    We had a lovely stay at this cottage. It was ideally placed for what we wanted and we were welcomed very nicely by the owners. The cottage had really thick old walls and therefore was very cozy. It had all the amenities that we needed and more besides. The shower was great with a few different settings, and the running hot water in the sink was piping hot. The woodburner was extremely efficient, better than ours at home and the timber supplied was not broken pallets but well seasoned logs which were great. We hope to keep in touch with the owners. We found them to be very welcoming without being intrusive and were always helpful should we have had any queries. The pub (half mile away) was very warm and welcoming also. All told, this is a very quiet, peaceful place to stay and we would be delighted to stay there again. Thank you to the Goldsmiths for a great stay with you. The Scanlons

    Fab stay, has everthing and more you need for a break away. The owners live next door and are very friendly and helpful. The heating went wrong and they had someone come straight away to fix it. Area is quiet with a pub in walking distance down a country road. Central to all parts of the island, but would suggest that you need a car. Bedrooms are large and comfortable, my dog absolutely loved the garden area, secure and well kept. A bottle of wine was there to welcome us which was lovely sat around the log fire. Would definately stay again if visiting the Isle of Wight.

    Firstly the good points...... Nice friendly owner living next door. The cottage has a great quiet and peaceful countryside location. No noise whatsoever-great!! Good sized rooms and great for up to 4 people. Quite comfortable large beds a bonus. Good sized fully secured garden a plus for our small dog. The cottage has all the necessary amenities inside it. Good off street parking And good wifi thank you! However.... Cleanliness is a major issue here which is why we would not return On arrival found the stainless steel kitchen sink to be brown stained with remnants of last persons food around the plughole. Had to spend time to clean it to use. The bathroom was another major problem with the sink not clean with grime around it and taps not clean The shower unit was awful. A plastic mat was on the floor that when moved has hair and dirt stuck around it and the whole enclosure despite a good clean was not of a standard to us which we didn't . When cleaning he water wouldn't go away which was due to long hairs blocking the drain. The brown limescale all around the shower unit was long term non cleaning The house did need a good clean throughout and if properly cleaned we would love to return

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner- All bathroom fittings were brand new for this season with the exception of the shower and its enclosure. We had always planned to upgrade the shower and its fittings over this winter and this will go ahead. As far as the rest of the house is concerned it is fully steam cleaned between each occupancy. We were surprised by the criticism since nearly everybody so far has been extremely complimentary.

    Although of the beaten track, the cottage is located ideally for visiting the island but car. The village pub just a short walk away provides reasonable food and is friendly. The owners made us extremely welcome and the cottage had just about everything you need for a self carpeting holiday. If you have a dog then the garden is ideal as it is totally enclosed. The only thing missing from my point of view was a deck chair.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Two reclining chairs for use in the garden have now been provided.

    Lovely cottage, pictures on the website does not show how lovely it really is. The cottage was dusty but after a we gave it a quick Hoover it was fine. The owner had purchased new child safety items for our 18 month old. The cottage was well equipped. It is located in a little village with a pub at the end of the road. Nearest shop is a 5 minute drive away. Lovely which I recommend everyone to stay at.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We always open windows when cleaning between guests to air the property. On this changeover one of the surrounding fields was being ploughed and as fast as we were dusting the field dust was coming back in through the open windows. Thank you for making us aware of this problem which will not happen again.
