Take a look at 5 of the very best holiday homes in our East Sussex collection. If these don’t meet your high expectations, then nothing will.
Buckets And Spades
Click to book Buckets And Spades now: from £120 per night A proper British summer holiday deserves a proper seaside cottage - and this white clapboard home is a quiet bolthole on one of the UK's favourite beaches, Camber Sands. A five-minute walk from the surf, the home has been inspired by the sea, from the blue and white furnishings to the cute anchor wall hangings. Evenings are spend cuddled up in front of the electric fire in the living-kitchen area, with the wine fridge a short stroll from the sofa. While it's not the biggest space, the numerous fish and chip shops on the doorstep will mean not much time is spent at the dining table anyway. Bedrooms are bright and cosy, with plush velvet headboards and white shutters to keep the sunlight out, perfect for getting a good night's sleep before another day exploring Camber Sands. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
1066 and All That
Click to book 1066 and All That now: from £225 per night On England’s beautiful south coast, this home resides in the heart of the old town of Hastings. The town has been a settlement for over 1200 years and gave its name to the battle that took place after William the Conqueror’s invasion of 1066. With so much history in the local area, it's fitting that your home feels like a nod to the past, too. With original features, such as the old fireplace and wooden floorboards, it's decorated like a bohemian artist’s den with unique oddities and idiosyncrasies in every room — though if you're not a fan of taxidermy, you might want to sit this one out. However, behind all of this eccentricity, you'll find a beautiful property full of comfortable stylish touches. Prepare a delicious meal in the rustic country kitchen before gathering around the dining table to eat, perhaps with the log-burner crackling in the background. Come evening, nothing will beat an indulgent soak in the freestanding clawfoot tub, while you also have your own private patio garden that's positively teeming with greenery. When you want to venture outside, the beautiful buildings of Hastings’ old town – including antique shops, pubs and seafood shops – are all around, and the sandy beach is just a short, eight-minute walk away, too. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
The Blue Beach Hut
Click to book The Blue Beach Hut now: from £300 per night Just a short stroll from East Sussex's only sand dune system and its most famous beach, Camber Sands, The Blue Beach Hut provides a homely base near the coast. Its traditional sky-blue cottage façade and white picket fence make a great first impression, while inside the home continues to impress with stylish nautical-inspired design and modern amenities. An ideal retreat for a family, including its furry members, the fenced garden is perfect for each to find their favourite spot to relax – have a quiet read on the hammock with a glass of bubbly, fire up the gas grill and dine together under the stars. While long days at the beach are non-negotiable, on cloudier days don't think twice and take the family to Rye – picturesque cobbled streets await, with traditional pubs and charming tea rooms around every corner. Sleeps up to 5 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Click to book Driftwood Cottage now: from £275 per night From this charming family home, it is only a short walk to the beautiful Camber Sands beach, where guests can spend endless days playing in the sand or swimming in the sea. Equipped with a wood-burning stove for cosy nights in and a lovely, fully enclosed garden, this home is ideal for a family hoping to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle. You're even welcome to bring your pets along for the trip because no family vacation is complete without your furry best friends. While you're here, be sure to visit the picturesque village of Rye, from great restaurants to antique stores, quaint tea rooms and traditional pubs, it has so much to offer. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
The Custom Of The Country
Click to book The Custom Of The Country now: from £968 per night While the grand spaces and classically decorated rooms of this historic estate in the rolling East Sussex landscape speak for themselves, we can come up with a few more reasons to choose to live your next country escape as the lord or lady of this manor. Expansive views of quintessential English meadows will greet you all year round, though in spring, a sea of bluebells in the surrounding woods makes it an even more attractive proposition. In summer, a heated pool and tennis court provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor enjoyment. An autumn escape in East Sussex is all about long country walks – admiring the changing colours of nature – followed by a visit to a centuries-old pub. A group planning a winter escape will find refuge in the manor's many cosy corners, and can look forward to evenings of chatter by open fires and a lavish meals in the elegant wood-panelled dining room. Just make sure to nominate the group's chef and grand piano player in advance. Sleeps up to 14 | 8 Bedrooms | 7 Bathrooms
