“This house rocks!”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed for one week with a large group of friends and three dogs. The house was perfect for us - we had rented another one on the same estate the previous September and also enjoyed our stay then - but The Rock was the better option for us. The large kitchen and diner leading out onto the patio garden worked really well for all of us. Some of us would sit outside on the patio enjoying pre-dinner drinks with the dogs ambling about the decking, while others were inside cooking, but could join conversations through the open patio doors. Perfect. We also liked that the lounge was separate, i.e. no direct access to the patio garden, so no sandy dogs going through this part of the house. The three upstairs bedrooms are all of good sizes and with two bathrooms (one en-suite) and and separate downstairs WC, all making for no bathroom queues in the morning. Overall the house was well furnished and very comfortable. We had a very nice welcome pack and liked the cake and cookies so much, we ended up making contact with the cake company to bake a birthday cake for us which we are still enjoying writing this review from home. We would definitely book The Rock again.

“Fantastic”

We really enjoyed our stay at The Rock. The house had everything we needed and more. The cake, biscuits and apple juice were appreciated. As we stayed at New Year we were worried about keeping my elderly mother warm but the house was very well heated and there was constant hot water.

Great facilities for our son and dog as well. Close to the beach so we had some lovely walks and enjoyed watching the beautiful sunsets. Good pub serving food within walking distance.

“Lovely house fabulous beach”

Our stay at The Rock was everything we hoped for and more. The house was sparklingly clean and very well equipped. The cake and apple juice provided were very welcome as was the milk, most thoughtful. The children loved the toys and games provided, and slept well in the comfortable beds. We all had a great time on the beach and our dog loved the sand dunes. We would love to return one day.

“A wonderful weekend in the perfect place!”

A group of us stayed here to celebrate our 30th birthdays and it was just perfect for what we needed. We had a 14month old with us and it was very well equipped for her. The house was immaculate and very nicely presented. All of the bedrooms were a good size and the kitchen was well equipped.

The location was very good, walking distance to Camber Sands and a short drive into Rye. The town is beautiful and now holds special memories for us all.

We had a wonderful weekend and really hope to make a return visit one day!
