We still have the fantastic Rye Bonfire parade and fireworks ahead of us this year as well as all the Christmas preparations. Rye is set to put on a great Christmas event this year, with new organisers working hard to make the annual parade a real day to remember.
I am already preparing for Christmas at home too. With a large family and Christmas lunch to cook for 12 people it's never too early to start. Then there are the decorations to do - both at home and in Marsh View Cottage. Gifts to buy and wrap and making sure everything is perfect for our guests over the festive period.It's a busy time coming up.
But, as busy as we are in November and December, the busiest time of a year from a holiday home owners point of view starts on Boxing Day. From then on until around the end of February we are overwhelmed with enquiries and bookings for the year ahead. Popular dates are booked very quickly - Easter, all school holidays,Bank Holiday weekends, the following New Year and Christmas, and of course the entire summer.
Every summer and other popular dates we are inundated with more enquiries wanting to book.We have to disappoint them which is such a shame.Early booking really is essential and it seems that just as soon as Christmas is over, then we are thinking of getting away.For popular dates we could book our little cottage many times over.
The local area not only has one of the UK's finest sandy beaches and the only sand dunes in East Sussex but is also steeped in rich history, being in 1066 country. You don't even have to go far to find history and one of the prettiest examples of a medieval town in the UK. The stunning cobbled streets of ancient Rye is only 3 miles from the cottage.Many of our guests walk or cycle into Rye and enjoy exploring this quaintest of towns.
