    “The first thing to greet us on the stairs was a dead plant!”

    ! Mr Brady's introduction was brief and when I asked if the fridge had been mended or replaced,(as seen in the reviews) he said people want too much these days, like a zip wire to the beach!!! ( Not the best of welcomes).We have been to many Sykes accommodation and often have a great welcome + scones and cream, wine eof the fridge had no door! It still doesn't. Nor is there a shelf over the crisper drawer. ...

    ! Mr Brady's introduction was brief and when I asked if the fridge had been mended or replaced,(as seen in the reviews) he said people want too much these days, like a zip wire to the beach!!! ( Not the best of welcomes).We have been to many Sykes accommodation and often have a great welcome + scones and cream, wine eof the fridge had no door! It still doesn't. Nor is there a shelf over the crisper drawer. The other comment by several visitors was the kitchen hot tap "dribbled" and took a long time to fill the bowl. Still the same.The hot tap in the bathroom "swivels" and needs tightening. Also comments re the veluxs having cobwebs they have not been cleaned. Out of 7 velux blinds only 2 could be pull down, the others were broken. A previous visitor suggested black out blinds in the bedrooms, we were awake about 6am because of the light. The microwave, toaster and kettle had stickers to say they were checked in July 2019, it is obvious they have not been tested recently. How often does a Skyes representatives visit to check, as the photos on your website are out of date. Reading the comments in the visitors book and web reviews that the property is tired. the lockdowns would have been a perfect time to refresh it. Or is it an attitude of the landlord that he "can't be bothered"? I think he may be relying on the beautiful location, the beach and easy reach for many lovely attractions to get visitors. At the price charged we expect the accommodation to be top quality as previous experiences. We did enjoy our week, but the comments above frustrated us.

    Many thanks for your feedback. The fridge has now been replaced and all of the issues raised have now been rectified. - Sykes owner relations

About the location

YARMOUTH

Newport 12 miles; Ryde 18 miles.

The attractive seaside town of Yarmouth is the oldest town on the Isle of Wight, and its busy harbour is a haven for all kinds of watercraft, with the terminal used for regular mainland ferry crossings to Lymington. Yarmouth’s narrow streets are home to an attractive array of shops and inns, whilst a visit to Henry VIII’s castle is not to be missed. There's great cycling (and a cycle hire shop) and walking to be had along the coastal path. Why not take an energetic stroll at the nearby Tennyson Down and Headon Warren. Sandhard beach is 15 minutes' walk away, with Colwell Bay with its sandy beach and amenities for the family 7 minutes away by car. Yarmouth's pier and sailing club jetty is another good spot for crabbing. Four miles away is Compton Bay, famous for dinosaur remains; head there at low tide and see if you can find the two enormous three-toed feet. West Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Yarmouth is an ideal base from which to explore this wonderful island.
