“Absolutely charming place to stay”

Reviewed 18 Jun

We loved our stay at Flushing House. It is a beautiful, well-maintained period property. We had a friend join us, and it was perfect for the three of us. It is a very well-equipped house. The owners are lovely, and were very helpful. Flushing House is centrally located – close to everything in Rye. Everything is within walkiing distance – numerous pubs, restaurants,loads of shops, supermarket, local market on Thursdays, wonderful church and museums – and lots to do in the nearby area e.g. Camber Beach, Winchelsea Beach. Can highly recommend both Flushing House and Rye.

Thanks so much for your really positive review; it was a pleasure having you as our guests.

“Exceeded our expectations”

Reviewed 3 Jun

This is a charming old property, seeped in history. The four of us found it roomy, well equipped, clean and in a delightful setting with lovely shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance. There is no outside space, but the church, castle and grounds are only a stone’s throw away so that wasn’t a problem. If you don’t manage to find any street parking, there is a car park about 10 minutes walk away and for £1.50 a day, this is wasn’t a problem either. The owner lives next door and was very pleasant and helpful. The staircase is narrow and twisty so not suitable for anyone with mobility problems, but otherwise it just adds to the charm. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here.

“A Tudor Treat”

Reviewed 30 Apr

A friend and I stayed at this lovely characterful cottage that was well equipped, situated near the beautiful church square at the top of Rye Citadel. Rye is a great place to explore, full of charming gift shops and great places to eat, plus there are plenty of castles nearby to explore. Parking can be tricky, I would recommend travelling by train or taking a small car. We did manage to get parked on the road near the house sometimes but otherwise its a 10 minute walk to a public car park.

Many thanks for your kind words about cottage and our lovely town! Really glad you enjoyed your stay.

“Lovely property!”

Reviewed 3 Sep

The Flushing House is like stepping back to a bygone era it’s simply wonderful. Irene was a delight to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. The only things you could pick up are the stairs could be tricky for the elderly / less able and the shower downstairs is a little cramped if you’re over 6 foot in height but they’re in keeping with the age and uniqueness of the property and utterly charming regardless. All in all a wonderful weekend.

“Wonderful house and a wonderful town”

Reviewed 4 Feb

Had a three night break here with friends, we completely loved the house and the town. Cosy and quaint, and very pleasant owners. Would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a relaxed spell away.

“Oustandingly comfortable and well appointed”

Reviewed 25 Aug

The accommodation and welcome we received from the owners who live next door exceeded our expectations. Our short stay (two married couples) was memorable and trouble-free. We’d happily recommend this to friends and would love to return when the opportunity comes. Fine restaurants within easy walking distance too.

“Perfect house in a perfect place”

Reviewed 13 Apr

A lovely stay in a house so well preserved with its history there to be seen. We arrived prepared to be a little chilly in such a historic house but were not for a moment, the house is very warm and comfortable, immaculately and sensitively updated and decorated, and very well equipped. Lovely welcome from the owners who are right there if needed.The situation is perfect, with shops, several very nice (and dog friendly) pub restaurants and the Ypres tower right on the doorstep. Parking down in the lower car park was necessary on most days but was a five minute walk at most through the town which was a pleasure in itself. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and wished we’d booked for two weeks instead of one, did not want to leave. Lovely base from which to explore Rye and the surrounding area. We’d particularly recommend very nearby Wichelsea beach for dog owners as a quiet and easy place to walk off the lead while enjoying the view. (And pop into the deli hidden inside the Ship Inn on the way, particularly if you want to take home some locally bred salt marsh lamb.)

“Perfect!”

Absolutely fabulous house. Very quirky but very comfortable and with everything you could possibly need. Fantastic location in the town. We only stayed a weekend but wished it could have been longer.

“Tudor meets the 21st Century – utterly unique”

Reviewed 10 Feb

Rye is steeped in history and staying at the Flushing House makes sure you are well and truly steeped. Unless you have stayed here it is difficult to imagine a house that was built in the early 16th century being full of the modern requirements of the 21st century – but it is and that is its charm. From the Tudor period we have the black oak beams, the giant ancient floorboards, the staircase, the baker’s oven and so on. From the 21st century we have the microwave, the flat screen TV, WiFi and shower. Rye is the most incredible example of aTudor town. There are too many ancient buildings to list here but suffice to say you’ll be kept busy on that front. The owners are brilliant too and provide a depth of service and friendliness that is so rare in this day and age. Do you and your family and/or friends a favour and book some time away to stay at this historic house you’ll be amazed.

“Clean, charming and cosy”

Reviewed 21 Jul

The cottage was delightful, the owners very helpful and lovely. We were right in the centre of Rye, yet very peaceful. I would have no hesitation in staying here again. The cottage had everything you could possible want plus more. So, so clean and very cosy. Me, my mother and young daughter loved it.
