“Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had a great stay at Stable Cottage. Freshwater is a great location and the barn conversion was immaculately clean, well presented and in a beautiful setting. There is great outdoor space for children - mine loved 'helping' Andrew in his allotment and walking to see the sheep. We preferred the more rural and quieter side of the island but the major resorts of Ventnor, Shanklin and Sandown are within easy reach. Thank you to Andrew and Vickie for a great week!

“Acton Adventure”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Excellent location, no noise or light pollution. Slept like a log in this contemporary barn conversion. It had everything you could need for a holiday and was extremely well equipped.
The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and the ensuite lovely. The lounge and kitchen area were beautifully maintained and well stocked with plenty of games books etc.
We were very lucky with the weather, glorious sunshine showed the Isle of Wight in its best light.
Thank you Vickie and Andrew for letting us enjoy your little peaceful haven.

“Perfect Holiday Home”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This cottage was everything we had hoped for. Peaceful, clean, spacious, comfortable and fitted out with absolutely everything we needed to make it a truly enjoyable stay. The garden was safe for the children to play in and there was ample parking space. Very few places come up to scratch these days but "Stable Cottage" is definitely one of them! (I would love to go back to stay again and can honestly recommend this beautiful spot).

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed May 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed at Stable Cottage with my husband over May Day bank holiday, and we had an absolutely brilliant time! The cottage is easy to find and really close to some great walks (approx. 20 mins to Freshwater Bay, and Compton Beach and Yarmouth and also accessible along some footpaths). We haven't got a car so got dropped off by friends, but the cottage is close a bus stop so we had no trouble getting further afield.

The cottage itself is beautiful, we were very taken with the decor and relaxed feel. It was spotless and contained everything we needed for a weekend. The kitchen is well kitted out, the garden area has a bbq and table, and the bathrooms are fab. Our favourite part though was the beautiful view from the main living area - it was so relaxing to sit with a glass of wine looking over green fields and paddocks!

We met Andrew, who was really friendly and helpful without being intrusive - a perfect balance. The info pack in the cottage was really useful, and we thoroughly enjoyed the tasty shortbread :)

We go to the Isle of Wight a fair bit, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks!

“OUTSTANDING cannot recommend enough.”
Reviewed April 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We are regular visitors to the island and we look forward to staying again. The accommodation has everything anyone would want. Every little detail is taken care of. The cottage is immaculate and well maintained. The family are very welcoming and very helpful with tips on good walks and places to visit.

“Fabulous find!”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We rented this cottage for 12 days over the Christmas and New Year period. Myself, my husband and two young children (3 & 4 years).
The cottage is bright, spacious and immaculately clean.
It has everything you need in the kitchen. Lovely bathrooms and comfie beds.
Our children loved it there and felt comfortable and 'at home'.
Andrew and Vicki were friendly and welcoming. They stayed in touch via email, even checking we had everything we needed on Christmas Day. They balanced this with giving us space to enjoy and lovely family holiday.
Excellent location for walks, the beach and local facilities.
We would definitely go back and stay again. We have recommended it to family and friends already.
Thank you Stable Cottage!

“Home from home”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a lovely week in Stable Cottage. The accommodation is comfortable and nicely done and we had everything we needed. The garden is fab (and we had the added bonus of being able to pick vegetables from the kitchen garden!) and house and garden together are perfect for a family holiday. We come to the IOW every year and this is one of our favourites - could quite happily have stayed a bit longer...
