    About this property

    Perfectly located to explore Hastings and all its surrounding attractions, this property sits in a superb area.
    Wonderful sea views from most rooms. Perfectly placed to explore Hastings and all its surrounding attractions, Spider’s Light, as seen in Foyle’s War, is located in the heart of the old town and nestles in the east cliffs, with access to Hastings Country Park. With sea views from almost every room, the stunning scenery can be enjoyed both inside the cottage during the winter months, and outside whilst enjoying a glass of wine on the enclosed decked terrace. After a brisk walk along the seafront, nestle down on the comfortable sofa and batten down the hatches! Boasting two cosy bedrooms and a compact bathroom, you will be sure to enjoy a good nights rest at this fantastic retreat. This small, 1860’s cottage, originally built for local fisherman, is situated 50 yards from an excellent award winning gastro pub; perfect for evening dining. Spiders Light is situated just 300 yards from the beach and close to a lovely strip of shops and restaurants.
    Spiders Light is rumoured to be named after a fisherman who once dwelt in this pretty, converted, end terrace holiday cottage. Spider used to put a light in his window which would guide the fishermen home, and wives would look out from the window to watch for incoming boats. Hastings still has the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe and you can also see the iconic black weather-boarded net huts. Look the other way and Hastings old town twinkles at night in front of you and behind is East Hill Country Park with walks from the doorstep. This provides access to 660 acres of woodland, heath and 5 miles of cliff-tops, also accessible via the steepest funicular railway in Britain. Visit the remains of Hastings Castle, discover Hastings’ smuggling past deep in the West Hill at St Clement’s Caves and explore the narrow streets and passageways known as twittens in the old town. Jerwood Gallery houses 20th and 21st century British art and is located in the Stade area - the old fishing quarter. If you have time don’t miss Battle Abbey and Camber Sands, offering miles of golden rolling sand dunes, or the National Trust properties in the area. Hastings train station has good connections to London for additional sightseeing opportunities. Beach 300 yards. Shop and restaurants 200 yards, pub 50 yards.
    Lower ground floor: Dining room/kitchen with patio doors and tiled floor. Steep stairs to ground floor: Living room. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Stairs to first floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double with additional Z-bed (for child), 1 single.
    Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD. Gas hob. Electric oven. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Wi-fi. Decked terrace. Car park 500 yards (at cost). Welcome pack. No smoking.

    "This beautiful cottage has some of the best views in Hastings. It is very well equipped and perfectly situated."
    Michael ‐ 28 Oct 2018
    "The description was very accurate and communication with the owner was excellent. The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable, and the location was great. My only gripe was the lack of larger pans and larger oven dishes. This limited the meals that we wanted to cook, although I appreciate many people prefer to eat out when they’re on holiday."

    "Lovely house, peaceful and quiet. However too many internal steps and bathroom and living too small."

    "A lovely cottage in a great location."

    "Such a lovely quirky homely property with lots of character decorated and furnished in very good taste of a high standard perfect for the cottage.The cottage is very well equipped and the owner has thought of every need. It is in a really good location with lovely views from all windows.Plenty of good restaurants and pubs all within walking distance and a couple of really interesting museums. Fresh fish and seafood available every day from the local fishermen.Hastings Old Town is full of character with lots of lovely little backstreets."

    "We loved our May Half Term stay at S24846 so much! Hastings is such a fascinating place to visit and a great base for exploring the local coastline and the rest of East Sussex. I'd say book for a week because a weekend won't be long enough. S24846 could not be in a better location. You're literally 60 seconds from the fish shops, pubs, fascinating Independant shops, Jerwood gallery and lots more. The view from the little decked sun terrace is really special - it's a a great place to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink. The house is diddy, but absolutely the perfect size for a couple and 1 or 2 kids. The bed I the main bedroom was wonderfully luxuriant and comfortable and the decor throughout was stylish, but also cosy. Yes, the bathroom is a bit small but that wasn't a problem for us, we don't go on hols to spend hours in the bath! And you have to park away from the house, but again that was not a problem for us and any inconvenience was more than compensated for by the pluses of being in such a great spot. I'd recommend a swim or walk at Camber Sands, day trips to Rye and Winchelsea, A visit to Bodium (I think??) castle and the house where Rudyard Kipling lived, now owned by the NT. But most of all I'd recommend wandering around the fascinating winds, twitters and little streets of Hastings Old Town. Lovely cafes, and really cool shops. Much trendier and feistier than Brighton, full of heart and soul and a strong connection with its fishing past too."

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Spider’s Light. It’s very comfortable and well presented, in a prime spot in the Old Town of Hastings, with great views. Lots of really helpful information was provided and we were certainly made to feel welcome. If you decide to book a stay after reading this review I know that you’re destined to have a splendid holiday!"
    Angela ‐ 8 May 2018
    "We had an amazing weekend at Spider’s Light. Beautiful cottage with lovely decor and catered for every need. My son particularly loved his view of the harbour from his bedroom!! It was great staying in the old town with only a short walk from all the sights, shops and restaurants."
    Georgie ‐ 14 Apr 2018
    "A beautiful place to stay, the cottage is beautiful and there is a sea view out of every window...... An absolute joy when you live in London!"
    Kathy ‐ 9 Jan 2018
    "Really lovely cottage with the most fab views. The owner Holly was very helpful and friendly and made the cottage very welcoming. Would love another visit in the spring /summer to make the most of the area and the sweet balcony in the cottage"
