Our days in

...East Sussex...

At last, I've uploaded my photos taken when we had our short break in Udimore, East Sussex. The village is nestled between Rye and Hastings, and just away from the coast behind Winchelsea. Although only there for two nights, we made the most of our one day...by spending most of the morning in Winchelsea, one of the Cinque Ports and then the rest of the day at Great Dixter...the garden designed by Christopher Lloyd. It's an amazing cacophony of colour, both subtle and riotous...with plantings you'd never consider. It's somewhere I've promised myself I'd visit for too long, and how glad I am to have been now...but, Winchelsea first.

It's a beautiful town, well worth a visit, and we were lucky with the weather, having a gloriously sunny day, when all around us had been torrential rain.

It is a beautiful area, and if you ever get over the channel, it's an easy area to visit from France.

Mind, you live in a beautiful area too.

Thank you...you too. xx
