Perfect location in the heart of the Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment in an amazing location, and Martyn was very helpful, and so thoughtful to leave bread, milk and fruit for us. Everything we needed was here, and we would certainly stay here again.

Great Location for Old Town Hastings

  • 4 of 5

This property is located right in Old Town Hastings - making everything available right at the doorstep. The apartment is large, the furniture and beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, and the WiFi worked great. Martyn kindly had milk, butter, and bread waiting for us upon our arrival - so we did not have to rush out to the market to buy them. My only recommendations would be to have some instructions on how to operate the heating located within the apartment itself - just to make it easier for guests. Also, something that I found very helpful at a different location was a little binder that was put together with local information. Some information that visitors might find helpful would be - market location, information on local attractions with some comments on them, local churches, more information on parking locations. I highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Hastings.

Absolutely fantastic location in Old Town Hastings

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment in Old Town Hastings was fantastic. We were able to walk all over the area and see everything. The unit itself was large, with a very big living room area (wonderful for our family of 4).

Martyn met us and provided us with bread, milk, coffee, tea, soap and toilet paper. Very much appreciated.

The only downside was the difficulty in getting parking. Several lots 500 M away, but I was not comfortable leaving the car overnight. Ended up searching for street parking. As well, the seagulls wake up quite early☺.

Grocery Store was a 10 minute walk away and the location was great as a base to visit Dover, Brighton and Battle. was as we expected and we very much enjoyed our stay.

Gem of a place!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved staying here. Loads of space and so central.

The bread and fruit and milk left by the owner were a lovely touch! We will definitely be staying here next time we visit the area. Clean apartment with everything needed for a stay in Hastings.

Mattresses were comfy.

Bedding lovely.

Hot shower

Equipped kitchen


Others have recommended Rock O Nore car park... but we found it an uncomfortable walk with suitcases. The pavements were uneven and potholing which wasn't easy to drag luggage along. For us, the better option was the Bourne Car Park. Note - both car park costs are £9 for 24 hours parking.

About Martyn Kemp

I moved to Hastings in 2005 when I bought the tackle shop below the flat. Previous to this I was a scientist with many years experience in the fine chemical industry and biomedical research.

Martyn Kemp purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Martyn Kemp chose Hastings

The flat became available in late 2013 and was a natural fit being very handily located and ideally spacious for holiday letting. After extensive redecoration it is now a very comfortable holiday base.

What makes this apartment unique

The very large lounge with its big windows give a real feel of space and light. Very easy access to all the bars and restaurants of the lively Old Town.

The modern apartment is in the heart of the Old Town in Hastings and ideally situated for the beach (400m) and the many surrounding attractions. The very lively Old Town is full of character and old buildings (the neighbouring house is the Old Courthouse and is the oldest in Hastings dating from the 15th century) with many quirky shops and antique shops in the little lanes. The TV series Foyle's War was filmed all round the Old Town. There are many very good restaurants and pubs along with the finest fish and chips in the country. Regular big events are the Old Town Carnival Week at the beginning of August, May bank holiday Jack in the Green festival, Motor bike rally (May bank holiday - which attracted an estimated 100,000 people in 2014!). Beach bonfire (October). Pirates day (20 July 2014) - Hastings is the current world record holder for most people dressed as pirates (over 14000!). Hastings is also one of the sunniest towns in the country with our close neighbour Eastbourne the sunniest.

The fishing harbour has the largest beach launched fleet in the country with many fresh fish outlets and the unique iconic Hastings Net Huts. The Sea life Centre, Fisherman's museum, Lifeboat Station and New Jerwood art gallery are all within 500m. If you want to go fishing the tackle shop is below!

Further afield Battle is just 10 miles away, visit the Abbey and 1066 battlefield. Eastbourne is about 20 miles west and Tunbridge Well and the Kent Weald is about 30miles north. Dover is an hours drive away if you fancy a day trip to France.
