'I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
by John Masefield
Escape to the seaside this winter. Walk on deserted beaches, marvel at our incredible sunsets, indulge in a hot chocolate from one of Hastings Old Town independent cafes. Then kick off your boots, curl up on one of our sofa's in front of the fire, and enjoy a tipple from the honesty bar. Together with the friendliest and warmest hosting, a break at The Old Rectory could help ease those stresses, relieve your aching bones and sooth your soul.
