Additional amenities & feature info
We have solar water heating to take advantage of the sun with backup from gas for provision of both hot water & heating. When there is a party of 8 there is no rushing for showers as there are 2 shower rooms and a shower over the bath in the bathroom with a seperate toilet upstairs. The house is very versitile & everyone can join together or do there own thing. You can choose how much you do or how little. We find it is a great place for families to meet together, when they live in different parts of the country. Pets are not left out, as they are members of the family too. The owners live next door and are on hand to help with any problems or give advice. We have a welcome folder with information to answer the most commonly asked questions. There are handbooks for the National Trust & English Heritage as well as literature featuring other attractions, to give you ideas on where to go if you haven't decided already. The owners grow different fruits & vegetables & visitors to the house can share the produce of the season.

About the neighbourhood
Hastings has so many attractions in & around the area. The next event is, The Hastings Beer Festival with 'Keen' playing but I think tickets are sold out for that evening but there are other acts on other days. The Olympic torch is staying in Hastings over night on the 17th July. On the 22nd July, the Red Arrows are flying over but for a full list of events please check out our website. Many of the pubs have live music to suit different tastes. Hastings is steeped in history with many famous writers & artists getting inspiration from the area. Catherine Cookson made her home here for many years. Rudyard Kipling lived at Bateman's in Burwash just about 15 miles north. In August we have the Old Town Week and there is a whole fun filled week ending with Fireworks in the Castle Ruins. The Old...
