A lovely clean, comfortable cottage. Good sized garden and I loved sitting on the sofa by the window. Easy walk to shops and to recreation ground for the dog to run around. Parking space outside house quite tight and might be a struggle if you have a big car, but no problem finding a space elsewhere.

The cottage was in an ideal location to walk into Rye town centre, 10 minutes maximum. From the back garden gate, we walked the dog along the canal bank into a recreation field where he was able to be off lead and have a run round and then carry on into the lovely town. A good size cottage with an entrance hall, downstairs loo, well equipped kitcheRead moren and a lounge leading onto a patio and a lovely enclosed garden with table and chairs. Upstairs were 2 bedrooms, and a bathroom. Hide

We were here for a week visiting family in Rye and enjoyed our time. A well equipped house with plenty of room for four. The garden was larger than I'd expected, with rear access to the river. Its a short walk into town, and a good base for exploring the surrounding countryside, whether on foot or by car. Parking can be a problem in Rye, but our NiRead moressan Micra fitted easily into the bay in the road outside. Would come again Hide

Very clean comfortable cottage, just a ten minute stroll from the centre of Rye. Cottage is very well equipped, the only addition we could suggest would be an electric fan for use during hot weather. Rye has a lot of interesting shops and places to visit, and there are many more places of interest to visit nearby within an hours drive. We found sevRead moreeral good restaurants in Rye, and didnt need to drive to them as it was only a short walk! Hide

An attractive home, very well located within easy walking distance of the town centre but far enough away for parking to be easy. Clean and generally well equipped, and with some good views across the river. One drawback, it wasn't advertised that the cooker had an induction hob.

We have stayed at Canal Cottage twice now. It's a great location for us and our dog;backing on to the canal path which leads to playing fields, only yards from a lovely, dog-friendly pub and only a 10 minute walk into town. On road parking is always available in front of the house. The house itself is comfortable and light; not luxury but well equiRead morepped and homely. You are sometimes aware of noise from the attached properties but otherwise it's a lovely, peaceful location. Hide

This house is ideally located and within walking distance from town and local restaurants and pubs. Im guessing this is the reason they can ask a higher rate for rental as it is quite expensive for a 3 night stay. Vanessa was very helpful when we first arrived and wanted to ensure everything was just right for our stay so thank you again Vanessa. WRead moree always managed to park outside so that was never a problem. We used the Globe Inn twice and would recommend this. Would we stay again yes. Hide
