Eastbourne self catering accommodation close to the theatres, beach and attractions

If you’re looking for Eastbourne self catering accommodation, this needs to offer you everything you have back home, but with sea air, a beach across the road and relaxation within moments of arriving.

Immaculate cleanliness, all mod cons and a fully kitted out kitchen are essentials. How about if we provide these as a base and then layer on a balcony (perfect for breakfasts), lift access to your door and interior design to put a smile on your face?

The Playwright, moments from Devonshire Park and Congress theatres, could become an instant classic when it comes to Eastbourne holiday apartments – think toasty underfloor heating, full Sky package including movies and sports (well, you don’t want to miss the action when you’re away do you?) plus stylish and sumptuously comfortable accommodation in one of Eastbourne’s prime locations.

Part of a small collection of exclusive, tranquil apartments in central Eastbourne, this Eastbourne self catering accommodation has two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a delightful contemporary design.

Turn right from the building for Favoloso, Bill Bryson’s favourite ice cream parlour, the theatres and Towner Gallery, head straight on the for beach or turn left for the iconic Eastbourne pier. Or head ‘inland’ with a five-minute walk instead for The Beacon, with brand new cinema screens and top notch shopping,

This is assuming you can pull yourself away from invigorating cliff-top walk along Beachy Head, the Seven Sisters and the South Downs National Park.

Modern holiday apartment in a sought-after location

Think stacks of natural light and an open plan living area. Elegantly furnished, with a large sofa, several armchairs and an  appropriately large Smart TV (did we mention Sky Sports?), you won’t know whether to stay indoors to enjoy your holiday apartment or to make the most of Eastbourne.

There is a modern, fully-equipped kitchen including an oven, hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, Nespresso coffee machine and even an indulgent wine cooler.  With bar stools against the generous worktop, there is informal dining for four.

This modern holiday apartment sleeps up to four across the two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.  The master bedroom boasts a kingsize bed and a spotless ensuite shower room, while the second bedroom is a double.   There is also a family bathroom, with a bath where you can have a lovely soak, so no queuing for the facilities.

Linen and regular towels are provided (bring your own beach towels) with additional linen and towels provided to guests who are staying longer than a week, as with all our holiday apartments Eastbourne. Free WiFi is also available and included.

The train station, with direct links to London, Brighton and Ashford International is less than 10 minute walk away, so a car is far from essential but parking permits are available for just £2 per day (free on Sundays) which allow you to park across a wide-section of Eastbourne.

We stayed at the Playwright whilst having internal building works carried out. The flat is well equipped and spacious and within a 5 min walk to the town centre and minutes from seafront. What is nice is that there are only 6 flats in the block, one per floor so no disturbance from others and even though the lift backs onto the bedroom it is very quiet and again helped by only being a small number of flats. Carl and Sarah were quick to respond when the washing machine leaked and resulted in a new one being delivered a few days later. They kindly arranged for our washing to be laundered in the meantime. Carl and Sarah are always quick to respond to emails or phone calls when applicable. Would have no hesitation in using or recommending Carl and Sarah in the future should the need arise. Thank you.

Genial apartamento para pasar unos dias en Eastbourne. Cercano a la playa, en una zona tranquila. Carl y Sarah nos proporcionaron información para visitar Eastbourne y alrededores. Siempre contestan rápido a las preguntas que se les envia y facilitan las cosas! Genial!! (Google Translate: Great apartment to spend a few days in Eastbourne. Close to the beach, in a quiet area. Carl and Sarah provided us with information to visit Eastbourne and the surrounding area. They always answer questions that are sent to them quickly and make things easier! Great!!)

Excellent hosts and extremely good responses to our needs and wants in a well equipped apartment. Well worth a stay in the middle of Eastbourne's theatre district and close to the sea. Thanks.

Carl & Sarah’s apartment is a wonderful apartment, it is very stylish, very well equipped and in a fantastic location (one street to beach front and close to supermarkets, shopping centres and eateries). The communications from Carl & Sarah was also very good, any questions answered quickly and very helpful. There is parking available on the street (and we did not have an issue finding a space) although, so close to the amenities that we didn’t need to use our car much. (we also used the train from Eastbourne to Brighton) which was a great day trip. Permits needed for parking but supplied at a very reasonable price by Carl & Sarah (so would recommend). The apartment itself has everything you could need, kitchenware, glasses etc, plenty seating and dining area, and the beds are super comfortable. We would highly recommend staying here, we just loved Eastbourne, you will not regret it x

We stayed at Carl and Sarah's flat for 2 weeks. The place is beautiful and makes you feel at home. The flat is in a nice place: near the sea, the city centre and good quality cafes. The flat has everything you need, what was important for us, which happens quite rarely, it was very quiet: no outside noise, you can't hear the neighbors or cars. Sarah and Carl were very good hosts, we managed to leave behind on accident a couple of expensive stuff and they concerted us about it straight away. Thank you very much! We highly recommend this flat to everyone!
