Things to do
Food & drink There is a huge variety of places to eat and drink, in and around Pevensey. This area is renowned for its country pubs; try the Lamb Inn at nearby Wartling, the War-Bill-In-Tun at Warbleton, or the Smuggler’s Inn in Pevensey itself. All are dog-friendly. Fusciardi’s Italian ice-cream parlour on Eastbourne seafront is like Fellini film set inside and serves excellent coffee as well as ice creams. The Beach Deck in Eastbourne is an unfussy venue with sea views and a beach terrace – great for burgers and steaks. While the marina to the east of Eastbourne, Sovereign Harbour, offers another whole selection of places to eat.
To do Water enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice; there are Channel diving excursions from Eastbourne, boat trips, sailing, or bring your kite surf and launch it directly in front of the house. There are a wide array of National Trust properties and gardens to visit – the Elizabethan gardens of Herstmonceaux Castle are of particular note. The South Downs Way is within easy reach, and Pevensey offers the inspiring 31 mile ‘1066 Country Walk’, which starts at Pevensey Castle, winds its way to Herstmonceaux, through to Battle and across the countryside to Rye. Neighbouring Hastings and Eastbourne offer a wealth of arts & cultural attractions, as well as plenty of fun for the family at Drusillas Park and the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway.
We recently stayed at The Beach Hive in Pevensey Bay, which we found on Cabins and Castles website. We were really impressed with the accomodation, clean, comfortable, cosy and really well equipped and dog friendly. The added bonus was it was right on the beach front! What more could you want? It will definitely be visited again.
The garden is beautiful and is set right on the beach, me and Barney loved our early morning walks there. The setting is stunning with easy access into Eastbourne, Brighton etc.
I would highly recommend.
Outstanding cottage. Clean, very well stocked and very comfy. A true home away from home with beach front access and breath taking views of the sea.
