Explore the vintage clothes shop, antique shops and award-winning bakery, and buy the freshest fish you ever taste, having watched the fisherman land their catch. Delightful in winter or summer, have a picnic on the beach or cosy up in front of the woodburner after a bracing walk along the seafront or having visited St Clements Caves and discovered Hastings smuggling past. An ideal base, see Hastings Castle built by the Duke of Normandy. Take a trip to Battle and observe the very spot that changed the course of history forever in 1066. The surrounding area offers glorious countryside, National Trust properties, gardens and several vineyards where you can sample the local wines. Rye and Camber Sands are a short drive away. Good train connections to London for further sightseeing opportunities. Beach 150 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 25 yards.
