    The Old Vicarage sleeping up to 12 guests

    This larger, period holiday property is in an ideal location for exploring Sussex with beaches and historic Cinque ports.
    Built in 1820, this elegant, classic Grade ll listed, adjoining Georgian family home retains many original features. It is an ideal holiday destination for extended families and groups of friends, just 5 miles from the Cinque port town of Rye. The stylish accommodation is spread over three floors. There is an open plan drawing room and dining room, with a welcoming fireplace, a games room with pool table for some after dinner entertainment or chilly day recreation, complete with wood-burning stove! The light and airy conservatory is also a congenial place in which to relax and catch up with the Sunday papers. When the weather is fine, take full advantage of the mature gardens spread out to the side and front of S42178 and enjoy a glass of wine, or a picnic in the summerhouse. The attractive terrace also loans itself to alfresco dining. From the upper floors there are views across the beautiful countryside with sheep filled fields and apple orchards, with Rye in the distance and even glimpses of the sea! There is a camra award-winning pub which serves good food, a local shop and a public park with playground within walking distance, and footpaths close by. Visit the cobbled, medieval town of Rye, 5 miles, and explore the art galleries, tea rooms and antique shops. There is also a leisure centre. Winchelsea, described by Kipling as a ‘port of stranded pride’ with distant sea glimpses, offers hidden wine cellars beneath the wide streets to discover, once embroiled in the town’s smuggling past!. Winchelsea beach and Rye Nature Reserve are great for bird spotting, and Camber offers miles of golden sand dunes. Vineyards and National Trust properties and gardens abound. Rye station connects with Ashford and London St Pancras station, and also mainland Europe. There are local buses to Hastings and Rye. There is a popular pub/restaurant nearby and it is recommended that large parties pre-book to avoid disappointment. Beach 3½ miles. Shop 2 miles, pub 440 yards and restaurant ½ mile.

    "We've enjoyed a wonderful family weekend at the beautiful Old Vicarage. Would highly recommend it."
    Michael – 20 Nov 2018
    "One of the best our group have stayed in. We enjoyed the space and comfortable rooms. All the bedrooms are beautiful and beds comfortable. The lounge/dining room is really good for large groups. We were 10 adults and we ate around the table easily. The kitchen is very well equipped and appointed with two ovens, large fridge/freezer and another pantry with a fridge. Car parking for 6 cars. Highly recommended.The local pub is 5 minutes walk and is good food and value, very cosy too."

    "A lovely property, plenty of room very suitable for a family get together. Very well equipped and the owners were most helpful. The welcome pack and sweets in every room were much appreciated. Plenty to see and do in the area."
    Susie – 28 Apr 2018
    "We had a wonderful stay at S42178. It’s a beautiful house with plenty of room and comfort for us all (11 staying). We went to Camber Sands as the sun was shining all weekend! We were going to go to Rye but decided to walk to the local pub instead and sit in the sunshine! We had a wonderful stay and hope to come back again soon. Maybe we will see Rye on our next visit. Thanks Diane for a wonderful stay."
    Sally – 13 Apr 2018
    "Perfect place for a family get together for 11 of us plus one dog. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, very sociable seating areas in kitchen, around the dining table, sitting room and sun room. Attractively decorated inside and with a beautiful garden outside. We enjoyed walks from the door, including a short one to the local pub. Also a short drive to the sea and the pretty town of Rye. Highly Recommended!"

    "We stayed here for my grandsons birthday,my 65th birthday and Mothers Day,four generations.S42178 exceeded our expectations,it was spacious,clean,comfortable ,with a dream kitchen,that was well equipped.The bedrooms were mostly en suite and we all found the one which suited our needs.The location meant that some could commute,or come and go as needed ,less than a two hour drive.I really couldn't fault it,from the open fire,games room,utility and pantry plus lovely grounds and parking."
    Carol – 24 Feb 2018
    "We had an exellent stay in S42178. The house is big but doesn't feel it. There was a lovely ambiance."
    Paul – 11 Feb 2018
    "We had a fantastic week staying at this lovely house and it was perfect for our needs. It has 6 good sized rooms for 12 adults, with everyone commenting on how comfortable the bed matresses are. Note that the 2 large rooms upstairs have limited space in the ensuite due to height restrictions.The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed present.The house is also very nicely furnished with lots of lovely little touches everywhere.The welcome basket was welcomed with an initial supply of bread, milk, etc and red and white wine.The house was nice and warm despite being winter and very cold outside during February.The Queens Head pub down the road is just 5 mins walk away, serving excellent food and drink. Be sure to book though as it gets busy everyday.Overall, we were extremely pleased with the cottage. Not only is it ideal for a large party but is an excellent base for exploring the area. We would definately recommended it and hope to be back another year."
