  • "Well presented historic property in a fabulous location in the old part of Rye."

    The owners were very nice & helpful and we had a great week there. The only small thing I would change was the heating control was set to not go above 20, as I say just a very small thing, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Great accommodation right in the centre of Rye, so you could park your car and forget about it for a few days, which was lovely."

    Rye is a lovely little town with unusual shops and antiques to browse. Accommodation had all that you could ask for. If you like an old house with plenty of history then Flushing House is the one for you.

  • "The management of the booking was very good and very easy."

    Flushing House is excellent and right in the centre of activity in the old town. The information provided both with regard to the access and the house facilities is extremely helpful. The information about the local restaurants and shops is welcome as is the information about local attractions and transport. The house itself is an attraction and is very comfortable. We had a very happy holiday.

  • "This is a charming, spacious, stylish, historical and well-furnished house."

    We were much impressed by the kitchen and laundry facilities and the homey living room furniture. The kitchen equipment and amenities were more than adequate and exceeded our expectations. The dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer worked perfectly and are an asset. All entertainment devices in the living room worked well and enhanced our stay. Flushing House has a central location in the "citadel" of Rye, the most fashionable quarter of the town, immediately adjacent to Ypres Tower Castle, St. Anthony's Catholic church, St. Mary's Anglican church and the Town Hall. There are excellent tea houses, restaurants, pubs and quaint shops within a short walking distance and Jempson's Supermarket is also close by. Mr. and Mrs. Jones were congenial and helpful, immediately available by phone and e-mail.. We cannot recommend Flushing House and Rye highly enough to anyone who is looking for an enjoyable, cultured and comfortable stay in England.

The property

A stunning Grade II* listed corner cottage in Rye, beautifully presented with a weather-boarded exterior, sitting in the heart of the town's historic Citadel.

Built around 1520, this beautiful Rye cottage still has some lovely original features including exposed beams, a bread oven in the laundry room and an original Tudor turning staircase, and features as the estate agent in the 2014 BBC TV series Mapp and Lucia.

Luxuriously appointed throughout, this Rye cottage offers spacious accommodation, including one bathroom and one shower room, and bedrooms with huge comfy beds!

The sitting room in this Rye cottage offers sumptuous seating, and is just the place to rest and unwind after a busy day exploring the cobbled streets and historic houses of this Medieval town.

Just step outside your Rye cottage and you are only a few minutes' walk from everything that this historic town has to offer.

Shops and restaurants, museums and art galleries, and even Rye Castle and St Mary's Church are only a few steps away from this fascinating Rye cottage.

A visit to Rye would not be complete without buying fish freshly caught that day, then creating a delicious dish back in this peaceful Rye cottage retreat, before spending the evening planning your days exploring the rest of Sussex and Kent.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.

Property only suitable for 4 adults and a child as 5th bed is a folding bed.
