Not only is Eastbourne blessed as the sunniest place in the UK, but it is also recognised by a growing audience of travel writers as a place on the up.

The article highlights that this part of the Sussex coast is not only more affordable than our flashier neighbour Brighton, but elegant with bags of old-school charm.

There is still a considerable job to be done to shift the perception of our town as the old lady of the south coast, but perhaps this is why the beach always offers a sense of space, the pier remains charming and fabulous housing within the reach of everyday folk.

Nice to see the article also recommending our sister business, The Guesthouse East, as the place to stay for young families. The beach might be pebbly, but the water is clear and swimming safe meaning that the Eastbourne seafront is always popular with families.

Our blog writer, Carl Stanger, has also received recognition as a finalist in MyTravelMoney.co.uk’s Top 10 lifestyle blogs, following on from Lastminute.com’s Top 10 Travel blogs for The Guesthouse East’s blog.

The award-winning guest house in Eastbourne is unique, offering 4-star silver-rated self catering suites by the night.
