Nestling in the delightful countryside just 3 miles to the north west of Rye, Peasmarsh maintains a busy local community. The church of St. Peter and St. Paul lies about a mile from the village centre, showing that the population was struck down in the 14th Century with bubonic plague and the surviving inhabitants re-settled nearby.

There is even a large independently-owned superstore, a filling station and a country hotel and leisure centre at the north edge of the village.
