About The Studio

The Studio is a fantastic seaside property that is perfect for families and friends. Pevensey Bay Beach is less than a minute's stroll from the front door and guests can also walk to friendly local pubs like the traditional Castle Inn. There is space for up to seven people to sleep in four bedrooms and with its private garden and indoor/outdoor living, The Studio is an exceptional stylish place to stay in every season.

Pevensey Bay is a peaceful shingle beach on the East Sussex Coast. William the Conqueror landed here in 1066 before he moved a mile inland and set up camp on what became the site of Pevensey Castle, using it as a base to plan and execute his victory over King Harold and change the face of Britain forever. This area is sometimes known as "1066 Country", and you can't miss the many references to the famous battle. Where Pevensey Castle is a picturesque (and possibly haunted!) ruin, nearby Herstmonceux Castle is a magnificent display of power and wealth with 550 acres of gorgeous Elizabethan gardens.

Two miles west of The Studio, Sovereign Harbour has the status of the biggest composite harbour in northern Europe, with numerous shops, cafes, restaurants and a cinema. It is possible to arrange a boat trip of the harbour and coastline or to charter a boat for some ocean diving. Walk or cycle along the coast to Eastbourne, parade along the promenade and stop to listen to live music at the seaside resort's famous bandstand. Brighton's many and varied distractions are less than an hour's drive away while the Pevensey Levels nature reserve and South Downs National Park are both incredible places to discover. Alternatively, take a day out to one of the nearby towns and villages and find a new favourite country pub, boutique or view.

Whether you are stretched out on the beach in the summer sunshine or walking along the blustery shore in winter, The Studio provides everything guests could need to relax in comfort and enjoy their self-catering holiday in East Sussex.

Location (East Sussex)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Studio offers a high standard of accommodation over two levels, with a contemporary style that puts guests' comfort at the forefront. The house was formerly the studio of the pre-Raphaelite artist, Valentine Cameron Prinsep, who was a contemporary of Rosetti.


  • You will feel welcome as soon as you set foot in the spacious hallway which has a handy church pew where you can sit and divest yourself of coats and boots. There is ample storage so you can immediately kick your shoes off and relax.
  • Light dominates in the fantastic open-plan living area, where the owners have cleverly divided the space into separate areas, so guests have the choice of socialising or doing their own thing.
  • Settle back and watch the Smart TV (one of three televisions in the house that have access to Netflix) or listen to music on the Sonos sound system. Glass doors open onto a private enclosed patio and allow a cooling summer breeze to flow through the house, while a wood-burning stove keeps the room warm and cosy in winter.
  • Bosch appliances, including a dishwasher and an induction hob, feature in the kitchen. The owners provide a welcome selection of pods to use with the coffee machine so you can sit at the breakfast bar and watch the news on television while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee.
  • Conveniently, a second dishwasher and fridge/freezer are tucked out of sight in the adjacent utility room.
  • A stylish glass dining table provides a nice place to sit and catch up on the days adventures. Leather sofas and a baby grand piano make this an elegant space to relax and entertain.
  • One of the two downstairs bedrooms is a lovely double room with proper storage, a Smart TV and glass doors that open into the garden. It has an ensuite with a shower over a bath, WC and handbasin.
  • A zip and link bed can be made up as a twin or super-king (please advise at the point of booking) in the second bedroom, which also has a tall wardrobe for storage.
  • The family shower room has a shower large enough for two, WC and handbasin.


  • Stairs lead from the sitting room to a mezzanine study which is ideal for working or catching a peaceful half-hour to read.
  • The master suite is the ultimate in luxury with not only a very comfortable double bed but also a double-end bath in which to soak, a television and an ensuite with a walk-in shower, heated towel rail, WC and handbasin.
  • Children will love the fourth bedroom which whilst very small, has a standard size single bed, as well as a bedside table and mirrored wardrobes.

Outside: The Studio has a sheltered patio with garden furniture and a chiminea as well as a larger garden area with an Easy grass lawn, pond, table and chairs. There is parking for several cars on the driveway which is protected by an electric gate. The cottage has an EV charging point.

Additional Information: All utilities, including heating and super-fast WiFi, are included, along with sheets and towels (please bring your own beach towels). A travel cot and highchair are available on request. Short breaks are possible depending on availability. Smoking and pets are not permitted.
