Luxury relaxing break
"This is a very stylish property with all your needs catered for. Has many luxury touches and creates a relaxing environment for a great break. The location provides great options for walking into Rye with a vast array of good restaurants within 5 - 10 mins. We really enjoy the local walks and variety of beaches and wildlife in the area and would recommend Little Willows."
The property has been finished to a very high standard and your every need is catered for. Set over three floors, Little Willow has a modern, contemporary feel, with a touch of luxury. Molton Brown toiletries in all the bathrooms, soft fluffy towels and a large welcome basket to get your stay off to a good start.
The ground floor has a twin bedroom which has been brightly decorated and soft furnishings to provide a cosy, elegant feel. Doors out onto the enclosed garden patio, so you can enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine. Off the hallway just outside the twin bedroom is a small shower room. Stairs lead up to the main lounge, dining area and kitchen. A modern, well equipped kitchen, with a 12 place setting dishwasher, allows for easy catering whilst on holiday. The lounge has ample, comfortable seating to cater for 6 adults and for those lazy days, a small DVD library and large flat screen TV. The property has WiFi, so you can plan your days out at your leisure and depending on the weather.
Stairs lead up to the next floor, where you will find two further bedrooms and the family bathroom. To the front is a king size bedroom and to the rear a double bedroom.
All bedrooms have a small, flatscreen TV with DVD player and IPod docks, keeping everyone happy.

Little Willow is a gentle stroll from the town centre, making the car unnecessary when exploring the quaint medieval town.
A good start to get your bearings is a visit to the Heritage Centre on the quay. Here you can watch the town model's ' Sound and Light' show, which goes into detail about the history and colourful past of Rye and its inhabitants. Upstairs is a vintage old penny pier museum where you can play on the old arcade machines and discover a time before video games. Or amble around the many antique shops in the Strand Quay and hunt out a bargain!
The town of Winchelsea is a ten 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 the delightful tea room is a great place to stop for refreshments.
Rye Harbour Nature Reserve is a short drive away 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. Camber Sands is just three miles away and has miles of sandy beach and dunes to explore. Or visit the rockpools at low tide on the pebbly beach at Pett Level, close by.
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 Bruges are available. Alternatively the ferries run from Dover, just 45 minutes away or the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone, a 45 minute drive.
