Celebrating Our Local B&Bs

18 March 2019

Did you know that there are over 20,000 B&Bs in the UK, and that they generate over £2 billion annually to the UK economy? Definitely something worth celebrating!

If you are planning a seaside break, then there is no better time than during National B&B Week which runs from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 March. B&Bs and guesthouses across the country get involved with this celebratory week by offering guests a variety of incentives to stay from money off to complimentary bottles of wine and chocolates!


Award-winning Breakfast

It wouldn’t be a Bed and Breakfast without a cracking selection of food to tuck into, would it? Going the extra mile is Southcroft Guest House who are proud winners of the VisitEngland Breakfast Award for their appetising selection of food from homemade bread and jam 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!

Sea Views

You can’t beat a seaside break but it’s even better when you can awake to gorgeous views of the sea! Many of our local guesthouses and B&B’s are perfectly positioned to offer their guests some sensational views.

The Langtons located on Royal Parade is one such establishment. Most of their rooms either have spectacular views across the bowling green to the sea or views of the South Downs to the rear (some even have both!)

Or enjoy a warm welcome with similar sea views at Bassets House. Close to a range of seaside attractions including the Redoubt Fortress.


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, arts and crafts and books.

Forgotten your bucket and spade? Not to worry as The Sheldon offer beach essentials that guests can borrow, from rockpooling nets to beach windbreakers.

Ocklynge Manor

Historic 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 beautiful house overlooks an enchanting garden, with a sun-trap reading nook that is perfect for cosying up with a literature classic. Now a 5* B&B, you can stay in double or twin rooms and enjoy a short walk to the Old Town and town centre.
