Lovely two week stay. Comfortable home, quiet and within easy reach of the loveliest parts of the island. WE enjoyed some cycling, walking and beaches. Tried out some new restaurants. Most importantly, we are all going home a lot more relaxed than when we got here. Time to be still an appreciate what you have.

Very comfortable and well equipped cottage for our first stay in the area. Had everything we needed including sun loungers in the shed which actually got used, twice! Tennyson Downs and Mottishore Gardens were highlights in the sunshine. And the cottage itself is a very peaceful place to be. Thank you

A beautiful cottage with a delightful garden. Everything there you need for a restful holiday. Easy access from the ferry and set in the best side of the Island. A very enjoyable week which left us wanting to return to see more ! Would definitely stay there again.

Very well equipped accommodation. Everything we needed and more. The pond is a hive of activity at this time of year. Highly recommend trips to the donkey sanctuary and the model village. We have been extrremely lucky with the weather but there are activities for when it is not so nice. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage or island to anyone

A lovely stay in a beautiful cottage, where the only thing lacking was the sunshine. But that didn't stop us from having a fabulous week exploring the island. We would recommend catching some waves at Compton Bay, Crab pasties at Steephill Cove. Walk to the Old Battery to see the Needles, wander around Yarmouth and a trip to Cowes. Osborne House isRead more also worth a visit. We would also recommend the chips from the Rainbow fish bat and a walk to the Hut ot Waterfront Bay Hide
