Description from owner
Located near the sea front and in Hastings historic old town, Potting Cottage offers the ideal escape for a romantic weekend for two or for a longer and leisurely break. It is an early 19th century fisherman's cottage that oozes charm and cosiness. Attached at its side is a smoke house that the fishermen would use to prepare the days catch of fish. Made fully residential in the late 1970's, both the smoke house and the cottage have been recently converted into this snug hideaway for holiday makers. The conversion retains the cottages rustic character while having been transformed into a special and stylish holiday home experience.
From the moment you enter, you will set your eyes upon the living room's centre piece the original early 19th century stone fire place newly restored and equipped with a with a wood burning stove. The room has solid wooden floors a new sofa bed and an antique armchair. There is a 32" LCD TV with built in DVD and Freeview. The living room also contains an antique wooden dining table that seats four. Accessed by patio doors, is a small private courtyard which can be lit by fairy lights, the courtyard is equipped with a portable barbeque and four chairs and table.
Located in the lower part of the old smoke house, the kitchen is compact and equipped for all needs containing a four ring ceramic hob cooker, washing machine, dish washer, fridge with ice box and microwave. There is also a kettle, toaster and stove top espresso maker. The kitchen has a supply of spices, herbs, oil & vinegar, tea, coffee and sugar.
On the first floor you will discover the atmospheric bedroom with a vaulted ceiling from which hangs a vintage chandelier. The room contains a small built in cupboard and a TV, DVD and Freeview. the comfortable king size bed can be easily detached into two single beds. From the bedroom you have access to the bathroom, which was converted from the top part of the smoke house. Here you will find a walk in shower, toilet, basin, mirrored bathroom cabinet containing a shaver point and heated towel rail.
The cottage is ideally suited for one or two adults as it contains one bedroom with en suite bathroom. However the main bed can be divided into two single beds if required or there is option of using the sofa bed downstairs. Please note that although the cottage is on two floors the general layout is open plan and the only access to the bathroom is through the bedroom. We can not accept more than two guests per booking. We are happy to have up to two small house trained dogs stay, we provide a roll out bed and food and water bowls. Towels and bedsheets are provided. we also provide beach towels for in the warmer months. The cottage has free WiFi. There is a picnic hamper and a portable barbeque left for you to take out on days to the beach or the East Hill country park.
As the cottage is situated on a twittern (footpath) there is no parking, however there are 2 pay and display carparks about 5 to 10 mins walk away and for loading and un-loading you can use an adjacent street. Within the Old Town everything is within walking distance so a car isn't a necessity.
Do also be aware that as this is a coastal town there is naturally a noticeable population of sea gulls and sometimes they can be noisy.

“Perfect Potting Cottage”
We stayed in Potting Cottage for a week. Everything about the cottage was perfect. It was very clean and to a high standard. We were situated in the heart of Hastings old town with easy access to everything. The cottage had a very well equipped kitchen, we didn't miss anything. The bed was very comfortable and huge and it had a great shower. The cottage was also very cool inside...Perfect after coming back after a very hot day out. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely will be back.
“Lovely cottage right in the Old Town”

“Lovely quaint cottage”
Potting cottage was the perfect place for us to stay over the Easter break. It is central for shops, bars, restaurants and the beach!! The cottage itself is very cosy and quaint and had everything we needed to enjoy our break. Most comfortable bed ever!!! Helen and Marc also provided us with a lovely welcome pack, which was a great added extra to everything already provided. We will definitely like to stay again. Loved Hastings itself with it's history and lovely walks on the cliffs.
Owner's reply: Thank you Mary for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Hastings and Potting Cottage soon.
This beautiful cottage is perfectly equipped, stylishly decorated, absolutely comfortable, ideally located, and immaculately clean. We are thrilled to be staying here! The owners have provided everything you could possibly need and want. The welcome package was a wonderful bonus. Our bed is super comfy and the linens and towels are lovely. The shower is excellent. We truly appreciated the dishwasher and the washing machine as we are here for an extended stay. The cottage is within walking distance to all the great restaurants, pubs and shops. We highly recommend Potting Cottage. It is,by far, one of the very best self catering spots we have had the pleasure of renting. Thank you Marc and Helen!
Owner's reply: So glad you had a good time in Pottings and Hastings, look forward to welcoming you back soon.
