The Old Forge was in excellent location for walking around Rye or for using as a base to explore this part of the UK.

Loved being able to open up the French windows along one entire wall of the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge. Also fantastic location and comfortable beds and seating.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this exceptionally well presented cottage. The interior was comfortable, warm, well designed and ideally situated being only a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. The WiFi connection was fast. Apart from the dedicated parking space for one car there is also a public car park nearby, a supermarket is within a short stroll as are excellent outlets for fresh fish, meat and local produce. There are several highly regarded restaurant options close at hand as well as pubs and cafes. In conclusion this is a first class holiday rental for all ages.

The Old Forge was delightful, it was well equipped and in a stunning location. We could not have asked for more!

The well furnished lounge dining room and kitchen with everything we needed for our weeks stay. Lovely big fridge and freezer and dishwasher with sufficient cutlery. Plenty of soft fluffy towels and the heating was easily controlled.

Rye is a beautiful old town with lots to do. Cottage right in the centre of town so close to everything. Very well supplied with crockery cutlery. Beds very comfortable, lovely quilts pillows. Old building beautifully comfortably refurbished.

A very well presented house. Good facilities in the house, which is within easy reach of all of Rye town by foot. We had a very comfortable stay.

Fantastic location, spacious and clean property, ideal for a short break in Rye. Close to some great pubs and the best of the antique shops. Also walking distance to the supermarket (Budgens, five minutes away). Would certainly recommend to friends who were similarly wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Kitchen and lounge were especially well presented.

We loved The Old Forge. The accommodation surpassed our expectations with very spacious living area, very clean, everything you need available in the house. Would definitely recommend this accommodation and will try to get back there again.

A bright modern property in an excellent location within a charming town.

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.
