The South East England region
There is a wealth of history and natural beauty waiting to be explored along the Sussex Heritage Coast. The Downs around Eastbourne are recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The famous beauty spot, Beachy Head is only a short drive away. Beachy Head is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. At 530 feet high, the majestic cliffs provide magnificent views.
East Dean is a beautiful South Downs village close to Beachy Head and Birling Gap beach. Sample beers from the Beachy Head Brewery at old smugglers pub, The Tiger Inn on the village green. Visit restaurants including the Thai Terre where you will experience their superb Thai cuisine, or perhaps stop off for a while at the Hikers Rest cafe and gift shop. The Seven Sisters Sheep Centre and the East Dean Market (every Weds morning) are also worth a visit.
The nearby Seven Sisters Country Park comprises of nearly 700 acres of land. The Park is named after the famous Seven Sisters chalk cliffs. Next to the famous chalk cliffs is Cuckmere Haven (also known as the Cuckmere Estuary), which has been one of our favourite family walking spots for many years. Situated between Eastbourne and Seaford, the river Cuckmere winds its leisurely way through wide flood plains, twisting and turning with its oxbow bends before emerging on to the pebble beach at Seaford Head. A visit to the Exceat Tea Rooms for lunch or afternoon tea after your walk is a must.
Nestling in the nearby Cuckmere valley is the beautiful old Sussex village, Alfriston, which has a range of shops mainly specialising in gifts, but also has restaurants to enjoy.
Lewes is a historic town with ancient villages and picturesque downland set in the heart of the South Downs. Lewes has a variety of restaurants, cafes and shops to enjoy.
A visit to Brighton during your stay is a definite! Brighton is approximately 40 minutes by car from Eastbourne. Being the largest and most famous seaside resort in Sussex, Brighton offers a whole range of activities and attractions to suit everyone. Brighton has a mix of specialist shopping in The Lanes, a wealth of superb restaurants, beachfront fun and year round events. Attractions include an exotic palace, The Royal Pavilion, the pier, museums, Preston Manor, Brighton Marina and much more. If you are after a range of music events, the Brighton Centre and the Brighton Dome stage classic to contemporary acts. Brighton is a historic city with a modern twist and we just love our regular visits.
The village of Battle, whose name originates from the Battle of Hastings in 1066, fought between Harold the Saxon king and William the Conqueror, is worth a visit. Battle High Street has some quaint and interesting shops and restaurants together with a Norman church.
Hertmonceux is a village near Hailsham in East Sussex and is home to the magnificent Herstmonceux Castle.
Bexhill on Sea is also situated in 1066 country between the towns of Eastbourne and Hastings. Bexhill is set amongst some picturesque countryside with an array of castles and historic attractions to explore.
Hastings lies on the Sussex coast and is made up of the historic old town and the modern town. Hastings is well known for the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and is home to Europe's largest beach launched fishing fleet. Attractions include the cliff-top country park, Hastings pier and the White Rock Theatre. There are many events staged throughout the year.
A little further afield in Sussex is the beautiful town of Rye which is also bathed in history. A relaxed wander through the cobbled streets will reveal well preserved historic houses and a medieval church. Rye offers a range of things to do from visiting Rye Museum to enjoying the tea rooms and quaint shops .
Pevensey Bay is situated just a few miles from Eastbourne, nestled within the heart of 1066 country. Pevensey itself is a small village built on the east side of Pevensey castle. Pevensey Bay nestles within the beautiful and unspoilt stretch of coastline also known as 'the sunshine coast', due to the great deal of sunshine it enjoys throughout the year.
A few miles down the road towards Eastbourne is The Sovereign Harbour Marina providing a wide selection of restaurants and bars to suit every taste. The adjacent Waterfront Retail Park comprises a multiplex cinema, restaurant and selection of popular retail outlets including an Asda superstore.
Drive a little further along the coast road and you will reach the Eastbourne seafront, offering plenty of family attractions, including water sports, children's theme parks, mini golf, gardens, a Victorian Pier, a Napoleonic fortress, a leisure pool, the Dotto Train, boat trips and a 1930's Bandstand. There are many special events taking place throughout the course of the year in Eastbourne, including world class tennis at Devonshire Park and the spectacular Airbourne Show.

