Adventure Details

Day 1

Start time 09:00

Wind through the undulating Weald of Kent before descending down to Hastings for fish and chips on the beach and a visit to the Jerwood Gallery. Then over the Down, and into Rye for tea and a wander around the quaint historic lanes. We then follow a bike path all the way to the gorgeous beach and dunes at Camber Sands for a wild swim before setting off for a shower and freshen up at our campsite. The venue for our gourmet dinner is the Gallivant hotel. The environmentally sustainable restaurant uses delicious local produce from local fishermen, farmers and foragers; including Romney Marsh lamb and freshly caught fish. The wine list has over five pages of English wines!

Day 2

On Sunday, after an energising yoga class and brunch at the campsite, we're back on our bikes to make our way to the bleak, other-worldly Dungeness, made famous by the filmmaker Derek Jarman. Quiet country lanes take us back to Ashford for a super quick 30 min journey to St Pancras station. You'll leave this weekend adventure feeling refreshed, relaxed and like you've had a weekend well spent.

End time 17:00
