The Cottage, Rye
The Cottage, owned and managed by the owners of Rye's fabulous The Ship Inn, is a 300-year-old, detached, single-story property, with a history that matches that of the town itself. It is locally renowned as much for its awesome, wrap-around wisteria as it history, which includes serving as a chapel for local fishermen (when Rye was indeed a port town, before flood defence required the creation of Rye Harbour), and was where the fishermen came for a pre-sailing blessing.
Located up a winding lane, just a little way out of the town centre, a 15-minute walk from The Ship Inn, the Cottage boasts two double bedrooms and a bathroom and is good for four people to share. It may be all on a single storey, but the nature of being an old property means that levels are pretty uneven and there are plenty of small steps up and down between areas. The open-plan living and dining room includes an inglenook fireplace, while there is also a kitchen and what an estate agent would call a study, but which is really somewhere to put a desk. Outside there is a small terrace and a BBQ area.
