WINCHELSEA BEACH

This area mostly grew just before and after the second world war. On the ridge over looking the sea there is an eclectic mix of old railway carriages, chalets and 1930’s bungalows popular with many artists and musicians. Many of theses properties are now being renovated.

Along the Sea Road there are many single story properties. The shingle beach stretches from the cliffs at Pett Level to Rye Harbour where a nature reserve is home to many varieties of wildfowl and waterbirds. There is a coastal path along from the beach to Rye Harbour. The harbour is a couple of miles from Rye town and there is a pedestrian only road, which leads to the shingle beach.

Facilities include a Co-op supermarket, a hairdressers pub and a smart butchers/deli/café and restaurant in ‘The Ship. There are also two holiday caravan parks one with direct beach access.

Transport: Buses from Rye to Hastings..