"Stylish accommodation, idyllic location"
This is a very attractive bungalow, thoughtfully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and blessed with superb sea views. We found a chocolate cake and tea/coffee/milk waiting for us - such a welcoming touch. We were lucky enough to have good weather, but games and DVDs were provided for rainy days. Pevensey Bay is a brilliant location; good shops in the village, and endless things to do and see within a few miles.
We are so glad that you enjoyed our welcome cake and tea/coffee/milk upon your arrival - we aim to give our guests a warm welcome. The superb sea views are a total blessing, we agree! The weather that you enjoyed was amazing too,'with not a drop of rain all week'! Let us know when you are wanting another September break and we'll book you in.

"Perfect for a relaxing holiday."
We stayed at the property with our two teenage sons for a weeks relaxing break and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute, in fact we wished that we had booked two weeks!
The Beach House couldn't be in a better position, to sit in the garden just looking at the sea, perfect.
The accommodation was great and the beds comfy, although I'm not sure how an adult could manage to sleep on the bunk beds as they weren't very solid!! The welcome card and cake were a lovely touch and the correspondence from Pip was excellent.
We enjoyed visiting Sovereign Harbour with it's restaurants and as the weather was fantastic, sitting outside and having a drink or meal.
We walked along the beach to The Aqua Club several times, the meals there were lovely and the view wonderful.
I wouldn't hesitate to book this fantastic property if we visit this part of England again. If you want a chilled out break then this is the place for you.
Thank you for your shining review of The Beach House. It really is in a 'brilliant position' as you say. We love the restaurants at The Sovereign Harbour too - so many to choose from! To call The Beach House 'a fantastic property' is so appreciated. We also loved the fact that you wanted to stay for two weeks rather than one! Please come and stay for longer next time!

The house directly accessing the beach is fantastic for all the family. The outdoor seating was great for sitting and watching the boats and making the most of the weather, at night we were able to star gaze, The house had everything we could possibly need and then some, having more crockery, pots and pans than i have at home.
We had a great time and wont hesitate in booking again for our next visit to Pevensey Bay.
Thank you so much for your complimentary review of your stay at The Beach House. As you say, the 'direct access to the beach is perfect for the family' and the star gazing at night is excellent. We are glad that you found the kitchen so well equipped. It is so easy to cook in the open plan kitchen too. We would love to welcome you and the family back again.

"lovely beach house"
we stayed at 262 coast road for a 40th birthday weekend and it was fantastic. wonderful access straight onto the beach which allowed us to make full use of the kayaks each day. Very well equipped kitchen, huge fridge and BBQ which meant we could keep the costs down and enjoy the sunny weather on the deck. lovely touches such as the chocolates and cake made it all the better. friendly neighbours that until you see them going down to the sea, you would hardly know were there. very enjoyable and relaxing weekend, can't wait to stay again
What a lovely idea to celebrate a 40th birthday for a long weekend! The Beach House is becoming a popular holiday venue for birthday and family celebrations! So glad that you were able to make use of our kayaks each day, together with BBQs enjoyed outside in the sunny weather. Come and stay again very soon.

"Relaxing and refreshing - the perfect break!"
We chose the Beach House for a relaxing break after completing university work deadlines and exams and it couldn't have been a more perfect break! It was easy to book with prompt replies and info from Pip. On arrival, the Beach House was spotlessly clean and welcoming, and very well appointed with everything to make it a home from home. Comfy beds, soft towels, a lovely shower; it is a really comfortable house to stay in. The view from the open plan living area is just spectacular! We enjoyed gorgeous sunny weather, sunbathing in the garden and walks on the beach. It is an excellent location for exploring the local area - we enjoyed a fantastic day in Brighton which is just 40 minutes away. We planned plenty of other sightseeing trips but due to the good weather mostly just relaxed and enjoyed the beach. This is a wonderful house and location which we would whole heartedly recommend to others, especially groups and families as there is plenty to do for children and the house and garden are very safe for little ones. We cannot wait to rebook!
We are so glad that you found your week at The Beach House to be such a relaxing time for you both, after all your hard work. Being able to choose to just stay and sunbathe and relax and enjoy the beach, or go out and about to explore is a great dilemma to have in such 'spectacular' surroundings! We are also glad that you found the beds 'comfy', the towels 'soft' and the shower 'lovely' - all parts of a holiday home that we think are important for our guests. The Beach House is absolutely 'great for families and groups who want to have a break together' too and we can't wait for you to book up again very soon!

