The George in Rye


  • Baby Ready
  • School Age Action

Situated in the middle of the High Street in the medieval East Sussex town of Rye, this 21st-century inn has everything you need for a getaway with or without children. It’s surrounded by art galleries, antiques shops and tearooms, and is a lovely base from which to explore historic Sussex. Dating back to 1575, The George in Rye is a quintessential English coaching house that has been beautifully renovated to give it a quirky lived-in, luxury feel. The bedrooms in the manor have been designed to make guests feel as if they have stepped into the pages of a stylish interiors magazine. The restaurant, the George Inn Grill, and the bar, the George Tap, offer delicious all day-dining menus; on sunny days families can relax outside in the cute courtyard garden. From here families can visit the site of the infamous 1066 Battle of Hastings, the South Downs National Park, and the golden Camber Sands beach — just be sure to make it back for afternoon tea.
