You enter the cottage into a small hallway with stairs leading up to the bedrooms and a door leading to the open plan living area. There is a fully fitted kitchen to the front of the property, with everything you could possibly need during your stay, including microwave and washing machine. There is a dining area with table and chairs to comfortably seat four. The lounge area has a sofa and arm chair with plenty of cushions and throws to make this a cosy spot to relax. There is a Smart TV & wifi available, for planning your days out or to use whilst snuggling up on cold evenings after a day exploring. Just off the lounge is a small snug, perfect for those quiet moments or for settling down with a good book. French doors lead to an enclosed terrace with outside table and chairs for alfresco dining, a morning brew or a glass of wine in the evening.

The first floor has a double bedroom to the rear and has been furnished with good quality linen, bed sides lamps and comfy cushions.

All bedrooms have full length mirrors and there is a hairdryer provided, so one less thing to pack.

For those travelling with young children, there is a travel cot & folding high chair available on request. Although the cottage is family friendly we do ask that guests with young children take particular care when exiting the property, as there is only a narrow path in front of the cottage and the road is busy.

As is commonplace in Rye, the cottage does not come with parking but you are only five minutes from the nearest council car park and a gentle ten minute stroll from free on road parking.

Curlew House is perfectly positioned for enjoying all that Rye has to offer, you are only moments away from good pubs, restaurants and the towns medieval history.

Rye and beyond

Always a good start to any visit to Rye is the town’s Heritage Centre. Here you can watch the Town Model's 'Sound and Light' show, which goes into detail about the history and the colourful past of Rye and it's inhabitants, or wander upstairs and play the ‘Old Penny Pier Machines’ and giggle at the ‘Laughing Sailor”. If antiques interest you, then visit the Strand Quay where you can try your hand at bartering and grab yourself a bargain! Rye benefits from a good selection of independent boutiques and coffee/tea shops, to enjoy at your leisure.The town has its very own boutique cinema, ‘The Kino’ in Lion Street, so on those chilled out evenings the chance to catch the latest big movie. Camber Sands is three miles away and can be reached by a cycle path all the way from Rye to the beach if you wish to walk or cycle. There is a regular bus service from Rye to Camber during the week, running approximately every thirty minutes, on Sunday's the wait may be a little longer. The beach is sandy and goes for miles with large sand dunes to shelter in, if there is a seabreeze. The waters are shallow and during the summer months life guards patrol the bathing waters.

The beach is sandy and goes for miles with large sand dunes to shelter in, if there is a seabreeze. The waters are shallow and during the summer months life guards patrol the bathing waters.

The town of Winchelsea is a 10 minute drive away and, like Rye, has a rich history and links to the days of smugglers. One of the many cellar tours that take place during the year, is a worthy visit and a chance to see parts of the town that are not normally on show. With far reaching views over the marshes and out to sea, it really is a pleasant way to spend a few hours and for the keen walkers, the chance to pick up the 1066 route.

Just 10 minutes drive away is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you can walk along the sea wall and out on to the marshes to enjoy the flora and fauna. You can choose to walk out to Camber Castle, originally located on a shingle spit and where once it protected the towns of Rye and Winchelsea before the sea receded. Although no longer open to visitors, it is still a striking landmark worth a visit.

The towns of Hastings and Ashford are around a 30 minute drive away and here you can get mainline trains to London if you wish to explore the capital for a day. If you would like to take a day trip to the continent, the Eurostar can be picked up from Ashford International Station and trains to Paris, Lille and Brussels are available. Alternatively, the ferries run from Dover, just 50 minutes away or the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone, a 40 minute drive.

stylish comfortable house but on a very busy road

"When we arrived we were not sure we were at the correct address as the picture on the website is of the upstairs bedroom balcony not the front door ! The house is on a very busy road and therefore not suitable for small children. That said the house was clean and tidy and the kitchen well stocked. It was a nice touch to find milk in the fridge and a selection of coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits on our arrival. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom spacious . Toiletries provided in the bathroom were again a nice touch. The house seemed to have been recently decorated but there were a couple of minor issues- the bathroom lock did not work and there was no mirror in the bathroom. Overall good value for money but cannot recommend it purely because of the busy road outside."

Owner reply: I am delighted you had a comfortable stay. Every effort has been made to ensure you received a good welcome, which I am glad you enjoyed. The bathroom minor details will of course be remedied. It might be helpful to highlight that the property description does say that it is on a busy road, however this allows visitors to be at the centre of the town in minutes, enjoying the Ypres Tower at the Citadel, St Mary?s Church, restaurants and coffee shops in only a short walk. The front view of the property is also on the website, which overlooks the Town Salts. Thank you for your positive feedback on Curlew House.
