A spacious comfortable cottage in a nice location. Well placed for walks out to Alum Bay, Colwell Bay and Tennyson Down without needing to use the car, and only a short drive to the beach at Compton Bay.

Lovely spacious cottage, perfect for our family of 5. Large rooms, clean and light . Located in a very quiet area within walking distance of the beach and shop. We’ve had a lovely break and would recommend !

July 2019

Both families had a wonderful holiday, the cottage was like a home from home and in a beautiful and peaceful location really close to great beaches and fun activities for little ones. We can’t wait to come back!

Excellent well equipped cottage. Dog friendly, washer dryer large utility room, cot and high chair, 15 mins walk to the beach. Only faults were that some of the windows were seized shut so we were unable to open them. This was particularly uncomfortable during the recent hot weather. However, overall will definitely return

Thanks for reviewing Ashmead Cottage - it's really great to hear you had such wonderful time overall and hopefully enjoyed many trips to the beach during your holiday. We're really sorry that some of the windows were seized shut - we've forwarded this to our colleagues on the island to address with the maintenance team. Bryony, Customer Support

This was our second stay at the cottage, which we enjoyed just as much as the first. A beautiful, spacious, comfortable, very well equipped cottage in a great location.

We had a problem working out the central heating and got a bit cold. Clearer instructions would be useful. That said it is a really nice home in an amazing location . A real home from home ... second stay here .. loved it
