“Delightful!”
Reviewed 13 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A delightful little cottage with everything you would need. And the courtyard garden had the sun all afternoon, so after a morning of exploring and a tasty lunch out it was so relaxing to plonk ourselves in the garden and relax.
Chesterfield cottage is in a great position and we even managed to get a parking space right outside the front door to unload the car and although we were only permitted to stay there for 2 hours some people left their cars there over night! But the carpark is minutes away and very reasonable at £1.50 for 24 hours.
Love to come back again.

“Charming Cottage in a charming location”
Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A perfect base for staying in Rye, all the facilities you could want for a self-catering break, the only exception being the absence of wi-fi access, which would have been nice to have. Apart from that, very good - comfortable, quirky and an excellent location.

“Cute cosy cottage in an excellent central location”
Reviewed 18 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I visited for a week with my Mum. The cottage is exactly as shown in the photographs and is as to be expected given its age and building styles when it was built small but contains everything you could need. It is on 3 floors with a well equipped kitchen and bathroom, the shower is particularly good and it is well presented and was very clean.
The location is perfect for exploring the pretty town of Rye with lots of lovely pubs, coffee shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
I would definitely recommend unless you have particular problems with steep stairs in which case you may struggle but it was perfect for us.
Richard was especially good at replying to messages and ensuring we had everything we needed for our stay.

“Cosy cottage in a beautiful town by the sea - bliss!”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We loved our three nights in Richard's beautifully cosy and compact cottage. Breakfast in the sunny, secluded garden; cooking up our favourite meals in the well equipped kitchen; climbing the winding staircase with the rope bannister to our comfortable bedroom aloft and falling asleep to the calls of seagulls. Chesterfield Cottage is at the very centre of this breathtakingly beautiful town awash with history, charm and quirkiness. We'd recommend Cafe Zara for Turkish mezze, Fig for sumptuous brunch, Kino for films, cakes and amazing coffee. Further afield we visited Sissinghurst Gardens, Battle Abbey and the 1066 battlefields, Bodiam Castle, Dungeness and Rye harbour nature reserves plus we downloaded an audio guide and explored all the cobbled streets and secret alleys of Rye. Thank you Richard for making our lovely break possible.

“Beautiful little cottage - perfect for holiday stay”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in Chesterfield Cottage 4 days in the beginning of May and had the most pleasant holiday. I can really recommend to book it. The cottage is fully equipped - even with a washing machine. We also found a bbq, which can be used in the backyard, which is really sunny in the (late) afternoon and where we sat and relaxed after a day of walking. Just a few metres away from the cottage you will find several very good restaurants. The oven in the living room was already prepared when we arrived which was nice, as the first night became a bit chilly. But we just had to light the oven and it became cosy & warm very quick. We really might come back some day again!
