    “The heart of rye is a lovely flat in a fantastic location but it could be better, the master bedroom needed dusting & the toilet seat slipped sideways every time you sat on it, a small welcome pack would have been nice & perhaps some washing up liquid.”

    None of these things would have cost much & would have made a difference. The picture of the garden was not accurate as it was quite overgrown with a pond containing green water so we didn’t sit outside at all. We still enjoyed our holiday but was a little disappointed as we expected it to be a bit better at that price.

The property

This stunning first floor, apartment sits in the centre of the historic town of Rye, and offers stunning views down into the town and over distant fields.

Beautifully restored by the owner, this Grade ll listed apartment has charm and character in abundance, from the warm welcome of the woodburner in the sitting room with its array of large comfy chairs and sofas, to the draw of the four poster bed in the master bedroom that gives guests the chance to indulge in long lie-ins when on a romantic weekend away.

The kitchen, always said to be the heart of the home, really lives up to the title in this lovely apartment.

Whether rustling up a quick lunch or preparing a delicious dinner, guests can still gather together and chat over the day’s events with a coffee (straight from the coffee machine) or a glass of wine, while sitting in the alcove seat.

Each of the bedrooms offer style and elegance with standards expected from a boutique hotel.

The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room, so whether holidaying with friends or family, privacy and space is guaranteed.

The Heart of Rye, as its name suggests, is located in this Cinque Ports Citadel so everything to make your vacation a success is right on your doorstep.

Whether it is browsing the shops, sampling the local ales and wines in one of the many pubs, or indulging in gastronomic meals in one of the numerous restaurants that Rye has tucked away along its quaint and cobbled streets, you will never have more than a few steps to take.

Just a short distance away is Camber Sands where you can laze and relax on golden beaches and listen to waves as they lap the shoreline.

Alternatively, for somewhere more lively and with lots of music and nightlife, take a trip into Hastings further along the coast.

Rye is a perfect spot for a holiday for everyone at any time of the year.

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.
