The cottage is wonderful and has everything you need. Shirley is very welcoming and kindly told us about the blind we could open as it was very hot. The rabbits, pheasants, red squirrels and barn owl kept is amused. Absolutely wonderful holiday

A lovely cottage surrounded by fields. Very peaceful, but also close to local pubs and a supermarket which can be reached easily by car. Would definitely stay here again.

We were looking for a relaxing holiday break as we had both retired earlier this year, and this certainly hit the spot, in a quiet rural location Definitely a major point as well was the bottle of wine provided by Shirley (Owner) who insisted on coming over to check we were happy with where everything was

This cosy but ample cottage offered all we needed for a comfortable and relaxing holiday, with wonderful views of fields and downland. It is ideally situated for all parts of the Island. The friendly owner living next door could not have been more welcoming and helpful.

We had a wonderful time staying at Robin's Retreat, it really is a lovely, cosy, very comfortable cottage in a quiet location with stunning views over the hills opposite. We found it a good place to be based, with easy access to routes all over the island. For the most part, the cottage is well-equipped and the owners are very friendly and welcominRead moreg. I would highly recommend this cottage to anybody seeking a quiet, get-away-from-it-all holiday! Hide
