The
Experience

Rye is gorgeous, one of those lovely English towns that’s been around for centuries, but has never lost its looks. The same is true of Jeake’s House, which sits in the old town on a pretty cobbled street away from the crowds. In its 300-year history it’s been a wool store, a school and the home of American poet Conrad Potter Aiken. Inside, style abounds. The galleried dining room – once an old Baptist chapel – is now painted deep red and full of busts, books, clocks and mirrors, a fine setting for your bacon and eggs. There’s a raffish bar, where a fire burns in winter, then a pretty sitting room with a Broadwood square piano. Potter about and find timber frames, ancient beams and some strikingly furnished bedrooms; several have four-posters, one has a telly concealed in the wood-burner, all are deeply comfortable and excellent value for money. As for Rye, art galleries, antiques shops, old churches and river walks wait; don’t miss the Summer Exhibition in early September. All this would be blossom in the wind without Jenny, whose natural joie de vivre makes this a very special place.

Reviews

We had a wonderful stay at Jeake's House. It is everything the guide describes and more. Jenny and all the staff are extremely welcoming. The house is beautiful and quirky,elegant and spotlessly clean. The breakfast is one of the best. The high street with its great independent shops and eateries is just round the corner. And the private car park is a great help .We loved it and will certainly return so that we can explore further the surrounding countryside and the nearby beaches fully in the warmer weather.

Local points of interest from Jenny Hadfield

  • Jeakes House is a perfectly situated Bed and Breakfast in Rye and we are happy to advise you on the many attractions and villages to see during your stay. While you relax in our bar area please feel free to look through our extensive information on places to visit and interesting walks around Rye and the surrounding countryside
  • The ancient cinque port town of Rye sits on a hill commanding breathtaking views of Romney marsh and the sea. Incorporated in 1289 and once a seaport, the town played a vital role in the defence against invaders and as a trading centre. Its cobbled streets and medieval houses once echoed to the sounds of smugglers and revenue men, and fine trading vessels were to be found unloading at the warehouses on the quay.
  • Rye is an excellent base for a visit to East Sussex as it boasts art galleries, potteries, wonderful boutique shopping and many excellent restaurants and friendly pubs.
  • From Rye is also possible to visit many interesting castles including our very own Rye tower and Camber castle which makes for an enjoyable walk over the marsh. Hever castle, the home of Anne Boleyn is within easy travelling and gardens and maze provide a pleasant day out. Other castles to visit include Bodium, Pevensy, Lewes, Dover and Leeds.
  • Another popular attraction is the Sissinghurst gardens, which were designed by the writer Vita Sackville-West in 1967.
