“A Hidden Gem - Home from Home!”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had such an amazing stay at Carriers Stable this summer. Vanessa was so helpful from the start of our booking right up to our arrival!
The cottage itself is located in a small but busy village on the south side of the island and couldn't be more perfect! The Cottage had everything you could ever need and was beautifully furnished and decorated. It was really nice to have our own private driveway and garden which we could relax in, and also know we had a lovely comfy sitting area to relax with a bottle of wine in during the evenings.
We had a very relaxing time and felt very sad to leave this amazing holiday rental. But we will be back as we can think of no finer place to stay when we come to visit the Island!
Thank you for making us feel so welcome on our holiday (Which also doubled as our 1 year wedding anniversary) and for keeping such a fantastic holiday rental!
Steve and Tor

“Best Iof W holiday cottage we've ever stayed in!”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

My sister & I had left booking our annual I of W holiday cottage very late and were delighted to come across this little gem of a cottage. By far the very best cottage that we have ever stayed in on the island, the owners Vanessa and Glynn have thought of absolutely everything in terms of home comfort and equipment and were on hand for any queries that we did have. They couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.
A big plus for my 11 yr old niece was the excellent (free!) wifi.
This year we opted for a less remote location(Shanklin) but we may well return again in the future!

“A very comfortable quite and enjoyable stay”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I took our 20 year old granddaughter for a week in July. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The walks from the front door were outstanding and you only need to drive 5 minutes to join the coastal path.A 10 minute walk to the village centre where there is a shop which sells everything you could possibly want. The 3 Bishops pub in the village does excellent meals .what else could you possibly want? We would love to return.

“Great location for exploring the island.”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our stay at Carriers Stable has been lovely. There's a little table outside in a small garden that catches the sun in the late afternoon, perfect for relaxing in the sunshine.Everything is very close by as well, given the size of the island, but a few highlights nearby would have to be the Isle of Wight Pearl, the beach down by Grange Farm, and Mottistone Manor Gardens. The beach, in particular, is just perfect on those days when the sun is shining and the wind is still. pick up some provisions at the village shop, make some sandwiches and have a picnic on the beach and do some fossil hunting.

“All you could ask for .. and more !”
Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Vanessa and Glyn have thought of everything when it comes to providing the perfect base from which to explore the island. Carriers Stable is so well equipped that you could easily spend the entire day there should the weather be unsuitable for touring.There is a great selection of books to read, free Wi Fi, Satellite TV,dvd player,cd player and plenty of local guide books to help plan the day ahead. The Stables are spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the upstairs bedroom and bathroom/shower are very spacious. The village of Brightstone is picturesque and has plenty of local amenities, including village store with local produce and two pub/restaurants of a very high standard, all within walking distance.We look forward to our next visit !! :)
PS The roads are really quiet on the south side of the island..and a joy to drive on !!
