We were treated to a very special night away at the Walnut Tree B&B in Eastbourne. This B&B is in the quiet seaside village of Eastbourne. It is a beautiful old house under the shade of a large Walnut tree. Even the entrance way with its old walnut door under a curved creeper lined doorway was quite entrancing. The whole... More

Glad you liked the bacon & egg baskets - they are family favourites here too! More importantly we are so pleased that you felt treated and relaxed during your special break away. Thank you so much for your kind comments we do appreciate it. More

The guest area in the Walnut Tree comprises the full top floor of the house. In addition to the large main bedroom there is an enormous lounge with beautiful panoramic views over the bay towards Wellington. Additionally there are two other bedrooms, but the whole floor is only let out to one guest group. A full cooked breakfast provided a... More

I had my hen's weekend here. We were 5 mature women who wanted luxury accommodation with fine decor, luxurious beds, copious towels, big bath room, spa pool, garden balcony with calming water feature, gorgeous sea views from the bedroom and large, comfy lounge. We had our own utility area with fridge and crockery- great for our happy hour. It was... More

It's not hard to recommend this B&B. It's so close to the city yet feels a million miles away! We stayed for one night as a little escape from the day to day of Wellington and found the hosts to be very welcoming. Hospitable doesn't quite cover it, we were generously offered a collection from the ferry, and a subsequent... More

We have just enjoyed a gorgeous weekend at the wonderful Walnut Tree in Eastbourne. The hosts are very generous, kind and thoughtful; the rooms well appointed and breakfasts superb! I fully recommend as a wonderful place to base yourself in Eastbourne, or simply retreat from "real life" for a few days. Looking forward to going back again!

It was our first time at a B&b and we chose Walnut tree B&b as it was close to the wedding venue we were attending. And by the end of the first day I was saying "ok I'm heading home" as jasmine makes you feel at home from the minute you ring the bell till the minute she dropped us... More
