Holiday accommodation in Seaford

Seaford is a delightfully tranquil coastal town in East Sussex, just 10 miles west of Eastbourne.

With a population of just 27,000 Seaford provides a wonderful opportunity to escape from busy, urban lives and to walk and run along the promenade, frollick in the waves or head along the cliffs of Seaford Head for invigorating hikes and lung-fulls of fresh air.

There is a traditional flavour to the town, with the ice cream parlour, Driftwood Garden to explore and the Nepolionic-era Martello tower and museum.

Walk over Seaford head at the eastern end of town and down into Cuckmere Haven which provides a family-friendly mile-long meander to the estuary, surrounded by wildlife. From the Cuckmere river the walk heads up to the start of the Seven Sisters and the awesome cliff-top walks leading to Eastbourne and the end of the South Downs Way.
