The South East England region
Eastbourne is on the South Downs which is a beautiful part of Sussex, close to Beachy Head with its lovely walks and wonderful views. Eastbourne is surrounded by countryside, but is also convenient with Brighton being only half an hours drive away. Brighton has excellent shopping and an excellent nightlight. There are a multitude of tourist attractions nearby including Wadhurst Llama Park, Lewes Wildfowl and motor museum, and Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, Brighton Sea Life Centre and Hastings Castle.
A great place to visit for the kids is druscillas zoo in Alfriston, which is about 15 minutes from Eastbourne.
This was voted the best kids day out in sussex. and is absolutely fantastic, with loads to do for kids of all ages.

Eastbourne is a large town, with excellent shops, bars and restaurants. The town has a large beach and pier, and also two entertainment parks for the kids which are located on the sea front ; Treasure Island has a huge large pirate ship to climb over, and an outside swimming pool which is paddling height, but has a large sand area to play in and a huge picnic area for the adults to sit and read a magazine with a cafe for food or snacks. It also has mini golf and an indoor area with a soft play area and slot machines and other 'pier type' slot machine games. Fort fun is the other 'park' has fairground type rides, with a run away train, little motor bikes, spinning tea cups, carousel etc. and you can either pay for a day, or by individual rides. Eastbourne Miniature Railway is also great and really reasonable. You sit on a little train and it goes round the park, and it also has a great outside play area with loads of things to keep the kids amused, including a maze to get lost in!!!!
As mentioned in another area on our page, we can' forget Druscilla Zoo which is fab and only 15 minutes from Eastbourne. Check out their website: http://www.drusillas.co.uk
There is also a new marina for boat spotters, which also has a range of bars and restaurants. There is a large sports centre nearby, with swimming pool with wave machine. A large tennis tournament takes place in June, with Airborne flying show taking place Mid August - including performances by the world famous Red Devils.

"Good but could have been better"
the place was in a excellant location, but the house was starting to look tired and needs to be freshened up. The washing machine was washer only not as advertised washer/dryer which did make drying our clothes a little harder. The rooms looked clean in the main area but under beds, etc it needed more attension. If you are parking there is street parking but due to the location you may have to park further away from the house
Overall it was good but needed more for the price you pay.
This holiday maker booked right at the end of the summer season ie first two weeks in September, so the property will have had a large number of holiday makers during the summer season. We do re-decorate just before the start of the summer season, but by the end of the summer, we do appreciate that some of the paintwork could probably do with touching up.
We did have to change the washer dryer to a new washer part way through the summer season as the previous one broke down. However, we provide a clothes airer and a washing line to dry clothes.
Just before the start of the summer season, we have the property thoroughly cleaned for a number of days, including shampooing all the carpets etc. The property is also professionally cleaned between when holiday makers stay. Admittedly, the cleaners do not move the beds and clean under them between stays, as there is only so much time to clean between stays, and it is a 6 bedroom very large house.
The price this holiday maker paid was £500 per week for a 6 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in a prime location with sea views in height of the season. I don't know what to say if this holiday maker believes he did not get good value for money at that kind of rental rate. Words escape me!

Walking distance to a lot of places, included bus/train-stop.
Close to beach, pier, shops. Seaview!
Nice flat with many bedrooms.
All we needed was included (except wifi).
Thank you for your comments. As you state, the property is ideally situated so that you can walk to the beach (end of the road) shops, restaurants, pier and various attractions. We are sorry that you felt the mattress in the main bedroom was a little hard, as this is an orthopaedic mattress and having slept on this myself the week before, I (and others) have found this extremely comfortable. The support leg underneath the bed does not stand straight for some reason, but it is not broken. Thank you for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, especially the Seaviews.

"5 mums , 6 kids , perfect for our needs"
The house was perfect for our needs , a well equipped kitchen with a large table we can all sit around , comfortable lounge for chilling in the evenings
The bedrooms had ample storage for all our clothes and the family bathroom was bright and modern
You can see the sea from the front bedroom windows and are on the promenade in less than one minute ,
Eastbourne and the surrounding areas has so much to offer , we enjoyed Drusillas, Blackberry farm, Hertsmonseux castle and science museum , Fortfun and the splash park in princes park.
The house was very fairly priced , its not luxurious but did have everything we needed and was very child friendly , they loved playing hide and seek in the many rooms
If you are looking for a bargain and homely place to stay then this will fit the bill.
I found communications with Susan the owner second to none , she answered any questions very quickly and we were given fantastic information about the house and where to visit and eat in the area , she also welcomed feedback on our return and returned the deposit quickly

What a fantastic place to stay in Eastbourne. House is clean and comfortable (not luxurious) with loads of bedrooms and bathrooms, perfect for all the kids and grandma. Great range of equipment if you want to stay in and cook plus loads of restaurants for eating out. Convenience store at the end of the street next door to the fish and chip shop (cod was fantastic). Easy flat walk into the town centre where all the usual stores can be found and only a stones throw from the beach. We had a great holiday and really enjoyed staying in such a fab house, wish I could afford to buy one that size.
