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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing character property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay with our 2 year old son. Cottage is in a perfect location for shops, pubs, drive to beaches. Everything we needed in the cottage was there. We will definitely be back.

Generally good

  • 3 of 5

We liked the cottage and in particular the location which is very central and although the parking is a challenge we were aware of this before arriving and the solutions are highly workable and convenient. We did however feel that the cottage had some areas - shelving either side of the chimney, TV base, window ledge etc - that hadn't had a clean in some time which we would have liked to have seen. We also thought that wifi would have been highly useful as its seen more of an essential nowadays, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area as we were, although the mobile signal is very good. So overall a good stay which we enjoyed in a great location just in requirement of a few tweaks and certainly worth considering.

A real little gem in the heart of Rye

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic Bank Holiday stay in this charming cottage in Rye. This was the first time we had stayed in the area and were staying in Rye for a junior weekend rugby festival just outside the town. The cottage was the perfect retreat to come back to and relax after standing in a windy field for two days! Our two boys loved the cottage and their attic room with a winding staircase! Well equipped, exceptionally clean and just perfect for the four of us to relax, before heading out in the evening for a bite to eat and drink. Highly recommended.

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
