A very unusual and quirky cottage! Staying there felt like a great adventure, and one could picture it situated on the hills of northern India.

We loved the Indian Summer House and have already recommended it to friends. Our only regret is that next year our toddler will be too big for a cot, so we will have too many children (three)to visit again before they have grown up. But we will definately be back - we loved it!!! Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

We really enjoyed our stay, the cottage is on its own in secluded woodland. Cowes is also a very nice town with good shops either side of the water. We hired bikes from the bike shop in Cowes midweek and really enjoyed a cycle around the estuary. Cottage Rating: 4 Stars

The Indian Summer House was a complete escape, at night it is so quiet and dark that we thought we were miles from civilisation, but infact we were only a two minute walk away from a fantastic restaurant and hotel. In short we loved it! Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

We loved the Indian Summer House and have already recommended it to friends. Our only regret is that next year our toddler will be too big for a cot, so we will have too many children (three)to visit again before they have grown up. But we will definately be back - we loved it!!! Cottage Rating: 5 Stars
