About William Ellse

We are a professional couple living in Kent. We have owned the property for 7 years and use it ourselves 5/6 times a year. We have look after the cottage as though it is our first home and have a lovely housekeeper who has never had a complaint all the years we have been letting it.

William Ellse purchased this cottage in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Best location in Hastings"



Spent a long weekend in Hastings at this cottage which was perfectly placed within a few minutes walk from everything you would need. Very clean and tidy, great fireplace. Will go again.



"Fabulous cosy cottage in heart of Old Town"



I booked this for new year, for a party of six of us (three couples). Every year we go away to the coast somewhere and book a cottage, and have therefore seen the good and bad of holiday rentals. Church Passage Hastings is a fabulous little find. It is cosy, with wood floors and original features, but has a well-equipped kitchen and - crucially for a winter break - great central heating. It also has excellent touches that you don't find elsewhere, like really good quality bedding. It is also right in the middle of the old town, and yards away from the wonderful Jenny Lind pub. Hastings is getting more interesting as the years go by, with a real quirky vibe in the Old Town, with lots of great shops and artsy cafes (though the new town is still a dive). We had an excellent few days at the cottage and would definitely book it again. The only thing that I would add is that parking is not great. The cottage is in a small alleyway on the side of the church, and parking in the Old Town is near-impossible at the best of times. so what we did was drop our stuff off, and then send somebody up the hill to park at the top. I would also say that the owners could get some better pictures done, because the ones we saw did not really do justice to the place. Anyway, it's a great cottage and would recommend.

Ein Haus mit Charme

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in diesem Haus. Es liegt wunderbar zentral in Hastings (Achtung: keine Parkplätze vor der Tür -diese können ggf bei der Stadt angemietet werden ). Das Haus ist alt,aber das macht seinen Charme aus. Es ist gepflegt,sauber und nett eingerichtet. (Für die Sauberkeit sorgt eine Angestellte.,so dass man sich um die Endreinigung keine Gedanken machen muss.)

Der Vermieter ist sehr unkompliziert und entgegenkommend.

Einziges Manko sind die optisch hübschen aber recht offenen Badezimmertüren.

Hastings an sich ist ein kleines Fischerdorf mit einer schönen Altstadt (in der das Cottage liegt). Ansonsten sicherlich nicht das hübscheste Städtchen am der Südküste,man kann aber mit dem Auto von hier aus alles gut erreichen.

(Da es ein Fischerdorf ist : man bekommt morgens fangfrischen FHafen unschlagbar günstig vom Fischer im Hafen.)

Alles in allem hatte wir einen erholsamen Urlaub,was sich nicht zuletzt auf das wunderbare Cottage zurückführen lässt.
