fantastic house by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family hoilday staying in the Ark for a week (26/8 to 2/9). The property was everything we could have hoped for and more. We were a group of 9 people and 1 small dog - the house was so big that we never felt cramped or on top of each other. As a family we loved the ground floor - with the games room / dining area. The kitchen was really big and we were all able to muck in when it came to cooking and tidying up afterwards. We had my elderly mum with us and the downstairs wet room was a god send for her. We loved the middle living area for after dinner tv/dvd watching. My husband and I had the top floor and really enjoyed the privacy and fantastic views from the terrace. We were met by the owners brother on arrival and he was very welcoming (I have never had such a great welcome pack either - there was so much including wine and a lovely big cake) showing us around and providing us with all the information we needed. He was on hand if we needed anything - he brought over 2 bbqs for us to use and when I texted him becuse we couldn't find a dust pan and brush or the fuse box he came straightover to help. They just couldn't do enough for us. We loved the location - across from the road from the beach - really convenient and we spent every day on the beach as the weather was glorious. Some people might not like being so far from shops/pubs etc but we didn't mind. We did walk into Camber Sands but it was a good 30/40 minutes walk and there wasn't much there. I would recomend Rye if you want to eat / drink out or shop. There was space for 4 cars to park at the property. The house was decorated to a very high standard and we had everything we needed with the 3 kitchens ! plenty of fridges to hold all our supplies.

I would definately recommend this propoerty and would love to return next year. My only slightly negative comments would be - WIFI was a little slow and the dishwasher was quite small for such a large house (but these were minor considerations and certainly didn't spoil things for us). All in all we had the best family holiday ever

Perfect house for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

The Ark was beautiful and absolutely perfect for my big group of friends and I to live in for a long weekend. The house was spacious enough that everyone could be playing games and hanging out downstairs and you couldn't hear a thing from the top floor. There was never a moment when the house felt crowded! The pool table kept us very occupied and there was plenty to do nearby.

It's only a 2 minute walk to get over the wall and too the sandy beach, which was beautiful in the evening when the sun is setting.

Camber sands is an amazing sandy beach and Rye is a short drive away, and it is really fun to explore the cobbled streets. If you can find it, The Cobbles Tea Room (Rye) is perfect for loose leaf teas, big hot chocolates, home made cakes and those all important cream teas!

Our house and surrounding houses had a powercut on the Sunday evening, which was not a problem as Angela rang me to assure that back up lighting should be on and the wifi should last until the power comes back on! The problem was quickly solved by take away pizza's from Antonio's in Camber Sands (just a short drive away) and a game of charades; and the power coming back on shortly after.

We only had one issue with a shower door on the top floor but Angela was only a phone call away to sort it out!

Angela made us all feel welcome, and the welcome basket was such a lovely surprise. We couldn't of asked for a better house to stay in, and we feel so lucky to have found it and been able to stay in it!

Thank you for everything!

The property was clean, spacious and great for our family get together. The beds were made and were very clean, the quilts were also thick in quality. You can walk into Camber takes about 15/20 mins. The owner was always happy to answer and questions we had and was very helpful. We would go back for another family get together.

An amazing weekend at The Ark.

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say first how lovely the owner Angela is and how much she went above and beyond for our stay. Nothing was too much trouble!

15 adults stayed at The Ark for the weekend to celebrate joint birthdays, every guest was blown away by the place! So many bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Every part was very clean with additional towels, shower gels and soaps, even a lovely welcome package with teas and wine... that's certainly the way to my heart!

The best thing about The Ark is how much space there is, especially with so many people all under one roof everyone had there own space to chill out or all get together in the two spacious living rooms and giant dinning room. On our last night we all gathered round to get together for the Super Bowl, then due to the extreme storms happening there was a power cut! Nightmare scenario, but Angela who was away at the time herself was so helpful and kept me updated with information from the power company. Thankfully the router had a battery cell so we were able to stream the Super Bowl onto one of our laptops. It just added to the experience of a wonderful weekend and hopefully will be able to return next year again.

I would recommend this place to anyone and would like to thank Angela again for all her help. 15 extremely happy 5 star reviews from me and my friends!

Great house right by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Angela was so helpful in the run up to and during our stay! Rye is very close by and a wonderful town (very easy to reach by bus). The house itself was just what we wanted with plenty of space for everyone and a great games room with pool table!
