In a word, Ockman Cottage is simply "wonderful." This well-appointed cottage is warm and cozy and is centrally located in the historic town of Rye, East Sussex. My wife and I spent a week here and just loved waking up in this beautiful home. Jilly, the owner, was delightful to speak with and was concerned for her guests’ comfort and well being. If you are considering a visit to Rye, East Sussex, a stay at the Ockman Cottage is a must.
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.
