Rye

Well preserved medieval architecture, a fascinating maritime history and a combination of lovely coast and country makes Rye a great candidate for a cottage holiday.

Perched on a hill, the medieval town of Rye is a maze of Georgian buildings and narrow cobbled streets. Its maritime traditions go back to Norman times and it was one of the English port towns that formed the Cinque Ports Confederation in defence against frequent French attacks.

Built in 1249 as part of the town''s defences, the Ypres Tower''s balcony offers wonderful views of Romney Marsh and the surrounding countryside. Adjoining Rye Castle Museum is split over two sites, while the East Street site houses a fascinating collection of the town''s history, including an 18th Century fire engine. Other notable buildings include St. Mary’s Parish Church and the Rye Heritage Centre which offers a fun look at the past, through the famous Rye Town Model sound and light show, as well as the ghost walking audio tours which are available to hire.

The Rye Harbour Nature Reserve is only a short drive from many of our featured Rye cottages; it’s a mosaic of habitats beside the sea, including wetlands, shingle ridges, saltmarshes, rivers and reed beds, there''s a wide range of wildlife, birds and plants to discover from a large network of footpaths and birdwatching hides. From Camber Sands to Rye Bay, there are miles of spectacular coastline to see, perfect for a drive, walk or bike ride.

    Follow in the footsteps of Elizabeth I and spend some time exploring the beautiful Cinque port market town of Rye. In 1573 she bestowed the title Rye Royale. Stay in this well thought out and stylish holiday cottage which is just a 6 minute walk from the centre of the town, with its large selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes. You could discover for yourself why many authors, musicians, artists and celebrities have chosen to settle here. Rye is one of the best preserved medieval towns in England, despite being the haunt of the notorious smugglers, The Hawkhurst Gang. Visit The Mermaid Inn, their famous hideout, where the cellars date back to 1156. Visit the Rye Museum and climb St Mary’s Tower for breathtaking views across to Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and Winchelsea. See Lamb House, the home of Henry James and later E. F. Benson, and where they filmed the recent production of ’Mapp and Lucia’. Another great film location is Camber Sands and going in the other direction towards Hastings where ’Foyles War’ was filmed. There are also connections by train to London. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
