Sometimes you just need to escape from a hectic life – why not head for holiday apartments on the coast for fresh air and a sense of renewal?

The Sanctuary provides stylish accommodation in the heart of central Eastbourne situated just off the seafront in the highly sought after Devonshire / Meades Conservation area. This luxury apartment is set in an attractive Italian influenced modern building (constructed in 2011) with only one apartment per floor and located on a quiet tranquil side street just a few minutes’ walk to the many restaurants, pubs, theatres, shops and attractions of Eastbourne.

The Sanctuary offers an enticing combination of facilities, great value and an unbeatable location.

The beach, southern coastline, Grand Parade, and the glorious 6km stretch of Eastbourne’s Promenade are 300 feet from the apartment, literally at the street end. A short 4 minute walk north along the Promenade leads to the Eastbourne Bandstand where you can enjoy a variety of concerts and bands. An additional 4 minute walk along the Promenade, from the Bandstand, leads to the historical Eastbourne Pier with its variety of shops, café/bar, tea rooms, night club, and fantastic views of the English Channel.

Just 300 feet from the apartment places you in prime position on the seafront to enjoy the annual International Airshow, with a host of trade stands and the huge beach as the ideal location to catch all the flying action.

The South Down Downs National Park is a convenient 3.0 mile trip by car or taxi and is also great for people on walking adventures. Enjoy an invigorating clifftop walk along Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, the chalk cliffs of England’s Sussex coast which are as iconic of England as Big Ben, Tower Bridge and the Queen.

Explore the vibrant shopping and dining quarter of Little Chelsea, a 6 minute walk from the apartment.

The sanctuary - lovely place, modern, new, clean, quiet. The hosts were excellent and totally looked after me before and during my check-in and of course at check out. Really nice people who were only too happy to help.

The Sanctuary is beautiful, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is the perfect place for guests wanting to enjoy the seafront or attractions throughout the town. It is within easy walking distance of the train station for trips to London or other attractions. The street is very quiet at night so the location is peaceful and relaxing. We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this location.

The Sanctuary is clean, comfortable and centrally located on a quiet street. It is close to the seafront and within easy walking distance from many local attractions as well as the train station for longer excursions. The Sanctuary is modern and has all the amenities required for a relaxing stay. Two bathrooms make it ideal for a family or two couples.

An extremely comfortable and well equipped apartment close to the beach and the center of Eastbourne. Calm & relaxing décor helps you to forget you are so close to shops, theatres, cafes and bars. Amazingly quiet - no street noise at all. All the letting agency staff we met and spoke to were friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend this apartment.

We'll be back! We SO enjoyed our first staycation in Eastbourne, and much of that was because this flat is so close to everything, so quiet, so comfortable, so well equipped and so spacious. Thanks to the team and we look forward to being able to drop back again another time!
