A small modern seaside hotel in East Sussex, brilliantly located just across the road from the famous Camber Sands beach, the Gallivant is accommodating to kids of all ages, including babies. The interior is chic and seaside themed, with artisanal driftwood furniture, really putting you in the holiday mood. Little luxuries include flatscreen TVS, DVD players, fluffy robes, L'Occitane toiletries, and beach bags to take out for the day. The Beach Bistro restaurant features an extensive range of fresh, very local produce, and the staff clearly take pride in what they offer, from the cooking to the serving. The kids' menu includes some amazing ice cream. There are two nearby self-catering cottages associated with the Gallivant.


About a 5min drive from Rye, 20mins from Hastings and 90mins from London.
