Property description

Ideally located 4 star guest house offering smart and comfortable accommodation. All 14 guest bedrooms have ensuite facilities and there is a spacious guest lounge and dining room with high speed broadband. The owners accommodation extends to two bedrooms, one ensuite, and a private sitting room.

The Sherwood is in a prime location within an elegant Victorian terrace, connecting the seafront with the theatres and conference centres. The beautiful Eastbourne promenade is just seconds away and Eastbourne town centre is only a short level walk away. The business has an enviable established trading history and benefits from a good level of passing trade, short stays and international visitors.

Eastbourne is undergoing a radical transformation with about £220m being invested right now. The Sherwood is situated very close to the Devonshire Park complex where about £55m is being invested in a new conference building, the refurbishment of two theatres & the Winter Garden, plus improved facilities for the International Tennis tournament. Closeby, on the Western Lawns a new iconic restaurant is being constructed at the Wish Tower, and within about five minutes' walk the town centre is being revamped with about 27 new shops, 7 new restaurants and a new cinema extension to the Arndale Centre nearing completion. The public realm is also being reinvigourated with about £8.5 of new street works.
