The apartments sit on a private quayside with a southerly outlook. Beyond the opposite bank of the river lies Romney Marsh with Rye Harbour in the distance.
The river is tidal so at breakfast you may catch a sailing boat gliding by and over lunch you could be watching a clutch of dunlins nosing for food in the mud of the river bank.
The pleasures of Rye's cobbled streets are barely 5 minutes walk.
Further afield you are within easy reach of Winchelsea, Battle, Bodiam, Canterbury, the Channel Tunnel and the Kent countryside.
The 'invitation only' golf links at nearby Camber are well known and the adjacent Sands are glorious at any time of the year.
Golf courses can also be found at nearby St Leonard's and Seddlescombe Golf Club.
Other activities include sailing, windsurfing, fishing and an abundance of walks. The nature reserve at Rye Harbour boasts several hides.
Cycling is an excellent way of exploring Romney Marsh using the tangle of narrow lanes, where you can discover Norman churches and 15th Century smugglers pubs.
Completed in 1992, these quality one bedroom mezzanine apartments have their own access and entrance via mahogany decked steps and sun balcony (seen here as the white buildings on the left).
The purpose built apartments, built on the riverbank, provide superb views of passing yachts and the marsh beyond.
The secluded location and the almost hypnotic effect of the tidal river as it ebbs and flows will swiftly put you into a relaxed frame of mind.
Adjacent short term moorings can be organised (subject to availability).
Allocated parking is available at the rear.
Another year in this beautiful place, peaceful & hidden & yet so near to town to sample all the eateries or just browse.

Blazing June a bonus & distraction. I was here to write but couldnt resist the sunshine. Lamb House closed for filming sadly but look forward to the BBC screening new version of Mapp & Lucia. Hawkhurst King is a gem, expensive but so much better than multiplex. Like nearby Cranbrook & Ypres pub worth a visit good music (Sunday) & good beer. Thanks for bottle in fridge by the way.

base for a birthday break. Have eaten at the Ambrette (outstanding and delightfully
different) and the Mermaid Inn restaurant (silver service not stupidly expensive). Other
local recommendations include
drive down to the power station and past Derek Jarmans Prospect Cottage
redefines bleakness and is a huge contrast to
Final evening spent at the pub quiz at the William Caxton in Tenterden! (every Wed from 8pm)
Eric & Val,
Another fabulous weekend, in spite of all the rain. We so love this apartment, we are so relaxed here, and it gives us such a welcome break from fostering and a house full of children. Many thanks.
WE WILL BE BACK

Really enjoyed our time at the Boathouse. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, with a lovely touch, a bottle in the fridge. Heating was nice and cosy and the electric fire really finished it off. On our first night we went to the Standard Inn and had a really lovely meal good value. Went to Rye Heritage Centre. It might seem a lot, £3.50 each to see a model of the town along with a commentary of the history of the buildings, we loved every minute of it. We would recommend the Boathouse to our friends and a visit to Rye.

Had a fantastic week here found the Boathouse to be very comfortable and handy location for everything in Rye. We will be coming back Rye is lovely! Had excellent meals everywhere Baileys great steak, Careys seafood platter was impressive, Simply Italian try the special seafood pasta, its delicious! The Ship for real ale and excellent standard of food. Great coffee & cream tea at Tambika near the Heritage Centre too. Jempsons café is reasonable and good food too for a quick bite. We dont want to leave!!

Really enjoyed our stay here.
Would thoroughly recommend Haydens for proper coffee and delicious fresh lunches. Webbes Fish Café an absolute must for fish lovers must book though, and The Lemongrass Thai restaurant was also superb. SI (Simply Italian) very slick service and good food, we found the Ship a little wannabe trendy beach café-ish, overpriced and not that great. Fish platter at Ypres Castle Inn was fabulous as was the fresh fish crab, prawns, crayfish tails etc from the fresh fish retailer on the quay, behind the playground.
Rye was delightful, unspoilt with lots to see and do, some lovely walks to Camber Castle, Rye Harbour and Winchelsea where Spike Milligan is buried.
Apartment is v. comfortable and has everything you need, We will definitely be back!
PS. The bubbly a very nice touch after a long drive here! (J) As was the milk and tea tray! J Thank you.
Rob & Katie Bath 16-23 July 2011
In Rye for 12 days. Snow and ice delayed arrival & a challenge to get into apt due to Jackie being in plaster on 1 leg ice didnt help!!
Apt fab, clean warm & inviting.
Thanks v. much for the wine. Our favourite pub Queens Head Icklesham. Bay Tree Gifts for unusual gifts. No supermarket in Rye open on Sundays but Tesco at Ashford/Kingsnorth 25 mins. Wildlife walks out to the Harbour mouth recommended for birdwatchers.
So much to see & do in and around Rye even tho we lived here for 11 years still find nooks & crannies.
Home from home for Christmas!!

Our tenth visit to the Boathouse and still the most relaxing holiday.
Se easy to get to but so far from the cares of everyday life. We have the sea, the countryside, a superb beach at Camber and the historic town of Rye and a welcome bottle of bubbly.
Why bother with the hassle of airports, passports, strikes, transport problems and costs of long-distance travel?

Ducks nesting on opposite bank while I enjoyed breakfast on the balcony.
A yacht sailed (apparently) along the field on the left! Comfort, peace and warmth within us! Shall leave here refreshed and ready to face the world once more. Do visit Jempsons of Peasmarsh the Harrods food store of the South East!,
