Rye, East Sussex, England
The Mount is a magnificent 500 year old Tudor house, reputed to have been built as Lord Guldeford's summer residence. The detached house is full of character with oak beams and lovely stone, tile and oak flooring, some uneven and sloping floors with some wonderful nooks and crannies to discover. The house is well appointed and comfortably furnished in keeping with its period. With the large enclosed garden and lovely views there's no need to leave.

East Guldeford is on the edge of Romney Marsh, Located just 1 mile from the Ancient town of Rye and 3 miles to Camber Sands. There is a wealth of good walks from the property and cycle routes.

A perfect venue for a family celebration. Well equipped, comfortable and of course a great chance to stay in a Tudor house. Friendly, helpful owners. There's a convenient Farm Shop just next door as well. Great to be able to have all 11 of us in one house for a week. Enjoyed by all - age range 4 to 71....

Management response:

Thank you, so glad you had a lovely time. Bernie

We would definitely recommend The Mount. A beautiful old building with lots of character. We had a fantastic stay with all the family. Everyone, inluding the teenagers, enjoyed it! We were a party of 10 and there was lots of space, so were never under each others feet. Even the bad weather didn't put a dampener on things. Will hopefully...

Many thanks Richard for your review and hope to see you again. Bernie

About the neighbourhood
Hastings is synonymous with 1066 when William the Conqueror and his Norman army defeated King Harold at Battle. William built an Abbey in the picturesque town of Battle to celebrate his conquest and left a legacy of Norman Churches and Castles throughout the South East.

Of particular note are the beautiful moated castles at Herstmonceaux and Bodiam. Other attractions in the area are the gorgeous gardens at Great Dixter and the intriguing follies built by Mad Jack Fuller at Brightling. Rye and Burwash are just two of the many enchanting towns and villages to explore in this part of Sussex that is so rich in history and natural charm.
