

Super location in the old town of Eastbourne. 15 min walk to the beach and on the bus route. Loads of great pubs just nearby. Parking right outside the door. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen and the owners have made the best use of space throughout. Great bath with shower, just a shame a full size shower couldnt be squeezed in.

I had not appreciated how steep the stairs were from the particulars which was a bit of a problem for my elderly father. Also my son and husband are both over 6ft so they struggled with the low ceRead moreilings, but the cottage was perfectly located as a base for us to watch my other son play cricket in a festival at Eastbourne College and having Waitrose around the corner was a bonus!! The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and the beds were really comfortable too.
