The Gallivant

Sandcastles, buckets and spades, and a crisp English cuvée; this is the grown-up version of the Great British summer holiday. Just across the way from Camber Sands, The Gallivant is a motel conversion turned sophisticated seaside stay: it's like a blend of Hampton's cool and quirky British seaside. The superb award-winning restaurant is a destination in its own right. Fresh catches are cooked to perfection, and 90 per cent of ingredients are sourced within 10 miles of the hotel.

Nestled close to the medieval town of Rye, on the scenic East Sussex coast, just steps from Camber Sands
