Couldn't praise this cottage more. Very spacious, tidy and clean, fantastic location with beautiful views and surrounding gardens. The hosts Colin and Julie Paxton were very friendly and helpful. Great places to eat in Bradiing, especially the Yarbride Inn which is close by. Great base to explore the island. Frequent Train services to Ryde, Sandown and Shanklin reasonably priced. Highly recommended A+++++++
We had a wonderfull 4 night break at the cottage. It had everything you needed and the location was central for us to travel to different island locations every day.
There was a nice garden to sit in and table and chairs to eat a meal outside.
A short car ride to the beach. The owners had thought of every thing and we would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family..
Excellent getaway in Brading, up a luxurious drive leading into a beautiful house with attached cottage. Colin & Julie greeted us as if we were old friends making us feel right at home. The cottage was beautiful, spotless, the amenities fantastic-we will be staying again!!! Julie also makes a mean cake :)
What a beautiful cottage, in a cracking location. The welcome from Colin & Julie was wonderful, along with the welcome treats in the cottage - THANK YOU! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves & the hosts were more than helpful to us. The cottage was immaculate & had everything necessary for a faultless holiday - the sun shone, the sea shimmered & the beaches had warm sand - what more could we ask for! We'll be back to the island again & couldn't fault Marmalade Cottage X
I chose Marmalade cottage because of the good reviews & found them to be every bit true! Colin & Julie are indeed wonderful hosts that make you feel so very welcome & at home. Being grandparents themselves,they really know what a family with young children need (ours being two lively boys aged 2 & 8), kitting out this home from home with toys and games and more than enough facilities. But equally they look after us parents, with treats in the fridge to greet you. Everything was absolutely perfect & I can't thank Colin & Julie enough for providing us
with such a lovely place to stay - we wanted to spend just as much time in the cottage as having days out (& this was in a hot, sunny week). Highly recommended!!!
Just returned from a lovely week here. Julie and Colin went the extra mile to ensure we were really comfortable with a lovely welcome basket (cake and wine) and checked in by text to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage has a great living space with kitchen and two large sofas, as well as a large bathroom and plenty of storage space in the bedrooms. Even in the hottest week of the year, its shady spot meant we always came back to a cool house at the end of the day. It's ideally located for exploring the whole island, and close to local pubs serving great food. The setting is beautiful with views over the countryside and sea too. We hope to be back before too long!
