The swimming pool is a big big plus, very clean well kept with a sauna and separate tolet.
There were extras like balls floats ect. The grounds are green and lush with closed in fish pond. There are loungers outside the pool area a great sun trap there. Decking has sitting with table for 6 if needed with the use of a gas BBQ . Now the cabin was spotless , sofas, beds all very clean and well decorated. Now the cabin was small but really how long you gonna stay inside on your hols... Plenty of room for 4 though. I found that in the early morning I would take my cup of tea and sit in the pool area and read my book as it was bright and warm. The owners do live on the grounds and are the most helpful people you could come across, they want you to have a nice time so if you need for anything they will help. Our time there was amazing we relaxed swam and had BBQ most nights. We strongly recommend this place and will be returning next year.
From the moment we arrived within the cabins wonderful sylvan setting, (with vineyard nearby) we were warmly greeted by the owners, Gilly & Dave with the keys for our stay. It was immediately obvious that this couple were committed to making our stay as pleasurable and comfortable as possible.
We were delighted that the Cabin was as we expected from reading the website details and looking at all the images of the internal layout and amenities on offer. Everything needed was to hand in every room and as we walked in, the bathroom and kitchen area looked very clean indeed. In theory, a double bed as described in the details for the cabin is perfectly acceptable but if we could tweak a change anywhere, we would have preferred at least a king size bed but fully realise, due to room sizing, this may well be impractical.
The gardens surrounding the cabin were terraced and beautifully kept, as was a large, enclosed koi carp pond with seating area just beyond the pool house building.
The wonderful private pool itself was a unique selling point for us, as this is what first attracted us to book and will no doubt draw in guests /couples/families who wanted to safely chill out and relax in or by it. It was meticulously maintained on a daily basis by Dave, both early morning and late evening so as not to
disturb guests enjoyment of it.
All credit to Gilly and Dave, as during our stay, it became very clear they have achieved an awful lot in a short space of time since acquiring the property, to make it the truly special experience it is.
We are very happy to be returning later this year.

From the moment we booked the cabin we knew we were in for a great time, gilly was a great help with our inquiries and eased our minds before we travelled. On our arrival Gilly and Dave were most welcoming (we were 3 hours early) and gave us a tour of the property.
The weather made the holiday special but the cabin itself was stunning! Good sized rooms for children and adults, lovely deck to sit and enjoy the morning sun while eating breakfast and a heated pool to die for! It was so ideal going for a dip after a long day out in ryde, sandown and shanklin (which we loved for family day out).
No more than 5 mins away were local shops and supermarkets for any In house meals but just as lovely were the local pubs offering homemade delights.
Gilly and Dave were the perfect hosts and we loved every second there and really can't wait to go again in the near future.
My friends and I have just spent a week at this log cabin in Ryde. The owners,Gilly and Mike were there to greet us and made us most welcome. Initially we were quite horrified to find out we were staying at the bottom of their garden ( it's a big garden ) but our privacy was respected and they could not do enough for us.
The private indoor swimming pool was absolutely fantastic, Mike turned the heat on very early every morning it was super clean and we all came home with webbed feet!
The living space is compact, especially for four large adults, two have to sleep in bunk beds unless your agile and can get into the upper bedroom, which any children would love. The bathroom is great ,the kitchen is small but we managed with no problem. We could also walk in to Ryde for a few beers,usually got a taxi back though.
Overall we had a fantastic time and recommend this to any families wanting some quality time away.
Thank you Gilly and Mike
