An absolutely fantastic property with everything you could want for a perfect holiday. Location is ideal for strolling into Hastings, provided you don't mind hills! Kate was a delight to deal with and she could not have been more friendly or helpful. Highly recommended.

Spacious, clean and quirky - recommended as both a base to explore Hastings and Sussex, but also as a fun place to stay indoors : table football, sauna, telescope, Sky tv and an extremely well-equipped kitchen! Very generous Welcome Basket.

Smugglers View was superbly placed to enjoy Hastings and all that it has to offer. The house has positive quirkiness aplenty and the facilities throughout were excellent and gave us all that we needed throughout the stay. Being close to the Castle gave us great access to strolls with super views over Hastings and the coast. It is a lovely house in Read morea great location and we would stay here again and recommend it to others. Hide
