Guest Reviews


    • “Perfect little house”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Stayed in number 3 for a week in July. I wasn't sure what to expect having never stayed in a cottage before on holiday. The house was wonderfully presented - clean, tidy and with a few homely touches. It had everything we could need for a 7 nights stay and more! Only found the BBQ in the shed half way through our stay. Only minor gripe was that the blinds weren't black-out so early morning sunshine was a pain. Very handy to have a 'corner shop' within staggering distance. And a couple of pubs for lovely evening dinners. Great stay! Would highly recommend for families with small children.”

    • “This cottage is the perfect base for a holiday exploring the Isle of Wight. It was clean and fresh, beautifully presented with a nautical theme. The children loved the bunk beds and the books, dvds and games provided. Brading itself seemed a little odd, with not much going on and just one rather disappointing/expensive shop. But it was quick and easy to get about and only took about 10 mins by car to get to the beaches at Yaverland/Sandown and Shanklin. Loved it! ”

Shops and restaurants were within walking distance and it was easy to travel around the island. Excellent communication with the owners. We all loved it and will return!”

    Mr Chapman, Leeds, January 2015

    • “Everything was excellent throughout”

    Mr Yates, Nuneaton, October 2014

    • “The situation of the cottage was perfect for us as we were visiting relatives nearby. We particularly liked the 'seaside decor' and thought it was very well put together. The convenience store 20 metres away was also an added bonus.”

A small historic rural town, steeped in history going back to the Stone Age, Brading is close to many attractions, from the 1900 year old Roman Villa, to Lilliput Dolls Museum and the beautiful Nunwell House, which hosted Charles I on his last night of freedom. Around Brading there are 70 footpaths taking in the beauty of the marshlands and its amazing bird life, stretching to the Downs, which lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Just outside the town you will find Adgestone Vineyard, which is set on the south facing slope overlooked by Brading Down, where it is believed the vines were originally planted by the Romans; its award-winning wine was chosen in 1994 for the dinner for the Queen to celebrate the anniversary of the D-Day Landings.
