“This was truly the most amazing mini-break we've ever had! I've stayed at quite a few airbnb's that have, luckily, all been nice but Diane and Graham went above and beyond to make this a positively, unforgettable experience. The Barn is located down a drive on a private estate, with stunning views of valleys, filled with sheep. It is beautifully styled and cosy, the perfect balance! It provides the best set-up for a romantic getaway and being with a toddler! We had everything we needed plus more. Diane had welcomed us with such generous essentials and treats which exceeded all expectations. We felt very looked after, like we were part of the family. Especially, at the end of our trip when we were invited into the main house for a cup of tea. Diane and Graham made a real effort to entertain our son, as did their granddaughter and grandson who happened to be there. Such a lovely family! We had a really interesting conversation about the build of the barn, and the gardens which we were invited to explore. Diane is such an inspiration, a very talented designer! Graham was very warm and welcoming. Felt like we had known them for years. We wanted to go for an autumnal mini-break but it's perfect for all seasons, which we plan to experience on our return, many times. We are already planning our next trip!”
The Place in Rye is located in The Mint in the very centre of historic Rye, and sleeps 4.

There is a car park 50 meters from the cottage. Sorry we do not accept children under 12 and no pets.
“This cottage set in the heart of Rye is a complete haven. It is calm, welcoming, beautifully stylish and every detail for our stay had been considered. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home and looked after. We were here for Christmas and couldn't have chosen better. The cottage is spacious but lovely and cosy and there were elegant festive touches at every turn - from a decorated tree, mince pies and satsumas to copies of Carol Ann Duffy's Christmas poetry books on the beds. Be careful of the bath, though, you may find an hour has passed and you are none the wiser or no more willing to get out... With the charm of the town right outside the front door, you can walk to the church for quiet reflection, nip down to the Ypres Castle for macaroni cheese of the year and a beer, or be inspired and uplifted in the Rye Art gallery. Just lovely. We came home happy.”
* WITH PARKING SPACE* This luxuriously furnished, light and airy apartment which has recently been refurbished, is centrally located, yet in a quiet part of the town overlooking the harbour.

“Beautifully finished apartment with everything you need in a great location to explore Rye. Was immaculately clean and very comfortable. We were there for the scallop festival and ate out most of the time. Can recommend the Landgate Bistro and The Union for food and The Grapevine if you like live music and cocktails. Also some wonderful history - The Mermaid pub is great with 600 years of heritage. Great stay.”
