    Directions not accurate enough --it would help if the sign for cottages is on the side of the lane---a more comfortable setee in the lounge would be good ---otherwise excellent --great location

  • "Lovely stay with the dogs and great location for some long walks."

    Perfect for a weekend/long weekend break. Great outside space. Twin room beds are a little uncomfortable (didn’t try double) and didn’t feel clean as the sheets hadn’t been put on properly/been left on. Walls are very thin can hear every word from the other rooms.

  • "We we’re on holiday with our elderly father so this was perfect as it had a downstairs shower and bedroom so our dad was very happy."

    The cottage had everything you need the owner has definitely thought of everything and the views were stunning.. the only thing I would say is the bed upstairs has a bolster at the end of it which was not ideal for my husband who was 6ft 2 other than that it was perfect. I would definitely recommend it.

  • "The property generally quite clean, but just don't look under the sofa or corners with cobwebs."

    We met the owners and they are very nice and friendly people. The hairdryer was missing and no shaver sockets provided but the owner provided a 2pin socket adaptor and hairdryer the follow day. Kitchen utensils were adequate for our stay although a few more would be better to allow a full dishwasher load. The 2 chopping mats however were not great and not flat to use. The shower on the ground floor was really nice with good water pressure. The outdoor private patio is also very nice space which also opens up to the surround grass areas for kids to run and play.

  • "The property is set in a lovely location which is generally quiet with just a little road noise."

    It is also ideally located in terms of a supermarket/ local shops and it easy to gain access to many of the main attractions on the island, like The Needles, Yarmouth and Sandown. It is very new and well equipped. The heating system is efficient and the property stays warm for quite some time after it has gone off. The mattresses are good and firm but the pillows are too soft for my liking. I am glad I took my own. Lastly, I would suggest the owner invests in a whirly line as there are no obvious means of hanging out washing out side the property. I hope to go back to the Island in the spring and would be more than happy to use this property again.

  • "Pros: Good facilities, plus extra like Nespresso coffee machine."

    Good solid patio furniture. Although small, the living area did not feel cramped (4 adults and dog). Nice open field in front of property and was quiet. Easy check in with key box. In general well kitted out. Cons: Cleanliness, not just areas that had not been dusted for quite a while but all the kitchen/bathroom plugs and plugs holes were slimy and and unclean. The kitchen sink was discoloured and came cleaner when applying some "elbow grease". The vacuum was not good and didn't really pick up much. In general it looked like it had received a wipe over not a good clean. Stain on sheet and no pillow protectors. Issue with Wi-fi - however sorted on day. Broken shower temperature control (again had not been checked before we arrived) meant coldish shower on first morning, this was rectified the same day.

  • "Just a advice to dog owners."

    The laminate flooring is very slippery. My dog was frightened to walk on it. This necessitated a visit to Dunelm to buy some runners for the floor. Please be mindful of this whether you have a dog or are an elder.

  • "Insufficient address , off Copse Lane , needs to be included in the address, poor sat nav connection , various roads closed due to road works causing us to drive around until we spotted Norton Green."

    The gas boiler wasn't working until I saw the cleaners on the following morning of our arrival who arranged for plumber to fix it. Both the shower & bath plug wholes were blocked with hair, causing slow emptying , YUK !

  • "Overall perfect for a nice weekend away."

    Lower velux window in bathroom would be an issue for taller guests. Most door handles were lose and made us anxious about being locked in a room. Several higher level cobwebs that are missed by the cleaners. A little disappointed that the garden areas were open giving access for the dogs across other guests areas. We have an older anxious dog and an energetic puppy and so it would have been good to be able to open the French doors and allow them fresh air without fear of them running to others. A secure Low level fence around each outside area would have made a huge difference to our stay.

  • "Lovely location nice and quite."

    Everything you could need although we never cooked main meals there. Beds were comfortable and clean. Furniture was not as shown in the pictures. Rather old large sofa that was too big for the space needs a small sofa and two armchairs as it was too crowded making it hard for mobility impaired. No shower mat making it slippery in shower. Large cobweb over bed in upstairs room other than that rooms were clean and tidy. Had to wash all the utensils as they weren’t very clean.

  • "Property in great location, with lovely country park on door step to walk the dogs."

    Overall the cottage was cleaned to a reasonable standard, but could have done with a few extra cooking trays, if self catering. Also the sofa in the property advertised on Sykes website is not what is in the property. The one in the property looked very old and was extremely uncomfortable, which was a shame, as our stay would of been perfect it this was not the case.

  • "Spotlessly clean and very well decorated."

    Fully accessible for those less mobile. Some essential items not provided, eg colander, tea tray, bottle opener. Could have done with bigger bath towels, a couple of occasional tables and a bbq. Dishwasher very welcome but not enough crockery to make it worthwhile using daily.

  • "There was a lot of dust on the surfaces of kitchen units as well as on the living room furniture."

    One of us has a severe allergy of dust and it was really affecting her when we were inside the house. We had to spend most of the time outdoors. Luckily the weather was great, but if we had to spent more time inside, we may have had to find a different place to stay. Other than the dust, all was good.

    We were 4 over 70 year olds and like a bit of comfort, upstairs apart from the weird planning of the bed/bathroom door, was fine , but maybe a rug between the single beds to step out on to would help. Also seating in the living room was not good for 4 adults.

  • "The directions to the cottage are WRONG."

