Rye cottage description

Undercliff cottage is ideally situated in the centre of the beautiful town of Rye, opposite Strand Quay and a few hundred yards from the famous Mermaid Street. The whole town is accessible by foot and there are numerous pubs, restaurants, shops and historical buildings right on your doorstep. The stunning beach and dunes at Camber Sands are just a few minutes drive from the cottage. There is also plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas of Kent and Sussex.
Beautifully furnished and surprisingly spacious, with a kitchen/diner, lounge and 3 bedrooms, the cottage is ideal for families or couples sharing. The pretty secluded cliff side garden with outdoor eating area is perfect for alfresco dining whilst the wood burning stove in the lounge makes for lovely cosy nights in.

Built in the 1820's, the cottage retains much of its period charm along with the necessities of modern living. The accommodation is on 2 levels and is entered via the side gate and courtyard and through a stable door into the kitchen/dining area. The beautiful fully fitted Farrow and Ball painted kitchen is fully equipped with hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge and all the pans/crockery you will need for self catering. This charming room also has a table and chairs for cosy family meals.
The lounge has a wood burning stove and feature beams, television/DVD, a comfortable vintage ercol sofa and leather club chairs. Go up the open staircase and you will find the 2 good size bedrooms with comfortable double beds and ample storage and 1 smaller bedroom with 5'9 bunk beds.
The cottage benefits from gas central heating. All linen and towels are provided. A travel cot and high chair are provided.
