Cottage is very comfortable. When weather is fine the bi-fold doors can be opened wide. When weather is not so good cottage is cosy. One small thing, which I think quite a lot of cottages forget, is leaving a kitchen cupboard empty for your own dry food goods. Briar Lodge had 2 empty kitchen cupboards!!

We had a fantastic week for half term with 2 kids and a pup. The lodge is excellent and is really well finished and kitted out with all the mod cons plus a few extras. Sarah was a fantastic host and made sure we were well looked after and even suggested activities for us. The kids loved the open space and making friends with the horses in the fieldRead more. The nearby village of Godshill is lovely and has several decent places to eat, an amazing bakery/cafe and some good touristy shops to browse in. Hide

Fantastic location to explore the island from. Lovely and peaceful. Secure garden for the dog to be off lead and some cheeky horses being nosey from their fields provided great entertainment. Property was well laid out with a handy utility space upon entry, useful to wipe the dogs feet and place shoes.

There are huge bi-folding doors from the living area to the garden which is so peaceful. You can sit and look at the views and watch the horses.
