Location description from owner
The England region
East Sussex is a place for all seasons where we are spoilt for choice with the array of places to visit all within a reasonable travelling distance of Rye. Rye is situated near the coast, bordering East Sussex and Kent and offers both coastal, countryside, and historical places of interest. The immediate coastline provides the most invigorating walks and desolated beaches to chill if that is what you are seeking, from beautiful sandy beaches such as Camber Sands to the more rugged Rye Harbour, Dungeness and Winchelsea. The area has proved to be a photographers paradise with the most amazing sunsets throughout the year.
For a traditional English seaside feel, Hastings offers the usual fun antics of candy floss, fairground rides, crazy golf and even Smugglers Caves.
For the shopaholics or for those that just love to just mooch ensure you visit Hastings Old Town which is vibrant and buzzy offering lots of interesting shops with antique, retro and vintage treasures.
There are many woodland areas, and hundreds of walks and places to cycle to explore the beautiful surrounding undulating countryside with many small villages dotted along the way with pubs for a traveller's rest. For those wishing to explore the area by bike, bikes are available for hire locally in Rye.
East Sussex and Kent boast a number of National Trust properties such as Bodiam Castle, and English Heritage sites such as Battle Abbey, together with a plethora of attractions according to taste. There are also many inspiring art galleries, both well established and emerging, such as the Jerwood Gallery, Rye Art Gallery and the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill.
If kayaking takes your fancy, Bodium Boating Station in Northiam offers canoeing and Kayaking on the River Rother. There you can also pick up the Kent and East Sussex Steam Railway for a magical trip back in time to Bodiam Castle.
Port Lypme Wildlife Park is within 30 minutes drive of Rye and offers a great day out.On a hot day overlooking the vicinity you could almost imagine yourself on the Savannah!
Further afield, Lewes and Brighton are easily accessible by either train from Rye Station or by car. For those looking to travel even further afield, Rye has good links to Ashford International where you can jump on the Eurostar and find yourself in Paris before you know it!
Rye itself is a quintessentially English town steeped in history attracting visitors from all over the world. The rich and famous are known to frequent its streets and it has proved a popular place for filming in recent years. Mermaid Street is probably most famous for its cobbles and 15th century Mermaid Inn. St Mary's church offers a view from the clock tower not for the faint hearted, but a popular place for marriage proposals! For foodies, you really are spoilt for choice in terms of award winning restaurants; Webbs Fish restaurant, The Amberette and Landgate Bistro are all within minutes of the Find. For a bit of retail therapy, there are a number of good independent shops and art galleries in the High Street and the roads adjacent. For retro music lovers, a visit to Grammar Records is not to be missed. At the bottom of the town in Strand Quay and in Cinque Port Street is a treasure trove of antique shops to forage through. Rye holds a traditional market on Thursdays in the Cattle Market car park and also has a farmer's market in Strand Quay on Wednesday mornings.
In terms of beaches, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve offers a place to escape from it all for those looking for bracing walks along an unspoilt rugged beach. From Rye Harbour you can see right across to Camber Sands which is in itself breathtaking to observe and a great place to take some amazing photos.
Whatever your interests, there is always something happening in Rye and the surrounding area. It is a place for all seasons; be captivated by the infamous Bonfire celebrations renowned in East Sussex during October and November or be caught up in the festivities of "Jack in the Green" as part of the May Day celebrations in Hastings. Around Christmas, Rye comes in to its own with the Rye Christmas Festival. Although too many to mention there is also a whole host of craft fairs and country shows, food and wine festivals such as the Scallop festival in February, the annual Rye International Jazz Festival in August, the Arts Festival in September and Open Studios throughout the year. There is also a vibrant music scene with some amazing open mike sessions and pubs playing live music in the surrounding area.

“Beautiful cottage, excellent location, exceptional hospitality!”
I booked 'The Find' for a last minute get away with some friends. Lesley was so helpful, making sure we had all the information we needed for a great weekend. The cottage is really central but tucked away down a twitten so feels very private. The decor was amazing, kitchen better equipped than at home! The beds were wonderfully comfortable with fluffy duvets and feather pillows. It really was a Find! Thank you Lesley, hopefully will return again soon.
Owner's reply: I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Find. Thank you for your positive comments!
