  • "The Cottage was really lovely, was greeted by lovely owners who explained all the facilities, tv workings internet etc."

    plenty parking. Only downside for us was the beds were quite hard so for those with any back problems would find it difficult. Apart from this we would certainly rebook in the future.

    E. toilet roll - as this may block their systems). Super cottages in the countryside yet less than 10 minutes by car from Ryde town centre and the beach, about 10 minutes from Havenstreet (steam railway). A haven of peace and quiet-somewhere to relax and re-charge! Hopefully we will be back.

  • "We only had a brief weekend visit to this wonderful place, and only wished we could have stayed longer."

    Everything from start to finish whilst staying at 1 The Stables was just perfect. We were met by friendly and helpful host Helen on arrival and she showed us around the chalet and gave us advice on getting from A to B. 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.

    Extremely comfortable beds. Cosy for October and did not need heating on even though the end of the week cooled down. Seat pads on the dining chairs would have been nice on the wooden chairs. Quiet location and no noise from adjoining cottage. Only cottage that has provided a thermometer in the fridge. I usually take my own! Easy access to hypermarket and Fishbourne ferry. As birders and nature lovers I.o.W. is superb.

Ryde, fondly known as "The Gateway to the Island", is the largest town on the Isle of Wight and became popular as a holiday destination in the 1820s. Today, the regular ferry, catamaran and hovercraft services make this lovely resort accessible for all. 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. Along the esplanade there are bowling greens, tenpin bowling, putting greens and children’s rides as well as a boating lake and paddling pool.
