Former stable block stylishly converted to create an attractive holiday cottage sleeping two guests, located just a short stroll away from Holywell Beach to the west of Eastbourne.

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.

On street parking can be difficult in Eastbourne but this cottage has two secure parking places within the gated De Walden mews road. Near to bus stop and local shops.

Loved our stay at Dovecote. A pretty little mews in the perfect location. Meads village has a co-op local and a tesco local. Perfect for picking up essential supplies. It also has 2 nice pubs which serve food. It is a short walk to holywell beach and we particularly enjoyed walks along the promenade. Eastbourne Town centre is about 20 minutes walk Read moreaway. It suited us perfectly for our 1 week stay and was a great base for exploring the surrounding area. Hide

I would highly recommend this property. It is in perfect location and a very short walk to the beach (5-10 minutes). It is in a lovely part of Eastbourne with plenty of shops nearby. The house has a lovely feel to it and there is a tiny charming courtyard too. Very clean with soothing decor throughout.

This property is in an amazing location and would book it again. The Meads in Eastbourne is delightful and everything is close by. Excellent. Well equipped and nicely decorated. Great to have the parking right outside. A new sofa would be lovely as we found this one rather soft and old for our bad backs. We'll be back again.

Lovely location, Meads Village is ideal for a leisurely walk into Eastbourne with a very good bus service back. Other than the above regarding the bathroom which is purely a personnel view, the property was a delight. We would certainly return.
