An excellent cottage in an excellent location which can be thoroughly recommended. We will be returning.

It was a lovely cottage and location, easy to get about. We had a problem with the hot water one morning but it was easily sorted out by seeing the owner who immediately sorted it out. Although the pub was across the road there was no noise at night but it was more a place for eating rather than popping in for a drink. Saying that it didn't stop usRead more calling in. Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage which was spotless and very well equipped. It is ideally situated a short drive from the Yarmouth ferry and close to Newport for shopping etc. keeping when not in use. I would definitely recommend staying here.

A very pleasant stay in a clean, well presented and equipped cottage with a warm welcome on arrival. Booking both cottage and ferry was straightforward. A very relaxing time for our baby's first holiday. Thank you from Colin, Sarah and Evie.

Malthouse Cottage is a real find. It is spacious, comfortable and equipped with all you need, and there is a pretty garden to relax in if the sun shines and it did for us the whole week. The pub across the road with excellent food is a bonus.
