  • "Just a thought - getting from the 2nd floor bedroom to the bathroom in the night is tricky, a better banister would help."

    Possible to instal an en suite WC up there?? Otherwise absolutely brilliant.

  • "Rye House is a lovely and comfortable house, home from home."

    The twin room ideal for children. It is situated very close to the town, bars and restaurants. No back garden. But a lovely place to sit and enjoy the estuary and boats a few hundred meters away. Would love to go back to the house again.

    The house is very well located, 5 minutes walk from the supermarket and easy access to the old town. For our party of 5, it was well equipped and not too noisy. The parking space was a useful bonus. All in all thoroughly recommended.

  • "We didn't have wifi for 5 days ."

    The problem was down to the internet provider not the owners, thay were as quick as they could to fix the problem and always informed me of the current situation. Need more information on that you need to take the bin out , didn't know I could open the windows in the loft/roof that needs explaining more. Everything else was beyond my expertation for the price of this fantastic house in the town of Rye.

  • "We had a most comfortable stay at Rye House."

    Everything had been provided including some wine, milk and cookies. The property is scrupulously clean and perfectly situated to enjoy Rye on foot; we had a wonderful holiday and we would highly recommend it. The only things to be aware of is that it can be intermittently noisy if you like to have the windows open at nighttime.

  • "Very nice cottage, clean, comfortable, well equipped kitchen, bathrooms ok, nice bedrooms."

    We appreciated the little touches upon our arrival, as well as the opportunity to arrive earlier in the day. A big plus, considering the location really in town is the attached parking lot, large enough for a large family car. We were not at all bothered by the noise, given the proximity of the pub.   in short, I think we'll come back next year

  • "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!

    It was immaculate and suited our needs perfectly. The location is ideal for the centre of town and the off street parking was essential for the bonfire weekend.

  • "Great position in Rye."

    The house was spotless and the facilities were great. The only thing that we could find wrong which we were warned about was the Pub behind the house which was noisy on Friday and Saturday nights but only really affected the back bedroom. Otherwise perfect.

    Fantastic position in the centre of Rye. The pub next door,added to our experience because even though there was loud music & live band playing, it was our kind of music so we could sing along. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again,in fact we can't wait !!

  • "The accommodation would have been perfect in every way but it was let down badly by the pub next door."

    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 ensuite room was the quietest but the other two bedrooms suffered badly. A big shame as an otherwise perfect location and property.

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.

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

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.

About the location

RYE

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.
