Staying at one of our Eastbourne cottages you will quickly discover that the resort is fast shedding its image as a haunt for pensioners and is now very much more of a family-orientated destination. Reputed to be the sunniest spot in the UK there are five miles of beaches and a palm-lined promenade. Here you can join in the popular pastime of roller blading along the esplanade. Eastbourne also has a thriving sailing and watersports scene with windsurfing and canoeing popular, or you can simply relax and take a pleasure boat trip along the coast.
Our featured properties include modern apartments in Sovereign Harbour, a popular marina to the east of Eastbourne. They are split between the North and South harbours, with the award-winning Waterfront - an impressive range of shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars lying between them. From here it is easy to wander along the promenade into Eastbourne.
Just a few miles to the west of Eastbourne is Beachy Head, with its impressive white cliffs and gently undulating downs. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and tranquillity which belies its proximity to the busy seaside resort. From the cliff top there are spectacular views of the famous red and white-striped lighthouse as well as stunning views over the English Channel.
Inland from Eastbourne there is some lovely countryside to explore. The South Downs include some of the most varied and quintessentially English landscapes in the country. From the open chalk grassland to ancient forests and lush river valleys, the South Downs now enjoy National Park status. In contrast The Weald - a rolling landscape situated between the chalk escarpments of the North and the South Downs - is characterised by a patchwork of small fields surrounded by hedges, patches of heathland, abundant woodlands, scattered farmsteads and sunken lanes. The dense forest which gave the Weald its name has largely vanished, but fine ancient broadleaved woodland is still abundant, particularly in the deep ravines which cut into the ridges. It is also home to the Ashdown Forest, the largest expanse of open land in south east England. Once a royal hunting ground, it is now one of the few remaining areas of lowland heath left in Europe and a great place for walking and enjoying spectacular views over the Sussex countryside.
