Our Stay at Clematis Cottage was prefect. The house has its own garden with lots outside toys and even its own playhouse. The house itself is very well equipped and has all things covered and the welcome pack and bottle of Bubbly was a lovely touch. The rooms are all very comfy and the kids even slept pass 6.30 which is a bonus on holiday.
The location is lovely too up a quiet private road but only 5-10 min walk in to the main high street with lots of little shops, cafes and Pubs. The Chine is only 10mins down the road, which is lovely if you go in the evening as its all lit up. Also along the road is the steps to the beach ( can be hard work with little ones as there is a lots to go down)
The location was fantastic to get to all the major Attractions on the island and is great base. We are hoping to return
This is the third time I have stayed at these properties with my family. They are of an excellent standard. They are clean, beautifully located and of a very high standard. I have no problems in highly recommending them.
Our extended family (3 year-old, parents and grandparents) stayed in Honeysuckle Cottage. We found it comfortable, really well equipped and perfectly located for both the beach at Shanklin and the village. The large shared garden with loads of play equipment was a real hit.
On the days when the sun shone, the sandy beach was perfect for small children and it was an easy stroll to get there past Shanklin Chine. Particular hits for us included the pretty Steephill Cove close to Ventnor, the IOW Steam Railway and the model village at Godshill. All easily accessible from our base.
We would definitely recommend this property and would love to return.
This was our first visit to the Isle of Wight with our nearly 3 year-old daughter. We couldn't have asked for a better base from which to explore the island. The house is large, clean and has excellent facilities for the whole family. The garden was a real surprise and has numerous wendy houses, climbing frames and toys etc to keep the children entertained. The location is ideal as only a short drive from most of the attractions and only a 5 minute walk into Shanklin Old Village from where you can access the beach via Shanklin Chine. We would definitely stay here again if and when we next visit the Isle of Wight.
Peaceful setting near to beach and the house had everything one could hope for., even a dishwasher.The slow cooker was huge and I was sorry to come back to my own home which paled in comparison.
The gardener came whilst we were there and his plantings were perfect.
The fresh flowers on the table and the Champagne chilling in the fridge blew me away.
Our second stay at Clematis Cottage, and I can honestly say that it is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Very clean, well equipped and maintained. Perfect base for our family holiday. Highly recommend.
We had a lovely Easter holiday in Jasmine Cottage. The house is decorated and maintained to a very high standard and is clean and bright.
It is very well equipped with every kitchen utensil you can think of and then some!
Little touches such as fresh flowers and sparkling wine and welcome pack make a great first impression and make you feel at home straight away.
The garden is beautiful and enormous- there is plenty of room for children to play and the decking area is very pleasant as a private place to sit and enjoy the morning coffee or evening glass of wine.
The house is very well sound proofed and we didn't hear noises from surrounding properties, from outside or even from other rooms within the house which was important for us as we had a 10 month old baby.
The location of the cottage is great too- just a few minutes pleasant walk to the centre of Shanklin and a few minutes further to the beach.
All in all a fantastic holiday in a beautiful holiday cottage that accommodated 3 generations of the family perfectly.
