  • "Very nice, spacious place, well equipped, we especially liked the garden."

    One suggestion is to provide a recycling bin in the kitchen to help visitors keep their stack of recyclable objects tidy. Note: Some of the games are broken now/worn out and need replacing (e.g. Guess Who is missing cards, Scrabble unplayable so much of it is missing).

  • "Our second visit to this property which is conveniently placed for a relaxing holiday on the quieter side of the island close to The Needles and Compton Bay."

    The house is airy, comfortable and well furnished and the garden is beautifully kept. The poet Tennyson's house Farringford is less than a mile away and is well worth a visit.

  • "Lovely house as described."

    Situated in quiet area with beaches easily accessible. Just a 10 minute drive from the Yarmouth Ferry and with shops, takeaways and pubs within a few minutes. The house was clean with everything that was needed. Plenty of bedding, towels and blankets if required. I would definitely recommend the house and the owner Jude was very helpful.

  • "Great holiday cottage in a great location."

    It had everything we needed and a lovely garden. The only downside was that the wi-fi was a bit slow, but otherwise it was perfect.

  • "We enjoyed our stay with our grand daughters and the dog."

    The cottage is ideally placed for both! A couple of small points (not criticisms) We noticed the hot water never got particularly hot and wondered whether we should have done something ourselves to boost the system but were reluctant to “fiddle” Also the dish washer wasn’t particularly efficient. We used a number of different programmes but the dishes weren’t always cleaned off properly.

    Felt precarious standing in a bath. Also difficult getting in and out.

  • "Good location , nice walk across field to Totland Bay each eve to watch sunset."

    Had blackout blinds which is always helpful & no street light to disturb sleep. However I felt that the house needed a deep clean, my dog has come back with fleas ? Although in a quiet setting there are 2 young and very noisy children next door. Fence needed to be higher as every time adults walked out of garden could see in so no privacy. Would suggest that the climbers on back wall be cut right back as they came up and around bedroom window which meant couldn't have windows open in sweltering heatdue to insects and spiders coming in.

  • "The house had everything an active family needs for the IoW, including a hose pipe to wash the wet suits / boards!"

    The best thing was location - easy access to West Wight and the local beaches at Totland, Colwell and Alum Bay (Needles). We even walked into Freshwater as it was so close!

  • "We arrived during storm Dennis and the weather during our whole week was extremely wet and windy."

    Although the weather was not great we still managed to explore the island. Our holiday cottage was extremely comfortable (possibly the comfiest we have had) the beds especially, and everything worked as it should even the WiFi which was important to our nine year old daughter. The holiday Cottage was extremely warm and inviting when we arrived back from a wet and windy walk. We would definitely consider this property again if we went back to the Isle of Wight

  • "Had a lovely holiday in Fieldside."

    Owner was very pleasant and helpful. There was plenty of linen, towels, kitchen ware. A lovely house and garden. The kitchen could do with being ungraded especially the units, white goods and boiler. Plenty of parking round the back but drive round was a bit bumpy. Would recommended this place for a nice stay in a beautiful part of the IOW.

  • "The house was situated in a nice area."

    It was handy for at least 3 different beaches ( one was walkable by an old guy of 71 who had a cardiac arrest last year ! ). We were 5 adults and I thought we would be a bit crammed. But the house was spacious and we had plenty of room. All beds were comfortable. There was every facility you could possibly require. The back garden was pretty and nice for sun-bathing

  • "The house is lovely."

    The location is peaceful, with gently bleating sheep just over the back fence, yet it's still within an easy walk of both the village and multiple beaches. The garden is well enclosed, which is a great help when travelling with dogs or children. I've been very impressed with the standard of all of the Sykes Cottages I've stayed in, and this is the best yet.

    We awoke to bird song each day and the absence of street lights meant the starry night sky was spectacular. There are many footpaths within easy reach of the property which lead to shops in the centre of Freshwater, Tennyson Down, The Needles and Freshwater Bay to name a few well known locations. There are 2 good pubs which serve good food within easy walking distance (one along a footpath, one along a country road (so take a torch). The property was cosy, warm and had all appliances we needed as well as plenty of towels and bedding. Being a quiet location, a good night's sleep is virtually guaranteed.

  • "This was a tranquil spot in an idyllic location."

    The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. We were blessed with fine weather for our stay and particularly enjoyed relaxing over coffee on the patio in the mornings. The garden was very pretty, secluded and a great sun trap. The cottage had everything we needed, and helpful information about the appliances, and also about local attractions. Both we and our dog loved the fact there were public footpaths pretty much from the front door, and being able to walk to the sea was an added bonus.Sunset drink at Waterfront Inn highly recommended! Good location for exploring the scenery and heritage sites on this beautiful island. We'd definitely like to come back.

The property

Totland 1 mile.

A lovely, welcoming semi-detached holiday cottage between the beaches of Totland Bay and Freshwater Bay on the west coast of the Isle of Wight.

This lovely cottage is perfectly located, in a semi-rural location, for a fun-packed traditional coastal holiday for families and friends alike.

The side door of the cottage opens into the kitchen, fitted with everything you would need for your holiday.

On the day of arrival there is parking for you to unload by the front door, where you will find plenty of useful coat hanging and shoe and boot storage.

The living area is situated at the back of the cottage, with lovely views of the patio and lawned garden, with comfy seating and a gas fire to relax in front of, after a day exploring the beautiful coastline.

Upstairs is the spacious master bedroom, with a stunning king-size antique sleigh bed and plenty of useful cupboard space.

The second bedroom is a twin, with the third being a single bedroom.

The family bathroom has a bath with a shower over the bath.

Outside there is a pretty cottage garden, with a patio and a lawned area with stepping stones leading up to the back gate.

A lovely, private space for relaxing with a revitalising drink at the end of a day full of adventures.

Fieldside is set between Freshwater Bay and Totland Bay with their clear waters, safe swimming and pebble and sandy beaches.

Close to Freshwater Bay is the Isle of Wight Adventure Activities centre, which offer exhilarating watersports for the whole family such as kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and boat tours.

After a day on the water, why not walk to Totland Bay and enjoy a relaxing evening at The Waterfront, watching some spectacular skies as the sun sets over the water.

Prefer to be more inland, then there is horse riding, golf, stunning walks and mountain biking, making sure there is something for everyone.

A lovely cottage, in a wonderfully convenient location that can be enjoyed all year round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
