                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Lovely, stylish cottage with everything you could need and so convenient for all of the shops and restaurants in the old town. Hastings Old Town is crammed with amazing architecture and is oozing history which is almost tangible! The shops are fabulous and unique, with not a single chain store, which is so refreshing. The only negative about the cottage is that it can be noisy, especially as the bakery next door opens very early. This didn't bother us but may if you are a light sleeper! Would thoroughly recommend a visit to Hastings and Potting Cottage.
