Lovely place. Well decorated. Clean and bright.

  • 5 of 5

Rye is charming and this is a good location for exploring it. We also went to the Great Dixter Garden which was amazing. We took the local bus along to Hythe one day and found it historic and charming.

Owner's Response: Hi Valerie, I hope you had a safe journey back to Canada! Thank you for your lovely review, I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed Great Dixter - It really is a lovely day out. Hythe is great too of course, next time, you should try travelling there from Dungeness on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway - you might find yourself taking the breeze behind one of their glorious steam engines with everybody waving at you along the way. Do come back and see us again. Louise.

Comfortable, light, lovely few nights in Rye

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights, 4 adults, one child and a baby. Bedrooms on separate floors prevent baby disturbing everyone.

Plenty of room and nicely equipped, could easily have stayed longer.

Convenient location, garage great for one car and if more public car parks close and not expensive.

Louise, very helpful, thank you.
