“Brilliant, Excellent Hosts And A Really Nice Cottage”

I would highly recommend Friston Down In Eastbourne, quite simply the owners couldn't do more to make you feel welcome, Phil is extremely knowledgeable about the local area with good suggestions for a day out, he's also a really nice guy, his wife Carolyne is an excellent cook, it was my birthday when we were there and they cooked our family an excellent meal. The accommodation is excellent, with really comfortable beds, full sky package and wifi. On arriving we agreed times with Phil and Carolyn when we could use the pool, no hassle there and their family is willing to fit around you. The pool is a really good size and heated to 30oC when we were there. I would highly recommend this property and if we were ever in the Eastbourne area again I would most definitley stay here. Well done Phil and Carolyn, thanks from our family for a great week spent with you.

Our family was 2 adults, 3 children aged 4 - 13.

Was reluctant to review our holiday stay in Friston Down - wanted to keep this gem to ourselves!
Had great weather and used swimming pool every day. Pool is heated and could be used in usual British summer.
Cottage is clean ,well equipped and full of character. Owners Phil and Carolyn were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive- they made our stay a success.

Thank you for sharing your secret :)
We'll just have to ensure that it's always available for you whenever you fancy heading back to Eastbourne to sample the pool, the views and the hospitality.
Don't worry, I won't tell anyone.....
