Very well equipped property in a fantastic location for walks. Lots of comfortable space around the property to relax. Well stocked shop within walking distance but a fabulous 'high street' in Freshwater with all the individual shops you would need. Pity no woodburner but central heating very effective.

Beautiful house, in a perfect location, kept to a high standard. Gorgeous sea views from every bedroom. Within easy reach of Freshwater (try the coasteering), Yarmouth, Colwell (paddleboarding) whilst being in the calmer environs on Totland and with a path to the beach directly below the house. Lovely garden for relaxing at the end of the day. WellRead more-equipped throughout. Owners obviously take the trouble to look at all the finer details. A very enjoyable stay and we hope to return. Thank you! Hide

Chine cottage is an absolutely beautiful place to stay, we had a lovely week there and were blessed with great weather. When you have small children, going somewhere that has such a beautiful garden was invaluable. The boys loved it, and the area was so quiet we all slept really well. It is a really short walk to the beach which was perfect, and thRead moree Waterfront Bar and Restaurant was perfect for a lunch out. We would definitely return if we visit that area again. Thank you for a lovely break! Hide

Chine Cottage is a very well equipped homely property and we were very comfortable there. The rooms are all a good size and beds were comfortable. The parking was a little tricky as we had to park 2 large vehicles but we managed. The location is ideal for exploring the island and there are lots of lovely walks from the cottage.

We holiday in the UK 3 times a year and this was our 1st stay in Chine Cottage but it wont be the last. The cottage is well equipped, the owners have thought of everything you can possibly need and it has that real homely feeling which in our experience is rare, the Christmas tree was very special, we have never had one in the past. The one bed thaRead moret we used was comfortable, the views out of the bedroom window are lovely. Gordon called to make sure we were happy which was a definite yes. Hide

We ended up staying for 11 weeks and are very grateful to Gordon and Sarah for accommodating us at such an unpredictable time. Chine Cottage was a very comfortable and well-equipped home with a great location. We spent most of our 11 weeks in lockdown and were very happy Read moreand comfortable in the cottage. Nice walks down to the bay which is visible from the cottage. Handy restaurant and shops/ just down the road. Hide
