Good centre for walking, for culture and food. The apartment allowed us to relax in a way that a hotel would not. We were in a situation where we required a peaceful space which The Boat House provided.
Perfectly situated apartment right on the river. Only a short walk to pubs and restaurants and of course the fantastic shops in the beautiful Rye.
Very clean and comfortable with a full stock of kitchen equipment and everything else you would need to make a perfect and restful Holiday.
Enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a cup of morning coffee watching all the local wildlife enjoy the river.
A perfect base for long walks or trips out in the car. So many interesting places to visit.
Cant wait to come back.
We had a good time in Rye and enjoyed our stay at The Boathouse. The quiet riverside apartment complements the lively town. It's surprisingly near to the architecture and the bustle, yet a world apart.
The beds are very comfortable. The flat has everything one would need for a short-stay holiday. (We couldn't make the bottom oven work, but that might have been down to us.)
The parking is a great benefit. The walk from the Boathouse to the Strand takes a few minutes. From there, the town is at your feet. On returning, the steps that lead down from the Hope Anchor Hotel in Watchbell Street (Trader's Passage steps) offer a convenient shortcut.
The local Churches were a highlight. We meandered across the marshes to a few isolated villages, each with its distinctive, characterful Church.
Just above the Marsh, on Oxney, near Appledore, is Stone Church. This is a wonderful space, particularly inside. The views over the countryside are delightful.
The best views across the whole expanse of the Marsh are from Lympne. You access the lookout point by a little footpath that leaves the road at the last bend before you reach the (private) castle.
On arrival at The Boathouse, we appreciated the things that had been left out to welcome us -- the makings for tea and a bottle of bubbly. The decor was agreeable. The owner's artworks fitted in well. We hope to visit again.
What a great place to stay, ideal location and the veranda was an added bonus as we had beautiful weather. Everything inside was to an excellent standard.
It was lovely to be able to walk into Rye from here and not need the car until we left.
A pleasure to deal with Chris, thanks for the bubbly!! Looking forward to returning at some point.

We had a lovely lazy time in rye, soaking up the atmosphere. the flat was a brilliant base, being so near the high street, but so peaceful with the river gently flowing outside and the distant wind turbines slowly turning. A great place to chill out.
