Ahoy there, if you fancy a day out that is a little out of the ordinary; Mulberry Cottages may have just the celebration for you and all your little scallywags… The Hastings Pirate Day returns with greater aplomb this year and its organiser, Roger Crouch (very good pirate name in itself!) is keen on both Hastings locals and visitors to embrace the pirate lifestyle- we assume the brawling, drinking and stealing is entirely optional.
As organisers are expecting a big turn out this year, Hastings is trying to reclaim the lost record for the most ‘pirates’ in one place which was mercilessly plundered by Penzance last summer (Hastings have to get over 8734 pirate this year to steal the title back from Penzance).
Why not gather up your seafaring buccaneers, salty seadogs or scurvy wenches and head down to Hastings this July for the annual pirate day. Pirates are rewarded for their efforts with authentic pirate music, sword fighting demonstrations, pirate themed market and even the opportunity to witness a real pirate wedding! The world record attempt takes place on Hastings beach at 1pm on the 22nd July 2012- be there you scoundrel!
If you fancy making a weekend of it, or even a week and staying near to Hastings with all the family, then Mulberry Cottages can help to find a great base for the buccaneers. How about gathering the whole crew and heading over the Hare Farm Oast, a five star gold converted Oast House less than 20 minutes from Hastings and with enough room for all the family (plus more!).
Hare Farm Oast has personal, luxurious touches in every room and extensive grounds to explore, blending the beauty of the historic building with all the modern conveniences that makes this holiday home just a little bit special! Hare Farm Oast sleeps 12 and is available for a week over Pirate day from £2100 (just £25 per person per night).
