The Sea Croft & Us
First a little about us. In July 2015 we arrived after relinquishing jobs in teaching and Health, Safety and Environment to realise the dream of running our own business. Bonkers? Yes absolutely, our parents were shocked to say the least. Fortunately we had Georgina’s family background in hospitality to fall back on.
The Sea Croft was built around the turn of the 1900s, originally a gentlemen’s residence, it converted into a traditional seaside boarding house in the 1930s. During that time it had around 10 or 11 bedrooms. With the onset of the 70s and 80s the Sea Croft was further developed to give the en suite guest rooms we know and love today.
When we took over, wise hoteliers said its a bit like a “J curve”, starts off great but then gets a lot worse before it gets better. Boy were they right! We had a lot of holes to plug shall we say, often literally. The one thing keeping us going was you, you coming to stay with us and your needs. It was a great driving force and we are pleased to say that in 6 and half years here, the majority of rooms and bathrooms have been refurbished.

Breakfast Room & Lounge Bar
Our Breakfast room is very versatile and can sit up to 20 people for breakfast and the capacity can be increased for special occasions.
It also doubles as a meeting room for 12+ with a breakout area behind in the lounge. As the breakfast room and lounge bar are combined, this means we have the flexibility to also host parties, catering to your bespoke needs. This includes evening meal and party menus. The benefit is your event is private and can be combined with accommodation for an inclusive package. Please contact us direct for details. Examples include Christmas Parties, Wakes, Theme Nights, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christenings and small Wedding Parties looking for either a mini moon or intimate setting for their wedding breakfast.
We have a fully licensed bar and stock a small range of wines, beers and spirits. This means if you are looking to add a little romance to your ‘staycation’ we can source and supply fizz according to your budget and have it ready on ice in your room for when you arrive. If there is something you like, just tell us and we will do our best to get it for you.
Finally, (and this is our favourite) we offer Afternoon Teas and Prosecco Afternoon Teas that reflect the season with home bakes scones and cakes with lashings of Mr Bearman’s home made jam. This can be booked direct through our website.
