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

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, available until September 2018 only. 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.

    Quirky cottage in fab location with stunning views to Rye. Cottage itself suffers from a down stairs bathroom off the kitchen , and bathroom door right by cooker!Kitchen basics all there but very squashed if more than 3 people stayed.Bathroom clean but dated , shower poor, and no where to dry towels unless heating on. Lounge suite tired and a little uncomfortable.Lovely gas fire though. Bedrooms small but pleasant, spotlessly clean , and very comfortable beds. Wooden floors and stairs mean any walking about was heard throughout,ditto for conversations. If all of the above negatives are okie, for a family with young children rather than 2 couples or more, than cottage fine, Winchelsea quaint.

    The cottage was lovely but the heating was barely adequate for a holiday in a very cold February. Excellent location and very well equipped although a sharp knife would have been good!

    Quaint well equipped little cottage in a lovely village - good bus service to Hastings and Dover - comfortable bed - ideal for my husband and myself - parking on the road outside the cottage - recommend The Lodge for eating out.

    The up sides are many...the downside sides were, for me with a disabled wife, parking, we needed to park a street away, and front entrance access, there is no pavement to the front door, only a sloped lawn.

    It all was just what we hoped for. We called it our Hobbit House! We enjoyed the lovely view you get from the master bedroom. When we woke up, I would pull the curtains, make us some tea and read a book while enjoying the view of the countryside glowing in the morning sun. The cottage is situated in old Winchelsea and we found it very peaceful that it is a normal village (with loads of beautiful English gardens) and not packed with tourists. The cottage itself has a lovely garden (with an apple tree, that's a plus as we love apple trees) and the garden was bigger as we expected as when you cross the road at the front there is another large piece of garden, that's where the swimming pool is and enough sun to dry your washing and kids playing around.

    Had a lovely time perfict base for exploring kids loved the pool downside the sofa bed was to uncomfortable and the sheet wasnt clean and although the instruction pack was great it needs updating as the shop isnt a shop and there is no location for the pool took 2 days to workout its location on the upside without wifi the family enjoyed playing the board games
