It's one of South East England's prettiest towns and looks like it's been plucked straight out of a medieval fairy tale. Planning a getaway to East Sussex?

How to get around

Getting around from your Rye holiday rental

Rye's cobbled streets and winding alleys are best explored on foot. You'll eventually find yourself on Mermaid Street, a cobblestone road lined with 15th-century half-timbered houses. High Street is another popular thoroughfare, brimming with cafes, tea rooms and traditional pubs. A car offers the freedom to tour East Sussex at your own pace and also unlocks access to secluded holiday cottages in the surrounding countryside. Local buses run to Dover and Hastings, while trains will get you to London Saint Pancras in around 1.5 hours.

Food & drink

Savour a bounty of fresh seafood in Rye

Seafood is considered a staple in East Sussex, and there's a bounty of flounder, cod and scallops hauled in from Rye Bay, every day. Those with a sweet tooth can devour traditional British cream teas, while beer lovers can sip on local ale at some of England's oldest pubs, including the Mermaid Inn, which once served as an HQ for 15th-century smugglers and is reputed to be haunted. With flower-filled gardens and sunny courtyards, Rye holiday cottages are the perfect place to enjoy a homemade ploughman's lunch, loaded with cheese, apple, cold meats and lashings of crunchy pickle.


Eclectic shopping just steps from your Rye holiday cottage

With an eclectic mix of shops, ranging from jumbled curio stores to curated antique emporiums, Rye is among South East England's quirkiest shopping destinations. You'll find some of the best antique stores in the Quayside district, including a specialty glass shop owned by BBC Antiques Roadshow expert, Andy McConnell. Stop by for a chat, a cuppa and a wealth of information on British antiques. If you're shopping for retro finds, head up to High Street, for a treasure trove of vintage boutiques and thrift stores.
