This stunning self catering apartment has steps leading up to the front door, but the door used is at the back of the building. This leads into a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer and plenty of space, perfect for storing shoes, boots and the children’s buckets and spades.
The hallway of Lindsey Mansions leads to a long corridor with access to various different rooms, and stretches deep into the house, culminating in the marvellous drawing room overlooking the rose garden. The first impression of this apartment is that you have arrived at a luxurious but comfortable base for your stay.
The kitchen/dining area leads off the hallway where there is a stylish contemporary kitchen with stripped pine floors, recently updated with an electric oven, gas hob and extractor fan, microwave and fridge/freezer. The dining area of the kitchen is modern with a glass topped table and stylish white painted chairs, seating for 6 giving a Scandinavian feel. The sitting room which is 25’ by 25’ with two fireplaces is also accessed off the hall and overlooks the garden area through the fabulous window that allows the light to flood into the elegant room. Cosy sofas and armchairs surround the original Victorian fireplace. Table lamps and artwork on the walls finish the room off perfectly giving the room a comfortable warm feeling.
The master bedroom with ensuite shower room, has a king sized bed dressed in crisp cotton bed linen, bedside tables and lamps give the room a luxurious feel. Bedroom two is a spacious triple room with bedside tables, lamps and a double bed and a single bed, perfect for a couple with a child or another adult.

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 in the area 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.
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.

Beautiful apartment. Huge living area, very well presented. Everything provided, clean and very thoughtfully done. Absolutely loved the apartment, as did my wife (who is hard to please and thought it was gorgeous). Also loved the small garden and Warrior Square leading down to the sea.
Negatives (stopping me rating it 5+) - as stated single glazed sash windows meant we did not sleep well - unsightly scaffolding up the side of the building, which we were told may be long term, meant the side blinds stayed closed - we were pre warned the Warrior Square area had a large number of bedsits which was evident but not really a problem.
Thank you so much for your positive review of Lindsey Mansions and we are really pleased that you had an enjoyable stay there. We are very excited about the repairs to the stone work at the top of the building and the removal of the old fire escape stairs which will all be completed by Spring 2013 and the scaffolding removed in time for our Summer visitors.

"sets the standard"
As a fairly regular customer of self catering accommodation in the UK, I can honestly say this place sets the standards that most others can only dream about. A beautiful apartment in an exciting area of the country with a real cosmopolitan and cultural buzz. Nothing is missed, no detail over looked. And as for Ellen - a charming, gracious and generous host.
You will not be disappointed.

"Lovely apartment in a convenient location"
Our stay at Lindsey Mansions was very comfortable. The apartment is bright, spacious and airy - and very tastefully decorated, with a great view of the seaside and the Warrior Square gardens. There was a lovely fruit bowl (and other snacks) as well as some wine to welcome us upon arrival, which made us feel right at home. Ellen was also very thoughtful, to leave a selection of brochures for sights and activities in the local area. It's a pleasant walk along the seafront, in to the centre of Hastings, but there's also plenty of parking by the apartment, so we felt free to drive to nearby sights without worrying about trying to find a parking spot on our return. All in all, would thoroughly recommend staying at Lindsey Mansions.

"Please don't send us home!!"
Fabulous apartment, light, airy and so much room! So grand we kept expecting the butler to appear and offer us drinks. We enjoyed a wonderful stay, and wished we could stay longer. The small garden with access directly into Warrior Square with its huge rose gardens is a real gem, and having views across the gardens to the sea beyond is priceless. Only about 5 minutes walk to the train station, and St Leonards shopping area and convenience stores close by too. Hastings with its larger shops and seaside facilities is only a very pleasant 20 minute stroll along the beachfront promenade. The apartment was all we hoped for and more, and thank Ellen sincerely for sharing it with us. We would most certainly stay there agin, in fact can't wait to do so!!
