This charming and elegant Victorian house was built in 1892 and is situated in a quiet road only 40 metres from the beach. Entering the hallway you will step back in time.
It was in 1789 that Eastbourne entertained it's first visitors. George III sent the royal children to "Sea Houses" for their summer holidays. The idea that the air and sea water was "good for ones health" took hold and the yearly summer holiday idea began.
Eastbourne is an elegant resort at the foot of the South Downs in Sussex. Friendly hotels and exciting events make us one of the country's favourite holiday and conference destinations.
Beachy Head is the most famous part of the Eastbourne Downland. Beachy Head rises 162 metres (530 feet) above the sea below and is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain.
The main reason for Beachy Head's popularity is the wonderful panoramic view which can be seen from the cliff top. If you look east you see the beaches and town of Eastbourne, the Pier and the Harbour, and then on to Pevensey Bay and Hastings and, on an exceptionally clear day, Dungeness in Kent, nearly 40 miles away
Looking west, you can see even further, up to 70 miles, past Seaford Head to Newhaven and Brighton and then on to Selsey Bill near Chichester in West Sussex. On a very clear day the outline of the Isle of Wight can be seen.
Getting There - Beachy Head is easily reached by car. From Eastbourne take Duke's Drive from the seafront (be careful of the steeply winding road), Meads Road from Meads and East Dean Road from Old Town. From the west follow the signs on the A259. Parking is free in the lay-bys near Beachy Head and there is a large pay and display public car park. Please park in the Beachy Head Pub car park only if you intend to patronise the pub.
Eastbourne Buses run a service along the seafront from the Sovereign Centre to Beachy Head.
