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.

excellent location. we parked on seafront car park as no available on street space. the flat is an old building so expect quirky but the damp smell in the entrance is off putting and lingers to the upstairs living room. overall amenities okay, beds comfortable and clean. there was dust around the place which is off putting and the shower needs good clean around the door. the dirty windows don't put you off the great view of the sea. there is a lot of the owners personal belongings in places which is unexpected and not needed, you feel like you are staying in someone's personal space. I personally like empty cupboards and drawers when paying to stay somewhere, so you don't feel like you are invading privacy! overall reasonable place but not enough to stay again. very off putting that you are asked to strip your beds on leaving, never known this request before but we did as asked.

I fell in love with Seagulls Nest as soon as I switched on the lights to reveal it’s interior as it was dark when I arrived. Popped out for takeaway fish and chips and then sleep, glorious sleep after a long train journey. Awakening the following morning to the sound of the gulls, pulling up the window blinds to see wonderful views over the rooftops of The Old Town to the East Hill Funicular Railway Lift and the sea and sky was a delight and made my heart sing after all the months at home not daring to venture forth alone. All the objects, artworks and different pieces of furniture spoke of creative and artistic input. All the facilities I needed were within easy walking distances so my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. I have now made a two week booking in March 2022 to celebrate my upcoming seventieth birthday. What better place than this to do so??
