  • "This is a lovely little cottage, very convenient for local amenities - pub right opposite & another a little further down the road ( this was great for food !"

    ) , a Co-Op , and a couple of restaurants- not to mention the castle. Newport easily reached, only about 2 miles away. The cottage, is right on the high street, so can be a bit noisy with traffic during the day - but we got used to that ( we would rather be close to local businesses than in the middle of a field ) It was just the right size for the two of us to use as a base , kitchen had all the facilities we needed. Always great to have bath as well as shower. Good size double bedroom, and although mattress perhaps a little hard- I found it suited me. Clean throughout, and not the sort of musty smell you’d get from some properties . Lovely little garden & patio area to the rear. The few details I would change, however- I would have preferred a comfortable sofa , rather than the two bolt upright armchairs in the living room. Thicker curtains may have cut down the traffic noise particularly in the bedroom. The house was warm enough, and hot running water, bit slow - but plenty . Had trouble with TV , but having contacted the landlord ( Nick ) soon replied, spoke pleasantly regarding the issue ( which was down to us being impatient with the remote !) We would love to stay again, regardless

  • "Castle Cottage advertised WiFi which was incorrect, there was no WiFi which was very inconvenient."

    The bed was cripplingly hard and in desperate need of a soft topper, or a new mattress. Lounge, kitchen and bathroom were all good, and the back yard a bonus. Rick and Jenny

  • "Noisy location, well presented but not having wi-fi was a problem."

    The listing said it had wi-fi which was not true. If we had known ths we would not have booked.

About the location


Newport 1.4 miles; Cowes 6.2 miles; Shanklin 10.1 miles

A bustling village resting on the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke can be found settled on the south western outskirts of Newport. Best known for Carisbrooke Castle, a point of interest which has been all of an Elizabethan artillery fortress, a king's prison and a royal summer residence, this village is a wondrous base, with a variety of amenities to cater to all tastes. The village's medieval parish church of St. Mary's is a talking point; once part of a Benedictine priory, established by French monks in around 1150, there's so much to explore here. Within the village there are two pubs; the Victorian-era pub and inn of The Waverley and the Grade II listed The Eight Bells, along with a Turkish Restaurant, Italian restaurant and a local shop. Feed the ducks at the Carisbrooke Millpond, or take a trip into the vibrant county town of Newport where you can take a stroll along the River Medina before exploring its wider range of eateries settled amongst its Museum of Island History and art centre, or explore the outskirts of the town to find the 88 acres of countryside in the form of Robin Hall Country Park, with a plethora of walking routes and a scatter of family-friendly attractions to be discovered. Venture into the Isle of Wight Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for even more stunning scenery, as well as the wonder of Compton Beach walled by sandstone cliffs and offering a scenic experience like no other. To the north of the village you can also find the coast of Cowes, with even more wonderful beach walks, independent shops, a golf course, various museums and historical landmarks, it's well-worth a visit. Sitting at the centre of the Isle of Wight, the village of Carisbrooke is ideally positioned for exploring the many attractions that the area has to offer, with easy links to Portsmouth for a day out with a difference.
