Description

This fascinating Grade II* listed house of immense historical interest was built around 1530 and boasts the original Tudor turning staircase. Opposite the church and in the heart of the Citadel, the holiday cottage is heavily beamed throughout with a bread oven in the laundry room. An ideal base for exploring the cobbled streets of Rye. The cottage is within very close walking distance to the Kino cinema, a lovely venue for having lunch, coffee/tea, wine, beer or just to watch a film.

Flushing House was filmed by the BBC for their comedy drama "Mapp and Lucia" (December 2014) starring Anna Chancellor, Miranda Richardson, Steve Pemberton and Mark Gatiss. The cottage is featured as "Woolgar and Pipstow", the estate agent.

Visit the traditional market on Thursday and Farmers' Market on Wednesday. Swim at Camber Sands or Winchelsea Beach, stroll across the marshes and visit the ruins of Camber Castle or take a ride on the steam train to Bodiam Castle.

Location description from owner

The 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 ReserveRye 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.

“Perfect!”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2014

Absolutely fabulous house. Very quirky but very comfortable and with everything you could possibly need. Fantastic location in the town. We only stayed a weekend but wished it could have been longer.

“Clean, charming and cosy”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

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.
