  • Traditional fishermen’s cottage, perfect couple's retreat by the sea
  • Situated in the Meads Village area of Eastbourne, just 200 yards from the seafront
  • Stunning walks to be enjoyed on the South Downs Way, a short stroll from the cottage
Property code: EHC24

200-year-old traditional fishermen’s cottage, a perfect hideaway for two,  just a few yards away from the seafront and with easy access to the South Downs Way.

Watch the world go by and find your seaside vibe at this romantic 200-year-old fisherman's cottage, just a short stroll away from Eastbourne's seafront and the spectacular South Downs Way. With its nautical theme and homely touches throughout, this cosy cottage offers a welcome taste of the seaside in a traditional setting.

 

This is the perfect hideaway to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life and enjoy the fresh air and scenery of the coast. The lounge/diner has a table for two, ideal for a chilled-out meal together, while the kitchen leads to the courtyard via a stable door for tea on the terrace. The tranquil coastal theme continues up the cottage-style stairs in the bathroom and bedroom which are painted in calming nautical tones. Relax in the sunny courtyard to the back, or the pretty cottage garden to the front and indulge in a spot of people watching.

 

This cottage is in the popular Meads Village area, home to a group of 19th-century artisan dwellings with colourful cottage gardens, teeming with wildlife. For lovers of the arts, Towner, the contemporary art gallery, and Eastbourne's theatreland are only a 1.5-mile flat promenade away, so ditch the car and feel the benefit of a stroll in the fresh sea air. Check out Helen Garden for putting, lawn bowls and petanque less than half a mile away or spend the day on Holywell Beach, a quieter alternative to the main town beach. Direct access onto the South Downs Way 200 yards from the property's front door means that the renowned beauty spot of Beachy Head is just a 2-mile amble away. The chalk cliffs here offer some of the most spectacular coastal views in the area.

The cottage is comfortable and in a nice area of Eastbourne, but: 1. A pub beer garden backs onto the property and when busy at night is loud. 2.
