Nearest pub

Located on the main street through Herstmonceux, The Brewer's Arms is a traditional village pub with cosy interiors and large grassy beer garden for summer months. Food is served daily and booking recommended.

Nearest beach

William the Conqueror landed here in 1066 before the historic Battle of Hastings. At the time the harbour was a bustling port but over time the coast has receded and now the local village is over a mile away from the beach. These days the shingle beach is pretty quiet with good views over the channel. Pay and display parking is available nearby and dogs are allowed although restrictions may apply in high season.
