Miss Browne September 2023
We have really enjoyed our week at The New House. The house is very spacious, well equipped and has a lovely big garden for our dog to play in. Godshill is a lovely village and a great location to explore the island. We recommend both The Taveners and The Griffin for eating out.
Mr Sanders August 2023
We loved our stay at The New House. It was wonderfully clean and so well equipped. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. The house is in a perfect location, right in the centre of the amazingly pretty village of Godshill. There are two pubs on the doorstep - The Taveners and The Griffen. Both looked lovely although we didn't visit either due to fussy eaters in our family! The table tennis room and the piano in the sunroom were big hits with our family. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Mrs Bravo August 2023
no, its our secret!!!!
Mrs Noble August 2023
2nd visit to The New House with 3 generations, we love it, it has everything and more we could need and is in a great location. I’m sure we’ll be back again!
Mrs Cox August 2023
Lovely, spacious house with beautiful enclosed garden. Excellent location in the lovely village of Godshill with many different attractions within very easy reach. Highly recommended.
Mr Ellidge July 2023
The New House is a wonderful property to use as a base for your trip to the Isle of Wight. Situated directly on the high street of picturesque Godshill, it has numerous pubs and restaurants on the doorstep. When the sun is shining, the barbecue and large garden are perfect places to spend quality family time. If the weather is less kind, the tennis table is a great distraction!
Mrs Woolcombe July 2023
A stunning much loved home in a picture book village surrounded by thatched cottages. So much space for everyone, a beautiful garden, games room and so many books and board games! The kitchen is the best equipped kitchen you’ll find! Perfect for staying in or going out, supermarkets and beaches all a short drive away. Log burner and so many comfy couches and bathrooms. Can’t recommend it enough - definitely be back if we return to the lovely Isle of Wight.
Mrs Fish June 2023
Fabulous cottage in a lovely village location. It's fairly central for getting out and about and there is a bus stop right outside. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. There is plently of room and lots to entertain multi generational family groups. The Taverners pub serves fantastic quality food and The Old Smithy serves a lovely breakfast.
Mrs Nutt May 2023
This was a great property for our family group, with plenty of room for everyone. The snug with the piano proved very popular as well as the table tennis room. The kitchen had every conceivable piece of equipment you could wish for. The garden is lovely with several seating areas and a large lawn for the children to play football and cricket. This was the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed on and would recommend it. Opposite is a popular bakery and the Taverners does a great Sunday roast.
Mrs Hollobone May 2023
The location was great. Garden was lovely and secure. House was lovely and well appointed. Would highly recommend this holiday home. Thank you
Mrs Bravo August 2022

Mrs Shreeve July 2022
Wonderful property, very well equipped, spacious house and lovely garden. Great location, easy access to beaches, lovely walks from Godshill and in surrounding area..
Mrs Lowe June 2022
We stayed at The New House to celebrate my 60th birthday which was delayed 2 years due to Covid. It was well worth the wait, the house was brilliant. We needed a house that would accommodate 6 adults and 2 babies so needed plenty of room and a good location which we certainly got. The garden was lovely and well equipped as was the house. Would highly recommend staying there.
Mr Hussan September 2021
This place was beyond expectation. Anything you name it, its there. Never stayed in a cottage with so much facilities and stuffs in it.
Mrs Moloney September 2021
Fantastic location. We'll equipped family home. Would definitely stay again.
Mrs Harper August 2021
My daughter already wrote a review for The New House in the visitors book - lovely house - good location - lots of things to do for the family - good to have separate rooms to go to when needing some chill time. All in all a great house for all the family situated in a nice village. We have been coming to the island for the last ten years or so and this house has definitely been the best for all the family in regards to being near to shops & for the amount of rooms. Good base to get to other parts of island as well - we will definitely be back!
Mrs Bravo August 2021
No - we don't want encourage others, we will never get a booking!!!!!!

Mrs Josey September 2019
Overall this was a great house in the perfect location. I would recommend it to others looking to stay in the area. Would probably be quite cold in the winter as many of the windows had blown.

Mr Hammett September 2019
Comfortable and good sized holiday home in central village location and easy walking to pubs and local shops. Lovely garden with ample seating and a joy to see the local red squirrels.
Property is set on the main road through the village which families with young children should be mindful of. There was some road noise and it can be difficult to pull out from the driveway at busy times.
mr cutler September 2019
Large, comfortable and well equiped house. Beds are super comfy. Location right in the centre of Godshill, massive garden with seating.
Mr Sandham June 2019
The cottage is lovely and spacious with its large garden, its needing a little more upkeep maintenance wise , back gate fixing ,patio area re- pointing and new outside lights installing. Being in the heart of Godsill is great although you do have to take your life into your own hands with there being no pavements to walk on just the narrow road edge.

We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and we're so pleased that you enjoyed the cottage and its garden. We'll ask the housekeeping team to take a look at the points you have highlighted - thanks for bringing them to our attention. We do try to be as honest and accurate as we can with our descriptions, and we'll ask our Island team to see if the rural location (no pavements) could be clearer. Tressa, Customer Support