"Amazing property and fantastic value"
We stayed here with extended family for a celebration of my husband's 65th birthday.
Well what can we say - everything that we could possibly want was provided, including tea and cake and chocolates on the bed when we arrived. Even though everything is to a high standard it still felt homely and comfortable.
There is something very relaxing about being able to sit and look out to sea, especially using the binoculars provided.
We would definitely like to return as would others in our group and cannot recommend it highly enough and feel privileged to have stayed here.
How lovely that you were all able to celebrate your husband's 65th birthday as a family at The Beach House. As you so kindly mentioned, a stay at The Beach House really does 'provide everything that you could possibly want in a homely and comfortable' setting. You are absolutely right when you say how 'relaxing it is to just sit and watch the sea'. Thank you for your 'high recommendations' to others to come and enjoy all that you were able to experience. We will welcome you all again with open arms for your next family celebration!

"It couldnt have been better, it could have been longer!"
I've just spend the weekend at the Beach house with 7 friends all celebrating our 50th year. We were all speechless as we gazed through the wide glass doors at the shingly garden full of poppies … More
Thank you so much for the most wonderful review from your celebration weekend away at The Beach House with your seven friends. Being able to celebrate your 50th together must have been lovely. The words that you have chosen to describe the garden and sea view, such as 'exquisite' and the duvets as 'sumptuous' are much appreciated. 'Wanting for nothing' and it feeling like you were holidaying on 'your own private beach' perfectly sum up a stay at The Beach House. We are so glad that you are now 'Pevensey converts' and we would love to welcome you back for a longer stay very soon!

Excellent location for long walks and fresh sea air. Good bus service up and down the coast. Very good restaurant (The Moorings) within walking distance serving very reasonably priced food with good s… More
It sounds as if you had a truly relaxing break at The Beach House and made full use of all the amenities within the local area too! We take great pride in the comfort that our special holiday home offers all our guests and are so glad that you were able to enjoy so much.

Gorgeous house in a perfect location. Stayed here with seven friends for a long weekend and when it was time to leave we all said we could have stayed for longer. House had everything we needed and beds were so comfortable. Weekend made better by fantastic weather and quiet surroundings...chilled out brilliant weekend...we will be back very soon...thanks Pip for letting us share your amazing place :-)
Wow! Thank you so much for your wonderful review of your long weekend away with your seven friends. We're so glad that you appreciated our 'comfortable beds' and that you had 'everything that you needed'. The weather was indeed 'amazing', enabling you all to enjoy a 'chilled out and brilliant weekend'. As you so rightly say, do come back and stay for longer as soon as you can!

"Right on the beach"
The bunglow is very well equipped and was very peaceful, and the welcome card and cake were nice surprises. However, it would have been useful to know that you can only reach one of the bedrooms by going through the bunk room and that the bunks are not sufficiently substantial to accommodate adults. The description does say that the room is ideal for up to four children but I feel it should say the bunks are not suitable for adults as there isn't enough room to sit up in the lower bunks and the frame is too rickety for an adult to risk climbing up.
I would recommend this bungalow to others but with the warning that there are only two rooms suitable for adults.
We are so glad that you found The Beach House 'well equipped and peaceful and that you enjoyed the welcome cake and card'. Thank you for your comments regarding Bedroom Three. You are absolutely right that we make it clear in our property description the bed options that we provide for our guests, enabling them to make an informed choice before they book with us as to their needs. Having the four bunk beds together with the four single beds in Bedroom One and Two has attracted full adult occupancy(8 guests)many times over. Thank you for your helpful comment regarding sitting up in a lower bunk - not an easy thing to do! We are so glad that you were able to enjoy all that The Beach House had to offer. It is a very special place to unwind and relax and take a well earned rest.
