About the property

The Place in Rye is located in The Mint in the very centre of historic Rye, and sleeps 4. There is easy parking nearby with a car park only 50 meters from the cottage.

The beautifully renovated cottage has 2 light and airy bedrooms with king size beds and ample storage space. Each bedroom has its own luxury bathroom with soft white fluffy towels and Duck Island products. There is a new fully fitted kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting room, WIFI, smart TV and small library. There is a peaceful sunny courtyard with outside seating for 4.

Two sumptuous bedrooms with wonderful views, king size beds and luxury bed linen will ensure that you wake every morning feeling refreshed and ready to explore the medieval delights of Rye. Both bedrooms have ample storage and hanging space and hairdriers are provided in each bedroom. Both bathrooms have storage for your bathroom needs and complementary Duck Island products to ensure you have what you need when you arrive. One bathroom has a rolltop bath and the other a large walk-in shower. Fluffy towels are provided as are beach towels should you wish to swim in the sea.

There is a brand new fully equipped kitchen with washing machine, drier, dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven and microwave and all the necessary equipment for you to be able to cook if you so wish. Teas, coffee, hot chocolate and milk are provided and a selection of basic condiments for cooking. On your arrival there will be a few homebaked biscuits or flapjacks, a small loaf of bread and fresh butter, honey/jam for breakfast to start your stay.

There is a dining area seating four around an oak dining table, a small library offering a few choice books and traditional board games for you to enjoy during your stay. The sitting room has a very comfortable sofa and two stylish armchairs, a smart TV and luxurious woollen rugs. There is WIFI throughout the cottage.

A private courtyard leads off the sitting room and offers somewhere to relax in a peaceful environment away from the crowds. A lovely oak bench and two additional chairs allows four people to enjoy an aperitif or a simple meal outside in the sunshine.

Our art is inspired by the seaside and many of the furnishings and decorations have been locally sourced.

Look out for little seasonal treats! At Christmas traditional decorations will include a real fir tree. At Easter there will be Spring flowers and small chocolate gifts for you to enjoy. Lavender bags filled with our homegrown lavender scent the wardrobes. During the summer months there are freshly picked flowers from our Sussex garden and a bowl of fruits from our orchard after harvest.

The cottage is ideally situated in the ancient citadel less than one minute's walk from historic Mermaid Street, the High Street, and less than five minutes walk from the station.

Guests use the entire cottage. We will be there to greet you personally and hand over the keys when you arrive. We can be contacted by telephone during your stay.

The cottage is an elegant retreat for couples and unfortunately children under the age of 12 are not permitted. Pets are not allowed.

Pricing is based on one person staying. Extra guests are charged an additional £20 per head per night.

About The Owner

Andrea and Christopher welcome you to our home in Rye. After years of weekending in this idyllic town we decided when Christopher retired that the time had come to buy our lovely cottage. We have lived locally for almost thirty years.

Why The Owner chose Rye

We adore Rye and wanted to find a cottage in the citadel so that we could walk to everything that we so enjoy. We have found a real gem we think! We love staying at the cottage as do our grown up sons. Everything is so close by, and yet the cottage is very peaceful, has good natural light and a secluded courtyard which is sun filled in the summer months and very private.

What makes this house unique

Despite having everything that Rye has to offer just a few steps away, the cottage is peaceful and relaxing. We hope that you will enjoy the cottage as much as we do.

We could not have picked a better home in a better town. You will feel right at home and Andrea will leave plenty of materials and suggestions of what to do around Rye. My only regret is that we did not stay long enough!

Beautiful cottage with immaculate furnishings. Amazing location. The photos don't do it justice. Couldn't have asked for better.
