We enjoyed our stay at The Lookout despite the storms!. Lovely spacious apartment with amazing views over the sea. However, it is a little tired (more shabby than chic). A few tweaks to make it up to 4* accommodation, but would happily stay again.

The Lookout was perfect for us. Needed the car to get to the beach for my elderly Mum but we had fabulous weather and we were more than happy to use the garden (with the sea view) most afternoons. No handrails going down to the decking area on uneven steps which may be a problem for some ( but handrails would spoil the view, so what do you do?)

The location does what it says - its a fantastic lookout spot with a nice garden and decking area overlooking the sea. It is at the top of the west hill so might be hard for those with mobility issues , but for us it was wonderful - and we also took the coastal path from stleonards into Bexhill . Would recommend this place for a short stay. We founRead mored it fairly easy to park along the road near the house. Liked the book with the recommendations in it which was left for renters - thx !

We really enjoyed our stay. The place is well equipped, clean, neat, peaceful & comfortable, south facing - to catch the sunshine anytime throughout the entire day. Perfectly positioned on the top of the cliff for outstanding, uninterrupted & breathtaking sea view. Just the short stroll down the cliff takes you to the beach, restaurants, local shopRead mores & park. (Way back up the hill could be a challenge if you dont like walking) We totally loved all about this place and definitely will come back. Hide

A beautiful home with glorious views in a quiet area. There is an abundance of light, indoor and outdoor space. Even in the middle of a mild winter, we were out on the deck every evening for sundowners and then again later in the evening just to enjoy the sight and sound of the sea. We enjoyed a very peaceful stay.

Fantastic property. Very clean and comfortable. Would recommend. The only negative thing and its my fault is when I saw the photo of the sea view I thought it was literally at the end of the garden.

The cottage is well decorated and equipped. Nice that there were Xmas decorations. Lovely views. The sun room must be great in the summer but as its unheated was too cold to use when we visited. Secure garden for dog was a massive plus for us. Parking was an issue when packing and unpacking the carand carrying logs to the cottage.

The view was exceptional, the cleaning overall was good however below my home standard it the little things that count. The apartment was lovely and quiet which is what I wanted. Parking was ok even though we had a huge wheelchair accessible vehicle. I would suggest that perhaps a portable ramp is included would help with the steps in to the properRead morety as most people have pushchairs if not a wheelchair like us. I would ask that bin bags are provided all that was there was in the bin Hide

For a thalassophile (someone drawn to the sea) this place is near perfect. Large garden, terrace and conservatory means you can enjoy the view whatever the weather. Garden is secure for the 4-legged guest. The apartment itself is beautiful: spacious, comfortable, well-equipped.
