I'm Retired from work and lived in the Hastings area for a large part of my life, so can point you in the right direction which ever way you may want to go. My partner works in London during the week and also speaks mandarin, should you want to practice yours for a future holiday. Interests are many and too varied to list.
we have two private rooms in a beautiful house right in the centre of Hastings. A perfect home from home, situated under the shadow of the castle which was built just after the battle of Hastings. The house was built around 1815, at a time when Hastings was expanding.
It is a convenient base to set out from to visit one of the many country parks the UK has to offer, with its marvelous views of the chalk cliffs and sea.
Or if you prefer the town centre, just five mins walk away for all that shopping, or perhaps hop onto a train to visit Brighton, Rye or the metropolis London, should you require tickets can be booked for unlimited travel on all southern trains.
We are now based in London in the Catford area which is less than 10Km from the centre of London only a 20 min train ride brings you in to Blackfriars, there you can hop on the district and circle lines to travel round London
