Adjoining and Courtyard Cottages Isle of Wight

Adjoining Cottages Isle of WightSometimes the ideal holiday cottage is actually two adjoining holiday cottages so that larger families and groups can holiday together while having their own private spaces. We offer a lovely range of adjoining cottages or courtyard cottages which are next door to one another or are within a few meters.

Most adjoining cottages are located around a courtyard, farm yard or built in and around a manor house. This means that it is only a few steps to visit other members of your holiday party if you meet for dinner or prepare to go out.

Our adjoining self catering cottages are all over the Isle of Wight and can be viewed from our special adjoining cottages pages Adjoining Cottages Isle of Wight

Specific adjoining cottages pages such as Mead Cottages, Wackland Farm Cottages, Lower Yard Farm Cottages and Redway Manor Cottages all have cottages neighbouring each other and can be viewed from the Adjoining Cottages page.
