  • "A truly fabulous Holiday Cottage in a perfect tranquil location."

    It was very quiet and perfectly located in the centre of the Isle of Wight to ensure the whole Island was easy to visit and enjoy. The owners wwere great people too and very helpful. Stable Cottage was one of four units but all were superbly positioned that ensured privacy and a fabulous holiday setting. We could not think of anywhere better for us to stay in.

  • "Stable Cottage is centrally located being in Gatcombe, which makes it perfect for exploring the whole island like we did."

    Situated in a rural area it is lovely and quiet and with stunning views. Inside it is well equipped with everything we could possibly need (aside from a dishwasher but that's no big deal for us). We had a lovely stay in this spotlessly clean and comfortable cottage, started off by a warm welcome from the owner and manager Steve.

    Ideal situation for exploring the island. Loved the private courtyard for having breakfast (even in our pyjamas).

    It was very comfortable and in an ideal location — out-of-the-way and peaceful but very central for getting to all parts of the island. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

  • "A very well appointed and presented holiday cottage in a beautiful, quiet setting in an AONB."

    Cosy and comfortable with a spacious feel. Good access by car to many places of interest, but also having lovely country walks starting from the door. We spent a lovely spring week there and hope to return.

  • "We had a very nice stay at Stable Cottage, it is unbelievably quiet with great views and a private south facing patio."

    We are mountain bikers and Steve the owner kindly let us put our bikes in his lockable barn when not in use. We were able to bike from the cottage to the Tennyson trial and other bike trails as the location was very central. The cottage is well equipped and clean. We were disappointed with the Wi fi which could only be reached in the lounge and the signal was erratic and poor. We felt that the property could also benefit from an update of the main bathroom and the addition of a dishwasher to make it truly 4 * however , the many positives outweigh these points. If you would like a quiet holiday in beautiful scenery this is the cottage for you.

  • "What a fabulous cottage!"

    Exceeded all expectations. Comfortable, super clean, perfect location right in the centre of the Island and the hosts were amazing. Set on a beautiful, quiet farm with lovely views from every window. The cottage itself is very spacious, well decorated and packed with everything you’d need to make it a real home from home. Lots of little nice touches like tea bags, tea towels, a stack of DVDs, board games and more. Lovely patio area for al fresco dining. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage and can’t wait to return.

    Great for walks etc and only short drive away from anywhere else. It was clean, they were very welcoming and had great set up and lots of info as to what was open even though Covid restrictions only just opening up. There is a well provided kitchen so no need to bring kitchen sink like I always do. Would happily book again here especially if going for quiet break.

  • "Perfect in every way."

    Steve was most welcoming and helpful - we were greeted with fresh flowers and a bottle of Prosecco to complement our New Year celebrations. Fresh milk in the fridge was most thoughtful. The Christmas tree was beautiful and made Stable Cottage seem like a real home-from-home. Beds were comfortable and warm - we didn't need the extra blankets provided, even in December/January. Kitchen was well-equipped, although we mainly ate out so didn't need to make full use of all the utensils. My husband enjoyed completing one of the selection of jigsaw puzzles!

  • "Comfortable and cosy."

    Everything we needed for our week on the Isle of Wight. The only downside was a badly flickering light which meant we were unable to use the lights in the kitchen. Steve was helpful and friendly, told us he’d been waiting for the electrician for a month!

  • "Fantastic family week in this lovely property, such a wonderful clean and homely place to relax in after a day exploring the island."

    my only recommendation would be better mattress and bedding. as they are very hard, and the bedding a little thin. The owner is on hand to help with any problems, our Tv stopped working on the first evening, by morning we had a replacement (even bigger) so resolved very fast. we would recommend this place to anyone.

    I particularly enjoyed see the nesting swallows going in and out of the adjacent farm buildings, and also large numbers of swifts flying in the area. It was a shame the DVD player was not already connected up for the wet nights.

  • "The Stables is highly recommended for anyone seeking a comfortable holiday base in a peaceful location."

    It ticked all the boxes for us and proved to be an ideal location to explore the beautiful Isle of Wight. The farm in which it is located is exceptionally clean and tidy. Even the country lanes leading up to the farm have been recently resurfaced (no potholes!). Our only criticism is of the directions to the property given by Sykes. There are far simpler directions to the property from Yarmouth, Cowes or Ryde than those provided.
