Why Connie Johnston chose Winchelsea

We fell in love with the riverside location & widespread rural views towards Rye. The property is also located within a few hundred yards of Rye Nature Reserve of which a large part is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) & a special protected area (SPA).

What makes this chalet unique

Tranquility. Riverside & countryside views. Easy access to the beach & local amenities. This popular coastal village of Winchelsea Beach has a relaxed & friendly atmosphere.

A relaxing riverside retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a week in Connie's annex and were very pleased to find that the description of the property was accurate; it was a stone's throw from the river Brede and the views across to Rye were just lovely.

The annex itself was very comfortable, with everything we needed. The bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage and had a marvellous view of the river. The kitchen was well equipped and although we did very little cooking the range cooker was a pleasure to use.

The house itself was well placed for walks as there were footpaths in all directions, including ones to the beach, to Rye, and to the Royal Military Canal - all within minutes of our doorstep.

The road was quiet, but a pub and several shops were ten minutes walk away and there was a bus stop close by.

Although we shared the decking with the owners, it was a very long riverside garden and we didn't feel overlooked at all. Connie and her husband were the perfect hosts - super- friendly and informative, but respectful of our privacy. It was a lovely holiday and we hope to return.

All you could want

Comfortable, well-equipped and homely. Lots of nature-spotting from the riverside decking and fantastic footpath network virtually from the door. Connie & Clem were friendly and helpful.

Relaxing by the river

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well presented with great outdoor space and has all the home comforts that you need. We were made to feel very welcome (appreciated the goodies on arrival). Lovely walk over the fields to Rye. Stunning views and a glorious sunset made each day a pleasure and we will be going back in the near future to enjoy this little gem by the river. The annex had all the home comforts which made the stay even more pleasurable topped off by Connie & Clem who were the perfect host from start to finish.

A really relaxed break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days and from the outset Connie and Clemm made us feel extremely welcome. The location was ideal for a quiet relaxing break plus an ideal centre for walking and exploring the local area. Additionally all required amenities are located close by.

The cottage had everything you needed and was clean comfortable and warm. It was ideal to be able to sit out by the river and enjoy the views and wildlife.

Connie and Clemm made sure we enjoyed our time there and were perfect hosts. We will recommend the cottage to family and friends

and will return. We thank Connie and Clemm for all their hospitallity.
