A marvellous find as our visitors said, and the added bonus of fresh eggs every day. Wonderful. Exceedingly helpful and obliging owners, who were happy to spend time with us giving advice about places to visit in the locality. And willing to promote local Isle of Wight industry.

We had a fantastic week at Sunset Cottage! The photos don't do the cottage and surrounding gardens justice, you could be in Italy or the South of France. It is so quiet and peaceful and the hosts are virtually silent but so friendly. The house is better stocked than anywhere we've been before and the welcome pack was fantastic after a long journey. Our 7 year old son loved the chickens and finding eggs for breakfast and very much enjoyed the pool although at 21 degrees it was a bit too cold for us adults! The games room was good fun and being right on the round the island cycle path is great too. Location wise our only gripe is the lack of a corner shop, it's a good 20 minute round trip to the nearest food shop although the White Mouse Inn is within walking distance. Cannot recommend highly enough!

An idyllic place, set in beautifully tended, extensive grounds with its own bullrush pond and crochet lawn. Oozing natural French farmhouse charm every plant, every detail seems effortlessly perfect. Large, handsomely designed pool enclosed in old stone walls verdant with lush plants, fresh herbs and flowers leading to a huge barn with table tennis, table football and a piano. Dine under the shade of the beech trees, breakfast in the sun on the garden sofa or simply loll by the pool. Spacious, comfortable, well appointed and tasteful interior with large flatscreen TV and very reliable internet. Very welcoming, kind and attentive hosts. This is the perfect retreat and a real balsam for the soul.

Lovely, really friendly owners who don't interfere but are on hand for questions about the area etc

Absolutely lovely hosts / owners who allowed us to leave our bikes in a secure place, offered tips on places to go and fresh eggs from their fabulous hens. Really lovely property - perfect for our needs - and in an ideal location for walking and cycling. Super comfy bed in the main bedroom (didnt try the others) and great showers. Pool looked gorgeous - would love to come back again and try it out in warmer weather. Oh and an amazing TV too for watching movies on dark autumnal evenings, complete with surround sound. Felt like going to the cinema!

Magical stay at Sunset Cottage, pool was a special treat and warm considering it’s unheated. Location perfect for exploring the island. Owners couldn’t be more welcoming and friendly, already booked again for next year

an absolute gem! I would happily return tomorrow. we loved the house, it is spacious, great layout, beautiful decor and the large pool was just the icing on the cake. there is a table tennis , chickens to tend to if you wish and beautiful walks near by. there is an amazing view of the needles from one of the bedrooms. it was the perfect place for our family of four. I would happily recommend it.
Mr Horton July 2020
We had a lovely stay. The owners were so welcoming. We all appreciated the rural aspect the cottage had to offer which allowed us to explore the West of the Island. The children also particularly enjoyed the chickens and the excitement of finding an egg for breakfast!! A very special place - thank you!

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 !
Mr Brookes July 2019
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.
Mr Wheatley June 2019
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.
