Overview

About the property

Cottage in Rye, Sussex, England - 2 Minute Walk Up The Steps To The Ancient Landgate Of Rye And The Famous Cobbled Citadel

This lovely little detached cottage with its own private parking right outside is ideal for a long weekend or a longer stay. With its four poster bed in the main bedroom with views across the Salts, the cosy twin bedroom, fully fitted kitchen, light and airy sitting room and atmospheric dining room is perfect! The colourful garden on 2 terraces again has perfect views and yet so near to the town.

The beds are equipped with freshly laundered Egyptian cotton sheets, with fluffy towelling robes and fluffy matching cotton towels - all ready for you to enjoy.

There is everything you could possibly want at Salts Cottage - Freeview TV, free WiFi, washer/drier, dishwasher, 'proper cooker', gas central heating to keep you toastie warm, fridge freezer and ample cooking pots, crockery, cutlery and glasses. Also for the beach there is a fully fitted picnic basket, rug and coolbag.

There will be a welcome bottle of bubbly awaiting you in the fridge on your arrival as well as breakfast for your first morning which can be taken in the dining room with it's oval antique table or alternatively on the lower terrace surrounded with an abundance of pretty flowers and plants.

The upper terrace also has a table, chairs, parasol and 2 sunloungers - ideal for those glasses of vino - again with a mass of plants and shrubs!!

Rye itself, is but a hop and a skip up the steps by the side of the cottage - and you then in the hub of this lovely quirky town with its antique shops, tearooms, designer shops and the most delectable deli (no need to cook at Salts Cottage!) There are numerous restaurants for lunch and dinner as well as Haydens for a slap up breakfast.

There is always something going on in Rye - Bonfire night is very popular with its amazing display of fireworks - so perfect from Salts Cottage - usually the Saturday after November 5th. Then there Rye Scallop Week in February where you can eat scallops at practically every eaterie in different recipes. There is a jazz festival and many many more activities in Rye!

You are only 10 minutes by car to the famous Camber Sands with miles of sandy beach, and don't forget the picnic basket filled with yummy Rye deli food!! You can walk to Camber along the footpath - takes about an hour.

As you know - you can bring your Pooches - and there are so many walks around Rye and the immediate countryside - with plenty of welcoming pubs in the country who all accept dogs.

If you want to go further a field by car, you can explore all the National Trust houses and gardens as there are so many in the South East, as well as popping across to France for the day - about 40 minutes to the Channel Tunnel with 3 crossings an hour. Stock up with good wine at knock down prices - majesticinfrance is a good website and their outlet is right near the tunnel in Calais.

Or alternatively - catch the train from Rye to Ashford and go on Eurostar to Paris or Brussels for lunch!!!

The train from Rye will take you to Ashford, Hastings, Eastbourne and Brighton - a good idea rather than driving and having to park - especially in Brighton!!

About sally symmons

I live 10 minutes away from Salts Cottage and my husband and I often pop down to the cottage for the night and sample some of the culinary delights in the various restaurants and it is so pleasant to be able to walk back without worrying about driving

sally symmons purchased this cottage in 2014

Why sally symmons chose East Sussex

We have a house near Rye but decided to have a bolt hole actually in the ancients town of Rye, so when Salt Cottage came on the market we snapped it up as it suited our needs perfectly, being so near to all the action and yet with the lovely view across the Salts and towards the marshes from the bedroom, sitting room window and upper terrace.

What makes this cottage unique

The major benefit is of having one's own private parking space and accessibility to the town and to the beach at Camber. Also to be able to bring one's doggies as the garden is completely fenced and there is a lovely green across the road for them to run around in. Also there is a playground for children next to the green.

A lovely place from which to explore Rye and Sussex

  • 5 of 5

Sally was a great host. We had a fantastic welcome basket that I can comfortably say is the best we have ever received. The house is well appointed and within easy walking distance of everything Rye has to offer. The steps up to main centre are a matter or yards away, and the park is right across the road. Sally also recommended a fresh fish shop just beyond the park and they helped us have a fantastic home cooked dinner one night which we ate on one of the home's two terraces.

Having parking right outside is a real bonus for the area too. It let us explore the beaches at Camber and Winchelsea, have a day pottering around Hastings (the old town is especially nice) and a trip to Battle to give the children a decent history lesson. And with the added bonus that all were puppy friendly (as was so much of Rye).

We had a great short break and would recommend Sally's hospitality, the home and the area very highly.

Relax in Rye

  • 4 of 5

An extremely comfortable cottage. Well appointed, with every need catered for. The hamper of goodies was very extensive. It's position makes it very handy for the town, however, as it is situated on a busy main road the trafiic noise is intrusive.

Owner's Response: I am glad you liked the cottage but I'm afraid I really can't do anything about the traffic - maybe in the future there will be a much needed bypass!! Sally

Very well equipped cottage in convenient location

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was nicely decorated and very well equipped. the hamper on arrival had home made jam, fresh eggs, marmalade and a bottle of prosecco in the fridge amongst other things. The cottage does suffer from traffic noise and the inviting bed proved to have such a soft mattress that we had to swap rooms with my father as we both have bad backs. There are also a few steps and the roof slopes over the shower so less suitable with elderly parents. The little terraces were lovely to sit out on and secluded for sunbathing.

Owner's Response: Again - there is nothing I can do about the traffic - and again - some people like a soft bed and others a hard - sorry about the steps and roof slope over the bath - nothing I can do about that (other than rebuild the cottage!!) Glad you enjoyed the rest !! Sally

Good location in a quaint cottage

  • 3 of 5

Lovely welcome pack on arrival, greatly appreciated. Well equipped cottage with many extras, small dishwasher washing machine, coffee maker etc. The downside was the noise from the very busy road and the main bed was very soft causing a dip in the middle.

Owner's Response: Not an awful lot I can do about the traffic - it is noisy everywhere in Rye!! And I can't please everyone with the bed - some like it soft and some hard - I personally chose the expensive orthopaedic mattress for my back. Other than that I am delighted that you appreciated the cottage. Sally

charming

  • 5 of 5

what a lovely little cottage, everything is on your doorstep, the cottage is so well equipped I was so impressed and then Sally left a lovely hamper with just about everything in it and personal touches with her home made jam and marmalade . We were so indulged. Sally even left a treat for our dog Brodie. The parking space is definitely a plus.

Thank you so much we will definitely be back again if you will have us :)

Further Details:

There are many interesting and eclectic shops and restaurants in Rye itself. A good Supermarket run by the Jempson family (closed on a Sunday) a super deli,greengrocer, butcher etc etc - as well as Costcutters near Salt Cottage. The best of all is the fishmarket opposite Salt Cottage across the green - fresh crabs, lobsters and of course the famous Rye Bay Scallops - caught that very morning. There is a thriving bowls club opposite the house and now a newly opened Kino cinema where you can sit comfortably with a drink and watch the latest digital films! Of course there are many antique and curio shops as well as a newly opened second hand designer clothes shop.
