A young couple regularly holidayed in Norman’s Bay, staying in an old fisherman’s cottage. As they walked on the beach they would dream about the possibility of owning the run down local shop,café and hotel and how it could be transformed into a beautiful home, with a little care and attention. Over the years, the building, now ravaged by the sea air, with its advertising signs fading and the garden overgrown, always held a place in the couple’s hearts and memories. Notes through the door achieved nothing, until one day decades later, the couple saw a note in the paper that the property was going to auction. Delaying a trip to Cuba, the husband was ‘forced’ to stay behind, attend the auction and to join his wife later with the good news….. which, of course, he did. You can imagine the love and care that has been put into the restoration of Sunshine and now it is available for others to enjoy when the family are not using it.This Sussex holiday cottage is situated on Norman’s Bay, a quiet stretch of shingle beach between Bexhill and Pevensey. Miles of coastline as far as the eye can see with none of the hustle and bustle normally associated with such a wonderful Sussex seaside location.This charming self-catering holiday house in Sussex is tucked away at the end of a single track road and has a lovely light and airy feel with serene paint colours, opulent wooden floors with underfloor heating downstairs and huge windows to the front and rear of the house. The owner’s main home in Hong Kong is an obvious influence with the wonderful choice of original artwork and fabrics from the country.Sunshine has been converted from the local shop and hotel to offer a very traditional style of house, with all the bedrooms being upstairs leading off a wide main hallway. As the house has two master bedrooms, both with en-suites, it would be great for an extended family or a group of friends. For families with young children the enclosed courtyard is perfect for them to play safely while you keep an eye on them. The sitting room has comfortable sofas and chairs grouped around the fireplace, making this ideal for winter or summer breaks – a really cosy area in the depths of winter after a bracing walk on the Sussex beach! In the summer with all the doors open, this luxury holiday cottage has a charm all of its own in this wonderfully unspoilt landscape in East Sussex.Sunshine is sure to please the most discerning family looking to spend quality time away from the rest of the world. All in all, this self catering holiday cottage is a real gem of a location in Sussex, where time stands still and memories are made – you can’t ask for more!
