This was our second visit to Grebe Cottage having previously stayed in July the year before last. We got to utilise the open fire this time which was wonderful. We love this area of the IOW and Grebe Cottage is perfectly placed to explore the area but also situated in a quiet location to switch off at the end of a days walking and exploring. The cottage has all the home comforts to make this a truly relaxing and enjoyable break. Highly recommend.
The cottage is in the most beautiful area,nearby the sea, a quiet place in a very green surrounding. The rooms are very nicely furnished with pretty personal things,everything is very practical, clean, tidy with all the necessary informations that one needs.
Shanklin and Ventnor are nearby - pretty villages one can reach by bus or walk through lovely countryside or along the coast.
Osborne House is a lovely place to visit - so is Freshwater bay and lots more places !
We had an amazing week at Grebe Cottage. The location was perfect for walking to the beach. The recommendations for places to eat were excellent, and many of these were within walking distance. The cottage was well equipt and we felt relaxed whilst there! We look forward to visiting again.
Never before have we arrived at our holiday accommodation and just walked around the place saying 'wow'! A lovely cottage, superbly furnished and with plenty of space, situated in a quiet village but only a short walk into Ventnor where there is plenty to do and a lot of good places to eat. Close both to superb walking country on the Downs and the sea at Monk's Bay.
Communication from the owner couldn't have been more helpful and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Grebe Cottage in Bonchurch is a beautiful place to stay. It is in great condition, very tastefully decorated and has everything you need. Bonchurch itself is a pretty village, close to Ventnor and the sea, and it is lovely and peaceful. Ruth was great at communication, and even left wine, milk and chocolate in the cottage for our arrival. I can't recommend Grebe Cottage highly enough, and will definitely want to book it again when I visit the Isle of Wight next year.
Glebe Cottage is a great place to stay. My wife, 20 year old boys and I have a great time. The Cottage is well situated in a lovely village, within walking distance of all of Ventnor and driving distance of Shanklin and Sandown.
The Cottage is well fitted out and very comfortable. Very much a home from home. There are numerous walks around Bonchurch and some beautiful beaches.
Glebe Cottage is a little gem and we would all highly recommend it. We booked for a week, but we all agreed that we could have easily stayed for two weeks.
Thank you to Ruth for providing such lovely accommodation
Bonchurch is a very nice village a few minutes walk from both the beach and the downs. Grebe Cottage is very nice, comfortable and in a beautiful spot directly opposite the duck pond. Would love to stay again
