Claverton House

A superb country house set back from a busy road (although thanks to its double-glazing, the traffic can't be heard); Claverton House is a pearl in the Sussex countryside.

You can rest easy in a comfortable bed before enjoying a peaceful walk in its beautiful landscaped gardens. You can also (if you don't mind paying that little bit extra) indulge in a wonderful evening meal in its compact and bijou dining room. All-in-all, a gem of a B&B.

Battle

UK travel information

In the county of East Sussex located by the town Hastings is the famous village of Battle, the site of the Battle of Hastings, where the Duke of Normandy defeated King Harold in 1066. Naturally, Battle has a lot to offer tourists in the way of sites of interest to those interested in British History.


Battle


Battle Abbey, founded to commemorate the famous battle, is an amazing example of architecture with the “high altar”, which is reputedly the spot where Harold died.

Although little remains of the Abbey itself, the gateway is still a dominant feature on the landscape. A site of paleontological interest is Blackhorse Quarry, which has been the site of many fossil discoveries and is a must-see for anyone interested in Ecology or Natural History, as is the Hemingfold Meadow, where two meadows are located with nationally rare grassland species.
