About the location
Rye 6.5 miles; Camber Sands 10 miles; Hastings 11.5 miles.
The village of Beckley, dating back to the 1700s, sits in the Sussex countryside, and has enjoyed a varied past, including heavy involvement with ironworks and forestry. Beckley remains a quintessential English village with local shops, churches and a village hall staging events throughout the year, with race nights, craft fairs and even an amateur theatre group all taking their turn. Popular for its beautiful woodland and their numerous walks, the River Rother also runs close by and is great for a summer stroll or a picnic on the riverbank. The surrounding area is alive with popular places to visit; the medieval town of Rye boasts historic houses, cobbled streets with tea rooms and antiques shops, battlements and boats, and perched at the top of the hill looking down on all below, Rye Castle, built in 1249. A short drive from Rye and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d arrived on foreign shores; Camber Sands, with its wonderful sand dunes, has been the location for many films sets, due to its beautiful golden beach and shallow sea waters. Tenterden has a steam railway complete with restored station, waiting rooms and cafe, where you can board a train and journey back in time. But, at the end of a busy day Beckley Woods will call you back with its leaves rustling on the trees allowing you to relax and unwind with just the sound of birdsong on the breeze.
