Very nice cottage ideally placed at the heart of Rye. We had a wonderful stay and Jilly was extremely welcoming and helpful.
My partner and I have just returned from a lovely nights stay in Rye at Ockman Cottage. This is our 2nd stay at the cottage and it’s a little Gem. We would come here over and over again. Very cosy and always feel at home straight away, so beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. Everything there you need. Kitchen fully equipped to cater for your self. Absolutely fab and can not wait to return
A superb, clean, lovely cottage. My daughters had a wonderful time and Jilly our host was most helpful. Would highly recommend!
Ockman Cottage is a fabulous little bolt-hole right in the middle of Rye, a two minute walk to the bars and restaurants.
Jilly (the owner) was very communicative and gave us very clear instructions for parking and how to gain access to the cottage, as well as a few pointers for restaurants, she even left us a welcome bottle of wine which was a lovely surprise, as well as tea, coffee etc.
In terms of the technicals, the cottage is compact but has everything you could need, a good sized kitchen / dinner, a lounge area and two good sized bedrooms.
The bed was very nice (medium to firm), good quality towels and bedding, and the shower had good water pressure. All in all a wonderful little place!
In the heart of the citadel of Rye, Ockman Cottage is a rare jewel. Sitting in a quiet lane, the cottage offers guests a comfortable, relaxing, and tastefully furnished environment away from the stresses of daily life. With an open-plan living/dining area downstairs, and two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, the cottage was a perfect choice for our honeymoon; there was even a bijoux outdoor space with a table and two chairs to add to the magic. I would recommend Ockman Cottage especially to couples who want to spoil themselves without breaking the bank. Also, the owner, Jilly, is very welcoming and super efficient in terms of the booking, often answering emails within minutes. Will go back for sure !!!
Ockman cottage is of a very high standard. Everything we needed was provided and the beds were extremely comfortable. Loved how we could just walk out and be in the centre of beautiful Rye. Other places worth a visit are Batemans, Great Dixter, Bodiam Castle and Sissinghurst. Would certainly recommend staying here.
This is a cosy cottage in a good location in Rye. It’s located in a narrow closed off lane which is nice and private. We felt safe here and it was quiet (except for the seagulls!). We had a nice welcome pack with all we need to get started including a bottle of wine, thank you. Jilly also phoned on our arrival day to ensure we had settled in Okay. There are plenty of good restaurants all within walking distance. The main local supermarket is closed on Sunday and is in our opinion on the expensive side so we shopped on our return from days out. You can’t park on site but this was not really an issue for us as there is a public parking facility about 5 to 10 minute walk, at £1-50 per day except Wednesday evening and Thursday which is market day. We actually parked on street which you can do from 5-0 pm to 10-00 am legally. The locals say there are no traffic wardens and we had no problems but that is something you need to decide. The main bedroom of the cottage is fine; the second bedroom is snug with little room along the side of the bed. To be fair this is shown on the video of the cottage. The small outside sitting area was not appealing as it is small even for two and can because of its location get dirty. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need but you do have to bring your own washing machine powder which we found inconvenient. There is a £200 refundable deposit which was returned 10 days after our return.
