The Rye / Rye Centre area
Welcome to 1066 country!
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, with freshly caught fish available to buy from the quayside.
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 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.

Snug, clean, and well-apportioned, 15 Wishes made our two week stay in the town of Rye a delight. The flat has the charm of yesteryear -- low beams and steep steps -- and the convenience of today.... more

Rye is a beautiful small town which will linger in your memory for a long time. Its full of lovely pubs, winding cobbled streets and beautiful architecture. 15Wishes is in the heart of the town, full of character and very quaint and interesting with lots of great nick knacks. (but not twee). It has everything you need. The only drawback for some would be the steep steps, but to us they just added more character.
