“Highly Recommend”
Reviewed July 25, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We were a party of 5 and a Frenchie who stayed at the Old Rope House for 10 days in July. I would highly recommend this holiday let - we have a yearly 'girly' holiday in self catering accommodation and this was one of the best. Great little secure garden for the dog, airy comfy bedrooms and a well supplied kitchen with enough crockery to load the dishwasher and still have plenty to use. The separate dining room was an added bonus for our card games in the evening. I must make a special mention of the extremely comfy mattresses - elderly mum said it was the comfiest bed she had slept in! Great location for the beach and town but also a quiet street. This rental would suit a family with young children or a mix of ages like us. Many thanks Sian.

Well stocked house, has everything you need, comfy beds, plenty of space. We stayed during a very hot week and it was lovely to be so close to the sea and town, enjoyed many hours of walking and sunbathing.

“A lovely week end at The Old Rope House”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Nine of us stayed from Friday to Monday and were very happy with The Old Rope House. It was homely and comfortable with everything we needed to make it an enjoyable stay. I would definitely recommend the house and look forward to staying there again. Sian, the owner, was helpful and friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.

“A great family weekend.”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We are a family of eight plus three year old and dog and we all had a lovely time at the Old Rope House. We did big family meals and found everything we needed. The house is spacious warm and comfortable It really felt like home from home. We liked the easy access to the high street and as we did a brewery tour it was literally just down the road. We managed to park three cars at the back of the house. As the shower room is at the end of the kitchen we thought on a return visit we would bring bath robes. The owner couldn't t have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome.

The Old Rope House is deceptively spacious offering generous living accommodation, we had 8 adults & a baby in the family group and were able to enjoy the space, lots of original character & charm, a large Dining Room Table, good sized bedrooms, great heating system and plenty of hot water and a large lounge with comfortable sofas, games, books,TV, DVD etc. etc.

This Large/spacious house had every thing our three generations could want. The house was clean and tidy. Bedding and beds where clean and comfortable. A good selection of beds for all ages from baby/toddler/child. High chairs, stair gates, toys, books, games but not intrusive. This house is suitable for all ages or group of adults. It had the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen, plenty of cutlery (even child's) and crockery. It takes about 3 minutes to walk to the town and 5 mins to the beach. The owner is most helpful with our arrangement's and we will definitely recommend and hope to return.
