This is a lovely cottage with terrific views. If you don't mind being away from the city centre it is the ideal spot.There is a small village within walking distance and a ferry service to the heart of Wellington that only takes around 20 minutes. Very comfortable bedding ,shower is over the bath . Relaxation plus. Would highly recommend

Management response:

I'm so glad you enjoyed the views from the cottage!

Entering the front garden, which looks to the stunning water views, led us inside to an immaculate decor totally suited to a cottage by the sea. Fresh flowers, a small Christmas cake and Christmas tree, pantry cupboard with various goodies and supplies of items, which made moving in so convenient, all lived up to the five star standard.

About the neighborhood
Eastbourne is a lovely location just a stone's throw from Wellington. Where else in the world can you have such great access to the outdoors whilst being so close to a capital city? Enjoy the many walks in the hills, cycling around the Pencarrow Coast to the lighthouse or hang out in one of the local cafes. There is something for everyone. As the cottage is located right on the beach-front you can just sit and watch the world go by.
