Rye is a magical, time-travelling experience at the best of times and my delightful stay at The Quarterhouse summed this up delightfully. It's a lovely, historical, intimate setting that's perfect for a couple or a small family. Everything is at your fingertips: TV, kitchen, great bathroom facilities and a really useful selection of information on the many things to do in the area, thoughtfully by the super-friendly owner, Sally. Plus the location couldn't be better...smack bang in the middle of Rye's main street, a step away from all its delightful shops, restaurants and galleries. If you want to stay in Rye and really soak up the atmosphere, I'd recommend forgoing the usual hotel route and spending a night or two at the Quarterhouse. It really is something to write home about.
Perfectly located on the high street in Rye . Quirky and characterful, we really liked this little place. We had a few issues but the owners did their best to resolve, we found them most helpful and friendly . Rye is an amazing little place, you feel so welcomed and safe there, it's just lovely.
We ate amazing food and drank lovely wines and didn't drain the bank account.... so perfect !!!
We loved the area already as have stayed in Hastings previously but will definitely be back to cool little Rye
The Quarter House has bags of character and is perfectly situated right in the heart of old Rye. It also has the advantage of being a couple of doors down from one of the town's best pubs.
We expected to like Rye but it exceeded our expectations and we had a happy time pottering round the town admiring the beautiful buildings. There are many excellent places to eat both snacks and meals, and some very good pubs.
We found everyone we met in Rye to be pleasant, friendly and helpful
The Quarter House is an ideal place to stay in Rye. Great location and comfortable accomodation. I can definitely recommend it.
We really loved our stay at The Quarter House - I'd highly recommend it. We travelled with young children and grandparents and everyone loved it. It's in a brilliant location with loads of period charm - very central and on a beautiful street. Not too noisy or busy, and very close to a great fish&chip shop and cafes. It has easy access to parking and shops, everything within a short walk. The loft bedroom space is slighly open plan - there's a significant dividing wall and stairs in the middle but no doors - it worked fine for us, there was more than enough space and privacy for all. Rye is a great base for beaches and exploring nearby areas. We'll definitely try and stay again.

I wish we'd had more than one night to stay in this lovely historic cottage. It was comfortable, well appointed, and easy to find (I already knew my way around Rye, so perhaps that helped). We didn't meet the owners but the instructions for finding the key were clear and we had no problems getting in. There were 4 in our party and the flat didn't feel at all cramped and we all slept comfortably.
If you are tall or not a fan of close spaces I recommend the bed on the left side of the bedroom. With windows open it can be noisy from the pub up the way and the seagulls have their own choir but I'm a sound sleeper so none of that bothered me at all.
Parking is available at either the Rope Walk car park or the Cattle Market car park near the train station for £1.50 for 24 hours and both are a very easy walk.
My only suggestion is to bring your own milk if you take it with coffee or tea since the little creamers in the cupboard were a bit past fresh, and hot cocoa would make a nice addition to the tea caddy.
That said, I would definitely book this cottage again when next visiting Rye.
A really lovely cosy cottage, very welcoming as were the owners Sally & Michel who live downstairs. Very centrally located at the end of the high street but still quite quiet too.
Wonderful fish & chips just down the road as well as other great places to eat.
Our first trip to Rye - we loved it and look forward to staying at the Quarter house again.
