Home for cottage holidays close to South Downs Way

This charming property in the sought after Meads area of Eastbourne is very popular accommodation for cottage holidays. Perfect for friends and family looking for a quiet escape.

Close to genteel Meads high street, this holiday cottage has been completely refurbished with a new kitchen, and new carpeting and furniture throughout, to provide a modern, but comfortable and spacious house to sleep up to six people (with each in separate beds if preferred).

There is a large master bedroom with kingsize bed (capable of splitting into two single beds for extra flexibility), two built-in wardrobes offering good storage space, plus a dressing table with drawers.

The second bedroom has twin beds and again provides good built-in storage plus drawers (no need to be stingy when you are packing your suitcase!) and the third bedroom has quality bunk beds (with full-size single beds) so will be an excellent choice for both children or adults.

The spotless, modern bathroom has a bath with shower over for ease and flexibility.

On the ground floor is a spacious, open-plan lounge-diner across the whole width of the house.  The sociable dining table seats six and overlooks the private rear garden – with the patio doors open you can breakfast with birdsong drifting in!   The lounge has two sofas in front of the TV and DVD player, plus a chill-out seating area at the other end – ideal for reading, working or studying.

The separate new kitchen is stylish and well equipped, with washer-dryer, dishwasher, double oven, microwave, fridge freezer, kettle and cafetiere, plus all the utensils you’d expect in high quality self catering accommodation.

The private rear garden captures the afternoon sun nicely and has a table and chairs to relax in. There is a small pond (around 30cm deep) so care must be taken with children who must not be left unattended.  The well-maintained landscaped communal areas at the front of the property are for quiet enjoyment and are therefore not suitable as a play or games area.

All linen and towels are provided, with additional linen supplied for stays of more than a week. Free Wifi is provided and there is also parking available in the private garage, with other spaces available on the street nearby.

Moira House school is less than 10 minutes walk away, whilst St Andrews and Bedes schools are both around 15 minutes walk.  Brighton University’s Denton Rd campus is only 3 minutes walk.

You’ll find the independent shops and cafes on Meads High Street a delight or head into central Eastbourne, to the theatres or the beach (again, just 15 minute walks away) so this is a perfect location fo cottage holidays.

The house is situated in a very peaceful, residential enclave which will appeal to respectful, understanding guests. Given the setting, no parties are allowed here.

Perfect stay in Eastbourne. We spent 15 days in this apartment. Quiet, clean and with a great service is just what we needed. Location for us was perfect though it can take you 25 minutes walk to the pier. Not far there are a couple of supermarkets that cater for almost any need. I would certainly come back should I need it.
