  • Secluded garden for al fresco eating and quiet relaxation
Property code: 64950

If you’re looking to take a relaxing break by the sea with your precious pug or gorgeous greyhound, stay at this welcoming property on the lovely Sussex Coast. Located in a small seaside town on the edge of the South Downs National Park, it offers plenty of opportunities for long, satisfying walks along clifftops or through rolling hills with your special four-legged friend. There’s room for five guests over three bedrooms, and one dog is welcome to come along too.

This welcoming property is decorated in a homely style with plants and cheerful splashes of colour. The spacious lounge has sofas and a wood burner for cosying up with your favourite friend on cooler evenings while you read a few chapters of your novel with a glass of wine at hand. Outside, enjoy morning tea on the patio while your dog chews on his squeaky toy on the lawn nearby. On balmy evenings, dine in the fresh air while your pooch begs for scraps till you give in – it is holiday time, after all.

Saltdean has a few shops plus a shingle beach that’s perfect for taking your wonderful whippet for morning walks – maybe she (or you) will go for a refreshing dip. If you’re feeling like a longer hike, embark on the 9.5-mile walk from Saltdean to Lewes over the downs. Rodmell is a great spot for stopping for lunch on the way. For an urban day out, head into Brighton (5.5 miles), a vibrant seaside city. Take your furry friend for a stroll along the prom, prom, prom before popping into a doggie-friendly pub for a pint of Sussex ale.

This is a lovely house. A real home from home. Very well appointed and lots of thoughtful touches. Great welcome pack. It's very handy for enjoying the buzz of Brighton but is in a quiet, peaceful road if you want to get away from it all. We would really recommend it.

This was our third stay at Starlings, a really comfortable holiday cottage in a great location. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space with a separate dining room and a cosy snug. Great walks along the undercliff, lots of little cafes and pubs in Rottingdean to visit. Plus only a 20 minute bus ride to all the shops, culture and theatreRead mores in Brighton. We will definitely visit again. Hide
