Loved being able to open up the French windows along one entire wall of the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge. Also fantastic location and comfortable beds and seating.

The Old Forge was in excellent location for walking around Rye or for using as a base to explore this part of the UK.

A very good Holiday rental.
I know Rye well and have stayed in many holiday cottages there, The Old Forge stands up well against the competition. At first the location on a busy road might seem off putting but in reality once inside the property it is of little concern. The interior has been very well designed, the bright modern style enhances the original fabric of the building and the ground floor space is roomy and bright. The two main bedrooms are most attractive, the third is a small double, both bathrooms are contemporary and functional and the d?cor throughout is pleasing. The kitchen area benefits from being open plan and the ground floor wc is useful. I felt more could be made of the lobby at the foot of the stairs, nobody will ever sit there unless using a laptop so a desk and chair would be handy. Incidentally the wifi connection was fast. The tv worked well although strangely the DVD didn't appear to be connected but a minor point as I really enjoyed my stay. The cottage has a dedicated parking space nearby as well as being a minute from a pay and display car park. The location by The Strand is most convenient to access the heart of Rye Citadel being only a very short walk and over the years Rye has changed dramatically for the better. Most of the terrible restaurants have either disappeared or been modernised and diners now have some excellent options. Sadly the High Street area has too many empty shops and it must be difficult finding a balance between catering for residents and tourists. The Rye hinterland has some very attractive countryside, alternatively one can drive to Rye Harbour or Camber Sands and enjoy some bracing walks along the sea shore. In my opinion The Old Forge would be a seriously good option for a stay in one of the most attractive towns in the South of England.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this exceptionally well presented cottage. The interior was comfortable, warm, well designed and ideally situated being only a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. The WiFi connection was fast. Apart from the dedicated parking space for one car there is also a public car park nearby, a supermarket is within a short stroll as are excellent outlets for fresh fish, meat and local produce. There are several highly regarded restaurant options close at hand as well as pubs and cafes. In conclusion this is a first class holiday rental for all ages.

Rye is a beautiful old town with lots to do. Cottage right in the centre of town so close to everything. Very well supplied with crockery & cutlery. Beds very comfortable, lovely quilts & pillows. Old building beautifully & comfortably refurbished.
