Cycling – Point Farm is on the national cycle network scheme (route 2) which passes directly past the farm and off around the local area.  It is perfect off road cycling suitable for adults and children and is vastly utilized in the warmer months.  Rye is a 3 mile cycle from the farm on the cycle track and the surrounding area is easy going due to the flatness of the marshes.

For the more experienced just inland of Rye are the hills of the South Downs and Fairlight head which offer a more challenging ride through local villages and towns.  There are no motorways or dual carriage ways in any direction for miles of Point Farm.  Click on the link or more information. http://www.sustrans.org.uk/assets/files/county/ncr.pdf

Bikes can be hired from Rye Hire in Cypress Place in the town.  It is advisable to ring them before you intend to hire.  On 01797 223033

Walking – Romney Marsh enjoys labyrinth of public foot paths stretching across the marsh from village to village.  Naturally blessed by its flat terrain walking is easy going.  Use the link below to navigate the paths and bridleways, take a short leisurely stroll along one or part of the shorter walks or spend the day on a more challenging route.  Don’t forget an evening stroll along the sandy beach kick off your shoes if the tide is good and enjoy a paddle, it’s just over the road. http://www.rmcp.co.uk/walking.html

Bird watching – The marsh sees a lot of bird watchers and twitchers visiting for obvious reasons, there is a menagerie of resident and seasonal visiting birds here.  Not just specific marshland/wading birds but this south east corner is on the migratory route of many birds that often miss other parts of the UK.  It’s the perfect resting place before crossing the channel and in reverse after crossing the channel, topped with the fact that in inclement sea conditions many migrating birds opt to rest here or are blown off course.

On Romney Marsh and the adjacent rye bay across the river there are several conservation areas.  At Denge Marsh and Rye Nook huge coastal gravel pits suffice both with good access and public footpaths.  Use the links below to discover these areas and records of current birds being seen and there is our local nature reserve  open every day south of Rye along the River Rother & past Rye Harbour to Winchelsea beach and along the River Brede.  http://www.wildrye.info

There are some lovely villages & historical things to see around the area.  We have castle, museums, steam railway, several special churches, boat hire & boat trips from Rye, events, live music & festivals.  Battle, Bexhill, Pevensey & Herstmonceux are all within a 30 mile radius.  www.visit 1066country.com or www.rye-harbour.co.uk
