The Langtons – Eastbourne

Nestled on the sea front, with an aristocratic history and elegantly refurbished from top to toe, discover luxury living, at award winning Eastbourne guest house, The Langtons.

Stylish seafront sanctuary
Dating back to 1898, this striking Victorian semi was built to house staff of the gentry visiting Eastbourne to ‘take the waters’. In later years, The Langtons was converted into a hotel, before being reimagined as The Ridings Hotel when it was merged with the neighbouring property.

Now returned to its original state, The Langtons serves as a successful bed and breakfast, lovingly renovated and updated by its current owners to afford luxury accommodation within a short walk of the bowling green, beach, pier and town centre.

Proudly set on Royal Parade, wrought iron railings enclose a neat patio seating area with potted plants to the front, perfect for enjoying morning coffee whilst admiring the sea. A checkerboard of steps leads to the front door.

A warm welcome
Step inside, into the veranda entrance, where wooden flooring extends underfoot. Refreshing shades of blue and white emulate the clear skies guests can hope to experience in the summer months at The Langtons, a cheerful palette upon arrival. With ample space for bistro tables and chairs, this veranda is the perfect place to read and relax and enjoy the summer sunshine and sea views.

Beyond, a broad, part-glazed period front door opens invitingly to the entrance hall, with high ceilings embellished by chandeliers. Ahead an archway frames the handsome staircase with its smartly striped carpet.

Rest and relax in the lounge to the right, where a large bay window offers sea views, whilst period features including picture rail, elegant cornicing, ceiling rose and an ornate fireplace add a touch of charming character. A door provides easy access out to the front patio. Carpeted underfoot, gilded wallpaper with a flash of bronze adds to the ambience. Throughout the home new carpets, upgraded bathrooms and designer wallpapers such as William Morris and Sanderson have been chosen to enhance the sense of high-quality luxury.

The African Room
Continue along the entrance hall to arrive at the African Room, the first of nine sumptuous bedrooms at The Langtons. Accessibly located on the ground floor, safari style wallpaper and accents of burnished orange, rich brown and cream create a cosy vibe. With sea views to the front, light also flows in through windows to the rear. Carpeted in cream with a chandelier in the high ceiling, another elegant fireplace adds character. This bedroom also has a television and wash basin with LED mirror above. Freshen up in the tiled ensuite, with WC, heated towel rail and shower.

The Rose Room
Steps lead down from the African bedroom into The Rose Room, dressed in spritely shades of cherry blossom pink and duck egg blue. Light and bright, courtesy of a side window, this contemporary-feel bedroom is furnished with flat screen television and also has access to its own ensuite with shower, heated towel radiator, WC and vanity unit wash basin with illuminated mirror.

Feast your eyes
Turning right from The Rose Room, follow an inner hallway leading along to the kitchen on the left. Furnished with a large Range cooker, gas hob and extractor, alongside a dishwasher and oven, there is ample space for freestanding American-style fridge-freezers. Light flows in through a large window to the side. Patterned splashback tiles have an earthy tone for an almost Mediterranean feel. Ample storage is available in the cabinetry with a 1.5 stainless steel sink also in situ. Tucked to the rear of the kitchen is a handy pantry, housing the new boiler with plumbing for a washing machine and a dryer.

From the inner hallway, turn left from the kitchen into the main conservatory dining room. Spacious, light and bright, double doors open to a rear patio should diners wish to enjoy tea or coffee on the rear patio.

Sleep tight
Retracing your steps, continue past the kitchen and take the stairs down to the lower ground floor, to discover the owners’ accommodation. Storage can be found in the understairs cupboard, whilst the main bedroom awaits directly ahead. Carpeted and cosy, soothing shades of blue and silver dress the feature wall, with spotlighting inset above and a fitted wardrobe providing storage. There is also a television point in this bedroom. An external door provides private access to the gravelled side garden which accesses both the front and rear gardens.

Turning left from the main bedroom, the hallway leads to the tastefully refurbished bathroom. Iridescent grey tiles extend underfoot, with baby blue shades to the walls. A tall cupboard provides plenty of storage, with a curved shower cubicle and fitted furniture accommodating the WC and wash basin, with LED mirror above. There is also a modern white heated towel radiator.

A guest bedroom, to the left of the bathroom, also serves as a study, with intimate low ceiling, bay window with fitted storage, built in wardrobe and television point.

At the end of the hallway, discover a further fitted cupboard, adding to the abundance of storage to be found at The Langtons.

The Red Room
Returning to the main entrance hall, from the ground floor, make your way up the handsome staircase to the first-floor landing, illuminated by sconce lighting, where ahead awaits The Red Room. Exuding grandeur, opulent velvety red wallpaper with an eye-catching pattern dresses the walls, with a striking period fireplace. Peacefully nestled to the rear of the home, this bedroom has a peaceful, regal feel, with the bonus of built-in storage and a television. Rest and refresh in the ensuite, with heated towel radiator, wash basin, WC and walk-in shower.

The Tartan Room

A cosy single bedroom nestled on the first floor, The Tartan Room is the ideal port in a storm, with elegant décor and expansive views out over the bowling green and sea.

The Quarterdeck Room
Making your way up to the second floor, a serene and secluded sanctuary, continue directly ahead from the landing to reach The Quarterdeck Room, a bountiful twin bedroom, peacefully nestled to the rear of the home. Embracing the nautical influence of the Eastbourne seafront, sun-bleached driftwood effect wallpaper combines with seashell inspired light fittings to capture the whimsy of the shore. With a sloping ceiling and original Victorian fireplace, this bedroom emanates cosy comfort, with a built-in wardrobe, television, views out over the pretty houses to the rear and its own ensuite, featuring bath containing overhead shower, wash basin, heated towel radiator, LED mirror and WC.

All At Sea
A short flight of stairs leads to an upper landing, where you will discover The Langtons’ superior, king size bedroom, All At Sea. Enjoying penthouse vistas over the sea shore, bowling green and channel, the sky blue and cream shades of décor marry mellifluously with the seaside surroundings. With ample room for a sofa, this bedroom is currently furnished with a flat screen television. Guests can refresh in the spotlit, shower room ensuite, with wash basin, mirror and WC, with heated towel radiator in the main bedroom.

The Jasmine Room
