The house's interior (which by the way wouldn't look out of place today on a chic boutique hotel website), with its timber beams ...

That's She! The Only She! Make an honest woman of her - quick!' was how Rudyard Kipling described Bateman's when he first saw it.

Step back in time at Michelham Priory. Most famous for the fact that it is the home of England's longest water-filled moat dating back to 1229, Michelham Priory in Hailsham was founded by Augustinian canons and has experienced a rocky history by way of the dissolution of the monasteries. These days, it's a lot calmer and makes for a lovely peaceful day out in the Sussex countryside. Inside the house you'll discover the history of this beautiful Tudor manor from medieval times up until its WW...
