Anna and John were so warm and welcoming, it made such a huge difference to our trip. Regardless of the wet weather we experienced whilst away, our anniversary in the cabin was surely a special one! Great location, just a short walk to Rye high street. Cabin was beautiful inside and out, spotlessly clean and a touch of luxury!

My husband and I spent a lovely long weekend in Rye with our greyhound Leila. The location of the property is ideal - a super quick walk into the centre of Rye but on the banks of a tidal river so there are gorgeous countryside views. The property was beautifully decorated inside and really warm on the chilly and at times very wet November weekend.Read more The owners left yummy bread, jam and prosecco for us which was a lovely treat.
