With Teenagers

Bring the bikes or hire them from Rye Hire where they have a wide selection of new bikes every year and head off to the forest or the beach, if this is too much then arrange to go Windsurfing, Canoeing, sailing, River or sea fishing.

windsurfer

Windsurfing and sailing courses are run locally and the forests are only a few minutes drive from Rye Bay, what better place to take the Dogs and a picnic

We are only a short drive from London, who want to get away to the coast for the day, as it’s only just over an hour to get to us down the M.20 or via the M.25, and only 50 minutes from Tunbridge Wells.
