The cottage was lovely, really clean and well equipped. Nice to have on suite bathrooms with great comfy beds. We hired bikes from wight hire which was brilliant.

The accommodation has everything you could want, and we loved the location; we enjoyed watching the red squirrels. The accommodation is set-up for 8 guests & there is plenty of room for everyone, you do not feel squashed. We love visiting the Isle of Wight and would happily return and stay in this accommodation again. Perfect!

This is a special place! Beds were super comfy, even the singles which is very unusual in our experience. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and comfortable. We loved the location, peaceful and private, and especially enjoyed having woodland so close and access to the lovely fields around the barn. We would definitely come again.

This is a great place to stay but beware the ground floor bedrooms have steps down one and up the second one. But we had a peaceful time there the log burner was a warm help on the colder nights and Winston and Sarah were very helpful advising us of the best places to see.
