Local Activities: There is a lot to see in Hastings to keep you busy for many days.
The most exciting thing in this area at the moment is the lovely new Hastings Pier. After the devastating fire in 2010, along with lottery funding and big fundraising across the local area, the refurbished pier re-opened to the public in 2016. It is a really special place to visit on a sunny day, to enjoy the view of the sea and the coastline and there are some special places to have a bite to eat there too: The Pavilion Restaurant and Bar, The Deck Roof Terrace Cafe, The Fish and Chip Bar, Billycan Coffee, Ralph and Poppy on the Pier serving amazing local chocolates and sweet treats.
Whether you wish to explore the many historic locations around this area in: Battle, Rye and Bexhill-on-sea, or prefer to enjoy the coastline and take some leisurely walks, you will be assured that you can do it all based in this wonderful location.
Hastings is one of Britain's oldest fishing ports. Fishing boats have worked from the beach in front of the old town for over a thousand years and are now a tourist attraction. The Fisherman’s Museum contains one of these fishing boats and the building was constructed around it.
Nearby Castles and Forts can be found at: Pevensey, Herstmonceux, Scotney, Bodiam and Camber. The Bodiam Castle in particular is a well preserved and beautiful castle with a moat in a lovely river location.
There are also many amazing festivals around this area throughout the year, which are well-worth attending, showing how vibrant this community can be.
Hastings enjoys loads of sun in the summer.
Seaside and Seafood Fare: Hastings is one of only a few of the old style fishing locations where you will see every day the fishing vessels hauled onto the beach after the early morning fish. As a result the Fish and Chips in any of the local sea front cafes/restaurants is about as fresh as it could be. Some sellers along the front sell cups of shelled prawns, clams, cockles and other types of seafood for you to enjoy. The fish shop nestled amongst the Fisherman’s Wharf (the old black timber constructions), is definitely worth a visit and is fun for children to see all the varieties available.
A favourite restaurant is Cosmo’s (Chinese/Asian) on the Sea-front. Enjoy an all you can eat buffet while a Teppanyaki chef cooks your choice of fresh food while you wait. Other Asian delights of Sushi and the usual Duck pancakes, tiger prawns etc are on offer and there is even chicken nuggets and chips for the less adventurous in your party. Definitely worth a visit after a day of working up an appetite at the seaside!

About Caroline Greengrow
I come from a back-ground in the hospitality industry having designed and refurbished luxury hotels around the world over now nearly 25 years in the business. I love my job in Interior Design - to me it is not a job but a pleasure. My ethos with my own property portfolio is to give my clients the same level of comfort and luxury enjoyed in the good hotels but in the more homely environment of a self-catering apartment. This apartment is stylish, clean and comfortable and I aim to provide everything you could possibly need. I want you to love the place, tell your friends and for them to tell their friends and spread the word. I hope that you will feel that we have pushed the margins to give you more than you expected and enjoy every minute of your holiday.
Caroline Greengrow purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Caroline Greengrow chose Hastings District
I bought this property back in 2006 when I fell in love with it because of the fantastic views of the sea from every window and being on the end of the terrace there are far-reaching views not just from one angle. When I decided to turn it into a holiday rental, I was determined it was going to be special as many holiday rentals can be sparse in furniture and comfort which is not something I personally enjoy when I am on holiday. I was determined this apartment would be anything but and from the many positive reviews on this and many other sites, everyone agrees! We have had over 150 groups of families and friends staying here now so the small number of reviews is only a tiny representation of our happy guests. I want you to feel that you will come and enjoy this property if you want a little bit more than a place to rest your head at night after a busy day out at the sea-side. We want you to be comfortable and feel well rested and looked after on your return home, feeling that all your needs were catered for and we thought of every detail.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Sea-view from all the windows is second to none! The beach and the sea is just across the road. If you want to hear the sound of the sea and the waves at night, open windows and fresh air will give you all you need. However for the benefit of those that like a quiet night when sleeping, new for 2015 we have now replaced all the windows and the double glazing makes all the rooms as quiet as you could ever wish for so we feel we can now offer both the sea and the waves or the sea and silence!

