Owner purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner chose Rottingdean
As soon as saw this house when it came onto the market I knew it would make a fantastic holiday home with its amazing views and location in the picturesque village of Rottingdean. The house has taken over 12 months to restore and is being offered for rent as a holiday let for the first time in 2014. I would be delighted to have you as our guests in what we hope will be a truly premier holiday cottage.
What makes this House unique
What made us have to buy the cottage was its stunning views, the house is undoubtedly in one of the best locations in Rottingdean. And Rottingdean itself is a beautiful seaside village, the village itself is in a conservation area and is a wonderful place to explore its interesting shops and its many tea rooms and great pubs and restaurants.

Very comfortable, lovely views
Needed accommodation for a family wedding in the area. The house was brilliant for the weekend when we were a party of 8, and then great for 2 of us for the rest of the week. Kitchen extremely well equipped. Great to find more than enough plates, glasses etc. Nicely furnished throughout and the views from the back are lovely from indoors as well as the deck. An easy stroll to the beach and a good variety of shops in the village.
Thank you so much for your kind review-yes we like to make the house a 'home from home' and keep it well equipped. And like you say the views are great and can be enjoyed without needing to step out of the house!!
Fabulous house for a family holiday
We booked this house as we were looking for somewhere not too far from home and suitable for the whole family and I have to say this was perfect! It was our 14 week old daughters first holiday and we went with our parents, my sister and my 95 year old Grandma and a dog! The house suited everyone and there was plenty of space, the fact that there were bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor with the living areas made it easy for my grandma who isn’t as mobile these days.
The house was very well equipped and comfortably furnished and in a great location less than ten minutes walking into Rottingdean centre and a gentle 45 minute walk along the seafront to Brighton.
The description on the website was correct and the house exceeded our expectations. We hope to return one day!
Thank you so much Erika for your lovely review and letting others know what an ideal house it is especially for families of mixed ages and highlighting its location as a definite plus point.
We all agreed that this house was in a brilliant location, very close to the lovely old centre of Rottingdean with its pub/restaurants & coffee shops. We had 3 generations staying from 91 years to 33years & it suited us all. 2 good sized bedrooms on the main floor & shower room which suited mother(91) very well as no stairs to climb & large master & good sized double upstairs with a bathroom. The fabulous view from the kitchen/ diner was great overlooking the sea & beyond to Brighton. Big positive was the balcony with table & chairs which had the same view. The house was clean & bright with contemporary furnishings, comfortable beds, good quality bed linen & powerful showers. All mod cons & very well equipped kitchen. The location was spot on with a very regular bus service into Brighton & bus stop 5 minutes walk from the house & the beach easily accessible at Rottingdean. The driveway can fit 3 cars, but one needs to be moved to let the others out. Not a problem for us, or you could park on the road as no restrictions.
Communication with the owner excellent. We recommend the house, the location & the whole area in general & would have no hesitation in returning
Thank you so much for your kind review which will be very useful for future guests.
I am so pleased you all enjoyed your week at our holiday home and it would be lovely to have you back someday!
Modern house in great location, superb views
We holidayed here for a week in July to attend a family wedding. The house is immaculate and on entering we did not expect the fantastic views of the ocean and the Rottingdean windmill. The house is in a great location, short walk into Rottindean centre and beach. We would definitely return.
A wonderful stay
We used 'Eclipse' to accommodate a group of professional singers performing locally; they all agreed it was the nicest place they'd ever stayed for work! Lovely views, great facilities and a homely environment.
Mike was a brilliant communicator - keeping us informed throughout the booking process. Would recommend to anyone.
