Holiday Cottages East Sussex
East Sussex is surely one of the most varied destinations in England, offering everything from the vibrancy of Brighton to the historic battle sites and castles of Hastings and Lewes, the tranquillity of the South Downs countryside and the stunning coastal beauty of the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs.
Whether you want to enjoy regal splendour, historical intrigue, rural serenity or cutting edge night-life, holiday cottages in East Sussex can provide the perfect holiday in one of England’s most beautiful areas.
It is the breathtaking coastline which has traditionally drawn people from inland Britain to holiday or live in the fresh air of East Sussex and Seven Sisters Country Park is one of the most stunning examples. Part of the South Downs National Park, Seven Sisters is made up of miles of picture-perfect chalk cliffs, open countryside and a rambling river valley, making it a popular haunt for walkers, cyclists, nature-spotters and water sports enthusiasts. Marked trails help walkers and cyclists of all abilities, ages and fitness levels enjoy the natural beauty and spectacular views out to sea or across the rolling downs.
Views of the famous, white Seven Sisters cliffs themselves are a must for many tourists and prove to be a major draw for many of the best holiday cottages in East Sussex.
The sea itself provides a veritable playground for visitors, whether you want a peaceful pebble beach such as Cuckmere Haven to relax in the ocean air, a buzzing seaside resort like Eastbourne, the fossil-hunting haven of the rocky Fairlight Cove, watersports galore at Winchelsea or East Sussex’s only sand dunes at Camber Sands, the distinctive beaches of East Sussex offer something to suit all tastes and all styles of holiday.
Buzzing Brighton has long been a popular holiday escape for fashionable Londoners and now attracts visitors from all over keen to sample its colourful night-life, cafe culture, exciting food and drink scene and unique regency architecture. It offers the perfect combination of traditional seaside life and exciting water sports with chic shopping and an endless bounty of arts and culture to explore.
Established as the UK’s unofficial gay and lesbian capital, its annual Pride festival is one of the most spectacular in the country, while the free-thinking and bohemian atmosphere has added a distinctive character to the whole city. It is a welcoming destination for families too and those looking to relax without sampling the vibrant night-life. The famous Brighton Pier is teeming with activities for all the family, while the Sea Life centre offers a chance to explore the magic of the sea whatever the weather. Brighton’s iconic Royal Pavillion, the former residence of George IV is also a marvel for visitors of all ages.
Of course, East Sussex has so much more to discover beyond Brighton or its beaches, with stately homes, stunning countryside and quaint market towns all waiting to be explored. Choose from our selection of holiday cottages in East Sussex and start planning your own adventure today.
