Celebrating Eastbourne's Boutique B&Bs!

As Saturday 24th March marks National B&B Day, we’re celebrating by highlighting Eastbourne's boutique B&Bs and sharing a handful of reasons that make them special in their own way. From hearty breakfasts and pillow menus to the lovely personal touches that make you feel right at home, these are just a few of the things to love about our B&Bs.

Award-winning Breakfast

It wouldn’t be a Bed and Breakfast without a cracking selection of food to wake up to, would it? Going the extra mile is Southcroft Guest House who are proud winners of the VisitEngland Breakfast Award for their appetising breakfast spread, from homemade bread and preserves to fresh fruit, omelettes and a traditional full English!

Also providing a mouth-watering breakfast buffet is The Mowbray whose spread includes everything from smoked salmon and eggs benedict to fresh pastries, pancakes and waffles. This gets our bellies rumbling just thinking about it!


Perfect for Families

When there’s just not enough space in the suitcase to fit all of the little ones’ toys, it’s ideal to stay somewhere with a playroom. The Sheldon B&B is a great stop for families, with spacious family rooms and a playroom packed with games, toys and books. Forgotten your bucket and spade? Not to worry as The Sheldon offer beach essentials that guests can borrow, from rock pooling nets to beach windbreakers.

Follow in the Footsteps of Literary Legends

One of Eastbourne’s oldest houses at over 300-years-old is the stunning Ocklynge Manor, once home to Peter Pan illustrator Lucie Mabel Attwell. This incredible house features a sun-trap reading nook that overlooks the enchanting garden, perfect for cosying up with a literature classic. Now a 5* B&B, you can stay in double or twin rooms and enjoy the Old Town location, just a short walk from the Town centre.

The Old Town’s 12th century pub, The Lamb Inn, is one of the oldest in the pubs in the country dating back to 1180. Boasting a vast selection of real ales from local Harvey’s Brewery, their guestrooms are suitably named after Harvey’s ales with quirky names such as the ‘Georgian Dragon’, ‘Armada’ and ‘Star of Eastbourne’. The historic pub is a hit with the locals and was also a favourite for Charles Dickens who reputably held performances here in the past.

Bring Along Your Four-Legged Friend

Here at VisitEastbourne, we believe that dogs are part of the family too so why should they have to miss out on a holiday? Making sure that your four-legged friend gets a break too is The Royal where dogs stay free! Their seafront location makes it perfect for walkies on the beach* and across the South Downs National Park.

*Please note there are restrictions on certain beaches, more here.

Ideal for Walking Holidays

With the 100-mile-long South Downs Way beginning in Eastbourne, our destination makes for the perfect base to explore the South Downs National Park in all its luscious, green glory. Located at the foot of the South Downs National Park and minutes from the seafront, Southcroft Guest House offers the ideal location for walkers to relax after a busy day of exploring.
