  • "Lovely cottage was very homely and very clean ."

    All the stuff you need for a comfortable stay . Does say dog friendly but be aware they are not allowed upstairs or on furniture. Lovely little garden perfect for a pooch . The only little downside and it is little is the chairs in the lounge could do with updating not so comfy that’s a small thing otherwise a lovely place to stay.

  • "The property was exactly as described."

    Jude sent very detailed and easy to follow instructions before the stay which made our arrival easy. The property was extremely spacious and well equipped with everything needed. There were loads of towels and bedding and the kitchen has everything you could ever need The fresh milk and flowers were an added bonus. Our only point of note was for those with small children the listing mentions a stair gate but be aware this is only at the bottom of the stairs and not the top We would definitely look to return to this property again and would recommend it to anybody wanting to visit the Island

  • "Very well laid out property and heating was good when we had finally worked out how to light the gas fire in the lounge."

    We only tried once to use the hob (induction) and found the instructions too difficult to follow and ended up using the microwave. Otherwise the kitchen was very clean and well laid out. There were only 2 of us, but the property could easily accommodate 5 people. The garden was also well maintained and looked pretty.

  • "The whole process felt welcoming and communication with the owner was excellent."

    The property was spacious and comfortable for five adults, and especially useful was having a second fridge/freezer. Thoughtful touches included milk and a vase of fresh flowers on our arrival. The location is great if you like local walks to several beaches and the countryside - and the local Co-op was always well stocked for our needs. Thank you Jude and Sykes for a wonderful holiday!

  • "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.

    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.

  • "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.

  • "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 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 electric 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.
