  • "Cannot fault the cottage itself even though there was a plumbing issue which was promptly resolved by the owners we were just disappointed with Brading."

    We were expecting local pubs which we could walk to and have a meal and drinks but the 2 remaining pubs in the village felt like no go places with broken windows, looked uncared for and empty of customers also not serving food. However would recommend The Hungry Bear restaurant just round the corner for a special meal and the fish and chip shop was good 1 minute walk away. Bus service very close by was very good.

  • "Enjoyable holiday."

    We had nice weather which helped. The house was well equipped. We had everything we needed, from hair dryer to iron, ironing board and dishwasher. However, we did have a few problems with the upstairs toilet flush.

  • "Great base for exploring the island."

    Beautifully finished cottage, in a lovely style, very clean and with everything you can think of you might need. Thank you for the extra touches like fruit, jam, fizz, and biscuits. Makes it so welcoming. Only minor issue was the bbq was not summer ready with a rusted grill, but this is really the only negative mention. Everything else is perfect and would definitely recommend.

    I would like to recommend grab-rails by the toilets if possible for the help of the less mobile please. Thank you.

    One of the best self catering cottages we have been to. We would happily go again and recommend others to try it for themselves. A great base for exploring the island with lots to do close at hand. The owners left wine and fruit, along with other goodies. Very welcoming.

    The mews was set back from the main road and very quiet and in a convenient location for everywhere we wanted to visit. The host had left wine, milk and fruit as well as tea, coffee and various condiments to be used. This was greatly appreciated.

  • "As many other guests have noted in the visitors' book at this property, it is exceptionally well-equipped, clean and comfortable."

    Parking outside the door and wifi were appreciated and the shower is brilliant (important if you are a walker, cyclist, etc). There are lots of attractions within walking distance but the whole of the island is also readily accessible from this location, much of it on foot or by bike, bus, train or car. There is also a wide range of supermarkets on the central and eastern side of the island, so guests can easily fit a quick shop into a day out.

  • "This property is possibly the best we have ever used."

    As others have said, it is so convenient for bus stops with excellent pubs and a Fish & Chip shop very close. We took a car which had its own designated parking space but used the very efficient Island bus service quite a lot. The property is very well equipped and is very clean and beautifully finished. Special thanks to both Sykes and the Owners for accommodating our change of week caused by an unexpected family problem. Will look here first when next we visit the Island.

  • "We made use of the "Freedom" ticket on the buses."

    A single pass is £24.00 but if you are a group of 5 or under (as we were) we had a pass costing only £55.00. Excellent value for money and we travelled extensively during our 7 days. The bus stops in both directions were located literally less than 5 minutes walk from the property. The drivers were able to enjoy a relaxing holiday too. The property was small but well appointed, top quality. Sykes has more than satisfied these customers again this year!

About the location

BRADING

Sandown 1.7 miles; Ryde 4 miles; Newport 8 miles.

A small historic rural town, steeped in history going back to the Stone Age, Brading is close to many attractions, from the 1900 year old Roman Villa, to the beautiful Nunwell House, which hosted Charles I on his last night of freedom. Around Brading there are 70 footpaths taking in the beauty of the marshlands and its amazing bird life, stretching to the Downs, which lie within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Brading also offers three welcoming pubs which serve food daily, a professional international auction room, with one to two auctions every month, specializing in fine art antiques and modern and vintage wares. Just outside the town you will find Adgestone Vineyard, which is set on the south facing slope overlooked by Brading Down, where it is believed the vines were originally planted by the Romans; its award-winning wine was chosen in 1994 for the dinner for the Queen to celebrate the anniversary of the D-Day Landings. Brading is also perfectly located for many of the Islands beaches, with the sands of Sandown and Yaverland only 1.7 miles away and the rock pools of Bembridge beach 3.5 miles away.
