Holiday cottage, Eastbourne, East Sussex
This wonderful bright apartment is beautifully appointed and presented in a clean modern style. On the first floor in Keesha House, a traditional Edwardian building, it looks west across Devonshire Park and to the South Downs beyond. Being so central to the town you will find the seafront promenade, the fabulous shops and restaurants, Devonshire Park and the Devonshire Park Theatre just a few minutes stroll away. It makes for an ideal short break as you can so easily get here by train and will never need to use a car.
The Duchess Apartment is spacious and just perfect for two with a large bright living room and a comprehensively equipped kitchen area. A modern corner sofa makes you feel immediately at home and following a relaxing meal in one of the many local restaurants it is great to have the space to just spread and relax.
The double bedroom and ensuite bathroom have their own small hallway giving the apartment a separate area from the living room. The bathroom is equipped with a bath and shower attachment fitted above.
Alhough the apartment does not have a dedicated parking space, the owner can organise voucher parking immediately outside while there is also ample free parking behind the apartment.
Eastbourne is a wonderful and invigorating seaside town and famously known as the sunshine coast enjoying 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 that successfully mixes tradition with modern appeal.
In the summer Eastbourne comes alive with the very popular Airborne often featuring the Red Arrows and also there is the AEGON International Tennis that falls just prior to Wimbledon, a tournament that attracts many of the world’s top tennis players. The tournament is held in nearby Devonshire Park so can be seen from the Duchess 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. From there, there are boat tours to both Beachy Head Lighthouse and Eastbourne’s other lighthouse the Sovereign Lighthouse a few miles out to sea at Pevensey.
Beachy Head makes 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 heading west to Winchester and of course is the eastern boundary of 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 of which are close to Hailsham.
