Rye is one of the prettiest towns in East Sussex, perched on top of a hill with stunning views across the Romney Marshes and Rye Bay. This distinctive medieval gem of the Cinque Ports is the perfect place to spend time during your holiday. Wandering along the sloping cobbled streets, browsing the many craft and antique shops and relaxing in the quaint cafes, you will feel suspended in time. The medieval church and beautifully preserved historic houses give the whole town a wonderful unhurried atmosphere. With our collection of Rye cottages and holiday lets, you can choose to stay in the heart of the town or in a more secluded spot commanding views over the bay.
Our Rye accommodation is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area, and places to visit include the fabulous Nature Reserve at Rye Harbour, the unearthly yet bewitching Dungeness, and the famous dunes and golden sandy beach at Camber Sands. With so much on offer, it's not surprising that Rye is one of the best-loved tourist destinations on the south coast of England.
Many annual events take place in Rye and visitors return year upon year. Try the Rye Festival in September, the famous Rye Bonfire in November, the Rye Society of Artist's Summer Exhibition, the Rye Sea Pageant in October and Rye Bay Scallops Week in January. There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained!
