Suitable for families or a group of friends seeking a quiet, peaceful getaway. Located in 1066 Country and medieval cinque port town of Rye. Within 5 minutes' drive from Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, 10 minutes' drive from Camber Sands and Winchelsea beaches and 30 minutes' drive from Battle and Hastings. So whether you're into water sports, sightseeing (think castles, cobbled stones and medieval buildings), bird watching or walks in nature, Castle Mill Cottages is perfectly situated as a convenient base for a lovely holiday.
The semi-detached cottage is tucked away at the end of a private road. It has a gated parking area for up to 4 or 5 cars. The gated riverside area has a small garden, a decked area with outdoor bench and table, and a private pontoon where you can start off for a paddle down the river in our inflatable kayak.
Our holiday home has a secluded feel and is nestled between green fields and the River Brede, with the garden offering an unobstructed view – save for sheep dotted about the landscape! – across to Camber Castle.
The dining area is in the conservatory, alongside a cosy seating/living area. A second living room offers large comfy sofas, perfect for watching telly in the evening over a hot cup of cocoa. Step outside and enjoy a barbecue on the patio or play games in the rear large garden. There’s also table tennis provided or board games for those who prefer to be homebound or indoors. The kitchen is fully kitted with the usual mod cons: dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, microwave and a large fridge-freezer.
Castle Mill Cottages is the perfect spot for nature lovers, bird watchers, walkers, history aficionados, and sun-seekers. Beach goers will not be disappointed as Winchelsea Beach and Camber Sands are both within 10 minutes drive. For active types, there is a variety of water sports such as kite-surfing at Camber Sands.
The property is a mere 10 minutes walk (2 minutes drive) into the centre of the medieval Cinque Port town of Rye, a 5 minutes drive to Rye Harbour – voted Britain’s favourite nature reserve in 2016 – and a 20 minute walk across fields to Camber Castle straight from our front door. It is also the perfect base to explore 1066 Country, with Hastings and Battle only 30 minutes drive away, and other lovely spots from Winchelsea, Brede to Bodiam in half that.
We look forward to hosting you at Castle Mill Cottages and we hope you love our home as much as we do. We will meet you when you check in. During your stay, you will have your privacy as this is our holiday home so we won't be there when you're there. But you are very welcome to ask for our assistance if you need it of course. We're only a half hour away :)
