The cottage is exactly as described, hosts are friendly and helpful and very generous. The garden is large and private and everything has been thought of indoors. There is even a heated airer to dry towels! The village is in our opinion one of the best on the island with fantastic village shop, wonderful little museum, easy access to the coast pathRead more and other paths for walkers; pub has mixed reviews but we found it to be good standard pub fare at a reasonable price, but lacking in atmosphere.

Perfect for a single visitor or couple to West Wight. Excellent welcome gifts to help settle in quickly. Warm and cosy when the weather is less than perfect. So close to shops and walks and beach that a car is only required to visit further afield across the island.

A wonderful little cottage in a very quiet and peaceful village. It is well equipped and comfortable, and its peaceful garden provides another relaxing place to sit and wind down. Highly recommended.

A lovely cottage and lovely hosts. Well thought out welcome pack. Lovely private garden with table, chairs and loungers. Due to height in the bathroom there's no full shower, so be prepared to take a bath. Or as we did, take a kneeling / sitting shower using the combination taps / mixer shower head if you're able. It would be possible to stay withiRead moren the village all week given how nice the cottage, pub and village shop are. Definitely somewhere we would go back to and fully recommended. Hide

A very pretty, comfy cottage set in a peaceful location. We enjoyed it very much and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Reviewed by E, 6th May 2019

Your description was perfectly adequate; I think its the personal, caring touches by the owners that made this cottage 'out of the ordinary'. Brighstone though; an odd little(well, not so little) village on an island dependant on tourism; no cafe, + a very poor pub; I'm sure theres a market for these 'essentials' to holidaymakers+locals alike.

Outstanding cottage, there was an unbelievable welcome pack. There was nothing that I was looking for that I couldn't find-hope that makes sense! We have booked to come again next year for the fourth year running which says it all!

First class comfortable, very clean and well equipped accommodation situated in a lovely village at the most scenic end of the island with easy access to other places.
