The property is located approximately 0.5 mile from the Ancient Town and Cinque of Rye in the village of Playden. Playden is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Plaidenham and is a largely rural parish. In earlier times the sea, which is now about four miles distant, came to the base of the hill and Playden's main occupation was fishing; the fish were salted in a long disappeared hamlet known as Saltcote, at the bottom of what is now New England Lane, formerly known as Saltcote Street. The picturesque church of St Michael is an excellent example of a small Norman/Early English church. Rye is renowned for its historical associations and medieval fortifications. As well as its charm and history, the town has a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and an active local community, with the arts being strongly represented; Rye Arts Festival is held
annually and the Kino cinema, arts centre and café is located off Lion Street. From the town there are local train services to Eastbourne and to Ashford from where there are high speed connections to London, St Pancras (38 minutes).
