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.

Lovely cosy cottage located in a mews with handy amenities nearby. This is our second visit and had a wonderful time visiting places and walking around at the country park and taking in the views of the cliffs. Weather was perfect and made our stay even better.

We thought the cottage was lovely, and was very well equipped. The stairs are a bit difficult if you have any mobility problems though.
