We had a lovely stay in House of Logs with friends and family to celebrate a special birthday. We dined at the Waterfront (really friendly and very nice food) and went on lots of long walks from the door. We enjoyed seeing the red squirrel in the garden in the morning. We hope to return.

The photos don’t do the house of logs justice. It’s a great place for a family holiday and easily catered for our 3 generations. Close to the beach and coastal walks. We had lovely weather which was great but the house was so warm that it would be a good place to stay in the colder months. Lovely to see the red squirrels in the garden too.

I enjoyed my stay but the accommodation needs upgrading and it's very drafty in the sitting room.

We've passed on your comments to the owners for their consideration and they'll bear them in mind when planning any future modifications to their property. Tressa, Customer support

It was an excellent stay for us and very comfortable too. Away from the crowd and very calm and quite location . Beach walk is not very far. Surroundings are very scenic and shops are close by. Backyard is always lively with red squirrels and birds. Very warm cozy and welcoming property . Would recommend this fully for any season. NANDINI KHANDIGE PETERBOROUGH

This is a great property if you enjoy watching wildlife in the garden, sitting by a cosy fire and having access to the costal path. We were a couple but could see how an extended family would enjoy a stay and children would love the bunk beds. Make sure you buy some logs on the way to the property, the Afton garden centre was really useful.

If you want to stay in something different, this is the place, you won't find anything more alpine than this. It is cosy, has ample room to sleep 8 (even if they are all adults). We had a great week, only one rainy day, but plenty to play with, read, watch, Bagatelle was used every day. The garden is full of wildlife, red squirrels, various birds (sparrowhawk), and food is provided. Great location for walking, Needles, Alum Bay, Yarmouth, Freshwater Bay to name a few, the views are spectacular. There are a variety of pubs in the area as well, the Vine in Freshwater was spot on in every way. We hope to stay again.

The quirky design of the property was very unique, the garden and outside space was good as was the parking space. The situation of the property was excellent, close to the ferry and the coastal path. good local facilities for eating and food shopping.

The stairs to the downstairs bedroom were very steep, might not be suitable for some people! The downstairs bedroom could do with more draw space for clothes.The main lounge was very dark at night even with the lights on, could do with improving. The mattress in the downstairs bedroom could do with replacing.

We had a wonderful stay at the house of logs. It had everything we needed to feel completely at home, so much so it was hard to leave. The location was amazing, especially being able to take morning runs/walks along the beach.

We had a fantastic time at the House of Logs. It was very well equipped, clean, in an excellent location, and the layout was perfect for several generations to share! We really enjoyed walking out to Alum Bay, The Needles, and Tennison Down straight from the house, and also enjoyed all the beaches nearby. Would definitely recommend.

The House of Logs has everything the perfect location with stunning views all around this beautiful island. The red squirrels came out to surprise us too! Plenty of relaxing walks & fabulous restaurants which all were top class on the doorstep which was an added bonus! The House was well equipped & very comfortable with recliner garden chairs added in too. I would say it was the House that kept giving & is perfect for family/friends get together all year round. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful House & stunning location. Trudi & the girls

This cottage is ideal for a family holiday with plenty of space and a garden for children to run around in. The location is great being a pleasant short stroll down to the beach, although the tides need checking as Totland has limited sand. There is also a lovely walk onto Headon Warren from the house which provides stunning views of the island. All three generations had a lovely time.

Loved the house. Great stargazing from the terrace! Beautiful beach so close, excellent recycling facilities, fabulous separate downstairs area for my mum who came with us. I'd go back and I rarely say that!

We enjoyed a really super holiday at the House of Logs. Very nice, quiet location close to the footpath to Totland Bay. Our grandchildren really enjoyed swimming in the evening at the bay (like the locals), also one evening we barbequed on the beach which was great fun! House of Logs was spotlessly clean and had virtually every thing you could possibly want. I would certainly recommend it to family and friends.

This property exceeded our expectations! We all absolutely loved our holiday in House of logs! Beautiful, comfortable, great location for walks and seaside. Lots of homey touches, games and puzzles for children and adults. Children loved having food for squirrels and birds and fed them daily. Guides on where to find everything nad local shops was very useful. Birds Guide book was a hit with children too. Local leaflets also useful to plan time on isle of wight.

A lovely place to stay where you can get a family or group together.
