Lovely, well maintained holiday house

We booked this house at short notice for a party of six wanting to spend a few days near the south coast. The house is lovely with open plan spacious living, dining and kitchen area. The table is a little on the cosy side for six and one of the double bedrooms would really be more suitable as a single as space around the bed is minimal.The house is close to everything you need, including the local supermarket, restaurants and shops. Very clean with everything we needed. The outside space is small and enclosed by a high wall but welcome nonetheless, particularly with the warm weather. The space is, however, a little scruffy and could do with being cleaned up bit to make it more attractive, it seems to be the only part of the house where little thought has been given to how it will be used. Overall a great rental property that I would highly recommend.

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├ęcor 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.
