Escape to the Gallivant, Sussex’s Beach House hotel, an oasis opposite the dunes of Camber and the eight miles of uninterrupted golden sand beyond. Our New England style environment exudes charm and tranquility, offering great old fashioned service as standard and beautiful coastal inspired bedrooms. The perfect base to explore 1066 country, with its countless historic houses, gardens and villages, the dramatic wilderness of Dungeness and the ancient medieval Cinque Port of Rye all on our doorstep.

All our rooms feature large flat screen TV’s, DVD players (with house library), free Wi-Fi, telephones, books to read, beach bags for trips to the beach, tea/coffee, homemade goodies from the kitchen and room service. All have ensuite bathrooms, with L’Occitane beauty products, hair dryers and fluffy white bathrobes.

Our kitchen is headed up by the celebrated Bruce Wilson, formerly of the Michelin starred Greenhouse restaurant and most recently the head chef at the Tate Modern in central London. His cooking displays the love he has for using the best ingredients, always seasonal and whenever possible sourced from local suppliers that are as passionate about what they do as he is for putting smiles on customers faces.

A stay at the Gallivant is always a relaxing break from the stresses and strains of modern life. A place to unwind and enjoy the enormous skies, the deserted beaches and the cocooning warmth of our hotel, its great food and impeccable service.
