Oaklands, situated on the edge of the High Weald and in 1066 Country,  is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful part of England. The nearby wonderful gardens, castles and historic homes, which are open to the public, the 1066 Way for walkers, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, and much much more are easily accessible to our guests.

Set a little over a mile from the centre of historic Rye town, Oaklands is situated in an elevated position and located within an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. We have easy access to footpaths and bridleways which lead to Rye, Rye Harbour, Winchelsea, Hastings and beyond. This Rye location is blessed with stunning uninterrupted views of the sea and countryside.

Oaklands is set within the seclusion of its own large garden, which is surrounded by fields and open country. There are several spots around the garden where guests can relax in the peace and quiet of the countryside or, for the more energetic a game of croquet might appeal.


Experience the tranquillity of Oaklands and unwind with glorious views across to the Tillingham Valley, Rye town and also Rye Bay.

If you are celebrating a special occasion while you are staying at Oaklands and would like us to provide that extra thoughtful touch, eg Chocolates, Flowers etc, please let us know and we will arrange this for you.

Our priority is you...   relax, unwind and refresh.
