  • "The cottage was clean and cosy."

    It had everything we wanted for a family week away. Kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of room for us all. The hot tub was an added bonus and so relaxing. Nici and Dave were so welcoming and provided us with everything we required. The courtyard and garden made it so private and was lovely and quiet. Well located for anything on the island. Great stay.

  • "The property is in an excellent location,well equipped and comfortable."

    The private garden and hot tub are a definite asset.Our host Nicola was very welcoming.She was honest about the shower in the bathroom regarding the temperamental thermostat but this did cause problems each day.Very slow to get warm water but then it becomes too hot and cannot be suitably adjusted.We understand that the Coach house is very old but this should be rectified as soon as possible.

  • "We had a wonderful time at the Coach House."

    The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Lots of room for the four of us, all the home comforts you need. We really enjoyed the garden and hot tub in the evenings (great view). My daughters really loved the two dogs that belonged to the owners too (which we saw in the neighbouring garden). The beds were really comfortable and we slept so well in the peaceful surroundings. Nici the host was such a lovely lady, so friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

    The garden was dog fenced and very pretty and the hot tub was a massive bonus. The hosts were lovely and couldn’t do more to accommodate our every need. Great dog walking in the area and it was a central location to almost every place on the Isle of Wight.

  • "The cottage was warm, welcoming and immaculately clean."

    The kitchen was well equipped, so much so we cooked our Xmas dinner with no problems. The living room was comfortable and cosy as were the bedrooms. The hot tub in the secluded garden provides the perfect end to the day, after exploring the island. We brought our furry friend with us, the garden was secure and with lots of dog friendly fields close by it was perfect. The location of the house is central on the island so everywhere is within easy reach. Really enjoyed our break, thank you x

    We had everything we needed, the cottage was clean, well-equipped and centrally-located. We explored the whole island and returning in the evening for a soak in the hot tub was absolute bliss, especially for our two teenagers! The dog enjoyed the garden & running around with the owners pooch’s too! A great holiday, 5 stars all round.

    It’s a great base to explore the island from, it has everything you need and is comfortable and clean. Your host, who lives next door, Nici, is very helpful if you need help with anything. The hot tub is a great addition in a lovely setting.

  • "Nichola looked after us really well and was very friendly and helpful, explaining how to use the hot tub and where there were good places to walk the dogs, have a drink etc."

    The cottage was a real home from home very spacious and clean with everything you need for a relaxed holiday. Along with towels, tea-towels etc a small bottle of milk and many condiments and other necessities (eg DVDs, board games etc) were provided. All we really needed to take apart from clothes and food were towels and flip-flops for the hot tub and food. The cottage was situated a short distance from Carrisbrook Castle and only a couple of miles from the centre of Newport. When we next travel to the Isle of Wight we shall stay there again (subject to availability of course).

  • "Wow! This cottage was absolutely amazing."

    Our family had a one week stay at the Coach House and we were not disappointed. The closed off court yard and garden was perfect for the children. The hosts were fantastic, extremely friendly and were brilliant for advice about where to visit and what to do. We will definately be returning and will be recommending this particular cottage to friends and family.

    The fence was quite spacious and I was afraid our dog might get through so kept her on a lead, as she’s very small and would have got through. Still a good time, with drives all over the island.

  • "Wonderful cottage which gave us security, peace and calmness."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely recommend to family and friends as well as returning ourselves. If we were travelling to the Isle of Wight again this would be our ‘go to’ place to stay. Perfectly located on the island for access to each and every tourist location. We went to research our family history and our hosts were very kind and generous with their help and support. The hot tub is a must and as a newby I am converted!

    The owner, who lives very near, was very kind and helpful. The surrounding is also very pleasant : the narrow street (Clatterford Shute) leads to Carisbrooke castle via a ford. Perhaps, we'll return there for another holiday.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Clatterford Coach House."

    It’s a lovely house, warm and cosy, and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We were grateful when we first arrived, weary from the journey, to see that among other things tea, coffee and milk had been provided! We needed the week just to relax a bit and it was perfect! The garden is enclosed so no fear of losing our ageing dog who is deaf and a little bit short-sighted, and is prone to wandering off! The house is situated only a short walk from the castle, and it’s a nice scenic walk up to it, and there are lots of public footpaths to explore the area on foot. Further afield are places to go, by bike (my husband and son). Would recommend this house as a cosy retreat in a quiet area, but central to everywhere on the island.
