Location Information

The Rock is part of a village-style development just a few minutes' walk from the 7 miles of Blue Flag beach and dunes of Camber Sands. Often popping up in films, TV shows and ads, Camber Sands were used as the Sahara in Carry On Follow That Camel and as a location lookalike for the Dunkirk evacuation beaches. The village itself has a seaside atmosphere, with cafes, fish and chip shops, small general stores, shops selling beach gear, amusements, plus a couple of pubs.

The historic walled town of Rye is just 3 miles away, perched on a hill overlooking the River Rother and Romney Marsh. The town is great fun to explore, from Strand Quay up cobbled Mermaid Street, passing timber framed houses with quirky names such as The House With Two Front Doors' and The House Opposite. Hear colourful tales of Rye's history in the Castle Museum and take in the views from 13th century Ypres Tower. Browse interesting little shops, tuck into indulgent cakes in olde worlde tea shops and sample fresh caught fish dishes in the many bistros and pubs.

A fun way to explore the region is on the narrow gauge Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch steam railway and one of the South East's best loved family attractions is the time travel adventure at Yesterdays World in Rother. Other highlights include the 1066 town of Hastings, Canterbury and magnificent Bodian Castle .

For stocking up on groceries, the nearest supermarket is Sainsburys in New Romney (7 miles) and Tesco or Morrisons in Hastings (15 miles) who will also deliver. In the garden of England, however, local shops and markets are full of superb local produce, including the farmers market in Rye every Thursday morning and Winchelsea Farm Foods. For the perfect parental tipple on a summer's evening, pick up fine English wines at Carr Taylor Vineyard in Westfield or Sedlescombe Organic Vineyard in Rother.

Activities nearby include kite surfing centre, land boarding, kite, buggy and paddle boarding, kids camp providing windsurfing, and dingy sailing, and Rye Golf club.
