  • "The Cabin was a real holiday find."

    It was obvious a considerable amount of thought had gone into the accomodation and facilities, and the welcome pack was an added bonus. We had all we needed, and more, for our stay, and the owners were very welcoming and helpful.

    We are pleased that we were able to provide you with everything you needed for a pleasant stay on the Isle of Wight. Property Owner

  • "I can highly recommend this place."

    Easy to find and I was pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable the cabin was. All the basic supplies you need are provided like condiment, foil, clingfilm etc. Spacious lounge/kitten. The bed was very comfortable. Plenty of cupboard space. Shower is great, powerful and hot. The owners are lovely and made me feel very welcome. Perfect place to stay and location is central to most of the attractions on the isle of Wight. Definitely one to consider. I myself would definitely stay here again.

    Thank you for your feedback, Tony. It's always nice to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay in The Cabin. Property Owner

    They couldn't have been more helpful. The property and facilities were excellent. The very generous 'welcome pack' was a lovely surprise, the contents very well thought out for us cyclists. The bike storage was also excellent beign very secure and clean.

  • "I was very happy staying in 'The Cabin'."

    It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything I needed. I enjoyed seeing chickens and rabbits from the window and hearing bird song all around too. Lisa and Rob were kind, friendly and helpful but not intrusive. As I was holidaying on my own it was especially nice to see friendly people when I got back each day. It was extremely convenient to have a bus stop right at the end of the drive and although I mostly used my car, when I did catch the bus it was an excellent service.

    We are happy that you were able to enjoy the Isle of Wight from your base in The Cabin. Property Owner

  • "What an amazing property!"

    The pictures of the cabin do not do it justice, it is absolutely gorgeous and such a relaxing place to stay. Its modern whilst also feeling cosy. I couldn't even begin to find a fault, the owners have thought of everything and were so kind and polite whilst also leaving us be to enjoy our time away. Thank you ever so much.

    Thank you for such positive feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Cabin. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable and convenient."

    Every need of visitors had been anticipated. Access for guest with limited mobility was an issue due to steps and uphill climb through the orchard, but we managed.

    Thank you for your kind words. May we apologise once again that you were not specifically informed of the steps and the slope to The Cabin although they can be seen in the photos. We have now asked Sykes to include a note in their summary making this clear to future guests. Property Owner
