Hidden away in the cellar of a grade II listed Georgian property you will find Penny Rope, a unique little bed chamber with a prison cell theme. Holiday accommodation doesn’t get much more quirky than this! If you want to experience what it's like to stay in a prison cell, without having to break the law, then this is a good way to go about it!
Set in the heart of vibrant Margate, just a stone’s throw from the beach and a whole host of shops, galleries and cafes, Penny Rope is a prison-cell-slash-bed-chamber which offers fun yet comfortable lodgings just for two. It has been featured in several national newspapers as it's such a unique idea for an overnight stay. Inside it has a cosy authentic feel, with plenty of old-fashioned features to give it character. And yet it is perfectly equipped for modern living and the many delights of Margate and the Kentish coastline are practically on your doorstep. If you’re looking for a diminutive yet stylish bolthole with bags of personality then this could be just the ticket.
The beach is just a 3 minute stroll away and within walking distance you will also find the Turner Contemporary, the tidal pool at Walpole Bay, the Grade I listed Shell Grotto, Scott’s Furniture and Dreamland, as well as an excellent selection of cafes and restaurants. The golf courses of Sandwich are a short drive away.
Margate has its own railway station and there is a good bus service called The Loop which connects all the Thanet towns. Parking is free in most places.
