When the weather is fine we hope you enjoy our garden. An established English country garden with fine countryside views. Helena helps us to keep our garden beautiful, she is an expert!

Perfect for a leisurely cream tea and perhaps a Sipsmiths Summer Cup cocktail! You can enjoy any mealtime in our lovely garden whenever you can brave the great British weather.

Explore 1066 Country

With a spectacular combination of coast and countryside that’s scattered with relics and ruins from the past, 1066 Country is the kind of place where you don’t just learn about history, you live it. Known world-wide for its heritage, 1066 Country offers visitors a rich historical experience.

The thriving market town of Battle is home to the very spot where King Harold fell during the fateful conflict.  The Edwardian seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea is the birthplace of British motor racing.  Europe’s largest beach-launched fishing fleet can be seen in Hastings and you can also enjoy the picturesque old town.

Pevensey was the landing point for both the Romans and the Normans. Rye is a maritime maze of Medieval and Georgian buildings.

If you want to get away from it all, explore 1066 Country’s beautiful countryside with its dramatic coastline, ancient forests, fairytale castles, rich and varied wildlife and cosy country pubs.
