Rye Windmill 2 & 4

Rye, East Sussex, England

Two ground floor ensuite double bedrooms with river and marsh views in the historic town of Rye.

As a small family run business, Rye Windmill owners are in a good position to deal with COVID-19 and the changes required to make your stay safe and relaxing. By introducing some of the cleaning technologies used by larger hotel chains and implementing new measures advised within the industry the B&B has evolved to create a coastal retreat you can feel safe and relaxed in.


Rye's white smock windmill is a grade II listed building and one of the town's most famous landmarks. Rooms 2 + 4 each sleep 2 people with wonderful views.

Room 2 was once the old bakery whilst Room 4 has a lovely beach theme to it. Both have double beds with ensuite facilities and views over the River Tillingham and Gibbets Marsh. 

The rooms come complete with a TV, hot drinks tray and biscuits, plus free wifi. Parking is guaranteed on site too! If you are celebrating a special occasion then champagne, flowers and chocolates can be supplied! 

The windmill itself stands on the banks of the river Tillingham and is ideally located within the town with the Strand Quay just a two minute walk away. It offers guests hospitality with a licensed bar and lounge and B&B rooms. Your breakfast will be cooked to order using quality and local ingredients.

Rye itself offers plenty to see and do itself but a little further afield you can find stately homes and gardens, castles, abbeys, nature reserves and sandy beaches. There is definitely something for everyone!

Prices for Rooms 2+4 start at £100 per night for a 2 night stay midweek - from Sunday to Thursday. A 2 night weekend break costs £110 per night for Friday and Saturday, and every night in July & August.

Single night stays midweek are available Sunday to Thursday at a nightly rate of £110.

Children can only be accommodated from 12 and over due to the nature of the facilities.
