  • "Just loved staying here."

    The house is in a fabulous location, within easy walking distance to the train station, supermarket, shops and river. It was super clean and had all the comforts of home. We were there at Christmas and were delighted that they'd gone to the trouble of putting up a tree and supplying festive treats, including crackers, napkins and festive placemats. Hope to be back!

  • "My family and I stayed at Rye House for Rye Fawkes weekend."

    The house was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It's in a fabulous location too - just a couple of minutes' walk from the train station and supermarket and right next door to the Pipemakers Arms! It was perfect for Rye Fawkes as the procession came right past the house. It also has a private parking space which is quite rare in Rye. I highly recommend this property.

    Practical for us, clean and bright and a lovely touch with the owner leaving wine and biscuits with several condiments in the cupboard. In addition, a lovely welcome card was presented with a suggestion of stargazing. ☺️ The car parking space is also a great asset… and the cottage is located with very easy access to the main streets of Rye. Would highly recommend

    Although there was easy parking, you did not need to use the car around Rye. And, an added bonus was being able to get our daily newspaper just a 3 minute walk away.

  • "What a wonderful welcome awaited us at Rye House when we arrived for our Christmas holiday."

    Not only was there a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, but a lovely welcome pack with all sorts of goodies. The house was so comfy, warm and welcoming, and far more spacious than we were expecting. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever seen, but it was also all the thoughtful little details that made it such a lovely place to stay, like the miniature models on the light pulls. The high street of Rye is very close by, and is utterly charming to explore. Favourite memory is being by the church with bells ringing and lights twinkling as darkness fell on Christmas eve. We also enjoyed being able to go for lengthy walks on the beaches, despite the time of year - getting plenty of fresh air. There was lots more we could have done, so I would definitely go again to continue exploring the area further. A fabulous place to stay at this time of year, we were sorry to leave!

    Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights there was very loud music and people noise until the early hours. Saturday especially as there was live music until 1.00am but noise continued until 2.30am.

The property

This well-presented and superbly located end-terrace holiday home sits right in the heart of the historic town of Rye.

With three attractive bedrooms and two bathrooms this is the perfect choice for couples and families looking to stay in spacious and comfortable accommodation.

The light and airy sitting room offers ample comfy seating for all guests, so whether you are gathered to watch your favourite TV programme or just making the most of time together, this will be the place you head for.

The well-equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing everything from light lunches and picnics to delicious meals.

With a dishwasher to do the hard work the chef can also settle down and enjoy long, lingering dinners around the table where the wine can flow freely, and as there are three wineries all within short drives, why not bring back a bottle after taking a tour around one of them?

If holidaying with children then they are in for a treat.

The twin bedroom has shelves full of games, puzzles, coloured pencils and books, everything that will keep the younger ones amused if the weather isn't too inviting!

This bedroom also benefits from a DVD player making it ideal for guests wanting an early night no matter what age.

Just outside the door of this cottage are tea rooms, restaurants, museums and antique shops.

Only a few steps away are the popular cobbled streets that Rye is famous for along with its ancient houses with quirky names.

Mermaid Street is often chosen as the setting for films and TV programmes and with so much character oozing from every twist and turn in this beautiful town, you will soon discover why after just a few minutes of strolling the lanes.

Winter or summer, rain or sunshine, Rye House is an ideal holiday choice time and time again.

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.
