Holiday cottage, Eastbourne, East Sussex
This superb two bedroom apartment is just a two minute walk from Devonshire Park and the Devonshire Park Theatre. Also just three minutes from both the seafront promenade and the heart of the town, Keesha House is in a great location for the many local cafes, restaurants and galleries that are all around while at the same time enjoying a peaceful setting that is found along the many ‘Places’ and ‘Avenues’ that lead to the seafront.
The apartment is on the ground floor although it is accessed by a short flight of stairs to the front door. It is superbly presented with a spacious living room and kitchen area at the front of the house. The design is clever since the apartment wraps around a central staircase so the bedrooms are quite separate and located at the back looking out towards the park. High ceilings in this period apartment make it feel very spacious and bay windows throw in plenty of light. The principal bedroom can be set up as either a double bed or as twin beds, while the second bedroom which is slightly smaller is fitted with a double bed. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath, so real luxury! There is also a shower fitted above the bath. Beach towels and bath robes are also provided for your use which is a lovely touch.
There is free on street parking behind the apartment, or alternatively we can arrange coupon parking in front, so finding a parking space is not an issue.
Keesha House Apartment can be combined with both the Devonshire Apartment and The Duke's Apartment to make very comfortable accommodation for up to ten people all within the same building. Where this is of interest please do let us know.
Eastbourne is known as the sunshine coast and attracts some of the best weather in England. Everything is within easy reach. The lower slopes of the South Downs drop down from Beachy Head on to the magnificent promenade that stretches for almost two miles to Eastbourne’s Victorian Pier. It is a town of tradition.
In the summer it comes alive with the very popular Airborne at Eastbourne together with the AEGON International Tennis, a tournament which attracts many of the world’s top tennis players just prior to Wimbledon. The tournament in Devonshire Park is of course directly behind the apartment.
With its sheltered setting next to Beachy Head, Eastbourne also has some of the best Blue Flag beaches along the south coast, so with its excellent sunshine record Eastbourne makes for a wonderful holiday. A short distance to the east, the Sovereign Harbour Marina is one of the premier marinas in the south-east of England with many prestigious yachts moored here.
Beachy Head is a magnificent backdrop, with its dramatic chalk cliffs and gently undulating Downs. It is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and marks the start of the 100 mile South Downs Way and the South Downs National Park.
From Beachy Head there are breathtaking views over the English Channel and down to Eastbourne. The white cliffs would not be complete without mention of the Beachy Head Lighthouse, one of the most recognisable sites in the whole of England. A short distance further west is the Belle Toute Lighthouse an impressive sight on the top of the chalk cliffs and made famous by the BBC who used it for the filming of Fay Weldon’s ‘Life and Loves of a She-Devil’.
It looks down on the small community at Birling Gap which sadly is gradually disappearing through cliff erosion. Heading west from Birling Gap the chalk cliffs rise towards the famous Seven Sisters, one of the most photographed views in England, before reaching the river estuary at Cuckmere Haven. Here the ox-bow lakes within the river are perfect for canoeing and kayaking activity.
To the east of Eastbourne, Pevensey and Pevensey Castle are on the edge of the Pevensey Levels, another Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and important for its birdlife and wildlife. The Levels are bordered to the north by the small town of Hailsham where there is the magnificent castle at Herstmonceux as well as the Observatory Science Centre both close to Hailsham.
