About Fran & Ian Huxley

We live in Tonbridge, Kent with our two grown up children. For several years we have loved spending time in the Rye & Camber Sands area of Sussex and bought our first holiday home in August 2014. Since then we have spent much time in this area and have successfully been renting out Honey Cottage for the past 3 seasons. It has proved so popular that the summer season fills up very early on in the year. We have just finished renovating Jaks House at 25 South Undercliff and look forward to welcoming holiday guests to our second home in Rye over the coming months.

Fran & Ian Huxley purchased this house in 2017

Why Fran & Ian Huxley chose Rye

Jaks House is well placed in the centre of Rye to be able to park the car and spend the rest of your holiday on foot or bike if you fancy it! We walk to the shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes from here and enjoy not having to rely on transport. If feeling energetic you can also take a lovely 3 mile walk to Camber Sands or the other way to Rye Harbour and Nature Reserve. The house is extremely well equipped and has a lovely rear garden which is south facing so great for just relaxing at home. The only downside to the property is that it is on a main road but with the double glazing, it doesn't seem to cause a problem for us or other people renting the house.

What makes this house unique

Central Location for getting around Rye

Home from home!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house within walking distance of all Rye's attractions in the town. Fully equipped with everything you might need, including a great DVD selection and games to play too. Wonderfully clean, warm and cosy - we loved having the open fire, especially during the snowy weather!

Traffic on main road wasn't an issue at night as double glazing muffles most of it out. Parking just over the river worked out well for us too.

A fabulous property and would definitely recommend!

A lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We found this property very relaxing and comfortable. It was spotlessly clean, wellequipped, child friendly and not far from the shops and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt very at home.

Love this little house!

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because it's on a main road and there's no parking but this really is the loveliest place. Fran is really helpful too!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We agree it would be lovely to have no traffic passing and parking, but sadly due to the nature of Rye and being centrally located we have to put up with both drawbacks. Glad you had a good stay and enjoyed Jaks House.
