There are plenty of vineyards, gardens and houses worth a visit too, locally and slightly further afield, including Charleston, the favourite haunt of the Bloomsbury Set.

Stone's Throw is accessed down a fairly steep flight of steps to arrive at the front door.
The entrance hall of the apartment houses a picnic basket, two deckchairs and a portable BBQ, perfect for grabbing and decamping to the beach opposite.
To the left of the hall there is a rather fabulous wet room with under floor heating, heated towel rail, WC and handbasin.
To the right of the hall you enter the main living area furnished in a unique style including large antique wardrobe with a French Style mirror. The sitting area features a pair of gorgeous leather Loveseats, together with coffee table, flat screen TV with Sky and Sky movies. There is also a combined Radio/DVD/iPod player/Alarm and a selection of Games, books and DVD's to use and enjoy! There is an old school desk so guests can park their laptops. The mirrored coffee table has the added benefit of bouncing the light so the person opposite the window is bathed in beautiful light and looks their absolute best. Try it out! It even works on a dull day.
The King size Cabin style bed can be curtained off at night. The bed is very comfortable and has a pocket sprung mattress with a memory foam topper. The topper can be taken off if guests prefer a harder bed. Linen is 100% cotton and the duvet and pillows are all season feather. A non feather duvet can be provided on request.
The Kitchen and dining area has a newly installed fitted kitchen with a range style cooker, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. The Chandelier has a dimmer and the table can be opened out to allow seating for 2 or 4 people.
New for 2013, a Nespresso coffee machine with integrated milk frother. Also a tray table by the bed, perfect for a lazy breakfast.
|Further details outdoors|
Access is via a small patio garden, please note the stairs are a little bit steeper than normal, so may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties. The property is across the road from the beach. There is a seating area with bistro table and chairs surrounded by potted plants and fairy lights, but there will be some traffic noise. Parking is free. There is usually space outside the flat on the road in the day, but it is trickier at night. However there is a free car park at the end of the road, less than 2 minutes walk away. August is quite difficult to park whatever time of day. It may require a longer walk.
The South East England region
St Leonards-on-Sea is a great base from which to explore 1066 country, being conveniently located between Hastings and Bexhill-on-Sea, both of which feature a range of interesting attractions. Just inland you will find the historic town of Battle and travelling further afield Rye, Eastbourne, Lewes and Brighton are all easy to reach by car or train.
For art lovers, The Jerwood gallery in Hastings has just opened and the De La Warr gallery in Bexhill is also close with great exhibitions. Both can make a great day out by walking along the beach to reach them. There is also the Towner gallery in Eastbourne and the newly opened art gallery in Margate, a little further afield.
As mentioned above there is plenty of cultural activity, a vibrant music scene and independent art galleries with regular private views on a friday. There are also plenty of cafes and antique shops (reasonable prices). Fresh fish can be bought from the Stade, provided by our fishermen. Lovely walks in the country parks. Beautiful gardens, kite surfing and sailing for enthusiasts.
For lovers of architecture, Hastings and St. Leonards and the old town has so many grade 11 listed buildings, buildings designed by Decimus and James Burton and last but not least, Marine Court, the art deco building that looks like a ship.
There are also plenty of traditional seaside attractions from crazy golf, pirate caves, the castle, amusements, funfairs, ice cream, fresh fish & chips and perhaps some of the most interesting festivals all year round. Fat tuesday (jazz), beatles day, May Day, Old Town Week, Pirate Day, the sea food and wine festival, america ground celebrations, carnivals, and bonfire night processions.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. I sometimes forget how Norman road is getting better and better. We will have to update the information pack we send out, to include the improvements to the area.
Hope to have you back sometime soon.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you liked our apartment and enjoyed the Christmas goodies. We always try to make the Christmas and New Year welcome pack extra special. We felt really sorry for you both for having to endure the unusually bad weather. Luckily you are regular visitors to Hastings and weren't put off! Thank you for being so understanding while we sorted out the problems the weather brought. It is a big relief for us that you enjoyed yourselves nonetheless and appreciated the good things. Really hope to see you again in much better weather!

"Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung"
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung. Mit moderner Küche in der alles vorhanden ist zum Kochen. Auch Spülmaschine für spülfaule wie ich es bin. Auch eine Waschmaschine ist vorhanden. Haben ein paar mal gekocht.
Das beste ist das große kuschlige Bett. So gut hab ich noch nie im Urlaub geschlafen wie hier.
WLAN ist kostenlos und funktioniert sehr gut. Handy Empfang nicht so gut, je nach Netz. Da die Wohnung im Keller ist.
Kleines modernes Bad mit Fussbodenheizung.
Sehr nette Vermieter. Die Frau spricht auch etwas deutsch.
Leider konnten wir die Liegestühle und den Grill nicht nutzen, da wir nur schlechtes Wetter hatten.
Vielen Dank, Es tut mir leid , meine Deutsch ist nicht sehr gut, Abe Ich kan gut verstehen!

"A cosy studio by the sea"
I stayed at Stone's Throw for a week last year (it's taken me nearly a year to write the review) but I can remember my stay very well, which is always a good sign of a pleasant week!
I had a lovely week pottering about in St Leonards, checking out the area. The flat was just lovely. It had everything you ever need - all mod cons and more. Beautifully furnished and the under floor heating in the shower room was a real treat. On nice days it was lovely to have breakfast outside - the lower ground aspect made it feel like a secret hideaway!
My hosts were extremely helpful and made me feel at home.
Great for a calm, relaxing time away from home.
Thank you for making the effort to still write a review even though its a year later! We really appreciate it.

"Beautiful, very comfortable and everything perfect!"
Stayed for 4 nights. We had a beautiful time. Cooked up a storm in the great kitchen area and loved the wet room, especially the underfloor heating. Tina is a fantastic host and left nothing to cha… More
Thank you, we love the underfloor heating too. Glad you made good use of the kitchen/ diner. We made sure it could accommodate four, so guests could invite friends over to dinner. Unfortunately, although the parking is still free, it has started to get a bit more difficult to get a place nearby now, in peak season.
