Weekend in Rye
"Brilliant time in Rye. House was amazing right in centre of town. Very clean and comfortable. Everything you needed. Nice courtyard garden. Thanks for an amazing stay. "
A wonderful British holiday!
"Crown Cottage in Rye was perfect. With two large double bedrooms we had plenty of space and the garden patio area was such a bonus! Every morning we were able to sit outside and plan for the day. The cottage is in a prime location right in the centre of Rye, we found gorgeous places to eat and it was really helpful having the supermarket less than ten minutes walk away. The cottage is an easy drive to Camber sands and we had lovely days out as Rye was a great place to walk and drive from. The local Kino cinema was a bonus on the only drizzly day and going up the church tower was a must! The cottage itself made us feel right at home, cooking utensils and crockery were plentiful meaning we could cook at home very very easily. Everything was clean, comfortable and well presented. I couldn't fault it, and I would definitely return."
"We enjoyed our time in Crown Cottage a lot. Nice appartment for small families. Has everything you need! Very clean, towels and bed stuff fresh and perfect. The place is perfect, you reach the shops etc in a few minutes, also the trainstation, so you can reach every place at this coast you want. We really recommend this place!"
From a quiet street just off the High Street, you step into the light and airy lounge. The blend of classic and modern, with its original fireplace, period details and comfy sofas make for a relaxing setting for four, or a cosy place for two. A couple of steps up, the dining room provides a comfortable space for entertaining big enough for four.
The galley kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need for your holiday catering. Off the kitchen is a cloakroom and the glazed door leading to the courtyard garden. The walled, sun trap garden has raised planted flower beds, outside table and seating, lighting and is a quiet spot for lazy breakfasts or enjoying a evening glass of wine or a meal.
From the dining room, stairs lead up to two double bedrooms. The front bedroom, with a king size bed, is comfortable, spacious and light, with ample storage space. The back bedroom is slightly smaller with a double bed, and overlooks the garden and rooftops of Rye. The bathroom is accessed from the back bedroom and you have a bath, a modern overhead shower, WC and hand basin. There is a second WC downstairs.
Steep stairs from the dining room lead down to the basement TV/games room, the perfect hideout for the children in the party. A TV/DVD and a selection of films, books and board games have been provided to fill any spare time between days out.
Your welcome pack from the owner is made up of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, handmade chocolate and a bottle of award winning Chapel Down wine – an excellent way to start your holiday or short break.
There is some parking outside the cottage with time limitation but local car parks are only a few minutes’ walk and are inexpensive. Full details will be provided on booking. The central location means that nothing in Rye is more then a short walk
Any day arrival may be possible outside of peak season, so please enquire by email or telephone.
An ancient town of fishermen and smugglers, Rye is steeped in history and a character all of its own. Rye enjoys a unique range of shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, and Crown Cottage is in an ideal position to enjoy all of these. Whether you come for the Art festival, Scallop festival, Jazz and Blues festival, the famous bonfire and firework display, or perhaps some Christmas shopping, nothing is ever more than a few minutes’ walk.
Rye Museum is directly next door and the church, with its famous Quarter Boys and fantastic views from the tower, is a couple of hundred yards. In every direction there are places to eat and drink or you can meander down the many antique shops in the Strand Quay and hunt out a bargain!
Just ten minutes’ drive away is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you can walk along the sea wall and out on to marshes to enjoy the flora and fauna, or to Camber Castle, which once protected the towns of Rye and Winchelsea.
The award winning beach of Camber Sands is also a short drive away and has miles of sandy beach and dunes to explore. Or visit the rock pools at low tide on the pebbly beach at Pett Level, just a ten minute drive from Rye.
The towns of Hastings and Ashford are around a thirty minute drive or short train ride away. From Ashford, trains to London St Pancras take only 38 minutes, so you can enjoy a day exploring the capital. The Eurostar can be picked up from Ashford, and trains to Paris, Lille and Bruges are available. Alternatively, the ferries run from Dover, just 45 minutes away or the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone, a 45 minute drive.
