Wrest, Rye

Not content with just Camber, we decided to move further afield, in fact, a couple of fields and you hit the historic town of Rye!  This beautifully positioned cottage, is situated amongst the boat yards of Rye, a metal works and a small number of residential properties – a coastal hive of activity, situated on the banks of the tidal river Rother, this 1950s cottage is uniquely placed to enjoy a river frontage and also a short walk into the citadel (historic part!) of Rye.

Its footprint is not large but it is surprisingly spacious, suited best for a couple of families, with four bedrooms, two double, two twin.  The kitchen is small but meets all your domestic needs – a double oven with gas hob, a slimline dishwasher, washing machine, Nespresso machine (pods not included!).   Step up into the dining room with a table for eight amongst the quirky and vibrant decor the cosy snug with log burner is a great place to interact with the culinary goings or watch TV.

Through the corridor on the ground floor is the first of the bedrooms, a twin room, with an abundance of book shelves, followed by a double bedroom (5ft) next to the family bathroom, with shower attachment and view over the boatyard next door.

Ascending the stairs into an open, light and airy sitting room with two comfy sofas with french doors leading to a balcony overlooking the river.   It has an additional TV together with DVD and PS4 (some games provided).  Off the sitting room is a shower room and a further double and twin room.

Wrest Cottage is a short walk from the main town of Rye, easily accessible from the Ypres Inn, or round Rock Channel to the bottom of Mermaid Street – perfect for a mooch amongst the many antique and independent shops. Access to the cottage is passed the boatyard – allowing you to drift asleep to the sound of the tinkering of boats (and a few gulls).

Due to the nature of its situation, the end of the garden is NOT SECURE, there is a bank with steps up to the edge of the river, it is not gated – therefore the property is not advisable for young children.  Children must be supervised at all times.  The jetty is not accessible to guests and owned by the boatyard.   The deck, however, is the most idyllic and peaceful place to watch the tide go in and out, enjoying alfresco dining!

Parking is on the paved area between the garage and the house, there is space for two cars.
