very clean, well equipped and comfortable, good heating/plenty of hot water. Our weather was not the best and the island had been suffering from the very wet winter so the nearest beach was slightly the worse but it was sandy and looked as if it could be good in the summer

A lovely cottage, clean and comfortable. Easy walking distance to Colwell Bay and into Freshwater. The house had everything we needed. We appreciated being able to sit out in the garden during the hot weather and were pleased that it had a secure gate to keep the children safe. Modern bathroom with a good shower, just be aware that there is only onRead moree toilet in the property. Two cars can be parked at the front but it is tight and requires some manoeuvring. Hide
