Exterior of the main building of PowderMills Hotel


As an AA Quality Inspected four-star hotel recommended with Merit, PowderMills is a family-run country house hotel with a unique gunpowder making history.

We are set in 85 acres of fabulous grounds, woodland and lakes for you to explore and gain all the mental and physical health benefits this brings.

Our estate adjoins the 1066 battlefields and Battle Abbey which is a medium challenge walk around 4km (walking map, a pamphlet of our history and wellies are provided) and we love to welcome friendly and well-behaved dogs.

We combine traditional values with the very best of service and care and have an array of amenities including a 2 AA Rosette restaurant with James Piloni at the helm, a Gunpowder brasserie style menu and comfy lounges to relax in.

If you're feeling more energetic, beaches at Hastings and Bexhill-on-Sea are just a 15-minute drive away. We believe this is why travellers choose us when visiting Battle or East Sussex and we look forward welcoming you very soon.

      The lead up to the wedding was probably the most stressful time for myself (bride). I was offered the wrong package 18 months ago (which didn’t exist) and did not know this until I contacted the... Read full review
