Stayed at these apartments for a long Easter weekend. The apartment was perfect for our needs, very comfortable and in a perfect peaceful location. We particularly enjoyed the balcony sitting with a glass of wine watching all the birds on the river. The apartment is ideally located close enough to the town centre so that the car is not needed. It is also situated close to several interesting walks ie. Camber Sands, Winchelsea etc. Rye is a great place to visit with many lovely independent restaurants and good pubs, we loved The Mermaid. All in all perfect for a long weekend or indeed a longer holiday. Hope to go back soon.
My girlfriend and I arrived on the Friday afternoon (to gorgeous sunshine and a chilled bottle of champagne in the fridge) and found a clean, cosy apartment with a sweet little balcony overlooking the harbour. Rye itself is a marvellous town to visit if you like topsy turvy cobbled streets, enchanting little shops that wonderful pubs that date back centuries. Couldn't fault the weekend. We will be back!
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.
