About The Spinney

The Spinney sleeps up to ten guests and is a charming holiday home nestling within an acre of well-maintained gardens which offer privacy and an outdoor heated swimming pool (open during summer months).

Sitting on the edge of East Dean, a pretty village just three miles from the seaside resort of Eastbourne, The Spinney provides a relaxing retreat at any time of the year. East Dean is known as the 'Gateway to The South Downs National Park' and provides a perfect holiday destination for walkers, cyclists and those who appreciate beautiful scenery and countryside. Perfectly positioned, the village sits adjacent to Beachy Head, the Seven Sisters and Birling Gap which is just a mile away where the nearest beach can be found.

Steeped in history, the flint church and cricket green are delightful focal points of the village which holds regular open-air markets. There is a great popular pub (The Tiger Inn) on the green which serves tasty food which can be enjoy overlooking the green on a sunny day. Or for something a little more exotic, visit the Thai restaurant on the green. The village also offers a small selection of shops for stocking up on provisions.

For a larger choice of shops and eating establishments, visit Eastbourne which is just a couple of miles drive. Officially affording the most sunshine in the UK, you should get plenty of opportunity to enjoy its clean beaches, promenade for roller skating or enjoy a stroll along the pier and afterwards, why not enjoy a show at the theatre or for the younge at heart, visit one of the clubs.

Whether you are looking to explore the many attractions of East Sussex or simply want a relaxing break, The Spinney is an ideal holiday retreat for large groups of up to ten.
