RYE These quality one bedroom split-level  apartments have their own access and entrance via mahogany decked steps and sun balcony. The purpose built apartments, built on the riverbank, provide superb views of passing yachts and the marsh beyond. The secluded location and the almost hypnotic effect of the tidal river as it ebbs and flows will swiftly put you into a relaxed frame of mind. Adjacent short term moorings can be organised (subject to availability). Parking is available at the rear. The pleasures of Rye's cobbled streets are barely 5 minutes walk. Further afield you are within easy reach of Winchelsea, Battle, Bodiam, Canterbury, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent countryside.

Further afield you are within easy reach of Winchelsea, Battle, Bodiam, Canterbury, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent countryside. The 'invitation only' golf links at nearby Camber are well known and the adjacent Sands are glorious at any time of the year. Golf courses can also be found at nearby St Leonard's and Seddlescombe. Other activities include sailing, windsurfing, fishing and an abundance of walks. The nature reserve at Rye Harbour boasts several hides. Cycling is an excellent way of exploring Romney Marsh using the tangle of narrow lanes, where you can discover Norman churches and 15th Century smugglers pubs. Key features • Riverside apartment on private quayside (very private and quiet) • Elevated mahogany decked balcony (south facing) to sit and relax (watch the passing boats and birdlife) • 5 minutes walk to centre of Rye • One bedroom with choice of double or twin beds • Fully fitted and well-equipped kitchen • Linen, heating & lighting are all inclusive (towels extra) • Free Wifi - reliability not guaranteed • iPod docking facility • Non-smoking apartments • Laundry facilities • Allocated parking for one car • Gas-fired central heating (well insulated warm apartments) • No other self-catering establishment in Rye offers you all this • Over 250 different guests have made repeat bookings, of which 63 have been 4 or more times , in total 828 repeat bookings!!! If you're the sort of person who hates returning to the same holiday location dare you risk that first visit ? More

About the neighbourhood
Travelling westward across Romney Marsh, the distinctive outline of Rye can be seen in the distance. It rises above the level green pastures, stretching from the sea to the far hills which formed the shoreline before the marsh was drained. Once surrounded by sea, this fortified hilltop town played an important role in the defence of the south coast of England.
