Period features and modern finish in this stylish holiday apartment
High ceilings, sash windows and elegant period features enhance the tranquil period atmosphere, whilst chic furnishings and a modern finish provide the practicalities and style for today’s more demanding holidaymakers.
Set on the first floor (so stairs are involved), Thorne Lodge has an open-plan living space which is tastefully appointed yet comfortable and practical. After a busy day having fun, you can relax on the sofa or an armchair in front of the flatscreen Smart TV, with access to BBCiPlayer, Netfix and other internet-based services as well as the usual digital channels. Or if your child has a favourite film, there’s a DVD player to pop it into.
The spacious master bedroom of this stylish holiday apartment can be set up as a kingsize or with twin beds and has a wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage. The smaller second bedroom has bunk beds, which are popular with children, but these are also suitable for adults, being full-size single mattresses. Sleeping up to four, this is ideal for families, but could also appeal to workers sharing who each want separate beds.
The kitchen offers a hob and oven, microwave, fridge and all the utensils and cutlery you’ll need in a stylish holiday apartment. There is also a small washing machine available plus iron, ironing board and hair dryer.
The family bathroom has a bath with shower over, plus a small washing machine. WiFi is provided free of charge, plus crisp white linen and fluffy towels. You’ll even find enough tea, coffee and milk for a welcome drink, plus complementary toiletries to get you started.
Parking is on street and you can pick up permits for just £1 per day on arrival although being located in such a central location means that you don’t need a car.
Don’t miss out on a clifftop walk along Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters and into East Dean and Friston within the South Down Downs National Park which is just an invigorating walk away. The welcome pack within the apartment is packed with other ideas on places to visit in and around Eastbourne, such as the historical sites around Pevensey Bay or read our blog or email us for advice and recommendations.
C'est franchement excellent, de très bonnes vacances au mois d'aout avec Airbourne le fameux spectrale aéronautique au bord de la mer. l'appartement est équipé correctement, cuisine, salle de bains etc + wifi....Il ne manque rien. Proche de la mer, du centre ville et de la gare, si on veut aller à Londres ou ailleurs. Que dire d'autres ? Merci aux propriétaires pour leur gentillesse et leur dévouement.
We rented this holiday flat through Carl and Sarah Stanger with whom we had dealt before so we were confident that what they told us about the property was true. We were not disappointed. Sarah was there when we arrived to give us the keys and show us around. we were delighted to find everywhere spotless which was very important to us. Beds and bedding were comfortable and the place very bright and airy. There was even enough armchair seating for everyone without any squabbles! The location is great too. Five minute walk to sea front and about the same to train station and shopping centre. We would surely recommend this beautiful flat to anyone and would stay there again.
We stayed at this property in early April and booked it based on a review by an earlier occupier. The photos on Tripadviser were an accurate indication of the flat which had apparently only recently become available. We were made to feel very welcome by the agents acting on behalf of the owners. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the flat was truly spotless with most if not all the kitchen equipment and furniture almost new. As far as location is concerned, you could not really be better positioned. The railway station , seafront and large shopping center are literally a few minutes walk away. We took our car but in reality, it was not necessary for us. Parking could be an issue in the peak holiday periods as with all coastal resorts, but you can buy daily parking permits for £1 a day from the agents. Cannot really think of anything negative to say about our own experience here and would certainly stay here again if we decide to revisit.
“We spent one week in Eastbourne and had a very good time. The appartment was exactly as described and very comfortable and beautiful decorated. The rooms are flooded with light. The Kitchen has everything we needed and is very functional. My children loved their bedroom with the double bank bed and I slept very well...The appartment is situated very close to the town center and the sea. I can really recommend this pretty flat and the service of Carl and Sarah. Thank you very much.”
Everything was exactly as discribed and sometimes even better. Nice cosy flat, both comfortable and pretty. Quite ideally located street. Close to center, close to the sea. Hardly one car passes in 5 minutes. We were two adults and 2 kids. Both main and kids bedrooms are brilliant. Huge windows. Lots of light when you need it (good blinds). Lots of interesting reading, board games for all ages. Functional kitchen... What we really are trying to say is that we had a great time in the appartment and would recommend it to any family of our size. Thanx to Carl and Sarah!
A great base to explore the East Sussex coastline. Comfortable accommodation with everything we needed for our stay. The location was very central to both the town centre and the beach. A very reasonable rate for half term too. I would recommend getting the train to Brighton though as parking was a nightmare and cost £32 for 6 hours! The Redoubt Fort scary evening tour was ok but lacked imagination in bringing the ghost stories to life. Hastings, Rye and Worthing are all worth a visit too. Eastbourne beach was clean with lovely walks along the coast.
Great place, very good hosts, quick replies!
