Located in Rye Harbour this beautifully decorated, with driftwood furniture and colourful soft furnishings, this charming Victorian cottage holiday is a great coastal hideaway. Within easy walking distance of nature reserve.

This beautiful Victorian house is situated in the pretty village of Rye Harbour which is just a five minute drive from the town of Rye. Rye Harbour is a lovely location for a holiday, with its huge coastal wildlife reserve, saline flats, saltmarsh and shingle, as well as its sailing club, pubs, village shop and cafe/art gallery. The town of Rye nearby is not to be missed. It is an antidote to the typical British high street, with independent boutique-style shops, cobbled streets, chic cafe-bars and historic pubs.

Entering this beautiful property, you will first come to the lounge where the stylish, coastal vibe is very much apparent, with large pieces of ornamental drift wood. There are two fireplaces here, both of which are working, one a traditional open fire and one with a woodburner, so the house will be cosy, even in the deepest of winter. There are two sofas here, upon which you can relax and watch the TV and DVD player, or perhaps make use of the property’s Wi-Fi. This room also has a dining table which seats four. A door leads to the kitchen, which is again stylish with a seaside feel. There is an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. Doors lead to the garden room which, in turn, opens out onto the patio. Take the stairs from the lounge to the two bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and feature fireplace. The second room, to the rear of the cottage, has a single bed with pull-out trundle bed. The bathroom has a shower over the bath.

Outside to the rear of the property is a pretty enclosed garden with patio and lawn, seating and a charcoal barbecue. Parking is available on the road.


Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

  • Two bedrooms: One king size, one single with pull out trundle bed
  • Wi-Fi available
  • Charcoal BBQ and garden furniture
  • High chair, travel cot and stair gate available
  • TV, DVD player and iPod dock
  • Slimline dishwasher
  • Washing machine located in the bathroom
  • Range oven, fridge/freezer, microwave and cafetiere
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Regret no smoking
  • Electric and heating included
  • One dog welcome, however please ensure that your dog is not left alone in the property as this may disturb the neighbours.

The location is perfect for walking. There really is t much else around except for a small shop which is adequate, a cafe which is dog friendly and excellent and two pubs which are dog friendly. The William the conquerer is excellent with really nice food and very pleasant staff.

Really good location next to a nature reserve and walks along the coast. The cottage was so comfortable to return to after a day out. Local pub a few minutes walk away with good food. Would recommend this cottage for a relaxing break.

Very nice and clean house with a wonderful equipped kitchen and a nice garden. You can make nice walks in the environment.

Reviewed by Linda, 7th July 2017

The location is perfect for both sightseeing and dog walking. There are two pubs within easy walking which both serve excellent food and allow dogs. The cottage is adequate but on the wrong side of 'shabby chic'. It could be fabulous if given some TLC.

It's a lovely cottage, very well equipped and comfortable. Also the owners were very kind and left milk and a bottle of wine as a welcome - gratefully received. Things to be aware of - the parking isn't particularly easy close by and if you do have a dog that can tend to bark, I wouldn't recommend the property as you are sandwiched in between propeRead morerties and rather on top of each other.

This is a lovely, friendly, stylish, comfortable house, that feels genuinely like a home, not just a holiday let. We've really loved our time here.
