St.Benedict has been lovely restored by its present owners to its original Victorian layout.
There are well appointed guest bedrooms with double beds, authentic decoration and fittings. All rooms have their private bathroom with Victorian fittings.

The space

St.Benedict is a four storey villa dating to 1882, with a spacious garden and sea views over the English Channel. The house has been lovely restored by its present owners to its original Victorian layout. Fabrics and furnishings have been selected to reflect the style and taste of the 1880s, with great attention to period detail.
There are three well appointed guest bedrooms with comfortable double beds, authentic decoration and fittings, and with tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms have their private bathroom with Victorian fittings - roll top baths but no showers. The large drawing room is available for guests, with an open fire in the winter. Wifi is freely available. The full English breakfast is served in the dining room from silver serving dishes, in the manner of a Victorian country house. Evening meals are provided on request, as well as meals for parties, residential or not.
The large walled garden is available for guests to use. It has a summer house as well as two glasshouses, and even a small chapel. It is a very peaceful, quiet place for tranquil relaxation.
St.Benedict is a very unusual and special venue for a day or two at the coast or for a longer stay.

Guest access

A large drawing room is available for guests, with a piano and television. An upstairs sitting room is also available. Breakfast is in the spacious dining room. Guests may use the garden, where there is a pond and summer house, and numerous places to relax.

Interaction with guests

We socialise as much as guests wish to. Breakfast is served at whatever time guests request, and dinner can be provided on request.

Other things to note

We have decorated and furnished the house in an authentic Victorian style of the 1880-90s. Wallpapers, flooring and paintwork has been meticulously recreated. Bathrooms are also fully Victorian, with roll top baths and no showers. No period detail has been omitted.

It was a very interesting place to stay. Paul certainly has spent a long time collecting artifacts that compliment the beautiful house. The bed was very comfortable, the place was warm and the breakfast delightful. Thank you we both enjoyed the stay very much.

We had a really great fortnight at St Benedict B&B. Paul and Steve are endearing hosts; they help us in all our needs and they made our stay very comfortable. The house and gardens are incredible. St Benedict B&B is one of those places where one can breathe love for the Victorian style. At the same time, this entire environment together with the Sussex area around is perfect to wind down and travel to the XIX century (and before). The delightfully British Breakfast is served on the big table in the careful dining room, where guests can join and share their experiences. We loved those breakfasts where every morning we gathered with other guest and hosts, and talked about day plans and different subjects. We sincerely recommend St Benedict B&B to those who love Victorian interiors and are highly demanded in its little details. Thank you very much for everything and we hope to come back soon.

Séjour très agréable chez Paul et Steve. Nous avons été très bien accueillis, la maison est typique, pleine de charme et idéalement située à Hastings. Le petit-déjeuner était superbe.

We have opened our house for Bed and Breakfast guests for about 9 years now. I worked as a high school teacher until 2015, when I retired to concentrate on the B&B. The house is decorated partly from objects bought on travels around the world. Gardening is a favourite occupation, from which guests may benefit if they wish to use the large garden to relax and enjoy the peace and calm.
