There is always something going on in Rye - Bonfire night is very popular with its amazing display of fireworks - so perfect from Salts Cottage - usually the Saturday after November 5th. Then there Rye Scallop Week in February where you can eat scallops at practically every eaterie in different recipes. There is a jazz festival and many many more activities in Rye!
You are only 10 minutes by car to the famous Camber Sands with miles of sandy beach, and don't forget the picnic basket filled with yummy Rye deli food!! You can walk to Camber along the footpath - takes about an hour.
As you know - you can bring your Pooches - and there are so many walks around Rye and the immediate countryside - with plenty of welcoming pubs in the country who all accept dogs.
If you want to go further a field by car, you can explore all the National Trust houses and gardens as there are so many in the South East, as well as popping across to France for the day - about 40 minutes to the Channel Tunnel with 3 crossings an hour. Stock up with good wine at knock down prices - majesticinfrance is a good website and their outlet is right near the tunnel in Calais.
Or alternatively - catch the train from Rye to Ashford and go on Eurostar to Paris or Brussels for lunch!!!
The train from Rye will take you to Ashford, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton - a good idea rather than driving and having to park - especially in Brighton!!
