Owners Tina and Terry Hyde are the best hosts you could hope for, being both very interesting people to talk to and providing you with a most wonderful stay. We found the accommodation unique, clean, comfortable and spacious. We wanted for nothing. The choice and quality of food was the best too. Being central, the location is great to get anywhere on the beautiful Island. just wish we were still there.

“A most relaxing and serene place to be”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I stayed with Tina and Terry between May and August this year while working in nearby offices on a short term contract. Having never worked away from home before, the atmosphere of Bank Cottage and the welcome from Tina and Terry was much appreciated. Tina and Terry are excellent hosts and the service they offer is balanced well with knowing when to be visible and when not to be. I say this as after a long day at work, I thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the evening on the sun deck reading or watching the television in the room. The accommodation is clean and welcoming and the views over the country side are wonderful. The breakfast was great and kept me going throughout the day at work, Tina would frequently heat a microwave meal for me in the evening if I chose not to go out for dinner. A most pleasurable stay in a beautiful setting.

“Fantastic service and value”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A short walk from the hospital, great WiFi and a promise of a great breakfast saw Bank Cottage selected. What a great choice! Tina was wonderful to meet and be a most helpful host. The room was stunningly appointed with great views. The bathroom was large and modern with a powerful shower. There was even a large balcony to sit on and enjoy the sun going down over the surrounding fields.
The breakfast exceeded my high expectations as did the speed of the broadband.
A wonderful find and one I am looking forward to returning to.

“Excellent B & B”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

I highly recommend staying at Banks Cottage. I have visited a number of times over the past few months Tina and Terry are extremely warm and welcoming and ensured that my stay was very pleasant. Both are lovely hosts and it was very generous of them, sharing their wealth of local knowledge whenever I needed some information. The cottage is only a short walk or drive into Newport which is very convenient. The cottage is modern and completely up to date and had all the creature comforts I could have wanted. The breakfast was served in my room which is a nice touch and was excellent. If you are looking for a place that is home from home then this is the place. The cottage is a perfect place for a quiet, comfortable, low-key and relaxing stay. What more could you want and it is great value. I look forward to my next visit.

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This B&B was so easy to find and so spacious, with plenty of parking space. And the good just got better! Inside is so well laid out, so light and airy, surrounded by beautiful fields which was so lovely breathing in the morning breeze smelling the grass and fresh air.

The decor is absolutely beautiful, I could not have done anything better. The beds were comfortable (even the pull out sofa bed), large television, comfortable dining area and plenty of space to hang clothes / put bits around / get changed / just hang out in general. And the bathroom I am very envious of - shower is heaven!

There are a LOT of lovely little touches at Bank Cottage - plenty of beautiful toiletries, bathrobe, slippers left on the stair for you, little cotton pads and buds, comfy cushions and a little side table we moved around as the sofa bed was up. You don't have to even put this up yourself - Tina and Terry had already made it all up for us before our arrival. They have a little form for each guest to complete asking what you would like for breakfast (including soya milk options, etc). And breakfast was gorgeous, so well cooked, and kept warm on the professional heated server on the shelf next to the dining table!

Overall, I couldn't recommend Bank Cottage (and their delightful and super professional hosts, Tina and Terry) highly enough. A triumph for them and a real lush treat for myself and my family.

“Beyond my expectation!”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I have been there for a weekend out of London and it has been fantastic! Tina and Terry are lovely, the place is peaceful, the room and the bathroom were brand new, spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast also was excellent.
Next time we will be in the Isle, we would love to stay there again!
