    Great stay, everything you need on hand with extra touches like milk for tea or coffee and Prosecco for a celebration, thanks to the welcoming hosts

    A lovely flat overlooking the river and fields beyond. It is cosy and comfortable. A great location and only a few minutes walk into Rye. Allocated parking is also very convenient. We have stayed here several times already.

    Great location only around 300 metres to High Street and lots of choice of restaurants. View over the river Brede is lovely and binoculars are provided to watch the seabirds. The river is tidal and it is interesting watching the tide rise! Apartment is comfortable and well equipped. DVDs and games provided and a CD player as well as Freeview TV. Lots of leaflets for days out. Allocated parking space and about 12 steps up to the apartment. Jempsons supermarket is 0.5 miles / 10 minute walk away as well as the Railway station so do not need to take the car everywhere. Spoilt for choice for eating out but recommend Cobbles Tea Room, The Standard Inn and Hoof. Days out include Rye Nature Reserve (2.4 miles away), Hastings (20 minute train journey £6.30 day return per person), Howletts Animal Park (1 hour drive), Bodiam Castle (30 minutes drive) but we found Rye itself to be lovely enough to spend a few days wandering round its great shops and eateries (as well as a small castle!). Would recommend Kittiwakes and hope to come back again.

    Great apartment, great location. Very well fitted out, right by the river, your own parking, only 5-10 minutes walk to the center of town. Could not fault it one bit.

    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.
