Celebrate with 'Sabrage' at Rye Lodge
A Fabulous Break of Sheer indulgence
Enjoy being pampered in luxury at Rye Lodge with our special ‘Sabrage celebration’. Typically our Sabrage events last three days, but we can arrange bespoke events to suit larger parties of guests, from a Sabrage evening without accommodation to a themed mini-holiday.
The itinerary below is typical of previous three day Sabrage celebration for a large group booking.
Arrive in the lovely medieval town of Rye [an‘Ancient Town’ of the historic Cinque Ports] on Wednesday, and settle in to your comfortable room where you will find fruit, flowers, chocolates and a half bottle of Philippe Brugnon Champagne to welcome you. In the evening Jean and Kerry de Courcy invite you to a Champagne Reception where you will meet your fellow guests. Dinner may be taken at a choice of Rye's outstanding restaurants.
On Thursday morning you could enjoy an early morning swim [not compulsory!] in the delightful Venetian Pool and then, after a hearty breakfast served either in the Terrace Room or in your bedroom, you may take a leisurely stroll around the lovely old town of Rye. At 11.30am Paul Webbe, Principal of the Webbe’s School of Cookery and Chef- Owner of the renowned Webbe’s restaurants, will present a cookery demonstration of Rye Bay fish. He will demonstrate how to fillet and cook it and then you will enjoy a two course Rye Bay Fish Lunch with a glass [or two] of chilled Chablis to wash it down! The afternoon will be at leisure.
At 7.00pm meet in the Terrace Room for the Champagne Sabrage Party followed by a wonderful six course Gala Dinner with various Champagnes to accompany the superb food.
On Friday morning after breakfast and a walk around Rye we will meet in the lounge for morning coffee and Kerry de Courcy will present ‘In Appreciation of Champagne’, an interesting presentation on Champagne culminating in a tasting of several Champagnes including some ‘Prestige Cuvees’. Following the tasting, you will be served a mouth watering light lunch with champagne and wines to enhance your enjoyment.
In the evening enjoy dinner in the Elizabethan Room at the centuries-old Mermaid Inn [the second oldest Inn in England]. This will end the ‘Sabrage Sojourn’ but of course you may stay on for the weekend if you wish and enjoy all that Rye and the surrounding countryside has to offer.
