A sweet little cottage, situated on a non working farm. Loads of grounds to run around in, two pigs to visit plus geese, chickens and very friendly cats. About 5 mins from Yarmouth and within walking distance from llama farm. We had a few problems when we arrived with items missing and dirty linen, but these were sorted by the owners and island team. Some maintenance is needed, particularly in the bathroom but with a days work could all be sorted. Beds comfy, bedrooms small and hard to open doors fully as beds in the way but didn't worry us. Living area lovely and light, comfortable chairs and kitchen was fine for us. Courtyard could do with a little tlc and strange only two chairs when cottage sleeps four - but it is a suntrap. All in all loved our short stay there and would be happy to return - with some mosquito repellent.

We had a wonderful Oct half term stay at Orchard cottage despite the weather being dreadful! The property was cosy and had all the amenities required. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the farm animals (which we were allowed to pet) created an added bonus. We would highly recommend this good value for money accommodation to families with young to primary school aged children (and older if animal lovers)

We were absolutely delighted with Orchard Cottage Wellow. The location was great, very peaceful and relaxing. The owners were lovely, very kind and helpful, but unobtrusive. The accommodation was modern inside but still very characterful, very clean and comfortable. I would recommend This property without hesitation.

Found several hair accessories and socks under the beds. Beds are really uncomfortable and the toilet doesn’t always flush properly. If you’re bringing a dog the grounds however, are excellent with regards to the agility course and several public paths all in close distance.

Thanks so much for your review; we're delighted that the property worked well with your dogs, but sorry to see you found a few maintenance issues. There should not have been anything left under beds, so we can only apologise and assure you we've raised this with the housekeepers. It can be tricky to find a mattress that suits everyone, but we're sorry that you found these uncomfortable and we've let the owners know. Bryony, Customer Support

The smaller cottage main bedroom is very small - so much so that it has only one small wardrobe and you cannot open the door fully because the bed is in the way. We were lucky with the weather, but if you had a rainy day and kids the owners could probably do with clearing up the large barn so that the table tennis, trampoline and snooker table could be used maybe ?
Despite this, we enjoyed our stayed very much. NB: the two pigs love it if you give them a good scratch in the mornings !

A perfect retreat for a couple with children and a dog.Very peaceful and relaxing but still well situated for the coast and other facilities. Highly recommended.

Best holiday I have had in a while, the owners went above and beyond in their service to accommodate myself and my family to ensure our stay was enjoyable. I would recommend this place highly and would love to stay again!

Excellent location many walks close by, with buses passing which we used and walked back to base, very peaceful dog friendly place. Cottage interior decorated to a high standard, kitchen well equiped.

The cottages are perfect for your dog or dogs, lovely grounds and an agility field/barn, the gardens are safe and you can relax letting your dogs out. Everywhere we went the dogs were welcome in the IoW.

Poor housekeeping and the whole cottage needs updating. The washer/dryer is actually only a washer with nowhere to hang washing to dry. There is a big hole in the corner of the bath panel, and the bathroom is carpeted which gets soaked when having a shower. The games room is now a dumping ground for the owners and not accessible to guests. There are no instructions for any of the appliances.

We were really sorry to hear there were some oversights in the housekeeping and that the washer/drier had been replaced with a standard washing machine. I know our Island team have been in touch directly - thanks so much for letting us know. Tanya, Customer Support
- UPDATE April 2109 *Our Island team have been working with the owners to upgrade these lovely properties. All three have had new kitchens, new dining furniture, new flooring in the living-room and dining areas, new patio furniture and a complete redecoration throughout. We've updated the website with new photos and we're sure that returning guests and new visitors alike will be delighted with the result. Classic Cottages *

Perhaps dog exercising area which we found very useful and very friendly owners on site.
