A poll conducted by The Times has revealed that Eastbourne is the fourth best place in the country to find a property by the sea. A top destination for those looking to stay in holiday cottages in Sussex, Eastbourne has won over the hearts of Times readers everywhere.
The East Sussex town has previously been described as "the sunniest place in Britain" and it also has all the facilities to help visitors make the most of this sunshine. The Times highlighted some of the favourite holiday hotspots, including the numerous ice-cream parlours, water sport facilities and the elegant promenade.
Eastbourne was narrowly beaten by the Kent town of Broadstairs which claimed the top spot in the list of the best UK seaside homes, but in terms of offering plenty for visitors to see and do, Eastbourne can offer so much more in the form of bucketfuls of natural beauty as well as plenty of attractions, restaurants and activities.
