Kitchen was very well equipped, we baked and cooked in with no problem, wifi worked well, instant hot water boiler worked well - never ran out of hot water.

Beautiful peaceful cottage with a superb garden. The wildlife pond was a joy, and we loved watching the ducks each day. Romany was thoughtfully equipped, and located in a lovely quiet area. Very handy for the ferry at Yarmouth, and a few good shops nearby so that catering was easy. Only 10 minutes from Totland beach, and some great walks to TennysoRead moren Down and Headon Warren. This is a perfect base for exploring the island if you want to be away from the more touristy areas. Hide
