Canute Cottages
Reviewed 23 March 2009

We have stayed at Canute Cottages for the past 8 years, and have no hesitation in recommending it unreservedly. It is beautifully situated, impeccably run by Diana, and boasts admirable green credentials. I know that most guests return year after year – some twice a year. I have not stayed at the campsite, but that also appears to be well-appointed, and I know it also has a large group of very loyal regulars. I can only suppose that the previous reviewer must be referring to a different establishment.

Reviewed 6 March 2009

We have actually stayed at Canute Cottages about 5 or 6 times and quite honestly I think the person that wrote the previous review has the wrong end of the stick which is such a shame. Am very sorry they had such an awful experience but would like to make clear the owner is (a) not a man and is (b) certainly the most lovely, helpful and accommodating person you could meet! My personal experience is that Canute Cottages themselves are smashing. They're well equipped & spotless, all mod cons, very well maintained indeed and nicely furnished, including beautiful paintings. We particularly liked how easy it was to recycle everything and that we could walk to the one of the best pubs in the world in about 15 minutes. The cottages are set in such a tranquil off the beaten track place you can't help but instantly feel relaxed and be amazed by the scenery, the mass of stars at night as there's no light polution and the unbelievable sunsets with a view across to the Isle of Wight. Just last Sunday I saw, against the backdrop of a sunset by the sea, curlews, egrits and herons plus a complete mass of snowdrops and that was just in the winter! And the owner Diana is both on hand should you need her and unobtrusive. Diana is also the campsite owner so somewhere along the way the previous reviewer has recieved incorrect info. Would I recommend these cottages & campsite? Oh Yes! My cousins are staying there in April!

Plenty of play-space for children and a huge play barn with skittles, ping-pong, table football, toddler toys and more for those wet days.
