This is a lovely property in a rural location with some nice walks and footpaths behind it (although they are poorly marked). Sadly we found a walk into the village wasn't possible due to a lack of footpaths and whilst there is a bus stop at the end of the road, the buses are rather expensive. Our dog felt very safe as the boundary is nicely maintaRead moreined. Hide

A wonderful cottage that was exceptionally clean upon arrival. Well equipped and very quiet and cosy. Located on the middle of the Isle on a farm so all areas are within 30-40 minutes drive max. If you are blessed with good weather during your stay as we were it makes for the perfect getaway

Gorgeous cottage very near Godshill which has a great dog friendly pub serving good food at reasonable prices, a post office and a variety of eateries and gift shops. A farm shop is also a few minutes walk away which sells amazing local produce. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, had everything we could need for our stay and was lovely and warRead morem.

Had I known (I should have done) that the shower was NOT a walk-in shower, I doubt if we would have booked this cottage. That would have been a shame for we found the cottage and its location excellent, a very enjoyable experience.

A very comfortable well-equipped cottage in a convenient location for all attractions. We liked the secure front garden and back porch, ideal for sitting out and excellent for our dog. The quiet location well off the main road added to the peace and quiet. It was nice to have all the rooms on one level. The bedrooms are on the small side.
