25% off new, autumn Bridge weekend at The George in Rye

12th June 2014 Print

StockenBridge Breaks, the specialist in bespoke Bridge holidays with charming locations, is offering a very special early booking deal on its newly-launched autumn Bridge weekend at The George in Rye, East Sussex, from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 November 2014. Guests who book as a group of four players for the weekend (and thus complete their own Bridge table) get one free place, representing a discount of 25%. All standards of player are welcome, including beginners.

The George in Rye, a beautifully renovated four-star Old English coaching inn, is the perfect spot for a cosy weekend among friends, with roaring log fires and original features, including an elegant Georgian ballroom where Bridge sessions will take place. Freshly caught seafood from Rye Bay is a highlight of the Grill menu, along with local delicacies ranging from meltingly tender salt marsh lamb to flavourful Sussex cheeses. Bedrooms are styled to combine the ultimate creature comforts with the best of contemporary British design: luxurious Vi-Spring mattresses, Italian linen, and a wealth of wow factor from four-poster beds to free-standing tin baths.

Prices start from £360 pp (two sharing, includes 25% discount). Friendly games of Bridge, expert tuition for all standards of player, refreshments, course notes and prizes are included in the two-night break, hosted by brother-and-sister team Zeb and Claudia of the renowned, Bridge-playing Stocken family. Welcome drinks with canapés, full English breakfast, lunch and gourmet three-course dinner with wine are also provided. Saturday afternoon is free to explore historic Rye or take a bracing beach stroll at Camber Sands. Solo travellers, couples and groups of friends are all welcome.

An optional Sunday afternoon “taster” Bridge session with cream tea is available at a cost of £20 pp for local players, those new to StockenBridge Breaks and guests who just can’t get enough Bridge!
