Extraordinary villa with private pool and views of the South Downs

Searching for luxury holiday cottages or a villa with private pool? Fairways provides a sensational holiday home in the most delightful location, overlooking the fairways of the nearby Royal Eastbourne Golf Course and the foot of the South Downs.

With a private swimming pool (heated from mid June to mid September), a well-maintained enclosed garden and a wonderful setting, this four-bedroom holiday home provides the perfect base for extended families or friends looking for an idyllic escape.

This unique house has an ‘upside-down’ design, with the main living space on the top floor (which is also the entry floor as the house is set on a slope) and the bedrooms, bathrooms and a second sitting room downstairs.



We can currently only accept bookings for groups of up to six people from different households.  Larger numbers can be accepted if they are a single household, or household and support bubble.  

Prices for September and October have been reduced to reflect these smaller numbers (and if the ruling remains, we will roll out lower prices for additional months).  We are hoping that larger groups will be permitted in 2021, but will need to stay in line with government regulations.


The entrance from street level opens into a wide, welcoming hallway which leads to a wonderfully spacious dining lounge, with captivating views over the countryside through huge floor-to-ceiling windows.

The dining table comfortably seats eight, and there is a large L-shaped sofa and additional comfy seating with the perfect vantage point to enjoy the scenery and relax.  Or step out on to the balcony, which overlooks the swimming pool and garden. A TV and DVD player are available if you can tear yourself away from the view.

The separate kitchen is well equipped with fridge-freezer, oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and a breakfast table for informal snacks or to catch up on your emails. A utility room houses a washing machine, dryer and second fridge freezer, plus there is a toilet/cloakroom on this level for easy access.

Step downstairs and there is a second sitting room, with an additional TV and games provided – ideal if the children want their own space or you can’t agree what to watch!

The master bedroom has a super kingsize bed and an entire wall of fitted wardrobes – so no need to skimp on your packing!  The second and third bedrooms are also large with fitted wardrobes – one has a super kingsize bed, while the other is a twin. The fourth, smaller twin bedroom is reserved for children – so the house can accommodate up to six adults and two children.

The main family bathroom has a bath and a separate walk in shower, plus there is a second shower room.

Luxury holiday cottages well situated for cycling holidays

The tranquil location close to Eastbourne’s historic Old Town offers easy access to the South Downs National Park, with trails up to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters for exhilarating cliff-top walks or great biking, while the attractions and facilities of Eastbourne are also within easy reach.

Eastbourne Old Town offers atmospheric history, with a 12th century church with Norman elements offering food for the soul, whilst The Lamb pub (also dating from the 12th century) provides more practical sustenance and conviviality.  Waitrose supermarket is close by for any necessary supplies or perhaps delights for a picnic you could enjoy in Gildredge Park or Motcombe Gardens.

If you fancy venturing further afield, why not catch the Coaster bus?   You can jump aboard at the main road at the top of Pashley Road, and this makes stops all along the coast to Brighton – it is a fabulous way to see the sights. You can also hop off at a point and trek back – for example there is a lovely walk from Exeat across the Seven Sisters back to Eastbourne.

The garden of this villa with private pool is attractive and well maintained, with patio furniture and sun loungers available for your enjoyment.   Parents are asked to supervise children at all times – while the pool is fenced off for safety, there is also a laburnum tree in the grounds, which must not be touched as the plant and fruit are poisonous.  Parents should also be aware that there is an original 1970s ‘ranch style’ design staircase, with horizontal planks that could be tempting climb, so they should take care to close doors to the hallway if they have small children.

There is driveway parking for two cars, plus additional parking in the street. WiFi is provided, along with towels and linen, and a travel cot and/or high chair is available on request.  This is a quiet, residential area, so parties are not permitted at this property. This is a great option for relaxation for those wanting to book Sussex holiday cottages.

There is a week long minimum stay, with a Friday changeover in peak season, at this villa with private pool.  This holiday home is also an excellent short term rental, for stays of several weeks or a month.

Superior Holiday Home in Eastbourne. This wonderful, spacious holiday home left nothing to the imagination. The children loved the private pool and the adults loved the chef's kitchen that overlooked the golf course. We found the rooms full of charm and ultra clean. We all agreed that the location was breathtaking (especially the twinkling of the stars and Eastbourne by night). There were plenty of places to hide and the children agreed too!!!!If you are looking for a 'celebrity' house for the summer then this is the one for you.

Perfect in every way! Fairways is a stunning home. We loved every moment of our stay and we're sad to leave. The lush gardens and the view beyond of the golf course and downs were captivating and every effort was made to ensure our comfort. Our grandchildren loved the swimming pool and the toys and games so thoughtfully provided were an unexpected treat. We are grateful to Sarah for all that she did to accommodate us after a long trip and for her kindness and support.

Amazing view. This house is wonderful, with a fantastic view from the lounge window. You never get tired of looking at it. The house is situated in a very nice area, with lovely properties surrounding it. It is very nicely furnished with everything you need. The pool was very good even though we only had a couple of days weatherwise to use it. It is heated which does help. There are some lovely walks from the property and you can be on Eastbourne seafront after about 20 minutes walk. The buses and trains are very frequent for getting around. We only used the car once in 10 days, and that was to visit the very pretty village of Alfriston. I can highly recommend this property

Welcomed on arrival and given a tour of house. The house is very spacious, clean and well equipped. The view from the lounge over the golf course is stunning. The pool is great, we all spent lots of time in there, lots of pool toys and inflatables.

Fantastic stay at Fairways. Sarah and Carl really took great care of getting us settled in. The house is amazing for golfers and non-golfers alike. Just like in the photos on the site. Happy family times!

There is a week-long minimum stay and bookings run from Saturday to Saturday in peak season, although flexible arrival days may be possible out of season.

The house is strictly no smoking and parties are not permitted. Guests must respect the pool rules (see full terms and conditions) and children must be supervised at all times, as there is a laburnum tree in the grounds (plant/fruit are poisonous) and a steep stairway internally.

Costs include the weekly rent, a £30 booking fee and a returnable £500 security deposit. To book requires an immediate, non-refundable deposit of £200 per week booked (booking fee and a portion of the rent) and then the balance, including the security deposit, is due by no later than six weeks before your arrival. For stays of three weeks or more, you may be asked to pay a higher security deposit.

The checkout time is 10am on the day of departure – a fine may be applied if you do not leave on time. Please leave the property in good order – dispose of rubbish in external bins and wash up any pots/dishes or place in the dishwasher and switch on before you leave. If the accommodation is left in an unreasonable state, requiring deep cleaning, the cost for this will be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit will be returned to you within 1-2 weeks of your departure, minus any deduction for damage, loss or excessive cleaning required.

The property can only be used for the maximum number shown on the booking correspondence. It must not be used for improper, illegal or immoral purposes. Guests must not sub-let the property and must not change, add, move or remove any items of furniture, furnishings or structures inside or outside. Guests must not cause (nor allow any visitors to cause) any nuisance, annoyance or disturbance to neighbours, the property owner or the property owner’s agent.
