The Cottage is a wonderful seaside family home built during the Arts and Crafts period - it is full of character and original features, such as the impressive staircase, carved in typical Arts and Crafts style. We have carefully and thoughtfully decorated the house to emulate the surroundings. It is bright, airy, cosy and cheerful. A definite sense of being by the sea.
Norman's Bay is a tranquil, small Hamlet with it's own railway station that runs along the coast from Brighton to Eastbourne, to Hastings and beyond.
There is a tiny shop that opens from March to October - a local pub/restaurant and a Hotel serving good coffee in nearby Cooden.
It is tranquil and peaceful. The birdlife there is a wonder and the beach so very quiet.
There is plenty of living space with two living rooms, a reading area, games room (fully heated, with a mini-fridge, table tennis table, dart board, futon and six Directors chairs with a coffee table) and well maintained garden with wildlife pond.
We have a large wood burning stove in the kitchen/dining conservatory area.
There are three pretty bedrooms that all have sea views, one bathroom incorporating a large corner bath and double shower cubicle with a separate loo and a downstairs shower room with loo.(very handy for sandy people coming home from the beach!)
With such close proximity to the beach, there is a wealth of walking and escaping the stresses of modern life. Beautiful country walks are on your doorstep.
There is so much to explore!
