Dunnose Magna is a wonderful luxurious holiday home.....HOME! Three generations of our family loved every moment of our time there. We visited over Easter and the attention to detail was remarkable. As well as an Easter tree each room had a Easter egg for each guest. Superb! Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Joyce W - Jul 2013 5 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

We were very impressed with the comfort and position of Dunnose Magna. To call it a cottage seems almost inadequate for its size. The gardens were more like a park and the furniture and fittings were of a very good quality and standard. The hosts welcome pack very much appreciated. Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Violet C - Jun 2013 5 Star Holiday Cottage Customer Rating

The nine of us that stayed in this cottage thought that the accommodation. surroundings, views, gardens, etc were excellent.

Cottage Guest Book - Sep 2011)

What a little piece of paradise. We hope to return and will gladly recommend you.

Cottage Guest Book - Aug 2011)

The thatched cottage is set in beautiful gardens with rolling lawns and stunning plant displays. It is also near the lovely Bonchurch which can be reached by a pretty costal path with fantastic coastal views of the sea. The path also links to Shanklin and Ventnor providing us with a couple of fantastic walks. We can't wait to go back next year.

Cottage Guest Book - Jul 2011)

This beautiful setting will surely be the highlight of our vacation in England. Looking forward to showing photos of our dream location to friends in Canada.

Cottage Guest Book - Mar 2011)

A little piece of paradise! Exceptional gardens. We will definitely return.

Cottage Guest Book - Jan 2011)

To describe this as a piece of Rural England paradise is NOT an exaggeration at all! A superb location in a valley surrounded by downland and with the English Channel on one side. The thatched property is what you would expect to find in 'Ideal Home'. As for Dunnose Magna gardens - Be sure to bring your camera - and that is from someone who does gardening for a living!
