A family home that makes the perfect family holiday in Hastings Old Town, right on the seafront, great for shops and restaurants!

This has to be the most individual and unique property that we market. This grade II listed weather boarded house set over five floors is in the conservation area of Old Hastings and looks straight out to sea. From its bay windows there are 180 degree views from Hasting's East Cliff Railway right round to a distant Beachy Head in the west.

In Victorian Britain this was a palm readers house. Today it is very tastefully presented to offer unique accommodation right in the heart of this the most desirable part of town. The house has one room on each floor linked by a feature turned staircase from bottom to top. Look from the top down and its some feature!

On the ground floor there is a comprehensively equipped kitchen with a dining room below in the basement. The lounge is on the first floor and is uncluttered yet comfortably furnished to reflect a beach or seaside style of clean living. The bedrooms occupy the second and third floors. The principal bedroom on the third floor has a double bed with ensuite bathroom fitted with bath and a shower mixer tap attached. The second bedroom has twin beds with a small shower room on the landing. This room like the lounge below has a bay window and just great views out to sea.

From these upstairs windows you can easily watch the world go by, look across to the Hastings Beach fishing fleet, the largest in Europe and be there to witness the ever changing weather conditions. A stormy sea can be as invigorating as a beautiful summer's day is enchanting!

Immediately behind The Beach House are the shops and restaurants in George Street. These quaint streets in the old town are literally on the doorstep, yes this house is so beautifully central. A short walk east to towards the cliff railway you'll find a wide choice of fish restaurants many interspersed between the net drying huts a feature unique to Hastings.

For kids it's also great with the miniature railway, go- karts and the boating lake also close by.

The East Sussex region

Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester Harbour and Emsworth in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.

The chalk downland of the South Downs National Park cover a large part of Sussex from where they meet the sea at Beachy Head in East Sussex through to the Hampshire border near South Harting in the west.

Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex and Brighton and Hove on the Sussex coast is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Arundel and Lewes are two historic towns within the county both have imposing castles and are popular towns to visit.

The climate enjoyed in Sussex is above the average for Great Britain, which makes it ideal for visiting throughout the year.

Central Hastings

Immediately behind The Beach House are the shops and restaurants in George Street. These quaint streets in the old town are literally on the doorstep. This house really is so beautifully central. A short walk east to below the cliff railway you'll find a wide choice of fish restaurants many interspersed between the net drying huts a feature unique to Hastings.

For kids it's also great with the miniature railway, go- karts and the boating lake also close by.

Hastings and beyond

Hastings is a traditional seaside resort popular with many who enjoy a few days away by the sea. Hastings Old Town sits at the foot of the Hastings Cliff Railways, the East Lift in fact links the old town with the Hastings Country Park and the railway is currently Britain's steepest. It is just a short distance from The Beach House.

Hastings Old Town is full of historic buildings and quaint streets and is particularly famous for its beach fishing fleet, which as we have said is the largest in Europe. Much of the tradition has been kept and the net drying huts are today preserved at the top of the beach and sit amongst the many fresh fish stores at the foot of the cliffs. The Shipwreck and Coastal Heritage Museum is also found here and worth visiting; we carry a link under our 'Places to Visit' section.

The Hastings Country Park to the east of the town has over 267 hectares of ancient woodland, heathland and grassland together with three miles (5km) of dramatic cliffs and coastline. Lying within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most of the park has been designated a Special Area of Conservation, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is a designated Local Nature Reserve.

This whole area is of course 1066 Country and we could comment forever about what there is to see and do. Suffice to say, no visit would be complete without a trip to Battle and Battle Abbey. Read up about it again under 'Places to Visit' for East Sussex.
