"Beautiful romantic stay in an ideal location"
We fell in love with this cottage the moment we stepped foot inside and immediately felt that it was a special place. The cottage had more than we could ask for, including a well stocked kitchen with good appliances. Hastings seaside and the Old town was right on our door stop, which made it so convenient to pop back if needed. It was really romantic and cozy for the two of us over the weekend break, but we'd also love to return to Seagate Cottage with friends, as there is plenty of room for more!

"Wonderful, quirky, comfortable, well placed cottage."
As a group of three mature adults we enjoyed a lovely stay at Seagate Cottage over the 2013/2014 New Year week. We encountered foul weather for most of our time there but the cottage was so quirky and comfortable that this helped us to enjoy ourselves nevertheless. It was really wonderful to arrive and find fresh milk in the fridge and tea bags and coffee available – this is a very nice touch and very welcoming. In spite of the wet and icy cold winds outside the cottage was well insulated, and always warm, with a cosy fire to light up when at home. It is very well situated in the old town and only a very short walk to anywhere one would wish to go to when visiting. We followed the footsteps of 'Foyal's War' and a walk on the common on top of the hill (reached via the funicular opposite the fishing museum) is a must for the fresh air and the views. We enjoyed visits to Bexhill, Rye and Battle (we rode the local buses to get there – easy, fun and no parking problems). We would highly recommend at stay at this lovely, historical cottage.

"At home in Hastings old town"
Seagate Cottage is perfectly situated to make the most of the delightful setting of hastings old town — its so near to everything — sea, fisherman's huts, the Jerwood gallery, shops, bars, pubs and great eating places.
The cottage is roomy and cosy with a well appointed kitchen, log burner in the living room, great shower & bath and friendly neighbours. We really enjoyed being residents of the house and town for a week and will certainly return for another family reunion.

"Old world charm and modern convenience, right by the sea"
Seagate cottage is in the ideal location in the middle of Hastings Old Town, a literal stone's throw from the sea. Perfect for access to the beach and the fish market. The Old Town is full of nice little shops and restaurants and good fun to wander around. Cross the road and go up the steps and there are some great walks along the cliffs overlooking Hastings.
The cottage itself is really cosy (we were there on a windy and rainy October weekend so that was important), full of period character with wonky walls and low doorways - tall people need to mind their heads! - but also well appointed with a good shower and modern kitchen. We particularly enjoyed using the wood-burning stove in the living room. We were two couples and there was plenty of room for us, the cottage would accommodate another single or child in a cute little attic room. It's really nicely decorated and makes for a great base, something we appreciated especially as we spent a lot of time indoors.
I imagine in summer the patio at the rear would be a lovely spot but sadly we didn't have the weather to enjoy it.
Overall we had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning in summer so that we can make more use of the beach.
