About Tim Fuller

Myself and family live locally at Pevensey Bay and have lived in the area all our lives. We love the variety that Eastbourne and surrounding areas offer from the stunning coast to the tranquillity of the countryside just a few miles inland. We love the outdoors and cycle a lot,either training for triathlons or taking it easy with our 2 daughters. Wendy our eldest, came up with the name for the cottage and Sophie, her sister, went along with the idea almost completely without jealousy! Having 2 young children has allowed us to sample many (if not all!) of the family attractions and activities within our area.

Tim Fuller purchased this house in 2012

Why Tim Fuller chose Eastbourne

We bought Wendy House in September 2012 with the sole purpose of offering a holiday let. My wife used to work in Wharf Road many years ago and felt it would offer a very attraction location. It is in the heart of Eastbourne although you wouldn't know it. The feedback we receive generally always comments on the central but quiet location. The closeness of Eastbourne Station means arrival on foot is so easy and also offers unrivalled convenience for days out. Wendy House really does offer a year round base for exploring the delights of Eastbourne and surrounding areas.

Our main aim is to ensure that we offer a pleasurable and comfortable stay. We feel that our local knowledge and availability if needed will provide you with the assurance that you will get the very most from your holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great location"-

A great little house, well equipped and perfectly clean. Quiet little cul de sac, but only a minutes walk from Eastbourne station, 2 minutes from the town centre or less than 10 to the pier and seafront. Loads of places to eat and drink within easy walking distance (no driving!!).

"Lovely house, great location and very well equipped."-

Wendy House is in a great central location a short walk from the town centre and beach. I stayed there with my mum and 19 month old twins and we all had a great time. Gildredge Park is lovely and a short walk away. Tim was very helpful with our booking and Jan the housekeeper was there to greet us and had left some provisions in the fridge. We would love to come back and stay again.

"Great cottage in a perfect location!"-

We stayed with another couple for 3 nights and it was just the right size for all of us. The housekeeper met us on our arrival and gave us information on the cottage and location, she had even left some basic supplies. The cottage is in the perfect location, tucked away from the main streets but only 10 minutes walk to the seafront. We will definitely use Wendy house again in the future.

Lovely Cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay in this charming cottage. It’s been tastefully decorated in a seaside theme and I loved the use of driftwood and little ornaments. The location is fantastic with everything close at hand and even though it’s a central location it’s very quiet. I’d highly recommend Wendy House and will definitely stay again.

Cosy, convenient and thoughtfully equipped, a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Wendy House for the Eastbourne cycling festival. Everything we wanted to do was within easy walking distance. The street is quiet and yet centrally located. The Wendy House itself is beautifully decorated and a very relaxing place to stay. Thank you Tim!

A lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Wendy House was very enjoyable. The property was beautifully decorated and well equipped. As well as providing tea and coffee supplies there was even a pint of milk waiting for us in the fridge on arrival so we could have a cup of tea as soon as we'd unpacked the car.

There is a garage attached to the cottage, which can fit a small to medium sized vehicle, so it saved the expense and hassle of trying to find on-street parking.

The cottage is located down a quiet side street but is only a 2 minute walk from Eastbourne train station, the main shopping facilities and places to eat. The seafront is only a 15-20 minute walk from the cottage so we hardly used our car during our stay.

The owner, Tim, was very friendly and helpful and we would not hesitate to recommend Tim and his property to friends and family.

Grate base to explore Sussex

  • 5 of 5

We had my parents visit from Spain and needed a base to explore the Sussex coast.

Conveniently located neat transport (rail and the 12X buses), the Wendy house exceeded our expectations. Very well fitted and equipped, we had a lovely stay

Can't go wrong here!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it was just like home from home. Welcomed by a lovely notice board on the kitchen and there was even a pint of milk in the fridge. I cooked dinner the first evening and there was everything you needed to cook a dinner. Met the neighbours who were absolutely lovely. Will definitely be back and most certainly recommend. X

Unlike any Wendy House I have been in!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for me to stay as I was working away from home and it was like a home from home, with the owners welcoming me, to sorting out all my needs like linen, heating and sorting out any problems or questions about the area . The house was clean and well maintained but I only wish the weather had been as sunny as the house was!

The location and parking was perfect as I could walk to shops without using the car however as my job started early in the morning I never used the garage provided.

Would love to return when the sun shines and thanks Tim and family for making my months stay a relaxation after a hard days work.

Eastbourne has so much to offer that it impossible to list all the highlights! The stretch of coastline along Eastbourne's shores is known as the Sunshine Coast and for a very good reason. It has one of the highest rates of sunshine in the UK. Eastbourne takes advantage of this fact by hosting many prestigious events in the summer months. Devonshire Park is once again home to the Aegon International tennis week from 18th to 25nd June. Expect big names as usual. Then,from 11th-14th August Eastbourne opens its skies and seafront to Airbourne International Airshow, the Internationally renowned free air display. This is a fantastic weekend and fun for all the family.

Throughout the year Eastbourne's theatres play host to a variety of shows and performers. There is guaranteed to be something to interest you and this year. There are myriad of cafe's and restaurants to cater for every taste including vegetarian and vegan. There are plenty of shopping opportunities with frequent street markets offering food and gifts and many attractions to keep everyone busy during their stay in Eastbourne.

Children will enjoy the playparks Eastbourne has on the seafront, a trip to the marvellous Drusillas Zoo Park or a ride on the Dotto train. There is tennis, crazy golf and a wide safe seafront for cycling or roller blading.

Every day can offer a new experience whatever your pace of life and we hope we can help you make the most of your stay in Eastbourne.

East Sussex offers the holiday maker a plethora of opportunities to explore, indulge, be active or just plain relax.

For the younger members of your family, there are the lovely beaches, fun parks and safe cycle routes to get their hearts pumping. Visit the castles at Pevensey and Bodiam or Historic houses such as Batemans. There really is something to suit everyone.
