Great little cottage. Clean and well appointed. Fantastic location for walks and Shanklin beach front 5-10 min drive. Dogs loved it. Oven works fine now!! Thank you for our comfortable and restorative stay!

This is an absolutely brilliant cottage to stay in the Isle of Wight. The garden is secure for dogs and the house is very clean. We have stayed here three times now with two Children and two Dogs and had a great time. Being close to Shanklin is very convenient and there is a supermarket close by. We even saw a red squirrel in the Garden, beautiful area. My only negative is the oven is very old and takes four times the amount of time to cook anything. The owner kindly sent someone promptly out to fix it but the parts aren't available anymore. A little bit of a challenge with hungry kids especially when we used a self catering cottage so we could cook. There is a BBQ provided so wouldn't be a problem in the summer.
