A charming Grade II listed period cottage with dark wood beams inside and decorating the outside. The cottage is tucked away in a secret corner off the ancient Church Square. Built around 1400 with later additions in the 18th century. Rye was once surrounded by sea, this fortified hilltop town played an important role in the defence of the south coast of England. These days, the river no longer harbours warships and is home to the local fishing fleet. Rye hosts a 'Scallop Festival' in February each year. There are many good pubs and restaurants within Rye to sample the locally caught fish. Shop: 100 yards Pub: 100 yards Coast: 3 miles

Perfect location for Rye. Very well equipped clean & cosy cottage. There were only 2 of us but may have been a bit of a squeeze for 3. Parking difficult but bought a week ticket for station car-park which was only 10 minutes walk away.Mr Philip Manktelow - 15th May 2018

Lovely little cottage tucked in the Old Town of Rye. Excellent character and lovely fire!Miss L Hartridge - 8th February 2016
A beautiful little cottage in a picturesque peaceful location. The stairs are really steep so unsuitable for the very young or old. This is a very cosy base.Mrs J Scott - 9th December 2015
