In this beautiful Regency house, witness stunning sea-views, and look out over the rooftops of the historic Old Town of Hastings.

The house is situated in what was once a rope walk, and was reputedly built as part of a larger tenancy project for the Duke of Wellington's naval officers as they retired from service. Wellington was stationed nearby with his brigade (in 1806) and lived in the High Street.

Hastings itself has a strong arts community. The newly-built, modern Jerwood Gallery is only a 4-5 minutes walk away, in The Stade area. The remains of the first castle to be built by William the Conqueror can also be visited on foot.

We had a Nice stay in Hastings. Everything was as expected. A Nice house in a quiet neighboring area. The FILO pub, bakery, grocery and a lot of restaurants only a few minutes walk away. I can recommend both Hastings and this house.

We really enjoyed our week in Wellesley House. We were two families with babies and found the property to be excellent. Very clean, very large and very nicely decorated, it was a great base for us to spend time in Hastings and the surrounding areas...More
