We had a lovely week in this cottage, it was absolutely immaculate and in a great position for getting around the island. We meet the owners on arrival who couldn't have been more helpful. We would highly recommend the cottage and happily give it 5 stars.

We had a lovely stay at Strawberry Cottage. We were made to feel very welcome and the facilities at the cottage were brilliant. The IOW is a great destination for families. Our stay was in peaceful surroundings with easy access to rest of the island and its attractions.
