    “16 The Boathouse had everything and more for a great stay.”

    Inside was well equipped. It over looks a river, so it's a bonus to watch the birds come and go. Rye itself is lovely with plenty to see and eating out was a pleasure too.

The property

A modern, one-bedroom first floor apartment with a Juliet balcony, overlooking the quay of the River Rother, in the Cinque Port of Rye.

Stylishly decorated and furnished, offering a sleek alternative to the more traditional Sussex cottages, this 3* Gold Award apartment is cosy and comfortable, with lovely views over the boats that pass through the quay at high tide, and to open fields beyond.

The apartment is centrally located, with the amenities of the town a short walk away.

Rye offers a museum, swimming pool, windsurfing lake, dinghy sailing, independent shops, galleries and weekly markets.

Fishing, cycle hire, horse riding, tennis and golf are also in the locality.

Camber Sands, 5 miles away, offers a kitesurfing course and swimming, or visit Battle, 16 miles away, an historic town built upon the site where William the Conqueror defeated King Harold.

A superb Rye cottage alternative for a relaxing break.

About the location


Camber 5 miles; Hastings 12 miles; Battle 16 miles.

Rye is a 13th century cinque port in East Sussex, host to the River Rother, Romney Marshes and a history dating back before the Norman Conquest. A cobbled town offering an excellent array of unusual shops, antique emporiums, galleries selling local artist paintings and pottery, Rye also has a delightful range of tea rooms, restaurants, pubs and historic inns. There is also a weekly general market on Thursdays, as well as a farmers’ market every Wednesday morning. The town played host to BBC film crews for nine weeks in the summer of 2014, while filming of the TV series Mapp and Lucia took place, which has now been made into a DVD. All coastal scenes were filmed in nearby Camber Sands and bits of filming also took place in Hastings and the Tenterden Town railway station. Walkers and birdwatchers can enjoy a footpath leading across the marshes to Camber Castle built by Henry VIII. Local attractions include miniature or full-size steam train rides, local vineyards, stately homes, castles, gardens and beaches, including the beautiful nearby Camber Sands. Artists and photographers will especially enjoy the scenery; big skies, winding roads, and picturesque villages with ancient inns and tea shops. A truly relaxing and wonderful holiday destination.
