“Gorgeous cottage in the perfect the location.”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I recently stayed at Ockman Cottage with my grandmother and sister, and everyone loved the place. Welcoming and cosy, the cottage was beautiful and more spacious than I expected. With lovely decor throughout it was very clean and the beds were super comfortable. Conveniently located right in the heart of the town, everything was a short walk away. Jilly was very accommodating, flexible and helpful, ensuring our trip ran as smoothly as possible.

“Idyllic, indulgent and ideal for any time of year or occasion”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

From booking to arriving home , the owners of this beautiful cottage offer a wonderful service .
The cottage itself is stunning , decorated and furnished to a very high standard really making home from home , in fact better than home!
The owners have thought of everything to make this a stay you won't forget , a wonderful welcome basket of goodies to get you going ,to the little touches of supplying a torch and umbrellas should the weather be unkind , free wifi and a range of reading material to brush up on your local knowledge or choose a restaurant to eat in. The fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine means you can pack light and spend time enjoying Rye .

We spent 4 nights here and despite being in the centre the cottage is quiet and whilst every other part of the country was suffering storms we stay sheltered . Take in a beautiful walk to Camber. If your feeling energetic or just find yourself a comfy seat in the pub and watch the world go by.


Situated in the centre of Rye making everything accessible within a few minutes walk , time to peruse the wonderful array of shops, restaurants and pubs as well as taking in tea or even the cinema without needing the car.

Would definitely recommend this cottage for couples, friends and family and can't wait to revisit .

Ockman cottage is truly a beautiful house with every comfort. Situated in the centre of Rye but nevertheless very quiet. The two bedrooms are furnished with taste and very luxurious. The beds are comfortable and large. The kitchen had everything we needed. Lounge is very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and Jilly is a lovely host who extended our check out time. Highly recommended! A*****

“Rye adventure Holiday!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Ockmann Cottage which was perfectly situated within the Citadel to explore Rye itself and other National Trust properties and parks. The cottage itself was a jaw droppingly beautifully furnished and well furnished property to a very high standard. The modern kitchen contained all labour saving devices required. it was warm, comfortable and quiet. We highly recommend that if you want a unique comfortable, luxurious place to use as a unique base, Ockmann Cottage is just such a place. We also advise you after unloading and settling in you park the car in the lower car park £1.50 per day {The one with the large market arcade building) close to the railway station. We loved the cottage, Rye and the area...Great Break.

“Superb cottage in the centre of historic Rye”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

Ockman cottage was a real find perfect for a visit to this beautiful town.
The interior has been refurbished to the highest level of design and everything had been provided to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Step outside the door and you are within yards of the high street and yet in a quiet no through lane ideally situated for exploring Rye. Parking was available at a very reasonable cost nearby.
Will definitely return again.
