Invest in Rye
When looking for a location to invest in a holiday cottage, the quiet, pretty, medieval town of Rye is always a good bet. Cobbled streets, bags of history, the odd tale of smugglers past and many a story of ghosts sighted, making the ghost tour with the The Heritage Centre a popular tour for many of our holiday cottage guests.
With the high speed train from St Pancras Station, London to Ashford International making journey times to Rye just over an hour and a half from the capital, its no wonder why so many Londoners are deciding to buy a second home in the Sussex town. With Rye’s closeness to the travel hubs in the south east, Euro tunnel only 45 minutes away, the port of Dover less than an hour and the Euro Star in Ashford, just 30 minutes from Rye, making it a popular holiday destination for our friends travelling from Europe too. All helping to boost the vibrant self catering market in the town.
Rye has one of the lucky High Streets that is bucking the trend with its vibrant, independent retailers and independent coffee houses and tea rooms, no chains here! Varied and good restaurants from the Tuscan Kitchen where you can eat authentic Italian cuisine, Hoof, your gourmet burger joint, The Globe, sourcing local fresh ingredients in a relaxed, cosy pub setting and, just three miles out of town in the seaside village of Camber Sands, The Gallivant, a beach styled bistro serving locally sourced ingredients with a touch of class.
