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!"
