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.

Lovely house in a great location
Excellent house as described and well equipped with everything we could have needed (and more). Spotlessly clean on arrival. Location, although on a main road, is very convenient. Short walk to lots of cafes, restaurants and shops. Supermarket and car park (£2 for 24 hours) only a few minutes walk. We fell in love with Rye and will definitely be back.
Thanks for your great review and we are really pleased you enjoyed all that Rye has to offer! Hope to see you again.
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!
Thank you for your review - very pleased you enjoyed a good few days in Rye and Honey Cottage!
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!

Cottage is a 5 minute walk from the train station. Its a "home away from home" with everything you need; beautifully decorated and even fresh flowers upon arrival. This Hostess has put a lot of care and thought into making your stay very comfortable. An excellent stay.
Thank you! It is always good to hear we are doing things right. So glad you had a good week in Rye.
Cozy, comfortable beautiful little home
This was my third time staying at Honey cottage and as always it is so cosy and welcoming, everything you need to make your stay a fantastic one. Communication with the owner is great and very understanding. I just love Rye and all it’s quirkiness and Honey cottage is right in the middle of it so never more than a minutes walk to the nearest shop. I look forward to returning.
Thanks for taking the time to do a review - so pleased that you were as happy third time around and hope to see you again in the future!
