A Lovely Romantic Cottage With Real Fire In Ancient Cinque Port Of Rye
Dating from the 18th Century, and situated in picturesque East Street in the centre of Rye, Froglets is a most charming Grade Two listed cottage.
Unusually spacious, it comfortably sleeps up to six people , and is one of the few three-bedroom cottages to be found in the Rye Citadel.
Offering the best of old world charm coupled with all modern amenities,
Froglet’s cosy sitting room even has a traditional brick fireplace providing guests with warming, real log fires ( an initial supply of logs and coal is provided in winter months ).
Full of delightful quality furnishings, comfortable beds and sofas, and numerous antiques, Froglets offers everything to ensure our guests enjoyment and comfort – TV’s, Video & DVD Player, CD Player, Radio and free WiFi access.
The spacious kitchen-breakfast room is fully fitted and equipped with
all contemporary utilities - oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, and an extensive range of cooking equipment and tableware. The antique pine table easily sits six people for breakfast.
Unlike many ancient cottages, the three bedrooms are located on the first floor, and are easily accessed by a traditional staircase. This gives the cottage the added advantage of making it safe and suitable for all age groups.
All of the bedrooms are charming and comfortably furnished with generous storage space. Two of them have double beds and TV, and the third bedroom offers a single bed which can be extended to a double if required.
Located on the first floor, the bright family bathroom features a full size bath with mixer taps and shower attachment, low level toilet and hand basin.
Converted from the old pantry, there is a small characterful study off the sitting room, with writing desk and shelves, games, cards and reading books for guests entertainment.
Leading to the back courtyard, is a spacious hallway offering plenty of space for storing beach and holidays items (Coats, shoes, boots etc .) There is also a book case with a good selection of books for keen readers.
At the rear of the cottage is a small walled courtyard area, with table and chairs – a perfect place to relax in good weather. (Also a useful space for drying clothes and other items.)
There is some limited parking outside the cottage.
Froglets is a perfect base for exploring Rye!

Why michael trevillion chose East Sussex
My relationship with Froglets Cottage goes back 20 years to when my wife and I used to rent it from the previous owners for family holidays. We particularly loved staying there for Xmas ., Rye is the best place for winter holidays and sitting around the roaring fire at Froglets can not be beat on a chilly evening.
What makes this cottage unique
Froglets is really friendly and cosy without being dark and cramped which a lot of the lovely old properties in Rye can be.

Cosy retreat in the centre of Rye
Froglets Cottage is an extremely comfortable and cosy cottage. It is very clean, in an excellent location in the centre of beautiful Rye and has everything you need, including a bottle of wine very generously left for us on arrival! Communication with Michael was excellent and he recommended some great places to eat. 6 of us spent a wonderful long weekend at Froglets and were all extremely comfortable. We highly recommend it to anyone coming to Rye.
My wife and I and our two daughters and partners, stayed in Froglets to celebrate my parents in-laws diamond wedding, the cottage was great, very clean, warm with comfortable beds and lots of towels and toiletries, well equipped kitchen with wine and fresh flowers to welcome us.
