House in Eastbourne, Sussex, England - Quiet Harbour Location On Bus Route to Eastbourne, Close To Restaurants, Shops, Harbour and Beach
About Deborah McDonald
This pretty little house is in a quiet location yet is only minutes away from the boats, restaurants and bars at Sovereign Harbour and just down the road from the seafront. We live on the Isle of Wight and bought this property as a base on the mainland. We have spent a great deal of time over the years in the Eastbourne area and, being sailors ourselves, especially love the Sovereign Harbour development. This property suited our requirements. It has been furnished in a seaside style, which makes it light and cheerful, putting you in the mood for a lovely stay.
Deborah McDonald purchased this House in 2013
Why Deborah McDonald chose Eastbourne
We love this location as it is a stones throw away from boat-watching in the harbour with all its waterside restaurants and bars. It is also so handy for Eastbourne centre. Eastbourne can be a difficult place to park yet here we have a designated parking bay plus visitor's bays so a hassle free trip can be made to the town centre using the very regular bus or the fun Dotto train. We also love driving into the beautiful surrounding countryside to visit cultural or fun attractions nearby.

Quiet, peaceful and very relaxing.
We both really enjoyed our stay at this holiday property in Sovereign Harbour, access to the house on arrival was very simple. Once inside we found that everything had been provided for even a most welcoming bottle of bubbly had been provided by the owner. The house is ideally situated to visit Eastbourne/Beachy Head, Battle, Bexhill and Hastings and all the local amenities and restaurants are close by. We would love to visit again.
A week in the Sun, (almost)..
Very nice property, easy to find and very easy access to Eastbourne town centre. We had a lovely relaxing stay with almost unbroken sunshine. The weather forecast said rain and yes, we got a little bit of the wet stuff but not enough to dampen our fun. Airbourne was fabulous again and made a great end to a week of visiting relatives in the area.
Would we recommend this property? Absolutely...... Looking forward to going back again soon.
Recomendations: Pedros on Terminus Road for Fish & Chips and Pomedoros (Italian) on Cornfield Terrace as well as Airbourne Air Show each August...
PS: Thanks for the bubbly... :-) it made a lovely welcome after the journey down...
Thanks for the lovely review. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
PS we will be there ourselves shortly - we love it too!

It is only five minutes walk to the local beach. Eastbourne town beach with its lovely Victorian pier and beautiful gardens is about three miles to the west and Pevensey Bay is about two miles in the other direction by car or a short walk walk along the front. Pevensey Castle, which was a Roman Fort, is just beyond the beach. The Dotto train runs all summer until November along the sea front from the property to central Eastbourne with stops at Fort Fun and Treasure Island.
Use of car is not essential as regular trains run into Eastbourne from where a bus can be caught to the end of the road. This is a trip of only three miles. Taxis are also available. Once at the property all amenities are within walking distance (ten minutes walk to shops and restaurants along harbour side paths). A lovely holiday can be spent within Sovereign Harbour itself but Eastbourne central is an easy bus ride and the bus also takes you to Seaford and Bexhill.
If you wish to travel further afield Brighton is 24 miles away, Hastings is 17 miles and Seaford 12 miles. All these are characterful Edwardian/Victorian seaside resorts. Lewes is 20 miles away and Rodmell, the village where Virginia Woolf last lived is about 15 miles distant. Drusilla's zoo, Blackberry Farm, Treasure Island and Fort Fun for the children are all nearby. Herstmonceux Castle (11 miles away) and Michelham Priory (9 miles) are both great spots for a day out.
There is plenty to do for young and old in the Eastbourne area.
Don't forget Airbourne the famous International Eastbourne airshow which takes place each August and Eastbourne tennis prior to Wimbledon.
Asda has a cash machine and the local bars and restaurants take bank cards.
The Waterfront restaurants include: 'Ganges' (Indian), 'Pablo's' (Mediterranean), 'Simply Italian', 'Frankie and Benny's' (American grill), 'Thai Marina' a lovely Thai restaurant, 'The Chippy' (fish and chips to take away or go to Gringos, American Diner, The Harvester, a pub which caters for children but also has wonderful views over the harbour to satisfy parents, Seamoors Bar (lunchtime fish menu), Di Lieto's coffee lounge/ice cream parllour). Most of these have outside seating overlooking the marina. Upstairs is The Garden Bar (over 21s), 'Great Hairdressing', Inner Beauty. Over the road is a large medical centre. Pevensey Bay has the Castle Inn a traditional English pub with lovely bar food and Eastbourne centre has restaurants of all types.
The Harbour also offers boat trips which take passengers all around the development from the water for a very reasonable price. There are also fishing trips and longer journeys out to Sovereign Lighthouse.
