    This was an excellent venue for a holiday. It's well placed for any part of the Isle whether for walking, cycling or driving. The cottage has the best view we've ever had (it's of Carisbrooke Castle) in the UK in any let over the past decade or so. It's very comfortable. The narrow kitchen and remotely located fridge would be a minor inconvenience if one planned to pass a holiday cooking!

    Breakfast on the patio with a lovely view of Carrisbroke Castle . Owners extremely helpful. If you wish to explore the Island by bus this is easily done by a short walk and a ride into Newport Bus Station. The good weather contributed to a memorable walking holiday.

    The Apricot tree is in a perfect place to explore the whole island, it is clean, tidy, very well equipped and has the benefit of having owners who live next door and are warm welcoming and extremely helpful. I will have no hesitation in booking to stay here again.

    This is the second time we have stayed in this lovely cottage. Although small, it had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday with our 8 year old grandson. The garden and the view are fantastic, and the owners are very helpful and friendly.
