This 18th century listed country house should be high on the interest radar for the history buffs. Skilfully developed to a hotel jammed with antiquities PowderMills was once the site for the production of the finest gunpowder in Europe. A fact not missed for its location - just outside the town of Battle and adjoining the infamous Battlefield of 1066. Also close is the Battle Abbey which is well worth a visit. Sweep into the impressive lakeside entrance to the property and breathe in the nature. In grounds of 150 acres or park, lakes ponds and woodland with wandering wild geese, swans, ducks and herons the ambience is set before you walk through the doors. The restaurant is classical and beautiful with bright floor to ceiling sash windows, traditional black and white marble floor and Romanesque sculptures bursting with flowers. Chef Callum O'Doherty accompanies all this with the finest classical cooking.
