We have solar water heating to take advantage of the sun with backup from gas for provision of both hot water & heating. When there is a party of 8 there is no rushing for showers as there are 2 shower rooms and a shower over the bath in the bathroom with a seperate toilet upstairs. The house is very versitile & everyone can join together or do there own thing. You can choose how much you do or how little. We find it is a great place for families to meet together, when they live in different parts of the country. Pets are not left out, as they are members of the family too.
The owners live next door and are on hand to help with any problems or give advice. We have a welcome folder with information to answer the most commonly asked questions. There are handbooks for the National Trust & English Heritage as well as literature featuring other attractions, to give you ideas on where to go if you haven't decided already. The owners grow different fruits & vegetables & visitors to the house can share the produce of the season.
|Further details outdoors|
Although Mount Pleasant House is situated on a main road, little traffic noise can be heard in the garden and people are amazed that they can sit peacefully & either relax or use the games room which has proved to be very popular. The astroturf lawn is easy to keep clean for visitors who bring pets with them.
We are lucky to have many green spaces in the surrounding area. There are St Helens Woods about 10 mins walk to the back of the house. On the way, you can stop at "The BOS" playing field, which is an enclosed space where dogs can run free & includes a fenced off play area for children with swings & climbing frames.
The East & West Hills overlook Hastings Old Town, which has proved popular with visitors & now features "The Gerwood Art Gallery".
The West Hill is nearer the house & has the newly renovated Smugglers Caves. The ruins of Hastings Castle is also close by, which you can see from the front bedroom.
There is a security deposit of £150.00 payable on arrival & will be returned a week later subject to the property being left in good order.
The South East England region
Hastings has a micro climate. It is generally drier than towns up & down the coast. Visitor have the benefit of a seaside resort with ready access to the countryside & panoramic views.
Hastings is a town and borough in the county of East Sussex on the south coast of England. The town is located 24 mi east of the county town of Lewes and 53 mi south east of London,
Hastings has so many attractions in & around the area. The next event is, The Hastings Beer Festival with "Keen" playing but I think tickets are sold out for that evening but there are other acts on other days. The Olympic torch is staying in Hastings over night on the 17th July. On the 22nd July, the Red Arrows are flying over but for a full list of events please check out our website. Many of the pubs have live music to suit different tastes. Hastings is steeped in history with many famous writers & artists getting inspiration from the area. Catherine Cookson made her home here for many years. Rudyard Kipling lived at Bateman's in Burwash just about 15 miles north.
In August we have the Old Town Week and there is a whole fun filled week ending with Fireworks in the Castle Ruins. The Old Town Carnival travels up the old High street & back down All Saints street, in which many of the houses date back to 17-18 centuries.
On the 14th October it is Hastings Day and on the Satuday nearest, there is a procession and big bonfire held on the beach. It culminates in an amazing display of fireworks.

"Home from Home"
One of if not the best Holiday rental properties we have stayed in over the last five years. I chose this house because it had something for everybody in our party and we were not disappointed. The neigbours otherwise known as the owners were very helpful and the gifts from the garden and kitchen were great. They even thought about the dog with water down on arrival and some treats.
We try to find something for everyone in bad weather as well as good. Holidays don't have to be spoilt by the weather.

"Great house, equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing break"
House was just as described. Easy to find with adequate off-Street parking. Property is located only ten minutes walk to nearest major supermarket. Our children loved the summer house with all of the games in.
TV, DVD, etc. in the lounge were excellent, lots of films for the whole family to watch in the evenings.
Kitchen facilities were outstanding, everything you need.
Bedrooms were spacious, light and comfortable with lots of storage space. Three bathrooms was a blessing.
The owners were excellent, even took our washing in when the weather took a turn for the worst.
Fresh fruit, tomatoes, homemade jam and rhubarb wine was on the kitchen table for us when we arrived, such a lovely gesture.
House was also kid and dog friendly.
Thank you for a wonderful review & leaving the house in such good order. Hope to see you again in the future

"Best Place To Stay In Hastings"
We stayed at mount pleasant house with 4 adults, 4 kids and 4 dogs. It was unbelievable. Our Ferry was late on aour arrival day and the owners waited for us and were so gentle, gave us a warm welcome with fresh scones and jam; that´s when our holiday began!
everything was so easy staying in this house, where everybody had something to do which was interesting for her/him. The owners love dogs, the garden is simply perfect! We stayed for 2 weeks, towels and linen provided and given new. I can´t count all the good things, this house and their owners are lovely, we will come back soon. all the best to you and your family, sheila!
We enjoyed having you stay. The time went so quickly but we hope the weather is better for your next stay.
