We had a lovely, comfortable stay at Romany Cottage and the garden with its pond and trickle of running water set the ambience for this delightful location.

Loved the cottage and garden! The cottage was clean, comfortable, very well equipped and in a great location for easy access from the Yarmouth ferry and for car access to the rest of the IOW. Really peaceful setting, despite being in a residential area, and the garden was a lovely bonus when the weather was kind. The narrow driveway was a bit dauntRead moreing, but there was plenty of parking in the road outside so we used the drive only for unloading / loading. Hide

Excellent accommodation in a secluded spot which is ideally located for exploration of the quietest part of the IOW. Being a group of 3 couples we found plenty of space for both socialising and areas to be on your own.

A very comfortable cottage with plenty of space for up to 6 people as well as all the equipment you could need in the kitchen cupboards. Super entrance porch and hallway for storage of beach and walking gear. Beaches at Totland Bay and Colwell Bay both within walking distance, as well as walks to Freshwater Bay, The Needles and Yarmouth.

We had a great holiday at Romany, the setting was ideal with just a short walk from two beautiful beaches and the local shops. West IOW was beautiful with so many things to do and see and none of it too far away! The driveway to the house was very tricky even for experienced drivers but apart from that everything was great!
