Property Description

Shared swimming pool (May-Sept)

A period weather boarded cottage offering far reaching views across the marshes to the Citadel at Rye and shared use of the owners above ground swimming pool. Situated snug in its hilltop setting amongst tile-hung cottages and award winning tea shops. Seven centuries ago, the new town was founded by Edward I to take the place of an older town of the same name which had been lost to the sea in a series of storms and now lies beneath the waters of Rye Bay. It became a bustling cinque port town and the centre of the wine trade with France with a smuggling history and hidden wine cellars beneath the broad streets, and it is the smallest town in the country to have its own mayor. Visit the museum and the 13th century church. Home to the writers Thackeray and Conrad, the actress Ellen Terry, and Millais was inspired to paint his famous portrait ’The Blind Girl’ with Winchelsea in the background. Winchelsea is situated where the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty meets Romney Marsh. There is an unspoilt shingle beach within a mile – take your shrimping net and binoculars to observe the many birds that frequent the area at low tide or explore the sands and rolling dunes at Camber, 7 miles. Rye, Hastings and Battle are all a short drive away. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

Ground floor: Living room with double sofa bed/dining room/kitchen. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. Open tread stairs (open to one side) to first floor: 1 double bedroom. Steep, narrow stairs to second floor: 1 twin bedroom.

Gas central heating, gas and electricity included (£25per week November-March, £12per short break). Bed linen and towels included. Travel cot. High chair. Video. DVD and small library. CD. Gas hob. Electric oven. Washing machine and tumble dryer (in external utility room). Small enclosed tiered garden with terrace and furniture. Barbecue. On road parking. Shared swimming pool (24 x 12ft; depth 4ft) available May-September. No smoking.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very cosy cottage with wonderful views. The beds were really comfortable and we had everything we needed. Swimming pool was a real bonus. The only problem we found was with the low ceilings, my husband is quite tall so had a few bumps on the head by the end of the week. Aug 2012.
  2. Pipewell Cottage was perfect for a couple, the second bedroom ok for friends/older children but unsuitable for smaller children (stairs too steep). Clean, excellent facilities provided made our stay comfortable and relaxed. April 2012.
  3. Cottage as like a little dolls house and can imagine it would be lovely in the summer when can use garden - the local pub, The New Inn was great for food. Feb 2012.

  6. Perfect spot for a break to explore the 1066 county. Complimentary bottle of wine most welcome to open and drink whilst flicking through comprehensive tourist folder including many local walking routes. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped with essentials. Maybe bring extra board games/dvds/books as selection small. Low arch and beam at bottom of stairs to watch out for if tall. Kids room at top of house great fun. Would recommend. April 2011.
