The East Sussex region

1066 country, the corner of East Sussex where a monumental battle famously reshaped the nation, boasts a classically beautiful English landscape infused with an epic sense of history.

A landscape of moated castles, steam railways, picturesque seaside towns and steep-cobbled streets, this is 1066 country. Scenes overlayed through the passing centuries that today survive in composite to create the archetypal image of England. An England which, hundreds of years ago, had its fate decided here in this beautiful coastal pocket of East Sussex, where an Norman invasion force successfully landed on these shores and won a famous victory, forging a new nation and forever changed the course of this countries history.

In 1066 Country you're surrounded by countryside and coastal reaches so abundant with the historical evidence of the past thousand years, it's impossible to imagine how this country may have evolved had Harold Godwinson, later to become Harold II, the last Anglo-Saxon king, won the battle of Hastings on the 14 October 1066, a date since etched into the national consciousness. As it was, the day and the crown belonged to William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy.

Thankfully 1066 country today, ringing with the history of events born from perceived betrayals and false promises, never disappoints its guests. 1066 country offers its visitors a countless array of famous historical sites and crumbling fairytale ruins of ancient castles. Immaculate country houses set in magnificent gardens are scattered across a backdrop of rolling fields dotted with sheep and woodlands intersected with steep-banked lanes that weave their way through tiny hamlets and charming villages. To the south lies the region's coast, encompassing the towns of Bexhill, Hastings and England's prettiest town, Rye, cradled to the west by the chalky bolster of the South Downs. This is soon to become a national park and bracing walks along gorse-lined ridges provide sweeping sea views to rival those of the raptors riding lazy circles in the thermals above.

It's easy to lose hours roaming around the many picturesque 1066 country towns such as Rye. However, when the hill climbing finally takes its toll the perfect antidote lies just a couple of miles away to the edge of 1066 country at the majestic Camber Sands. Here the cobbles and shingle that define the beaches of the south-east coast finally give way to a beautiful broad tract of unspoilt sandy beach and sheltering dunes.

Beguiling as the 1066 country coast may be, neither the region's beauty or its history diminishes as you journey inland. While Rye may have had its adopted son in Henry James, one of 1066 country's most passionately patriotic literary exponents also made his home in the countryside of this special part of East Sussex, where he composed this most appropriate piece of poetry:

England's on the anvil – hear the hammers ring –

Clanging from the Severn to the Tyne!

Never was a blacksmith like our Norman King,

England's being hammered, hammered, hammered into line

So goes the first verse of The Anvil, a poem in praise of the forging of a unified English nation under William The Conqueror, written by an author born nearly 800 years later, in 1865 – Rudyard Kipling. His family home of Bateman's, situated here in 1066 country, just outside the delightful village of Burwash, is now owned by the National Trust and remains the essence of the pastoral idyll safely hidden at the heart of the Empire.

The perfect solution to enjoying the countryside at the heart of 1066 country, in a manner that Kipling would surely have approved, is a journey on the Kent and Sussex Steam Railway. As the country's finest example of a light rural railway, you can even dine during your journey in restored Pullman Cars, drinking in the view through the puff of steam as the line travels through the unspoilt Rother Valley to terminate at Bodiam, the location of one of England's famous 'fairytale' castles. Bodiam Castle, with its beautifully preserved and spectacularly turreted quadrangular walls, built in 1385 rising from it's broad moat, provides an image that has become the personification of an English medieval castle.

Another spectacular 1066 country moated castle can be found at Herstmonceux, situated north west of Hastings. Constructed in 1441, Herstmonceux Castle became the temporary home to the Royal Greenwich Observatory shortly after the Second World War in a bid to avoid London's increasing light pollution. The observatory moved again, this time to Cambridge in 1990, yet the legacy of its six working telescopes survives, with three still open for guided evening observations.

With the telescope such as the one housed at Herstmonceux, you wonder if King Harold would have been able to see what was in store for this island, long before that fateful arrow struck its mortal blow. But it is impossible to imagine how different 1066 Country would have been, had the tables been so easily turned on that monumental day.

