Close to the Cinque Ports Towns of Tenterden and Rye, it the perfect base for exploring Kent and Sussex. The historic town of Rye is just six miles away and has lots for visitors to explore for the day, whether you are looking for independent shops or quaint tea rooms. The Heritage Centre, just a gentle stroll down to the Quay, is a good place to start. Here you can watch the 'Sound and Light' show exploring the town's past with the Town model or play using an old penny on the rare pier machines. You can visit the famous Rye Church and watch the 'Quarter Boys' strike the quarter hour and enjoy the beautiful stained glass windows or just take in the views from the 'Gun Gardens', over the marsh and towards the sea. Just ten minutes drive from Rye is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you can walk along the sea wall and spot the migrating birds. You can choose to walk out to Camber Castle, originally located on a shingle spit and where once it protected the towns of Rye and Winchelsea, before the sea receded. Although no longer open to visitors it is still a striking landmark worth a visit.
The beach of Camber Sands is just a short drive away and has miles of sandy beach and dunes to explore. Or visit the rock pools at low tide on the pebbly beach at Pett Level, just a 10 minute drive from Rye.
Tenterden is just ten miles away and is an interesting town to visit, with lots of history and antique shops to browse. Close by are two award winning vineyards which can be visited, Biddenden Vineyard and Chapel Down Winery or you can step back in time and take a trip on Kent and Sussex Railway steam trains. Sissinghurst Castle and Smallhythe Place are all close by and are excellent National Trust properties to visit.
The Towns of Hastings and Ashford are around a thirty minute drive away and here you can get a mainline train to London, if you would like to explore the capital for a day.
