The Bowman family from Leeds - 04/04/2015 - "We have had a lovely holiday this week with myself, Ruth, daughters Evie and Orla and Grandma. We've been very lucky with the weather and managed to explore lots of places. Sainham Farm is an excellent location with so much to do and not far away. Couldn't fault the cottage at all - very clean + well equipped. A lovely relaxing week had by all! Thank you."

The Weston family - 02/02/2015 - "We have had a fabulous holiday this week, made all the more relaxing and pleasant by the comfort and beautiful surroundings of Stag Cottage. It is very well kitted out with everything we needed for our stay and was always a pleasure to return after our days out."

Hoskins family from Australia - 12/4/14 - "We have had a wonderful holiday for the week at Stag Cottage and the Isle of Wight. We have had the opportunity for my 80 year old mother to see relatives she has not seen for 70 years. A very emotional time for all. We ate out at several pubs and cafes and can honestly say we have never had a bad meal. The woodlands behind the cottage has great walking paths where you can a see a variety of birds and red squirrels. We even saw a badger. The cottage is well equipped. We will be back again because one week is not enough to see everything"

The Palmers from Reading - 21/9/13 - "We've had a fantastic week. The cottage is wonderful & amazingly high standard. We loved lunch at the Crab Shed in Steephill Cove & had a great afternoon on the beach at Ventnor (our 14 month old loved it). Sunday lunch at The Taverners in Godshill & Model Village great fun. Steam railway is worth a visit too. Great week."

Local Walk From Godshill

Walk or Cycle to Shanklin - This walk first follows the Stenbury Trail to Wroxall and then the cycle track to Shanklin. To reach the Stenbury Trail from Godshill head out of town along the main road towards Shanklin before turning right after 200 yards onto the trail. Continue up the trail to the Freemantle Gate (photo of the Freemantle Gate) which you pass thought and follow the path which bears left across the fields towards Appuldurcombe and Wroxall. There is a wide flat cycle way that runs from Wroxall to Shanklin. The track starts below the old railway bridge in the centre of Wroxall. If you are walking there is a footpath leading from alongside the bridge to the start of the track but if you are on a bike you must cross the bridge and follow the cycle path signs. Once you are on the track it is clearly signposted all the way to Shanklin. The track runs along the old railway line and the banks on either side are lined with lush vegetation.
