A lovely cottage which was very clean, had an extremely large and comfortable bed and a great shower. These three things are very important. Very welcoming owners too. In a wonderful rural location which made getting around the Isle of Wight very easy. A very enjoyable stay and hope to return before too long. Many thanks.

The cottage was in a lovely spot on the south coast of the island, very quiet surroundings. There was an issue with a water problem that the owner has in hand but apart from that it was a lovely spot.
