Set deep in history, where the Sussex Weald meets the sea, lie the ancient settlements and rich landscapes of 1066 Country.

Open skies and broad horizons inspire the imagination. If you are passionate about the countryside, sea, history and culture then you’ll find everything you need in this part of the south east which stretches from Pevensey to Rye and Camber Sands along the coast and takes in the historic castle towns of Herstmonceux Battle and Bodiam a few miles inland.

Arts and culture – both traditional and contemporary – thrive in this area of creativity and craftmanship, with a host of events, parades, carnivals and fetes to fill up your weekend and make your stay one to remember.
