Feel at home with the person that matters most in this attractive five-star holiday cottage for two, which has been lovingly created from a former stable block. Located just a short stroll away from Holywell Beach, west of the sunny seaside town of Eastbourne, this luxury property is ideal for a romantic getaway.

Charmingly furnished in a gated mews setting, the decor is restful, complemented by calming seaside pastels in the open-plan lounge and dining area. The kitchen is separate with all you need to cook a romantic meal if you choose to stay in. Up a set of cottage-style stairs is a tranquil bedroom with a king-size bed, decorated in a nautical theme. Outside is a south-facing courtyard garden, just the spot to share a bottle of fizz as the sun begins to set.

Set in a peaceful gated mews just off the High Street in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, the cottage enjoys a quiet part of town, but with its own vibrant community of shops, pubs and restaurants. Breathe in the fresh sea air at the local beach at Holywell (1 mile) sheltered by cliffs at one end, and by pretty, Italianate gardens at the other – it's also known for summer outdoor Shakespeare performances. Eastbourne is 2 miles from here, easily accessible on foot or by regular local buses, while the Towner Art Gallery is only 1 mile. Other attractions in the town include the restored Victorian pier with its tearooms, nightclub, and restaurant, and a fantastic water sports centre. Or stroll along the chalk cliffs to spectacular Beachy Head (2 miles), with magnificent scenery and wonderful walks.

This is a lovely mews house which we return to most years. It is perfectly situated near to most amenities and has a good bus service to Eastbourne Town Centre. A very quiet location too.

Great place to stay as the property is well situated for shops, restaurants, pubs, the Downs and the beach. There is a frequent bus service to town with access to everything else you might need. A very pleasant holiday in September and we will hopefully go again.

Good location in a very pleasant part of Eastbourne plus only a short walk to the sea and the foot of the beautiful South Downs. A clean, comfortable home-from-home with everything you need for a relaxed stay away. I would definitely recommend Dovecote Cottage and very much hope to stay there again in the future.

The mews house is just lovely - fantastic position for walking into town along the seafront or up on to Beachy Head. Plus there are two pubs within a five minute walk and also a Tesco express which does fresh bread and croissants in the mornings. Parking is super easy, the neighbours are friendly and we wanted to move in and stay!
