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. Alternatively, try Battle Abbey, Camber Sands and Herstmonceux Castle. 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.
Seagulls nest belongs to an award winning architect, a designer and their young son. They fell in love with the cottage’s view of the sea, the sun coming around the east cliffs, the location on one of old towns most beautiful quiet streets, the dazzling natural light and sense of calmness. Hastings is becoming a haven for a new generation of artists and creatives with many beautiful independent shops and eateries.

    Brilliant location. Lovely apartment. Windows need major attention. Key for windows was broken and the frames are very worn.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments they are welcome for us to improve the experience for our guests. I am glad you liked seagulls nest. We have new window keys to replace those broken during your stay. I have been chasing quotes for the windows to be overhauled. A new builder is looking and quoting this Friday whilst we are there. Sadly a guest forced a sealed window causing more damage. This is a priority of ours and is in hand to remedy soon.

    We love this place will return again and again. It is quite basic and simple but you don’t need much more than that on holiday

    Quaint and lovely place to stay with a fabulous view. So close to the centre of Old Hastings, parking was further than I expected so not for the frail. Comfortable beds & well furnished. The vinyl collection a real bonus.

    Great location. Not so keen on the adornments in the apartment but that's just my taste. Aside from that it's a cosy place with stunning views.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback, it’s welcome to help us make improvements for the comfort of our guests. Glad to hear that you found the accommodation cosy, very well situated and with amazing views. Sorry to hear that some of the interior accessories were not to your liking, usually we receive good comments on this aspect, especially returning guests who notice changes. You didn’t make it clear for us to comment specifically, as you say everyone has different taste.

    Lovely location just off the main shops and food area. Local grocery store, plus main supermarkets are a short drive away. Only downside is cars are parked away from the property which is uphill from the property. Good for morning fresh air !! Property has wonderful views towards the Channel and Binoculars and Telescope are provided. We did a lot of National Trust places and good walks, enjoyed getting back to base and having a small stroll for food and pubs.

    Quirky little cottage in an ideal location with beautiful views! Pictures and description on cottage site don't do it justice. We loved every minute of our stay, just perfect x (no wifi is the only gripe)

    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.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments they are much appreciated as we are constantly trying to improve our guests experiences at Seagulls nest. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with the amazing views and beautiful Croft road setting and plan to return. We apologise that the fridge shelf was out, a guest had removed it and the changeover staff had not noticed this. They are now instructed to check this and that previous guests have not left the freezer door open, along with dusting behind the bedside tables more efficiently. We have added a small chest of drawers to the main bedroom and the small bedroom serves very well as a dressing room. Sadly, we can't fit a king-size bed in. Wi-Fi is coming. We hope to see you again soon.
