Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Close to the beach and a great base for exploring the area and its connections to the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066.

This well presented, detached family home, with exclusive use of a hot tub, is situated 3 miles from the beach, making it an excellent base for exploring 1066 country. The master bedroom has a small balcony from where you can rest and relax and enjoy far reaching views.
Hastings’ beach has smooth pebbles and sand at low tide, with lifeguard cover between May and September. Explore the timber framed buildings in the old town, art galleries including The Jerwood, tea rooms and vintage shops. Take the funicular railway to the West Hill and visit the remains of Hastings Castle, built by William, Duke of Normandy, after the 1066 Battle of Hastings. See the Blue Reef Aquarium, explore St Clements Caves located at Smugglers Adventure at West Hill, or watch the fishing boats land the day’s catch and purchase the fresh fish. Alternatively, take a stroll to the nearby Alexander Park with your fishing rod and catch your own supper! Walk along the pier, cycle along the promenade and enjoy the sea air.
Take a day trip to Battle Abbey and the famous Battlefield. Visit Rye, Bodiam Castle and many vineyards offering wine tasting, or a trip back in time on the Kent and East Sussex steam railway. Tunbridge Wells is also worth a visit where you can sample the Chalybeate spring water. There are good rail connections to London for further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 3 miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 600 yards.

    We had a lovely stay at The Boat House. We made great use of the hot tub & beautiful garden. The owner was very helpful & accomodating. The only downside is that the house is situated on a very busy main road. On the Friday evening, there were workmen digging up the road (with loud machinery) until 02.00 am! You could literally feel the house vibrating. It was impossible to sleep. I can only assume that this was due to emergency road repairs rather than a regular occurrence!

    Friendly welcome and lovely welcome basket with milk etc awaiting us... Lovely garden and house is spacious - it is well equipped. The only downside was the noise of the road at the busy times of day.

    Wow wow wow! What more can I say. We all love it and you went above and beyond for our stay from the welcome basket, fresh milk and eggs and short tour of what works what, where things are and very helpful in-depth booklets.on everything we could of asked and more. Very clean, very comfy beds and very happy children with a boat to play in, games room, hall cupboard full of games and the star which is the hot tub!! Hope to come back again one day and thank you for letting us stay in your amazing boat house.

    I booked this holiday for a romantic Birthday present for my fiancée . The Boat House far exceeded our expectations. We were over an hour late getting to the house to pick up our keys due to a fault on the train. The owner was very understanding and accommodating to us, still making sure she was there to greet us when we arrived. Upon our arrival we were instantly made to feel very welcome and we were blown away by how lovely the place was. Both my fiancée and I work very hard and the hot tub was super relaxing, just what we needed. Initially we were thinking about just doing this place as a one off experience but now we're thinking of coming back again in the summer after our wedding. Such a great experience, we can not recommend it enough!

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased to hear we met your expectations and more. It was lovely to welcome you both after your long journey, and I’m pleased you had a relaxing experience at The Boat House. We would be delighted to welcome you both again as Mr and Mrs very soon. Many Thanks.

    We spent a wonderful family Christmas at The Boathouse. There was plenty of room for us all: 4 adults, 2 children and 2 cocker spaniels. We appreciated the log fires and meals around the dining table. The kids were forever in the games room, it was a big hit. And the gowns enjoyed the Hot Tub. Thank you so much for letting us stay at the Boathouse, we had a fantastic time. We appreciated all the lovely touches, the Christmas decorations and the most amazing welcome basket - thank you so much.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review, we are thrilled that you had such a wonderful Christmas. It was lovely to welcome you and your family to The Boat House, and very much hope to welcome you all back again for another visit in the future.
