Condo/Apartment
This modern Exclusively Eastbourne holiday apartment is set next to the lock in Sovereign Harbour - so you're ideally positioned to watch boats sail out to sea from your delightful decked patio. Ideal for families, with one double and one twin bedroom, plus two bathrooms, it is comfortably furnished and includes private parking, lift access, WiFi and towels/linen. The Lock offers easy access to the popular Waterfront area restaurants, shops and cafes, while Eastbourne centre is just four miles away. The living space of this first floor apartment is comfortable and relaxing, with two big sofas, a TV and DVD player, and some games and DVDs for entertainment. That's if you can tear yourself away from the views through the patio doors to your private decked terrace, which overlooks the lock...This modern Exclusively Eastbourne holiday apartment is set next to the lock in Sovereign Harbour - so you're ideally positioned to watch boats sail out to sea from your delightful decked patio.

The separate kitchen is well equipped for a self-catering family holiday, and includes a microwave, washer dryer and dishwasher, as well as plenty of cooking utensils. The master bedroom has a double bed and there is a built-in double wardrobe and chest of drawers for your clothes. The modern ensuite shower room has a toilet and sink. The twin bedroom also includes drawers for storage, and the main family bathroom has a bath with hand held shower. All towels and linen are provided, plus an additional set if your stay is two weeks or more. The underground parking space is a good size, so would fit large cars and even a van. There is lift access, so the apartment could suit those with restricted mobility (not wheelchair adapted). This property has a Saturday changeover and is bookable in week blocks in peak season, although flexible arrival dates and shorter stays may be possible out of season and last minute.

A lovely apartment overlooking the lock in the Sovereign Harbour marina. Warm and cosy for a cold and blustery week in November. Our only quibble was that the rooms were a little small (particularly the shower cubicle!). Would definitely return though.
