The property

This immaculately-presented, superbly-located, semi-detached coastal cottage is situated next to the owner's home, on the edge of Normans Bay, long ago a popular landing place for smugglers and now a favourite haunt for fishermen, beachcombers and watersports enthusiasts.

This lovely self-catering cottage offers families and couples the perfect place to stay when looking for a coastal retreat with style and character.

The spacious sitting room boasts coastal views and has a warm welcome whatever the time of year, with its electric woodburner to either take the chill off a winter's evening while watching a DVD together or just to give a mellow glow to enhance a romantic evening for two as you enjoy a glass of wine and share a delicious meal together.

The two attractive bedrooms invite guests to settle down for a good night's sleep where blackout blinds ensure they will not be woken by the first light of dawn, just take a little care when stepping onto the stairs from the twin bedroom.

Guests can also enjoy sea views from the king-size double bedroom, a wonderful sight to wake up to.

The well-equipped kitchen also has a breakfast bar so if time is precious and you want to make the most of the day, why not just pour yourself a morning coffee before setting off to explore this part of the Sussex coastline?

Perfectly positioned between Eastbourne and Bexhill, the pebble beach of Normans Bay is a beachcomber’s delight with stunning views over to Beachy Head.

This charming holiday home also sits on the boarder of The Pevensey Levels, a huge attraction for those who enjoy cycling, walking and birdwatching.

Pevensey Castle is only a short drive away, and if historic places of interest are on your holiday agenda then you couldn't have chosen better than this cottage, with Battle and Hastings less than 30 minutes' away.

This holiday cottage is a gem at any time of year.

About the location


Bexhill-on-Sea 4.6 miles; Eastbourne 6.5 miles; Hastings 10 miles; Brighton 20 miles.

The village of Normans Bay, situated between Eastbourne and Bexhill-on-Sea is so named as it was once believed to be the coastline where the Norman invasion took place in 1066, however this area would have been underwater at that time and only became coastal a few centuries ago! Normans Bay offers a pebble beach, which is a magnet for boat owners and fishermen, plus this part of the coastline is also great for windsurfers and kite-flying. Alternatively, sit on the sea wall and admire the views of the South Downs, a wonderful sight especially in the evening as the sun sets. The Star Inn, once a haven for smugglers, is a 10 minute walk away across the Pevensey Levels and offers excellent home cooked food, plus the village even has its own railway, linking the mainline stations along the coast, from where you can visit Eastbourne, Hastings, Brighton and even London. Also four miles west along the coast is the fishing port and yacht haven of Sovereign Harbour, where you can dine on the quayside at one of the many restaurants, cafes or the tapas bar. Inland from Sovereign Harbour is the Crumbles Retail Park with its shops, supermarket, cinema and gym. This part of Sussex is an ideal place to relax and unwind, drink in the sea air and listen to the waves roll in.