    On leaving Yarmouth on the A3054 travelling South you turn LEFT to Norton Green not right as is stated. This caused a lot of confusion, luckily I had a good map and was able to sort it out. The shower in the downstairs bathroom needs a tray for soap, shampoo, sponge etc. It is very difficult to shower and balance these items at the same time !!! It would have been nice to talk to someone on arrival or departure just to say "Hello and welcome" or "Goodbye and thankyou" Otherwise everything else was first class and despite the awful weather the holiday was enjoyable. It was a nice place to stay. Thankyou.

    We took photos to show it wasn't the advertised property but Sykes dismissed our complaint. It was not cleaned to an acceptable standard, had very little kitchen utensils not even a chopping board and an appalling sofa that looked about 30 years old! Cheap bedding and towels and flat uncomfortable pillows. We will not be booking any other properties through Sykes as standards have clearly dropped!

  • "We were very impressed with the holiday cottage."

    Situated in a pretty little village with Lovely views looking out over fields. The cottage had all the mod cons needed with the added extra of a coffee machine! There was plenty of room for a family of 4. Some little points we thought we’d like to mention. Would be great to have a washing line or clothes airer to hang wet cloths. The pillows on the beds were flat as pancakes - we had to buy extra to make them work! Although the cottage was clean and tidy, attention to detail would elevate this property to excellent - dead flies in the light shade in bathroom. Limescale around plug hole in bathroom. Mirrors all streaky. Lamp shades in bedrooms all croaked. Towels were too small - bath sheet better than a bath towel. Cheap bedding. An investment into bedding and towels would be a bonus. Such a shame these littles things are added to this review but first impressions really do count! All said it was a great cottage and based just where we needed to be. The points above did not spoil our holiday just a recommendation.

  • "Having had our original accommodation cancelled just a week before we were due to travel I contacted Sykes to find an alternative."

    That’s when we found this property and we felt that we’d actually found a better place! Was ideal for us having our dog with us. It’s on the end of the row and great for spending the evenings just playing ball which our dog enjoyed so much. Accommodation was clean and had everything we needed other than maybe a clothes airer for drying laundry but that didn’t spoil our stay. Just to the side of the property is one of many bridal paths in the area leading to many walks around Golden Hill which was ideal for us. As and when we visit the island again this property will be our first option! Met the owner who was also lovely and chatted most days. Would definitely recommend.

  • "The holiday cottage was not clean."

    The oven and hob were greasy, the floors had not been hoovered; and yet we were informed that we should leave it clean and exit promptly for the cleaners to come in! In addition, the pillows on all beds were cheap and offered no support. Very uncomfortable. Despite offering sleeping for 4, you would not be able to seat 4 people comfortably in the lounge area. I do not like to be critical as otherwise the cottage was well appointed and had good facilities.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay!"

    The location is absolutely stunning and the house was clean and had almost everything you could need for your stay. Being nit picky I would say that as we stayed for 8 nights it would have been helpful to have a hoover available as the house gets very dusty very quickly and we only had a dustpan and brush to keep sweep up and the utensils draw was missing a spatula so trying to make pancakes on pancake day wasn't easy but that didn't stop us enjoying our stay. We will definitely return and will highly recommend.

    There were some small niggles- there were no instructions for the heating system. The weather was turning cold and it took us a few days to work it out. There were no instructions for the washing machine or dishwasher but as we didn’t use either it was not a problem for us. There were no chopping boards or small sharp knives. Also the furniture in the house was not the same as in the advertising picture. (The settee was too big!) Having said this it did not stop us having a very enjoyable stay and would recommend it to others.

    A couple of suggestions: the house only had one knife- a bread knife. This made chopping fruit and vegetables very difficult and I would have expected better equipment than that. It would have also been good to have a hairdryer provided. Everywhere I’ve stayed for the last few years has provided one.

About the location

FRESHWATER

Yarmouth 3 miles; Cowes 16 miles; Fishbourne 16 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

Freshwater is situated at the western tip of the Isle of Wight and consists of Freshwater Village and Freshwater Bay. Freshwater village offers a good selection of small independent shops, cafes and the West Wight Sports Centre and Indoor Swimming Pool. The magnificent high chalk cliffs, rolling downs and delightful beaches at Freshwater Bay and nearby Compton Bay attract many visitors and surfers all year round. The renowned Freshwater Bay Golf Club, which overlooks the English Channel has stunning coastal sea views from most tees and offers a superb day out for golfers of all abilities, whilst the area is a haven for birdwatchers, cyclists and walkers with many wonderful walks to be enjoyed not only on West Wight but across the entire Isle of Wight criss-crossing over a much varied island landscape. Locally, Afton Down (the location of the famous 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival), and Tennyson Down are the most popular walks. At the foot of Tennyson Down is the Dimbola Museum and Photographic Galleries. The Needles Pleasure Park at Alum Bay with its coloured sand cliffs and chairlift to the beach is just south west of Freshwater, plus a little further afield on the north coast of the Isle of Wight is the premier yachting centre of Cowes. Osborne House (the former home of Queen Victoria) is located at East Cowes. The nearby Farringford Hotel on the edge of Freshwater Bay was once the home of the British Poet Laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and many notable poets, authors and painters have been attracted to the area of West Wight over the years. With the seaside town of Yarmouth close by with its busy harbour and pier, shops, inns, eateries and impressive Tudor castle, this is an ideal base for an enjoyable holiday.
