    Clean, airy and comfortable. Nice neighbours below. Working the key box code was a challenge because the keys would not stay in the box as we tried to close it. .

The property

Magpies is a ground-floor apartment located in 1066 country, in the centre of St Leonards-on-Sea, a busy town in East Sussex right by Hastings.

With high ceilings, multi-coloured original stained-glass windows, a bright and spacious living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, and a private terrace that looks out onto a beautiful garden, the apartment sleeps three and is ideal for a coastal getaway.

Plan things to do and places to visit during your stay over a coffee or a leisurely breakfast on the terrace - there are usually birds (especially magpies!) as well as squirrels in the trees to keep you company, and you might even spot the odd fox.

Head down towards the beach and seafront promenade to soak up some sun, or perhaps take a stroll along to Hastings Pier.

Winner of the pier of the year award in 2017, it plays host to all sorts of open-air events, and you’ll find an observatory platform as well as a range of stalls and restaurants.

A great place for watching the sun sink into the sea in the evening.

If you fancy a spot of shopping, nearby Norman Road has some interesting shops and a slightly Bohemian vibe, and right next door in London Road you’ll find a Co-op for your groceries, an artisan bakery and a place that sells organic fruit and veg.

The Old Town with its antique shops, Elizabethan houses and characteristic wooden fishing huts is worth checking out, or if you fancy some fresh air and exercise surrounded by lovely countryside and great views, you have Hastings Country Park.

Battle, where the Battle of Hastings actually took place, is just a short drive (or train journey) away.

Visit the battlefield itself and Battle Abbey to immerse yourself in local history, and the village has some traditional pubs that are a good choice if you fancy a drink or a meal.

Rye is another lovely little town just along the coast within easy reach by car or by train, and slightly further afield you have Sissinghurt Castle with its gorgeous gardens.

For children, you’ll find a small aquarium where they can get up close and personal with some of the inhabitants, and a visit to the Smugglers’ Adventure caves is always a hit with the smallest members of the family.

Choose Magpies as your base and enjoy all this and much more.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
