The South East England region

One of the best preserved medieval towns in England, Rye is home to the enchanting cobbled Mermaid Street, the impressive Norman church of St Mary's, a rich selection of specialist shops and a thriving fishing fleet. The famous Mermaid Inn was once the haunt of notorious smugglers, the Hawkhurst Gang. Camber Castle, built by Henry VIII is located in the dramatic Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

Rye was once surrounded on three sides by the sea and its maritime heritage dates back to Norman times. To defend it against frequent attacks from the French, Rye became an 'antient town' of the powerful Cinque Ports Confederation.

Take time to discover its architectural treasures and narrow passageways. Climb the tower of St Mary's Parish Church for fine views to Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and the beautiful hilltop town of Winchelsea, with its maze of medieval wine cellars.

Rye has always been a magnet for writers and artists. Lamb House, a National Trust property, was once the home of Henry James and later E.F.Benson, creator of the Mapp and Lucia books. The artists Paul Nash, Edward Burra and Captain Pugwash creator, John Ryan all lived in Rye. Today a wealth of art and photography galleries thrives in the town.

Near Rye lie Camber Sands, the only sand dune system in East Sussex and renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and safe bathing. Conditions are ideal for windsurfing, powerboating trips, sailing and the ever popular kitesurfing.

Throughout the year, Rye offers a number of festivals for you to enjoy such as the internationally renowned "Scallop Week" in February, the Maritime festival, Rye Raft race and the international Jazz festival, all in August, the Rye Arts Festival in the second half of September, Wild Boar Week in late October, the spectacular Bonfire Parade in November and the Rye Christmas Festival which begins in early December.

"Clean, charming and cosy"

The cottage was delightful, the owners very helpful and lovely. We were right in the centre of Rye, yet very peaceful. I would have no hesitation in staying here again. The cottage had everything you could possible want plus more. So, so clean and very cosy. Me, my mother and young daughter loved it.
