“The sand between your toes. Sky and beach as far as your eyes can see. Wonderful food made with love.” We couldn’t summarise the Gallivant in Rye, East Sussex, any better than that.
Earthy and natural, and in tune with beautiful surroundings, the Gallivant is a truly special place where even the most stressed out, uptight and tense person would find it impossible to not relax.
Guests are greeted with a welcome drink on arrival and are promised that, from the moment you get there to the moment you leave, everything will be taken care of for you.
“Lots of champagne and exquisite dinners of course, but also to-die-for breakfasts, brunches, drinks receptions and a resident pianist too,” says the website, making the Gallivant sound like the most idyllic place on earth.
The rooms are calm and cool, decorated with natural materials, yet oozing with luxury and comfort. Choose from a Snug Cabin, Baby Hampton, Garden or Large Hampton or Luxury Garden. There’s a brilliant array of places to stay.
Eating and drinking in the venue is always a celebration, even if it’s just a simple meal in the middle of the day or a casual dinner in the evening. The freshest and finest ingredients have been gathered and sourced from the local land and sea to ensure you have the best meal possible.
In the mini spa, you’ll achieve a whole new level of relaxation when you allow the expert therapists to work their magic on you through a range of special treatments.
And should you wish to leave this magical venue to explore further afield, there’s plenty of nature waiting just outside for you to immerse yourself in.
From inspirational classes and experiences such as daily yoga to mindful beach walks and coastal garden tours, there’s something for every taste and need.
