"Nice cottage, great location, but too noisy!"

Stayed here in June 2014. Cottage is small, only suitable for families and not sharing couples as it's not big enough. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for self catering… More

"A lovely cozy cottage ......."

A lovely cozy cottage with everything you could want. A real home away from home in a fantastic location. A short walk to the Mermaid, even closer to Simply Italian and numerous cafes where we enjoyed morning coffee and cakes. The main high street was minutes away so you were never too far from anything.

The owner Dani was easily contactable, friendly and very helpful - thank you Dani, we had a wonderful stay at your charming cottage!

"What a lovely place! Better than expected"

Dani, our host, is great and easy to deal with.

"Wonderful cottage"

Undercliff Cottage was everything we had hoped for and more. Immaculately clean and tidy and very well appointed with an excellent kitchen. We ate in quite a lot and it was great to have a proper kitchen and oven. Our only slight niggle was the absence of a wi fi connection. Rye is the most idyllic and picturesque of towns and to be located literally only two minutes from the lower end of Mermaid Street couldn't have bettered. We will definitely be returning to Undercliff Cottage

"A lovely cottage that is very close to Restaurants and Bars"

"I spent a perfect weekend with my sister in this lovely cottage which was very comfortable, clean and everything you could wish for for a self catering holiday/break. We ate out for all meals as there are cafes, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. The owners provide a parking permit which is very useful and a nice touch. I loved it so much I have booked to stay here again and cannot wait!"
