“An amazing tranquil woodland location less than 100m from the beach!”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A lovely warm welcome from Debbie and Steve to their beautiful cabin set in private secluded grounds, perfectly safe for young children or dogs, our Labrador thought it was her new “forever home”.
As promised we saw red squirrels every day plus a variety of birds including woodpeckers. The property was cosy and excellently presented, easy to find, with everything needed for our stay.
The walk to the beech was less than a couple of minutes, accessed directly across a very quiet lane, perfectly safe for our dog off the lead all the way from the front door!
Cannot recommend it enough!

“Perfect Location”
Reviewed August 21, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What an amazing location.I've been to the IOW many times but this topped the lot!
Red Squirrels in the garden,a really great bucket and spade beach.Take your binoculars and watch the ships go by or rockpools that give up their treasures if that's what you're into.
My grandson wants to live there in our little house.Very warm welcome from our hosts.

“Beautiful retreat cabin with owners that go that extra mile .....”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just got back yesterday and it was one of our best uk family holidays.
Having 3 children the cabin was ideal for the 5 of us it was very cosy and clean and well equipped. The outside is beautiful with birds and red squirrels regularly visiting of a day and is very secluded. The owners went that extra mile to make our stay enjoyable and even printed info out for us about the cowes week that was on. The only negative was we didn't get to stay an extra week !! Great value for money and ideal location as a base and close to the beach, ryde only down road which was our favourite beach town. Thanks ever so much Debra and Steve we will definitely recommend to family and friends and also visit again ourselves.

“A place that symbolises with tranquility”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just got back from 5-day holiday in IoW along with my partner, his mum, and our 2 lovely dogs. We stayed in the Woodside Beach Retreat (2 bed) and as soon as we saw the place we just fell in love with it. The accomodation itself was sorrounded with trees and bushes which gave us some shade as it was quite warm. The cottage was clean and tidy, it got everything that we need especially the kitchen utensils (pls pay extra attention to hob covers!) and even my partner's mum who always have something to say negative in everything (hope she wont read this review) was very impress and even mentioned that her bed was very comfortable. The beach is a stone throw away thus, we take our dogs to the beach for a nice walk. Above all, Debbie and Steve were very hospitable and friendly. The only downside that my mum in law has said is that she wasnt able to see the red squirrel! We definitely coming back next year!

“Tranquil island retreat”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We are a family of five who holidayed there for ten days. The cabin is lovely and very clean, with everything you need. Debi was extremely helpful and friendly and checked in now and then to make sure we had everything we needed. The cabin has enclosed gardens making it nice and safe for the kids and private parking which makes a huge difference on a very busy island. Off the beaten track there is no traffic noise and the garden is visited by a variety of birds and red squirrels. We would highly recommend
