    • “Beautiful Secret Garden.!!!!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Wow I love this place so much. The host Justine was fantastic and could not do enough to make sure all of your needs are met. The Lodge was a real home from home, down to the biscuits on arrival. The dogs Wilf and Dougal were friendly and regular joined us in the lodge. The area is like you are in the middle of nowhere but Ryde is a couple of miles away.We came here because we wanted peace and quiet, We were not disappointed. Behind the house is a delightful little woods. If you go up the hill you will get amazing views of the Isle of Wight. The Wildlife Red Squires, Hare, Buzzards, Pheasants, and the Barn Owl of which I was fortunate to see, but did not have a camera in hand. The Springs is a little Gem and we will be back.”

    • “Perfect wildlife retreat”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “My husband and I first stayed at The Springs in 2014 and booked 2015's holiday when we got back home, that's how much we loved it! It is a very comfortable and cleverly put together cabin that is perfectly equipped for two people. If you are a fan of wildlife then you really shouldn't pass up the opportunity to stay here. The red squirrels are delightful - and are right on your doorstep every day - as are the various birds that visit; pheasants, partridge, green woodpecker, lesser spotted woodpeckers, greenfinches, goldfinches, chaffinches, blue tits, great tits and the very shy jay. It is a perfect get away from the day-to-day grind and gives you time and space to truly relax and unwind. The owner is very friendly and on hand should you need anything, but is respectful of your privacy too. If you can drag yourself away from the antics of the wildlife then seaside towns and island attractions are all within quick and easy reach. Only about 15 minutes away are some clean, quiet and picturesque beaches in Bembridge and White Cliff Bay which are worth making a special trip to. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Springs and will definitely visit again.”

    • “Truly worth 5 stars”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “So many times you visit a place with 5 stars and a luxury tag only to be disappointed. The Springs does not fall into that category. Rated 5 stars it is 5 stars plus. Everything about the accommodation is wonderful. Then there is the bird life. Oh and the red squirrels. Every time you glance out of the windows there are red squirrels, woodpeckers, long tail tits, blue tits etc massing the feeders so thoughtfully provided by Justine, the owner. Take a good camera and binoculars. Sit back with a cuppa or a glass of wine and enjoy.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “this lovely Scandinavian style pine cabin was very comfortable and situated in peaceful surroundings. It is situated in the garden of a country house which was visited by very interesting wild life eg red squirrels and rabbits. It is the only cabin in the garden therefore it is ideal if you want a quiet romantic holiday with privacy. It is situated near Ryde on the Isle of Wight and is ideal for exploring the island. You will need a car to enjoy this property.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a holiday experience that every nature lover will enjoy. It's quiet and you will find yourself totally immersed in the lives of the beautiful pheasants and the antics of the little Red Squirrels who play and eat nut in the small fruit tree right outside your window. The actual Chalet is just beautiful, offering all the essentials - and some more. The owners are there for you if ever you need them, but leave you alone to enjoy yourself. We just loved the place, and look forward to returning, as soon as we possibly can.”

    • “The perfect getaway”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “'WOW' just about sums up our stay at The Springs. Both myself and my partner normally enjoy holidays abroad but decided to do something a bit different and hire a cottage and our choice did not disappoint. The cottage itself is beautiful with everything you need for a short break (and I really do mean everything-from coffee right down to kitchen cleaner!!). The surroundings are stunning and if you're lucky, you will see an array of wildlife. Being in our early 20's, we wanted to explore the isle of wight and this could be done with great ease as we were so close to Ryde town and much much more. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time with the owner but she is such a gem and even offered to pop us into town so we could enjoy a romantic dinner without having to drive. She even posted my partners missing t shirt back to us as it had been left in the cottage by mistake! I would recommend staying at The Springs to everyone and we will 100% go back!!!”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had a lovely stay here for a week in the summer - not that there was a lot of summer about! We chose this cottage because of its rural location but central(ish) to the island. In fact we thought the location was absolutely perfect. Not especially easy to find, being up a long quiet lane but well worth the effort. The owner's house is next to the cottage and is entirely secluded. We particularly enjoyed the fact that the cottage was visited by red squirrrels every day and in fact we were sometimes woken up by them scampering across the roof to get at the peanut holders that were so thoughtfully provided by the owner. The cottage had everything you could need by way of kitchen equipment and bits and pieces - dishwasher tablets, cleaning materials etc. Should we visit the Isle of Wight again we would try to come here.”

The setting is perfect and the wildlife is a mixture of rabbits, red squirrels, woodpeckers ,pheasants all of which visited the garden in which the springs is situated, awsome!! The owner justine and her faithfull little dog wilf coudnt have been more helpfull and friendly. The isle of wight is the perfect place if you enjoy walking and there were walks wright from the doorstep of the springs. Plenty of things to do including a zoo seaside towns a railway and even if you want a little retail therapy head into newport. All in all a great holiday!! 10 out of 10”
