Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The accommodation was excellent, in fact it was so much like being at home, decorated for Christmas, comfortable, well equipped to the point that everything had been supplied even down to dishwasher/washing tablets,kitchen foil and cling film. The Christmas hamper was a lovely bonus as was the milk left for us in the fridge. I would definitely book again the next time we are on the Island. Thank you for making our Christmas. Dec 2012.
  2. This property was given a "Gold Award" for 2011 and we feel that it is richly deserved again. We have never had such a clean & well equipped property. The en-suite bathroom for the master bedroom and the shower room for the twin bedded room (although unused by us)are lovely. Having to park in a communal car park (parking at the property for loading/unloading is allowed) took a little getting used to but it did make for a lovely, peaceful environment. Willow Cottage is in a good place - at the apex of the "diamond" of the I.O.W. - for visiting other parts of this beautiful and friendly island but be aware that for much of your touring it is necessary to go via Newport which is much busier than we remembered!!! If you have a dog you will find many dog-friendly pubs and the cafe by the car park at Yaverland (Sandown)also is welcoming to them - as well as serving good/keenly priced food. Sept 2012.
  3. Without a doubt, this was the most well-appointed and furnished cottage we have ever stayed in. You may also wish to visit the nearby bistro for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is an easy, pleasant stroll along the riverbank to Newport. May 2012.
  4. This was our second stay at Willow Cottage with our Belgian Shepherd dog (this time for a full week) and we are already hoping to manage a third! This time around both en-suite bathrooms had been upgraded which was a lovely surprise and we really appreciated the changes the owners have made. Being our second visit we were able to settle in straight away rather than try to find our bearings so we managed to tour more of the island during the day and relax in the cottage during the evenings, it is a lovely house with everything you need for your stay - the kitchen is extremely well equipped (I can honestly say it had everything we needed and we did put it to the test) and as the weather was unfortunately a little challenging we spent most nights cooking lovely meals and drinking wine (the hardship!). I managed to walk from the cottage to Osborne house but I’d suggest you just catch a bus from the main road otherwise you’ll look a little bedraggled as I did when you finally arrive, although I must say they do a smashing Victoria sponge in the cafe so that was my reward! I forgot my scarf when I left the cottage but the owner was a true gem and very, very kindly tracked it down for me and posted it back. So for me, it is a 10 out of 10 for the whole package. April 2012.
  5. The property was to a high standard and the Christmas hamper was a very and welcome gesture. Centrally located, well equipped with everything you would need, would highly recommend. Dec 2011.
  6. Very pleasantly surprised - the cottage is beautiful and even better than the pictures on the website suggest. We felt right at home there and so did our Belgian Shepherd dog. The kitchen is well kitted out and it was spotless throughout. Loved the personal touch - a pint of milk in the fridge and some yummy biscuits left for us, made us feel very welcome indeed. Would love to stay again. Sept 2011.
  7. Willow Cottage is beautiful and very well equipped, and just a minutes walk to the harbour where there is a very nice cafe. We had a great time and will definitely be coming back. Sept 2011.
  8. One of the most enjoyable long weekends that we have ever had, and Willow Cottage thoroughly deserves its Gold Award. Nothing had been left to chance in ensuring that our stay would be most enjoyable. We were more than satisfied, as were our two sharing companions, and it was the sheer cleanliness of the place and the large comfortable beds which mostly contributed to a superb short break. We have already recommended it to others and will continue to do so. Sept 2011.
  9. This house is extremely well presented and a pleasure to stay in. The location, accommodation, and facilities were all excellent. Aug 2011.
  10. We had a lovely surprise when we arrived at the cottage - it was exactly what we wanted and spotlessly clean. Bread and milk in fridge was so much appreciated. Location perfect. The only problem we encountered was finding the cottage as there were no signposts from main road! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would love to return and will recommend to friends. Many thanks. July 2011.
  11. Home from Home. July 2011.
  12. Lovely cottage. Very clean and modern. More spacious than expected. Centrally placed to make visiting all the island very easy. July 2011.
  13. We visit IOW quite often, this is the best property we have stayed in. It was very clean and very nicely furnished. We were very comfortable and will definitely use it again. June 2011.
  14. Overall a very good quality accommodation. May 2011.
  15. Nice, tidy and in a quite location, perfect for small families and very well furbished. April 2011.
  16. Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage. Very welcoming and in good location. Liked it so much tempted to book for next year already! Very child friendly - travel cot, high chair, stair gate etc. March 2011.
  17. This was a real home from home property, from the minute we went in it was like coming home. Every need had been catered for and all facilities you could want were provided. We will definitely be staying at Willow Cottage again. Feb 2011.
