It really is an amazing area, not only is it steeped in history dating back to 1066, Battle and the surrounding villages had been selected as a hidden gem and is an area that is really undiscovered, a real treat to visit!
On 14th October 1066, this area witnessed the most celebrated confrontation to take place on English soil – the Battle of Hastings, an event so significant it completely changed the course of English history.
Following the battle William the Conqueror built Battle Abbey – a penance ordered by the Pope for the loss of life incurred in the conflict. Today you can visit the famous English Heritage site 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield and experience the battle through dramatic film, audio tours, interactive exhibits and walking the battlefield.
We have some fabulous cottages in the 1066 area, from perfect little places snuggled into the beautiful countryside or truly gorgeous treats on the Sussex coast.
