Located just inside the historic Landgate in Rye, this delightful end of terrace cottage with origins dating from 1300s was converted to an individual cottage in the 16th Century.

We enjoyed our stay in Providence Cottage; it is just inside the citadel walls. With a dog, walks are easily accessible. The garden is long and thin but catches the sun nicely in the afternoon; cushions for the garden furniture were helpful. We found the double bed comfortable. Excellent notes and suggestions from the owners and a generous 'welcome pack' including lovely flowers! Parking is not a problem as we were advised to use the main town car park £2/24 hrs. Rye is a beautiful friendly town and we enjoyed Camber Sands, Rye Nature Reserve, Brede Woods, lots of pubs, tea room & restaurants just nearby, wonderful small independent shops, and Nineteen for a massage!

Mrs L,

A beautiful little cottage that's full of character.
