The South East England region

East Sussex is a beautiful and varied county to visit. It offers a wide range of outdoor activities from rambling to extreme water sports.

Perhaps you would like to visit some of the local historic towns in this 1066 area such as Winchelsea, Hastings with its sustainable fishing fleet or The Abbey in Battle.

It's a short trip by car or rail to the cosmopolitan town of Brighton and London is just as easy to get to. The beaches are some of the best and cleanest in the country with Camber Sands being a firm favourite for families.


Rye Harbour is a working fishing village and it's seafaring past gives it a strong sense of community. In the harbour itself there is a sailing club and kite surfing school for the more active or you can take a leisurely stroll down the path through the Nature Reserve to the unspoilt beach and return to the Harbourside pub for a well deserved pint and a crab sandwich.

The local area is steeped in history with castles and medieval architecture to capture every imagination. Camber Sands is a huge expanse of sand perfect for families and sports people alike. It has some of the best golf links in the World. Artists are attracted to the area by it's endless sky so there are many open studios to visit. The brand new sports centre in Rye offers a spotless swimming pool, squash and a gym.

If you like good junk shops and quality antiques then you will do well to spend a few hours in Rye town. There's always some kind of festival going on or you could get some food at one of the many restaurants in town. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, Le Touquet in France is just a short flight from Lydd airport, a ferry or Eurotunnel from Folkestone or Eurostar trip from Ashford.

"Perfect for us"

I booked this cottage within a week of travel due to a sudden change of plans and was fortunate to find this cottage available on the dates we needed. The owners were very helpful from the outset and this was extended to our arrival day, which happened to coincide with a nasty thunderstorm. The lights were flickering and we had to locate torches and candles, all of which were available, just in case we lost power (we didn't). I did have to contact the owner twice asking for location of such items and she was always available and able to assist. The cottage is appropriately priced for what it offers and certainly met our needs. The double beds are particularly comfortable, it is only the noisy seagulls that disturb the peace! There is a shop for the purchase of essential food items within easy walking distance. We enjoyed a lovely stay and Camber Sands is just a short drive away.

Location of property to nature reserve and Camber sands is very good, although the general appearance of the immediate local area is poor. The accommodation needs some is certainly more s… More

I am so sorry that you were not happy with with the cottage and wish that you had voiced your complaints whilst at the cottage as I would have been more than happy to deal with any grievances. I was a little surprised to receive your review as we usually get very good comments. Indeed i had received an email from guests previous to you saying 'just to let you know we had a great weekend. The house was great-our 4 year old wants to move in!!!' We have regular health and safety inspections. I do however appreciate your comments and will be extra thorough with my weekly inspection this week. I do hope your weekend was not spoilt by your findings.

"Highly recommended"

We were a family with two children + inlaws staying 2 nights at 4 Coastguard Cottages. As other reviews mention, the house is quite small but it has everything that is required and it is very pretty. Our 4-year old wanted to move in!
The house is in a good location to visit the nearby nature reserve and for walks along the beach (it is ~ 10' walk). There is a small grocery store nearby as well as a local pub with reasonable fare.
The host, Wendy was very easy to deal with in the days leading up to our reservation. Overall, a very relaxing weekend.

"above our expectations"

We had a relaxing and exploring two weeks holiday at this cottage, 3 adults and 3 children (9-14 yrs). We really liked the interior and we felt welcome and "home" - the owner was very friendly and helpful.
The cottage was a great base for us to explore south east England (Brighton, Dover, London area). We will recommend a stay here to our friends and family.

"Beautiful Cottage - what a relaxing weekend"

We had a relaxing weekend away here at Rye Harbour with our baby daugther and our friends with their 1 yr old son. The Cottage is stylish and tastfully decorated and a perfect base for exploring the local area. The owners were very accommodating with us and our travel arrangements and provided us with some lovely treats to enjoy for our weekend.

"Perfect! Surpassed our expectations - everything we'd wanted and more."

What a find! This really is a special haven; just what we were looking for and more besides. Such a beautifully styled and tranquil interior, magic garden, idyllic location, and close to everything we wanted to see and do. Rye is a gem of town, and this cottage offered a 5 star base to explore it from. From the first point of contact Wendy went our of her way to answer all our questions and help us to get the most from our holiday: from helping us to hire bikes for the kids to the beautiful flowers, homemade(!) cake and Cava that more than welcomed us when we arrived. There was even a personal welcome note! Not something we've had before and epitomised the care and attention that has been poured into this perfect little hideaway. Can't recommend highly enough - we'll definitely be back for more!

"a tranquill retreat in a charming hidden harbour retreat"

A cosy cottage thats charmingly apointed with unique vintage finds - The weather was wet & windy but the cottage warm and snug. The situation is stunning for costal walks whatever the weather and the nearby antique shops a great place to while away hours. When the sun did come out we found the garden the perfect sun trap.
