    The cottage was very comfortable and the out look from the living room and bedroom was extremely picturesque. Helen and Paul were excellent hosts. I’m disabled and the went the extra mile providing a shower stool and a few other things I needed. We loved the island too. Lots of lovely places to visit. Many thanks to Helen and Paul for making our holiday a very memorable one.

  • "This is a lovely cottage with a fantastic view."

    The inside is spacious for one-bedroom accommodation and it was beautifully decorated and clean inside. As a full-time wheelchair user I managed really well inside as the doors are wide and it has a lovely wet room, however I feel I should point out the cottage is accessible but not adapted for a wheelchair user. The kitchen cupboards, sink and wardrobes are high. We were also surprised to find there is a high step down onto the patio/garden area as this looks to have level access on the website. However, the owner did offer us a ramp which would have helped us but the patio door also had a high lip so would not be practical for an electric wheelchair user even with a ramp for the step. These are all minor issues however and there are lots of plus points to this lovely property. We would go again.

    !!!! We enjoyed fantastic views, some pretty good Speedway (at Smallbrook Stadium), many a great drive, crab sarnies and sight seeing packed into our 5 days on the Island. Hope to be back next year for much of the same! Many thanks to the owner!

  • "We were so lucky to book 3 The Stables."

    Helen and Paul have produced a well laid out, stylish and comfortable cottage suitable for the disabled and a able alike. Welcomed with a welcome pack, splendid views and immaculately clean accommodation, and also a brief tour and “induction” by Paul. The Stables are located about 15 minutes drive from Fishbourne ferry terminal and Helen had arranged a stupendous ferry discount for us. Access is easy to all the Island especially Ryde and Newport. We had a truly memorable week.

    As I would say short of nothing but if you needed something Helen would get it for you. We will most certainly go back. The horses and foals and then the sheep kept us entertained . First topic of conversation every morning was exactly what every animal was doing and where they were. The view was endless from the lounge and the stars were clearer than we have ever seen them. Just perfect.

  • "The property was lovely and clean and the owners were very helpful and friendly ..."

    The property was lovely and clean and the owners were very helpful and friendly as had a couple of problems with the tv to start with the wet room was not very good I asked for a stool which was going to come from storage it never turned up the wet room is back to front the shower area should have been where the toilet was and vice verser as you have to walk though water after you’ve dried yourself and you had to keep turning the shower off while you washed yourselves as the water goes into the bedroom I suggest that the owners shower in it so they can see what we mean we used to own a guest house and if we had any work done on any of the rooms we would try them out before any guest stayed in them to make sure everything was fine, the bed was much to hard as were the pillows we recommend anti allergy memory foam pillows, we had plenty of crockery and cutlery except for tea spoons there could be another couple or three in the draw as we kept having to wash spoons up but other then that we found the views really good

  • "This was a great place to stay for a short late autumn break."

    We particularly appreciated the spacious layout of the bedroom (it being suitable for a wheelchair user). We are not wheelchair uses ourselves but welcomed the space, and ability to pack cases away. Too many cottage bedrooms are too tight for comfort. We were also glad of the well-stocked pack of domestic accessories, and enjoyed the opportunity to photograph the sunrise from our bedroom.
