Recently on a weekend business trip, myself and the better half decided to check out the local area. We were situated 10 minutes from the town of Rye so we took a little visit planning on heading to a cafe for a cuppa.
When we got there we realised there was so much more to see. Great little streets filled with tea rooms, book shops and all the quintessetialy English style you could fit into one place. Tudor buildings, adorable cottages and cobbled streets with some of the best shop fronts and finishing touches.
We stopped off at The Cobbles Tea Rooms in which we had teas, teacakes and scones. How very British of us! The place was beautifully decorated with flowers outside and inside with China plates, books and homemade cakes.
We carried on around the streets seeing the houses decorated with beams, cottage name plates (smugglers cottage, Tudors) and so much that you could only see in a small, classic English town. I couldn’t take enough photos of everything! There was a granary house converted into shops, antiques galore, stained glass windows and all of the beautiful, original buildings.
There is plenty to eat and drink in the town and on one evening we went to the lovely Tandoori Ghandi Indian Restaurant. Great tasting and good quality food made our group of 8 very happy customers. We also spotted a cute little Tea rooms named Edith’s where we would definitely head to on another visit.
If you ever find yourself in the area, Rye is certainly worth seeing. The classic buildings alone are stunning but the fact that all the shops and cafes are traditional and original it’s what I loved most.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve been and what you thought of the town and any places you’d recommend for our next trip!
Until next time,
