Lovely, well equipped cottage in a rural location. Well furnished and comfortable house which was appreciated given the wet weather we had.

This house is just perfect. All the family loved it. The decoration and furnishing is really a must and the pool was the cherry on top of the cake !

Place and drinks mats would have been helpful. Could not see a carbon monoxide alarm. Beds sooo comfortable :o) Fabulous cottage in beautiful, peaceful location. Really enjoyed our stay. We loved the chickens but mess in the garden was a problem.

So glad you enjoyed the cottage, the owners' free range birds do stroll around the parking area, but should be fenced off from the garden; we'll double check this with the Island team. We've also checked with the team and they have advised that the carbon monioxide alarrm is integral to the smoke alarm. Tressa, Customer Support

This is a lovely cottage, in a beautiful setting, perfectly situated for exploring the whole island. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well-equipped, the beds were really comfortable, and the pool was an added bonus in the hot weather. The owners couldn't have given us a warmer welcome and were really kind and helpful, despite having only a couple of hours notice of our arrival.

This is a recently refurbished cottage in a very rural and tranquil location. If you get the weather you also have the bonus of a swimming pool. The cottage has everything you would expect and the owners live in the house next door so anything you need you only have to ask. When we come back to the IoW we will try and book this again. Lovely country retreat.
