Sunday 6th - Sunday 13th September 2020

The coastal town of Eastbourne situated on the South Coast remains an appealing seaside retreat for people looking for a coastal coach holiday break.  

Sheltered by the surrounding South Downs, the five mile sandy beaches of Eastbourne are ideal for days spent relaxing or enjoying the outstanding sea views.

Day 1: You will be picked up from home by our door to door service and taken to meet the coach for a leisurely departure south, arriving at our hotel mid-afternoon.

Day 2: A day at leisure to relax and explore your surroundings.

Day 3: This morning we head to the seaside resort of Hastings, one of the south coast’s most historic towns, and home to Britain’s steepest funicular railway and the remains of William the Conqueror’s first English Castle. This afternoon we visit Bateman’s, this beautiful 17th century Manor House was the home of Rudyard Kipling from 1902 to 1936. Most of the rooms including his book-lined study are much as Kipling left them. The delightful grounds run down to the small River Dudwell where there is a watermill, roses, and wildflowers.

Day 4: This morning we enjoy a ride on the Kent & East Sussex Railway before making our way to Carr Taylor Vine Yard. David & Linda Carr Taylor established the vineyard, in the picturesque Sussex countryside just north of Hastings, more than 30 years ago and quickly gained international recognition for their award winning English wines. Here we will take a tour of the vineyard, visit the winery and bottling room, sample some of our wines and even enjoy coffee and cake.

Day 5: We travel to Rye with its quaint charm of the 18th century cobbled streets and breathtaking views of Romney Marsh. We then continue our journey through Tenterden to Battle, situated in the heart of the Sussex Weald in the designated High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is the site of the Battle of Hastings, where William, Duke of Normandy, defeated King Harold II to become William I in 1066.

Day 6: Our excursion takes us to Royal Tunbridge Wells, over 400 years ago, a natural spring welled up from the ground, and it was named “The Tunbridge Wells”. The royal prefix came when Queen Victoria made the town part of her regular holiday sojourns. While here, the Pantiles are well worth a meander through. From here we continue to Groombridge Place Gardens and the Enchanted Forest. First laid out in 1674, these traditional walled gardens set against the romantic backdrop of Groombridge Place, a 17th century, moated manor house, that featured as the Bennet’s home, Longbourn, in the film ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

Day 7: A Day at leisure.

Day 8: We depart Eastbourne and make our way to Chartwell House, the home of Winston Churchill for over forty years. We continue our way homewards to Norfolk, where for our Door to Door service will be waiting to return you home.
