About this location

The East Sussex region

Holiday memories are not only about the sights, but the smells, sounds and tastes of a region.

Sussex has something for everyone. It's long been recognized that Hastings, In East Sussex enjoys some of the best weather in the country too, which probably accounts for it being one of the oldest holiday destinations.

The Sanctuary Retreat is perfectly located between the historic coastal towns of Rye, Battle and Hastings, but is ideally situated to access 360 degrees of fun, attractions, monuments, Nature reserves and historic places.

You don't need to restrict yourself to the land based activities either. If water sports are your thing then we have great beaches and water parks nearby with Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing and Stand Up Paddleboarding.

But the sky's the limit! Lydd airport, New Romney, is just a short drive away & offers pleasure flights and day trips to France.

'Buy Local' & 'Eat Local'

Hastings and the surrounding area also has an established and enviable reputation for some of the finest food produce in Sussex. It not only boasts the best meat produced from locally bred herds of beef and Romney Marsh Lamb, but also some of the freshest locally caught fish from one of the largest beach launched fishing fleets in Britain. The quality and local abundance of this fair, means you cannot get tastier produce. Many of the local restaurants take full advantage of this and you will find that both locals and visitors frequent their establishments. Fish & chips is traditional when visiting a seaside town, but by no means the only dish on the menu!

Hastings also has a 'Seafood & wine Festival'. This year the festival is on 14 Sep 2013 To 15 Sep 2013


The Fairlight cliffs, John's Seat, is a five minute walk away and Pett Level Beach is two minutes by car, (approx. 0.9 mile). Hastings Country Park is four minutes by car, (approx.1.6 miles) and boasts 600 acres of woodland, heathland and grassland, not to mention one of the highest and best viewpoints across the surrounding county. Stream Lane runs parallel with the perimeter of the property and forms part of the Saxon Shore Way trail from Rye to Hastings. Pett Level Road itself is part of the National Cycle route 2. An hourly bus service runs, 7 days a week; to the historic towns of both Hastings and Rye from right outside the Sanctuary gates and local taxis offer an inexpensive way of enjoying a night on the town, without the worry of having to drive. Other attractions close by include Winchelsea Beach, Rye old town, Camber Sands, Rye Nature Reserve, The Military Canal and Winchelsea Marsh, which is popular with bird watchers and walkers alike.

Hastings Old Town.

Hastings Old Town is steeped in history and is a must see for any visitor to Sussex. The fisherman's net huts and beach launched fishing fleet are the heart and soul of the the Old Town, from which centuries of history and tradition radiate out. The funicular railway at both the East and West Hill sites are some of the oldest working vertical railways in the country.

Chosen by Anthony Horowitz, for his crime drama 'Foyle's War', Hastings was the perfect setting for the popular WW2 drama, which captured the hearts of millions of viewers when it's series was aired by ITV.

Hastings has a long established history as a centre for the arts & attracts artists, musicians & actors from all fields. (Graham Norton, Tom Baker, Paul Merton and Eddie Izzard to name but a few.) The newly opened Jerwood Gallery is just one such centre, but the town is so rich in Bohemian talent that it is currently in a bid by Hastings & 1066 Country to be UK City of Culture 2017.

Hastings however, is more than just the old town and any trip to the region promises to be a voyage of discovery and of interest to all those with an inquisitive mind.
