Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This interesting, split-level apartment offers comfortable, homely accommodation for couples on a romantic break.

Enjoy some rest and relaxation in this riverside apartment on the banks of the Rother, with a private quay and mahogany-decked sun terrace. At high tide, the boats will glide past, and you might even be lucky enough to spot a seal searching for a fish supper! A short stroll brings you into the medieval Cinque Port town of Rye, with its cobbled streets, wide selection of restaurants, atmospheric beamed pubs (the one time haunt of many a smuggler), delightful tea rooms and, of course, fish and chip shops. Explore the many galleries, and you might even find a bargain at the brocante and antique shops. Don’t miss the view from the tower of St Mary’s Parish Church across what was once known as the smuggling capital of England some 300 years ago. Enjoy cycling (bikes for hire in Rye), wildlife at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and Dungeness, and walking along the Royal Military Canal. Hastings, Battle and Camber Sands are all within a short drive. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    The Boathouse was very conveniently situated for town centre. It was a peaceful, bright and yet atmospheric location. That we had brilliant weather all week certainly helped. It was good to have a locker room for our cycles. Facilities were good (although the two frying pans need replacing). Lack of Wifi was a problem for my wife.

    Good location. Decor and furnishings decidedly dated and tired. Well designed flat, but needs updating. Comfortable beds. The directions and information given are very out of date, including directions from the main road and information about the locking mechanism on the front door. No locks on the ground floor windows, so security not good if you are going out for the day. Carpeted bathroom floor! This needs changing to a more hygienic covering. Take extra towels, as the ones provided are insufficient. No draining rack for washing up. Very detailed inventory, which I didn't check, but I doubt this is up to date, given previous comments. Don't let this put you off, though; just bear the above in mind when booking.
