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.
