The Seven Sisters make up a spectacular natural attraction, but there is a lot more to discover in the area. Visitors to the country park can enjoy hiking, cycling, canoeing, bird watching, and even fishing on the beach.

With Battle Abbey as its backdrop, the battlefield is a trip back in time. An onsite museum puts everything into context and there’s plenty to see and do here for visitors of all ages.

Beginning in May visitors can enjoy the Brighton Festival and Brighton Fringe Festival. Both attract performers and musical talent from around the world and are not to be missed.

The top floor suite was a treat. The owners were very responsive to questions and an earlier check in was arranged due to us travelling quite a distance and having to set off early.

It is very well equipped, the rooms are spacious, and it is ideal accommodation for a family. Our grandson, aged four, loves the games room and that was his first port of call! The property is well situated for many beach resorts and The Arundel Wetlands which is ideal for a day out. Chichester and Portsmouth are also nearby for shopaholics. Would thoroughly recommend The Millstream Hotel for fine dining. All in all a great break in superb accommodation!
