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.

    A lovely cottage and the pool was a real bonus. Winchelsea is a real picture postcard place.

    This is a lovely cottage with great character and good facilities. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful with friendly locals, there's a lovely little village shop and pub nearby which is handy. We stayed in a group of 4 adults and one child and it was big enough. Something to be aware of is that the second bedroom (which is in the loft space) has no door. We would have liked check-out to be a little later than 10am, considering check-in was allowed no earlier than 3pm. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would return in the future.

    A lovely cosy cottage, we really enjoyed our stay. Amazing views in a great location. As other reviewers have commented, a path and steps would help getting bags and baggage into the cottage and would help keep the carpet cleaner too!

    A lovely break. Everything we needed as we have an 8month old baby. Hoping to come back again soon!
