Located very close to Town Centre and Railway Station.

'Stable cottage' has recently been fully renovated - internally extended to provide a really spacious Lounge. This major work also including a brand-new kitchen, brand-new bathroom, new floors , decor and new bedroom furniture.

Its name derives historically from the days when it was once part of the old Stables.

A welcome pack will usually include, Tea , Milk and Biscuits.

Also, Soap, shower gel and fresh towels are provided.

Internally the cottage is about 600 sq feet [ 200sq metres ] and has 2 good sized bedrooms [ one with a double bed, the other with twin beds - all with thick new quality sprung mattresses ] and a spacious lounge approx 5.2m x 4.2 m [ 16 ft x 14 ft ] featuring double casement doors leading out onto its own private SUN TRAP patio garden approx 15ft x 8ft . We have recently added a couple of deck chairs and a sun umbrella , which are sometimes very useful .

For anyone with a young baby, there is a Folding Cot available but you would need to bring baby linen. There is also an adjustable high chair and BABY SITTING is sometimes available.

Located in an IDEAL CENTRAL POSITION in Wharf Road just 2 mins walk from the Railway Station , and only 5 mins walk to the Town Centre , with the Seafront and historic old pier about 15 mins , so most of Eastbourne can be explored on foot.

WALKING - Beachy Head is easily walkable, with the Seven Sisters , and Birling Gap just beyond.

Beaches are lovely, and some having sand when the tide retreats, some with rock-pools , and there is even a Naturist Beach down by the West Cliffs which also has a sun-trap cafe nearby.

Opposite the Station is GROVE ROAD which is an interesting area known as 'LITTLE CHELSEA' where cafes [ we highly recommend Miss Walls Back Garden Organic vegetarian cafe ] , restaurants, small jazz club, art galleries, antique shops and old book shops can be explored.

The best nearby small Cafe is probably NELSONS at 4 Terminus Road - 3 mins walk - FREE WIFI.

The Towner Art Gallery is also a must if you like Art, and/or Modern Architecture - this also has a fabulous cafe on its top floor offering interesting townscape views.

The famous ' BILLS CAFE' is now open in Terminus Road, about 8 mins walk from the cottage and has a great buzz and wonderful food.

For those wishing to explore Sussex or Kent, Eastbourne is a perfect location.

Ideal for children because there is always much to entertain.

By train, the historic town of Lewes is only 20 mins , Brighton 40 mins, Bexhill just 10 mins. Hastings can also be reached by a direct train in about 20 minutes, and London Victoria 1hr 22 mins, Gatwick Airport is 50 mins.

For those with cars, Access to nearby towns and countryside is usually quicker. Brighton Town Centre is about 20 miles along the A259 and only 45 minutes assuming you avoid the rush hour.

For a scenic route the Eastbourne-Central Brighton Bus [ no 12 ] trip should not be missed - takes about 1hr 15 mins.

'Stable cottage' has a small garage - ideal for a MICRO or SMART CAR , or Motor Bikes/Cycles. Parking for larger cars is not a problem - there is ample free on street parking just around the corner - about a 4 minute walk.

Wi-Fi is NOT connected at Stable Cottage but is freely available at most Eastbourne Cafes, pubs, and restaurants.

UNLOADING - up to 15 mins is allowed right outside the cottage.

**Please note that this cottage is NOT usually available for young students , stag or hen party hire - it is more suited to family/couple bookings , or possible mature students/travellers [ please ask before sending a booking request ] **.

The South East England region

Eastbourne , Sussex , is often thought to be in a perefct position for exploring the coastline, and Sussex and Kent Countryside , its Villages and its historic Towns.

For overseas visitors, there is a car-ferry port at NEWHAVEN [ Transmanche Ferries ] , and at Dover.

Gatwick Airport has a direct train service to Eastbourne which takes less than 1 hour.

By car,Gatwick to Eastbourne is only 48 miles and about 1 hour , assuming you avoid the rush-hour period.


Eastbourne is a historic fashionable Town often said to achieve the highest Sunshine levels within the UK. Also a large busy town, its still possible to explore most of it on-foot. Having said that, car drivers can find easy parking , unlike cities such as Brighton or London.

What is striking about Eastbourne is just how unspoilt it is and how intact its buildings are.

The seafront is full of greenery and palm-trees - these survive because the cliffs of Beachy Head rise up towards the East and offer a great deal of Sea and Wind protection.

Many films compananies are using Eastbourne for locations because it is so unspoilt. Some films include the new Brighton Rock, PaulRaymond, Quadrophenia, Angus thongs and perfect snogging , Little Britain, Miss Marple, Eastenders, Christmas at the Riviera, etc.

The town centre is rammed full of all types of shops , cafes and restaurants - cafes are often very cheap compared with, say, Brighton and certainly just as good.

It also has a theatre thats always putting on great shows and musicals.

During the summer season a live orchestra plays popular classical music on the seafront, followed by a firework display - this once a week.

The Air show in August is also very popular.
