Playden Oasts Hotel

Playden Oasts Hotel is a three star Inn full of charm and character just one mile from the historic Cinque Port of Rye with plenty of off road parking.

Our comfortable accommodation is very popular and we accept dogs and children.

If you have never slept in an oast house wait until you hear the special effect when you stand in the middle of the bedroom.

It’s lovely here, and something you will remember for ever.


The Playden Oast dates back to the 19th century. Up until the early 1970s it was still run as a working Oast House.
Hops would have been picked in the hop gardens by gangs of pickers and taken to the Oast to be dried using a flow of heated air through the kiln.

At the Playden Oasts you can relax with a quiet drink in our roundel oast bar warmed by the homely log fires. In fine weather enjoy the invigorating countryside air in our spacious beer garden.
