Date Night ideas are one thing, creating something memorable and different is where we come in.
We have been making it easy for couples to enjoy date night and quality time in a relaxed manner for many years.
We will make you look like the star you are, champagne breakfasts are included as well as complementary night caps each evening. We will help secure you the most appropriate restaurant and help with the agenda for each day.
We only look after couples here, children only ever attend if you were doing a whole house takeover. This means you can relax knowing there will be no children here unless you specifically choose to invite them.
You will be staying a short walk from Rye high street, far enough away that you will leave you care here and walk into town as needed. Our grounds offer secure off road parking.
The image below was taken from our roof. Rye is only a short walk from the gate on the right as you enter the grounds.
At the bottom of this image of Rye you can see the Landgate Bistro fish restaurant, the Globe Inn Marsh is even nearer.
Below we list some good local restaurants for you – do mention Saltcote Place when booking as it may make a difference.

The Tuscan Kitchen in Lion street is really good authentic Tuscan food and relaxed fun, probably one of the best places to eat in Rye. Remember this is not London so your meal may take longer than 2 minutes to arrive as may your first drink but the atmosphere is as relaxed as eating at your friend’s house. You are there to stay, leave when you are ready.
The food is excellent and has become a popular haunt of the local Hoteliers and restaurant owners who go for the relaxed atmosphere and great food.
