Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Hotel almost next door, served excellent food if you wanted a treat. Osbourne House not open in the winter. Waitrose, down the road was a Gogsend! Nov 2011.
  2. The landlord was very helpful, and any problems we had during our 4 week stay were quickly sorted. Oct 2011.
  3. The cottage was lovely, a true home from home. My one slight criticism which I passed on to the owner, was that the only missing link was an internet connection. Many people these days rely on email contact. Couldn’t fault the accommodation though, really comfortable. May 2011.
  4. Within walking distance to Cowes and Osbourne House. Oct 2010.
  5. It exceeded our expectations. Oct 2010.
  6. Beautifull location. Aug 2010.
  7. Everything was very homely. July 2010.
  8. Plenty of room, lovely roomy hall. We had a wheelchair with us and found this area extremely useful. July 2010.
  9. Very well equipped in an excellent location with a beautiful large garden. April 2010.
  10. Cottage very compfotable and well equipped. Lovely lounge with comfy sofas to retire to in the evenings. July 2009.
  11. The cottage was very comfortable with an excellent mature garden that in summer would be lovely. Our dog really enjoyed this.There is plenty of space for cleaning dirty paws before entering the kitchen. The walk to the ferry and shops is Ok going down but a rather steep climb back, if you have problems walking that is. March 2009.
  12. Excellent base for a holiday - very close to Osborne House, so that we could explore at our leisure.. well stocked and plenty of room. Aug 2009.
  13. Wonderful location. Cottage well equipped, great garden for little ones to explore. Oct 2008.
  14. This property is lovely and well positioned. Sept 2008.
