  • "The brochure stated that the garden was fully enclosed, which it wasn't."

    We chose this property because we were taking our son, daughter in law and to energetic grandsons ages 3 years and 17 months with us. The enclosed garden was one of the deciding factors. The property itself had been lovingly restored and was positioned close to the beach and playground. The problem was that the owner was in the process of having various work done resulting in the garden resembling a bit of a building site. The furniture and fittings were of good quality but the dining room chairs were too low, there were no hooks in the shower room or the bedrooms so we were unable to hang up towels, coats etc in the rooms. the patio was lovely but there was only enough seating for two people when the cottage was for 6. Overall we enjoyed the cottage and the location. I have informed the owner and he is going to change and add things so it will be interesting to find out what changes have been made.

  • "Tower Barn is a warm and spacious property."

    We took a 4 day break with my in laws and teenage son, all of us were very impressed with the renovation work and the living space. The neighbourhood is very peaceful so it really was a successful choice and a restful holiday.

  • "Beautifully decorated holiday house which was cosy but still enough space for 3 generations to relax in comfort."

    We loved seeing the views from the tower and all the IOW had to offer. Would definitely recommend!

  • "We loved our stay in Tower Barn Cottage."

    The quality of the finish was excellent and the beds were really comfortable. The area was also excellent for getting to the beach and within easy distance from the ferry and other attractions.
