Providence Cottage is located in the heart of the Medieval town of Rye, right by the Landgate, with its castle and fascinating and charming houses. Once upon a time Rye was actually on the coast but it now stands back by a few miles. It still has a fishing fleet bringing fish in by the river. The cottage dates from the 1300's  and is charming and full of character and makes a comfortable base for touring East Sussex and all its many places of interest to visit. Views of the estuary, marshes and immaculate parks and Bowling Green are from the opposite side of the street. Shop: 500 yards Pub: 100 yards Coast: 3 miles

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at Providence Cottage. The cottage is very pretty and well thought out, we liked our little hamper of goodies, it is a nice personal touch. Everything in the cottage was clean and the garden is lovely ( although it was a bit too chilly while we were there for a barbecue!)
