The cottage was very clean and immaculate. The hospitality was warm and welcoming. The location was very good, in a quiet turning but a short drive to the nearest amenities. It is close to Fishbourne and to Newport, so also very convenient for getting to and from places.

Reviewed by Dawn 3rd January 2020

A beautifully restored cottage in a quiet location, right next to an antiques emporium so lovely for a browse around. The cottage is well equipped with a large comfy bed, and the summer house well positioned for sunsets and looking across the Solent to Portsmouth, I would definitely recommend for a quiet romantic break.

Pretty little cottage in peaceful surroundings. We were very comfortable and our hosts had provided everything we needed. The log fire was wonderful. The gardens were beautifully maintained and the summerhouse a nice bonus. The island didnt let us down, with sunshine on most days.

The owners have created an attractive and comfortable environment in refurbishing this pair of cottages to a very high standard. The summerhouse is a real bonus for occupants of no. 2 and the side garden to this cottage offers a high degree of privacy.

What a find! This absolute gem of a cottage is even better than the online listing makes it look. Everything has been thought of, right down to the motion sensor light in the walk-in wardrobe. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and equipped to a high standard. It's the perfect base from which to explore the Island - nothing is very far awayRead more - and at the end of each day's adventure you get to return to the tranquility of the cottage. We'll definitely be returning. Hide

The cottage was idyllic, it was well presented with a perfect blend of old and modern furnishing and facilities. The owner visited twice first to welcome us and then on our last day to wish us farewell ( a nice touch). If you want a quaint cottage in a lovely setting Two Dores is well worth considering.

This is probably the best self-catering cottage for two that we have stayed in. there was some concern when we saw a previous comment about "dirt track" access to the property as our car is rather low. This comment turned out to be unfounded as the access road is limestone gravel so no problem. The cottage is in a great location for all Island attrRead moreactions and is a credit to the owners, Ann and John, very clean with every detail considered and everything you need for a great holiday.
