Playden Lodge-Rye

Playden Forge is a lavish and unique hideaway, situated in beautiful grounds in a rural setting yet only a short walk away from the vibrant historic town of Rye. Sleeping 10-12 guests across 5 well-appointed bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with ample room in over 2 acres of ground for a marquee, Playden Forge is ideally placed for you to host group gatherings, family get togethers and celebrations.

Set back from the road with plenty of off-road parking for up to 8 cars, Playden Forge sits in beautiful grounds with far reaching views across the East Sussex countryside to Camber Sands and Folkestone in the distance.  Sit outside with friends to enjoy the far-reaching countryside views while the large lawned gardens offer ample space for children to run, explore and let off some steam!

The downstairs of this beautiful home offers a range of fantastic spaces for entertaining. The superbly equipped open plan kitchen diner has a large gas range burner and American fridge freezer with a grand dining table which comfortably sits 12 people. At the other end of the property, you’ll find a large living room with open fire and comfy seating which opens up into a conservatory with bar area and LED lighting – a great space to relax with a drink – or, better yet – get your own cocktail masterclass on the go!

An additional sitting room with a comfortable sofa bed with mattress topper can accommodate an additional 2 guests if required or simply be used as another space for guests to relax and spread out. The house benefits from top of the range technology throughout, including a number of large LED televisions that offer Sky Q TV, plus surround sound through Bose speakers

Two of the five bedrooms at Playden Forge can be found on the ground floor, serviced by a large shower room; ideal for those guests who may have mobility issues. Upstairs, you’ll find two further bedrooms; arranged as a double and twin, served by a generous family bathroom.  The master bedroom suite is an incredible space, with dressing room, walk in shower, king size bed and two balconies where you can sit and soak up the breath-taking countryside views.

An amazing home that offers a versatile and luxurious holiday home for friends and families.  Hens, stag and wedding parties welcome.  If you’re looking to organise a marquee in the grounds then please do let us know as we would be happy to organise a bespoke package for you.
