Tackleway, Hastings TN34 3BU, UK


Beaming with attractive features, inside and out, this spacious end of terraced three/four bedroom period home located on a sought after road offers ‘Old Town’ living split over three floors; to include an open-plan entertaining garden floor with access to a south-westerly aspect garden and a garden office at the bottom.


On the boundary where Old Hastings abuts the gorse covered slopes of East Hill Country Park providing several miles of undulating rural paths, shaded glens and magnificent views over many miles of the English Channel to the continent. Local shops, amenities, fishing beach and seafront promenades are within a short walk. Comprehensive Hastings town centre facilities, mainline station and university are approximately half a mile away. Known for having one of the largest beach-based fishing fleets in England, the Hastings Old Town is also close to the award winning renovated pier, Priory Meadow shopping centre and St Leonards on Sea. The busy town also offers easy access to surrounding villages and towns, most popular being Battle, Winchelsea and Rye.

The property itself sits towards the middle of Tackleway giving twitten access to All Saints Street and down to the seafront. No.42 is slightly sat back from the rest of the terrace, allowing wonderful views at the rear.


Surrounded in nautical stories of The Sunbeam Yatch (Voyage in the Sunbeam), this three storey 3/4 bedroom end of terrace residence is an exemplary example of a period home in the Old Town of Hastings. The views from each floor, either to the garden or over the Hastings Old Town are to be admired.
