It was a lovely cottage and location, easy to get about. We had a problem with the hot water one morning but it was easily sorted out by seeing the owner who immediately sorted it out. Although the pub was across the road there was no noise at night but it was more a place for eating rather than popping in for a drink.

Friendly welcome. Bright, clean cottage. Tasty gastropub next-door. Surrounding walks worth exploring. Our 1st visit to IOW, this lovely cottage helped make it for us. There is an A-road at bottom of garden which means traffic noise mixes with bird-song, however this didn't impact our stay. Highly recommend to others. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

Lynne Tithecott - Sep 2017

It was a lovely cottage and location, easy to get about. We had a problem with the hot water one morning but it was easily sorted out by seeing the owner who immediately sorted it out. Although the pub was across the road there was no noise at night but it was more a place for eating rather than popping in for a drink. Saying that it didn't stop us calling in.

Friendly welcome. Bright, clean cottage. Tasty gastropub next-door. Surrounding walks worth exploring. Our 1st visit to IOW, this lovely cottage helped make it for us. There is an A-road at bottom of garden which means traffic noise mixes with bird-song, however this didn't impact our stay. Highly recommend to others. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars
