    The view was really impressive. Outside the cottage is the perfect place to sit and relax, read, eat, drink etc. It is a good base to explore the island. We liked Mottistone Gardens for a picnic and a walk, they have a big natural play area in the shade that occupied our children for a long time. Sandown Beach and Ryde are lovely big sandy beaches. Kids loved the pirate themed crazy golf by Ryde beach. Freshwater is a nice pebble beach for evening walks and watching the sunset (there is a bar too - The waterfront). The accommodation is decorated and maintained to a high standard but the basins in the bathrooms need replacing, one is missing it’s door and is water damaged. The sinks are too small. The kitchen is well equipped (useful as eating out isn’t as desirable at the moment). Sinks aside, the cottage is lovely. We normally go to Cornwall but the Isle of Wight is a much easier journey from the West Midlands and is a really beautiful place. I can imagine we will return at some point.

The village of Totland rests in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the west side of the Isle of Wight's beautiful coast, offering visitors local shops and pubs and spectacular unspoilt coastal scenery. The award-winning beaches of both Totland and Colwell Bay offer a range of activities, whilst a pretty footpath will take you to Freshwater in ten minutes where you will find its golf course and public swimming pool. It is also an excellent starting point for walks along the Tennyson Trail.

A great destination with plenty to see and do!
