If you’re looking for a vacation in a historically authentic town then a holiday cottage in Rye, with its rich maritime heritage and maze of cobbled streets, is the ideal place for your self-catering holiday.
Rye is part of the historic Cinque Ports and continues to operate as a working maritime town today. Rye fishing boats land their catches daily and you can buy fish directly from the quayside to cook back in your self-catering accommodation.
Rye stands at the point in East Sussex where the sandstone high land of the Weald reaches the coast, with most of the old town and its historic buildings on these rocky heights; you’ll find a commanding view wherever you go.
And why not plan your visit round one of Rye’s annual events, which include: the Rye International Jazz festival in August, The Rye Arts Festival in September, the Rye Bonfire in November and Rye Bay Scallop Week in February; Something for everyone whilst staying in your Rye holiday cottage.
Further afield there are many other attractions available when staying in a holiday cottage in Rye such as windsurfing, kitesurfing or fishing trips from Rye Harbour just two miles away from Rye town. Or visit the historic 1066 country at nearby Battle which provides a fascinating insight into the culture and history of this area, the historic and some say smallest town in Britain: Winchelsea and the beautiful golden beaches of Camber Sands.
Rye is easily accessible from London and the rest of Europe by public transport thanks to Ashford International Railway Station being just a short distance away.
