Why Sussex is a good cottage holiday destination

Places to visit during a Sussex cottage holiday
One little known fact about Sussex is that there are a startling number of castles throughout the region, making Sussex extremely rich in English heritage. The castles in East Sussex include Bodiam Castle, a medieval castle complete with moat and gatehouse, Hastings castle, a ruin which dates back to circa 1066, known to be the first Norman castle built in England and Pevensey Castle, another historic Norman castle. There is also Lewes Castle which dates back nearly 1000 years and is located near the historic Anne of Cleves’ House in Lewes. The ancient Arundel castle is located in West Sussex near Arundel and is a well preserved castle which is home to the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk.
Self-catering holidays in Brighton and Chichester, Sussex
Brighton is a smart and trendy large seaside town that is wonderful for anyone looking for lively seaside holidays with bright lights. Chichester is genteel and charming, perhaps more suited to holidaymakers who prefer a quiet seaside break. In West Sussex, Brighton is known for its attractive seafront, interesting shops and the Royal Pavilion, an unusual looking oriental palace originally built for King George IV. The city of Chichester has a historic cathedral, many attractive historic buildings and an attractive harbour area. Not far from Chichester is Fishbourne Roman Palace, a historic roman dwelling with many interesting mosaics. If you enjoy visiting historic buildings there are a great number for you to see whilst on a self catering holiday in Sussex.
If you want to spend some time relaxing on a sandy beach then head for Camber Sands, a long stretch of sandy beach with sand dunes awaits you. There are pine lodges to rent for holidays nearby.
Again, another well kept secret about Sussex is that there are a number of vineyards that you can visit and an English Wine centre. Whether you are looking for a cottage in the country or a cottage by the sea, Sussex really does have it all.