One thing, however, that would doubtless have remained the same is the timeless beauty of the 1066 country landscape – but whether 1066 country would still contain one of its most recent Gallic-influenced attractions, the profusion of small award wining vineyards that have sprung up in recent years among the hop fields, we can only guess.

So follow in the footsteps of the Conqueror and book your stay at Tauranga & visit 1066 Country

Camber

There are beaches that spread out before you as you approach them, laying their features out like a market stallholder. There are beaches that tempt from a distance, coming into focus as you descend from the hills. And there are beaches that hide their majestic landscapes behind high dunes, rewarding you at the last minute with surprising views; bright blue sea, glorious blue sky and golden sand. Such a beach is Camber Sands, which withholds its beauty until the last second, its an awesome spectacle.

The local area has something to offer everyone. With golf, fishing, and a variety of watersports just moments away those looking for an activity holiday are well provided for. There are also cycle routes and many good walks from the Tauranga. More information is provided in the cottage.

If you are a bird watcher or wildlife enthusiast you will not be disappointed! Rye harbour nature reserve is on the doorstep and there is an abundance of wildlife in the area. The surrounding marshes are a designated SSSI [site of special scientific interest] and there are a number of protected species that inhabit the marshes including water voles and the great crested newt.

If history is your interest there is enough to occupy you during your stay. With many fine castles and houses in both East Sussex and Kent to visit. Rye is just 3.5 miles away and is England's most beautiful towns with its cobbled streets and ancient buildings.

Tauranga is in a lovely location, sandwiched between one of the UKs finest beaches just 400 metres away to the rear and with protected marsh land to the front, you will be assured of no shortage of things to see and do. When you're hungry, there's something for everyone from fish and chips to some great local pubs and restaurants in walking distance and also in Rye, Winchelsea, Tenterden to name just a few. If you're cooking yourself, there's amazing local produce including fresh fish straight off the Rye fishing boats, award-winning wine and Romney Marsh lamb.

Camber Sands beach was voted number 9 of the 100 Best Beaches in the World by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. The beach is miles of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes. Easily accessible from London(1.5 hours drive) and close to Dover and Ashford International Station for international links. The unspoilt beauty of the beach as well as its sheer size have made it a popular location for many. The clean and shallow pools left at low tide makes it ideal for children.

The village of Camber has a couple of pubs including The Gallivants restaurant, bar and grill offering a range of delicious dishes made from local, free range and organic ingredients. The Green Owl also guests a further dining option within a few minutes stroll of the house and is dog frirendly. The delightful, picturesque, medieval town of Rye (less than 4 miles from Camber) offers an excellent selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Alternatively buy and barbecue your own fresh seafood! There are three restaurants in walking distance of the cottage

The cottage has many nearby attractions to visit, offering something for all ages. Being on the borders with Kent opens up many attractions to visit there too. Otherwise known as The Garden of England, Kent, like Sussex is steeped in history and Tauranga has tourist information for both counties.

“Well equipped, tastefully decorated, cosy accommodation”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2015

Very cosy accommodation for a February break for 3 generations plus pooch. Close to the amazing beach, a scattering of pubs and restaurants and some convenience stores so we managed a week car free but there are taxi companies and bus services to Rye and Hastings. Very speedy service from the property managers when a light blew. Hearty meals served in the local pub - very attentive staff and doggy/child friendly..would definitely stay again.

Thank you for the lovely review of your stay. We moved down to Camber to be able to offer all our guests a personal service and to be on hand for any issues that may crop up. We look forward to you returning soon. Sophie & Richard

“A perfect house near the beach”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2012

Tauranga lies in a new part (2011) of the town Camber. The town has not much to offer, but the beach does! The weather was perfect, so we (family with two children 1,5 and 4 years) went to te beach a lot. It is a fine combination of English country and the beach. When driving from one location to another, use the scenic routes and not the motorways, it is a lot more fun.
