Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The Chicken Shed is without question a credit to the owners Vi and Richard, who have provided a special holiday home for a perfect base from which to enjoy the IOW. June 2012.
  2. Exceeded expectations. June 2012.
  3. The Chicken Shed lacked absolutely nothing. Everything was clean and tidy. Owners were available if you needed them but we were left to enjoy the accommodation with no interference. Great seafood pub was just a short walk away. Beach and great little cafe were also a short distance. All in all, a great place to stay. May 2012.
  4. This was the best self catering that we have ever had, it will be hard for anything else to come up to this standard. May 2012.
  5. The Chicken Shed is an outstanding property and is very well-appointed. The owners are a lovely couple who go out of their way to look after you. We have already booked for our third visit which will be in 2013 as the ’Shed’ is booked already for the other time we wanted in 2012. I have absolutely no qualms about recommending the property. April 2012.
  6. The property is Tops in every aspect. The heating which we were dubious about was more than we could need. *****+ in all respects. The Welcome pack was generous and excellent too. May 2012.
  7. The Chicken Shed was a very comfortable property where everything was provided to a high standard. Anything you could think of that you might need in self catering accommodation was provided and more. We had a lovely week. March 2012.
  8. The owners have thought of everything! The Chicken Shed has a warm, modern and comfortable feel to it and the fresh flowers and welcome pack were a wonderful surprise. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and looking forward to returning to what feels like a second home. Thank you. March 2012.
  9. The Chicken Shed is a fabulous place to stay. It’s like a home from home and the owners are very friendly. I would not hesitate recommending The Chicken Shed to anyone. Feb 2012.
  10. The owners are extremely hospitable and have thought about everything someone might find useful in the property. They are helpful and friendly but definitely not intrusive. Feb 2012.
  11. We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Chicken Shed. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in high standard accommodation. Everything you would look for and more. Oct 2011.
  12. Very friendly couple. Went out of their way to make us welcome. Oct 2011.
  13. The Chicken Shed was actually better than described in the brochure. The owners were wonderful. The Chicken Shed was probably better appointed than our own kitchen / diner / house. The two of us could happily live there! I have no complaints at all!! And... we have booked for April 2012! Sept 2011.
  14. The Chicken Shed was wonderful. The owners have spared nothing with furnishing and fittings. A real little gem. Sept 2011.
  15. The Chicken Shed was 5* accommodation. The hosts were very pleasant and friendly, and willing to help with any queries we had. The welcome basket was not expected but very much appreciated. We will return again next year for two weeks as one week was not long enough. Would recommend this property to friends and family. June 2011.
  16. The Chicken Shed is perfect for a relaxing break. March 2011.
  17. I have sent a letter with my comments. The property was more than we expected. The welcome pack was excellent and the owners were very helpful. May 2011.
  18. We booked this property last minute (48 Hours notice) in mid march, and were extremely pleased with our choice. Everything about this property exudes quality, from the welcome pack consisiting of Milk, Butter, Bread, Eggs, Marmalade, and a victoria sponge cake even the WI couldnt fault, to the lovely 6 foot bed. There is good walikng around the area from the door, we walked the coast path to Sandown and back about 10 mile return, plus there was plenty of other places to go. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding anniversary and received a box of chocolates and a card from the owners which was very kind. All in all we couldnt find fault with the property really, not that we were looking for it, but the bottom line is really that if you leave the chicken shed with a complaint, you really dont have enough stress and worry in your life to start with! All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would not hesitiate to stay again. March 2011.
