The space
Penny Rope is unique because it is a quirky prison cell themed accommodation that sleeps two people. Feel the experience of being in a cell overnight, (without being locked in from the outside) knowing you can get up and leave in the morning. We offer an underground cell themed unique space close to the heart of vibrant Margate. With an old fashioned authentic feel, Penny Rope bestows all the modern features necessary for today’s living. Cosy bunk beds, 100% Egyptian white cotton linen, own shower/lavatory on site, tea and coffee making facilities, private walled garden, seasonal organic vegetables, fruit and herbs, BBQ facilities, WiFi, dogs welcome. Optional prison themed mug shots.
Penny Rope is just a three minute walk away from the beach, 5 minutes from the Turner Contemporary and 10 minutes from Dreamland. There are many good cafes and eating places close by, the tidal pool at Walpole Bay is a short walk away. The newly opened Margate caves and the Grade l listed Shell Grotto are just around the corner, along with Scott's Furniture - a 3 floor delight of antique furniture and collectables. Penny Rope is annexed to a larger Grade ll listed Georgian property called The Booth, where The Warden will take care of all your prison needs throughout your spell inside. The price per night is based on two people sharing.
