Cottage was very well equipped and clean. Lovely furniture and comfortable beds. Perhaps stairs could be mentioned as there are a lot. Good bus service close by.

This is a comfortable, well equipped property but there are a number of points to consider. Parking is an issue: It's difficult to leave the car close to the property. We were given keys which let us into the kitchen: Leaving the house from this point, one has to be very aware of traffic since there is a short blind path directly onto the road. If Read morethere are any people in the party who struggle with mobility, then (as Michelle writes in her review)this would be a problem Hide

Great location, lovely house, though it should probably come with a warning for those who cannot manage stairs. There are several scenic walks just outside the door which was great for us..

Wonderful, spacious property, tastefully-furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen and stunning bathrooms. Comfy beds with great sea views! Be aware that the property is high above the town, but a frequent bus service stops very close by. So much to see and do on the IoW!
