Located in the centre of the island made the property an ideal starting point for the sightseeing trips we made. Although the weather wasn't that great during our stay, the very peaceful and relaxed atmosphere of the cottage took the edge off the time spent waiting for the weather to improve.

Reviewed by SUSAN, 20th July 2019

Friendly welcome on arrival. On hand if needed but never intrusive. Great property with plenty of freedom to roam the surroundings. Good situation for exploring the rest of the island.

The James family work hard to satisfy their visitors. Redway is a beautiful place to stay in, with many accessible footpaths and cycle tracks. A short walk takes you to a regular bus service offering access to many parts of the Island. Fodder Cottage is a comfortable, cosy cottage.

Lovely location. My two year old loved feeding Trixie the goat and walking down to see the cows. The cottage has everything you would need. Hope to go back soon!

Reviewed by Nicola Linegar, July 2017
