I had to visit the Isle of Wight under very sad circumstances. I expected to spend most of my time in my room...However, this was not to be. Within an hour of arriving, I had actually forgotten about my situation and felt as though I was among lifelong friends. The hosts were made for this industry! They’re extremely warm, friendly, kind, talkative and very funny, I was delighted to spend time getting to know them. They’re also very knowledgeable and provided lots of useful tips for getting the most out of my stay.
The house itself is very spacious, well-lit, clean and extremely comfortable, providing all the essentials and lots of extras. The garden is stunning, and the wild poppies were a particular highlight. The house is also conveniently located by the beach and boasts the most breathtaking views.
The breakfast was delicious and the portion sizes were very generous. I was also treated to a lovely cheese board.
I had not been to the Isle of Wight before, but thanks to the delightful hospitality of the hosts, I will definitely be visiting again!

This has been our fifth time here and we still enjoy it just as much. The breakfast is always delicious and the views are wonderful. We watched a moonrise over the sea which was spectacular. As always, we will be back again soon.

Had a nice stay here.

Hosts were friendly and talkative, room was clean, well sized and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed having the buzzing town of Sandown nearby, although it is not so close that the noise keeps you awake at night. Breakfast was great - plentiful and tasty and we also liked the decoration of the breakfast room. Excellent value for money.

Only slight downside was the mattresses were a bit hard and the hairdryer cut out after a short period of use and I'm not sure why.

Still, such issues were few and far between so overall a very positive and enjoyable stay and to be recommended.

10 lovely days with Linda and Stephen at Haytor lodge, warm friendly family welcome.
Great room with view out over cliff top and garden, watched the thunder storm most of night- wow. Lovely choice for breakfast, Stephen cooks a lovely fresh breakfast for each person as they order with Linda waiting on.
Plenty of local knowledge and helpful advice. Nice garden to sit in if you had enough of travelling.
Cliff walks in evenings towards Sandown or Shanklin relaxing way to end day

Room tip: ask for cliff top view
