We had a most successful long weekend with eleven of us staying in two spacious and comfortable caravans.
They were sited by the sea in a nature reserve marsh area rich with bird life and complete with bird hides. The beaches were either shingle or sandy. Not far away were the impressive cliffs of Fairlight, thick with gorse and flowers.
The area is also perfect for cycling. We did a circuit around Romney Marsh, visiting many interesting churches. For more variety there was Dungeness and the power station and the house of Derek Jarman.
Rye itself is a quaint town and one of the cinque ports. The area has a great variety of tea-shops, pubs and restaurants. We were further blessed with perfect weather.
Our group, including Deniz, our charming 8 year old member, had varied interests and abilities, but everyone had a good time.
Thank you Polly for a new venture and I’m sure that caravanning will become part of Red Rope’s future programmes.
