Visitor's Book comments for this apartment

We had a wonderful night at the Boathouse.

Amazing waking up to birdsong by the river J     

Mr & Mrs Bristow                                                                          7 May 2018


Enjoyed our stay and would recommend SI Italian and The Ship in the Strand.

Also lots of coffee shops in town. Nature Reserve at Rye Harbour is a nice walk.

Jo & Bill Hill                                                                                 14 May 2018


For a fun lunch try Bosun’s Bite at Rye Harbour. Delightful waitress makes it fun and food is good.             

Kathy Burvil                                                                                     30 June 2018


Lovely week. Got to Royal Tunbridge Wells this time to see Pantiles, also the

Wetherspoons Old Opera House, Great Dixter, Camber Sands & Dungeness. Lots to do & Rye a lovely town to wander round.                      

R. & A. Sutherland                        Hereford                                  12th July 2018


Very happy with our stay.

Great location to travel about to see the sights.

Comfortable apartment with really nice bed. Will be back!!            

Margaret                                        London                       19th August – 22nd August 18


Lovely apartment as a base for us to go water-skiing @ Action Watersports. Was very cosy when weather turned on us! Will be back. 

Marianne & Nick                           Wales                                25th – 27th August


Lost count of how many years we’ve been coming to the Boathouse, but we love it & the appeal of all the surrounding area.

The Standard and Webbe’s always our favourite.

Thanks Chris for the bubbly. Home from home!!!          

Martin & Marie                 Cotswolds Gloucestershire            15th – 22nd Sept 2018


Fabulous 11 days of sunshine! Great walks in all directions and many local pubs visited. ‘The Bell’ a surprise for great lunch. ‘Simply Italian’ food as ever but beware the local Indian restaurants!

Excellent times on Nature Reserve & fab walk across golf course to Camber. Thanks Chris for everything!!   

Chris & Maggie                            Greenwich London                  6th – 17th October 2018


Once again Chris Thank you for a great week. We did not know it was our 10th time. The weather has been good and we drank our bubbles outside.

Thank you. John & Margaret

John & Margaret Cousins                                                                        23rd – 31st Oct


We started our visit in No16 and moved here because we did not want to go home. Our third visit and everything as peaceful as we remembered. Apartments as well looked after as ever Chris, thank you for the bottle of bubbles.

Pat & Tony Northrop                      Mirfield West Yorks                  22 – 25th May 2016


Beautiful sunny Sunday on Camber Sands.

Really enjoyed watching the tides and the ducks – especially the bossy duck who pecks toes – sweet.

Cath & John                                                                                         18-20 June


Despite weather we have had a lovely holiday,

No 11 was comfortable and the views very interesting.

Would recommend apartment to anyone who wants a good nights sleep in a nice quiet area. Hope who is reading this has as good a holiday as we have. Thanks Chris.

Barry & Gill H.                         Peterborough                                        1/7/16


Just what I wanted! Lovely place to spend a few days. Will pass on the details to others. Many thanks for the stay here and for the wine.

Do visit Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) & Lamb House – well worth it!

Bob Douglas                                                                Sat 2nd – Wed 6th July 2016


For a last minute booking this has been just what we wanted, very relaxing. Comfortable accommodation with great views, good for watching boats passing or birds feeding, depending on the tide! Location just outside Rye is also good, as the town gets very busy. Lots to do and see in the area.

Suggested places to visit include Battle Abbey, Dungeness Old Lighthouse, Winchelsea Church, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve (including Avocet Tea Room) and Bateman’s – lovely house and gardens. Good food at Simply Italian, Marine’s Fish Bar and Rye Deli. Decent supermarket – Jempsons at Peasmarsh.

We had a great week and would love to stay again. Thank you and thanks for the bubbly.

Jane and Brendan Sheehan             Leeds, West Yorkshire    31st July – 7th August 2016


We loved the peaceful, private location, the light coming through the big windows and the chance to sit out on the decking whenever the weather was kind enough. Lots of National Trust properties and gardens to explore as well as pretty Rye itself. Enjoyed the strange beauty of Dungeness Nature Reserve RSPB and seeing avocets and their chicks at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.        

