  • "A warm, cosy and comfortable cottage to return to at the end of the day."

    The hosts, Babs and Kitty made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed meeting Lotte and Molly. The cottage has everything needed and beautifully presented. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.

  • "Excellent accommodation and location."

    Both Kathy and I thought that Barbara and Kathy were perfect hosts (and Lotte was a bonus !).

    You were both so easy to host, with such lovely friendly attitudes. A real joy to have such a long chat on your departure was our bonus. Lotte misses her games with you. Thank you for staying and pleased to know that you found a spot which fit the bill. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Cottage was lovely - a great blend of character with good facilities/equipment. Owners very welcoming. Cottage was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped. Location is good - pubs and shops are a good few miles away but there are lovely walks on the doorstep (Godshill, Appuldurcombe, Downs etc.) and no part of the island is more than 30mins drive. Would recommend.

    It really was a pleasure having you both here to enjoy our Island. Sorry about the weather but we know you made the most of it! We were amazed at how immaculate you left the cottage, a real bonus for our cleaner. Thank you for being so considerate. Property Owner

    It was lovely to be able to sit out in the garden each evening and our boys loved playing with Lotte the golden retriever, who is much missed now we are home again! Thank you for a wonderful week.

    Our pleasure Jill to have contributed to a happy holiday. Such a kind gesture to let us know. Lotte missed the boys too so hope they have now adapted! She sends a big lick for them. Property Owner

  • "This was our first visit to the Island for many years."

    Our hosts were very friendly and informative about places to visit. They keep Kitty’s Loft and the gardens in excellent condition and in these strange times, do everything to keep themselves and guests safe. Restrictions placed on them to make Kittys Loft Covid safe has meant they have had to remove some items from the accommodation but this was expected and did not interfere with our stay. Kittys Loft is set in a quiet area with easy access to all the major towns and places of interest. Moving around the Island we always felt Covid safe and everywhere we went for meals, everybody adhered to safe distancing and we never felt uncomfortable at any time. Even the weather was good to us

  • "We had awful weather for our October half term holiday but Kity's Loft was warm and comfortable."

    The radiators had thermostats on them so we were able to set the temperature we wanted in each room, keeping the bedrooms cooler and the living room warmer. The bedrooms were a very good size and the beds were extremely comfortable. There wasn't anything we needed that we didn't find in the kitchen. It was well stocked with cutlery and other essentials. We didn't have the right weather to make use of the garden but I think it would be a lovely place to stay in the summer. I would recommend this property.

  • "In the listing there's no picture of the bathroom, may be worth adding this as quite small with only shower cubicle, no bath."

    The bathroom is also on the ground floor so could be an issue for night time visits! We also felt another hand towel could be provided as only one small one for us both, plus only one loo roll! Probably being picky here but more & larger towels provided in other accommodation and always more loo roll & toiletries. Otherwise a lovely cottage in beautiful setting, well placed for visiting all of the island.

    Owner Response: 'The details regarding the accommodation clearly state that there is a ground floor shower room, with toilet and hand basin. This fact should have been taken into account before booking the cottage if a bath was considered necessary. The provision of a toilet roll is a complimentary item, as the cottage is 'self catering', and individuals have preferences for particular brands.The provision of toiletries is not something we provide as we feel that is a personal requirement depending on the individual's taste. We do however, provide a branded hand wash dispenser for convenience An extra hand towel could have been made available, had it been requested, as we are close by.' Many thanks Barbara Williams Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very warm, well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    The garden sitting area was very pretty and the weather was so brilliant (early September) we were able to eat our breakfast outside in the sunshine every morning and it was very quite and peaceful, as although the cottage is situated on a road there is very little traffic; all we could hear was the soft bleating of sheep in a nearby field and birdsong. The property is situated on the south of the island which is supposed to have its own micro-climate being warmer and sunnier than the rest of of the island and this seemed definitely to be the case, and the tropical gardens at Ventnor, which are well worth a visit, are a testimony to this. There is a very nice pub in Godshill called 'The Taverners', about 10 minutes drive from the cottage, which is very popular and the food is excellent , using all local produce, but you do need to book early as it is very popular. We also visited the 'Spyglass' in Ventnor which is right on the edge of the sea and sells delicious crab sandwiches; the crab is locally sourced from the island's fishermen. There is plenty of seating outside and inside it is distinctly quirky with loads of character. Another nice pub with a view is 'The Folly' on the Medina River which is very close to Osborne House,. Do visit Osborne House and gardens, it is an amazing place and in recent years Queen Victoria's private beach has been opened up to the public and you can bathe there, not fully clothed as Queen Victoria did (check out her bathing machine), or just relax on a deckchair with an ice-cream. We have been on the Isle of Wight for day trips, but not for a full week and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we would definitely like to go again and stay at 'Kitty's Loft' and if we are lucky Barbara and Kitty might have a 'cream tea' ready for our arrival as last time!

The property

Kitty's loft was announced as a winner of the 2018 Rose Award from VisitEngland.

This pretty and well-presented cottage adjoins the owner's home and is nestled perfectly at the foot of St Catherine's Down within a quiet hamlet of privately-owned barn conversions.

Thoughtfully appointed throughout, this Godshill cottage provides a cosy and welcoming haven for families and friends alike who wish to experience the peace and tranquillity of this setting as well as the sheer beauty that the surrounding countryside has to offer.

After a restful night's sleep in one of the two pretty bedrooms, guests are treated to stunning panoramic views of Stenbury Down when opening the bedroom curtains at this picturesque Godshill cottage.

Downstairs, there is a well-equipped fitted kitchen and a cosy sitting room with a French door leading out to the beautifully-maintained garden, a lovely setting for enjoying breakfast before venturing out to explore all that this area has to offer.

The lawned garden at this Godshill cottage is also the ideal spot for relaxing whilst enjoying the sounds of the migrating birds that visit on a daily basis.

The delightful and picturesque village of Godshill offers many excellent attractions, from the model village and the Isle of Wight Natural History Centre, to the Godshill Cider Company and The Old Smithy, now a lovely tea room, gift shop and boutique.

Why not discover one of the breathtaking walks Godshill has to offer, and then a sumptuous lunch in Godshill's gastro pub, The Taverners?

You can visit one of the many stunning beaches on the south of the island, or take a drive to East Cowes and discover the history surrounding the magnificent Osborne House.

This Godshill cottage is a wonderful base for experiencing the beauty and the sights that the Isle of Wight has to offer.
