“Wonderful break in the Isle of Wight”
Reviewed May 30, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My friend and I stayed at West View Cottage for a week in May, we had a wonderful relaxing break. The cottage was the perfect size for us with a lovely sunny garden and just a few minutes walk from the main Ryde High Street while still being in a quiet location. All the rooms were clean and tidy and the kitchen had all the utensils you could need. We ate out most nights and can thoroughly recommend a visit to Three Buoys, The Duck and Michelangelo's, but booking is essential for all 3 restaurants. The Bottega bar is also great for Prosecco or a gin and tonic in the sunshine. We will definitely be returning to the Isle of Wight and to West View as it is the perfect base for exploring the Island. Many, many thanks to Peter for having such a fab cottage available to rent!

Hi Abby
Thank you for your kind words about the cottage. Yes the location makes it very easy to get around the island by public transport.
Your choice of eating places is interesting and I am glad they all did Ryde proud. Look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes Peter

Fantastic location with sea views to the front and a lovely sunny terrace to the rear makes this a super holiday cottage. Parking is just a minute away and shops and beaches at the end of the road. there is even a pay as you play tennis club opposite ! We really enjoyed this break as the cottage is very homely and feels like a good place to be during the day. I would thoroughly recommend West View cottage.

“Lovely cottage in an ideal location”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for a week. The cottage was lovely, well maintained, clean, well equipped and modern. It was the ideal location for a family of 4 to explore the Isle of Wight. The train station, bus station and beach are only a short walk away. The beach at Ryde is beautiful, particularly Appley beach. Appley beach is only a short walk eastwards from Ryde Esplanade.
The cottage is very close to the wide selection of shops and restaurants and is situated on a peaceful lane. The cottage has a pleasant small rear garden to relax in. We travelled here from Yorkshire by train and ferry. You don't need to bring a car as from Ryde you can visit many places by the very punctual Island line (Train) or bus. We had an excellent holiday.

Dear Kath
I am delighted that the cottage and location gave you all a 1st class base from which to explore the island. As you say Ryde has much to offer and with its transport links is ideal for holiday makers with no
personal transport.
