The East 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!

St Leonards on Sea

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?

"séjour très agréable"

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à St Léonards, l'appartement est très agréable, spacieux et bien rénové. Les couchages sont confortables, rien ne manque pour un séjour en famille. Tout est en parfait état et très propre. Les hôtes nous ont donné de nombreux conseils pour découvrir leur région. Nous avons fait de belles balades dans cette petite station balnéaire qui n'est pas envahie par les touristes mais très authentique (Festival de musique, marché, pubs...). La côte est très belle , nous nous sommes même baignés dans une eau à 22 degres ... Dans les alentours la visite de jolis villages (Hastings, Bexhill, Rye) qui ont beaucoup de charme et de nombreuses boutiques de fripes, et autres charity shops nous a vraiment intéressée.

We had a lovely stay. The flat is very comfy and tidy. The location is great and we enjoyed the sea view from the living room , The kitchen is well equipped and the landlord is very friendly and made sure everything was alright for us. We would definitely like to come back again.

"Lovely big, clean apartment right near the sea front."

I visited St Leonards for a two day visit and found this apartment in West Hill Road excellent value. The accommodation is spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable with the heating working well on our out of season visit. The owners were there for help but left us to enjoy our stay. However the pubs and restaurants they recommended were all excellent with all the character pubs and eateries being within walking distance. This property would be an ideal choice for a summer, family resort visit. Highly recommended.

"Un séjour ultra agréable"

Un accueil des plus chaleureux dans une maison très agréable ! Le logement est parfait, confortable, chaleureux et propre et dans un quartier ultra calme. La ville et les environs sont typiques, de nombreux endroits "so british" à découvrir avec émerveillement. Si vous aimez les charity shops, brocantes et boutiques vintage, c'est le paradis des chineurs ! C'est avec un très grand plaisir que nous retournerons chez ces hôtes qui sont extrêmement sympathiques et, si vous ne parlez pas anglais, qui parlent très bien français !

"Home from home."

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.

"Excellent, comfortable and hospitable"

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.

"Apartment with a view of the sea."

The Apartment was fabulous, just as described in the brochure. We did not need to take anything other than clothes with us , it was like home from home .We were met by the owner on arrival, given our key and shown around and even had a cup of tea made for us both. There is loads to see and do at St. Leonardsand Hastings, lovely shops and streets to visit, and take away chinese is excellent so is local fish & chips, .There are Brochures in the writing desk in the lounge etc for places to visit. .We will definately book again and return for another holiday ,It is cleaner and better than some hotels we have stayed in . Good luck to the owners as they deserve success.

"Excellent accomodation within walking distance to the seafront and Hastings"

We found this place by chance when trying to book for the bank holiday weekend. We thought that since we had left it so late to book that all the best places would already be full, but how wrong we were. This apartment is on 2 floors and accessed from the lower ground floor. The lower floor has the 2 bedrooms and bathroom and upstairs is the kitchen and living room. Off the second bedroom is an enclosed courtyard with a table and chairs. Upstairs the kitchen looks onto the owners garden, and the front onto the street. It has just been fully refurbished and an excellent job has been done throughout. There is heating included in the price and parking is availiable if you have a medium or small car. We had a larger car, but had no problems at all parking in the road, there always was plenty of spaces. The owners were very kind and recommended a great Chinese takeaway. Delivery was free and it was delicious. The apartment had every thing you could conceivable need, and the owners had provided leaflets for every local interest, places to stay and activities, including the latest weekly free paper with more information. There are flatscreen tv's and HD satelite boxes in the 2 bedrooms and living rooms plus dvd players in the main bedroom and the livingroom. A large selection of DVD's were availiable plus books and a cupboards full of games. Free Wifi is also availiable. We had a lovely stay here and would recommend this to friends.
