Period weather boarded cottage, with swimming pool, home to writers Thackeray and Conrad, Rye has 13th century church.

Shared swimming pool (May-Sept)

A period weather boarded cottage offering far reaching views across the marshes to the Citadel at Rye and shared use of the owners above ground swimming pool. Situated snug in its hilltop setting amongst tile-hung cottages and award winning tea shops. Seven centuries ago, the new town was founded by Edward I to take the place of an older town of the same name which had been lost to the sea in a series of storms and now lies beneath the waters of Rye Bay. It became a bustling cinque port town and the centre of the wine trade with France with a smuggling history and hidden wine cellars beneath the broad streets, and it is the smallest town in the country to have its own mayor. Visit the museum and the 13th century church. Home to the writers Thackeray and Conrad, the actress Ellen Terry, and Millais was inspired to paint his famous portrait ’The Blind Girl’ with Winchelsea in the background. Winchelsea is situated where the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty meets Romney Marsh. There is an unspoilt shingle beach within a mile – take your shrimping net and binoculars to observe the many birds that frequent the area at low tide or explore the sands and rolling dunes at Camber, 7 miles. Rye, Hastings and Battle are all a short drive away. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Ground floor: Living room with double sofa bed/dining room/kitchen. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Open tread stairs (open to one side) to first floor: 1 double bedroom. Steep, narrow stairs to second floor: 1 twin bedroom.

Gas central heating, gas and electricity included (£25per week November-March, £12per short break). Bed linen and towels included. Travel cot. High chair. DVD and small library. CD. Gas hob. Electric oven. Washing machine and tumble dryer (in external utility room). Small enclosed tiered garden with terrace and furniture. Barbecue. On road parking. Shared swimming pool (24 x 12ft; depth 4ft) available May-September. No smoking.

    Lovely cottage, nice village, clean & well maintained. My only (slight) complaint, is that sofa left a lot to be desired! Come with plenty of food, the local shops are a bit thin.

    It was a little disappointment. There was hardly any sugar or tea provided. The washing up sponge was dirty and the cleaning products were not clean. The kettle could be replaced with a new one, it was old and rusty. Otherwise it was an OK place. Thanks

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at Pipewell Cottage. As we offer self-catering accommodation, we are not obliged to provide any tea, coffee etc. so only have a small amount as peoples preferences vary greatly. As to the cleaning items, there are adequate provisions in the cupboard under the sink and all the liquids are provided. Usually, guests don't tend to do that much cleaning. With regards to the kettle, it is a white plastic (Kenwood make) and has no metal areas on it to rust. I have checked the element within and it is fine and works effectively. I am sorry it was felt necessary to give such low scores. The low overall score of ‘4’ is of course a matter of personal opinion but the advert does give potential guests a very accurate and detailed description of what the property is like before booking. Maybe the money paid for this stay should have been put towards a more suitable property for 7 guests rather than a small 2 bedroom cottage.

    The cottage had bags of potential!, in a great position although noisy, lovely walks & Winchelsea is stunning.

    Nice little cottage, a bit small for two adults and three children. Great that there was a swimming pool! It is close to Rye and the sea, good location.
