Descrizione

Come stay in our quirky flat situated in an ample Victorian pile. Perfect for those seeking an alternative to the uniformity of hotels. We are rigorous about cleaning but this is an old building with burners so expect a bit of grit.

Spacious flat with 2 bedrooms. It's close to shops, beach and train station. Quirky & comfy it has woodburners & sleeps 6 (in proper beds). It's perfect for families but the master bedroom makes it great for couples, too with or without a car!

Welcome to our retreat in St Leonard's. Our place reflects the eclectic nature of St Leonard's very well, beautiful if a little run down in places. It is in a large, rambling Victorian house, but has its own charm and we have made sure it is cosy.
You have an entire 2 bedroom flat at your disposal with its own private entrance.The master room has a double bed and the second room has 2 bunk beds sleeping 4 singles, so the flat can accommodate 6 in total without compromise. We can provide a travel cot if you need one All bedding is pure cotton and the towels are good quality too. The rooms are furnished with retro pieces and knick knacks which we have picked up in the local area providing plenty of character throughout. To the rear is a private terrace, for evening BBQs or you can drink tea (or G&T) in the sunny front garden. There is a wood burning stove in the lounge and another stove which takes smokeless fuel in the rear room, so this is a cosy retreat all year round. We are continuing to work on the interiors and have plans for the kitchen which we have not been able to realise yet. We also respond to feedback - so if there is anything guests think can improve the experience we will act on that as soon as we reasonably can. We can now even boast a recently refurbished bathroom. However this is our holiday home too so the suggestion would have to be something we like. For example - we will never get a microwave!
The flat is a 7 minute walk from St Leonard's Warrior Square station (which has a direct line to London) and a 7 minute downhill stroll to the beach (you can see the sea from the front gate). There is also free on-street parking right outside if driving. St Leonard's is renowned for it's artists, artisans and quirky shops full of vintage and retro fare, antiques, haberdashery, art galleries, cafes........ all of these are a short walk from the flat. Don't forget to stop off at the Saint Leonard on London Road for a drink and bar snack (dogs and children welcome) or visit St Leonard's oldest pub, the Horse and Groom (known locally as the Doom and Gloom, but don't let that put you off) for a more traditional pub experience. Along the seafront is Hastings and a little further is the Old Town with its bustling vintage shops and fishing huts, cafes, restaurants and the newly opened Jerwood Gallery.
Year round there is plenty to do: Springtime walks through the bluebell woods at Battle or Brede.
Beach in the summer.
Every September Hastings hosts "Coastal Currents' a festival of visual arts that infiltrates most cafes, shops and galleries as well as less likely sites such as the seafront - anything is possible.
The Seafood Festival is also held mid-September every year.
October - Hasting's has its own Bonfire night (a procession, a giant bonfire and firework finale).
Autumnal walks in Hastings Country Park (amazing cliff top views across the channel).
If the blustery walks are not for you there are plenty of shops cafes and amusements to retreat to as well as galleries, including the Jerwood Hastings and De La Warr Pavillion Bexhill.

We like to be as flexible as possible about checking in and out times, but if guests are checking out the same day you arrive then check in will be after 3pm. If guests are checking in the same day you are checking out then check out will be by 11am.

Please note that for most of the year the minimum stay is 2 nights. However, during the summer holidays the minimum stay is 1 week, and at other peak times we do give preference to longer stays. Though if at short notice the apartment is still available we will consider shorter bookings.

You have your own private entrance, front garden and rear terrace (complete with BBQ, table, chairs). You'll find a supply of wood for the stove, space outside front door (undercover) for dirty wellies and free parking on the street.

We live in London so you will have the place to yourself. Keys will be left for you to let yourself in. - this takes the pressure off arrivals as you do not have to get there at a specific time to meet someone. However, if you do prefer, we are blessed with lovely neighbours who will be happy to show you the ropes, just let me know and I'll arrange it. I am contactable throughout and happy to offer advice or tips! I can be reached by message/phone. Happy to have as much or as little contact as guests would like.

St Leonard's itself is a rough diamond - it is full of beautiful Regency and Victorian buildings - many looking ravaged by time but just as many being restored to glory. Artists and artisans have made their homes here so the town has a rich mix of creatives, locals and some abandoned souls. Our house is near the top of a hill and what we like about this area is the scale of the houses and the streets - it is all very sumptuous, though neglected in places. We love that we can see the sea from our front gate and that we can walk easily to the station, the shops and the beach. And we looove the range of shops and galleries that are just down the road from us selling all kinds of handmade, craft and retro items.

St Leonard's / Hastings is of a walkable scale. We do often walk along the seafront to the main town or the Old Town - though with young children this might be challenging. There are lots of buses, the taxis are reasonably priced and so is the parking. Parking is free on the street outside our place. The station is very close by and can take you to Hastings and Rye in one direction or Bexhill, Eastbourne and Brighton in the other.

