    “*Couple on a 1 week working break* This is a small 2 bed cottage in possibly the best location in Hastings close to both the seaside and the country park nature reserve high above town.”


    The cottage was in excellent condition and completely clean with all the mod cons I would expect in perfect running order and the kitchen well stocked with utensils. There are 2 caveats that I would point out: The double bed in the main bedroom is fairly small (UK standard, at most) and if you're used to sleeping on a larger eg king size bed at home you may struggle. This is compounded by the fact that the second smaller bedroom only has two single poor quality spring mattresses that did not offer good sleep at all. I'd suggest that the bedding in the second bedroom is improved. Second: Due to the hilliness of the neighborhood the downstairs receives poor daylight. If like us you plan to spend the daytime working on your laptop this proves problematic. We actually ended up working out of the bedrooms quite often as the natural light is much better upstairs. As others have pointed out, you will spend £9 a day parking your car at Bourne or Rock a nore car park as there is no parking space. There are several dodgy / rundown neighborhoods in Hastings along sea front etc but we were happy to find that this location was not one of them. The Crown pub is a 2 minute walk and is one of Hastings's best. George Street with its interesting shops and cafes is less than a ten minute walk. The Uber Eats selection for food delivery to the cottage worked well as well. Big up to Bar Moda's burgers - just brilliant.

About the location


Battle 6 miles; Rye 12 miles.

The large historic town of Hastings offers a great mix of interesting places to visit, and is comprised of three parts, joined by the promenade. On one side is the Old Town, with narrow streets or 'twittens', attractive houses, Shipwreck and Fisherman's museums, wonderful tall black net huts, a fresh fish market, seafood restaurants and cafés. In the middle there is a contemporary shopping centre and on the other side is St Leonards on Sea with its fashionable Norman Road with antique and vintage shops, art galleries, examples of Burton's architecture (of Kew Gardens and London Zoo fame), Marine Court Art Deco flats designed in the shape of the HMS Queen Mary, and the remains of the Amsterdam, which is visible at low tide at Bulverhythe. West Hill in Hastings is home to the Smugglers Adventure and Pelham Beach, and East Hill offers the Hastings Country Park, 660 acres of ancient woodlands, grasslands and heathlands crossing five miles over cliffs and rugged terrain, plus East Hill can also be reached by taking the 'lift', the steepest funicular railway in Britain. Whilst exploring Hastings, visit The Stade and watch fishermen land their catch, plus why not take a trip to Blue Reef Aquarium and the remains of Hastings Castle? Pevensey Castle, dating from the 4th century, and the first Norman Church are twelve miles away. Further afield enjoy the NT properties of Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst and Scotney Castle, the cinque port of Rye, the abbey at Battle or the beach and dunes at Camber Sands.
