For fans of Foyle’s War, the ITV World War ll detective drama series, Seagull’s Nest is ideally situated - right opposite Foyle’s house! Filming was done from our doorstep.

To the east is the majestic cliff coastline and views across the English Channel - the East Hill Country Park has miles of interesting, varied walks and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rare bird, plant and wildlife species can be found there as well as wonderful views, walks and places to explore. Situated near the beach and country park, and with good train connections to London. Visit Battle, Rye, Brighton, Lewes, Bexhill and Eastbourne. For the children, there is the funfair, amusements, crazy golf, Pirate Golf and a beach football pitch. Plenty of English Heritage and National Trust properties within driving distance - Bodiam Castle, Scotney Castle, and Batemans - Rudyard Kipling’s house. Plus Battle Abbey, Camber Sands and Herstmonceux Castle. The famous gardens at Great Dixter, and also those at Merriments and Pashley Manor are nearby, and not far from these there is Bodiam Boating Station and the steam railway next door. Pett Level and Winchelsea are within a few miles. Or just wander about Hastings’ fishing beach, with its colourful boats and traditional beach-launched fleet. Hastings Old Town and St Leonards down the road both have art galleries, pubs, restaurants and cafes, and quirky bric a brac and antique shops. There are many memorable events throughout the year, including Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras), Jack in the Green, Pirate Day, Old Town Week, Carnival Week, Seafood and Wine Festival, Coastal Currents Art Festival and the famous bonfire night in late October.

    This property is centrally located in the old part of Hastings. The property was comfortable, clean and ideally located to explore the local and wider area. The views across the roof tops towards the beach from the lounge were an added bonus as well as being close to the local shops, cafes and restaurants. This is an excellent property not only in quality but also to use as a base to visit the surrounding town.

    Seagull's nest is in a perfect position, right in the heart of Old Hastings. We loved the fact that it is opposite the house used by Christopher Foyle in the wartime series 'Foyle's War'. We loved the visits from the friendly fox as well. The apartment is very quirky and the selection of LPs for guests to play was fantastic. There are lovely views over the roof tops to the sea. Parking is a bit of a pain but there are spaces to be had further up the hill. There is a pull in to unload near the property. All in all, a lovely little bolt hole to put your feet up and enjoy the surrounding area. We would stay there again.
