David W - Sep 2012

This cottage is perfect for visiting the Isle of Wight. The owners were nearby for any problems and milk, cake and fresh eggs were left in the fridge upon arrival. Only two years old, the cottage was like home from home. Modern facilities (TV/DVD, clock radio, large shower room etc) but still kept the old world charm of a country cottage. It has been awarded 4 stars but in our mind it should be 5 stars Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

We rented both cottages in September 2012 and listed as 4* rating. These cottages were not 4*. THEY WERE 5*. They were immaculate and all facilities were of such a high standard and quality they were exceptional. Full marks to The Owner and family for our most enjoyable stay in I.o.W.

John G - Oct 2012

This was an excellent clean and comfortable cottage, with helpful and friendly owners, and in an ideal location; quiet, central, well served, footpaths from the doorstep, well equiped. One would be comfy living there permanently. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

David W - Sep 2012

This cottage is perfect for visiting the Isle of Wight. The owners were nearby for any problems and milk, cake and fresh eggs were left in the fridge upon arrival. Only two years old, the cottage was like home from home. Modern facilities (TV/DVD, clock radio, large shower room etc) but still kept the old world charm of a country cottage. It has been awarded 4 stars but in our mind it should be 5 stars Cottage Rating: 5 Stars
