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

Beautiful atmospheric little cottage. We enjoyed our stay so much.

Previous Customer,

This is the second time that I've stayed at No 2 Hucksteps Row, and I am hoping in future to make it an annual holiday. The cottage is ideally situated in the centre of Rye, with permit supplied parking available nearby in Watchbell Street. A lovely cottage with loads of character (love the stairs!)

Mr H,

Lovely historical property; great working fire.

Mr Paul D,
