    This house has style. We loved the feel of the place and the house is spacious and well proportioned. We enjoyed the kitchen and dining facilities particularly. Its position close to the town centre and railway station, and to the South Downs Way nearby, suited us perfectly.

The property

A superb, detached Victorian villa located just a short walk from an abundance of restaurants and interesting shops close to the centre of Seaford, a popular Sussex coastal town.

This impressive Seaford cottage has been lovingly renovated and furnished to a high standard, cleverly combining original features with contemporary convenience.

The ground floor of this Seaford villa offers families and friends just the place to come together and enjoy fun and relaxation.

Why not sit and listen to your choice of music from the extensive selection of CDs on offer while lazing in front of the open fire in the sitting room?

Or if you are looking for somewhere more restful, then wander into the study and choose a book to read or write a postcard home.

The formal dining room is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion with an open fire that gives a warm glow to the room.

Just a step away and another world awaits; the well-equipped and stylish kitchen has everything that is required for modern day living and you can either sit at the breakfast bar or help prepare the meals at the centre island.

Outside this cottage in Sussex, it doesn't have to be a hot day to enjoy the terrace!

With a canopy over the alfresco dining area and lovely views over the rear garden, this is just the place to sit and relax while the others enjoy a game of table tennis or laze in the established garden.

There is plenty to do just a few minutes' walk from this Seaford holiday home; golfers have the choice of two excellent courses within walking distance, you can spend the day sea fishing or just have a paddle in the sea.

Whatever you do, the experiences will live long in the memory.

Seaford has plenty to offer visitors, from quaint tea rooms to a traditional pub lunch.

Take a walk up to Seaford Head which offers spectacular views over Seven Sisters with its white cliffs and rugged coastline, said to be one of the most photographed areas of Sussex.

The county town of Lewes and the country house of Glyndebourne, are also nearby and both are well worth a visit on your Sussex holiday.
