Little Granville Cottage is a fine place to enjoy a holiday. It is in a quiet rural area with easy access to most parts of The Island. The property provided all that we wanted, was well looked after and plenty big enough for the two of us. The owner lives in the nearby farmhouse and was helpful and friendly.

Lovely cottage on its own in a gorgeous location on a farm. Total peace and quiet but within 15-30 mins of all the great locations and beaches. Shirley is a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble. Great for couples. Highly recommended.

A cottage that was comfortable to laze away your time. Set in a beautiful area with extraordinary views to the hills. Easy to get to but not too far away. With a friendly host, we had a week to remember. We shall return.
