About this location
The East Sussex region
East Sussex is part of the ancient kingdom of the South Saxons who established themselves during the 5th Century AD after the departure of the Romans. The area had been populated for many thousands of years before then. There is an abundance of archaeological remains, especially in the upland areas. The area's position on the coast has also meant that there were a number of invaders, those of which included the Romans and later the Normans.
From a geological point of view East Sussex is part of the southern anticline of the Weald. The South Downs, a range of moderate chalk hills which run across the southern part of the county from west to east and which are mirrored in Kent by the North Downs. To the north lie parallel valleys and ridges, the highest of which is the Weald itself.
Over a thousand years of history have formed the county of East Sussex with its green fields having been the sites of many great battles. East Sussex is studded with castles. Hastings Castle was built in 1066 straight after the invasion on top of the cliff that now overlooks Hastings Old Town. It was rebuilt in stone in 1070 as the first permanent Norman castle in the country. Pevensey Castle is four miles north-east of Eastbourne. William the Conqueror seized the Roman fort at Pevensey after beating the English at the Battle of Hastings. Bodium Castle north of Hastings, was built in the 14th century, one of the few examples of a castle built for a private citizen. Incapable of being defended against cannon fire, it surrendered when attacked. The Parliamentarians were ordered to dismantle it, so it remained a ruin until partially restored in the 19th century. In 1917 Lord Curzon purchased and restored the castle. It is now owned by the National Trust.
Earlier industries have included fishing, iron-making, and the wool trade, all of which have since fell into decline. Today, with the main towns being popular seaside resorts, East Sussex's main industry is the tourist trade.
There are wide open spaces from the beaches and cliff tops of the coast to the chalk hills and meadows of the South Downs. There are narrow cobbled alleyways and elegant Regency squares, along with medieval cottages and fairytale castles. The mixture of glorious gardens, picturesque old villages, stylish bars and restaurants and fun nightlife are what makes East Sussex such a special place. It is here where you can relive a Norman battle, visit an Indian-style royal palace, go llama trekking, find a 69m long chalk man on a hillside and dine on a 1920's Golden Arrow steam train, and all in the space of a day.
East Sussex is a fascinating mix of sleek city pleasures, laid-back beach life and unspoilt countryside. It is historic, wild and sophisticated, exotic and traditional, all at the same time.
Camber Sands beach is a two-and-a-half mile stretch of golden sands enclosed by picturesque dunes only two hour's drive from central London. It is being newly rediscovered as a UK holiday destination of choice and was voted number 9 of the 100 Best Beaches in the World by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. The unspoilt beauty of the beach as well as its sheer size have made it a popular location for fashion photo shoots and films including doubling as the Sahara Desert in a 'Carry On' film and as the Dunkirk evacuation beaches in several war epics. At low tide the sea can be as much as half a mile from the dunes which makes it a popular location for horse-riding and kite-buggying. The clean and shallow water makes it ideal for children.
With constant winds coming straight off the sea and from the vast expanse of the Romney Marshes, Camber has become a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts whilst the west winds and shallow sea make it a great place for kite-surfing. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, waterski-ing, wakeboarding and jet ski-ing are all available locally either from the beach or on a large coastal lake just outside Camber. There is also sailing on the river Rother 3 miles from Camber.
For swimming, the beach boasts a yellow flag award from the MCS, the highest UK award for water quality standards. Golf lovers are well catered for with an impressive 44 courses within a 30 mile radius. Tennis courts and bicycle hire are also available locally. There are many local walks with natural and historical points of interest.
The village of Camber has a couple of pubs including The Dunes café and restaurant, and the award-winning The Place at the Beach Bar and Grill offering a range of delicious dishes made from local, free range and organic ingredients. The Rye Bay Beach Cafe has also recently opened, offering guests a further dining option within a few minutes stroll of the house. The delightful, medieval town of Rye (4 miles from Camber) also offers an excellent selection of pubs, cafés and restaurants. Alternatively buy and barbecue your own fresh seafood!
Situated on the edge of Romney Marsh just a few miles from the sea, Rye is the perfect place from which to explore diverse natural landscapes on foot, by bicycle or boat.
The popular summer destination of Camber Sands is nearby, offering a huge expanse of white sandy beach and a large dune system to explore.
The area is of historic military interest, being the location for a variety of fortifications from the 16th, 17th and 20th centuries. There is also a disused lifeboat station, which once housed the Mary Stanford lifeboat, tragically lost at sea in 1928 with no survivors.
Although called Camber Castle, the 16th century fort is actually situated between Rye Harbour and Winchelsea. At the time of construction, the site was a shingle spit offering protection to Rye Bay and the approaches to the local towns. The area has since silted up over time and is now situated inland. Camber Castle opens to the public on the first Saturday of July, August and September at 2pm and as part of guided
walks around Rye Harbour Nature Reserve (see events page).
Rye Bay offers excellent sailing throughout the year and the rivers Rother and Tilling are both popular with canoeists. The Royal Military Canal passes through Rye. Winchelsea Beach is a small community located at the foot of the hill upon which stands Winchelsea. It is largely residential but the long shingle beach offers magnificent views across the Rye Bay and Rother estuary.
For walkers several long distance footpaths pass through Rye – 1066 Country Walk, High Weald Landscape Trail, Saxon Shore Way and Royal Military Canal Path. Stretching for 32 miles from Seabrook in Kent to Cliff End in East Sussex, the Royal Military Canal passes through Rye offering visitors lots of opportunities for boating and fishing. The canal was originally designed as a defensive structure for keeping out invaders rather than for navigation. Now a popular waterway, walkers and cyclists share the towpath that runs alongside, enjoying the surrounding scenery and wildlife.
Romney Marsh is a huge wetland lying to the east of Rye and the home for several rural communities. Having been reclaimed gradually over the centuries, agriculture and sheep farming in particular, now thrives on the marsh.
Dungeness is a large shingle headland sheltering the Romney Marsh from the sea. Dominated by a modern nuclear power station, there are also two lighthouses and a quirky village of mainly wooden houses in the area. The artist and film director Derek Jarman moved to Dungeness in the late eighties where he created a magnificent garden of metal sculptures before passing away in 1994.
The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch narrow gauge railway links the terminals of Dungeness and Hythe in Kent, passing through Romney, Dymchurch and several other stops along the way. The line was constructed in the 1920s using rails just 15 inches apart and all ten of the original one-third full size steam locomotives built between 1925 and 1937 still run to a seasonal timetable.
