RYE

These quality one bedroom split-level  apartments have their own access and entrance via mahogany decked steps and sun balcony.

The purpose built apartments, built on the riverbank, provide superb views of passing yachts and the marsh beyond.

The secluded location and the almost hypnotic effect of the tidal river as it ebbs and flows will swiftly put you into a relaxed frame of mind.

Adjacent short term moorings can be organised (subject to availability).

Parking is available at the rear.

The pleasures of Rye's cobbled streets are barely 5 minutes walk. Further afield you are within easy reach of Winchelsea, Battle, Bodiam, Canterbury, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent countryside.

The 'invitation only' golf links at nearby Camber are well known and the adjacent Sands are glorious at any time of the year. Golf courses can also be found at nearby St Leonard's and Seddlescombe. Other activities include sailing, windsurfing, fishing and an abundance of walks. The nature reserve at Rye Harbour boasts several hides.

Cycling is an excellent way of exploring Romney Marsh using the tangle of narrow lanes, where you can discover Norman churches and 15th Century smugglers pubs.

Rye Centre

Travelling westward across Romney Marsh, the distinctive outline of Rye can be seen in the distance. It rises above the level green pastures, stretching from the sea to the far hills which formed the shoreline before the marsh was drained.

Once surrounded by sea, this fortified hilltop town played an important role in the defence of the south coast of England. These days, the river no longer harbours warships and is home to the local fishing fleet.

Meandering for over one and a half miles from Rye to the coast, the river forms part of the picturesque scenery visible from several vantage points in and around the citadel of Rye.

St Mary's church tower (usually open to the public) offers the best viewpoint to show the terracotta roofs of the many timbered houses. These ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages, once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen, regularly attract film crews in search of historical settings for period productions.

Many authors, musicians, artists and celebrities have made Rye their home, a medieval haven periodically visited by Royalty. In 1573 the title "Rye Royale" was bestowed upon the town by Queen Elizabeth I after a three day stay.

The sheer concentration of living history packed into this vibrant market town makes it the ideal base for a holiday of discovery, or a relaxing short break. There are many comfortable, welcoming hotels and guest houses and plenty of charming inns and restaurants.

"A brilliant base to explore Rye and the surrounding area"

We found the apartment quiet and comfortable – it met our needs perfectly. We particularly enjoyed watching the birds on the river from the balcony. As well as gulls, ducks and terns, we saw an avocet, oystercatchers, redshanks and an egret! We had never visited Rye before and would definitely visit the town again – so much to see. If you like walking, we recommend the nature reserves at Dungeness and Rye Harbour. An excellent pub with food in Rye is the Ypres Castle Inn - well worth a visit

"A lovely apartment in a lovely setting"

An ideal place for a get-away-from-it-all break. After arriving went for a walk around the delightful town of Rye then returned to watch a couple of avocets & a few oystercatchers approx 15 yards away; this set the tone for a relaxing week Lots of local walks around the town, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Camber Castle, Winchelsea, etc. plus some good restaurants & great local food - had the best ever lobster from the fishery less than 100 yards away. Highly recommended - will definitely return

"Comfortable, well located, accommodation for two in a quiet location in pretty Rye"

We really enjoyed our stay at The Boathouse. We appreciated the well equipped and comfortable accommodation, its quiet (but conveniently close to the town centre) location, and the ever changing (as the tide goes in and out) view through large windows and from the balcony.

"It was a very peaceful and well equipped"

Loved looking onto the river which was never the same, going from high tide and a spectacular squall to mud banks and marooned boats. Easy reach of quaint old Rye on foot and with parking for a car if you needed to travel further afield

"Superbly relaxing location"

Great apartment with everything you need for a 2 person relaxing stay. The Boathouse is in a beautiful and secluded spot on the quay but within an 5 minute walk of the pretty town centre of Rye with galleries, antique shops and some of the best restaurants you could ask for. Also nicely positioned as a base to visit the places of interest in Sussex and along this historic coastline.

"Perfect apartment"

This apartment has everything you need for a holiday. Very clean and comfortable, sun deck is great for sitting and watching the boats go by and just very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. Jenny & Pete

"Perfect weekend break"

The whole process from making an initial enquiry and booking through to the actual weekend was easy, relaxing and in one word 'perfect'. The apartment has everything you need and was warm and comfortable. The views from the balcony were lovely. This very short break left us both feeling relaxed and refreshed - we simply did not want to go home and shall definitely return again. Many thanks for the bottle of bubbly left in the fridge - it was lovely to find and drink!

"Well placed for Rye"

Convenient and quiet, the apartment was everything we needed for a weekend stay with the bonus of a parking space; something that is not easily available in Rye. We stayed in number 11 which is not a sleek modern apartment, the furniture, particularly in the bedroom is old fashioned (or maybe vintage?) but it was comfortable enough and given that the weekend was cold, wet and windy, it was cosy and warm. The booking process was easy and Chris was very quick to respond to emails. You reach the apartment along an unmade road which is a bit bumpy and you pass a few industrial units which seems a bit odd at first but it is all very convenient for Rye which is charming. We highly recommend Knoops, the hot chocolate shop, and the heritage centre for the model of Rye - both worth a visit but mainly we enjoyed just mooching about the town. We also visited Dungeness which is like a whole different world and a great place if you're a keen photographer. Another highlight was listening to the church bells on Sunday morning as we lay in bed (we opened the window to hear them) We enjoyed our stay a lot and would happily return.
