We are located in the heart of the beautiful town of Rye and are proud to offer our guests a comfortable and convenient stay. We are especially proud of our prime location, as we are just a 5-minute walk from the high street, making it incredibly easy to explore all that Rye has to offer.
One of the great things about staying at Rye Red Cottage is that you can leave your car in our off-road parking and start your day with a delicious cooked-to-order breakfast. From there, you can set out to explore the town and its many attractions, all of which are within easy walking distance.
One of the must-see attractions in Rye is Lamb House. This beautiful Georgian building was once home to two famous writers, Henry James and E.F. Benson, and is now a museum that gives visitors a glimpse into their lives and work. Another great place to visit is the Rye Heritage Centre, which showcases the history and heritage of the town, from its medieval origins to its recent history.
If you are interested in history and architecture, a visit to Ypres Castle is a must. This impressive fortification was built in the 13th century and is one of the best-preserved examples of medieval architecture in the country. The gun garden, located just outside the castle walls, is also worth a visit, as it gives visitors a chance to learn about the history of firearms and the role they played in the defence of the castle.
Of course, no visit to Rye is complete without a trip to the tower of St. Mary’s, which offers stunning views of the town and its surroundings. Climb the steps to the top and take in the breathtaking views of the sea and the rolling countryside. This is the perfect place to come for a quiet moment of reflection or to simply enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a bed and breakfast that is easy to reach, offers convenient access to all of the town’s attractions and is close to the high street, then Rye Red Cottage is the perfect choice. We look forward to welcoming you to our bed and breakfast, and to helping you make the most of your time in Rye.
