“Miss”
Reviewed May 11, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I visited Smugglers Cottage for a weekend and loved it. It is a very pretty cottage which was clean and well equipped. The cottage is situated on Mermaid Street in the old quarter or Rye which is very charming. It provided a wonderful base suitable for a romantic break or a family holiday. I would definitely stay again.

“Great Location”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lovely house right in the middle of Rye on a picturesque cobbled street and really close to all the shops, pubs, station etc. Great for a weekend away with friends. The house was well equipped, comfortable and lovely and warm - the fire (and the abundance of firewood provided) was a real treat.

“Perfect cottage in a perfect location”
Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Smugglers Cottage is located on the most picturesque street in Rye, right in the centre with lots of restaurants to choose from, but even so, very quiet. The cottage itself is perfect, cozy but with plenty of room, and two really nice and comfortable bedrooms. The owners could not have been more helpful, and the stay made even better by extra touches such as flowers, and well stocked with those things that you often find yourself having to buy, such as washing up liquid. 5 Stars given, would definitely stay again.

“comfortable and cosey”
Reviewed June 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I have stayed at the Smugglers Cottage twice now and it never disappoints. It is situated in the centre of Rye in one of the most famous streets in England. It is quaint and very comfortable.The standard is excellent throughout the owners have thought of everything. I am looking forward to going at the end of the year.I can't imagine anyone not enjoying there stay there.
