Windmill Suite at Rye Windmill

Rye, East Sussex, England

The unique suite, with private access to the balcony, is within the historic windmill and has stunning 360º views over Rye and its riverside location.

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. The Windmill Suite offers a romantic base for 2 with private balcony offering views over the town.

The Windmill Suite is situated over 2 floors in the Mill with the bedroom and lounge area - complete with super king sleigh bed on the 2nd floor of the mill and a spacious bathroom with walk in shower and freestanding bath on the floor above. 

The suite comes complete with a TV, hot drinks tray and biscuits, plus his and hers sinks and 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!

Single night stays midweek are available Sunday to Thursday at a nightly rate of £220.
