We will be staying in Sittingborne visiting the village where my husband's family were born. Our plan is to base ourselves in Lewes for 3 nights but on the way to Lewes we thought we would spend 1 night visiting something things on our wish list possibly Sissinghurst Gardens/Bodiam Castle/Battle/Rye/Tenterden. I doubt if we can do all these in 1 day so any advice on 'must see" would be appreciated. Help on choosing where to stay for the 1 night would be appreciated. We will have a car but are travelling from Australia so we are not used to the roads. My husband would prefer not to be heavy traffic! We thought rather than stay in Lews for the four days we should stay over one night en route to save doubling back from Lewes.
