  • Mr Snow

    “Freezing cold shower the first night, went round to report the problem the following day and was told that this is due to an air lock in the hose and has happened in the past.”

    If this has been a problem in the past, surely this should be fixed so guests don’t have to endure cold showers?

    If this has been a problem in the past, surely this should be fixed so guests don’t have to endure cold showers? Front door not weatherproof, we had really bad weather the weekend we stayed, the rain made its way under the door making the floor very slippery. There could do with being a doormat cut in for the first part of the floor as the doormat provided was inadequate and got pushed out the way when you opened the door, this lead to a very wet muddy entrance to the house.

The property

The Retreat forms part of a cosy stone cottage, on the grounds of the 18th century Appuldurcombe House, on the outskirts of Wroxall on the Isle of Wight.

Set in a beautifully tranquil location, this bolt hole can be enjoyed equally as a romantic getaway or as a homely base for a holiday of outdoor adventure and exploration.

Enter the property and be welcomed by its well-equipped, black and white galley kitchen which also plays host to a delightful dining table set for two.

Head into the peaceful sitting room where you can unwind after a day of touring the area; a stunning French door lights the room up as well as offering soothing views of the surrounding woodland.

A couple of steps up brings you to the pristine tiled shower room, the perfect spot to get yourself ready for a night in the local Star Inn pub.

Take the stairs and arrive at the wonderfully bright and airy double bedroom, the open layout and fresh features give it a real sense of homeliness.

Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this Wroxall cottage with a morning stroll through the 300 acres of woodland that surrounds you.

The wonderful seaside resort of Ventnor comes within a five-minute drive and offers a wide range of amenities, as well as a golf course and a glorious sandy beach.

This pretty village sits just two miles from the south coast of the Isle of Wight, Wroxall itself along with the surrounding area offers something to suit every taste. In the village there is a well-respected gastropub, The Star Inn, as well as a convenience store. Here you can also find a Donkey Sanctuary to experience something different. Hidden away in acres of stunning woodland is the Appuldurcombe House, a historical landmark well worth a look. The seaside resort of Ventnor is just a short drive away and offers everything that you could ask for from a range of fabulous amenities, stunning botanical gardens and a sandy beach for you to enjoy.
