Shooting Box Tower, Battle

Approached down a secluded country lane through beautiful woodland with wild anemones and bluebells - this imposing tower, adjoining the owners' farmhouse - originally the Shooting Lodge for the Ashburnham Estate, is in the most wonderful location. The views from the top of the tower are incredible - not only over the fields and woodlands but to Hastings and beyond. Walk to nearby Eatenden Wood and observe some unique birds in the hedgerows. For medieval history just a short drive to nearby Battle will take you right into the heart of 1066 country. Experience a real taste of country life in the sympathetically renovated splendour of this unique property. Shop: 1.5 miles Pub: 1.5 miles Coast: 9 miles

Named after the historic Battle of Hastings, this pretty town is home to many ancient sites of interest and notable Georgian buildings. Much of the battlefield itself is now part of the Battle Abbey country park, the visitor centre and atmospheric abbey ruins are a great start to the tour. Also on site are a dairy, underground ice house and Victorian walled garden. Lots of fun events and re-enactments through the year including the Battle Marbles Matches and the Summer Fayre.

The Observatory Science Centre is a great family day out; there is a range of astronomical exhibitions, fun interactive experiments and demonstrations. The Museum of Local History is also worth a visit, with a copy of the Bayeux Tapestry on display and many Roman artefacts. The surrounding Almonry Gardens are nice for a quiet stroll, and the town itself has a variety of independent shops, art galleries as well as the weekly country market. Ideally positioned for exploring both the countryside and coast, the newly renovated pier at Hastings and the bustling resort of Bexhill on Sea are ideal for a day trip to the seaside.
