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

The cottage was well equipped and tastefully decorated. A nice touch was having the basics of tea, coffee, milk, bread, fruit and cold drinks supplied. K Barnard - 26th August 2018
Dolphin Cottage , Hastings The house was very central in the old fishing village. Well stocked kitchen and a great welcome by the owner who gave us a fabulous welcome of goodies, wine, fresh fruit, baked goods, milk etc. Thank you. Mrs Janice Vermeulen - 30th July 2018
Dolphin Cottage was an absolute delight. Perfectly positioned adjacent to the East Cliff in Hastings and in the old town. The cottage is well equipped and many thanks to the owner for the welcome pack and for meeting us and showing us around. We and our boys (15 and 12) had a fantastic week exploring Hastings and visiting Battle, Brighton, Dover Castle, Rye, Camber and many other other places! The car parking was easy in the public car park 300 yards from the cottage and we never had trouble finding a space even though it was half term week and busy. The location came into its own in the evenings when we would walk out to find somewhere to eat - the restaurant at the pier is great. Would 100% recommend to families or couples looking for a comfortable cottage close to amenities. We hope to return! Mr Jeremy Howell - 4th June 2018
A beautiful and relaxing place to stay. Very high spec property and great attention to detail, I like all the local coastal themed art throughout the house - this made it a very special environment to stay in. Perfect location right in the heart of old Hastings opposite the fishing huts, with seafront, lovely art gallery, fisherman’s Museum, aquarium and funicular railway minutes from the front door, and interesting shops, cafes, restaurants, Hastings castle etc only 10-20minutes away. Perfect place to stay - we ran out of time for everything old Hastings has to offer. We’ll be back!” - 18th October 2017
Wonderful location, every thing you need and more within easy walking distance, lovely places to eat and loads of fresh fish. Very good standard property.
