Honey Cottage is a delightful end of terrace house purchased by us in September 2014 which we have completely updated and refurbished. We hope we have thought of all the little extras to make it a "home from home", but always welcome feedback if something is lacking! With two bedrooms, a sitting room, kitchen/diner and small courtyard outside, it really is an ideal spot to enjoy a short break or longer holiday. Ideally it suits 4 people but on occasion we are happy to rent out to a party of 5 as it does have a double sofa bed in the sitting room.

About Fran Huxley
We live in Tonbridge with our 2 teenage children. My husband runs a pub and I am self employed so with busy lives we have always enjoyed getting away "from it all". Having owned a holiday lodge at Camber Sands for 4 years we had already fallen in love with Rye and the surrounding areas when we came across Honey Cottage in an Estate Agent's window last summer! The rest is history .... we have loved doing up the cottage and since completion have enjoyed many a happy weekend with and without our kids at the house. Its perfect location - having Rye town on your doorstep and Camber Sands for long walks still just down the road gives us everything we need.
Fran Huxley purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Fran Huxley chose Rye
We bought the cottage in September 2014 and have enjoyed doing it up over the past few months. We wanted to have a holiday home that we could both use ourselves and let out to other visitors until such time as we may decide to re-locate to the area! For now, we will use it as much as we can when it is not booked out and hope that our visitors enjoy it as much as we do!
What makes this Cottage unique
The more we have got to know Rye and the surrounding coastal areas the more we fall in love with it. To be able to live in the middle of a busy and interesting town whilst having beaches all around it suits us perfectly. We get as much pleasure from long walks on the beach whatever time of year and whatever the weather. To be completely free to roam and then come back to Rye for a wonderful selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants and then home to a cosy, comfortable cottage is just the tonic we need.

A Perfect Base for Exploring.
Honey cottage is a beautiful little gem and we were so glad we found it. Very well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated with absolutely everything you need.
Some reviews mention the busy main road and traffic noise. Yes it can’t be denied but you don’t go and stay in a town if you’re seeking silence. It didn’t bother us at all. I enjoyed the hustle and bustle as I live in a quiet village.
It was in a perfect spot to get to the centre of the beautiful old town of Rye and some great restaurants. No need to use the car at all for evenings out.
We visited Great Dixter Garden, (sublime) Dungeness, Brooklands Church, Hastings, and Canterbury and Whistable. Four nights really wasn’t long enough. I could have stayed another week. Honey Cottage was so comfortable I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. I hope we’ll go again. Thank you for having us.
Charming little cottage in the heart of Rye.
A home away from home. Everything we needed and more.
Spotlessly clean and welcoming.
Thanks for your review and very pleased to hear that you were comfortable in Honey Cottage!
The cottage is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very centrally located. The back little courtyard is a real bonus!
The downside is that it is on a main road making arrival and departure in a car a bit tricky and the traffic noise can be intrusive if you’re not used to it.
Overall a lovely place to stay.
Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed a good time in Rye. The traffic is something we wish we could change, but always say it is the downside of being in the centre of town!
A nice, comfortable and well equipped place to stay! Thoroughly recommend a stay here.
Spent a lovely few days in Rye and the surrounding areas. The cottage was comfortable, clean and aesthetically pleasing, with everything you needed to enjoy a stay away from home. Thank you Fran!

Great place to stay!
Great cottage, nice town, overall very good experience. We traveled all the way from Florida to stay in Rye so we could be centrally located to Hastings, Dover and Beachy head. We even took the train into London one day. Fran was nice and helpful. Nothing but good things to say about Rye and the Honey Cottage!
Thank you for your review and I hope the South of England lived up to its reputation! So pleased you enjoyed Rye and Honey Cottage.

Camber Sands and Winchelsea beaches are both about 3km from the cottage. Both can be reached on foot, bike or by car and are worth the visit. Rye Harbour and Nature Reserve also has a beach which can also be a beautiful place to walk to. Bikes can be hired on a daily or weekly basis just 5 minutes away from the cottage. Buses also run from the centre of Rye to Camber Sands and Hastings.
Rye is about 30 minute drive from Dover and Folkestone. 15 minute drive from Lydd Airport or 1.5 hours from London Gatwick. The train station is 5 minutes walk from the cottage with regular trains in and out of London and Ashford. A good local bus service also operates covering all surrounding areas. There is no need to have a car to enjoy a stay at Honey Cottage.
A good selection of cafes, restaurants and bars are on your doorstep. Excellent fish and chips, pub food, Italian, Indian, Thai and Chinese are all within walking distance. The high street is mainly made up of independent retailers with excellent fish, meat, vegetables and deli's on hand. A wonderful area of antique shops, gift shops and clothes shops all within 5 minutes.
Rates & Availability
Booking Notes: To book Honey Cottage please check the availability calendar and then call or enquire on-line to confirm your interest. A deposit of 25% is required when bookings are confirmed with the remaining balance due 6 weeks prior to your visit. If less than 6 weeks from time of booking full payment will be required upfront. Changeover Day: Ideally in school holidays we would like to try and keep to a Saturday changeover for weekly bookings, however, we are flexible and will accommodate requests where we can. Notes on prices: Bookings are 2 nights minimum stay, but can be booked for any number of nights. We do try and be as flexible as possible regarding changeover days. We are sorry that Owner's Direct have introduced a service fee which is payable on all future bookings, but we are all trying to compete with other companies offering holiday accommodation and as they all charge fees, Owners Direct have introduced this to increase their marketing spend to help us all get future bookings! Hopefully this will not put you off booking with us.
