It was a great holiday everything was there and provided for us. It was really was a home from home.the location was really peacsful and secluded.The garden was great for our 5year old child. She had great fun playing in the garden. The cottage was one of the best holidays that we have had on the isle of wight. the only negitive points was that the windows did not open wide enough when it got to hot on the bed rooms up stairs. Really great cottage. Worth the money would love to come back. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Sarah - Aug 2010 4 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

Only additional comments would be that neither bathroom had an electric shaver socket nor any shelves or cupboards which meant that toiletries had to just sit on the floor or around the bath/shower. Not the end of the world but with children there are some things that you need to keep out of reach. Also outside in the garden the path is subsiding in one part which made it quite difficult for our 18 month old to walk on without falling over. Overall Rating: 4 Stars
