    Lovely cottage in a fabulous location Bit of a problem with water leakages but thanks to the fantastic staff this has all been sorted

    We are pleased you loved our cottage. Unfortunately your stay coincided with storm Ciaran causing heavy rain and winds of up to 100mph. Although our 15th century cottage is extremely well maintained the high winds caused a minor leak to the fireplace. Hopefully this didn’t cause to much inconvenience. Property Owner

  • "Lovely characterful cottage in excellent location."

    Have to get used to passers-by staring in the windows as they admire the 14th century property. The stairs to the bedrooms are steep and there are low beams, so need to be careful with night-time visits to the downstairs toilet. We really enjoyed our stay and it was such a privilege to step back in time but with all the well equipped quality modern facilities.

    We are so please you enjoyed staying in our quirky cottage. Church Square is such a beautifully historic area of Rye that people can’t resist having a good look and taking lots of photos. Thank you for your kind feedback. We hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful old cottage tastefully and carefully adapted to suit modern living."

    Everything was of a high standard. Beds were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great location in a quiet lane Town shops and cafes were all within a couple of minutes walk.

    Thank you so much for the amazing feedback. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful and comfortable property and we loved it."

    The location couldn’t be any better. The standard of the fixtures, fittings, linen, towels, shower-room and kitchen appliances made a real difference and it didn’t feel like a property rental. The small outside space (although not mentioned in the description) was a little outside haven for evening drinks. We will definitely be back, can’t say enough nice things about it!

    Thank you so much for the amazing feedback. We are so pleased that you liked our cottage. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner

The property

Resting at the heart of the historic town of Rye in East Sussex is Church View.

This idyllic, 15th-century, Grade II listed cottage benefits from a fabulous location in the heart of a town steeped in history with local amenities just paces away, as well a breath-taking and characterful interior showcasing iconic, white-washed walls adorned with original wooden beams and two well-appointed bedrooms; perfect for couples, small families or friends looking to explore Rye, East Sussex and the coast.

Enter into Church View to find the sitting room, then discover the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up a hearty meal that the whole group can enjoy in the living/dining room, later snuggle up in front of the Smart TV on the plush sofa and while the evening away.

When yawning begins, head to the ground-floor shower room to wash away the day’s adventures before climbing the stairs to slope off to sleep in the double bedroom.

From the double bedroom, take the stairs to reach the second-floor twin room, ideal for the little ones.

If you can tear yourself away from this historic bolthole, explore the centre of Rye where you can pick up all your necessities at the local store before enjoying a well-earned meal at pubs like The Ypres Castle Inn, the Old Bell Rye or savour a sophisticated evening in The Grapevine Champagne and Jazz Bar.

History forms the foundation of town and guests can immerse themselves in the past at the Rye Heritage Centre, the National Trust Lamb House which is the former home of author Henry James, Rye Castle Museum or the impressive ruins of the Tudor Camber Castle which runs monthly guided tours.

On sunny days, make your way to the coast to discover the golden shores of Camber Sands where you can explore 2 miles of dunes and shoreline, breath-taking views across the English Channel and a variety of thrilling watersports.

Make cherished memories at Church View.

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.

Note: There are extremely steep stairs in this property due to its age, please take care and supervise children.
