1066 is the most famous date in British history. The Battle of Hastings shaped our culture like no other event before or since - and staying at Battle Abbey will remind you of the how and the why.
Hover on the spot where King Harold was slain by an arrow through the eye and imagine the drama as 6,000-7,000 foot soldiers of the Anglo Saxon army clustered around their king in the near impenetrable shield formation. So tight were they bunched that the dead had no room to fall, remaining upright where they stood.
At one point, a rumour circulated that Duke William of Normandy, who led the invading army, was dead. Far from it. He and his Norman army triumphed - and Battle Abbey was founded four years later to commemorate the victory and atone for the appalling loss of life.
South Lodge is the former gatehouse, which sleeps four and comes with its own fully enclosed garden. There is so much to see and experience here but nothing beats soaking up the atmosphere as the evening sun lights up the Great Gatehouse - one of the finest in England - quietly making the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
