Eastbourne and the Year of the Great British Staycation

Eastbourne and the Year of the Great British Staycation

Finally, thankfully, Eastbourne is open and providing the backdrop for summer adventures, escapes and seaside staycations. After being cooped up for months Britons have decided that now is the time for fresh air, dips in the sea and a stroll on the prom.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many people have recognised that self-catering holiday homes in…

Family holidays in Eastbourne

What’s not to like about family holidays in Eastbourne? Eastbourne is the sunniest place in the UK, so that’s a helpful start. As much as I can happily recall eating sand-filled sandwiches, whilst hiding behind a groyne from driving wind at rain on the beach at Skegness as a child, it surely has to be better when the sun’s out?

Tinsel, Shingle and Fizz – Hot Tub Breaks This Festive Period!

I had to scrape ice off the car this morning so it seems strange to think about stripping off and having a outdoor dip. It’s slightly different when you consider that the water is around 35 degrees and you’re sitting in a hot tub on a private terrace overlooking the beach and sea! You have the opportunity to enjoy a brand new property in our portfolio – the most extraordinary Bubbles on the Beach! This beach cottage makes for perfect…
