“Excellent for a family get together.”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was one of the very few places that we found that could accommodate the number of people we wanted to get together. We had people ranging in age from 1 to 88, with people coming and going during the week. It was excellent for our group. The facilities were spot on, clean comfortable bedrooms, plenty of storage in the kitchen and lots of space for feeding large numbers of people. The large lounge and games were brilliant for the younger ones in the party, while the smaller lounge upstairs provided a quieter area for others. Best of all was the price. When shared out it was extremely good value. The only down side: the distance we had to travel to it! I would thoroughly recommend this place.

“Fantastic house for large groups in a good location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Property is ideal for big groups as a party house or for family groups. We are a group of 15 adults and 11 children (ranging from 3 weeks to 7 years!) The property was fantastic as it has lots of room for children to roam and adults to sit and chat. The kitchen was a lovely space and the upstairs lounge was very cosy. The downstairs living space was huge and a bit industrial. The kids loved the games area and the projector for films.
All the bathrooms appeared new and very clean. The bedrooms on the 1st and 2nd floor were all lovely, the downstairs rooms were slightly less welcoming (2 by the front door and one off the games area) but were very functional.
Mark was really easy to communicate with and phoned to make sure that we were happy when we arrived. Any issues that we had he quickly resolved. The kitchen was missing a few bits (corkscrew being the main issue!) Mark said to get what was needed and settled up with us at the end of the holiday. The tumble dryer didn't work, which with a newborn was a bit of an issue, but once Mark was aware he arranged with the local laundrette to dry it for us at no cost to us. We couldn't have asked for more. It was a great holiday (my son says you will love it!)

“Another fantastic break”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This is our second visit to the Ship Inn, this time for pre-Christmas celebrations. We are a group of friends with children and I can't rate this place highly enough. The place is big enough for everyone to have their own space but somehow feels intimate. Will definitely return! Loved it x

“Excellent place, brilliant time had by all”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Booked this property for a birthday celebration. Great location easy for family travelling over from Ireland. Had great communication in advance with the owner who informed me of key collection. Arrived earlier than had thought and the cleaners were still there. They were very welcoming and didn't mind us being there. The lovely lady even gave me a guided tour.

The house is amazing. Is has great character and so spacious. We had a party planned for the weekend for over 25 people. The house has been refurbished but not too modernised, it has a homely feel to it. We partied on the Friday and dined on the Saturday. The house has everything you need to cater for these occasions.

Highlights:
2 TV rooms - great when 25 people are feeling a bit delicate and need room to chill out.
large, spacious kitchen, 2 dish washers, 2 fridge freezers plenty seating
The dorm room - loved by the younger members of the party (aged between 16 - 21)
Huge master bedroom bagsied by myself and husband during the guided tour.
Pool Table and area - we set up a band here and still had room to dance

All rooms were spotlessly clean and beds made up.
We only had one query over the weekend, which was with the gate. I called the owner, Mark, and he reassured me a repair had been booked and that he was sorry this had not been seen to before we arrived.

After a fabulous weekend of partying by Monday we were down to 4 people and the house was the perfect place to spend a week relaxing. The house is within walking distance of all amenities and with a good number of takeaways we had a week of no cooking :)

My birthday celebrations were made even better by being here. The Ship Inn is not a hotel its a home from home for large groups to get together and have a great time.

We will definitely book here again for our family gatherings and have already recommended the place to others

“A great venue suitable for all”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just come back from a weekend stay at the Ship Inn, some of my family are taking advantage of the place for longer. The Ship Inn is a converted pub that is now a brilliant place for large groups or extended family to spend time together. the location is wonderful with local walks along the promenade. Also greatly accessible for many local attractions.

The property itself has been renovated to a high standard but has kept plenty of the old charm of the building. 2 living room, a huge kitchen and a massive projector wall for the TV meant even in the house we were left with plenty to do. Even better was a pool table which all the lads enjoyed. I cannot rate this place highly enough.
