the team

Space on Sea is the creation of three consultants with industry expertise in HR, Learning & Development and Brand & Marketing.

the space

Our home is Ruby's Rooms, the art-inspired seafront hotel in St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex.

Inside you’ll find individually-styled bedrooms, delicious local food and a bright, spacious room to work in with views looking out across the channel towards France.

Outside are all the benefits of a trip out of town- fresh air, a new environment, a sense of adventure.

When you visit, you have exclusive access to the whole building and garden, meaning you can relax and treat the place as a home from home.

We offer a range of support to suit your requirements, from concierge to consultancy.

the sea

Space on Sea is a balm for the frazzled mind of the modern professional.

A short train journey from the intensity of London life brings you to the open vista of the English seaside.

For the past two hundred years, town and city folk have been making the pilgrimage to the victorian seaside resort of St Leonards On Sea. Doctors have long prescribed a break by the sea as a panacea for a myriad of conditions. In recent years, scientists have catalogued the restorative effects of a coastal retreat.

The sound of the waves, the smell of the air, the sight of the blue sea beneath the expanse of the sky all speak to us on a deep instinctive level.

"There are all these cognitive and emotional benefits that we derive every time we spend time by water" said Wallace J. Nichols, a marine biologist and best-selling author of the Blue Mind. "Once you get into it, you realise that it's chemistry, it's biology, it's physiology. It's deeply personal but it's also strong science."

the team

Having all made the transition from city to coastal living; we understand the importance of balancing the excitement of a busy urban existence with the calm of life by the sea.

We know that time is your most valuable resource, so we've created a service that maximises every moment you spend with us. We offer you the luxury of distraction-free focus and at the same time provide a welcome injection of insight and inspiration.
