An enchanting, attached Grade II listed period cottage circa 1400 with later additions in the18th Century, hidden away in the oldest and most atmospheric part of Rye. Once, the surrounding houses were taverns for incoming mariners, now they are exquisite character homes. The cottage is tucked away in a secret corner off the ancient Church Square. The cottage is gorgeous in its simplicity - the whole structure is heavily beamed, beautifully renovated, cosy and full of character. Shop: 100 yards Pub: 100 yards Coast: 3 miles

Beautiful atmospheric little cottage. We enjoyed our stay so much.

Previous Customer,

This is the second time that I've stayed at No 2 Hucksteps Row, and I am hoping in future to make it an annual holiday. The cottage is ideally situated in the centre of Rye, with permit supplied parking available nearby in Watchbell Street. A lovely cottage with loads of character (love the stairs!)

Mr H,

Lovely historical property; great working fire.

Mr Paul D,
