If you’re looking for a romantic bolthole that is more than a little bit out of the ordinary, the Cabin by the River could be just the thing. You don’t need to take our word for it, either – this incredible property was judged to be one of the five best romantic rentals in the Sunday Times’ Best Cottages for the Summer in 2017. Situated on the river in fashionable Rye, the Cabin has a cool rustic interior – reclaimed materials, beautiful Moroccan tiles, dark colours – beautifully and carefully furnished with an eclectic mix of contemporary and mid-century furnishings, bold prints and cosy cushions and blankets.
Just because this is a cabin, don’t think you’ll be roughing it! The Emperor sized bed has a luxury mattress with goose-down pillows and Egyptian cotton linen, the bijou kitchen features a Nespresso machine for your morning coffee (as well as all the essentials), and the bathroom shares the same rustic luxe vibe.
