This is a very pretty cottage, peacefully located among fields of grazing sheep and horses, yet with easy access on foot to Lake, Shanklin and Sandown for shops and beaches. It could be chilly in colder weather until the electric heaters have taken effect, but once warmed up, it was comfortably cosy. Children need to be warned about the scaldingly Read morehot water while the steep, narrow stairs could be a problem for very young children or less nimble adults, but older children would love the woods.

Great cottage and great service

Reviewed by Christine Hopkins September 2017

What a wonderful, relaxing holiday. We met the owners and they couldn't have been more friendly. The comfortable cottage worked it's magic. We all had a great time. A great base to explore the island but equally to just spend time recharging your batteries in the huge garden. Thank you.

Second time renting. As before, a pleasant place to stay. Updates to the kitchen and decor made the cottage more comfortable and homely.
