Dairyman's Barn is located near the historic town of Rye in East Sussex. Rye is quite enchanting with cobbled streets and beautifully preserved historic houses from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times. It's one of the famous Cinque Ports and was once surrounded by sea on three sides. Henry lll built a castle in 1247 to defend the town and this remains perched on top of the hill as a museum. The town is a delightful place to explore with a uniquely unhurried atmosphere and easily explored by foot. Perched on a hill and overlooking the River Rother and Romney Marsh this ancient town is the sort of place that you thought existed only in your imagination. The town still has a busy fishing fleet and fresh fish can be bought direct from the fishermen at Strand Quay. For those wishing to eat out Rye is filled with a variety of pubs, inns and restaurants and many of these are in historic buildings. What could be more perfect than enjoying afternoon tea in front of a roaring log fire in one of the many charming locations? Rye is renowned for its annual Rye Festival but also has many other interesting events throughout the year such as Rye Bonfire Night and Rye Scallop Festival in February.
With historic sites such as Bodiam Castle and Battle, history lovers and garden enthusiasts have an abundance of places to visit. Many an hour can be spent discovering these and enjoying homemade tea and cakes in their tea rooms. Gardens include Hole Park in Rolvenden, Great Dixter in Northiam and the famous Sissinghurst Castle Gardens designed by Vita Sackville-West, English author, poet and gardener.
There is much to do in the surrounding area, for sporting activities there are several local golf clubs, a water sports centre, kite surfing, fishing and tennis all with an easy drive. Of course the sandy beaches of Camber and beaches at Winchelsea will keep children busy for hours and during the winter these are lovely places to walk and enjoy the fresh sea air.
A short drive away is the Chapel Down Vineyard - home to England's premium wine producer and well worth a visit. With tours and wine tasting available as well as the stunning 'Richard Phillips' restaurant it is a lovely destination for a full day out.
Further afield the lovely Georgian spa town of Tunbridge Wells is well worth a visit and the shopping is extensive full of boutiques and individual shops! Or why not take a day trip to France, the Euro star Train from Ashford or the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone will transport you to a French location in record time - just don't forget to pack your passport!
