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.

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.

no, its our secret!!!!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The location was great. Garden was lovely and secure. House was lovely and well appointed. Would highly recommend this holiday home. Thank you

no, we want to be able to come regularly, if we tell people it will get booked up!!

A super base for a family holiday. Plenty of space, inside and out with lots to occupy both adults and children.

Wonderful property, very well equipped, spacious house and lovely garden. Great location, easy access to beaches, lovely walks from Godshill and in surrounding area..

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.

This place was beyond expectation. Anything you name it, its there. Never stayed in a cottage with so much facilities and stuffs in it.

Fantastic location. We'll equipped family home. Would definitely stay again.

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!

No - we don't want encourage others, we will never get a booking!!!!!!

We had such an amazing week in The New House - it’s a lovely cottage with the most wonderful garden! We hope to return again!

This house was home from home. Very comfortable and well equipped with a delightful garden and village. We would definitely return another year.

A brilliant venue for more than one family as there is lots of space to be together or apart as you wish. High level of equipment.

Large property well positioned on the island in a beautiful popular village setting. The house is very comfortable and well set out with a beautiful large garden at the rear.

no, we don't want people to know about this super secret!!!!!!

A truly wonderful home. Perfect for large family groups as a base to explore the island! We cant wait to come back!

A lovely welcoming home well situated for exploring the island Some great walks from the door with wonderful views We loved returning after rain sodden days Thank you

Excellent location, very well appointed, spacious and beautifully furnished! A pleasure to stay there!

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.

Thanks so much for reviewing The New House - it's great to hear you enjoyed the wonderful location of this lovely property. Thanks for letting us know about some of the windows - we'll certainly forward this to our colleagues on the island for their attention. Bryony, Customer

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.

Large, comfortable and well equiped house. Beds are super comfy. Location right in the centre of Godshill, massive garden with seating.

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

Beautiful property in an excellent location. A true Home from Home - everything we could have wished for.

Fantastic location, superb house and beautiful garden!

Lovely well equipped house in a good location which met the needs of three generations of our family. A very enjoyable stay.
