Places to holiday in Hastings, East Sussex

Traversing into East Sussex enriches anyone who ventures to this community of ancient ruins amidst a thriving seaside community. Outdoor activities give the opportunity to take a walk on any section of the path between Hastings and Rye, to cycle, bird watch, or simply relax in one of Hastings' self catering cottages.

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. Electric Palace Cinema shows a variety of films in the heart of Old Town which is also the home of the Hasting Old Town Hall Museum which gives good background information on the community. A bit of the bizarre is found in the communities huts which had the original purpose of drying fishing nets. 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.

                                                              Very cute place built on three levels with little nooks and crannies. Unusual staircase through bathroom up to bedroom. Loved the quiet living room and retro feel of the kitchen with lots of tinned goodies and home made preserves. Would have appreciated a small milk in the fridge for tea but there are several shops a short stroll away. However, can't complain when a bottle of wine was left in the table! Wifi worked but intermittently and we had to reset each morning. Linda was helpful with details and allowed us a 2 day stay instead of 3 at a discount. Rather clumsy booking system process with unnecessary documentation compared to other holiday rental websites we use. But overall we loved the cottage itself and the location and will be back, thanks.

                                                              Great place for a group weekend away

                                                              Our group of 12 adults stayed at Lane House for the weekend as our friend was getting married nearby. It turned out to be the perfect place for us all, everyone was so impressed! The house was clean, well presented and had everything you could need - well-stocked kitchen, lots of games, and spacious areas to chill out. The bedrooms were all huge and with comfortable beds (including the twins - it's also pretty clear in the Bramley & Teal description that one of the twin rooms doubles up as the gym but it was still very roomy and this really wasn't an issue for us). We ate at both the Two Sawyers (a few mins walk away) and the Royal Oak (10mins walk) and both were very friendly with great food, and the sausages at the butchers down the road were excellent. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side to enjoy the decking area and garden but this looked like it would be great on a sunny day and the surrounding countryside is stunning. Paul was also very easy to deal with and everything was exactly as he said it would be - would highly recommend staying here.

                                                              A delightful seafront property in St. Leonard's; restored and modernised.

                                                              Basement is a self-contained section complete with kitchen, lounge, bedroom and 'wet room' with shower and heated floor. Very well-equipped and up-to-date. Very comfortable for older citizens who are not so fond of stairs - this part of the property can be let separately to couples. TV and DVD player with 2 small sofas and separate front door. Between the basement and ground floor is a separate cloakroom with toilet and a door to an enclosed courtyard with barbecue and outdoor furniture. The ground floor comprises a through kitchen/dining room with a sofa - superbly equipped with ample facilities for a full houseful of guests (8 people). There is a very impressive electric hob on a glass-sided island. A welcome pack of bread, eggs, butter and chocolate digestives plus a bottle of champagne and 1.5 liters of orange juice and 4 pints milk also provided and much appreciated - tea and coffee of good quality also provided (with sugar). The first floor is a spectacular lounge with 2 large sofas and a large-screen TV and computer games, plus table football and a good library of books for adults and children. A large illuminated anchor was an impressive addition. There are 2 sets of french doors to a large balcony. The second floor has 2 large double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate bath and shower facilities. Very well equipped and comfortable. The top floor has a large double bedroom and a bijou toilet and washbasin, with a glass door to the roof balcony. This property was the best-equipped and most comfortable one we have ever encountered. Much appreciated as the weather was cold (although it didn't rain!). Good restaurants and cafés in the local area. Although expensive, it is good value for money. A Good weekend had by all the family
