  • "The location was absolutely lovely."

    The cottage was both stylish and cozy and immaculately clean. It provided a much-needed escape for our daughter and grand-daughters, who all loved it and also enjoyed improving their piano playing skills (mainly chopsticks!) and also playing table tennis and darts in the outside space. I would absolutely recommend this beautiful cottage to everyone and i will definitely be booking it again.

  • "We stayed in this superb holiday let in August ‘22."

    What can I say? We were NOT disappointed! Everything was as you would expect, extremely well equipped with almost everything you can imagine you would need and it was spotlessly clean. We had a very warm welcome and the owners were on hand for help and advice about the area and the ample facilities. Ann was so friendly and we had the privilege of meeting her grandchildren who played nicely with our granddaughter which was an added bonus. Despite being there during a heatwave, the house was extremely comfortable and remained cool downstairs, where we slept, (although fitfully because of the twanging bed mattress) It was considerably hotter upstairs though but there is nothing you can do about that although a fan would have helped. If you are ‘touristing’ during your stay we can highly recommend the Steam Train and Birds of Prey centre which is within walking distance. We had a super day there with far more to do than we were expecting and they had lots of shady areas to escape the heat. The loos were spotless too! We would also highly recommend The White Hart, a mile away, for dinner! It was excellent! We would suggest you book though as it is VERY popular. All in all, we had a terrific week and would thoroughly recommend. If we want to return to the Isle of White in the future we will certainly be back! Thank you!

    Hi Elaine Many thanks for your kind’s great when people enjoy their stay. We very much enjoyed having you as guests too - makes a big difference. When you return you can look forward to a new mattress! Peter & Ann Property Owner

  • "The Coach House is situated in a quiet village with good access to the island if you have transport."

    Our experience was a mixed bag of good and not so good. The on-site owners are very friendly. The grounds are spacious and attract a variety of wildlife. Take some peanuts for the feeders just outside the kitchen window and you will see red squirrels, great spotted and green woodpeckers, great and blue tits, jays and other garden birds. The living area and kitchen are spacious and comfortable and well equipped. The toilets use mascerators and feed into a septic tank. A power cut caused a problem with the mascerator for a short time. The downstairs walk in shower is not well designed and the owners provide towels to roll up to prevent leaks onto the bathroom floor. Access to the upstairs is via an ornate metal spiral staircase - 12 steps. It is certainly not suitable for young children, the infirm or those with mobility difficulties. The low eaves in the roof are not ideal for moving around in the bedrooms and bathroom. The most serious issue however is the lack of ventilation and heat retention upstairs. Our weather was warm but not unusually so. The room temperature was unbearable, particularly in the twin room. We decided to purchase a room fan which helped at night. These should be provided by the owners as a matter of urgency. The property is not the cleanest we have stayed in but overall our holiday was excellent and there are many good places to eat nearby.

  • "Perfect for the IoW steam railway and set in a quiet courtyard with plenty of open space nearby."

    Peter has a duck pond where the kids can feed them and also keeps the birds well fed. We were fortunate enough to see a red squirrel and woodpecker during our stay. The accommodation was perfect for our family stay and we made good use of the nearby walks. Robin Hill is 5 minutes down the road and the Sloop Inn about a 40 minute walk avoiding roads. We were only staying for a week but will be back because we couldn't fit everything in. There are some great places to places to eat including DaVinci in Newport that was really accommodating with the kids, the DairyMans Daughter at Arreton Barns, The BlueBells at Bridlesford for breakfast (make sure you book) and some of the best fish and chips from Tony's in Ryde. Avoid The Fishbourne though, it was by far the worst meal and service we have had in a long time that is exorbitantly priced for the quality we experienced on our visit where we had to return two of the main courses and were made to feel very unwelcome bringing children without so much as an apology for poor quality food. Overall our holiday was great and the games room was a real boon for us to unwind after our days out.

  • "The Coach House was a fantastic property and we had a wonderful stay on the Isle of Wight."

    The property is located in a great location; it's easy to get to almost anywhere on the island in just a short period of time, but it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle to provide a quiet space that is perfect for families. The coach house itself is clean and spacious and very well laid out for families, with two bathrooms and plenty of space. We particularly liked the outdoor barn with games area as this kept our kids entertained, even in wet weather - they were also very entertained by the resident cat, nearby horses and chickens. The owners could not have been more accommodating or welcoming, bringing us over freshly grown tomatoes from their garden and eggs freshly laid by their hens. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is pretty much perfect but the only room for improvement is the bed in the downstairs bedroom could be a more quieter and more comfortable, and also the TV often failed to pick up a signal and so we only had iPlayer. That said, I'm sure many people go on holiday to get away from such distractions (but just a note if you have kids and need to distract them!). From the cottage there are lots of nice walks and it's easy to drive a short distance to Ryde, Sandown or other places on the coast. We didn't our dog this time, but it's a very pet friendly property (although you'd probably want to keep a dog on the lead in the farm itself due to the cat/chickens!). We will definitely be returning here when we next return to the Isle of Wight. We had a wonderful stay and the location is great. We had friends staying at the same time who paid more than three times as much as we did, but our accommodation was better!
