Guestbook comments from the owner

just returned from a beautiful week in Rye which is an incredible town full of character and ancient history . We stayed at Seaview Cottage . So first let's start with the negatives about our accommodation . There that's done now the positives . Well equipped , immaculately clean , spacious with the most incredible views from the windows . Situated at the top of Rye it doesn't get any better. Jason & Caroline really have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. Our dog even had his own welcome pack of chews , bed , bowls , ball and poo bags. Never had that fir home before . The bathroom is large and bright again immaculately clean . The bedroom is so comfortable , had no trouble sleeping and waking up to the sun streaming in through the curtains was a joy. The nesting house martins outside the window added a special treat. If your looking for a place to stay look no further , excellent location , perfect hosts with a beautiful cottage . There really is nothing also to add . Except thank you . Oh and Caroline whatever you wash the bed linen , towels and fleeces always leaves a very pleasant smell where ever you are .

Fantastic. Ideal for short break away

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay with our small dog Rosie. Had a warm welcome from Caroline & Jason. Nice extra touches of milk, bread, eggs. Rosie even had her own bed and treats. The cottage is beautiful, very clean and well equipped with stunning views. We are looking forward to booking again.

Thank you

Extremely comfortable and attractive cottage in a superb location in the lovely town of Rye

  • 5 of 5

Seaview Cottage was exactly as it was described and photographed for the VRBO website. It was clean, bright, quiet, comfortable, and well-equipped with all that anyone could want during a short stay or a long one, and the views from the windows are truly superb. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to light a fire during winter evenings and the fireplace functioned well! The location of the cottage in the heart of historic Rye could not be bettered. Prior to booking, communications with the owner were helpful, friendly and welcoming, and onsite, Jason and Caroline went out of their way to provide a warm welcome and to fulfill any requests for information or assistance. A sincere thank- you to both of them. Rye is a charming town with an abundance of restaurants, beautiful buildings, and interesting shops, and I don’t hesitate to recommend Seaview Cottage and Rye as

a perfect getaway for a single person, couple, or a family. An unexpected pleasure was the proximity of Kino cinema just steps away from the cottage, where one can

have a drink or a light meal in addition to seeing newly released films. Children’s films are screened during school holidays. Perfect for a wet or cold day!

Seaview Cottage is fully deserving of the positive reviews it receives.

A Charming Cottage Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Seaview Cottage for two nights just after Easter 2018. The views from the lounge and bedroom are spectacular. The cottage itself, on two storeys, was clean, well-equipped and well maintained. An all-round wonderful place to stay.

Peaceful retreat with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, quiet "half house" in the backstreets of Rye, close by St. Mary's Church.

Beautifully appointed lounge with stunning views over Walland Marsh.

Compact kitchen area with all that's needed for a holiday home.

Rather steep staircase, though it's my fault for having knackered knees, leading to huge bathroom and comfortable double bedroom, again with great Vista.

All in all, a great find.

Camber Sands is just a couple of miles away with its beautiful sandy beaches and dunes. Winchelsea Beach is a couple of miles in the other direction about a 10 minute drive away and Hastings Seafront is 25 minutes away by car. Rye Harbour is within walking distance.


No car is needed. The cottage is a few minutes walk to a railway station and buses. It is very easy to reach Brighton, Hastings, Ashford - for the Eurostar, and London.
