i went a couple of years ago with my late friend , she read everything and soaked up the information, i enjoyed the cottage in the grounds and the history of it all . it was late August and we had a lovely day out. It was a holiday to Isle of Wight with all the excursions included and i really enjoyed the experience.

Came here as an escape ... along with a lot of people. Nice grounds and beach and the house itself was impressive ... however even though timed entrances there were still too many people inside for our liking as we slowly snaked around the corridors in single file. Maybe limit numbers further for each slot while social distancing is still needed.

Enjoyed our 4th visit here, whilst visiting the island. The thing that spoiled it for us, was the note on the bus stop saying buses for the disabled would be running on an hourly service. Decided to walk down to the beach and get the bus back. On asking a male member of staff, he replied gruffly that the buses had stopped the previous day. Was taken aback, so rude to a simple question. He then went on to say, did I know it was winter now. He needs a customer care course! Without the correct signage at bus stop, how would we know? This was Sunday 1st Nov, their last day of half term. However, all staff in the house made up for his rudeness very helpful and informative.

Firstly, I would suggest bringing a picnic (pick something up in Quarr Abbey tea room would be my suggestion) if the weather is dry (we didn't); the car park is close by and you can go in and out as it suits you. Parts were shut due to COVID restrictions but there was plenty to see. Gorgeous grounds and gardens with fabulous views over to the mainland. We had an overpriced coffee and cake in the tea room before our lovely walk down to the beach. Unfortunately the Swiss Chalet was closed but we wandered around the gardens and through the woods. Unsure whether you can plot up on the beach as such but if you can it's a great spot to swim/sit. If I lived here, I'd be a regular visitor.

We visit Osborne regularly as we live on the island and are members, today slightly ruined by unfriendly verging on rude member of staff on the gate at the membership stand and whilst walking around the grounds staff seemed to pop up out of nowhere to bombard you with questions, just seemed a bit pushy and unnecessary. Have to say the lovely staff in the shop and at the entrance to the shop made up for this, lady on the till was superb
