About This Listing
Large, airy room with ensuite bathroom in a late Georgian Town house, overlooking private gardens and the sea. Quiet and peaceful. 5 minutes from the sea.
This is a large, sunny room with its own spacious bathroom , looking out over private gardens. We are in a Georgian house in a secluded corner of St Leonards' bohemian quarter . It is really peaceful here with private communal gardens in front of this row of beautiful Georgian villas. We have our own large garden with studios at the back. We are just 5 minutes walk from the sea and a 30 minute walk along the seafront to the historic old town with its unique fishing fleet on the beach. We are 10 mins from the train station taking you directly to London and fashionable Brighton. The room is large and airy with a comfortable double bed with cotton sheets and its own en suite bathroom. It looks out onto the lovely communal garden. We can accommodate a carry cot or put up an extra single bed for a child. We are on a private road so it is very peaceful and quiet. Parking is available.
A couple of minutes walk away is an excellent restaurant, St Clements, serving locally sourced food, though you may need to book at weekends. Next to it is The Horse and Groom , the oldest and best pub in St Leonards. Also nearby on Norman Road and the seafront are lots of lovely cafes which sell good food, and there are some fun vintage and second-hand clothes shops as well as antique shops and galleries. In the Old Town is the recently opened Jerwood gallery . Hastings is an eccentric town that likes any excuse to celebrate so there is usually a festival or event of some kind going on such as the Seafood and Wine Festival and the Coastal Currents Art Festival both in September,the Green Man festival in May and Old Town week in August..
A great place to visit nearby is the De La Warr Pavillion in Bexhill which has high profile art exhibitions .There is also easy access to the gorgeous Hastings country park by taking the Victorian funicular lift from the Old Town.
A perfect get-away from the city!
We have wi-fi and limited parking. A simple breakfast of tea/coffee toast and cereal is available on request and is included.
We have a piano if anyone feels the urge to play.

I stayed with Adrienne 2 years ago and had fond memories of 'Elegance by the Sea' - and I must say, it certainly still is elegant and Adrienne and her family are lovely hosts. The room was warm and welcoming, with fresh flowers on the fire place and a spacious private bathroom.
This was our second stay with Adrienne and Nick and it was every bit as enjoyable as the first. Great hosts, great room in a great house. Thanks again!
The hosts were absolutely lovely! Made us feel very warm and welcome. We found the house a bit untidy. Also, we had a five month old baby and didn't feel it was a quiet enough place for his naps and bedtime. Overall lovely hosts, good location, scrumptious breakfast and would recommend.
Adrienne and Nick are very kind hosts who makes sure that you feel comfortable in their home. The room is spacious and elegant with an bathroom of your own, which is really comfi. Their house is idealy located next to an park and the seaside. The area is upcoming with a lot of nice arty shops and cafes. Also is close by the center of Hastings. I could really recommend enjoying a lunch or diner at St Clements if you're around! Also Rye is a beautiful little town with a great cinema/art center (Kino).
A wonderful warm & friendly welcome by Adrienne and Nick in their beautiful family home for myself and my little boy Arthur (3 years).
The house is in a beautiful setting looking out onto 'The Lawn' a private garden for the residents. Inside the walls are filled with art and photography, making the walk to and from our room always interesting.
Lovely breakfast in the kitchen, with a fire warming us was something to look forward to at the start of our days. We particularly enjoyed Adrienne's homemade marmalade and quince jelly!
Arthur loved it so much he cried when we were leaving, and I felt like I had made two new friends...
We had a really lovely weekend in Hastings. Adrienne and Nick (and their cat) were warm, helpful and interesting hosts who made us feel welcome straight away. Their house is beautiful and homely and our room was large and comfortable. The house is located in St Leonards - about 30mins walk away from Hastings, or 5mins by train. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely stay with Adrienne and Nick. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home right away. Their house is really beautiful and the bedroom and en-suite much larger than we were expecting! A great location too - just set back from the sea and with some lovely cafes around. We also really enjoyed the amenities in Hastings Old Town and had some great meals and coffees there. The only problem was the wind which made the 20min walk there rather chilly! We had a really relaxing stay and went back to London feeling refreshed. Would highly recommend.