Great place to stay
Clean tidy great communication
Great to hear you had a lovely time, thank you for your custom! : )
Windy Hastings, lovely flat
The flat is very well maintained, spacious and well equipped. There was a storm outside and we stayed draft free inside. I would definitely book this flat again. Its right next to my favourite burger bar and cocktails so that was a real bonus
Amazing two weeks in Hastings
I and my family had a wonderful time in Hastings. Without doubts, a big part of our positive experience was Caroline´s stunning apartment, which is spacious, light, stylish, clean and cozy as well as perfectly equipped with all we needed for our stay. What´s more, its location is just perfect, within a walking distance to the interesting places, sights, not to forget the view of the sea which is really at hand. I can highly recommend staying here!
Great to hear you had a lovely time, thank you for your custom! Please come and stay again in 'Windy' Hastings anytime, perhaps you may see it sunny and storm-free next time! : )
Beautiful apartment in a great location.
Check in was smooth, we were met at the appointed time by friendly Vivienne. Apartment was clean and well furnished. We hadn't realised that although there are 3 'bathrooms', there is only only one WC. Not a major problem but something to be aware of.
Would stay again.
A great place to explore, right on the beach
Lovely flat, beautiful views! Lovely welcome pack and was very clean. Thank you for a lovely few days 😀
Thank you so much for your review. It was delightful to host you and please come back anytime. Kindest wishes
Very nice property, well appointed and presented
Overall, a very well presented and appointed property with pretty much everything you would need for a short stay.
Ideally located near the beach, with only a short walk to restaurants, shops etc.
The only slight downside is the parking situation, it is very difficult to get a space near the property, so when you have one, keep hold of it!
I am so sorry to hear you had a hard time parking over your stay.
This is very much dependent on the time of year as Peak Season and School holidays can sometimes be hard but Hastings does have a very plentiful supply of Car Parks so if parking for free outside on the road, there are many other options.
I am glad that overall you had a lovely stay and am pleased to learn it did not spoil you stay overall.
Hastings and the surrounding areas is a location rich in historical interests. Visit the site of the Battle of Hastings, Battle and many local castles (Hastings, Bodiam, Pevensey and many others) in pursuit of the history deeply embedded here. A slow amble along the beautiful streets of the old town and around the unusual old timber fishing huts at the far East end of the town, will fill your lungs with the smells of the sea. Enjoying a tub of fresh sea-food from a stall while you walk. Walkers and hikers love this area. East Cliff has some amazing ambles along coastal pathways as well as others inland. The gardens open to the public are really special in this area, as well historic Rye and Bexhill on Sea a short drive away. For families,the beach on a sunny day is always fun, with 'Pitch n Putt and go carts on the sea front & all the seaside amusements on tap. For golfers there are many courses nearby including Sedlescombe and the The Beauport Park 18 hole Championship Golf Course Other Activities: Historic Sites, Castles, Public Gardens, Walkers and Ramblers routes along the coast Golf: The Beauport Park 18 Hole Championship Golf course is a short drive from the centre of Hastings, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just outside the centre of Battle. There is also a 9 Hole pitch and Putt course here and there are other Golf Courses in Camber, Sedlescombe and Cooden Beach Golf Club (Bexhill) nearby. Novice golfers and youngsters may enjoy the Pitch and Putt on the sea-front at Hastings! Other Interests:- The Azur Restaurant (just across the road) at the Marina Pavilion is a great venue for Weddings, Parties, etc etc as well as a lovely seafront Restaurant, Cafe and Bar and is just a minutes walk away, so plan your next big event and stay at the Apartment! The Ghurkha Restaurant (5 minute walk along the seafront towards Hastings) if you like Indian Cuisine, is probably the best in Hastings and the staff are lovely too! Bexhill's De La Warr Pavilion with the ever changing art exhibitions is a 'must see' if you get the chance! Renovated in recent years it is a wonderful example of 1930's architecture and is great to see restored again after many years of neglect. Day trips to go and see the largest enclosed Marina (Sovereign Harbour) at Eastbourne and the lovely old town in Rye. Canterbury and Brighton are also lovely places to go with historic interest as well as enough to entertain all the family!
