Set on a quiet no through lane in a small countryside village near Rye, offering lovely views across the valley and only 50 meters from a quiet river. Only 15 minutes from the picturesque Cinque Ports of Rye and Tenterden.
The 500 year old village pub and restaurant is 5 mins walk down the lane.
All three of your rooms are on their own floor separate to the rest of the house.
Walk to the ferry service that can take you to Bodiam castle and a 2 minute drive to the steam train service (KESR).
Currently 3 rooms exist solely for your use and are in a different section to the rest of the house, these are a double bedroom, a bathroom and a large living & dining room. They have just been renovated throughout, including new windows, curtains, carpets, bathroom suite and all free standing furniture.
Plenty of gated off-road parking within the grounds and the large open downstairs hall can easily accommodate bicycles as it contains ours already.
We have a largish utility room that will be converted to a kitchen (hopefully near the end of Sept.). Currently it has a 2 hob mini oven, a microwave and small fridge but hasn't been brought up to the standards of the other rooms and whilst it isn't really part of the offering, can be used to help you out if you need a preparation area.
The grounds cover about 1/3 of an acre consisting of a variety of trees, bushes and vegetable gardens which we are more than happy for you to use (maybe picnic or bbq).

The house is an upside down house and if you would like to come up and chat with us then you would be more than welcome.
Your rooms are directly below the two upstairs bedrooms so there should be no noise from the regular day to day workings of the house.
We would love you to bring your dog(s) (max 2), for short stays of up to a week. Anything longer would need to be discussed prior to the booking being approved. They should be friendly with other dogs, house trained, not overly noisy and do not get up on the furniture. There is a one off fee of £8 regardless of their length of stay.

The river is non-tidal and the people that operate the ferry and restaurant/cafe, about 5 minutes walk, also rent out a large variety of water craft to suit your requirements.
An easy going person (at least I like to think so), who used to travel a lot and work in the city. I live with my partner who is now 'retired', although the reality is that, as an animal lover, she spends a lot of her time looking after other peoples' animals and houses.
I changed jobs back in 2008 and am now an electrician working for myself and live a much more chilled out existence, where I work as necessary but spend a lot of time in the garden tending the vegetable gardens.
I'm not one for talking too much about myself but in line with Airbnb's tips, I'll let slip the following...
I love cooking, especially extravagant meals. The last one I did was a Spanish themed one where I had 6 or 7 different dishes for everyone.
On that same theme, I love my chilies. I grow my own plus I have a plant that I grew from seed that is now about 7 years old.
Then there's my garden and within that my vegetable patches (have you spotted a theme running through this yet?) I grow lots of different veg and most of that in bulk.
My partner, my parents and my dogs are also a big part of my life that I couldn't do without.
I've done a reasonable amount of travelling but I think it's Africa that would get my top vote. It has a greater sense of living when compared to the sameness than you may find in other parts of the world.
The first 3 music albums (on vinyl) that I ever bought were Judas Priest's 'British Steel', The Sex Pistol's 'Great Rock n Roll Sex Swindle' and Gustav Holst's 'Planet Suite'. I had an eclectic taste in music as a teen and it has only become more broad along the way.
I hope that none of that put you off staying with us and we wish you all the best!
