This lovely property is located in the heart of Rye. It is beautifully decorated throughout, this stylish bijou-style holiday home is full of vivid colour, fascinating furniture and antique finds, all in a convenient central location.

This 17th century grade II listed cottage is located in the centre of the lovely town of Rye in East Sussex. Rye is a historic town; with cobbled streets, hidden-away pubs, chic shops and cafe-bars, it is a far cry from your average town centre. Instead here, shoppers will enjoy discovering hidden treasures in the antique shops and finding unique gifts in the independent boutiques. Even seeing a film here feels special, with a bijou independent cinema perfectly in keeping with the town.

This wonderful cottage is a true gem and has many period features alongside unusual decoration. Entering the property from the rear entrance, you will come straight to the kitchen with adjoined dining area. The kitchen benefits from an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The washer/dryer can be found under the stairs. The dining area has a wooden table, chairs and quirky church pews which add to the unique experience of this cottage. A door from here leads to the bright lounge, with open fire, sofa, chairs, TV and DVD player. There is a huge range of books to choose from, so keen readers will feel very at home here. Steep stairs lead to the first floor, which make the property unsuitable for guests with mobility issues or those under the age of 12. The master bedroom suite looks out over the cobbled streets and features a metal framed double bed and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also has a metal-framed double bed, whilst the third bedroom has twin beds. The bathroom is on this floor and has a shower over the bath. A steep laddered staircase leads to the Moroccan-style den on the top floor, which is the perfect place to watch films with its comfortable low level seating, TV and DVD player and drinks fridge.

Due to the central location of the property there is no parking or outside space, however there is ample parking nearby.

This is the most beautifully decorated house I've stayed in. We are stealing so many ideas from the owners for the work we're currently doing on our own house. It's right in the centre of Rye, opposite a pub which didn't get too noisy, a short walk from everything. We recommend the Riverside car park which is only a short walk and costs 5 for 24 hoRead moreurs. You can pull into the little cobbled lane to load and unload your car. Just a lovely, lovely place.

This is a lovely cottage, in a fantastic location, tastefully decorated and very well maintained. Generous 'welcome basket' on arrival and milk in fridge. However, light sleepers may struggle with the early bin men and loud seagull squawks on and off through the night. There's no parking but lots of car parks, though it can be tricky to find a spacRead moree at certain times. Can't fault cottage or location though - it was wonderful. Hide
