Holiday Rental House
New listing as of August 2014 Fabulous 'New England' style beach house with stunning sea views! The house is set on The Ridge just yards from Winchelsea Beach, near Rye in East Sussex. The house was featured in Coast Magazine in 2008 and Real Homes magazine Aug 2010. Located in the small village of Winchelsea Beach - where marshland meets the sea, the shingle beach gives way to flat wet sand at low tide. A wonderful four-mile walk is to follow the sea wall eastwards- stopping at the Bird Reserve, then following the River Rother towards Rye and returning across the field tracks past Camber Castle. Whether you want to go surfing, cycling, walking or beach-combing, Bramble Tye is the perfect place to sit back and decide - either in the summer house or gazing across the sea from your balcony....New listing as of August 2014 Fabulous 'New England' style beach house with stunning sea views!

The beach is peaceful and never particularly crowded with shingle at high tide and level sand at low tide. When the tide is far out, there is a large, almost flat area - ideal for walking and shrimping.. Swimming is safe and best at high tide and Winchelsea has regularly received a Clean Beach Award. A wonderful 4-mile walk or cycle follows the sea wall eastwards- first stopping at the hides ...
