Treat yourself and your loved one to a memorable break at The Abbey Nest, a beautifully furnished apartment with stunning views of Battle Abbey. Located in the heart of Battle (1066 country) you are close to all amenities and surrounded by beautiful walks, and only a short distance from a mainline train station with direct links to London.

After exploring the Sussex countryside and coast, you will love coming back to The Abbey Nest which has been renovated to an exceptional standard throughout, combining contemporary living with many original features including sash windows and characterful beams.

The sitting/dining-room has a gorgeous view of Battle Abbey. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa whilst you read a book or watch a film.

The small but perfectly formed bespoke kitchen has all you need to cook up a holiday feast and includes a Krups coffee machine.

After a busy day exploring, freshen up in the modern shower-room before retiring upstairs where there is a beautiful turning staircase which opens into a large opulent main bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and a double bed dressed in luxury linens for that comfortable night's sleep.

If family or friends wish to join you in Battle, they can book The Roost (4912) which is next door and sleeps four.

Battle town is filled with a plethora of independent shops and businesses including local butchers, organic produce shops, boutique shops, tea-rooms, takeaways and several pubs and restaurants.

Take a wander around the Market Square or visit the ruins and battleground of Battle Abbey. In the centre of the roundabout is a striking sculpture by Guy Portelli, depicting a Norman soldier on horseback, the sculpture was installed in 2016 to commemorate the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings.

At the northern end of the High Street is the Almonry, originally built in 1090, which houses the Battle Museum of local history. Here you'll find the world's oldest Guy Fawkes, or at least his head which is made of pear wood and his silk cloak. Thought to be more than 200 years old, he is still in active service and leads the Battel Bonfire Boyes on their fiery procession through the town each November.

Just outside the town, pathways and cycle tracks etch the landscape, taking you to places as peaceful as anywhere in southern England.

Take a visit to Battle Great Wood, over 200 acres of mainly coniferous woodland and heath with meandering streams and wide, well-managed paths perfect for walking and cycling. These woodlands are home to deer, badgers, birds such as the nightjar, tree pipit and crossbills, and many common butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies. In spring you'll find carpets of bluebells and wood anemones, and in autumn the forest floor hosts weird and wonderful fungi.

The 1066 Country Walk runs through the wood, marking the path William the Conqueror took with his invading army of Norman troops after landing at Pevensey. It continues to Winchelsea and Rye, spanning 31 miles in total.

Enjoy a day at the ancient seaside town of Hastings and explore the underground caverns and unknown tunnels for a smugglers adventure or take in a show at one of the theatres or sample some Sussex produce in one of the restaurants.

Or visit the seaside resort of Eastbourne with its Victorian pier, Italian gardens or the golden beach and sand dunes at Camber Sands.

Other places to visit include Bodiam Castle, Pevensey Castle, Rye Castle Museum, Sissinghurst Castle, Herstmonceux Castle and Science Centre, Bewl Water, Bedgebury Forest, Great Dixter House and Gardens, Glyndebourne Opera House, Bodiam River Boats, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Rudyard Kipling's House, Dungeness, Winchelsea Beach or the Kent and Sussex Railway to name just a few!
