Spacious 2 Bed Flat With Huge Lounge
About Martyn Kemp
I moved to Hastings in 2005 when I bought the tackle shop below the flat. Previous to this I was a scientist with many years experience in the fine chemical industry and biomedical research.
Martyn Kemp purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Martyn Kemp chose Hastings
The flat became available in late 2013 and was a natural fit being very handily located and ideally spacious for holiday letting. After extensive redecoration it is now a very comfortable holiday base.
What makes this Apartment unique
The very large lounge with its big windows give a real feel of space and light. Very easy access to all the bars and restaurants of the lively Old Town.

We both enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, spacious apartment.
There was nice little touches, such as milk, bread, fruit and beverages left for us.
There was only the two of us in this five bedroom apartment, but we struggled with flushing the toilet, as the water pressure was low.
Although we did not need to use the washing machine or dishwasher, I did not see any instruction manuals.
These are only small niggles.
As it is based in the old town and very convenient for the beach and other attractions. We would certainly stay again.
Amazing location; huge apartment with plenty of space for an active 18 month old! Martyn was friendly and conveniently located in shop underneath if needed. Having the bread/milk was a lovely touch and welcomed after a long journey! Would recommend and hope to stay again!
We all had a lovely stay. Was very spacious.
The overall experience was a pleasant one for all of us. Was a little cold in the double bedroom as the window is broken open at the hinge side and the hot water tap for running a bath was very slow but on the whole it was a great weekend. Clean and tidy and it was nice to have all tea stuff with bread and butter too on arrival. We will probably be coming back again in the future.
Great enjoyable stay in Hastings.
Great comfortable flat, enjoyable stay. Good location near the beach and cafes and wine bars, in the old town, historic part of Hastings. It's a great flat with everything you can think of provided. It's only up 2 flights of stairs overtop of the fishing tackle shop. Really big spacious lounge and kitchen and 2 large bedrooms and a shower room and seperate toilet. The flat has storage heaters but if you are a bit chilly there is a fan heater in the cupboard. Martyn provided bread, milk, butter, tea, coffee, sugar and fruit. Along with towels, tea towels, toilet rolls, even children's games. They was also general interest leaflets and bus time tables provided. The bus stop is just across the road to get into town, and there is a convenience store across the road, for milk, bread sugar etc. I would definitely recommend it. I would definitely stay there again.
Martyn was super helpful. Flat was huge. Location was perfect.
Didn't realise how spacious this was going to be, it was wonderful. Every little detail, games to play, ironing board and iron, hoover, lots of towels, everything you could want if you forgot something.
Had a lovely welcome pack of fruit, bread, milk, t-bags, coffee etc. which was alovely touch after a long journey, to sit down with a cuppa!
Can't fault Martyn and his friendliness or the location. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you Martyn.
Spacious and excellent location
Great sized flat, very close to sea front and everything Hastings has to offer. Can recommend for young children too, plenty of space to play and things to do near by.
The modern apartment is in the heart of the Old Town in Hastings and ideally situated for the beach (400m) and the many surrounding attractions. The very lively Old Town is full of character and old buildings (the neighbouring house is the Old Courthouse and is the oldest in Hastings dating from the 15th century) with many quirky shops and antique shops in the little lanes. The TV series Foyle's War was filmed all round the Old Town. There are many very good restaurants and pubs along with the finest fish and chips in the country. Regular big events are the Old Town Carnival Week at the beginning of August, May bank holiday Jack in the Green festival, Motor bike rally (May bank holiday - which attracted an estimated 100,000 people in 2014!). Beach bonfire (October). Pirates day (20 July 2014) - Hastings is the current world record holder for most people dressed as pirates (over 14000!). Hastings is also one of the sunniest towns in the country with our close neighbour Eastbourne the sunniest.
The fishing harbour has the largest beach launched fleet in the country with many fresh fish outlets and the unique iconic Hastings Net Huts. The Sea life Centre, Fisherman's museum, Lifeboat Station and New Jerwood art gallery are all within 500m. If you want to go fishing the tackle shop is below!
Further afield Battle is just 10 miles away, visit the Abbey and 1066 battlefield. Eastbourne is about 20 miles west and Tunbridge Well and the Kent Weald is about 30miles north. Dover is an hours drive away if you fancy a day trip to France.
