WNU Weekends: Rye

Rye, East Sussex. 
Recommended Season:
It's got to be a long weekend in Spring hasn't it? Walks along the beach, bundled in layers, with warm coffees in hands sounds like our perfect Saturday away.
(Fingers crossed for clear blue skies all day)
Average Temperature:
Around 10-15 degrees in Spring and always remember the sea breeze!
Distance from HQ:
71 miles.

To stay:
We have been home for a while now and boy are we excited to be checking out. The White House on the high street has lovely rooms, and is located in the heart of Rye, or have a home away from home and stay in the beautiful Scallop Cottage.  

To do:
Potter around the cobbled streets of Rye exploring the knick-knack shops and crocked houses. Make sure to take stops and support the local cosy pubs along the way - favourites include The Standard, The Ypres and The Globe! 
To pack:
Weave shirts and knitted vests, any of the Brushed collection and some towelling with your wellies (essential) for a Camber Sands walk.
To eat:
The scallops at The Standard and brunch at The Fig café are firm favourites (very happy to take a break from home cooked meals and breakfast in bed...)
Wander to:
Camber Sands is a must. As one of the only sandy beaches in Sussex, it’s just the best in the Summer, so make sure to head down with a bat and ball and a well stocked cool bag. 
For the evening:
For a special dinner, we love to book Tillingham, a local vineyard in neighbouring Peasmarsh, which has a delicious dinner sourced from their farmlands, kitchen garden and of course lots of their own wine.  
To buy:
Scout out some unique finds at the array of antiques shops, pick up your favourite old school sweets from Britcher & Rivers sweet shop, or - for more statement items - book an appointment with Alex MacArthur interiors to discover treasures their stunning 15th Century Monastery.
