This fascinating Grade II* listed house of immense historical interest was built around 1520 and boasts the original Tudor turning staircase. This lovely, weatherboarded house is set in a beautiful, quiet cobbled street in the heart of medieval Rye. The cottage and street featured in BBC1’s Mapp and Lucia in December 2014 as the estate agent “Woolgar and Pipstow” and as Dr Dobby’s house. There was extensive filming of the street and Rye, in particular.
Flushing House has been awarded 4 stars from visitBritain and a Gold Award. Opposite the church and in the heart of the Citadel, the holiday cottage is heavily beamed throughout with a historic bread oven in the laundry room.
