Previous visitors' comments about Herveys Cottage:
Being in a thatched cottage about the same age as ours in a different part of the country. There wasn't a problem at all being next door to the landlords. They are very nice people.
Mr Ward, Pewsey, September 2012
The welcome offered by the owners was very warm, our stay was very comfortable and we'd be very happy to stay again.
Rev Nicoll, Wallingford, August 2012
This cottage is in a good location for exploring the Isle of Wight (our first visit to the island). It is comfortable and well equipped, and has a lovely garden. The owners are very pleasant and welcoming, and respect one's privacy. Would happily return.
Mr Williams, Ottawa, July 2012
Excellent location especially for doing coastal walks. Owners were excellent hosts and made sure we were well looked after without being overbearing. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Will definitely return.
