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

We enjoyed our stay in Providence Cottage; it is just inside the citadel walls. With a dog, walks are easily accessible. The garden is long and thin but catches the sun nicely in the afternoon; cushions for the garden furniture were helpful. We found the double bed comfortable. Excellent notes and suggestions from the owners and a generous 'welcome pack' including lovely flowers! Parking is not a problem as we were advised to use the main town car park £2/24 hrs. Rye is a beautiful friendly town and we enjoyed Camber Sands, Rye Nature Reserve, Brede Woods, lots of pubs, tea room & restaurants just nearby, wonderful small independent shops, and Nineteen for a massage!

Mrs L,

A beautiful little cottage that's full of character.
