We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Squirrel Nutkins Cabin and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for good value, comfortable accommodation on the island.

The hosts Shelly and Paul are both very friendly and helpful and keep the cabin and the pool beautifully clean. We were lucky enough to have some great weather and made use of the swimming pool on a couple of occasions. We were also fortunate to see a red squirrel on our first day there - wonderful to see one so close up!

We are already looking forward to our next holiday there!

“A wonderful place to get away from it all on the Isle of Wight”

We had a wonderful week at Squirrel Nutkin's Cabin. The cabin had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. It was spotlessly clean & in a very pleasant spot with surrounding woodland. The gardens were beautiful & the pool was an added bonus, especially as the weather was so hot during our stay. It was great to have our own little courtyard garden where we enjoyed a glass of wine or two whilst red squirrel watching. The cabin is ideally situated to explore the island & is very close to East Cowes where we boarded our ferry to the mainland. The owners Shelly & Paul were very friendly & made us feel really welcome. They also gave us some very good recommendations on places to visit & eat. We will definitely be booking another stay at Squirrel Nutkin's Cabin in the near future.

Met by Shelly & Paul with the keys and all facilities explained.
Good size for two people.
The cabin was spotlessly clean.
Nothing was too much trouble.
Unfortunately the weather did not allow us to make use of the swimming pool.
Excellent location (just up the road from Osborn House & East Cowes) and within easy reach of all island attractions.
Many good local pubs & restaurants for eating out.
If you are lucky you will hear the red squirrels running across the roof to get to the nut feeders.
Superb value for money.
Would not hesitate to recommend and would definitely revisit in the future.
