Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Nook, as the name suggests, is tucked away in a quiet residential area looking out on trees and period buildings, yet is only minutes from the seafront promenade and the urban village of St Leonards. It is within a short walk of all the traditional English seaside attractions but also quality restaurants and bars, shops, gardens, theatre, leisure centre, teashops, museum, galleries and antique shops.
It's close to the station but also has easy parking outside the flat. So a great touring base for visits to London, Brighton, Rye, Battle - castles, gardens, country houses and great coastal and woodland walking. If you love history, architecture, art, live music, gardens and nature, this is perfect for you.

The South East England region
William the Conqueror chose the sunny south-east to visit, and so should you! Loads of battle events, castles, and the small town of Battle where it all happened. October is the month to experience its re-enactment. It was Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn's favourite hunting ground too and they've left their mark in castles, hunting lodges and the greatest Royal hunting ground, Ashdown Forest.
As well as being officially the warmest and driest area of the UK, this part of Sussex is packed with beautiful countryside for walking, nature reserves, architecture, gardens, live music, artistic and sporting interest, and it's the birthplace of motor racing.
There is unique birdwatching in the shingle habitats of Rye Harbour and Dungeness. Walking on the 1066 coastal walkway, the glorious clifftop Country Park, Brede Valley, the Cuckoo Trail, water sports on Bewl Water, the best modernist architecture in Britain and the full range of live music from classical at the De La Warr Pavilion to blues, jazz, bluegrass, Cajun, country and western, folk and tribute bands in most of the old fishing pubs.
Then there's Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, the homes of Rudyard Kipling, Winston Churchill, Anne Boleyn, Henry James, William Logie Baird, John Martyn...........everybody loves it here!
St Leonards arrived in the elegant mid-19C when James and Decimus Burton designed and built the exquisite Burton St Leonards and when every development had its garden, its square or its lake. And at the other end of the town nestles the beautiful, intriguing and even older Hastings Old Town where the last remaining beached commercial fishing fleet in Europe squats on the shingle among the famous net huts.
This town has so many artists, writers and musicians per square yard that you cannot help running into art galleries, live music and commemorative blue plaques of historic resident authors wherever you look.
There are festivals here every month from July to December. September is my favourite with the Coastal Currents Arts Festival in Hastings and St Leonards and a great one in Rye; the famous Hastings Seafood and Wine festival as well. October is the month to re-experience all the aspects of the 1066 Battle of Hastings.
MAY 4-7 JACK-in-the-GREEN pagan spring festival - highlight of the year
JULY 22 - Pirates Day. The whole town will be dressed in Pirates costumes to take part in the Guinness Record. Don't be left out!
And not forgetting the kids, the fabulous seaside fairground, Crazy Golf, Sea Life, museums, the Clambers in and outdoor Total Child Experience, Smugglers Caves, the home of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, and so much more.

"Really nicely decorated"
We stayed just before Christmas 2011 I think & the flat had everything we wanted for a break from the busy shopping Christmas madness.
If I was to have to find something to change it would be the living room television was very small.
We had a great stay & hope to come back

"Lovely, stylish spacious holiday flat"
The nook is a great holiday apartment. Stylishly appointed and furnished, set in lovely garden surroundings. Light and bright, with a huge bedroom and good kitchen it is both comfortable and chic - often a rare find. Close to everything but tucked away from the road we stayed for several weeks and very much enjoyed our stay.

"Very comfortable, modern, clean and contemporary - We had an excellent stay!"
The Nook is a very modern, spacious and comfortable apartment, within walking distance from the beach and local shops/bars. We received a very warm welcome, with a complimentary bottle of wine on our arrival, and eveything we could possibly need for our stay.
If you want an exceptionally clean, spacious and contemporary self contained apartment, the Nook is perfect!
If there was to be any downside, (which is a very minor one!) the TV aerial wasn't quite up to it, so the reception for most channels was a bit hit and miss, but other than that, everything was perfect.
We are really sorry that this guest had trouble with the TV and wish that she had called us so that we could have sorted it out for her at the time. We couldn't find a problem with it so assume that we didn't leave clear enough instructions. That has been dealt with and we are so sorry if it made their stay less than perfect.
