The first WOW from the family said it all. You could literally live in these cottages. Large lounge with 3 piece, and dining table for 4 too. Kitchen with every kind of electrical appliance possible. Large double bedroom and even larger twin. Bathroom bigger than our home bathroom. Late check in was easy and the owners were on end of phone at all times for any problems eg battery gone in smoke detector at 8pm. Great service. Pool to ourselves at 8.30am. If you dont want a noisy clubhouse, takeaway and amusements on site this is perfect and only 20 mins from newport which was a pleasure to drive across the hills.in middle of island. Great location 5 mins walk from beach and 15 from town with 3 supermarkets and various pubs and take aways. Parking next to our own patio area with furniture to eat outside, will be great in summer.
Now the niggles, 3 in our party but you could have given us more than 3 knives 3 forks 3 plates etc. The dish washer was never full. Some doors creak. The shower sprays water on bathroom floor. That's it, and not enough to even affect a great week. We will definately return here. Is the west of island too far from attractions?? I had that concern but as the days go by the island seems to get smaller and the drive along the south coastline is breath taking. If you have read any other of my reviews you will know i like to get a "deal". Hoseasons eventually gave us 2 cottages for 60% off and we found a voucher for large discount off redfunnel ferry, who by the way are so much better than wightlink if you dont mind the extra drive to southampton. A great site and a great holiday with an amazing hot tub.
