Enjoy the finest Eastbourne holiday cottages, apartments and homes

As seen on ITV Tonight, 9 July 2020

Our extra-special Eastbourne holiday cottages and holiday homes offer the perfect base for a self catering break in Eastbourne and East Sussex. So enjoy a dip in the sea, stroll along the promenade, hike along Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, show at the theatres or simply lounge by your swimming pool.

We’re Covid-Ready, so plan your trip to the seaside for a Great British staycation this year!

England Lockdown Rules

Our properties remain open for temporary or emergency accommodation (for example, if you are between houses, if you are working locally or if your home has been flooded). Sadly, we can’t offer accommodation for holidays for immediate stays, but you can book ahead for holidays from April 12th – Hurrah!!

Expect rigorous cleaning and sanitising routines prior to your arrival, contact-less check-ins and electronic welcome guides but have confidence that we are here for you seven days a week for help and advice (if you develop symptoms whilst with us click here).

Which lovely location and property to go for?

Choose to stay in the heart of Eastbourne or leafy Meads village, enjoy waterside-living in Sovereign Harbour, historic Old Town, take in the huge skies at Pevensey Bay or head for the idyllic villages of East Dean and Friston. or  perhaps a South Downs holiday cottage.

Each hand-picked self catering Eastbourne holiday home comes fully equipped with modern TVs, crockery, cutlery, linen and towels – plus WiFi of course.  We can even provide a travel cot if you are on holiday with a baby – so you can spend more time planning your adventures, rather than packing the car.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic break, family holiday, stay in the country or are in need of group or dog friendly accommodation, call us now on +44 (0)1323 40 60 90 to discuss the best self catering Eastbourne holiday cottages and lets.

As the largest locally-based independent holiday rental business, who live and breathe Eastbourne, we can offer you a wealth of local area knowledge and advice. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional service, and offer a personal meet and greet at most of our properties – either ourselves or through our welcoming property owners – although not during this current crisis when a contactless check-in is provided.

Our friendly, locally based Exclusively Eastbourne team remains available seven days a week to answer any queries you have during your break or to help you through any difficulties – in person, via email or our Live Chat feature on the website, or on the phone.

All our team live and work around Eastbourne so know the area intimately and can recommend what activities to see and do, the best places to eat out and every holiday home like the back of our hands. Nobody will know more about Eastbourne so let us help you get the most out of your stay!

Got a property that would make a good holiday let?

We have a full menu of services for our holiday home owners – You can choose our sales and marketing service only or a fully managed service where we manage the housekeeping and maintain your property, or indeed anything in between!
