“Perfect cottage for an island getaway”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We booked this cottage for a few days holiday and were really pleased that we found it.
The cottage is around a 20 minute walk from the ferry in Yarmouth, and was easy to find. Upon arrival, we were greeted to the beautiful cottage with a bottle of wine and some lovely local apple juice.
Unfortunately the local store in Yarmouth was closed the week we were staying, but it is not too far to walk (or drive) to Freshwater where there are larger stores.
The cottage itself was comfortable, had everything we needed to cook meals and had fantastic views of the Solent, the Fort Victoria Country Park and the many bunnies on the lawn!
For those who aren't driving, it's very connected via regular public transport to all attractions on the island, and lots of places (such as the Needles) are within walking distance.
We would highly recommend this great little cottage for anyone visiting the Isle of Wight.

It took me a while to find this on the web, but I'm very glad I did. I wanted a cosy cottage with a real fire close to Yarmouth with sea views for a winter weekend break. Well, that's exactly what I got; plus the owners could not have been more helpful during the booking process and during our stay. Fort Victoria is on the doorstep, and it's a lovely 15 minute walk into Yarmouth along the coast; there's no shortage of great places to eat and drink there! It would be equally lovely in the summer - being away from any road with walks, open spaces and beaches it would suit a family perfectly. Very hard to fault - highly recommended.

Its pretty good. Cosy stay for us but didnt do much outdoors as it rained most of the time. Open fire made up for it though!

“Superb house”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We had a great time in this holiday cottage. It was very well equipped and the owners left out complimentary wine and apple juice which was very well received. Also left out were dishwasher tablets, cloths and washing up liquid which was very useful too. It was a lovely location and very peaceful.

“Perfect retreat, beautiful cottage, the beach and woods were brilliant for the dogs.”
Reviewed March 17, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We had never taken our dogs away with us before so were a little apprehensive, the cottage was a wonderful place to stay for people with dogs and children, with a wood directly behind which led sown to the shore.
The shore isn't suitable for bathing but has sand and rocks, with lots of interesting rock pools for your children to explore, just along the coast a little (within walking distance) is a beach suitable for bathing.
We were very sad to leave the cottage and hope to visit again very soon.
