Rye Windmill 8 & 10

Rye, East Sussex, England

Stay in a delightful first floor room with ensuite facilities at this historic windmill B&B in 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 8+10 offer twin or double ensuites with views over the roof tops of Rye and St Mary's Church.

The rooms are situated on the first floor and 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 8 & 10 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, or 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.
