Situated in the heart of a picturesque town, this holiday apartment commands sea views and an excellent sandy beach.

Wonderful sea views

Boasting wonderful sea views and ideal 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 the doorstep. Several guests look for how and where this iconic TV series was produced, with several other places in and around Hastings also featured in the show. Situated in the heart of the picturesque Old Town, Seagull’s Nest has sea views from every window and is within easy walking distance of the beach. Visit Smuggler’s Adventure, Underwater World, Hastings Castle, the Blue Reef Aquarium, Shipwreck Centre and Fisherman’s Museum at Rock-a-Nore, or the prestigious Jerwood Gallery which is located just minutes away. To the east is the majestic cliff coastline and views across the English Channel - the East Hill Country Park is a 5 minute walk away, with 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. Fairlight Glen is a 2½ mile walk, each way along the clifftops, the coastal path then continues to Rye. 1066 Country is a holidaymakers delight with so much to see, do and discover. Visit Battle, Rye, Brighton, Lewes, Bexhill, Pevensey and Eastbourne, or take the train to London. Plenty of English Heritage and National Trust properties within driving distance - Bodiam Castle, Scotney Castle, and Batemans - Rudyard Kipling’s house. Alternatively, try 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, 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. Perfectly placed in the middle of the popular Old Town area, but also set in a quiet street, Seagull’s Nest gives you the best of both worlds! Interesting shops and even a small independent cinema, 150 yards away. So much to see and do! Many cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs in adjoining streets 100 yards away.

All on first floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 single. Shower room with toilet.

Electric central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freesat TV. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Fridge/freezer. Dishwasher. On road parking 500 yards (uphill). No smoking.

    A clean comfortable cottage well equipped to suit most needs. Lovely sea views and a view of Hastings East Hill. Located in the nicer Old Town area, it is a short walk to the High St. The only issue here is parking, but you can park for free further up the hill from the cottage, and walk back (5 mins) or as I found, you can park at “Rock-a-Nore Road” (behind the fishing museum), for 24 hours at a cost of £3.20, and walk to the cottage again 5 mins. Would defiantly visit again, and happily recommend it as a place to stay.

    The location and sea views from the apartment are excellent. No immediate parking available, but there are several areas and car parks within easy walking distance. The main bedroom would benefit from a wardrobe with more storage, bedside cabinets with a drawer rather than the current ones, and a slightly larger bed (had not been dusted behind the bedside cabinets). The smaller bedroom had excellent storage. The kitchen was quite well equipped, the use of a dishwasher was great. Appeared to only be a bottom shelf in the fridge, and the freezer compartment at the top was too iced up to use. We found the missing shelf stored on the floor to the side of the fridge, but had not been cleaned. The bathroom was very clean, the water hot, and the shower was very good. All bed linen and towels were good quality and clean. The record player in the lounge was a nice addition. Plenty of leaflets on the local area in the drawers, also books and dvd's. Comfortable sofa and plenty of cushions. I am sure it would appeal to more people if WiFi were to be installed, although you have access to wifi in many of the pubs and restaurants in the main town. The streets and houses immediately nearby are the prettiest in the area, and down towards the beach where the fishing museums are on Rock A Nore Road, are delightful. An enjoyable stay in Hastings that we hope to repeat in the near future.

    Great location but the flat needs a deep clean and some money spent on it overall.
