The South East England region
East Sussex offers the holiday maker a whole host of opportunities to explore, indulge, be active or just plain relax. From the City of Brighton and Hove with its bustling seafront and alleyways to quaint villages such as Alfriston nestling in the valleys of the South Downs, there is always something to suit your mood. For the younger members of your family, there are the lovely beaches, fun parks and safe cycle routes to get their hearts pumping. Visit the castles at Pevensey and Bodiam, Historic houses such as Batemans (the home of Rudyard Kipling), walk in the fabulous green countryside littered with welcoming pubs or be in awe where sea dramatically meets land at Beachy Head. The South Downs, now granted National Park status, is a must on your list of things to do. The terrain varies from energetic walks such as the Seven Sisters Country Park or a gentle amble along the banks of the Cuckmere River to where its fresh water meets the saltiness of the English Channel.
There is so much to do and explore in East Sussex that you will be wanting to visit again.
Eastbourne has so much to offer that it impossible to list all the highlights! The stretch of coastline along Eastbourne's shores is known as the Sunshine Coast and for a very good reason. It has one of the highest rates of sunshine in the UK. Eastbourne takes advantage of this fact by hosting many prestigeous events in the summer months including Aegon International Tennis Week and Eastbourne Airbourne, the internationally renowned free airshow.
Throughout the year Eastbourne's theatres play host to a variety of shows and performers. There is guaranteed to be something to interest you and in 2014 the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vincent Simone & Flavia Cacace, Cats and Singin' in the Rain are all visiting Eastbourne. There is myriad of cafe's and restaurants, shops and attractions to keep everyone busy during their stay in Eastbourne.
Children will enjoy the playparks Eastbourne has on the seafront, a trip to the marvellous Drusillas Zoo Park or a ride on the Dotto train. There is tennis, crazy golf and a wide safe seafront for cycling or rollerblading.
Every day can offer a new experience whatever your pace of life and we hope we can help you make the most of your stay in Eastbourne.

A great little house, well equipped and perfectly clean. Quiet little cul de sac, but only a minutes walk from Eastbourne station, 2 minutes from the town centre or less than 10 to the pier and seafront. Loads of places to eat and drink within easy walking distance (no driving!!).

"Lovely house, great location and very well equipped."
Wendy House is in a great central location a short walk from the town centre and beach. I stayed there with my mum and 19 month old twins and we all had a great time. Gildredge Park is lovely and a short walk away. Tim was very helpful with our booking and Jan the housekeeper was there to greet us and had left some provisions in the fridge. We would love to come back and stay again.
Thank you so much for your complimentary review. It is good to know we are doing things right and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. I am so glad you and your family had such a fantastic stay at Wendy House! However I was sorry to hear the mattresses didn't seem to be comfortable. We chose memory foam as we felt it would offer comfort for most guests and have received positive comments about them. However like all mattresses, we realise they will not suit everyone and thank you for your comments. Also, just to confirm, should parking in the garage prove difficult for anyone there are onstreet options available nearby.
You certainly made the very most of your time in Eastbourne and we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the future.

"A graet place to stay in Eastbourne"
The Weeny House lived up to its description exactly. It is a charming little house conveniently situated minutes from the station and town centre and a short walk from the sea. The house is comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has a real 'holiday feel' to it with the seaside themed décor .There were even garden chairs and a clothes airer. Parking is no problem in Wharf Road, although the garage was big enough for my medium sized car. Tim, the owner was very helpful and friendly in all my dealings with him. Jan, the 'housekeeper, who lives in another of the cottages in The Courtyard was there to welcome us on arrival and was also extremely helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

"Cosy comfort, great location."
I stayed with my young family at the Wendy House during June 2014.
We had a fabulous stay in this cute and compact home.
From the original booking we had informative and welcoming contact from Tim, who was very accommodating offering helpful information and advice.
The home is tastefully decorated but not overly fussy, which is great with kids. It is very well equipped.
The location is perfect for exploring on foot all that Eastbourne has to offer.
There is a park around the corner for excercising the kids, with a cafe. The waterfront is a pleasant walk away, as is all the shopping you require (including supermarkets).
A garage is available for guests use, but our estate car was too long. Street parking at the Wendy House is limited, but we found a side street minutes walk away that had no restrictions, and the car actually stayed there for days on end as we had no need for it. Tim had already made us aware of where we could park. You can temporarily park in front of the house to unload/load luggage.
Jan, the housekeeper, who is located nearby was very welcoming and happy to assist if needed, but left us to get on and enjoy our holiday.
WiFi was a delightful addition to the amenities provided.
I was most impressed to find that my deposit had been returned before we'd arrived home.
Would definitely recommend Tim's Wendy House as a great place to stay for couples, families & friends (maximum 4 people). We hope to return to the Wendy House on our next UK trip.

"I want to stay again."
I'm going to keep this short. The location is great because if you go 10mins in any direction you're at the pier, town centre, beachy head etc so there's always something to do. Our host Janice was very welcoming and nothing was to much trouble for her. The house itself was fantastic, from the moment you open the front door you feel like you're on holiday. It has ALL mod cons so I needn't have brought the iron haha. The house is very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I allowed my 3 children to play in the courtyard out front as it's away from any main roads and it's big enough for them to run around while I relaxed on the sofa watching satellite TV and surfing using the wifi. I can't wait to go again when the weather heats up.