Janette & Nick Munton, Leeds 23rd June 2015


All good things come to and end – far too quickly!

Loved walking to Winchelsea & Camber Castle – Winchelsea Church is amazing (find Spike Milligan’s grave too!)

Dungeness lighthouse offered superb views as did Rye Church Tower. A very peaceful time, allowing us to recharge our batteries.

Will, hopefully, return to this special place. 

Anne & Glyn Williams, Horsham West Sussex 6-10 July 2015


Fish & chips > Kettle o’ Fish – Takeaway and sit by the river.

Lovely coffee > Café des Fleurs – next to Rye Station.

Doner Kebab > Rye Grill – next to Royal Mail.

I would definitely recommend all the above!

Fantastic apartment & location! Peaceful. Will definitely return.           

Janet & Rob Cross, Tilbury Essex August Bank Hol 2015


Yet another wonderful week & all in all lucky with the weather.

Cycled to New Romney > Dungeness & Tenterden, via Iden along the Royal Military Road coming back – especially on sunny days & finishing off in our favourite eateries – Webbe’s, Thai & The Standard.

The Apothecary serves lovely coffee & cake! Thanks again Chris, & thanks for the bubbly & our stay at this comfortable abode !!        

Martin & Marie Clarke, Winchcombe Gloucestershire 19/9 – 26/9/15


Another year in this beautiful place, peaceful & hidden & yet so near to town to sample all the eateries or just browse.

Favourite places

ˇ         Ypres Castle

ˇ         Webbe’s Fish restaurant

ˇ         Thai restaurant

Had wonderful weather this week – fantastic for cycling – lovely countryside – Military Road – Appledore – Romney Marshes – Dungeness – Winchelsea.

We just keep returning to this magical place & next time we come we’ll know whether or not Scotland will be independent!! We vote NO!!!

Thanks Chris - & As ever, thanks for the bubbles.

Martin & Marie Clarke,              Selkirk – Scottish Borders              6/9/14 – 13/9/14


We had a very peaceful stay. We enjoyed Rye and Camber Sands Beach was very relaxing. We can recommend St Mary’s Church in Rye, and if you can go up to tower, where you have a great view of all the surroundings; take care not to go when the bells are just about to ring though, it can be a little loud, seeing you’ll be literally one step away from them!

Chris & Ana,                            Brighton                                 24-27/04/2014

Lovely few days. Would highly recommend Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. We’re not really big bird watchers but a small pair of binoculars plus all the info provided in the hides made it very enjoyable. Best thing was Avocet chicks! Also the wildflowers are stunning at the moment. And free car park! Best veggie meals out at Ship Inn and Ypres Inn, ate in garden at latter. Aaron says very good for carnivores too! BBC currently filming a series of Mapp and Lucia around the town and Aaron spotted the dad from ‘Friday Night Dinner’ jogging around the town – very exciting! Thanks for a lovely stay.

Cathie and Aaron Stanley                         (Norwich)                      16/06  - 20/06 2014


Lovely and relaxing break away. The location is fantastic and so peaceful. We went to Camber yesterday and walked along the sandy beach, just perfect. We will come back again. We would recommend Carey’s fish & steak restaurant & the Italian. Thank you for the bubbly. Xx

Donna & Pete                                                                             27th – 29th June 2014


A most enjoyable visit and one that will be repeated.

Although not my first visit to Rye I now see it in a new light. Thanks for the bubbly.

Nick & Jan Humphreys,              Waijeke Island, New Zealand         30 June – 3 July


Terrific peaceful spot to unwind – amazing light & sun in morning.

Great coffee, breakfast & atmosphere at ‘The Apothecary’ in Rye. Also The Mermaid Café at bottom of hill, Deli good.

Great places to visit: Bodiam Castle, Battle, Beachy Head (good food at Tiger Inn, East Dean, nice deli there too!)

Camber Sands for bracing walk & Rye Nature Reserve.

Virr                                                                                                30/9/14 – 5/10/14


Another lovely Christmas in Rye

Jacky & Trevor                                                                            20.12.14 to 27.12.14


We have had a very relaxed time here in No11. The flat is so welcoming & well equipped. Hired bikes & went to Rye Harbour nature reserve. Such wonderful beaches & open skies.

