A Quiet Corner in East Sussex

A sharp, contemporary take on the country cottage, this pet-friendly holiday letting in Rye, England, has the kind of stylish but unfussy design that makes country living modern and carefree. A peaceful, woodland setting with clean air, ideal for a stress free break, we love the serene and simple style that does away with any artifice, allowing the purity of the design and the idyllic setting to shine.

A Quiet Corner in East Sussex

A sharp, contemporary take on the country cottage, this pet-friendly holiday letting in Rye, England, has the kind of stylish but unfussy design that makes country living modern and carefree. A peaceful, woodland setting with clean air, ideal for a stress free break, we love the serene and simple style that does away with any artifice, allowing the purity of the design and the idyllic setting to shine.

Surrounded by ancient woodland forests in a quiet corner of East Sussex, this home was designed by London-based architect Tim Bushe as a peaceful country retreat. Clad all in wood with an inverted structural design, the house features an elevated open plan living design that encompasses the whole upper level with the bedrooms and baths set below ground level.

The main living area is a bright and expansive room with soaring pitched ceilings and skylights flooding the spaces with light. The fireside area is cozy in winter and bright and airy in summer and shares the space with the large modern kitchen and dining area that opens out to two outdoor terraces.

Downstairs are three bedrooms ideal for family that can sleep up to six guests.  With a simplified, back to basics style and modern design details include oak floors, whitewashed interiors and an interesting collection of vintage and contemporary pieces, the house exudes a peaceful minimalism.

Set within Woodland Trust and Forestry Commission woodlands, the area is rural and bucolic where you're likely to spy the local wild boar, Muntjac deer, and a multitude of bird life. A wonderful pet-friendly holiday letting in Rye, England.

Around

Surrounded by rolling countryside, medieval villages, and stunning coastline, East Sussex is a favorite of Londoners following the sun. The house is located just a few miles inland from the port town of Rye, an area well known for its English Channel seaside resorts. 

One of the best-preserved medieval towns in England, Rye's winding cobblestone streets, cafes, pubs and specialty shops give it atmospheric charm, along with a thriving fishing and boating harbor and neighboring nature reserve considered to be one of the most serene stretches of coastline in the southeast. Ideally placed for exploring nearby Romney Marsh and the beautiful Tillingham Valley, the expansive coastal beaches of Camber Sands and Winchelsea’s quiet pebble beach are within a fifteen-minute drive. Further west are the coastal towns of Hastings and the breathtaking Seven Sisters chalk cliffs near the seaside town of Eastbourne.
