“Great last minute weekend break”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Decided fairly late to take a trip to Eastbourne, my first time to Sussex and I loved it thanks to a wonderful stay at Wendy House. Tim was super prompt in getting back to me and made the whole reservation process super easy. He provided directions and instructions on the day and gave recommendations on places to eat locally. Jan met us there and we loved her! She was bubbly and helpful, showing us around the cottage and helping us get settled.

The house was in a tucked away location (be prepared for a rather commercial area, but suited us fine) and just a few blocks from the train station, so super convenient for those travelling by train. You can walk to shopping, restaurants and the beach front is about a 20 minute walk. Beachy Head is also near by, about 10 mins by car. It is a great place to walk and explore. Also Tunbridge Wells is fairly close for a day trip. We went there for lunch on our way home and loved it!

The house had everything we needed and a great selection of children's videos which came in handy. The only minus in my opinion were the beds, I was in the two twin room with my daughter. The mattresses were not the most comfortable, but then again nothing is as good as home. :-) Also, if you have a bigger car, you will not be able to park in the attached garage. I have a Honda Jazz and it was a super tight fit getting in and out.

My 4 year old daughter especially loved the neighbour's little kitty that paid us regular visits. Days later my daughter is still talking about her holiday at Wendy House and what fun she had. We truly enjoyed our visit and will be making another trip down!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. I am so glad you and your family had such a fantastic stay at Wendy House! However I was sorry to hear the mattresses didn't seem to be comfortable. We chose memory foam as we felt it would offer comfort for most guests and have received positive comments about them. However like all mattresses, we realise they will not suit everyone and thank you for your comments. Also, just to confirm, should parking in the garage prove difficult for anyone there are onstreet options available nearby.
You certainly made the very most of your time in Eastbourne and we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the future.

“Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Wendy House is a lovely place in a calm, but central area of Eastbourne.
It's only 5 minutes by foot to the train station and 20 minutes to the seafront.

The house itself has a tasteful interior an space enough for 2 adults and 2 teens.

we would be glad to come to Wendy House again in the future

“Great cottage in a perfect location!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed with another couple for 3 nights and it was just the right size for all of us. The housekeeper met us on our arrival and gave us information on the cottage and location, she had even left some basic supplies. The cottage is in the perfect location, tucked away from the main streets but only 10 minutes walk to the seafront. We will definitely use Wendy house again in the future.
