  • "An excellent, comfortable and clean bungalow."

    The kitchen was very well equipped for self catering. The beds were very comfortable and we slept very well due to its quiet location. The garden was lovely and sunny in the afternoon with a table, chairs and sun loungers. The owners were very welcoming and have provided lots of information and leaflets, plus games, books, etc. The accommodation is not far from a large Tesco and a short drive to the ferry. There is such a lot to see and do that if we have the opportunity to return we would stay here again.

    It was very well equipped with plenty of cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils. There were plenty of outside chairs to sit on, a table and a barbecue. The owner of the property was very friendly and was there to greet us on arrival and to say goodbye as we left.

  • "Spacious comfortable property with every thing provided, built about 10 years ago by owners and is well maintained."

    Lots of space for parking and only a short drive to facilities. Be warned most village pubs stop serving food by 20.00 hrs. The ferry deal the owner offers is well worth taking advantage of. I think the best way to sum up is to say we will be back for a couple of short breaks this year.

  • "The Stables is a great place to stay."

    Very welcoming and lived up to expectations. It was lovely to sit outside in our own space to read and enjoy the sunshine when we weren’t out and about. Just minutes from the steam train. Slept really well in the comfortable bed which is unusual for me. So much to see on the island so we will be back and would not hesitate to stay here again.

  • "Very neat and tidy property."

    Well equipped and appointed. The method of access was good and correspondence with the owner and Sykes was swift and accurate. All in all a holiday cottage a bit above the norm. Just wish the blinds in the bedroom, at least, were curtains in order to keep out the early morning daylight!

    Everything from start to finish whilst staying at 1 The Stables was just perfect.

The chalet itself had all the facilities you need with an abundance of crockery, and household utensils, pots, pans, picnic name it, they were there so nothing was needed. There was a lovely bottle of wine for us on arrival along with biscuits, milk, tea and coffee. The beds were comfortable and the whole place was immaculate. Can't wait to re-visit, and we will !

  • "This small but well equipped two-bedroom cottage suited me perfectly."

    The location close to Ryde and yet in the countryside was ideal and it was a good launch point for my activities which involved walking and sight-seeing. I was able to return home to warm rooms, comfy furniture, Netflicks, great cooking facilities and constant hot water and then retire to one of the best beds I have ever slept in. Hosts were on-site but never intrusive. The IoW recycling system is rather complicated but there were plenty of instructions on how to get it right for collection day. There was a good parking spot and, had it been suitable weather, there was a small garden with BBQ. Outside lights were handy for the nights drawing in and I particularly liked the patio doors - these would be a boon in the summer. My bedroom had plenty of storage, a great dressing table/desk and loads of power sockets. The towels were a decent size and the shower had a strong flow of water. Finding wine, water and beer in the fridge was a lovely touch and I would return to this location and accommodation.

Situated on a quiet country lane just two miles from the beautiful sandy beaches of Ryde, these three cottages are located on a smallholding, where the family ponies and the local farmer’s sheep can be seen grazing over the fence. These three charming cottages have been fashioned from the old stable block and each has been decorated and furnished to retain the character and charm of their rural surroundings. With one cottage having two bedrooms and the other two having one bedroom each, these three cottages together can accommodate up to eight people. Each of these cottages has a private patio area and shared use of a lawned area where you can enjoy breathtaking views whilst you sip a morning cup of coffee as you plan the day’s activities. There are many countryside walks directly from these cottages, whether you enjoy a short stroll along the lanes or an all day hike over the Downs. The town of Ryde has an array of interesting shops, pubs and numerous restaurants as well as the beach, where children of all ages will enjoy themselves. Havenstreet, which is close to these cottages, has a wonderful local pub and the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, which provides you with a unique experience by taking you back to the bygone era of the power of steam. These cottages are the perfect location for you to explore the whole of the island, whether on foot, bicycle or car. Why not experience the local produce found all over the island or discover the many beaches and coves which have an ever-changing view? A fabulous group of three holiday cottages for a memorable holiday all year round.

There’s so much to see and do, catering for all ages and interests within the town and local area including a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, whilst the 6 miles of super, gently sloping sandy beaches are ideal for bathing.
