Tom Thumb Fisherman's Cottages


Tom Thumb Fisherman's Self Catering Cottages, provide holiday accommodation in Eastbourne, East Sussex on the south coast of England. The holiday cottages are friendly and family run by the owners, Barbara & Roger.

These 250 year old cottages were built on the beach, two & half centuries ago , for Eastbourne's Fishermen & because of their history , & now being part of Eastbourne's historic past, the cottages are featured within “The East of The Pier Heritage Weekly Walks” , aimed at discovering old Eastbourne.

Today they shelter behind the sea front in Royal Parade, in a quiet street – Burfield Road, just one turning from the beach & sea. The local “Seaside Shops “, “Sainsbury's Local .” etc are round the corner . Eastbourne town centre is a 5 minute walk away, whilst the pier is a gentle stroll along the promenade . We are close to all amenities, bus stops & parking is unrestricted in the streets around the cottages & nearby.

Our two attractive period self catering cottages are sympathetically modernised for the 21 first century, & yet retain the quaint delightful old world charm of yester years.

Each cottage has two bedrooms upstairs , a twin & a double , thus sleeping up to 4 persons. Downstairs, on the ground floor, is the shower room , WC, hand basin, lounge /diner, with TV, DVD CD, radio & kitchen with full size cooker, microwave, fridge /freezer, all utensils, crockery / glassware, etc, hairdryer, iron/board. The cottages are fully equipped, with everything needed for a comfortable stay .

Children are welcome at any age, Each cottage has its own rear fenced locked back yard, with picnic table, washing line, where the children can play. Push chairs, bicycles, surf borads etc, can be safely left here too.

We regret our cottages are unsuitable for people in wheel chairs & sadly we do not accept pets. Smoking is not allowed within the cottages.
