The South East England / Sussex region
The sunny South East corner of England with all the history of the Norman Conquest (1066 and all that!), the birthplace of British motor racing (1902), the first TV transmission (John Logie Baird in 1924), home of Catherine Cookson (1939-1976), film location for Poirot and Foyle's War (2000 onwards) and so much more.
The area has award winning beaches, beautiful countryside, and a wealth of historic castles, country houses and battlefields. Iconic architecture like the Art Deco gem of the De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill on Sea) is nearby and Brighton, that most famous of British seaside towns is an hour away by car or train.
The surreal experience of Dungeness, the legendary White Cliffs of Dover, the desolation of Beachy Head, historic towns like Battle, Rye etc right on your doorstep, not to mention easy access to The Continent.....what are you waiting for??? Book it now!
The Hastings, Sussex / St Leonards on Sea area
The property was built in 1860 and is located in the conservation area of Burton St Leonards, created by James and Decimus Burton to enable Victorian Londoners to take in the theraputic sea air, which is even more vital today than it was back then!
The last remaining beach launched fishing fleet in Europe is just a two mile Easterly stroll along the Promenade to 'Rock a Nore'. On the way you will pass numerous restaurants, bars, Hastings Pier and Hastings Old Town before arriving at the Fisherman's Museum and the unique net huts where you can buy your own 'catch of the day'. Or take a detour and explore the intriguing Old Town with its wealth of antique shops and historic buildings. Take a step back in time as you wander amongst the tiny alleyways known as 'Twittens' and experience life through the ages.
The remains of the second castle built by William The Conqueror is on the West Hill in Hastings and can be reached by a funicular railway, or, for the energetic, a walk through the Old Town and Twittens will take you there. William's first castle is at Pevensey Bay, just a few miles West of Hastings.
Also within easy walking distance heading West along the seafront is Bexhill on Sea where you'll find the Art Deco De La Warr Pavilion, home to exhibitions all year round. Along that coastal walk you may encounter the 1749 wreck of the Amsterdam where local legend has it that you might still search for the missing bullion!! You'll certainly experience a 'secret area' of character beach huts with an array of rare coastal plants and the dramatic Beachy Head is frequently visible, and very much worth a visit if you've got a car.
For the family there's the Smugglers Caves (an all year attraction steeped in the history of smuggling on the South Coast), Clambers Play Centre (an in and outdoor fun place), the Blue Reef Aquarium (for the 'get up close with sea life' experience) and all the usual seafront attractions.......fairground rides, crazy golf, amusement arcades........candy floss optional!!
Hastings has a great tradition of festivals throughout the year. From May to October there is always something happening! The Old Town has its carnival on the 4th of August this year, September brings the Coastal Currents Arts Festival and also the Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival held on The Stade. October is the month for fireworks and bonfires and the famous re-enactment of one of the most important dates in history....1066.....after all, if it was good enough for William The Conqueror, what are you waiting for?

Stayed at West St Leonards on a short break in April 2013. The accommodation was clean, spacious and welcoming. All amenities were provided including a travel cot and high chair, tv's and... more

This apartment was so comfy, it had everything you could possibly need. The weather was sub zero, but the apartment was warm and cosy, we spent much more time indoors because of this. There was a multitude of DVD's for all the family, books and games, so we had plenty to do. Yes we had to try the Chinese takeaway, which was lovely. The only downside was that parking wasn't always easy, which was not the owners fault, and they helpfully moved their car to let us pack on the last morning. All in all a great apartment, we hope to visit again.

Owner met us on arrival and was helpful, friendly and informative. Apartment was well stocked with books, DVDs and kitchen equipment, welcome pack on arrival and tea/coffee/sugar/milk in cupboards for us. Furnishings and all rooms were modern and clean. Apartment well heated, with controllable thermostat.
Well located for access to beach, restaurants and local amenities.
All in all a comfortable, ideal and welcoming base for our two weeks in Hastings.
Would definitely rent again if in the area.
