Nestled in the heart of historic Rye, the Eclectic Residence stands as a testament to the town's rich past, occupying a timber-framed, black-clad building that dates back to the 1700s. Originally a Public House, this charismatic abode has undergone a meticulous transformation into a vibrant haven that seamlessly merges its storied heritage with modern comforts.

The house boasts a distinctive boho-luxe style, a riot of colour and texture that invigorates every nook and cranny. Stepping through the threshold, guests are enveloped in a captivating blend of original period features – think twisted stairs, original floorboards, and rustic beams – and contemporary designer touches. The four expansive king-sized bedrooms, adorned with eclectic furnishings from Anthropologie and House of Hackney, provide a luxurious retreat. Three opulent bathrooms, two of which are ensuite, showcase a thoughtful fusion of vintage charm and modern amenities.

Descending to the lower ground floor, the kitchen beckons with its light-filled, well-equipped space, boasting a range cooker, large fridge freezer, and an Italian stove top espresso maker. A stroll into the dining room, once the pub scullery, reveals a captivating atmosphere with stylish seating for eight, a walk-in pantry, and quirky designer tableware.

The sitting room on the ground floor exudes comfort with colourful velvet sofas, while the absence of a TV encourages a retreat into the abundant supply of games, from giant checkers to poker. The bedrooms on the upper floors offer unique retreats, with the top-floor king size bedroom enjoying an ensuite shower room, complemented by a family bathroom featuring a slipper bath.

Beyond the confines of the house lies a beautiful south-facing Mediterranean-style garden, a private oasis with festoon lights, generous seating, and lush greenery. The space is a sun trap, perfect for al fresco gatherings or quiet moments under the stars.

Despite its age, the Eclectic Residence caters to modern sensibilities, offering an unforgettable boutique-hotel chic experience. Situated amidst the eclectic delights of Rye, this destination stay promises an immersive and vibrant escape.

What you should know…

  • There is no private parking at the Old Stout House, but there is parking available just three minutes’ walk away.
  • This is an old house with narrow, steep, twisting stairs in places so please take this into consideration as it may not be suitable for children.
  • Note that, in its central location, the house retains echoes of its medieval past, with narrow pavements and occasional traffic noise reminding visitors of the town's enduring charm.
  • Guests should embrace the wonky floors and wayward walls, as they contribute to the warm and welcoming ambiance that defines this extraordinary residence.
