The South East England / Sussex region
The stunning scenery and breathtaking coastal walks are enough to entice you to visit these beautiful counties. However, there are several other reasons to holiday in Kent and Sussex; from shopping in the boutique and high street shops of Rye, Tenterden and Tunbridge Wells, to visiting the world famous castles and monuments of Tonbridge, Canterbury and Sevenoaks.
The Rye / East Guldeford area
Hastings is synonymous with 1066 when William the Conqueror and his Norman army defeated King Harold at Battle. William built an Abbey in the picturesque town of Battle to celebrate his conquest and left a legacy of Norman Churches and Castles throughout the South East.
Of particular note are the beautiful moated castles at Herstmonceaux and Bodiam. Other attractions in the area are the gorgeous gardens at Great Dixter and the intriguing follies built by Mad Jack Fuller at Brightling. Rye and Burwash are just two of the many enchanting towns and villages to explore in this part of Sussex that is so rich in history and natural charm.
