  • "The Springs was well situated for us as we wanted to visit Frampton Marsh ( 9 minutes in the car)."

    It was spacious, with outside space/verandah which we really enjoyed, furniture and decor was more retro but suited us as very comfortable. Close to Boston although on this occasion we did not visit it. Certainly recommend it

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Springs, in lovely countryside, with an abundance of birds on the feeders to keep you company."

    Two red Squirrels sighted collecting nuts. Everything worked perfectly in the chalet, the bed was so big I am sure my wife slept in Sandown and me in Shanklin!! We would have no hesitation in rebooking. Now, not a criticism, but just my observation. It is a 40 yard trek across what can be wet grass to the chalet. Secondly, the swimming pool really is in the area adjacent to the owners home.

  • "This cottage is amazing."

    A great welcome on arrival and we were delighted with the beautiful setting. Everything you could possibly need is here, from the fully equipped kitchen to the comfy bed and spacious lounge area. Watching the squirrels and many birds feeding in the trees outside the door was mesmerising. The pool just a few steps away and the only noises are the birds outside and the wood close by. Easy to get to so many local attractions and great viewpoints. Such a glorious find and we shall be back

  • "The Springs was an ideal 'away from it all' holiday location and exceeded our expectations."

    It wasn't an issue for us but access from the parking area across a large expanse of lawn without a path might be a problem for other guests, particularly in wet weather. In all other respects, the location, facilities, cleanliness and peace and quiet were a real treat, not to mention the profusion of red squirrels feeding in the trees just outside the kitchen window !

    Justine, our host, was as lovely as ever. The peace and quiet was much needed and although the weather wasn’t great for our stay it was nice to come back to The Springs and curl up listening to the rain on the roof. The property is finished to a high standard and everything is thought of. The wildlife was amazing and although we didn’t see any red squirrels this time the birds were there in abundance. A great place to stay.

    This needs addressing. Also it was advertised as no dogs aloud but the owners had 2 Dogs which were aloud to roam anywhere and even came into our chalet. And on several occasions there was did pop in the garden we we had to ovoid . Little things make a big difference

The property

Ryde 3.1 miles.

Situated within an Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty and set within extensive lawned gardens in a tranquil, rural location close to Ryde on the Isle of Wight, The Springs is a unique, detached Scandi-style, eco-friendly timber lodge.

The perfect setting for a romantic break for two, the lodge has been completed to an exceptionally high standard and offers superb open-plan studio accommodation.

On entering the property, guests are greeted by a stunning pine-vaulted interior, and it is apparent straight away that every need has been catered for from a Smart TV and WiFi to a sumptuous super-king-size bed and a sensational outdoor, solar-cover heated swimming pool , which is open 1st May to 30th September.

You can imagine spending many happy hours chilling out in the pool or enjoying time eating and drinking alfresco under the eaves of the lodge while soaking up the rural views; holidays don’t get much more relaxing than this.

The lodge is in the extensive grounds of the owner’s house who is happy to provide locally-sourced produce from one of a number of nearby farm shops, by prior arrangement so that you can look forward to delicious food prepared in the amply fitted kitchen.

The delightful gardens are frequented by wildlife including red squirrels, hares, woodpeckers and badgers, and you might even catch sight of the stunning, white-tailed eagle soaring high above.

There are some lovely walks straight from the door and nearby is Ryde, with its numerous attractions, glorious sandy beaches and a good selection of shops and restaurants, whilst the attractive harbour at Bembridge offers great facilities for boating enthusiasts.

The Springs makes a great romantic base for two, whatever the weather.
