“Fantastic self catering cottage as well as great B&B”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I reviewed seahorses some time back for a bed and breakfast stay, which was wonderful - welcoming, cosy, beautiful artwork to enjoy around every corner, a delicious breakfast and great location for exploring. We recently returned to stay in the relatively new self catering cottage and found this a great alternative, extremely well laid out and equipped, with the same cosy and peaceful feel as the main house plus the benefit of being able to cook for ourselves in the fully equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed some activities in the art studio, with mosaic making, sculpting, silk painting, watercolour, printing etc on offer, and returned to London feeling rejuvenated after just a few nights there. We'll certainly be going back!

The location is ideal , close to centre of Village and 10 mins walk to the sea (talking the adjacent footpath.....rooms vast and garden is heaven for anyone with Children who love to run around and explore in a safe environment...Boris and team made all feel welcome , and breakfasts were amazing..........Would definately return also loads of books/DVDs videos to use

A large B&B run by husband and wife. Lovely staff at breakfast too. We stayed in July but the wettest June/July on record so far and chilly - so I can assure you the hotel was warm and clean and cosy. But also fresh bright airy rooms with large windows. A great balance. Great location. Highly recommend for your get away!

Room Tip: Room 1 was lovely

Our family group was aged between 12 and 80 years and we all loved our weeks stay at Seahorses on Isle of Wight. We stayed in Studio Cottage, a newly converted stable block, tastefully decorated. We had our own garden which is fenced in, handy if one wants to take your dog. This is the second holiday we have had here and we plan to make it an annual trip. Seahorses is 10 minutes drive from Yarmouth which is half an hour ferry ride from Lymington in the New Forest.
Freshwater is a lovely part of the island, very unspoilt with cliff walks close by. As we were self catering we used the co-op for our supplies which is less than 10 mins walk mostly through a country path. What I love best is the Art Studio which is 4 steps away from the Cottage, (making it easy to pop back for a cup of tea after a mornings work) where we were all able to try our hand at what ever craft we fancied. Mosaic, Silk Painting, Clay, Stained Glass, Fused Glass (jewelry making), Drift wood models, T shirt stencilling. Boris (artist) is on hand to help with advice and show you what to do if you need help. Great fun was had by all and we came home with our new treasures and happy memories.

Room Tip: Very comfortable beds and a good shower.

We took our children here. Fantastic place to stay. Very welcoming and excellent service. There is an art studio where we had a go at working soap stone.
Good night sleep and great location.

B & B Seahorses has lovely spacious rooms, a very big and beautiful garden, for the rainy days a living room with a fireplace (+ TV, video’s and DVD’s) and gives you many delicious options to choose from for breakfast. I think it’s situated on the best corner of the Island (not that touristic). From the garden you can start several beautiful walks via the many public footpath the Isle has to offer. In the evening we enjoyed very tasteful meals in walking distance of the room. But the most important thing: Boris and Brenda are so kind and helpful you feel welcome from the first moment. If I visit the Island again I would definitly go back to Seahorses!
