Number 95 sleeps up to fourteen guests in eight bedrooms (or nineteen with the use of camp/sofabeds) and is exceptionally well located on Pevensey Road, just a five minute stroll from the town centre, seafront and pier of the popular seaside resort of Eastbourne in East Sussex. With a great selection of attractions and eating establishments just a short walk away - there is plenty to see and do without needing to get in the car!
Providing an ideal blend of urban excitement and coastal living, this spacious stylish Victorian holiday home is ideal for friends or family who want to holiday together or celebrate a special occasion. The accommodation is split over three floors with wonderful elegant period features mixed with contemporary style and modern convenience to provide a relaxing retreat with plenty of space for everyone.
Officially affording the most sunshine in the UK, there should be plenty of opportunity to enjoy Eastbourne's clean beaches, promenade and pier. This holiday friendly award-winning resort is within easy reach of Cosmopolitan Brighton (twenty five miles) and Hastings (Seventeen miles) and offers lots to entertain all ages. Why not take in a show at one of the theatres; give roller-skating on the promenade a go; browse the interesting boutiques; enjoy supper or lunch at one of the many restaurants or step back in time and enjoy a concert at the bandstand.
Sitting at the foot of the South Downs, the area provides superb opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts including cycling and walking, along with water based activities such as wind surfing and fishing or for those feeling brave, give paragliding a try! The night scene is also good in Eastbourne, catering for the younger generations with both language and university students helping to create a cosmopolitan feel in the many pubs, bars and clubs and if that is not enough, Brighton is easily accessible by train. The resort also has plenty to offer the little ones including the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, crazy gold, go-karting, Treasure Island and Fort Fun and of course the lovely clean beach and pier for traditional seaside fun.
Whether you are looking to explore the many attractions of East Sussex or simply want a relaxing holiday by the sea with everything on your doorstep, Number 95 is an ideal holiday retreat for large groups.
