We spent two fantastic weeks here.
This flat is cosy, comfortable and an ideal place to explore some
beautiful gardens and National Trust properties from.
Well recommend it to all our friends
Brigitte and Ebershard,
Weve had a
lovely time here. The highlights, apart from the charming town of Rye, were Sissinghurst
and Hole Park Gardens. (farmers market on Mondays). Weve been coming to Rye
regularly for over 15 years now and this is our second stay at the Boathouse. If there is
a more perfect place to stay in Rye, weve yet to find it. Its the place to
stay for easy access to the charms of Rye and the countryside beyond

Could stay here forever! It really grows on you. Slept like logs in the comfy bed.
Watching the birds (were not birders so can only name the ducks, gulls and a
solitary cormorant whose antics as he tried & failed to keep hold of slithery eel, kept us enthralled), the tides going
up & down and sitting on the balcony in the sun means well go home rejuvenated.
No ostriches! But one boat went by! Thanks too for the bubbly x.

This was our first trip to Rye and we are
pleasantly surprised to discover how much there is to do; nature reserve at Rye Harbour,
ancient churches, Winchelsea & New Inn, Derek Jarmans cottage & garden at
Dungeness & the acoustic ears. Great Dixter was lovely. Food lots
of great places Mermaid Café, SI, the Ship. Rye Deli etc. Loved staying at the
Boathouse! The thoughtful details & bubbly made all the difference.

Arrived to sun on
the decking and bubbly in the fridge, what a welcome! Came for a restful break, but have
walked miles, around Rye to Rye Harbour nature reserve, saw curlews and white egrets,
redshank, wonderful photo opportunities. Shower lovely & hot, heating great for
evenings. Lovely on the decking just watching the tide and ostriches in field in front!
Fish & chips
from Kettle of Fish was good. Roasted chicken portions in oven all OK! Live music Ypres

visit to the Boathouse.
We have had the
most beautiful spring weather. Sun, blue skies and a gentle breeze.
Our son &
daughter gave is a surprise visit on day 1 to help us celebrate our 25th
Wedding Anniversary. Wonderful!
We have walked
over the marsh to Winchelsea Beach.
A ride on the
Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway took us to Hythe and a long walk along the
prom. Day 3 saw us walking to Hastings (take good maps if you do this). We
came back to Rye by train and it was amazing to see how far we had walked. On day 4 we
walked part way along the canal and then headed north of Rye to a lovely village called
Iden where we stopped for a drink before making our way back. Today (day 5) we walked to
Winchelsea for a pub lunch.
Thank you Chris
for the bottle which helped with our celebrations. We will be back!

mostly wild, wet & windy. So we visited Dungeness to make the most of the conditions!
We saw Derek Jarmans cottage and garden & went up the Old Lighthouse. Well worth
a visit & tremendous views of the shingle peninsula. Good fish & chips at the
Plenty of good
cafés in Rye, best cakes & ambience in the Apothecary? Good meal also at the
Ypres Castle Inn. Pity we missed out on the Arts Festival, but weve had a great
