The South East England region

Officially the sunniest spot in the UK, Eastbourne was voted Britain’s number one holiday-friendly destination in a survey by Virgin Money Travel Insurance.

This award-winning seaside resort nestles at the foot of the South Downs and Beachy Head, with unbeatable walking and cycling to be enjoyed. Located just 25 miles from Brighton, and 17 miles from Hastings, Eastbourne attracts almost 5 million visitors each year.


Whether you fancy taking in a West End show or concert at Eastbourne’s fabulous bandstand, enjoying a stroll on the pier, roller skating along the promenade or even having a go at some water sports, Eastbourne can offer it all.

The charming town centre has a surprising number of excellent restaurants and a good selection of shops to while away a few hours – including a Museum of Shops. There is also the excellent contemporary Towner art gallery, plus four theatres, bars and clubs.

It’s also a family friendly resort – to keep the kids entertained, the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, Treasure Island and Fort Fun offer plenty of entertainment, including rides, crazy golf and go-karting, and there are bags of further attractions to visit within the surrounding region.

Our lovely clean, pebble beach has been featured on TV as exceptionally family friendly. KidzSafe waterproof identification wristbands are supplied free of charge so that parents can tag children with their mobile phone numbers. The pier offers traditional seaside amusements and if you’re trying to drag them away, Fusciardi’s ice-creams are unsurpassed as bribery!

Eastbourne has something for everyone – whether you’re looking for a traditional seaside holiday or a culture break.

"Lovely flat"

Flat is very well positioned near to the seafront and bandstand. On street parking nearby was never a problem. Lots of really good restaurants and shops on Terminus road, which is 5 minutes walk away… More

Thank you for finding time for the review and thanks for booking Gresham House with us again!
Great to hear that you love the apartment, it's private terrace and being so close to the beach, cafes and restaurants means that it really does take some beating.
Thanks for the useful feedback on the sofa - the owner has replaced some of the cushioning and cushions on the sofa so I hope that you'll enjoy it even more next year :)
Hope to see you again

"Good apartment in good location."

A comfortable and clean apartment with very good facilities. Great central location, two minutes from the seafront and close to shopping areas. Carl and Sarah (who live next door) very helpfully answe… More

Thank you for the kind words and helpful feedback :)
I'm pleased that you enjoyed your time at our Gresham House apartment - living next door we also love the amazing location, being just off the seafront and a very short stroll to all the cafes, shops and restaurants in the town centre.
The building is Grade II-listed (so offers lovely architecture) and inside it's modern and well equipped so great that you appreciated the combination!
Sarah and I are always available for any information on the apartment and local attractions, but will always keep a low profile unless contacted.
Thanks again

"In the heart of Eastbourne; tasteful; accommodating"

A place that has everything to offer that you could dream of. Conveniently situated close to all the local amenities, - close to the sea and to the city centre. Tasteful, luxurious interiors and extremely welcoming and accommodating property managers!

Thanks for taking the time for a review and for such lovely words!
The owners really have made great efforts to equip the apartment well and tastefully so they will be delighted to hear about your feedback.
And I'm really pleased the central and quiet location worked so well for you.
See you next time

"Great place in a perfect location"

This apartment is a really excellent place to stay for a weekend or week or more in Eastbourne. It is well decorated, has a lovely patio which is fantastic to sit out on when the wether is good and the bedrooms are surprisingly quiet, given that they look onto the road. The positioning is perfect - minutes from the sea and the town and easy to get to the station. You couldn't want for more.

The managers who run the B&B next door are really helpful and do whatever they can to make your stay a good one.

Thoroughly recommended. I would come back here again.

Thank you so much for taking time to review the apartment - and lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay so much, especially the private patio that gets all the sunshine in the afternoon!
The location really is perfect - quiet yet central and close to the beach so I'm pleased you enjoyed yourself.
See you again I hope

"Beautifully decorated apartment close to Eastbourne centre and the sea"

We stayed in Eastbourne for a two-week period in order to accompany two classes of students spending time at a language school in Eastbourne. The apartment was ideally located; with the sea, the town … More

Thank you for the lovely review and returning to stay with us - it's always very rewarding to see familiar faces.
I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay so much - the lovely weather must have helped too!
The owner is now looking to install WiFi as it is so important to so many of our guests so thank you for adding further encouragement to make that happen :)
See you both again next year I hope.

Lovely to hear you enjoyed yourself with your family at Christmas at Gresham House.
We live close by and like you love the location, close to the town and the beach.
See you again next year I hope - and maybe you'll make the Boxing Day swim from the beach then!
Thanks again for the review.
