Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The owners of the cottage are very welcoming and make sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. The view from the terrace of the cottage is beautiful, looking towards Carrisbrooke Castle but also the lovely cottage garden. Sept 2012.
  2. Excellent friendly and very helpful hosts. A lovely property with superb views and a great central location very well placed for visiting all places on the island. Aug 2012.
  3. Apricot tree was small but very comfortable with a lovely garden & views of Carisbrooke Castle. The owners, Diana & Michael, who lived next door, were very friendly & welcoming and had provided everything to make our stay at Apricot Tree as comfortable as possible. The "cream tea" that was provided on our arrival was very good; as were other things such as bottled water & tissues in the bedroom; liquid soap in the bathroom; kitchen cleaning items including washing-up liquid & rubber gloves.Simple things really but just showed how much Diana & Michael wanted to make us feel welcome & comfortable. It was the best Cottage that we have ever stayed in through your company. June 2012.
  4. Lovely cottage, beautifully decorated. Care and thought had gone into all the little "extras" which were really appreciated. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and had thoughtfully left us a super cream tea (scones in the freezer in case it wasn’t wanted straight away). The cottage is very centrally located with a superb view of Carisbrooke Castle. We’ve already booked for next year! June 2012.
  5. The cottage was in a perfect location and faultless, the hosts were excellent. It was clean, comfortable and cosy, the views were stunning from the cottage, although we didnt get any use of the garden due to the weather it was very well maintained and looked like a lovely spot in the summer to enjoy the views. it will be our first choice of accommodation when we holiday in the Isle of Wight again. April 2012.
  6. Rather snug. Wonderful view of Carisbrooke Castle, friendly and helpful owners next door. April 2012.
  7. The central location of this property was ideal for exploring the island. A charming little cottage for the three of us with amazing views of Carisbrooke Castle. The property owners were very welcoming and their extra hospitality and touches definitely enhanced the quality of our delightful stay. March 2012.
  8. Great location, very well equipped, warm and cosy. Oct 2011.
  9. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Apricot Tree. The cottage was perfect for our little family and the owners were extremely welcoming and accomodating of any requirements we had. Views of Carisbrooke Castle were fantastic. We hope to visit again soon. Would highly recommend! Aug 2011.
  10. Location of cottage is ideal for exploring the whole of the island, & is located in a quiet residential area of Carisbrooke close to Newport. Cottage is best described as compact but nicely decorated with everything you need, however kitchen is particularly small. Decked patio has lovely views to Carisbrooke castle. Cottage owners live next door & are nice & helpful. Aug 2011.
  11. The cottage is excellently located for touring the island and is situated with lovely views of Carrisbrooke castle. The cottage is quite small but was very clean and comfortable and suited our requirements very nicely. We toured the island by bike and the owners (who live next door) cleared a space in their shed to store our bikes, which was nice - thoroughly recommended. July 2011.

  13. Cottage is well presented - small but cosy & comfortable & the views are spectacular. May 2011.
  14. This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. I really don’t think it could be bettered. The owners have been very attentive to detail and we were delighted by the number of things supplied. There was even a bottle of wine - it was my husband’s birthday on the day we arrived - as well as a cream tea waiting for us. It is small, but we knew that. The view of Carrisbrooke castle from the cottage is lovely and it is very private at the back. I think it would be very difficult to better this property and we have recommended it to family members, something we would not do lightly. Linda Brightwell. May 2011.
  15. Convenient location. Very well equipped. Very sloping site may prove a challenge for those less mobile. Aug 2010.
  16. Lovely views of the castle, good outside area for relaxing in. July 2010.
  17. The location was great, very clean cottage, very helpful owners next door. July 2010.
  18. Decorated to high standard. Loved attention to detail. Spotlessly clean. Everything in good condition - tablecloth looked brand new. Beautiful presentation even towels folded and tied with ribbon. Highlight was view of castle from lounge and lovely garden with decking and patio furniture. June 2010.
  19. The property was really clean and fresh, anything you might want was provided and if not the owners would be only to happy to sort things out for you. May 2010.
  20. The cottage was exactly what we wanted, location, cleanliness, etc. The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Jan 2010.
