Holiday cottage, Seaford, East Sussex
"We wanted a central location to get around the 'Downs', Croft cottage in Seaford was perfect for this, it is also very near to the sea front for evening walks. The cottage itself is very well kept and has everything you need for a holiday including free parking. There are plenty of coffee shops and cafes within a hundred yards as well. There is a large Morrisons a short walk away for a bigger shop as well. A good experience and glad we booked this cottage. The cottage doesn't have WiFi but that wasn't an issue for me as my BT hotspot cover gave me a good signal."
Usual enjoyable stay ay Croft Cottage
"This is our 3 or 4 stay at Croft Cottage and it is good to see that standards are at a continuing high"
Great time in Croft Cottage
"We had a wonderful week in Croft Cottage. The house is very confortable and well furnished. The front sea is just a few minuts walk. We also found a enough shops very close to the house."
Another great stay at Croft Cottage!
"Third time/year we've stayed at Croft Cottage, which is unusual in itself for us. Generally we find that quality and standards slip over a couple of years and we don't revisit. Not here! The necessary maintenance has obviously been done, bits that have worn out have been replaced, and it remains a very clean, warm and cozy little terraced property only 50 yards from the shops/restaurants etc (but quiet at night). We live detached, so for us there are compromises re noise from the street and next door, but nothing that spoiled our stay. Well done to the owner/cleaner, and to paraphrase Arnie - we'll be back! I should add that there is a problem with the booking process (nothing to do with the property at all) in that one is offered cancellation insurance but there is no way to report an existing medical condition. Telephoning Amber House for clarification, it seems that one can only take advantage of this insurance if one is fit and healthy. Not totally pointless, perhaps, but not as much use as it could be!"
5 stars property

Croft Cottage-aug 2016
"We found the cottage had everything that we needed for our 2 weeks stay, it was a lovely home away from home while we visited family and friends. The rooms were nice and light with more than enough space for the 4 of us. There was plenty of leaflets at the house providing information for the many attractions of the area. The only negative and it is a small point was how small and tight the carpark spaces behind were, but we always got a space."
Croft Cottage is a beautiful Victorian terraced cottage right in the heart of Seaford. The cottage is in a great location along a peaceful street yet is only 100 yards from the main shops and restaurants of this small seaside town. The beach and the two mile promenade is just a three minute walk away and gives fine views east to Seaford Head.
The cottage has been fully refurbished and the standard of the presentation is exceptional. It benefits from separate lounge and dining rooms, and a private town patio garden to the rear. Upstairs the main bedroom is fitted with a king sized bed while the second bedroom has three foot bunk beds with full sprung mattresses. The family bathroom also on the first floor has been fully refitted with a large shower bath and is also fitted with a beautiful handmade mirror and artwork that shows the thought and effort that has gone into the cottage.
Seaford is a small seaside resort that is in one of the most beautiful downland coastal areas you will find. The cliffs rise from the town up to Seaford Head offering fabulous cliff top walks towards Cuckmere Haven and the Seven Sisters, one of the most recognisable views in England. For golf lovers the course at Seaford Head is both challenging and stunning in its setting. This part of East Sussex is where the South Downs meet the sea en route to Beachy Head to the east.
The Seven Sisters Country Park and visitor centre at Cuckmere is a must for any visit. It takes the name of the famous cliffs, and comprises 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, the meandering river valley of the River Cuckmere and chalk grassland for visitors to enjoy. It is popular for a number of outdoor activities including birdwatching, cycling and canoeing. We carry a link to the country park from our Places to visit in East Sussex on our website so please take the time to read more.
Further east you will find the Belle Toute Lighthouse atop the cliffs close to Beachy Head. The South Downs Way passes immediately beside it. Decommissioned many years ago it was famously moved back in one piece from the cliff edge in 1999 following the constant coastal erosion of the cliffs. It was also the setting of a BBC mini-series in the 1980’s, the Life and Loves of a She-Devil. The famous Beachy Head lighthouse is just a mile further east on the end of the South Downs above the seaside resort of Eastbourne, part of the sunshine coast.
Two miles Inland from Seaford is the beautiful village of Alfriston in the heart of the Downs. The Clergy House in Alfriston was the very first property acquired by the National Trust in 1896 for the princely sum of £10. More up to date, Drusillas Zoo Park just two miles north of the village makes an excellent day out for families with young children. Details of both Drusillas and Alfriston Clergy House are featured on our website together with Newhaven Fort a fascinating Victorian Naval Fortress three miles to the west of Seaford.
