Would recommend this cottage. Great base to enjoy IOW. We as a family of 6 had an amazing time. Beach close to walk the dogs and great costal walks

August 2020

Beautiful cottage, very comfortable and stunning location but disappointed by the cleanliness of the kitchen.

July 2020

A priceless location. Loved equally by my parents, children and dog!

July 2020

This location is perfect. We love the walk to the beach, where we hunt for fossils. We have stayed here a few times now and we feel that this is the best location on the island! The house is a bit on the old-side can do with modernising, but regardless we love it there.

September 2019

this is our second stay at 6 Coastguard cottages and we would love to go back again

July 2019

We had such a fabulous stay at this property. The rooms are large enough and extremely light due to the large windows and sunny location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back again!!! The only thing we really missed here were sun-loungers in the garden!

A wonderful week at a wonderful cottage! So close to the beach, we walked there a few times. Very well equipped property, with plenty of spaces. Fabulous sunsets!

We always have a lovely time in any Classic cottage but this one has helped us make great family memories for two years now, on our favourite part of the island! Thank you

October 2018

Lovely location and views, great size garden and driveway (though be aware not secure if you have dogs) spacious house but furnishings more shabby than chic and cleanliness could be better

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts although we were sorry to see that you felt the cleanliness could have been improved. We'll raise this with the housekeeping team, and we'll inspect all the funiture to see where upgrades could be made. Tanya, Customer Support

Fantastic location with views across a field to the sea. Beautiful sunsets over the white cliffs. A quick walk to an amazing sandy beach littered with fossil remains of dinosaurs.

A delightful cottage in an enviable position. Very well equipped and our small problem with a lack of window key was resolved quickly and very efficiently. We will definitely book again.
