Lovely location with beautiful beach and walks nearby. Good shops in the village. The house is large, feels private and has a dog/ children secure garden. The garden is mature and attractive with fruit trees. Some updating needed which would really make the house more comfortable.

A delightful property in excellent condition well situated in Bembridge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Bell July 2023
This was our second time staying at Orchard House and it was lovely as ever. In a perfect location, conveniently located for local shops and a short stroll down to the beautiful beach at Bembridge. The property is spacious, with plenty of living space and the open plan kitchen/dining room was perfect for our large family group. The children were spoilt for choice in terms of games equipment both inside and outside and the property is very well-equipped overall in terms of facilities, cooking equipment and a barbeque.

So good that we are immediately booking again for next year!
Mrs Addington June 2023
A lovely house in a fantastic location for both the village and further afield . The garden is even more amazing than the pictures and loved by humans and our miniature poodle. ( we couldn’t find any holes in the perimeter fence but one morning a local dog appeared on the lawn and must have got in through a gap.) We found the house to be well equipped and comfortable are only real complaint was very soft pillows and thick duvets but we solved that easily buying top sheets and pillows. The village can supply most needs, fantastic bakers , vegetable shop and well stocked Co-op. Tesco will deliver any other needs. We booked the cottage at the last minute but are eager to return next year as we really enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Porter April 2023
The house is large, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The garden is lovely, the living room opens up into the garden. Fantastic in the summer.
The house was fully equipped everything you could need. The shops, pubs and fish and chip shop was minutes away. Bembridge is is a lovely place to stay not far from the other towns. We come to the Isle of Wight every Easter, this is are favourite place to stay and would love to return next year.
Mrs Fuller October 2022

Mrs James July 2022
This is a fantastic house, so much space and lots of games, toys and books. The garden is great size for dogs and children and just a stone's throw from the village. Definite hidden gem.
Mrs Kaplonek June 2022
Great location and the garden is lovely.
Mrs Cullen May 2022
This is a lovely family home with plenty of room to either socialise together or have some private space if needed. Really well equipped kitchen and dining area, where we spent lots of time. The children had all their toys in one family room and the adults had space in the other. Local facilities are brilliant and really no need to leave the village if you don’t want to drive anywhere. We would definitely return.
Mrs Noble April 2022

Mr Stroude August 2020
We had a wonderful stay with our family in this spacious house. It had a very homely feel and was very well equipped even with games for the children. The garden was lovely and safe for the grandchildren and dog. It is in an ideal location with very good shops in Bembridge with an exceptional fishmonger and bakery and an easy walk to the beach. A super place for a lovely holiday.

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. We all loved particularly the great kitchen.
The garden was beautiful too. The house had a great location in Bembridge village cost shops pubs and cafes. And lovely walk to the beach. Thank you for relaxing holiday .
Mrs Lyons October 2019
We ranged in age from 2 years old to 75 years old and enjoyed the Bembridge local area (lifeboat station was fun for our 5 year old) and going further afield was easy.
A lovely house, spacious and well equipped.....and the owner has good taste in paintings and paperback books!
Mrs Woollard September 2019
This could be a fabulous property if the little details were attended to. Refill feathers in sofa cushions. A good deep clean would make such a difference. New shower head in bathroom. Perfect location, lovely garden. Dreadful bedroom cupboards need attention - you can't hang clothes in them. Warn people there is a gas boiler in one of the bedrooms. This is an honest account - not meant to put people off. We still enjoyed our stay here and would probably book again but for the money it doesn't compare to other similar sized properties on the Island.
