There is a separate dining room which is ideal for lingering over meals, whilst the kitchen looks out over the garden and is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a washing machine. A separate tumble dryer, meanwhile, can be found in a separate utility area. The shower room with its shower and WC can also be found on the ground floor whilst upstairs there are three bedrooms, the first of which is a charming room with a standard double bed and feature fireplace.

A cosy, comfortable, well equipped holiday home, providing an ideal base to explore the island from. Plenty of space and the hosts had thought of everything you might need for your stay. Good facilities for young children too.

Reviewed by Mark, 27th September 2019

The cottage and gardens were lovely,exceptionally peaceful with beautiful countryside. If there was one slight down side it would be the parking provided. Our dogs especially enjoyed the walk along the river Yar which is just a few minutes from the cottage. Overall a comfortable well equipped cottage providing a relaxing holiday. One thing I would Read moresuggest is not to miss your ferry and arrive in pouring rain and gale force winds in the dark it's quite hard to find. Hide

Situated in a lovely secluded location but pretty convenient for anywhere in the island. Godshill was close by and we enjoyed eating in Woods (service and food really good - plus excellent gluten free support). All in all very good.

Lovely cottage with loads of equipment, including games that we made the most of while there (the Isle of Wight Monopoly was the particular favourite). Lovely location and grounds. Well worth the few days we had there.

We had a lovely time at Elm Cottage and the biscuits were very welcoming. All the footpaths around the area were great for dog walks, We liked the trampoline and garden and watching the guinea fowl on the barn roof. Unfortunately, the weather wasnt great but we had a lovely holiday all the same. Thank you for a perfect holiday in the Isle of Wight.Read more Hide

This is a fantastic cottage in an ideal rural retreat, but still close enough to Godshill to make it a great base for exploring the island. The cottage was so peaceful and had a real holiday feel to it. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We had a very enjoyable stay. We loved the peace and quiet of the cottage no passing traffic in the lane , except for the occasional horse. The garden was perfect for children to play and the dog loved it too. A perfect inland location to explore the Island .
