Fabulous 'New England' style beach house with stunning sea views! The house is set on The Ridge just yards from Winchelsea Beach, near Rye in East Sussex. The house was featured in Coast Magazine in 2008 and Real Homes magazine Aug 2010. Located in the small village of Winchelsea Beach - where marshland meets the sea, the shingle beach gives way to flat wet sand at low tide. A wonderful four-mile walk is to follow the sea wall eastwards- stopping at the Bird Reserve, then following the River Rother towards Rye and returning across the field tracks past Camber Castle. Whether you want to go surfing, cycling, walking or beach-combing, Bramble Tye is the perfect place to sit back and decide - either in the summer house or gazing across the sea from your balcony.

Let it blow !
We had a stormy few days at Winchelsea Beach for my birthday in late November, with a strong winds that rattled the roof slates and lashing rain but the house was a warm and very comfortable sanctuary. We really enjoyed our stay, the house is well provisioned, light and airy and the big spaces are very flexible.....a visiting toddler had lots of room to explore. Being so close to the sea was wonderful and there are lots of local places to visit. We plan to return.

Nice beach house in a good location
We were two couples and enjoyed staying at this beach house. It had good amenities and plenty of room for us. The lounge seating downstairs was a bit hard, while the seating upstairs had seen better days. It was in a good location for visiting the surrounding area.

Close to the beach
This is a nice house close to the beach at Winchelsea. The beach is lovely, but not fitted for swimming. Lots og small stones/pebbles There are nice paths for walking/bicycling The house is ok, but needs a bit of updating.In its glory it was fitted for inerior magazines, but not now. As Scandinavians we recognize that most of the interior is bought at IKEA. Nothing wrong with that, But worn out ikea is not so charming. The pillows and mattresses of the livingroom downstairs need a renovation. Very few glasses in the kitchen

Beautiful Beach Home
I would definitely recommend this lovely beach house. The beech is on the doorstep and it is located well for visit to Hastings, Battle, Rye and even Brighton. The house is very well equipped with everything you need. Everything was clean, tidy and done to a high standard. We had a lovely week and the weather was very kind to us.

Beautiful Beach House in Brilliant Location
This was perfect for a reunion of friends. Great open plan areas for gathering on the ground floor & upstairs. Comfortable, & attractive beach house décor themes. Spent most of the time in the upstairs living room with its wonderful views over the sea & nature reserve. Lovely seaside walks along unspoilt quiet pebble beach. Linen provision etc basic but adequate. Suggest a sun umbrella would be a useful addition to the garden furniture in the back garden. Co-op a few mins walk away is handy for provisions.

Amazing beach house!
We have just arrived home from the most fantastic short break in this magical beach house! I honestly fell in love with this beautiful property. It was such a delight to stay in a rental that you could tell was so very loved and well looked after by its owners. The interior was immaculate, and the owners were so helpful, answering any questions/queries straight away. We miss it already and will definitely be back! 😀

Lovely break by the sea
A lovely house in a great location! We loved the upstairs sitting room particularly. There was only two of us on this trip and we were rattling around a bit because there was plenty of space for a big group. Excellent location near the beach with lovely walks along the nature reserve. Nearby Rye is delightful. Great owners who were easy to contact and gave excellent instructions about the property, many thanks!

About the neighborhood
Winchelsea Beach village sits in one of the few remaining comparatively undeveloped parts of the south coast. Just inland, between the coast road and the sea is a quiet and beautiful shingle landscape known as 'The Ridges' and this is where the holiday cottage is located. The whole area is a protected wildlife sanctuary - Rye Harbour Nature Reserve - with flocks of birds and open and empty spaces. The beach is peaceful and never particularly crowded with shingle at high tide and level sand at low tide. When the tide is far out, there is a large, almost flat area - ideal for walking and shrimping.. Swimming is safe and best at high tide and Winchelsea has regularly received a Clean Beach Award. A wonderful 4-mile walk or cycle follows the sea wall eastwards- first stopping at the hides of the Bird Reserve, next following the River Rother towards Rye and then returning across the field tracks past Camber Castle. There is a playing field at Winchelsea Beach with a basket ball court and a small play park for children. For the more adventurous the Rye Watersports Centre in Camber (approx five miles from the holiday cottage) offers sailing, windsurfing and kite-surfing courses for all ages. The beach at Camber is an award-winning, two mile long, sandy beach. Many golf course surround the area and there is a tennis club in Rye. Wincheslea Beach has facilities including: a church, doctor's surgery, The Ship - an award winning butcher/ deli/ restaurant which sells bread from the Lighthouse Bakery in Robertsbridge, plus a local pub, Co-Op and a post-office. Main supermarkets are in Rye (Jempsons) and Hastings (all major supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsburys and Marks & Spencer) There is a Waitrose in Tenterden (30 mins by car).
