It's so wonderful to hear that you had a lovely stay at The Shute, so much so that you're already planning a repeat visit. We're looking forward to welcoming you back. Julie, Customer Support

Beautiful house and gardens, with amazing sea views and wonderful wildlife including red squirrels . Friendly caring owners who left lovely treats for us to enjoy. Loveliest location on the island if you like peace and tranquility.

A perfect location the property came complete with its own personal red squirrels!

Lovely property with fantastic views of the sea. John and Caroline provided a lovely welcome pack and provided really useful information about the area.

The cottage was very spacious with wonderful sea views from virtually every room. The hosts were thoughtful and helpful, providing the best welcome pack we've ever received as well as produce from their garden. The location was perfect, being close to many attractions.

We will definitely consider returning at some point. Our hosts were lovely, very friendly and accommodating. The fabulous gift baskets, both for the humans and our dog were so thoughtful. Truly a lovely place to relax and 'get away from it all'. Thank you, very much.

This was our second stay at the Shute. Both times have been wonderful visits. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the cottage very comfortable - we didn't want to leave it. The wifi is of a good speed if that is important to you - my husband needed that for work. The owner has made sure that the cottage extremely well provided for & she is extremely thoughtful - Not only did the she leave us a welcome pack (bread, butter, milk plus a pack of Isle of wight produce) which was great, but also soap in the bathrooms, washing up liquid & dishwasher tablets and extra toilet rolls. All much appreciated and went to making our holiday so much easier.

The hosts were very welcoming and provided advice on local walks and amenities, and supportive in relation to late changes in ferry bookings by Wightlink

A beautiful Victorian house and garden with stunning sea views. The house is very comfortably furnished and in inclement weather the conservatory kept us warm and still provided a beautiful view of the garden and sea. Well placed for the botanical gardens and dining out in Ventnor. V Turner

The Shute is a fabulous place to use as a base to explore the island, or just to laze around in the garden. Enjoy a barbecue in the evening with friends/family and then gather together in the conservatory or the huge, relaxing sitting room later for drinks and great conversation. If you're after a peaceful get-away then this is the place for you.

Absolutely perfect break for our family, the setting was beautiful, the house is magnificent and our hosts were fantastic and informative. From the moment we arrived with the wonderful welcome pack, including one specifically for the dog, we were made to feel at home and instantly relaxed

We had a wonderful holiday at the Shute, Mr and Mrs Russell were lovely and the property is beautiful. We hope to return sometime next year.

We had a lovely stay at The Shute on the Isle of Wight. The house had everything you could need and the sea views were amazing. We would definitely recommend staying there.

The house was very well cleaned, well fitted out with comfy beds and quality linen. A warm greeting and thoughtful welcome items gave us a feeling of being welcomed Guests. We would have no hesitation in returning to The Shute.
