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!

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.

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.

    We had a lovely peaceful stay for a week in January 2019. Great spot for exploring. The flat was very comfortable warm and cosy.

    The flat is in a wonderful position and beautiful views but you cannot park anywhere near, but we were aware of that. We had various issues as stated below when we first arrived, the owners were very nice and did eradicate them when they arose. The key lock wouldnt work correctly and I had to balance on the doorstop to open it, on opening the door the place smelt of drains, the bin in the kitchen wouldnt close, the television is worked from a joint remote and so is fiddly, the wardrobe in the bedroom had a broken door and the side light had to be turned off by the plug which was under the bed. The management company could do with cleaning the property better as it had a dirty toaster, cups, a muddle of coffee, teas, sugar and six month out of date biscuits. The mirror in the front room had a thick layer of dust. The kitchen is well equipped and has a good functioning cooker, dishwasher and a fridge. It had a wonderful shower, was very peaceful and I am sure the owners will have sorted the problems out for the next renters. You do have to remove your own rubbish and the stairs are immediately in front of the front door and are steep, a stairgate would be necessary for the top of the stairs if you have young children. We certainly left the flat in a better state than we found it and we had previously stayed in a house in Chichester that had parking, was double the size, a large fully functioning kitchen and was the same price so we were measuring the flat to the our previous holiday rent. We would not return but do believe it would be suitable for a quick weekend stay and hopefully you would not have had the issues we had.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments; they are useful for us to improve the experience for future guests. We are glad that you appreciated the location and views from Seagull’s Nest. The issues you raised with us were remedied immediately during your stay. Having kept in contact with you, throughout, we thought everything was fine. We believe it was the driving rain that washed grit into the key lock barrel as you opened it, and washed debris that covered the road drain outside, which was unfortunate for you. You can safely stand on the roadside, not the step to open the door. Most Old town properties do not have parking. Parking 5 minutes away from Seagull’s Nest is clearly explained prior to booking and arrival. We have new bins. A universal remote is preferable to having three; instructions are clearly explained in the guest folder. The mirror you mention is vintage and has a patina, not dust. For the consideration of our guests, we set out individual bowls of tea, coffee, sugar and milk in the fridge, on arrival they can unpack take refreshment whilst appreciating the view. Seagull’s Nest is a special place for 3 guests close to the beautiful heart of historic Hastings and all its surrounding area has to offer.

    The apartment was situated in a perfect location and the view was lovely. The apartment was perfectly adequate for 3 and was very clean with detailed information about the equipment. We would have liked a few more utensils in the kitchen but that is only a minor issue. The apartment was very comfortable and we looked forward to returning each evening. It was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area which has some amazing places to visit as well as being a very short walk to the beach.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments - they are welcome to help us improve the experience for future guests. We try to have everything in the kitchen that would be expected. Sometimes things get broken and we are not always informed. Having spoken to you in person, we now understand your comments and can confirm there are six different sized saucepans, a frying pan, a griddle pan and a pancake pan.

    the whole process could be summed up by saying it was one stress after another, from getting the number for the key entry box - which cost us £100.00 'deposit' that I've not seen again, to the smell of the place starting with the cheap air freshener in the hall which greeted us, which morphed to an over riding smell of mould - curtsy of the huge amount black mould visible in the bathroom skylight, and on to being expected to remove all our own rubbish and strip the beds - not my idea of a paid for holiday!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments, these things had not been brought to our attention before. The skylights are freshly cleaned inside and out. Sorry you feel this way. It was a genuine mistake that your deposit was late being returned. Deposits are taken to help people take a little bit more care, they are returned a couple of days after a guest leaves. It’s quite normal practice to strip beds and remove the rubbish - our management company service all of the properties they look after like this.

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

    Response from:

    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
