This cosy former fisherman’s cottage, close to the beach, has charm and character, offering stylish accommodation from which to enjoy a seaside holiday.

Located at the heart of Hastings’ popular Old Town, you have everything you need here to enjoy a classic British seaside holiday with a difference. The resort’s beach and promenade can be found just across the road from the property, while you can spend hours at George Street’s antique shops, cafes and restaurants, situated just around the corner. Five minutes away you can discover Hastings’ iconic fishing sheds and the Jerwood Gallery, while just a few more minutes’ walk will take you to the hill railway, with the Hastings Country Park lying in wait at the summit. Learn about the town’s smuggling past at Smugglers’ Adventure, an educational family attraction.

Upon entering the property, you will come across the charming kitchen, which also has a dining area. This is fully equipped with everything you need to whip up a simple meal and enjoy your stay here, including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge with ice compartment and a washing machine. There is also a small storage area, with a peg rail and bench, ideal for storing your coats, bags and shoes. Follow the original narrow stone stairs down to the former cellar, which has been converted into a snug perfect for a cosy night in, kitted out with a Smart TV/DVD, a selection of films and shelves lined with books. The snug also has a futon day bed which can sleep an additional guest if required. Back up to the kitchen/diner, a panelled turned wooden stairwell leads upstairs and into the lounge where there is a comfortable sofa and woodburner, a place to relax after a day on the beach. Open stairs take you up another floor from the lounge, where both the bedroom and shower room can be found. The bedroom is cosy and inviting, and features a double bed as well as sea views, while the shower room contains a walk-in shower and WC.

A parking permit can be bought from the nearby Tourist Information Centre for £30 per week, allowing use of all three main car parks on the seafront; (which are all within 10 minutes walk of the property). However, you can unload luggage from your car directly outside the property. Application for a weekly ticket can be done in advance on line, and then the ticket collected in person from the Tourist Information Centre. Details via Hastings Borough Council website.

A really lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants a comfy, clean, well appointed base to explore Hastings. Every detail considered, everything top quality and generous. We loved everything about this cottage.

The most perfect little cottage to escape to. Location is excellent, right at the start of the old town with all its little shops and cafes but also just a short walk from the new town where there are plenty of the usual high street shops for any essentials.

The welcome arrival pack was excellent thank you. The location in the Old Town was perfect. For those less mobile, the stairs could be a problem. The owners take pride in their cottage, and it shows.

The amount of stairs in the property would be a challenge to the elderly & infirm.

Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing cottage. We stay away regularly and One West Street is easily one of the best we have stayed in. Great location and a wonderful base to get to know Hastings from. We will be telling all of our friends so expect more bookings from Milton Keynes coming your way. Thanks for everything.
