ON MY DOORSTEP...
Visit… ‘Rye, a lovely historic town that is crammed full of antiques shops, coffee houses and pubs. The town is also home to Kino (kinodigital.co.uk), a great independent cinema.’
Shop at… ‘Knoops (01797 225838), also in Rye, for the most amazing hot chocolate you will ever try.’
Go for a meal at… ‘Hoof (01797 224983, thehoof.co.uk), again in Rye, for the best local burgers and great service. You must try the sweet potato fries!’
