Located in Rye, close to Camber Sands and Romney Marsh. The Sunday Times listed The Cabin by The River as one of five romantic rentals in their Best Cottages for the Summer (2017) feature.
This stylishly designed space combines an eclectic mix of contemporary and mid century modern furnishings providing high spec boutique accommodation in a sought-after, riverside location.
This cabin is situated on the banks of the River Rother overlooking Romney Marsh with Rye's ancient Citadel rising in the distance. Rye is a fascinating historic town and one of the original Cinque Ports. It has become known as a chic and arty destination with its boutique style shops, antique emporiums, galleries and choice of eateries, including pubs, teashops and restaurants. There is even an independent cinema with two screens. There are various festivals throughout the year including the Rye International Jazz Festival, Rye Scallop Festival, the Rye Arts Festival and the famous bonfire procession and fireworks. For beach lovers, Camber is close by with stunning sand dunes and an expansive seascape. You can pass the time swimming, beachcombing or trying your hand at paddle boarding (SUP), windsurfing or kitesurfing from Jury's Gap. The beautifully eerie Dungeness is around 20 minutes away and fashionable St Leonards and Hastings are a 20 minute short hop by train or car.
The cabin design is modern rustic meets beach house, with interior walls clad in beautifully weathered timber and wooden board on the floors and outside on the deck.The entrance to the cabin is via French doors which lead you from your own decked area. The accommodation is spacious and open-plan. Immediately to the left is a stylish lounge area with a very comfortable Matthew Hilton Balzac sofa and large Smart TV which can be angled either towards the lounge area or the bed. Beyond the lounge area is sumptuous emperor bed made up with goosedown pillows and duvet, and Egyptian cotton sheets – a perfect love nest! The painted headboard houses bedside lamps and cleverly disguised storage for clothes etc. To the right of the entrance is the kitchen and dining area with a mid-century modern dining table and chairs. The small but well-equipped kitchen consists of an electric oven and hob, fridge, microwave and Nespresso machine. The bathroom has a toilet and basin and a shower over a large bath. The bathroom is partly clad in beautiful Moroccan zeliges tiles.
Outside on the decked area, there are two wooden sun loungers and fire pits on the shingle between the cabin and the river.
