This East Sussex village lies on the banks of the River Rother and is the setting for one of the country’s most romantic castles, Bodiam, set in the middle of a lake-like moat.

It was erected in the 14th century by Sir Edward Dalyngruge to thwart a potential French invasion during the Hundred Years War.

It was restored by Lord Curzon and handed over to the National Trust in 1925.
