    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.

    "We had a great holiday. Spider's Light is excellently located for exploring the Old Town and gives stunning views out to sea and across Hastings. There are plenty of places to eat within a few minutes walk. The cottage is well equipped and is a charming place to stay and to relax in."

    "Lovely accommodation and superb surroundings.Cottage was spotless however, our stay was affected by the inexcusable state of the bedding in main bedroom.There was blood on one pillowcase, stain on sheet and ink on duvet cover. Having contacted the owner we were directed to change the bedding. We did not expect to be stripping a bed on our first morning. Layout of the bathroom is not ideal but ok for a short time. Having to contact the owner to provide heating not ideal at this time of year. We had no control over when the heating was turned on as this was done by the owner by remote."

    "Fab property in excellent location, photos online don't do it justice. Excellent communication from owner."
    Harmen ‐ 24 Jul 2019
    "Lovely little house on excellent location with great view over the beach and fishing fleet. In the evenings we could sit outside on the terrace."
    Sue ‐ 7 Jul 2019
    "If steps and stairs aren't your thing, then this isn't the cottage for you, but you'll be missing out on wide-ranging sea views to three points of the compass, compact and comfortable accommodation, and living at the heart of the historic old town. Read the description carefully - there are no surprises (apart from a shoes-off-at-the-door rule), make sure it's your kind of place and you'll have a great time. It suited two friends on a short break, and we wished we'd had a week."
    Maggie ‐ 7 Jun 2019
    "This was our third stay at Spiders Light and again we had a lovely time. The owner of the house is very friendly and good at communication. We love the location of the house and its clean and homely appearance. Little treats on arrival are LOVELY! And much appreciated."
    Morten ‐ 21 May 2019
    "This cottage is in a great location. In the old town and very close to pubs and the seafront. The views are magnificent. It is a small and traditional cottage, which means that the rooms are relatively small and the stairs steep. I was on my own so I was comfortable. It would fit two adults fine; three adults would be cramped. The bed was very comfortable; I slept like a baby. As it’s an old house it might get cold in winter as old houses don’t have the insulation of modern houses. I doubt that it’ll be an issue though unless the temperatures drop towards zero and below (which, I suspect, it rarely does in the south of England). My only objection to the house is the bathroom. It is small and the toilet space is minimal."
    Klaus ‐ 17 Apr 2019
    "We have spent our third time at this wonderful house and we could recommend it without doubt. Nothing is missing for a reposing stay at the seaside: a well equipped house, a perfect location in Hastings Old town with a view to three directions and good pubs, restaurants and the nature parc nearby. We felt at home right from the beginning."
    Peter ‐ 13 Jan 2019
    "A lovely place to stay that makes the very best of an off-season break. The cottage makes terrific use of the limited space (although it would be better to replace the bath with a shower) and is extremely comfortable. The local pub -The Crown - is a bonus."
    Anna ‐ 11 Nov 2018
    "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."
