Jill’s experience in lettings in the Rye area is unparalleled and she has built up an invaluable network of contacts as a respected local professional, giving her a unique offering and an unrivalled insight into the local property market. Jill herself is a long-term resident of Rye, where she lives with her two young children, and loyal Spaniel, Fletcher. A local tip she’d like to share is the circular walk from Rye via Camber Castle, taking you into the beautiful bird sanctuary at Rye Harbour and onto Winchelsea Beach with its views towards Camber and Pett, then stopping off at the William the Conqueror for a Sunday roast or tapas lunch.
