Description from owner
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.

“Lovely quiet place with a river view, 5 mins walk from town”
A nice clean quiet place with a river view. We walked into town in the evening for a meal - just remember to take a torch! We hope to go back again.
“Charming and relaxing”
Loved our 3 day break. Very comfortable and relaxing stay. Being a private location it is so very quiet. Rye is a quaint little town. Enjoyed visiting Hastings. Liked the simply Italian which was a 5 minute walk away. Loved the balcony and view. Wendy
Stayed in one of six one bed apartments last weekend and had a wonderful time. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped, very comfortable and just perfect for two people. The location is very tranquil yet just a five-minute walk into Rye centre. Rye is lovely, with old cobbled streets and lots of tea shops, restaurants and old pubs. I would recommend this apartment for couples, young and old, or even a group of friends as there are six apartments available. Chris, the owner, was very prompt in answering our enquiry and even left us a bottle of bubbly as it was our anniversary. Our only disappointment was that we only stayed for two nights and not more!
“an english seaside holiday”
our fifth stay at the boathouse, a cosy, comfortable, well appointed one bedroom flat on the on the river near Rye. Great for a relaxing, restorative stay -only a few minutes' walk from the town centre with all its hostelries , markets, antiquities and the like, near the sea at Camber and with a backdrop of the Kent and Sussex countryside, castles and gardens - good for walkers and twitchers alike .Full of character - on many days one may see the town Crier leading a bridal party down the old cobbled streets and the churchyard bathes in the spirits of Foyle and Mapp,s house, All this and a free bottle of bubbly to welcome one, A place to revisit and enjoy Kate Hyland. Prescot.
Secluded location right on the river. Very tranquil. All facilities provided for and very clean throughout. Even a welcoming bottle of bubbly! Stayed over the bank holiday weekend for the jazz festival. Great.
“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
Really nice appartment with great view , very close to town , Good facilties and the terrace is Great for breakfast and morning sunshine. Great location to explore the area from The town has lots of character with plenty of good shops cafes , restaurants and pubs ,
“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
