Thinking of a second home? We have a couple of ideal locations…
Spring is here, sunshine is out, leaf buds are about to burst and it is that time of year… If you are toying with the idea of buying a holiday home somewhere interesting and different and not too far from London, you may want to look at Hastings in Sussex or Deal in Kent.
Hastings has charisma and energy, you have to see for yourself. There is lots going on, the new cookery school, artisan shops, micro-brewery pubs and the Jerwood Gallery make the East Sussex resort a really happening place.
Don’t forget to wander on the beach, amongst the fishermen’s huts and resting fishing fleets, you can even buy fresh fish from a little stall opposite the Jerwood!
The Pier has now been restored after the huge fire and is opening this summer, (14million has been spent on it and well worth it), where film festivals and farmers’ markets will be held. A slow walk through the town allows important vintage browsing, such fun, so many antique, bric a brac shops and individual arty boutiques, perfect for those who enjoy bargain hunting!
The people of Hastings are a fun lot, they organise festivals throughout the year, so make sure you pack your dressing up box! From Fireworks events to May Day festivals, there seems to be something in the planning or happening throughout the year.
Turn east from Hastings and traverse Kent and you will find yourself in another beautiful coastal town of Deal.
This town has started to woo Londoners looking for a weekend bolthole. Just an hour and 22 minutes on the train and you can immerse yourself in beach walks, café life and beautiful Georgian architecture.
If you would just like to try before you buy, don’t forget that we have some lovely holiday properties in Hastings and in Deal, so an ideal way to experience the fun of these coastal treats.
