Explore the glorious East Sussex countryside via a 5-mile drive through the lanes, across the unspoilt Pevensey Levels and across to Pevensey Bay, a haven for smugglers during the 18th century. The inspiring 31-mile 1066 Walk starts at Pevensey Castle through to Herstmonceux - don't miss the hands-on Science Observatory with over one hundered interactive exhibits and restored telescopes. The walk then continues through Battle and across to the medieval Cinque Port Town of Rye. Why not venture over to Drusillas, where you can be a zoo keeper for the day, or Knockhatch Adventure Park with its ski and snowboard centre. Visit Eastbourne with its excellent sunshine record and International Airshow in August, or Beachy Head and the South Downs National Park which are all within easy driving distance. Leisure pool at Hailsham, 1 mile, riding and golf available on-site. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 1/2 miles.
