Make holiday rental accommodation or lettings in Eastbourne be your home away from home

Eastbourne lies on the East Sussex coast, near the famous cliffs of Beachy Head. Lettings in Eastbourne are popular for a great many reasons, not only the beautiful beach and wonderful access onto the South Downs but also the fantastic historical heritage, cultural attractions and children’s’ amusements that abound in the region.

Things to do in Eastbourne

Lettings on Eastbourne’s famous seafront are always hugely popular due to the clean seas, dramatic views of the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head, lifeguard monitored bathing, water sports centres, and of course, the famous painted beach huts. The beaches that surround any house to rent in Eastbourne are perfect for summer fun, offering safe bathing and ideal conditions for learning a great range of water sports from wind surfing to sea kayaking. There are also a great range of amusements along the seafront to keep the whole family happy from Eastbourne accommodation. The mini-golf courses, theme parks and Dotto Train are always popular, and for the adults, the attractions are even more varied.

Holiday lettings in Eastbourne are perfectly situated as a base for explorations of the South Downs. The South Downs are home to two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and can be explored from Eastbourne accommodation on foot, by bicycle or from the saddle via a maze of paths that weave throughout the whole of the region. There are also some fantastic opportunities to explore the region from a hot air balloon, play golf and even hang glide, should the mood take you.

Eastbourne holiday lets are a fantastic spot from which to enjoy a cultural or historical break too. The region is hugely important in the history of Great Britain, with vital sites in our history including those of the Norman Invasion of 1066 right up to the Second World War. The Napoleonic Redoubt Fortress and Military Museum, Alfriston Clergy House and the impressive Herstmonceux Castle are among the finest places to visit from any Eastbourne accommodation. There are also a number of events worth considering when thinking about renting Eastbourne holiday lets. The Eastbourne International Air show, Eastbourne Extreme Festival, Beer Festival and the annual food and drink festival, Eastbourne are all worth looking into, and throughout the summer, the bandstand plays host to a huge range of musical events.

Places to visit on holiday in Eastbourne

Holiday lets in Eastbourne are just 20 miles from the centre of Brighton, which makes an excellent day trip from Eastbourne accommodation. The fame of Brighton Beach is widespread, but from a holiday letting in Eastbourne, it is the attractions of the town itself, whether the Pier, clubs or shopping of Brighton, that attracts day trip visitors.

Travel to Eastbourne

Eastbourne is very easy to reach from anywhere in the UK. Having the use of a private hire car is advised when staying in Eastbourne accommodation, but is not essential. Gatwick Airport (LGW) is the best entry point to the UK from abroad if you are visiting holiday lettings in Eastbourne.

Everything clean and user friendly, all requirements catered for. We hadn't realised there were other cottages in the complex when we booked but it was nice to pass the time of day with them and share ideas of places to go etc.

The living room and kitchen have an amazing view of the beach and sea. Sitting on the sofa or out on the balcony looking out at the sea was a wonderfully relaxing way to spend some of the holiday. It also serves as a great base to explore attractions across the south coast. And if you don't want to go far, the nearby harbour is a 20 minute walk to 5 minute drive away and has a good number of restaurants, supermarket and cinema. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and had pretty much everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday. Only 4 stars out of 5 however, as the living room chairs could do with being slightly more comfortable for longer periods sitting.
