Bedrooms / beds

5 / 5



**Maytham Cottage is set at the end of a quiet private road at the top of Rye Hill, a gentle stroll from the town centre. **

The beautiful 5 bedroom property is great for mixed generation bookings or friends wanting to catch up.

You enter the property into a small entrance hall, space for coats and shoes after afternoon strolls. From the hallway, there is a cosy lounge with views over the garden and a small wood-burner for cold autumn and winter nights. There is a utility room with a washing machine and separate dryer, a great space for your four-legged friend if they come too and a separate downstairs WC.

The large kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, large fridge freezer and kitchen table for early morning coffee before the rest of the house awakes. The dining room can comfortably seat 8 guests and has stunning views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

There is one double bedroom with a double bed on the ground floor with an ensuite shower room suitable for anyone who has mobility issues.

Stairs lead up to the further 4 bedrooms. To the left is one double bedroom with a king-size bed and opposite a bathroom with bath, shower screen, removable shower hose, WC and handbasin. To the right, you have two single bedrooms, a large master bedroom with a super king size bed and with views to the side and rear of the property. Another family bathroom with bath, shower screen, removable shower hose, WC and handbasin.

There is a small roof terrace overlooking the garden and Romney Marsh towards the sea, the perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine watching the sunset.

The garden wraps around the property and is dog secure and is mainly lawn with mature planting. There is a terrace off the kitchen with an outside table and chairs and further garden furniture for the summer months in the garden shed. A great space for enjoying the countryside views, wildlife watching and star gazing without light pollution at night.

The property is dog friendly with a stair gate at the bottom of the stairs to prevent dogs from going upstairs. We can provide a travel cot on request but do not provide cot bedding and a highchair if required.

    We stayed at Maytham Cottage for a girls weekend. The photos do not do it justice, it’s even nicer in real life! The rooms are bright and spacious, the kitchen is well appointed and everywhere was spotless. The location is superb also, with 2 good pubs within a 10 minute walk, and Rye itself within a 15 minute walk. Jacqui and her team are fabulous, nothing was too much trouble… the welcome pack was gorgeous

  • John

    Well appointed and exactly as described. The lane down to the cottage is an adventure, but all the best destinations are. Beds were super comfortable and the kitchen very well kitted out.

  • Harry

    Amazing place to stay if you are wanting to visit Rye. The house is very close to the town centre, where you can find a gorgeous little town. Jacqui was extremely helpful with directions to the property as well as any queries that we had during our stay. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat to Rye.
