“Great holiday home”
Reviewed 4 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Very comfortable, clean home, with everything you could possibly need available for your stay. The beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with equipment. The garden is also very nicely set out. Loved the welcome basket with cava, orange juice, milk, crisps, sweets and mini jams. There is loads of information on the Isle of Wight attractions available, and books, DVDs and games for quiet times. Would definitely recommend it for your holiday home. Very good quick, polite contact from the owner with any questions we asked answered promptly and in detail.

The house itself is situated in a long terraced street. Cowes is quite a busy area, but you are quite near to the excellent Duke of York pub down the street and the shops, pubs and restaurants are a very short walk away, so is the sea and the chain link ferry. There are plenty of places to choose to eat out for your meals and there is also a small Sainsburys in the town centre for supplies. Cowes is quite a good base to stay to explore that side of the Island.

“Perfect accomodation for all ages”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in Wight Cottage for a long weekend. We couldn't find fault with anything, clean, comfortable and an ideal location to sample the delights of the whole Island.

“All it promised to be”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Everything it promised on the website. Notable improvements to the garden area since the website was written.
Everything was spotless, tidy, kitchen very well equipped and all facilities of the highest standard.
Good location in Cowes, as quiet and close to shops & restaurants. Parking bay was essential, as there is little or no street parking.
Great thought has gone into making this an enjoyable experience for whoever stays there and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

“Fantastic and very comfortable house”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in October 2013

I stayed here for a few days in October with my wife and 14 month old son. My sister and her 11 year old son also joined us. We had a fantastic time in this beautiful, clean and well laid out property. It was very well situated being only 5 minutes away from the centre of West Cowes and a short drive away to lots of other amenities. Everything we asked for was provided including a travel cot and highchair. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind enough to allow us to make use of the garden but I'm sure it would make a great space for a BBQ in the summer! Would definitely return and would urge others to visit.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My wife and I stayed for a week with our two kids and my mother and there was plenty of room for us all without getting under each others feet. The house was well equipped with games and tv, wifi etc to keep the kids happy and the kitchen was also well equipped. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms made the stay relaxing. Within walking distance is West Cowes with some great restaurants but also good pub grub and ales and a couple of supermarkets and lovely shops.

We used the house as a base to see the island and we went almost everywhere from the Needles (good value day out!) to Blackgang Chine (for the kids) to shopping in Sandown (and the pier amusements!). On a rainy day we visited Planet Ice in Ryde for some ice skating (friendly staff) and the Garlic Farm was interesting.

Altogether a very enjoyable week and we hope to return, thank you.
