If your idea of the perfect seaside holiday is waking up in the morning to the sound of the waves washing up on the beach, then The View is likely to be your ideal coastal retreat. Beautifully presented throughout with a stylish decor, this spacious beach house enjoys amazing sea views and affords an idyllic position on a private beach in Normans Bay, just six miles from the bustling seaside resort of Eastbourne.
With plenty of wow factor both inside and out, The View sleeps six guests in three bedrooms. Whether you are enjoying supper inside, relaxing out on the balcony or snuggled up inside watching your favourite movie, you can do so with stunning sea views providing the perfect backdrop.
A peaceful little corner of the Sussex coastline, Normans Bay allows you to tuck yourself away from the crowds and enjoy some peace and tranquility with only the cry of the gulls to disturb you. Spend your days relaxing on a lounger overlooking the sea with a good book, splashing around on the water, enjoying a picnic on the beach or trying your luck at fishing from the shoreline (if you're lucky there is a BBQ area in the rear garden to cook your catch!).
Sandwiched between Eastbourne and Bexhill-on-Sea, you have a multitude of attractions within easy reach for day trips out if you can tear yourself away from this coastal oasis of calm. Visit Pevensey with its castle (and shops for provisions), the seaside resort of Hastings, magnificent Bodium Castle or head to Eastbourne with a great choice of shops, eateries, theatres, pier, promenade and famous bandstand.
Cosmopolitan Brighton is also within easy driving distance if you want a change of seaside scenery, or lace up your walking boots and explore the South Downs with miles of wonderful walks and bike rides to enjoy.
Whether you are looking to explore the many attractions of East Sussex or simply want to relax by the sea, The View is a super choice for a family holiday but make sure you book early, as it is only available for a limited number of weeks throughout the year.
