We had a lovely stay here, plenty of walks to do with a dog. Theres a nice woodland walk just down the road. The house was very clean, even under the armchairs and sofa which we had to lift to hunt for a missing toy. Shanklin is a lovely seaside town with plenty to do and a sandy beach.

Went home 2 days early. Next door had workers in to instal bathroom all week. On the other side were 2 very yappy dogs which woke us at 7:15am each day and destroyed our peace every time we tried to sit outside. The 'patio' was very overgrown with weeds - not a pleasant space at all. Thick dust on the window sills. The roof light window in the bathRead moreroom is disgusting and the shower attachment and curtain made for a pitiful shower experience. I could go on. We won't be back. Extremely overpriced. Hide

Lovely traditional cottage with comfortable and quality bedroom furniture. In need of some cosmetic attention to bathroom and outdoor space. Peaceful idyllic location. Well equipped - even a peg bag for the washing! We also enjoyed using the bbq. We felt it was overpriced but had to go in the school holidays. We had a lovely time.

Great location ,outdoor space small with no grass & overgrown with weeds & needed cleaning, nice table & chairs. Good kitchen equipment. Lounge dark & dingy, bathroom shower is a bit tricky as its up the slope end of the bath. Also we couldnt get any internet . We would not stay at this cottage again

A lovely, cosy cottage. Perfect for our family (2 adults, 1 baby and 1 dog). The only criticism is that some small touches were missing such as providing handsoap and enough toilet roll for the stay. Having not been allowed in the property until 5pm, we did our shopping en-route only to discover things like handsoap were missing so back to the shopRead mores we went. Hide