The medieval church of St.Thomas a’Becket on Romney Marsh well worth a visit & we enjoyed a trip to Hastings.

The clock tower in Rye church is a must!

Many thanks. We hope to be back.

Patsy & Alec Fostiropoulos                                                     14th – 19th Oct


After a truly awful summer we came to the Boathouse for a week of R&R! The usual magic of peace & tranquillity worked & we have had a lovely week. Weather good – very warm & dry until Friday p.m. We couldn’t ask for more in October. Apartment , as usual, sparkling clean & cosy. Many thanks for the tea & wine – much appreciated.

Jean & Allan                                          Tonbridge                     5th -12th October


This was our first stay in this area and we could not have picked a better spot! Comfortable apartment and Rye is a joy to explore. The bubbly was an added extra – thank you.

We also had lunch at the Shepherd Neame Inn in Battle – really good value, and friendly staff. The farm shop & café (Beryl’s) on the road out of Rye to Camber is also well worth a visit.    

Janice & Fred Wheatley                        Derbyshire                                7-14 Sept


This is the first time I have returned to this area since I was 3 years old and got lost on the beach at Camber Sands much to the horror of my mother! It left an impact on my memory & I have always wanted to return. We have absolutely loved our week here. So much to explore & the most wonderful places to eat. We have sampled the delights of Edith’s House, Cobbles, Hayden’s, The Ambrette & SI.

Would recommend all – I feel a diet awaiting on our return home.

The apartment is a ‘gem of a find’ as my husband described it after spending some time one morning taking in the scenery from the balcony. Love the neighbours – 4 ostriches & 3 baby seagulls – didn’t feed them despite being desperate to! So thank-you so much for this lovely experience. We hope to be back to experience the area by autumn/winter. PS Highly recommend a visit to Battle to see the abbey etc.

Ruth & Simon Trevellyan                       Essex                                       16-08-13


This was our first trip to the south of England and we enjoyed it a lot.

Rye is a lovely old town. We couldn’t get enough pictures of it.

Beachy Head & 7 Sisters is a must do, when the weather is fine.

Thank you Chris for the fast email supply. You’ve really helped us.

A special thank you for the nice “welcome package”.    

Annika  & Hendrik -                             Wiesbaden  Germany                03-10 Aug 13


Lovely apartment in great setting. Thank you for the wine! We have never visited this area before. Beautiful weather all week. We found Rye itself very pleasant and enjoyed walking round the cobbled streets and alleyways, particularly in the evening. As NT members we were overwhelmed with places to visit. We chose Bateman’s (absolutely beautiful), Bodiam Castle and Lamb House. We also visited the battlefield at Battle. We were spoilt for beaches with Camber and Winchelsea close at hand. We also found the old part of Hastings particularly interesting, especially the Net Houses and museum. The West Funicular railway takes you to a very pleasant cliff area and café. We need to come again because there is so much we did not have time to visit.

Kate & Ted Beech,                                           West Midlands             20/27 July 2013


Great late autumn break including Rye’s spectacular Bonfire night.

Latest discover Jerwood Gallery in Hastings and Old Town. Definitely worth a visit as well as new developments in Rye Harbour Reserve.         

M & J                                                               London E1                    2-12/11/12

Our second stay at No11, and just as enjoyable as before. Weather milder this year and despite rain and wind most days, we got walks in everyday.

Our favourite tea room was Swan Cottage – very friendly and excellent toasted tea cakes and cream teas! Marino’s Fish Bar was fantastic – the best rock eel & chips we’ve ever had! The Standard Inn was still the cosiest pub although real ale missing on New Year’s Day. The George Inn surprised us with 2 excellent beers. The Queen’s Head and Robin Hood at Icklesham are highly recommended. PS. Thanks again for the fizz.                 

Alan & Linda                         27th Dec – 3rd January 2012


Thank you for yet another restful, peaceful week Chris.

As usual, the apartment is perfect. The week was finished off perfectly with a seal swimming by to see us off.           

