  • "A lovely spacious flat, very comfortable with all you need for a great week."

    Owners were very welcoming and nice treats awaited us including chocolates, cake and milk etc so we could have a nice cup of tea on arrival. Very close to beach, shops and buses, we enjoyed some lovely walks and only used the car once. Would certainly use again if holidaying in the same area.

  • "We were shown around when we arrived by Barry and Adele who were very welcoming."

    It was pouring with rain, and we arrived early, so they very kindly let us leave our luggage at the property while they continued to make it ready for us and we went for a coffee. We were pleasantly surprised with how spacious, clean and comfortable the apartment was. We were given chocolates, cake, flowers and lots of treats on our arrival which was a lovely thought and makes all the difference. Only one small thing, and that was more of a joke between us than a complaint, and that is that all the wall mirrors were set to high for me at 5'3". A lovely base for exploring Eastbourne and the surrounding area. We arrived by train so we used the buses which were very reliable and regular to get us out and about, and about 5-10mins walk depending on which bus stop to use. Lots of good places to eat within walking distance. We have already recommended it to our friends and family and will definitely be staying again in the future. A note: just to make you aware, there are a lot of steps up to the front door and more up to the top where the apartment is, in all I think we counted 49.

  • "Very spacious flat, comfortable and very clean."

    Central situation, very close to the art gallery. Usually possible to get a parking space close to the house, occasionally we had to park down the road or round the corner. Owners were very helpful in moving luggage as it's up 2 flights of stairs, and also helpful with an additional parking permit when our relatives visited. Only downside I think is that there isn't anywhere to sit outside in nice weather

  • "A roomy and well-equipped top-floor apartment, full of light and air."

    It's close to the centre of Eastbourne, plus the seafront and the Towner art gallery, yet still blissfully quiet. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The whole place was spotlessly clean and fresh. In fact, it's one of the best holiday apartments we have ever stayed in.

  • "Excellent accommodation, spacious, comfortable and well equipped."

    Accommodation is on the 2nd floor, but stairs are wide and well lit. All one needed and more is provided, including 3 TVs and 2 sets of door keys. Friendly and helpful hosts with carrot cake, milk, chocolates and flowers and much more provided. Located centrally for town, beach and theatres. Parking via daily permits which were efficiently provided for us. Difficult to find any faults or extra needs, other than perhaps some brighter lights in the lounge for reading, We've already booked for 2024.

  • "The apartment is very luxurious and a lovely place to spend a week’s holiday."

    We received a warm welcome and we’re helped with carrying out suitcases up the 2 flights of stairs. It was a nice touch to be provided with milk, cake and chocolates. Car parking was straight forward and the apartment was close to all the bus routes and the train station. I would recommend the walks to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. Would definitely spend another holiday here in the future

    We were made to feel very welcome on arrival, and lots of consumables were laid on (including carrot cake). The flat is clean, comfortable and spacious, with all mod-cons, and is situated in a lovely area in Eastbourne just a couple of blocks from the front. The locality ('Little Chelsea') is bustling with independent shops, cafes and restaurants, and is within short walking distance to theatres and art galleries. Parking was no issue during our stay - just remember to fill in and display the supplied permit for each day. Highly recommended.

The property

Set in the heart of the vibrant East Sussex town of Eastbourne, is this period-style apartment on the top (second) floor of the owners home, within a large, victorian building.

Boasting an elevated position and with views to the South Downs and Devonshire park, enjoy a quality break with your family and friends.

Climb two flights of stairs to your accommodation and unwind into the evening after a superb day out exploring the local area.

This holiday let offers a contemporary style throughout, yet embraces its period features subtly adding character to each room.

The kitchen is compact, yet well-equipped for the chef of the group to rustle up a meal for everyone, should you wish to spend the night in, although there are plenty of fine eateries to choose from within the town.

You can gather around the dining table in the spacious living room and enjoy the dual aspect drawing in lots of natural light.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of this elevated apartment and snuggle up on the sofas with a good book or watch TV.

You have two bedrooms in which to catch your rest, each one nicely presented, both with a TV and plenty of space to store your belongings and feel comfortable.

Lastly, the family bathroom provides you with a bath tub to soak away your troubles and a shower over to revive you in the morning.

Outside, you can leave the car behind, with the permit provided by the owners and stroll into the town to enjoy all it has to offer.

You can benefit long walks on the beach, a sea breeze on your face and even dip your toes if the weather is not quite ready for swimming.

The Victorian pier is brightly lit at night and offers a host of amusements, eateries and fun for all the family.

You can also pay a visit to the Towner Art Gallery, the historic Redoubt Fortress and the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway offering wildlife-rich lake area.

There is entertainment to suit all tastes, here at Saltwood in this beautiful region of England.

About the location


Seaford 9.5 miles; Battle 16.5 miles; Lewes 17 miles; Hastings 17.5 miles; Brighton 24 miles.

Eastbourne is the perfect location for a seaside holiday and has been since Queen Victoria was on the throne. With its mild climate and easy access from London, this lovely coastal town has increased its appeal throughout the centuries. With 5 miles of award-winning shingle beaches to stroll along, you can enjoy the sea air even if you aren't quite ready for a swim. Eastbourne's historic pier, built in around 1866, offers entertainment all day and well into the night with its amusement arcade, cafes, shops, and nightclub, and from here you can even take a speed boat ride around the bay. After a day of visiting the museums, art galleries or numerous antiques shops in the town, why not sit and watch the waves roll by as you enjoy afternoon tea in Victorian Tea Rooms on the pier? Golfers are spoilt for choice with four golf courses close by, and tennis is also a popular sporting choice with the AEGON International women’s and men’s tournaments taking place in June prior to Wimbledon. There is even an Eastbourne Extreme weekend, with demonstrations in mountain biking, skateboarding, sailing, windsurfing and many other sports, so if you are energetic and willing, get down there and join the fun! For those who prefer to be entertained, take your seats in one of the four major theatres that Eastbourne is home to, offering all types of entertainment from traditional seaside shows and musicals to classical ballets and opera. If you are lucky enough to be here in August, bring a picnic and be prepared for Airbourne, an international flying event which passes over the sea. If you fancy a day away from the beach, there are many other places to visit in Eastbourne, including Treasure Island for warm, sunny days or the Drusillas Park Zoo. So, if you are looking for a holiday spot with something for everyone, look no further than Eastbourne.
