"A delightful relaxing two weeks stay in this beautiful cottage! The weather was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island and returning home each evening for a homecooked meal or a trip out to a local restaurant. The kitchen is well equipped and a lovely place to prepare meals and potter. Many thanks for the cake and welcome."

"Lovely 2 week stay. Comfortable home, quiet and within easy reach of the loveliest parts of the island. We enjoyed some cycling, walking and beaches. Most of all we are all going home a lot more relaxed, than when we got here. Time to chill and appreciate what you have. We enjoyed sharing the photo album of the construction work on the Cottage - a labour of love."

"A wonderful week on the Isle of Wight. Have enjoyed exploring the island and would recommend Colwell Bay which is a short walk from the Cottage, to The Hut, for a meal and Farringford House Tour. Definitely hope to come back."

Freshwater Bay to Compton Bay across the gold course at Compton Downs. Down to Brook to Yarmouth and back. Thank you for your help and all the information and welcome cake! Would love to come back in the winter and sit by the cosy fire. With thanks."

"Very enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage. Very well equipped and comfortable. We were blessed with excellent weather and enjoyed the beaches at Totland and Colwell Bay, easy walking distance of the cottage. Superb walk from cottage to Freshwater Bay and to the Needles and back. The walk from Mottistone to Long Stone has lovely views. We would recommend the Waterside Restaurant/Pub Totland Bay and Red Lion Pub, Freshwater offering great food."

"Our second stay in this gorgeous cottage and just as superb as the first visit! We enjoyed the numerous walks around Totland, Tennyson Downs and around the area. Your cottage is so clean, warm and cosy and well equipped. We have also enjoyed the log fire. Would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to visit the islands. The garden looks superb! Going home very relaxed."
Nash Family - April 2018

"A lovely stay in a beautiful cottage. We had a lovely time exploring the island and would recommend catching the waves at Compton Bay, crab pasties at Steephill Cove nr Ventnor and a walk to the Old Battery to see The Needles and a wander around Yarmouth.  "
Sarah, Dan and friends, Nottingham and Derby - April 2018

"We have had a lovely relaxing stay. The cottage is so cosy and the beds are so comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting in the gorgeous garden too. We  found some great places to eat in walking distance of the cottage and right over looking the sea, both excellent. Evening walks along the beach have been great, you get fantastic sunsets this side of the island. Thank you very much for a lovely stay."
Anni and Guests  -  June 2016

"We have enjoyed a lovely week on the IOW and made better by perfect weather. The comfort of the cottage and the quiet, peaceful setting gave us the ideal base for our first visit to the island. Like others,  we prefer 'West Wight' to the relative rush of the East. Our favourite of the week was the lovely gardens at Mottistone. Another recommended favourite by visitors is the Red Lion pub,  Freshwater, excellent meal. We will certainly be back."
Rosemary and David - June 2016
