The town of Rye is lovely with everything you might need for a weekend away including a supermarket, lots of pubs, cafes and independent shops and galleries. The cottage is located a 15 minute walk from the station, the last few minutes are along an unlit road without a pavement but the road is quiet so not much of an issue. The cottage is lovely with plenty of room for 9 guests without it feeling cramped. The decor is tastefully done and the cottage has masses of homely charm unlike lots of holiday rentals. The kitchen is very well equipped with more than enough space, utensils and crockery for 9 people. There is a footpath that runs along the river 50m across a field from the backdoor and the local area has lots of lovely walks. There is nothing that we didn't like or would have changed
We booked this house as a way for our larger family to stay together under one roof for a few days (7 adults & 3 children) The house was simply beautiful and full of romantic charm enjoyed by all 3 generations! The fireplace, Christmas tree and glass conservatory were amongst many favourite features. If you have a car this place is highly recommended. A problem with hot water heater was dealt with well and a partial refund provided without request - perfect hospitality. Thanks Jacqui!
