Medieval yet charming, the quaint town of Rye lies in the South East corner of Sussex. With stunning green Sussex countryside to the North and endless ocean to the South, Rye has the best of both worlds. Camber Sands is the main beach in the area with attractive dunes and coastal cliffs with fascinating wildlife, a true catchment area for natural beauty. Many Sussex holiday rentals are nestled away within all this natural beauty, in prime position for wildlife and idyllic walks right from your front door.
A showcase for all of this is hidden away in Rye Museum located in Ypres tower, a stunning building with turrets and round pillar shaped walls. It was originally there to protect the town but it is now there for many uses such as the museum and the fabulous gardens that are there for the public to explore and roam around enjoying the amazing arrangement of flowers and plants. Taking a brief step away from the tranquillity of the gardens and museums, there are also many festivals year round, more so in the summer season, but mainly art and music festivals creating a lively family atmosphere on an international level.
You can also throw yourself into the sea and create a splash; being so close to the coast there are so many opportunities for participation in water sports such as windsurfing, surfing, canoeing; be it taking a lesson or jumping in at the deep end and learning by doing and hiring for the day. On the other side of town there are acres of rolling hills out into the Sussex country side ready to be walked across or cycled on if you prefer. Whatever the weather, whatever your preference, there’s always so much to be done in Rye, you’ll never lose interest.
