Looking down majestically over the town is Battle Abbey, built as a penance to the many killed during the Norman invasion and reputed to be where King Harold fell in 1066.

Whatever your choice this superb cottage will be just the right place to stay.

About the location
Hastings 6 miles; Bexhill-on-Sea 7.5 miles; Eastbourne 15 miles.
Battle is a quaint town in East Sussex situated inland and about 6 miles from the more vibrant sister, seaside town of Hastings. Both are famous for their involvement with the battle between William the Conqueror and King Harold in 1066 which changed the course of English history forever. With its narrow alleys, Battle prides itself on remaining a historic landmark, although it is now a bustling and busy place that welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world each year. Visitors come to indulge in the delights that tea rooms such as Mrs Burton's can offer with high tea being served on tall cake stands in a quintessential English parlour dating back to the 16th century. They can browse around charming shops selling local produce and hand-made goods, local butchers and organic vegetable stores where cheeses and wines made only a few miles away are on sale. But, standing proud over this lovely town so full of history, is Battle Abbey. Majestic in its appearance and, although with part of it's buildings now laying in ruins, it still attracts visitors who explore its battlegrounds and Abbey ruins.On the green, events and exhibitions take place throughout the year from costumed marble matches to medieval fayres and scarecrow competitions. Only a short drive away Hastings offers visitors the chance to enjoy a day by the sea, swimming or sailing, fishing or wind-surfing. Or why not dine alfresco at one of the numerous restaurants in the old town with its view over Hastings Castle on the hill, before taking in a show or a play at one of the theatres close by? Separated by only a few miles, but joined by history, Hastings and Battle are towns that offer excitement and enjoyment at any time of year.
Note: Cot bed suitable for a child up to 4 years of age.