Our children are now grown so although we welcome small children (and indeed people of all ages ) we only have a travel cot to offer (no highchair or microwave!) and we may be out of touch the needs of tiny people! We have a small dog who comes with us when we are at the property. We also welcome dogs of guests. Please bear this in mind when booking.
Wifi is included in the price - we share it with our neighbour and at some points in the second bedroom it can be intermittent. However my husband carries out his work while we are there (as have plenty of other guests too) which involves the transfer of large files and we have never had any issues. My children also seem to happily stream films in the other room too.

Ciao, io, mio marito e i nostri 3 bimbi siamo stati nell'appartamento di Julie per 3 settimane. Da subito Julie si è dimostrata gentile e veloce a rispondere ad ogni nostra domanda. L'appartamento è grande e ben fornito ed è in una zona tranquilla, il parcheggio di fronte a casa è gratuito e c'è sempre posto. Durante il nostro soggiorno Julie ci ha dato info su supermarket, ristoranti e altro, è stata una piacevolissima vacanza e consigliamo a chiunque l'appartamento.

Julie is een geweldige host. De communicatie met haar was snel en vriendelijk. We kwamen aan in een schoon huis en het netjes en gezellig ingericht. Handdoeken lagen klaar en de bedden waren opgemaakt. We hebben duidelijke afspraken gemaakt over de sleutel van het huis. Echt heel goed. Ook beschikt het huis over een kleine tuin, wat lekker is als je eventjes buiten wil zitten. Het was een mooi verblijf. Wel ligt het huis een beetje uit de richting van het centrum van Hastings en Old Town. Mensen die niet goed te been zijn, of mensen met hele kleine kinderen, kunnen beter de dichtstbijzijnde bus pakken (wat niet duur is) of de taxi (wat ook veel minder duur is dan in Nederland). Mensen die het lekker vinden om te lopen, of gewoon goed te been zijn is dit een prima afstand. Het is heerlijk om langs de zee te lopen. Al met al was het een goed verblijf.

Julie was super quick with all communication and everything was exactly as described in the listing. Check in and parking were both a breeze and the flat was spacious and really well located for Kings Road, the Seafront and Hastings. It was really nice to stay in a property with such character, filled with antiques and curiosities!

We had such a lovely stay in Julie's flat. It was very much like the photos with lots of lovely vintage furniture. The rooms were all a good size, comfy beds and pretty quiet. The kitchen was well equipped. Lovely location about a 5 minute walk to the beach and centre of Saint Leonards. Hastings was a bit more of a drive or bus ride to get to, and it wasn't easy to park. We managed to find a car park right at the end of town near the harbour. Nice mix of cafes, pubs and gift store in both Saint Leonards and Hastings. Would definitely recommend The Crown pub the food was delicious and good atmosphere. Truffle beauty salon was great for a massage or nails if you had time to do that too.

Myself, my partner, and our dog, were very much looking forward to our stay in St Leonards, and we were not disappointed. We found our dealings with Julie to be very open, friendly and informative. Our hopes and expectations on the comfort and quality of the accommodation for our stay were exceeded. We couldn't have asked for much more. The location, facilities and setting for our stay were spot on. We would heartily recommend this lovely apartment as a comfortable base for sure, and we will definitely stay here again in the future.

We are three female friends with a dog in tow and Julie's flat was perfect for us for a nice weekend away. We are artists, so wanted to explore St Leonard's art scene and the 3 local galleries: Towner, De La Warr and Jerwood. The beach walking is great (pebbly at high tide) and we walked one day towards Bexhill and the next, to Hastings. We had lovely local meals and pub drinks too. I was concerned the bunk beds might be small or uncomfortable for us adults but they were really comfortable and I slept very well. The sitting area is nice and the whole flat has a relaxed, quirky vintage feel. We only used the kitchen for our cereal and coffee in the morning so can't comment on the cooking experience! Many thanks Julie

5 adults, 1 child and a dog stayed for 2 nights in February 2017. We found the accommodation very beautiful, spacious, cosy and retro. It was only a 10 min walk from the train station and easy to get to. Julie was very quick with communication and accommodating to our needs. The views in the area are very refreshing. We walked to the local Lidl supermarket which took aprox 20 min (mainly up steep hills, which we are not used to London!) and took a cab back which only cost £5.50 There is an amazing Italian restaurant (La Bella Vista) on the sea front, which is about a 10/15 min stroll from the house. We would come back in a heartbeat. If you are thinking about staying here, DO IT! Thank you for being a great host Julie.

I live in central London with my family and we depend on breaks to the Sussex coast to revive our souls! We love London but we also love the outdoors so this is how we get the balance. I work for lighting and graphic designers some of the week, my family all of the week and whenever possible I write and perform my songs.
