Cottage Review:  

Before this holiday l was a little worried about the reviews. I contacted Sykes who advised that the cleaning company had been changed, and indeed we arrived to a very clean house. The house was good for our needs, multiple bathrooms and comfortable seating in the open dining/kitchen/lounge for 6 adults. The courtyard is tiny and is really only suitable for a coffee, but the bifold doors at one end of the open lounge area open fully for a lovely sense of space. The back of the house is relatively quiet ( if you don't count the seagulls! ) But as described the front opens on to a busy through road, with a lot of traffic. However, it's great location for exploring all the great things Rye has to offer, and the parking space is a 2 minute walk. The house is convenient and comfortable, it's not cosy, but has all the things you need when the majority of the time is spent exploring the area.

Overall we have had a lovely holiday at the Old Forge, however our first experience of the cottage was marred by being unable to find the key box to let ourselves in. If the staff at the next door restaurant hadn?t helped us, we wouldn?t have found it. The key box is tucked down very low behind a blue box housing the restaurant electricity meter. Not easy to access for anyone, and if anyone was seated at the outside tables it would have been impossible to access securely. Simply remedied by re locating the key safe to above the meter box.

The property was clean and well presented, bright and airy. We were more than happy with it. Easily accommodated 3 couples comfortably. The location is great for everything, the 'Wish Street' car park is very close and only £5 for 24 hrs which we thought was reasonable. The parking space allocated to the house is tiny and you would never get anything bigger than a fiesta in it! The house is literally on the busy road and the large bedroom at the front with the barn style window pictured on the advertising is the noisiest room of the three doubles! The windows literally rattle when a lorry goes by, if you are a light sleeper take ear plugs. The other bedrooms are fine noise wise. There were not enough glasses, only 2 red wine glasses and six minuscule white wine glasses that literally hold one sip (havent used ones like that for years!). Some of the mugs and bowls were chipped but didn't bother us that much - just a minor inconvenience. The smoke alarms are super sensitive and every time you open the oven or use the hob it sets them off, mainly because the extractor fan box needs cleaning and the filter replacing as its just not effective. Outside windows at the front were filthy but guess that's due to the constant passing traffic. Wifi is fast, beds and pillows comfy. For friends catching up over new year it was ideal for a couple of nights. Lots restaurants to choose from and cafes for breakfast if you don't fancy cooking your own. Would def recommend the property.

Cottage Review:  

Booked this cottage through SYKES - it did say that cottage is directly on the foot path, what it failed to say was directly on the MAIN ROAD.

Now this would not of been a problem if the front bedroom was doubled glazed and not just a wooden barn door and plastic around the windows - it was no noisy with traffic cars, lorries and buses that one of the party had to check into a hotel. We contacted SYKES which was a total waste of time. I was not looking for compensation I was just asking them to add this to the website to which they said they would have to speak to the owner.

the curtains also did not fit the window so not only do you get the noise you also get the 2 street lamps shinning in the room.

If you are going to use all of the 3 bedrooms please be aware that the person in the front bedroom will not sleep.

Other than the no sleeping the cottage is very nice indeed and very central

The space at the Old Forge was okay and conveneint for the town, but no pictures on walls, no cushions on setees so it felt a little cold and unwelcoming. WiFi was promised in the advertising but the hub was not working. A BT engineer proved the hub was the problem so should be replaced by BT or by the owner. This information was passed to the owner but he/she was obviously very busy and the hub was not replaced during our stay. Big problem? No, not really, but it was very inconvenient. Rubbish is to be disposed of in a lockable blue wheelie bin outside, bu

I know Rye well and have stayed in many holiday cottages there, The Old Forge stands up well against the competition.

At first the location on a busy road might seem off putting but in reality once inside the property it is of little concern. The interior has been very well designed, the bright modern style enhances the original fabric of the building and the ground floor space is roomy and bright.

The two main bedrooms are most attractive, the third is a small double, both bathrooms are contemporary and functional and the décor throughout is pleasing. The k

We booked this house at short notice for a party of six wanting to spend a few days near the south coast. The house is lovely with open plan spacious living, dining and kitchen area. The table is a little on the cosy side for six and one of the double bedrooms would really be more suitable as a single as space around the bed is minimal.The house is close to everything you need, including the local supermarket, restaurants and shops. Very clean with everything we needed. The outside space is small and enclosed by a high wall but welcome nonetheless, parti
