The stretch of coastline from Eastbourne along the South Downs is the perfect, intimate setting for a romantic weekend break beneath the stars. Reconnect away from the hustle and bustle with big skies, clear air and breath-taking countryside. 

Lie back and gaze at the stars at Birling Gap and watch the heavens unfold before you whilst sharing a picnic and flask of hot chocolate. At Birling Gap absorb the full effect of the dramatic Seven Sisters cliffs and follow the South Downs Way to Eastbourne.

With its own in-room telescope to watch the night skies, the Waterside Boutique Hotel set on Eastbourne’s stunning seafront is the perfect indulgent stopover. Sip champagne at the cocktail bar or enjoy a luxurious spa treatment for the ultimate pamper at this relaxing rural retreat.
