“Still The Best!”
Reviewed September 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A quick review update following our second visit and stay at Kings Cottage. Aug 2015.
The house and facilities are still in great condition and everything is well maintained.
The location really is special and it feels peaceful and private which helps you to unwind from a normally busy life.
The owners are really nice, helpful and approachable should you need anything.

We look forward to our next visit.

“Peace and tranquility”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

1 Kings Cottage was a very clean, well maintained, well equipped holiday cottage. It is ideally situated being well off the beaten track but only a few minutes from East Cowes town centre, the Red Funnel ferry port and of course very close to Osborne House. We spent many of our evenings relaxing in the comfortable conservatory either reading or watching the wildlife in the garden. All in all a lovely cottage in a perfect location. I would definitely recommend this cottage to all my friends.

“Lovely peaceful cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We rented Kings Cottage for two weeks in May. The cottage is bigger than it appears in the photos. Easily accomadates four adults our kids are 18 ,15, and it was fine. The owner has really thought about your holiday needs. We had no need to buy anything extra such as cups cutlery etc even hand soap was provided.
We will return to this cottage as we loved the quiet peaceful area.The cottage was very clean. If we had to come up with a negative, it would be that the cottage has no heating other than electric radiators. But these do work fine and we were warm enough. The main living room has a wood burning fire. This took us ages to get to grips with, the trick is that some of the logs provided are quite big. You need to start with kindling ,then medium logs then,later the larger ones if the fire is burning well enough. You will need to buy some medium logs to bridge the gap between kindling and the larger logs. We loved this cottage and would recommend it to our friends with out hesitation.

“Brilliant Family Holiday”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

1 Kings Cottage is a lovely place to stay for a family Isle of wight holiday, It comfortably sleeps a family of 4, with one King size and 2 singles, mattresses are pretty hard but everything is clean. The bathroom is large and clean, the electric shower does lack power as most of them do, but plenty of hot water. The kitchen is great and well equipped with everything you need, there is even a washing machine. The lounge is very comfortable and the wood burning fire is lovely. The conservatory is also good and a great place to eat breakfast.
The cottage is very secluded and is located down a private road, there is no passing traffic so had no problems letting the kids play in the very large garden, where there is a trampoline, swing and various other toys.
The cottage is located 10 mins from the ferry, and is in a great location on the edge of the Osborne estate, Robin Hills is not far as well as all the east coast beaches, Ryde, Sandown, shanklin etc.
This was the best family holiday we've had yet and will certainly be returning.
As far as self catering rentals go, trust me this place is up among the best. Hope you all have as much fun as we did.
