Located on a cobbled street in the heart of historic Rye, this charming cottage has been decorated to both reflect its fascinating history and offer contemporary conveniences and comfort for all its guests.

Situated in the centre of the wonderfully quintessential market town of Rye, this property is perfectly situated with something for everyone. From independent boutique stores, to small hidden gems of antiques stores, with art galleries and a wide range of eateries, including tearooms, pubs and an array of fine dining restaurants. With all the latest films, and a selection of classics, the local independent cinema offers something for all ages to relax and enjoy a good movie. Nearby, just a short 15 minute drive away, Camber Sands is a fantastic beach for whiling away an afternoon with swimming or a selection of water sports.

Adjacent to the cottage at 12 West Street, these two properties can be booked together for larger groups or families. Entering from the cobbled street, you arrive into a utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, which is shared with the property next door. A second door leads to the stairs which take you up to a small landing, leading to the property’s lounge. In this tastefully decorated room, you will find a comfortable sofa bed and a cosy leather chair, overlooking the town’s famous cobbled streets, perfect for a spot of people watching. The television benefits from a built-in DVD player and digital radio. Directly off the lounge is the sleek, kitchen which has a small table for two as well as an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge with ice compartment. A lovely feature of the kitchen is the balcony that leads off from it. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. Up the somewhat steep, cottage style stairs, is the spacious attic bedroom. With zip-and-link twin beds which can be made up as a king-size, if you prefer. The room has many interesting period features, including exposed brickwork and beams. There is also a small fold-out single bed suitable for a child, as well as space for your clothes. The bedroom windows look out across the rooftops and beyond to the sea.

From the kitchen is a balcony which has a bistro style table for two, it has views across the town and to the countryside beyond, a perfect location for an evening of wine and conversation. There is no parking available, due to the central location of the property, but there is space to unload and ample parking available in the town.

Please note there are two very steep staircases in the property with no hand rails, making the property less suitable for children or people with mobility issues

Reviewed by Alister 31st December 2018

A comfortable and characterful cottage with a nice feel. Excellent location in the town centre, the suggested car park was a very short distance once we had worked out the route. Maybe not very suitable for people not happy with stairs, though they aren't very long !

Lovely, snug, well equipped accommodation with plenty of room for the two of us situated right in the heart of this lovely historic town. The bedroom is particularly splendid and spacious. Staying in November we did wonder about the heating, but we didn't need to - kept us cozy throughout our stay. 12A would definitely be our first choice for anothRead moreer stay in Rye. Hide

We had a lovely time in Rye! The cottahe was very clean and tidy, warm and cosy - lovely to have milk, bread, jam, wine as a welcome. We had everything we needed, which was great. We would certainly stay again - the location is so good and the flat had everything I needed!
