Spider's Light description

Wonderful sea views from most rooms
Perfectly placed to explore Hastings and all its surrounding attractions, Spider’s Light, as seen in Foyle’s War, is located in the heart of the old town and nestles in the east cliffs, with access to Hastings Country Park. With sea views from almost every room, the stunning scenery can be enjoyed both inside the cottage during the winter months, and outside whilst enjoying a glass of wine on the enclosed decked terrace. After a brisk walk along the seafront, nestle down on the comfortable sofa and batten down the hatches! This beautiful retreat is situated 50 yards from an excellent award winning gastro pub; perfect for evening dining. Spiders Light is situated just 300 yards from the beach and close to a lovely strip of shops and restaurants.
Spiders Light is rumoured to be named after a fisherman who once dwelt in this pretty, converted, end terrace holiday cottage. Spider used to put a light in his window which would guide the fishermen home, and wives would look out from the window to watch for incoming boats. Hastings still has the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe and you can also see the iconic black weather-boarded net huts. Look the other way and Hastings old town twinkles at night in front of you and behind is East Hill Country Park with walks from the doorstep. This provides access to 660 acres of woodland, heath and 5 miles of cliff-tops, also accessible via the steepest funicular railway in Britain. Visit the remains of Hastings Castle, discover Hastings’ smuggling past deep in the West Hill at St Clement’s Caves and explore the narrow streets and passageways known as twittens in the old town. Jerwood Gallery houses 20th and 21st century British art and is located in the Stade area - the old fishing quarter. If you have time don’t miss Battle Abbey and Camber Sands, offering miles of golden rolling sand dunes, or the National Trust properties in the area.
