Set within a quiet cul-de-sac, our home is a few yards walk of a fabulous curry house, grocery store, butchers, wine merchant and local restaurants and pubs. The cobbled streets of Rye are less than one minute walk and a ten minute drive to the sandy beaches of Camber Sands.

Having two parking bays within the grounds, you don't have the worry of finding a space. We also have a lovely sheltered paved garden with a table, four chairs, two sun loungers and summer house with a lovely sofa bed.

A lovely wooden dresser has a collection of Emma Bridgewater china and in the cupboards below are some fantastic games to entertain everyone. There are two comfy double sofas to relax on and a small armchair. We provide a TV/DVD player and a library of DVD films to watch and a Bose sound system to play all your favourite tunes from you iPhone. From the the entrance hall is a downstairs toilet which has a washer dryer and drinks fridge. Wifi is also provided.

About Elaine Tyner

We are a family of four and have owned Cinque Ports House for eleven years now and love spending as much time as possible in Rye. There is always so much to see and do, at all times of the year and we absolutely love it. When we are not in Rye, we would like to welcome you to our home. It is our home and therefore has lots of our personal things which we are happy to share with you.

Elaine Tyner purchased this cottage in 2007

What makes this cottage unique

It offers two parking spots right outside our cottage and a wonderful secluded private garden.

Charming cottage full of character!

  • 5 of 5

I visited with friends to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful time in the cottage. It’s situated in the heart of Rye so within walking distance of all the best restaurants, pubs and shops. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated with a lovely seaside theme throughout. Rye is one of my favourite places to visit and staying here rounded off the weekend perfectly. We’ll definitely be returning!

Lovely little house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house was immaculate and every thing provided for us. We had a lovely box of biscuits and bottle of fizz waiting which was a very thoughtful touch. Elaine helped us find somewhere for new year and nothing was any trouble. The decor and nautical theme totally fitted in with the houses location which was also perfect, we couldn’t be any closer to the centre of rye. Beautiful house, location and owners definitely worth a visit!!

Fantastic stay in a well located and well appointed house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rye. The property was well appointed, with seaside decor throughout, which the kids loved. The owner was very responsive and easy to deal with. Best of all the location is superb - less than a minute to the shops, restaurants and pubs of Rye. Overall big thumbs up!

Lovely property, lovely town.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage, very well fitted out by the owners with every convenience for a short or long stay. The only downside with it was there was so much to see & do in the area we weren't there long enough to fully appreciate it. The off road parking, a real bonus in Rye, was great and there is a private & comfortable, albeit detached, garden. Within easy walking distance of the town centre, pubs and restaurants the position was excellent as was communication from the owners.

Lovely cottage in a great location. Friendly and helpful owner.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and extremely well equipped. It is in a great location in Rye within walking distance of the shops and restaurants. It is also a good base to explore the rest of the area.

Rye is the most wonderful medieval town full of cobbled streets and interesting historical places to visit. It has the added benefit of being close to the award winning Camber Sands with its clear waters and miles of sandy beaches and dunes. If you fancy trying out any water sports you can do kitesurfing, windsurfing and sailing at Rye Watersports which is nearby.

Rye itself is full of fantastic restaurants, pubs, cafes and tea shops. You can visit art galleries, museums, stroll around antique shops and second hand book shops.

A few miles down the road is Rye Harbour Nature Reserve with a mosaic of habitats beside the sea with shingle, salt marsh, sand dunes, rivers, pits, grazing, reed beds and farmlands full of wildlife for you to discover either walking or by bike. It is also famous for its birdwatching.
