Pleasant family house. Very pleasant and comfortable terraced house, well situated in the Old Town of Eastbourne very close to Gildredge Park, the Lamb Inn and Waitrose supermarket. The open fire in the living room is a plus.

Perfect family accommodation. We stayed her for a week in July 2018, the house is fully equipped for a family holiday (board games, WiFi, books and videos). Close by (3 minute walk) is a good pub for food, an Indian takeaway, Waitrose and a convenience store. Travel in to Eastbourne is easy and fairly traffic free. We used the train to go to London which again was hassle free from the station in town. The back garden is fairly small but there is a safe park across the road for ball games etc... Parking can be an issue on the road as its a residential area, but we always managed to get a space somewhere on the road Beds, sofas, towels and bedding were all spotless and comfortable. A good value find, which I would go back to, good service provided by Exclusively Eastbourne from booking inquiry to leaving the property

Great house in a great location. Free parking on the street, 5 minutes to the buses which run to Eastbourne Centre, plus to Seven Sisters and Brighton. Much easier than getting parking nearer in. Also only 5 mins to Waitrose so everything is on your doorstep. Carl and Sarah recommenced the cafe at Gildredge Park “Love all cafe” which served lovely breakfasts and we had a game of tennis in the free courts as well. The house is very tastefully decorated with good Wi-fi/radio in the kitchen so felt like a home from home. Thank you for coming to meet us to when we arrived. Much appreciated after our journey down and that it was Friday evening.

Lovely cosy home. Situated in a nice area near shops and buses leading to central Eastbourne and over to Brighton. The house is very beautifully decorated, warm and comfortable with all essentials. Also, the company made a few suggestions about where to go and I can second making use of Gildredge Park where there is a gorgeous cafe and free tennis courts.
