    We found it very interesting watching the river going up and down and the boats going past at high tide and all the different birds feeding at low tide. The busy town of Rye is only a short walk away with all it interesting old buildings and many lovely places to eat. We look forward to visiting again soon

    Apartment was very furnished and the welcome pack was very well received,also we appreciated the tea and coffee supplies. We wanted somewhere close to Rye harbour nature reserve and also visits to Dungeness and other local birdwatching haunts. So the location ticked all the boxes. Just a couple of points we were not sure about recycling requirements so if this could be included in the guest book,and also a indication of where the switch is for the heated towel rail.

    We found the apartment to be beautifully presented and very convenient for Rye town centre which had a good choice of restaurants. There is so much to see in the area that I can see us doing a return trip to Sussex and this is a great place to base yourself. There were previous reviews mentioning the state of the access road which although not perfect, really was not that bad.

    Lovely clean apartment and good to have a car parking space right outside. Very convenient for Rye town centre and excellent for Rye Harbour nature reserve which is fabulous.

    Rye is lovely quaint place and the apartment located centrally with car parking. The apartment is immaculate and well stocked with games, dvd, local information, cooking utensils, blankets to snuggle on sofa or arm chair with. The drive up to the apartment from main road is a bit bumpy and there are about 10 steps to the actual apartment and you will need to take a torch if walking out in the evening. The welcome bottle of Presecco, tea and coffee a thoughtful touch. We enjoyed our long weekend there!

    This cottage is in a lovely location by the river with views across the marsh towards the sea. It is no more than 10 minutes walk to the centre of town and has its own parking spot - very handy in Rye! It is a very comfortable cottage and we have used it several times for short breaks.

    Our second visit to this warm and cosy apartment. Close to all the amenities of lovely Rye. Great views from living room of the river and marshes and visiting redshanks, oyster catchers and various gulls. Highly recommended.

    The only gripe about the location is nothing to do with the wonderful Kittiwakes but the private road that you enter when leaving the main road.Why oh why don't the nine owners of the cottages on it pull resources and at least fill the huge potholes with gravel as it is a veritable sinkhole appearing with a lake !

    A great location within easy walking distance of Rye town centre. Lovely views from the lounge over the river and fields beyond. Allocated parking close to the entrance. The owners are also very helpful. We have happily stayed here a number of times.
