Places to holiday in Hastings, East Sussex

Visitors can walk through history or simply stroll along cliff top heights, exploring charming areas of ancient woodlands and unique animal and plant life in Hastings Country Park. Pelham Beach is an equally relaxing atmosphere, especially for families with the beaches efforts to maintain children’s safety. Other less traditional beachside locations include an area which allows visitors to watch as fisherman do daily work on the shore, getting ready to leave a community known as having the largest active fleet of fishing boats in England. This is as much entertaining as it is educational.

An upcoming cultural scene has given this community many venues from which to choose including the Stables Theatre and Art Center, hosting musical and theatrical performances.

Various sizes and shapes and a lack of uniformity is seen amongst these tiny unique structures. Visitors seeking nothing more than a pint and the charming environment of a quiet local hangout can find several pubs along the seafront dating back to the early 1700’s.

The property was very clean and exceptionally well equipped. Although located within the grounds of the owner, it was positioned at a distance in such a way to be sufficiently isolated. The owner Phil and his wife provided a warm welcome and were always willing to help should the need arise without being obtrusive. The Sawyers P.H. nearby provided a warm welcome in which to enjoy a pint and also tasty meals at the bar or restaurant attached.

Property is a very restful spacious place, immaculately cleaned, well maintained and fitted with all the amenities you could want. The Pirates Lookout offered fantastic sea and cliff views. Very secure fenced in property which we really appreciated with our young dog. Would recommend to all, to be honest we didn't want to come home!
