Why Irene Jones chose Rye

We love this cottage, because it is so unique; in the heart of the historic citadel of Rye. It is a grade 2* listed property which is the category designated for houses of immense historical and architectural importance and there are very few buildings in the country in this category.It has rooms, which have a good feeling of space and height for a Tudor cottage, but with all the modern facilities and close walking distance to the Kino cinema.

What makes this cottage unique

As you are in the heart of the ancient citadel you are able to appreciate fully the beauty of this fascinating town.

The property was fantastic, better than the website implies!

  • 5 of 5

Really liked the property, great character and beautifully presented. Clearly the owner likes to present it very professionally, perfectly clean, extremely well equipped and looks like it had just been decorated. Gave great information before arrival too which meant finding and using the property was simple, without a hitch.

The property is also very conveniently located if you want to walk around the beautiful town of Rye, which is lovely. Ideal for little shops, nice pubs and restaurants.

Beware of the tight staircase and very tight parking if you are mobility challenged, we're not so no problem there.

Kids loved it but more important wifey loved it, brownie points aplenty!

The perfect place to recharge

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from a week long stay at this delightful characterful cottage and cannot wait to book again. It is steeped in history and yet so warm and comfortable, conveniently positioned in the heart of Rye for shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants and with easy access to a tempting array of walks. It is the perfect place to recharge.

Wonderful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, full of character set in the heart of the town. We had a wonderful time exploring Rye. The cottage is very comfortable, and well equipped. If your looking for a self catering stay then look no further. Would highly recommended and can’t wait for our next stay.

Fabulous cottage

  • 5 of 5

Flushing House is a charming, characterful property in a brilliant location in the most picturesque part of Rye. It has everything you could need for a self-catering stay, with a very well-equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and surprisingly large rooms. The hospitality tray and milk in the fridge are a nice touch, and there is plenty of local information in the sitting room to guide you on where to eat and what to see (book a table for Friday or Saturday night as places get busy even in February). We were just sorry we were only staying for two nights!

One of the best preserved medieval towns in England, Rye is home to the enchanting cobbled Mermaid Street, the impressive Norman church of St Mary’s, a rich selection of specialist shops and a thriving fishing fleet. The famous Mermaid Inn was once the haunt of notorious smugglers, the Hawkhurst Gang. Camber Castle, built by Henry VIII is located in the dramatic Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

Throughout the year, Rye offers a number of festivals for you to enjoy such as the internationally renowned “Scallop Week” in February, the Maritime festival, Rye Raft race and the international Jazz festival, all in August, the Rye Arts Festival in the second half of September, Wild Boar Week in late October, the spectacular Bonfire Parade in November and the Rye Christmas Festival which begins in early December.

With a spectacular combination of coast and countryside that’s scattered with relics and ruins from the past, this area is the kind of place where you don’t just learn about history, you live it. Known world-wide for its heritage, 1066 Country offers visitors a rich historical experience.

The thriving market town of Battle is home to the very spot where King Harold fell during the fateful conflict. The Edwardian seaside resort of Bexhill-on-Sea is the birthplace of British motor racing. Europe’s largest beach-launched fishing fleet can be seen in Hastings and you can also enjoy the picturesque Old Town. Pevensey was the landing point for both the Romans and the Normans. Rye is a maritime maze of Medieval and Georgian buildings.
