  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our third visit to this lovely flat."

    As always it was spotlessly clean and generous welcome gifts were waiting for us, thank you Mia and Ashley. We had great walks along the seafront in Bexhill, Eastbourne and Hastings, the latter two easily reached by train. We also enjoyed an excellent meal at the Italian Trattoria restaurant around the corner. Looking forward to our next visit which is already booked for next year!

    Its just perfect for a peaceful break. Lovely walks along the coast in either direction, shops on the doorstep. Lower Deck is warm and cosy, very comfortable and immaculately presented. A welcome pack of fresh flowers and a basket full of goodies awaits you. Can't wait to book another week soon.

  • "Charming seaside themed flat in a superb location."

    Very compact. I believe a single sized wardrobe would benefit us who have dresses, blouses, shirts, trousers. The parking permits were a boon to people such as us being slightly disabled, no more driving around looking for parking spaces. Mia was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

    Just a short walk to the end of the road and you are on the promenade or round the corner to restaurants and shops. As a basement flat it was also lovely and cool, given the temperatures during the week. Very happy and hope to stay again with Mia in the future.

    There was excellent attention to detail with fabulously well equipped kitchen and extremely generous welcome basket. Hosts clearly really want guests to have a first rate experience ...a nd we did! Accommodation was warm and welcoming and h as a dedicated ventilation system so no issues with being a garden flat. We stayed for New Year and Lower Deck was really well positioned for all the local amenities including restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops. We walked on the prom every day in between showers of rain and even saw some sunshine so it was different every day. All round an excellent break.

    Mia goes to a lot of trouble to ensure it is welcoming, clean, cosy and has everything you could possibly need for a special holiday. We appreciated the welcome basket and the Christmas decorations. We had lovely long walks along the promenade, shopped locally and had an excellent meal at the Trattoria Italian restaurant round the corner. We also enjoyed the Steve Harley show and dinner at the De La Warr Pavilion. And we shopped and walked In Eastbourne twice, the second time by train which was easy and quick. We hope to return next year. Thank you Mia and Ashley

  • "Was a big disappointment, no hand rails on stairs, small step up leading to lounge, toilet and bathroom was poor."

    Found the tv and hob difficult to used. Misleading photo of the French door area, though it was more private than sitting in the street. I was very worried triping up in the early hours on the layout of the let. We decided not to stay even one night, booked a taxi home and left at 10pm which was very expensive but necessary.

    To avoid disappointment in the future I would recommend reading the property description carefully and in full before booking. Lower Deck is exactly as described on the website. I wish you every success for the future in finding accomodation better suited to your requirements. Regards Mia. Property Owner

    A small but rarely busy car park is situated only 50 yards along Eversley Road, and costs just £5 per day. Overnight is free. The immediate area is very quiet too, both day and night, so no problem sleeping! Convenient for the railway station, and for delightful Eastbourne and Battle. Lovely sea front and promenade, especially with the art deco De La Warr pavilion. Have a coffee on its terrace. Delightful on a sunny day! Fascinating town history too. Visit the interactive, and far from stuffy Bexhill museum. Would certainly book again.

A car is not needed because local buses and trains [the station is just up the road] offer a good service. Shops are close by; Co-op and Sainsburys in particular for groceries. Try the Cinnamon Café [near the Bricklayers' Arms] for a Mediterranean menu! And Mia and Ashley responded very quickly to answer a [slight] problem. Thoroughly recommended.

The property

Nestled in the heart of the popular seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea rests this delightful holiday home, Lower Deck.

Set a stone's throw away from the picturesque beachfront, Lower Deck offers an idyllic base for a romantic escape to the charming coastline of East Sussex.

Stepping into the property, ascend a small number of stairs and enter into a handy hallway space, offering storage to house your belongings away from the main areas of the house, where you can freshen up in the cloakroom before venturing further.

Enter into the gleaming contemporary kitchen/diner, fitted with all of the necessary amenities required to rustle up a romantic meal for two, serving at the intimate dining table to indulge in your culinary delights as you plan your fun-filled holiday itinerary.

Settle in for the evening with a seat in the snug sitting room to enjoy a movie marathon, enveloped in the warmth from the electric log burner in the cooler evenings, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, head out to the private patio to soak in the fresh sea breeze as you toast a glass of fizz to a wonderful holiday.

When sleep calls, prepare for bed with a rejuvenating soak amongst the bubbles in the bathroom, before retiring to the delightful double bedroom, beautifully-appointed with a neutral colour scheme, offering a tranquil setting to rest your eyes ahead of a new day.

Pack up your beach going essentials and take the short stroll to Bexhill Beach, where you can indulge in an invigorating dip in the waters of the English Channel, or if you'd prefer to stay on land, enjoy a leisurely walk along the magnificent promenade that lines the seafront, stopping for a portion of fish and chips in true seaside tradition.

Tour the world-renowned contemporary art exhibitions on display at De La Warr Pavilion, set in an iconic modernist building overlooking the coast, or discover the fascinating history of the town at Bexhill Museum.

History buffs will be delighted with a visit to the nearby town of Hastings, home to the ruins of Hastings Castle, erected in 1066 under the orders of William the Conqueror, along with the nautical artifacts preserved from ships that sank in the English Channel on display at the Shipwreck Museum.

Venture further afield to the popular seaside resort of Eastbourne, otherwise known as the UK's sunniest place, where you'll find an exciting selection of shops and eateries to suit all tastes, along with a number of attractions worth visiting, including Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, The Royal Eastbourne Golf Club, and the Victorian Pier, where you can test your luck on the penny slots or indulge in a spot of afternoon tea with a remarkable view across the stunning coastline.

Treat your loved one to an unforgettable retreat to the seaside with a stay at Lower Deck.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
