My partner & I are frequent travellers, staying at many boutique hotels and have yet to beat the Summer House for the perfect summer hideaway, great value, set in an idyllic location, and the perfect place to relax. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, ( I couldnt find a fleck of dust anywhere and trust me I looked?!!!) and clearly a...

I don't know what the previous reviewers were talking about re dust etc, my partner and I have just spent 4 glorious days in the summer house and could not find a speck of dust anywhere! Tina was a superb host who ensured that we had everything we needed on arrival and through the time we spent there, nothing was...

First the good stuff. The Summer House is situated at the end of the garden and is in a lovely quiet location with great views of the surrounding hills. There is a caravan park situated immediately behind the Summer House but we did not experience any noise. The Summer House has decking in front of it which is great for...

I'm very proud of them and gain great joy from my guests having a lovely time, most always come back :-)). It seems there is just no pleasing some...

I stayed at Ivar Cottage (the cottage itself, not the summer house) with three fellow sailors on a touring event in small boats in mid-July. Tina was very welcoming - sadly we had to decline the welcome drink she offered, due to being late for an event dinner - and the cottage was excellent. Comfortable, well equipped with a large...

Thanks Tina for making our Honeymoon so special. We really enjoyed our stay at Ivar cottage Summer House. There were beautiful flowers on our arrival and a wonderful send off with a seafood platter as a wedding present. The accommodation was like a home from home with lots of personal touches including wi-fi and dvd's. We ate out at Cafe...

We stayed at the Summer House at the beginning of July when we attended a family wedding on the Isle of Wight after a busy week travelling through Cornwall and the New Forest so we were ready for a rest. It was our first time on the island and finding the Summer House at Ivar Cottage was a real bonus....

We loved this place. Very peaceful and serene. The staff was excellent and made sure that even the smallest details were taken care of. The room was very comfortable and the bed was heavenly. Also the dressed crab was OUTSTANDING!! I can't say enough good things about this place. No doubt we will be coming back.

Both the grounds and the accommodation itself were everything you could hope for. Definitely a cut above the rest in terms of space, privacy and facilities. We particularly loved having the living room and sofas to be able to relax on at the end of a long day! The grounds leading up to the summerhouse were beautiful, and in turn...

The reviews cannot lie. This place is superb. By way of background my father was from the Isle of Wight but moved to the Midlands during the 2nd World War. Granny remained living on the Island until the early 1970s. As a result I spent most of my holidays until my early teens visiting the Island and I have been...
