“Relaxing and great location”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We rented the Boathouse and the Airstream end of August 17 with 2 kids and grandparents. The location is fantastic,right on the water and central to Yarmouth town (250 meters down the road) which has good restaurants. Yarmouth is the quieter part of the Isle of Wight which is perfect for a relaxing holiday (much nicer than Shanklin). The Boathouse had all the amenities you need, sleeps 4, with TV, fridge, washer etc. The hot tub was perfect for the kids and adults to use and the small garden was great for the kids. The grandparents had the Airstream which was quirky but perfectly comfortable.

We would recommend staying here

“Home from home in beautiful location”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Conveniently placed to explore both Yarmouth and the whole of the Island. We were well looked after by the host and the house had everything we could want. The boys learned to play darts while we lounged in the hot tub. We were blessed with good weather but it was so homely it wouldn't have been the end of the world if we'd have been stuck indoors.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in the The boathouse, which is stunning. There was 4 adults and my 11 year old daughter. The boathouse provides everything you need, including a great hot tub with the best views. The master bedroom looks out over the river and garden.
We were very lucky with the weather, which helps. The boathouse is a short walk into the town, which has loads of pubs and places to eat.
Would recommend this place to friends, the only negative that i can say is the sofa could do with being updated

Hi Kerry thank you for the great review and glad you enjoyed The Boathouse and its stunning location and views. We will definately look into the sofa again, This has proved very difficult as we have changed it three times in as many years and thought that at last we had got it right. There must be a sofa somewhere that everyrone likes...just got to find it! thanks again for the great review, and hopefully see you in the future and bring the hot sunny weather with you please :)

“Perfect house, perfect location = perfect holiday”

River Cottage is the perfect holiday home from home - rather a home you wished you lived in all year round. The whole family came and none of us wanted to leave - we are definately booking again next year. The whole holiday was amazing - safe environment for the young grandchildren and Yarmouth with its pubs and restaurants satisfied the older generation - cannot express enough how much we enjoyed your house and facilities - thank you very much for sharing
