The South East England region

Situated on the outskirts of the small

village of Beckley, this wonderful holiday cottage

offers peace and quiet with 'civilisation' within a short reach.This is a

truly superb location for exploring 1066 Country with its dramatic legends and

extraordinary history.

Near

to the stunning Sussex

coastline, within just 5 miles of Rye.

Rye is quite

enchanting with cobbled streets and beautifully preserved historic houses from

medieval, Tudor and Georgian times. Rye is one

of the Cinque Ports and was once surrounded by

sea on three sides. Henry lll built a castle in 1247 to defend the town and

this remains perched on top of the hill as a museum. The town is a delightful

place to explore with a uniquely unhurried atmosphere and easily explored by

foot. Perched on a hill and overlooking the River Rother and Romney Marsh this

ancient town is the sort of place that you thought existed only in your

imagination. The town still has a busy fishing fleet and fresh fish can be

bought direct from the fishermen at Strand Quay. For those wishing to eat out Rye is filled with a

variety of pubs, inns and restaurants and many of these are in historic

buildings. What could be more perfect than enjoying afternoon tea in front of a

roaring log fire in one of the many charming locations? Rye is renowned for its annual Rye Festival

but also has many other interesting events throughout the year such as Rye

Bonfire Night and Rye Scallop Festival in February.

With

historic sites such as Bodiam Castle (15 minutes away) and Battle (25 minutes), history lovers and

garden enthusiasts have an abundance of places to visit. Many an hour can be

spent discovering these and enjoying homemade tea and cakes in their tea rooms.

Gardens include Hole Park in Rolvenden, Great Dixter in Northiam and the

famous Sissinghurst

Castle Gardens

designed by Vita Sackville-West, English author, poet and gardener

There

is much to do in the surrounding area, for sporting activities there are

several local golf clubs, a water sports centre, kite surfing, fishing and

tennis all with an easy drive. Of course the sandy beaches of Camber (20

minutes) and beaches at Winchelsea (20 minutes) will keep children busy for

hours and during the winter these are lovely places to walk and enjoy the fresh

sea air.

A

short 15 minute drive away is the Chapel Down Vineyard - home to England's

premium wine producer and well worth a visit. With tours and wine tasting

available as well as the stunning 'Richard Phillips' restaurant it is a lovely

destination for a full day out.


Further

down the east coast is Hastings, most famous for

its connection with the Norman conquest of England in 1066. It's now home to Europe's largest fleet of beach-launched fishing boats.

This area is famously called the 'Stade' an old Saxon term meaning

"landing place", and dates from before the Battle of Hastings in

1066. It has been used for beaching boats for over a thousand years, a use

which continues to this day.

If you love fishing then you must

visit the Hastings Fishermen's Museum and the Shipwreck Heritage Centre. The

Fishermen's Museum, housed in the former fishermen's church, is dedicated to

the fishing industry and maritime history of Hastings. The shipwreck heritage centre

displays artifacts from wrecks around the area.

Other museums

to visit in Hastings include the Hastings Museum

and Art Gallery

and the Old Town Hall Museum. Why not visit the recently

opened Jerwood Gallery, in the Stade area of the Old Town.

It's a permanent home for the Jerwood Collection of 20th and 21st century

British.

Further

afield, a 45-minute drive, the lovely Georgian spa town of Tunbridge Wells is well worth a visit and the

shopping is extensive full of boutiques and individual shops! Or why not take a

day trip to France, the Euro star Train from Ashford or the Channel Tunnel at

Folkestone will transport you to a French location in record time - just don't

forget to pack your passport!
