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.

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 really lovely little cottage, spotlessly clean and very well equipped, everything you could possibly need for your stay. The outside courtyard was lovely perfect for a morning coffee. The living room was cosy and comfortable and the bedroom had a really comfy bed.
The cottage is in the most perfect location in the centre of Rye town, everything is in walking distance, lots of places to eat, have coffee, shopping, antiques, a large supermarket (Jempsons), swimming pool and my favourite place the cinema really is so cute has a lovely bar area too.
A perfect base for exploring the area too.
There is no parking by the cottage which initially concerned me but you can park in the cattle market car park for 24hours and it is just across road from the cottage, a five minute walk away. There are also plenty of other car parks around the town all a very short walk away.
I had a lovely stay in the cottage and really enjoyed Rye, will definitely return as there was so much I didn’t get to do.
Thank you so much for your lovely and very detailed review. It sounds like you managed to fit a lot in to your short stay and we hope to see you again!

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.
