About Richard Nutting

Chesterfield Cottage is owned by my partner Chris and myself.

Chris works in the print industry and I work in the IT/Finance industries.

Richard Nutting purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Richard Nutting chose East Sussex

We had been escaping to Rye from our busy lives in London for years, purchasing Chesterfield Cottage in 2010. After some extensive renovations to the kitchen and bathroom we have been using it as our home away from home, to relax and recharge our batteries.

There is always something going on in the town and local area, amazing beaches, walks and quiet roads to cycle.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is perfectly placed to enjoy the tea rooms, antique shops, pubs and restaurants that Rye has to offer.

Old World Charm In The Heart Of Rye

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay at a well equipped cottage, full of old world charm, in the heart of Rye.

(Lack of Wifi & BBC TV the only drawbacks).

Owner's Response: Hi Greg, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Chesterfield Cottage. Im sorry the BBC channels dropped from the TV, im not sure if the areal booster had an issue or if it was atmospherics, but I've re-tuned and they are back. We don't offer WiFi at the moment, but I hope you found one of the many bars and cafes that offer free access. Thanks for staying and I hope you'll come back again. Richard

Great place in fantastic Rye!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice quirky property! Stairs were interesting but added to the character! The property was very well placed to explore Rye and it had everything ( except wi fi - and poor TVs reception. Which we put down to the age of the property/ thickness of walks!?

Mind your head!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is ideally situated in the heart of Rye just round the corner from the Landgate. It is full of character. The kitchen is well equipped and the shower is good. But it is very small and the stairs are difficult for anyone large or with restricted mobility. There were 3 of us. With 4 would be v crowded. Can especially recommend Webbes restaurant a few yards away. Richard, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived (earlier than we should have done!)

Great little cottage in the heart of historic Rye

  • 4 of 5

Great little cottage in the heart of historic Rye. We stayed for a short break and it was perfect. Rye has so much history and the surrounding countryside has so much to explore; Camber sands was beautiful as always, Bodiam Castle is fantastic. We will be back as we have so much more to find.

Nice little cottage in a good central location.

Nice park for the dog only two minutes away but nice and central to the town. Small but practical although parking wasn't easy.

The town of Rye has a unique charm and a High Street full of individual tea rooms, antique shops, boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

There is a Farmers Market on Wednesday and a weekly market on Thursdays. The town also has two fish mongers located on the wharf where you can purchase the freshest of fish just off the boats.

Ryes position in East Sussex makes a great base for exploring the 1066 countryside with its many historic towns and surrounding coast.
