Lovely quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a great three night stay in Rye & the cottage was everything we had hoped for and more. The cottage had everything that you needed and even extra little finishing touches. It was lovely to come back in the evenings and to put on the log burner. The location was spot on and the town itself just blew us away with its history. Will definitely come back to both the town & the cottage....Thank you Richard

A charming 16th century cottage in historic Rye

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cosy cottage from the 3rd to the 6th of November 2016. The booking process through owners direct was hassle free and the owner Richard answered all are queries very promptly and was a mine of information about Rye. The cottage is ideally located within easy reach of the railway station, shops, pubs & restaurants, and the beautiful East Sussex countryside. The cottage is well equipped (minus wifi) and has a great wood burning stove. The low ceilings would challenge anyone over 6ft but this is all part of the charm of the cottage. We managed to sample the food and drink at several of the local pubs and restaurants and found all of them very good especially the Globe in Marsh, Webbe's fish cafe and the Amberette. All in all we had a lovely time and hope to visit Rye and stay at this cottage in the future.

Enjoyable stay in a quirky cottage

  • 4 of 5

The property description is accurate. We stayed 3 nights and dined in every night. It has the minimum requirements for cooking with a useful oven. There is a fishmonger and a supermarket nearby. Car parking is quite easy and cheap. The property was very clean and is very well located in the centre of Rye, with a great pub (Queen's Head) round the corner. The cottage is quite small but perfectly adequate for 4 adults and a baby. The double bed can feel a little hard for some. Care is needed when going down the staircase. The owner was very proactive and provided useful information. We enjoyed our time there and would probably stay at the cottage again.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : The Queens Head Inn at 100 Metres Nearest Golf : Rye Golf Club at 4.5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Rye Train Station at 350 Metres Nearest Motorway : M20, Junction 10 at 30 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Webbs Fish Cafe at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : Camber Sands / Winchelsea Beach at 6 Kilometres Car: not necessary

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. Whether you decide on the stunning stretch of sand and dunes at Camber or the rugged pebbles beaches of Rye Harbour, Winchelsea or Pett Level, they’re all on your doorstep and can reached from the cottage on foot, by bicycle (NCR2 run from Camber to Brighton) or by car.

The Rye Harbour Nature Reserve is approximately 1.4 miles south of the town. There is a network of foot paths that provide easy waling access from Rye or you can park for free at Rye Harbour. There are five hides (with wheelchair access) in the reserve providing a wonderful view of the inhabitants of the many habitats, including wetlands, shingle ridges, sand, marsh and woodland. It is home to a wide range of species, including many considered rare or endangered in Britain.

Travel:

By car: Travelling from London by car takes approx 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Either via M25 / M20 or the more scenic route M25 / A21. The cottage doesn’t have an allocated parking space but there are plenty of on street bays or Pay & Display options available.

By train: HS1 train from St Pancras International to Ashford International takes 38 minutes and it's then just 25 minutes to Rye on the Marsh link.
