This rustic fisherman's cottage was built in 1850 and sits opposite the iconic Fishing Net Huts and Fish Market which services the unique inshore fishing fleet synonymous with Hastings.  Dolphin Cottage has been restored with great care and offers modern family accommodation over three floors.  The property is seashore themed and has local Sussex artwork displayed on the pale blue walls, including two fishing net installations.  The property is spread over three floors with a spacious and bright dining and kitchen area on the ground floor, opening into an enchanting courtyard.  The cosy sitting room is on the first floor with many of fixtures and fittings having been hand crafted using reclaimed wood, which all adds to the drama of this cottage.  The shingle beach is less than 300 yards across the road and this area of Hastings sea front is vibrant and colourful with local restaurants and pubs right on your doorstep.  The funicular railway to Hastings Country Park is a few steps along the road as is the Jerwood Gallery exhibiting contemporary British art.  The fashionable Old Town is full of retro shops and cafes and don't miss Judge's Bakery, famous for its' bread and pastries.  Shop: 0.5 yards   Pub:  0.3 yards  Coast: 0.1 yards
