Lovely cottage set in an ideal location for exploring the Isle of Wight. Lots of space, well equipped kitchen and decorated to a very high standard. We stayed with our 2 1/2 year old and 7 month old children and John & Louise had thoughtfully left us all the equipment we needed as well as a huge amount of great toys. Great to be able to see the badgers so close up, it was a highlight of the day for my son. Would definitely recommend.
This was our fourth visit to Camellia Cottage and it certainly won't be the last!
I can't say enugh good things about it. The decor and equipment is superb; everything is so well-maintained and I challenge anyone to find a kitchen gadget that they don't already supply. John and Louise take great pride in keeping the house immaculate and their care and attention to detail really does show.
We stayed with grandparents and 9 and 11 year-old boys, and the house suits all of us equally. It's so peaceful, the garden is fantastic for exploring and playing games, and we all love the nightly visits by the badgers. One was so confident it sat waiting by the open french windows like a little dog for it's nightly feast of bread and jam.
The Buddle Inn (2 minutes walk) is a great old pub serving delicious food and with very friendly staff.
The house is 5 mins from Blackgang Chine and of course it's not far to go to many other interesting places.
A big thank you to John and Louise for another very relaxing stay. They are such lovely people and do everything they can to make you feel welcome - I've never seen a welcome pack like it, and John delivered the same again halfway through our break!
We have just returned from the cottage. What a great place and the owners John and Louise have thought of everything, you name it they have it covered. The place is spotless and really well maintained. We will definitely be recommending this and we are going to go again.
Beautiful, quiet location but close enough to a lovely pub and village. The house is wonderfully equipped with everything that you could possibly need. Our children loved the treats on arrival as did we - a lovely touch, thank you Louise and John. We stayed for two weeks and the children were occupied happily throughout our time with the vast amount of toys in and outside the property. Once the children were in bed we were able to watch the wildlife in the garden whilst sitting in exceedingly comfortable chairs! We were very impressed with all that was on offer in the cottage and could not have asked for nicer owners who were very friendly and welcoming.
Camelia Cottage is a wonderful home in a beautiful location with something for everyone. The owners are extremely helpful and kind and do everything they can to make your stay as happy as possible. They really have thought of everything, whether it is something for the kids, games, TV, videos or just some time out to relax and unwind. We spent a beautiful few days retreating from the world, relaxing in the beautiful surroundings. Their lovely secluded garden is a real treat, the flowers are stunning and wildlife is friendly - badgers, birds and red squirrels come and say hello. With wonderful walks and beautiful scenery right on the doorstep, it really is a place to let go of your worries and enjoy, we couldn't have asked for anything more. It really is a special place.