John & Margaret, Eton, Windsor             11-th – 18th Feb 2012


Last minute escape from London – returned to my spiritual home for a wonderful week of walks, coffee shops and R&R. Feel recharged to do battle again.

Thanks Chris and No11 was my first & loved being back. X           

Donna, Kent              25th Feb – 3rd Mar ‘12


We have enjoyed our stay at the Boathouse with fine, warm weather virtually throughout. Many interesting excursions including Dungeness and the RSPB Reserve there, Great Dixter Gardens (Northiam) and the recently opened Jerwood Gallery on the beach at Hastings. Rye itself; always a joy, particularly atmospheric in the early mornings and evenings.         

Robert & Pauline, Oxfordshire                         28/3/12 to 4/4/12


This is our first stay in the Boathouse & Rye.

Recommend Simply Italian and Haydens Coffee Shop.

Weather has been varied but have been able to do most of what we wanted. Rye lovely old town to browse around. Recommend Sissinghurst Gardens N. Trust. Chartwell House N. Trust.

Tried Scotney Castle but they had shut gardens due to high winds! The flat is lovely & comfortable, warm & quiet. We’ve seen 2 Oystercatchers, 2 Shelducks, Black headed gulls and Barn Owl. Thank you Chris         

Ali & Rob, Hereford             21/4/12 to 28/4/12


We really enjoyed the tranquillity and the view in this comfortable flat, in spite of the rainy weather. The walk from Rye Harbour to Winchelsea Beach offered hides from which we saw, among others, avocets & nesting terns with their young, We don’t own a car & managed to reach Dungeness & Derek Jarman’s cottage via bus to Lydd and a walk. Hayden’s Coffee House – perfect coffee & newspapers – was a great place to shelter from the rain!   

Sian and Norman Oxford                         2/6/2012 – 9/6/2012


First holiday in this area & first time at the Boathouse. In both cases, a sheer delight & we will definitely be back! The apartment was great & couldn’t have been in a more peaceful setting.

Rye is a beautiful town & we enjoyed eating at The Ambrette, The Lemon Grass (Thai) Restaurant and especially at Webbe’s Fish Restaurant. As a birdwatcher, I was particularly amused by the sight of ostriches! A great week – and many thanks for the fizz!                 

Sally & Bob Aldbourne, Wiltshire                         23.6.12 – 30.6.12


1st holiday in Rye, lots to do and see in the town.

We loved the wildlife and have seen plenty this week. Outside of the apartment we have seen collared doves, crows, heron, oystercatchers, terms, herring gulls, swallows and a cormorant as well as ducks, rabbits on the far bank, ostriches & emus in the opposite field!!

Rye Harbour Nature Reserve – free parking or walk from Rye via Camber Castle, we have seen terns with their chicks, herring gulls, avocets, cormorants, swans, goldfinches, linnets, sky larks, crested grebe, tufted ducks, mallards, oystercatchers, kestrel, egrets, swallows, shelducks, marsh harrier, lapwings, Canada geese, greylag geese & a seal entering the river at the harbour during the tide rising!! A great place to come back to!! Thanks for the welcome bottle of fizz.    

Gail & Paul                         21/07/12 28/07/12


Enjoyed ourselves in this well-equipped and enjoyable apartment. Very clean on arrival and all instructions spot on. Bird Life in week fascinating, passing yachts and boat people very friendly. Anyone interested in ships/warships, there is a former Royal Navy patrol/torpedo boat being refurbished in Rye Harbour, the hull of these superb vessels were made of wood as was most of them, very fast, very exciting to be aboard at sea!!            

Ronald & Rita. East Anglia, England             28-7-12 3rd August 2012

This is our 3rd time to this beautiful part of the country in this lovely comfortable apartment & we are never disappointed – Fabulous weather which has made cycling and walking a treat!!

Thank you for the bubbly & tea tray – very welcoming. Will be back next year!!!

Last evening tried “The Ambrette” – posh Indian restaurant. Mixed review, lovely food but waited an age between courses. Would be interested to hear what others felt about the experience???  

Martin & Marie, Scottish Borders             1st Sept – 8th Sept


Lovely quiet sheltered spot. Enjoyed watching the changing river & tides & birds.

Flat very comfortable & well equipped.
