…And for your peace of mind.

Covid 19 Information

While the Corona Virus uncertainty is ongoing, we would like to reassure you that your health and safety, and that of our team, remains our highest priority.  Here at Jeake’s we are strictly adhering to the advice of the UK Government and Health Authorities.  Our standards of cleanliness are exceptionally high at all times, and UK regulations for hospitality businesses are always exacting, so it is not onerous to discreetly accommodate extra measures.  We are not experiencing any supply difficulties.  We tend to source our food as locally as possible, we work with local companies across the board and they have full confidence in their suppliers and resources.

We look forward to welcoming you to Jeake’s House.

A stay in Jeake’s House is a stay with the quintessence of Rye.

Built in the 17th century, it sits on cobbled Mermaid Street, with views over the red rooftops of Rye to the green hills beyond.

Here, traditional hospitality meets every modern comfort.  Ancient beams, four-poster beds, showers as well as baths? Of course.  But there’s also free Wi-Fi and docking stations.

Guests are guaranteed a space in our own private car park nearby. A permit is available for a small charge.

You’ll be welcomed by your hosts, Jenny Hadfield and Richard Martin (and perhaps by the resident cats!).

Jenny and Richard will happily direct you to the local sights, inns and restaurants.

HISTORY

‘AT MID-DAY ON JUNE 13, 1689, THE FOUNDATION OF THIS WAREHOUSE WAS LAYED, THE HEAVENLY BODIES BEING IN THESE POSITIONS.

Samuel Jeake, a successful merchant, was a strict Puritan who sought God’s guidance on every detail of his life; but incongruously, he also believed in astrology.

Now a single property, the buildings that make up Jeake’s House have been a wool store, a school, a chapel, and the Baptist ministers’ residence.

Its many famous visitors have included the Quaker prison reformer Elizabeth Fry, and the writers E.F. Benson, T.S. Eliot, Malcolm Lowry, John Burke, and Radclyffe Hall.

Nearby is the property where artist Paul Nash lived, and Lamb House, the home variously of Henry James and E.F. Benson, who penned the ‘Mapp and Lucia’ novels, set in a fictionalised version of Rye called Tilling.
