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.

    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.
