Lovely cottage in a great location - just across the road are Brading Marshes, great for dog walking and bird spotting (herons, egrets etc). Host was great and the cottage superbly equipped. Would love to visit again.

This cottage is excellently decorated and very welcoming. The homemade cake and wine was a pleasant extra too. The enclosed garden is ideal for dogs to be certain they are safe and a comfortable place to relax with comfortable seating and lighting. The Duver is an excellent place for dogs and in all would certainly recommend this cottage for a holiRead moreday on the island. We will no doubt be visiting next year. Hide

From the moment we walked through the door I knew we were going to have a great holiday. The scrumptious cake and wine just topped it. A home from home, very well thought about and spotlessly clean. Lovely little village, with eateries in walking distance. I have no qualms in recommending this to anyone, Eveline

This cottage is just amazing. Its beautiful inside. Immaculate, decorated and furnished so thoughtfully and the garden is secure all the way round. The location is great too. Youre near all the main tourist attractions (although nothing is far away anyway!) and the RSPB marshes opposite are lovely too.

This cottage was beautiful and the interior very well designed. The fact that the owners trusted their guests and their fur babies to treat it well was wonderful. Away from the noisy parts of the island but near enough to get to essential places. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful cottage (beware the low beams) and medium sized garden - busy road can be intrusive. Small property so 1 bathroom, no dishwasher - a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. Definitely somewhere we would come back to. Not quite close enough to beach for a walk, but crossing to the marsh is healthy alternative!
