    Very cosy cottage with all you could want and more excellent hosts very welcoming Cottage would benefit for some sun loungers

    Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you and we are delighted that you had such a lovely holiday. We will look out for some weatherproof sunloungers as there would be nowhere to store them inside. Hope to see you again one day. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous time in the cottage plus a secure garden for our Cockapoo Charlie, we toured most of the island, a short walk or drive to wonderful dog friendly beaches, accommodation was very good, everything you could need and more, plenty of garden furniture for outdoor dining."

    .⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My only issue…..Some sun loungers would have made it perfect.

    Michael's house. Sally was very welcoming and generous. The homemade cake was very tasty. We had a very comfortable and cosy stay and all the extras for our dog were a real bonus. We would definitely visit again.

  • "A wonderful winter break in this cosy cottage."

    Our hosts were welcoming and generous. The cottage is ideally placed for exploring, with many beautiful walks on your doorstep. Walking distance to post office, pub and an amazing antiquarian bookshop. The surrounding coast and countryside is impossibly pretty and the night skies literally sparkle. We’ve had a lovely winter break and would highly recommend.

    We are so pleased that you had such a good time and look forward to meeting you again. Property Owner

  • "Just got home from a wonderful week at St Micheal's House."

    Honestly cannot fault it at all. Sally was there to welcome us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the cottage and told us some history of the property. She had even baked us a cake and put a pint of milk in the fridge so we could have a cup of tea whilst we settled in. All bed linen, towels, etc were included. Also little things like hairdryers, soap, and washing up liquid which most places always overlook. The house was lovely and clean and very cosy. The garden is a great size if you have inquisitive dogs and/or children. Very pet-friendly. Dog beds, towels, blankets, water bowls, and treats were all provided which was a nice touch. I managed to break my ankle on the first day of the holiday by falling down a pothole on the causeway. Sally was lovely and offered us aids such as a wheelchair, shower seat, and bath seat in order to make our stay more comfortable. She also gave us some ideas of places to visit which were accessible. I honestly cannot think of a single bad thing to say about the whole week. Even the weather was good for Halloween/Bonfire Night week. Lovely host and lovely accommodation. We ventured out to Appley park which is a must-do for anyone who wants a walk along the coast and also through woodland etc. And also the walk that Sally recommends when you check-in (Just watch out for potholes ;) ). Also busy bees garden centre is right opposite the big Tesco and a must-do. Especially if you visit when their Christmas shop is there. It is a beautiful place to go and visit. We will definitely be coming back next year once we have booked annual leave. Thank you so much!!! <3 x

  • "Sally is a brilliant hostess and we have never been to a place better prepared for dogs."

    The garden is secure, there are dog bowls and treats, it all works. And the kitchen has all the gadgets you might ever hope to see and then some. Beds comfortable, everything sparkling. Easy to get to once you spot the little road. And never have I heard so many birds. The woodpecker was clearly practising to compete with Liam Gallagher, Philip the Pheasant was on fine form though we didn’t see Philippa. The Best Dressed Crab just down the road gave us outstanding sea food, crab baguettes and lobster salad. Lily’s in Seaview dud us proud for Monday pre ferry brunch. And St Helen’s is v convenient for everywhere we wanted to be. Almost certainly going back, if Sally will have us.

    The garden is lovely and ideal for dog owners. I must admit that I had a very lazy week and look forward to going again. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Sally is a nice lady that genuinely cares to provide a good service. The location is ideal for a lovely holiday with Bembridge coop, boots, butchers, bakers, fish and chips and pubs nearby.St. Helens has a small general store which carries all essentials. I will be back.

  • "St Michael's house was absolutely perfect for our stay."

    Sally and Anthony were so welcoming and helpful, and the cottage itself was so comfortable, homely and well equipped. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog, who made it his own immediately. Fantastic barbecue and all the tools you could need. Thank you also for the delicious cake Sally! St Helen's is a lovely little village, our youngest enjoyed the park on the green, and we all enjoyed a walk to the Duver and St Helen's beach via the causeway - especially when the tide was in! We love the Isle of Wight and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

  • "The cottage was perfect for our dog friendly stay, the enclosed garden was tidy with a lovely patio, tables, chairs and brand new BBQ."

    The accommodation was clean and everything was brand new from pots and pans to linen and towels. The Cottage is very cosy and the gas fire in the lounge (looks like a coal fire) was great to pop on after some great walks with the dog in Bembridge and surrounding coastal areas. The Owners Sally and Anthony kindly met us on arrival and gave us a guided tour of the property, they also pointed out some wonderful walks all of which were possible from the house, this meant no need for four wheels. Also local advice about lure fishing off the rocks past the Bembridge Lifeboat station at low tide, right behind the large hotel i managed a nice plump Bass!!!!!!!!!!! We loved our stay here and will be back as it was our first time on the isle of wight, I think we struck gold and even though we fully explored the whole island we fell in love with Bembridge, from the lovely seafood at both the floating seafood cafe restaurant (no dogs inside but allowed on the deck) in the harbour, and the Baywatch Cafe which was dog friendly inside and out. I highly recommend the Crab Thermidor.

About the location

ST HELENS

Bembridge 2 miles; Ryde 5 miles.

The village of St Helens lies in a coastal position on high ground, on the eastern side of the Isle of Wight, between Bembridge and Seaview. St Helens is a traditional English village, with the village green at the centre of village life, providing cricket and football pitches, a children’s playground and superb views right across Bembridge Harbour and Culver Down. The village also offers superb restaurants, pub, newsagent, Post Office and grocery store. A short walk takes you to The Duver, an NT area of shingle and sand, and once the site of a Royal links golf course. The beach here is very family friendly, with sand and shingle, perfect for making sandcastles and collecting seashells as well as crabbing off the Bembridge Harbour Causeway. There is the popular Baywatch Café, with all the amenities you need for the perfect day at the beach, and stunning views of the Solent and St Helens Fort. The fort was built to protect Portsmouth from a French invasion between 1867 and 1880, and at the lowest tide of the summer, there is a mass walk of up to 2000 people from the beach out to the fort and back again, with driftwood fires and barbecues.
