The Roost is simply stunning with the most amazing views of Battle Abbey. This luxury accommodation is perfect for families or friends looking to enjoy the delights that Battle has to offer.

In a fabulous location close to all amenities and in 1066 country, you are surrounded by beautiful walks, and only a short distance from a mainline train station with direct links to London. The Roost really is the ultimate getaway for any time of year.

As you enter the property you step into a beautifully furnished open plan kitchen/dining room. Create a delicious meal in the newly fitted kitchen and enjoy holiday meals whilst you enjoy each other's company around the dining-table and plan tomorrow's adventures. Double doors open to a sun-trap balcony, a nice spot for a morning coffee or al fresco dining.

A turning staircase leads you to the upper landing where there is a modern family-bathroom with shower above. To the front of the apartment is the main bedroom with views of the Abbey and a gorgeous king-size double bed dressed in luxury linens for that comfortable night's sleep.

The second bedroom is full of character with a pitched ceiling, exposed beams and has two quality single beds which provides a delightful room for children to sleep in.

Babes in arms under six months old are welcome at The Roost.

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 battlegrounds 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.
